JCI Hair School: Silver is the New Gold

Image: Samantha Ravndahl on Instagram @ssssamanthaa Silver is no longer second place- it's number one right now for hair colour trends. Why are young women and men jumping on the silver hair train? Because it's cool! (Pardon the pun). Silver hair colours blend cool ash tones with hints of smoky blue and violet, and the result is a totally customized silver for your hair. The best part- it fades to a beautiful platinum blonde. What's not to love? A trendy tone, long lasting toner, a beautiful fade out. If you want to try it on, you'll have to li...

They have a shorter wavelength than UVA rays, however they are stronger and more damaging to the skin. It is the UVB rays that cause our skin to tan, but a...

JCI Hair School: Fades and Undercuts

What is a fade? Or an undercut? We are seeing them pop up everywhere on men and women, including high fashion. A fade is any cut that shows an extreme short side or sides and a longer, disconnected top. We're even seeing this trend under long hair, with or without designs, and on bob haircuts too. Men are wearing it with full beards or the classic five o'clock shadow. So add a fade to your pixie, or classic mens shape and make it a pompadour with a longer front. Too shy to try? Go for an undercut in your nape to lose some weight to your hair and sh...

JCI Hair School: How to Wear Your Hair to Music Festivals

Well, it's here. Festival season has officially started with Coachella kicking off this year's music festivals in sunny California, bringing together crowds of hippies, hipsters and music lovers alike. Braids and waves will be at the forefront of the hairstyles we'll see this summer. They lend to a very bohemian, undone, loose look.
