Go Out With a Bang

WHAT BANGS ARE RIGHT FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE?:
Oval- bangs that barley glaze your eyebrows look best on you (like Zooey Deschanel)
Heart- a shorter side swept bang will balance your more narrow chin
Square- a bit longer than the oval's bang, an eye grazing bang will soften your look
Round- you want to elongate your face with a side swept or blunt bang

Before you think about chopping off your precious locks, find out if bangs are right for your face shape with this VIRTUAL MAKEOVER.

Trending: Braids

They are functional, easy, and also (most importantly) effortlessly gorgeous. You loved how they kept your hair out of your eyes back when you were playing on the monkey bars in elementary school, now they are all grown up! These days, there are all kinds of ways to braid beyond your classic style (there's the Fishtail, French, Edwardian, and at least 10 more types of braids)! This tradition has gotten a new, unconventional edge. Some people even like to mix strands of color that weaves throughout the braid. Check out these styles for inspiration and watch this how-to video to help you achieve the much hyped fishtail braid!


 

One of the most popular braids is the fishtail. Here are a couple of videos to help you achieve this look at home.

Recap: Beth Jackson Art Event

We were so happy to have such a great turn out last night for our first art gallery opening of the year where we gave away goodie bags, listened to live music by Leigh Ann Stevens, and enjoyed drinks with friends. Duo of the evening, mixed media artist, Beth and her hubby, Andy Jackson, provided guests with delicious sweets by FuManChu Cupcakes and divine artwork. Thanks to everyone who was able to come out and support! If you weren't able to make it, no worries, there's still time to purchase some of Beth's artwork at Orange Olive (but HURRY, they're going fast)!

Products We Love: Bumble & Bumble


A LITTLE BUMBLE HISTORY

Bumble and bumble was founded in 1977 in NYC by Michael Gordon on Hairdresser's Row. The next year, the salon was chosen as one of the top 10 salons of the Big Apple. In 1988, Howard McLaren joined Bb and created their signature cutting style. It was in 1990 that Bumble & bumble's first product in their line, Brilliantine, was released. Today, we are proud and excited to continue the legacy of this edgy brand by carrying the latest Bb products in our very own salon, Orange Olive! You can chose from our lovely array of Bb hair care products located in our hallway as soon as you walk in to the salon.

Bb IS PERFECT FOR MEN AND WOMEN!
Bb stylists achieved this look for model, William, with a mixture of prep & Bb texture cream
