Blunt Haircuts for All Lengths

Thick, healthy hair is always in style, and we want to show you how to get the look. Whether you have hair down to your bum, or to your collarbone, you can definitely achieve this hot Spring look. It seems people are straying away from layers and are moving towards styles that are all one length, with tons of weight and volume at the ends of the hair. Want to give this look a go? Here is what you need to know to look absolutely FABULOUS!

The Short Bob

If you have hair that is anywhere from chin-length to above your collarbone, then you are most likely rocking a bob. Cutting your hair all one length, with no layers, creates a dramatic, yet very polished look that will totally turn heads. Your hair will look thick, healthy and super glamorous. Plus, this style looks awesome with a bit of texture added for a playful look. Our inspirations for this super trendy hairstyle are definitely Jennifer Lawrence and Taylor Swift. These talented ladies can pull off this look casual or super glamorous (and so can you).

The Medium Length “Lob”

The “lob” is definitely hot in the hair world right now. This look consists of length anywhere from your collarbone to your shoulders, and it is actually very flattering on most women. Keeping this look one length or even a bit a-line is super trendy and easy to wear on a daily basis. With the weight at the bottom of the hair, this look is really easy to style and keep looking fresh, whether it is curled, straightened, or worn in your natural texture. We love the “lob” on Lucy Hale and Khloe Kardashian.

The Long, One Length “Do”

Keeping long hair looking healthy can be a challenge if you don’t have the right haircut. The easiest way to ensure a fresh-looking do is to chop your hair to one length, keeping weight and thickness at the bottom. Face-framing layers are great to add to break up the hair a bit, but with the majority of the hair kept to the same length, your hair will look super awesome. This hair cut is perfect for the girl who likes to braid her hair on throw it up in a top-knot because you don’t have to worry about little layers poking out of your “do.” Our go-to long, healthy hair inspiration is totally Olivia Palermo and Mila Kunis.

Oscars 2016 Recap: The Hair Styles

A star-studded event is sure to have some beautiful celebrities rocking some pretty amazing hair styles. This year, the Academy Awards did not disappoint. Stars walked the red carpet with their perfect tresses and gave us some major inspiration. We saw everything from slicked back looks to soft, glamorous waves, and we can’t wait to share them with you. Take a look!

Voluminous and Off the Face: The voluminous look was definitely a hit this Oscar season. We saw stars like Chrissy Teigan and Jennifer Garner wear this look beautifully. To recreate this look at home simply tease the top half of your hair, put the lower half back into a low bun, and add some hairspray. It’s super simple and super glamorous.
Lady Gaga
Glamorous Waves: Lady Gaga and Cate Blanchett wore beautiful, glamorous waves for the Oscars this year. This sleek, structured hair style is extremely glamorous and helps keep the focus on their dresses. To create this look at home curl your hair with a large barrel, with all the curls going the same way. Use your fingers and some sculpting cream to mold the curls together.
Parted and Pulled Back: Parted down the middle and pulled back on the sides seemed to be a big theme this Oscar Sunday. This look is extremely sleek and can also be gorgeous for day-time and work wear. Brie Larson and Alicia Vickander stole the red carpet with their amazing looks.

Layer Short and Long, We Love Them All!

Layers are an amazing way to spice up your look and add some movement to your hair. You can go dramatic with your layers and create an entirely new vibe with your hair or simply freshen up your style by adding some body to your hair. The choice is yours, but both are great options-especially for the Spring time!

Lighten Your Load

Spring is all about that light, airy, fresh feeling, so why not give your hair the same feeling? A short, choppy, layered look is perfect for a new beginning and a chance to step out of your comfort zone. Plus, your hair will feel light as a feather and out of your face when the weather warms up. We love this look on celebrity Jenna Elfman. She looks chic and sophisticated but still playful!

Freshen Up Your Tresses

Adding layers to your long hair is a great way to freshen up your look for the Spring. Having long hair that is all one length can be heavy and start to look dull if it is not kept freshly trimmed. So add some long, subtle layers to your look and you will feel lighter and look fresh without having to make a drastic change. Selena Gomez pulls off the long, layered look flawlessly and we are obsessed!

Frame That Face

Face-framing layers are an excellent option for hair that needs a bit of life. This style can add more dimension to your hair and make your hair style really suit your face shape. At the salon, simply ask for face-framing layers and they will give you a cut that is best suited for your hair type and face shape. This style is super easy to style and it gives your hair amazing body. We are huge fans of this look and are forever in love with Jennifer Aniston’s layers!
Freshen up your hair with some layers and you will be ready to look fabulous for Spring. Call us to book an appointment. Remember to follow us on Instagram @johnfrancisbeauty and on Twitter @jfrancisbeauty!

2016’s Biggest Hair Trends

Well, we made it through the first month of 2016. We hope you are all having a great start of your year. We thought we would share this year’s biggest hair cut trends with you today. Whether you want to switch up your look a bit or do a dramatic change, here is our guide to staying stylish with you hair this year.
Now, on to the trends!

#1: Long, Textured Layers

It is no surprise that the “beach-babe,” wavy look is still going strong. This look is so chic and stylish and gives you a super laid-back vibe. Ask your stylist to give you some layers, and perhaps some high and low-lights to enhance the texture and you are set. This is the perfect style for someone who just feels like their hair needs a bit of life, but they don’t want to do anything drastic. Check out how Cara DeLevigne rocks this look. AMAZING!

#2: Short, Retro Bob

Go BOLD this year and rock a short bob haircut. This haircut would look amazing on so many different hair textures. As for the length, anywhere from cheekbone to chin length will really give you that retro feel. Add some choppy bangs and you will be looking like you walked straight out of Gatsby. Now, remember this haircut is a serious commitment, so be sure to communicate with your stylist clearly about your vision before diving in. We love this look on model Heather Kemesky. So BOLD!

#3: Mid-length, Polished Bob

This interesting variation of the classic bob is the new “it girl” haircut. Cut to the shoulders with long layers gives you that sexy vibe, but the blunt edge makes you look super polished and sleek. This might just be the haircut that gives you the best of both worlds. When you style this look focus on shine and sleekness to keep your hair from looking too frizzy. Khloe Kardashian pulls off the mid-length, polished bob flawlessly. WORK IT GIRL!
We hope this have you some 2016 style inspiration. Whether you want a subtle change or you want to make a bold statement, changing your look is so much fun.
