For medium and long-haired gals, nothing's better than a ponytail for beating the summer heat. Getting that hair up and off your neck keeps you cool, and it's a classic look that never goes out of style. That being said, why not change it up a little for the upcoming season? We've found a great gallery of fresh ponytail ideas at Elle.com. Here are a few:
Constant trendsetter Rihanna wears a super-full, high ponytail with tons of volume. Great for gals with thick, wavy hair.
Olivia Wilde sports a trendy bubble ponytail. Make a ponytail, then add elastics in regular intervals down to the last few inches. Then pull/puff out the hair between the elastics. If you don't have enough length, consider adding some clip- or tape-in extensions. Easy, stylish, and a little different.
Uber-blonde style chameleon Gwen Stefani channel's 80's vixen Terry Nunn with her black dip-dyed ends. This high ponytail has the top left out and styled to the side from a deep part for an asymmetric look. Be sure to wrap some strands around the base to hide the elastic and pull the whole thing together.
There are lots more pictures at Elle.com - 17 to be exact, so check them out and let us know if you have any questions about how to do them. Consultations are always free at Sin 7 Salon. 604-560-5360 in White Rock, BC. We love to do hair!

YAY! Congratulations to our long-time guest Joan, whose name was drawn on April 1 as the winner of our referral contest! Joan won free services for 1 year at Sin 7 Salon, just for referring 3 or more guests to us between January 1 and March 31. Each guest who referred at least 3 new people during that time was entered in the draw, and Courtney pulled her name out of the hat. HUGE MEGA THANK YOU to everyone who participated! We've really loved meeting all of your friends, family, neighbors, bank tellers, baristas, etc., and we sincerely hope they enjoyed coming in to Sin 7 Salon.
Have we got a contest for you, and it's super easy - all you have to do is share the Sin 7 Salon love and send us your friends and family (and neighbors, coworkers, shopkeepers, local politicians, etc.) for beautification! Here's how it works:
For every 3 referrals between now and March 31, we'll enter you in the draw. Send us 6? You'll get 2 entries. Want to be a hero and send us 9? You'll triple your chances with 3 entries! Easy peasy!
We will do the tracking, just make sure whoever you send gives us your name at the time of their booking.
You'll both get our "Lead a Friend Into Sin 7" reward - a gratis Aveda Masque Treatment with mini hand massage! (Yes, when you send us 3 people we'll give you 3 treatments, etc.; it's our way of saying "Thanks, you're awesome!")
Prize = services for 1 year - $50 per month or $600 total. YAY!
Contest begins Jan 1 and runs through March 31, 2016**; prize draw is on April 1.
Next time you're in we'll give you as many of our cards and brochures as you'd like to help you spread the word. Just let us know - we've got lots! GOOD LUCK! We can't wait to meet your friends. :)
**The people you refer must have their appointment before March 31 for the referral to be eligible
Yikes is it ever getting dark early these days! What better way to perk yourself up than by trying something new with your hair? Let's check out some of this season's trends for a little pre-holiday pick-me-up, courtesy of Elle.
Textured fringe as seen on Kerry Washington. Piecey, brow-skimming bangs are feeling cool this winter! Low maintenance as far as fringe is concerned - maybe every 4 - 5 weeks? Embrace the imperfect!
