Time for a lesson of 'less is more' from TIGI.  Alice + Olivia brought this simple bun back last fall, and it is the perfect polished look for women on the move, as easy as a ponytail, but more mature.

Ready to try something new with your hair?  If you have long locks this is a great twist to your style.  The faux hawk ponytail shown here is edgy enough to be noticed but still soft so that it doesn't take over your look.

 A shorter hair version of the tousled curls and volume that has been everywhere this year.  This look is especially great for anyone with frizz in their hair.   If you have a bit of a wonky wave in your hair this is a perfect styling technique to work with your natural texture rather than trying to beat it into submission.

With all the big hair and loose curls hitting the scene this Spring, it's time to revisit a tried and true method for big waves and curls with body to boot.  Roller sets are a retro solution to getting hair to hold texture.  Setting the hair allows the hair to accept the curl, keeping it big and beautiful for hours.   And as you can see, it looks great pulled into an updo or down.

Take your own selfie ala Miranda Kerr when you come in for yours at Gel- we'll make you a Gel Salon Celebrity!

It seems like Spring today, so I had to embrace the fresh air with a decidedly airy trend.  Flower crowns are a big trend this year: in street style, on runways, and for brides.  With a few of the most dramatic crowns gathered above for inspiration, and a DIY youtube video to make your own flowered adornment, I hope you're inspired to embrace Spring today!
