Spring 2014 Hair Trends braids waves bobs Gel Salon Cary Hair

The runways and awards shows are setting up the hair trends for Spring 2014.  I'll be covering them in stages over the next couple of posts.For the first segment: braids and waves.

From bobs to long hair soft waves are the texture of the season.  A relaxed new turn to last season's perfect curls without going flat iron crazy, your hair will thank you, and your face will be flatteringly framed.  Take it to the top with a deep side part, or go big with volume on top.

Braids are the prettiest solution to an imperfect hair day.  From traditional and polished, to new twists like double fishtail, milkmaid braids are a staple for spring hair.  If you don't gel with that look, a quick and romantic over the shoulder braid does the job nicely!

Happy Hair!


A little recap of some of the most beautiful makeup, dresses, and, of course- hair.  If you have any thoughts on this year's Golden Globes join the discussion on our Facebook page here.   We'd love to here what you have to say, especially any cut or color requests inspired by these lovely ladies!  Have a beautiful day.


Another great video from the stylists at Moroccan Oil.  They are masters of beautiful and realistic  everyday hair.  This video is a streamlined how-to for a messy updo for those days when your hair won't cooperate, or you just need it out of your way.  This quick twist is easy to change up: moving the part, pulling different pieces out, and altering the height of the twist in the back lend so many options to a simple and lovely updo.
