On the Trend: Eye Skimming Bangs

Taylor Swift. Zooey Deschanel. Lea Michele. All sporting our favorite trend of the season: bangs! Or fringe, if you’re fancy. Bangs that delicately graze your eyes are in fashion! Instead of straight across bangs or blunt bangs, ask your stylist for lightly layer your bangs to soften your features. Bangs can dramatically change your appearance and add a touch of sophistication to your overall look.

Should you get bangs?

  • Bangs can hide forehead wrinkles. Instantly take years off your face!
  • Bangs highlight your eyes.
  • If you have a receding hairline or a wide forehead, you may want to opt for bangs.
  • Bangs need to be trimmed often, so they can be high maintenance. Some of our stylists offer complimentary bang trims.
  • Bangs need to be styled. Do you have time to style them every morning?

To style your bangs like in the photo above

  • Remember to style your bangs when they’re damp. Bangs are harder to style once they’re already dried.
  • Blow dry your bangs side to side until they’re mostly dried.
  • Then blow dry down with a round brush to create a soft bevel.
  • Apply a bit of Bumble & Bumble’s Spray De Mode to create a bit of texture and hold.

What Makes Us the Best Hair Colorists in Temecula and Murrieta?

Here at La Mode Salon, we eat sleep and breathe color. An expert color specialist in Temecula is really hard to come by mainly because hair coloring is a mix of science and creativity. Coloring your hair means more than just “slapping” on color. There are several factors we must take into account such as hair texture, length of hair, previous color history, porosity, percentage of grey, resistance to color, etc. Find a stylist who has undergone multiple advanced color courses. The difference between a good colorist and a great one is education. Here at La Mode Salon (Hair Salons in Murrieta), we believe in continuing education to better serve your color needs.

Blow Dry Bar in Murrieta & Temecula

Hair Salons in Murrieta

What is a blow dry bar? A blow dry bar is a salon that focuses mainly on blow outs (ie blow dry & style). If you’re not up to the challenge of blow drying and styling your own hair, leave it up to the professionals and you’ll look perfect every time. It’s also great for those who are going out for the night and want to look to look their absolute best! Blow out styles can be as simple as a smooth sleek look or Kim Kardashian curls or elegant updos for that important event. While La Mode Salon is not strictly a blow dry bar (we’re a full service salon), we offer the most polished blow outs! So before you go out dancing, bring along a group of friends to experience our blow outs.
Every Blow Out comes with a deep conditioning treatment as well as a relaxing scalp massage.

The Ibiza Round Brush

It’s not a round brush. It’s an IBIZA. Made in Spain.

The secret is out! The key to Victoria’s Secret inspired hair is the Ibiza round brush.

This handcrafted brush has a cork handle which is virtually weightless. Made from first cut boar bristle, you’re able to run it through the hair, twirl it, pull it or however and it won’t get stuck or tug at your hair. Unlike metal round brushes which tend to get too hot and potentially burn your scalp, the natural bristles absorb much of the heat. The Ibiza brushes give a soft shine to the hair by smoothing down the cuticle without being abrasive. We have several Ibiza brushes that are each designed for different hair types.

Though we are not a blow dry bar in Temecula, we offer the same sexy blow dry & style service at our Salons in Murrieta, CA!

On the Trend: Lana Del Rey Glamour Waves

We can all thank Lana Del Rey for super charging the trend for the vintage, Hollywood Glamour hair. Her voluminous waves and gorgeous copper tone color has been inspiring us to give a little bit of Lana to every one in our chair.  We have the formula for this delightful color posted on our refrigerator door. Yes, we are obsessed.

3 Easy Ways to Control Frizz

We know frizzy hair is not flattering, so we’ve come up with several ways for you to look great in any weather.

  •   We are in love with Arrojo’s Defrizz serum for it’s soft sheen and ability to literally DEFRIZZ the hair. It’s incredibly lightweight and doesn’t leave the hair feeling heavy. A small dime size amount onto damp hair is enough to smooth down the hair shaft revealing beautiful frizz-free hair.
  •  Blow dry your hair with the nozzle facing down the hair shaft.  This will smooth down the cuticle.  La Mode Salon carries the Ibiza brushes that are made of 100% natural boar bristles designed to smooth the hair.
  •   Spray the paddle brush with Bumble & Bumble Spray De Mode Hairspray and brush through the hair. This will instantly tame any remaining flyaways and frizz.

We truly believe products work as they are intended as long as you know how to use them. If you are in the Murrieta, CA or Temecula, CA or Inland Empire area, come join us for a hair service, and we’ll gladly show you step by step how to blow dry your hair the way you want.
