Much as we hate to say it, summer is wrapping up fast. The kids are back in school, and even though the weather is still mostly gorgeous here on the BC coast, you can tell that the air is changing. So! What are you going to do with your hair this season? Autumn is a great time to make a change and here at Sin 7 Salon we've got you covered with the latest haircut trends, so let's take a look courtesy of Bazaar online.
First up, the always lovely J. Lo with her collar bone-length piecey layered cut. You could call this a "lob", but technically it's got too much layering to be considered a true bob. Notice the subtle baliyage highlights? So pretty!
Next up in the mid-length department is Naomi Watts, with a slightly angled bob. Her ends have a bit of texture on the bottom (or the perimeter as us stylists call it), but her long layers are quite sliced out or razored, giving this cut lots of movement. This cut is a nice option for hair that's on the finer side that's straight or with a little bit of wave because it doesn't have a lot of density or weight removed, and since the length sits right above the shoulders the perimeter doesn't break up, giving it a thicker looking line. Her color is right on trend too, with the root area being a shade or two darker than the mid-ends' baby blonde.
Moving up in length is Rachel McAdams, with a jaw-length classic bob with a bit of texture or slicing through the ends. The deep side part styling gives this look a bit of an asymmetric edge as does the loose, flick-ey finish. Her color keeps with the recent trend of subtle baliyage highlights, no more than a few shades lighter than the base color and it looks like a little bit of ombre on the last inch or so of length. Very pretty and wearable for all but the thickest/curliest hair types. (Thick and curly can wear bobs too, but the result looks quite different from this which sits closer to the head.)

In the topsy-turvey world of international monetary value, currently the Canadian dollar is sitting at about $.77 US. That's not that great for us Canadians who like to cross the border to hit Target and Trader Joes, but it's awesome for Americans who live near the Peace Arch or truck crossing in Washington to come up and get some great deals across the line! FYI, Sin 7 Salon in beautiful White Rock, BC is a 5 - 7 minute drive from the Peace Arch crossing, and maybe 9 minutes from the Pac Hwy/truck crossing, and we have all of your Aveda needs covered including skincare and makeup! You'll save approximately 20% or more depending on that day's exchange rate.
We will happily take your all-green American cash dollars, but at par so $1 = $1. You'll get a better deal if you use Visa/Mastercard. Dust off that passport or Nexus card, hop in the car and head to White Rock's only Aveda Concept salon to save a ton on your favorite Aveda products! Ask us for a lunch recommendation when you're here, as we are in-the-know about most of the restaurants and wine bars in the area. :)
We hope to see our American friends soon! 1195 Johnston Rd in White Rock (at Five Corners, corner of Johnston Rd. and Pacific Ave - ask your google map how to find us). Phone ahead to make sure we have what you'd like in stock and we'll set it aside for you - 604-560-5360.
A Monday night at Sin 7 Hair Salon consisted of our wonderful stylists doing a photo shoot after already putting in an 8 hour day! Clearly, these ladies just love work too much! Our stylists Chantelle, Dana, Grit, and Katherine gave our lovely models beautiful up-dos while our wonderfully talented stylist AND makeup artist (yes, she is a double threat!) Telsa did the makeup! (Telsa this day did not do any up-dos, because she was already so busy doing make up! But if you check out our Instagram page you can catch some of her work!).
For our photo shoot the stylists had free range of what they wanted to do and boy, did they come up with some great stuff! Here are some behind the scene shoots before we get into the good stuff!
It feels like summer down at the salon! Our stylists are sporting the dresses, sandals, and the A/C is on in full swing! So to get our guests summer ready here are some summer hair trends from Glamour Magazine! These styles are from the runway such as Dolce and Gabana, Bailman, and many more. But thankfully these are some easy up-do's to get you out of the house and down to the beach in style.
Trend #1: Half and Half
Ah, yes, the oh so easy, but oh so stylish, half and half is back. This one is sure to get you out of the house in no time! This is one of our stylist (Chantelle's) go to style when client's want a new everyday look that takes no time.
Trend #2: Accessories
Now by accessories, no, we do not mean baseball caps! We work so hard to get that beautiful colour of yours why cover it up? We mean a little something-something to draw all the attention to the hair. A little flower, a bejewelled pin, or maybe even a flower crown (my personal favourite, because I feel like such a queen).
The accessories can add to your look...

Trend #3: Braids
This is a trend that I think will never go out of style. I mean, the pig tail braids have gone out of style, but the side braids are definitely being rocked this year (and last year). Braids can be a difficult trend to get the hang of though. I find it depends on the day whether my braid looks beautiful, or like a 5 year old did it. To help with the difficulty of a side braid or a bang braid here are some REALLY awesome youtube videos to help you get the look.
Well it seems as if I already rock this “trendy” hairstyle and I didn’t even know it! This trend is a do not even need to wash your hair or brush it type of trend. Well I guess you will have to put a little more effort into this hairstyle then I do to look like these ladies on the runway! But something to throw into the mix to change up the normal ponytail is crimping parts of your hair!
