Hair trends for 2015 have been short, long and for the first time in a long time, medium (the Lob).

“Although they are completely different looks, the common denominator in each of the three lengths has been ‘structured imperfection’, meaning each style has a precision haircut but is styled to look tousled and sexy”, says Anthony Marsalese of Antonino Salon in Birmingham, Michigan.

All of the stylists at Antonino Salon participate in on-going educational events where they continue to advance their education by staying on top of current trends, forecasting what’s to come and learning the new techniques to achieve those styles.

Check out the gallery below to see what’s hot today!

Antonino's Signature BlowDry

Antonino’s Signature BlowDry

Bigger is Better

Big hair is on the rise (forgive the pun) and by using the best products and styling techniques, it’s easier than ever to achieve.

It begins with the right products

“Using the appropriate products is the foundation for creating big, glamorous looks”, says Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon and Spa in Birmingham, Michigan. “When a guest comes in for a special event, we consult with them about their desired hairstyle, and then we analyze their hair texture and type to determine which products are best to achieve that look”.

Anthony continues by saying “Antonino Salon offers many products for achieving full, bouncy and beautiful hair. Oribe’s ‘Imperial Blowout’, ‘Maximista’, ‘Volumista’ and ‘Grandiose Mousse’ are all excellent choices, as is Moroccanoil’s newest addition ‘Thickening Lotion’. It’s all just a matter of where you’re starting from and where you want to go”.

Then comes the technique

The Antonino Signature BlowDry was derived from a French technique called the French Blow Dry which was created for women who want body, shine and glamorous hair.

“We begin the process by drying sections at the top of the head in the opposite direction of where we’d like the hair to fall” says Anthony. “We then either put a roller in that section or lay it in an over directed position as it cools as we continue onto the next section. When we are through blow-drying the entire head in the same manner, we gently shake the hair into the desired style. The result is beautiful, full hair that is ready for the red carpet”.

All of the stylists at Antonino Salon have been extensively trained in the Antonino Signature BlowDry and are educated on how to teach this method to their guests so they can replicate it at home.

Fash Bash 2015, was held on August 13, 2015 at the DIA and Antonino Salon and Spa was one of the proud sponsors.

Presented by the DIA’s Founders Junior Council, an auxiliary committed to inspire a new generation of art lovers to show their support, Fash Bash is the DIA’s second largest fundraiser of the year.

An exciting runway show was presented by Neiman Marcus, and gave us a taste of what to expect in fashion for fall and winter, 2015.

“There will definitely be a lot of plaid patterns, jewel tones and hem lines that bounce as you move”, said Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon and Spa, adding, “gray tones and a Victorian influence will also be making a huge comeback”. As far as accessories are concerned, look for dress gloves, large cuffs and skinny scarves.

Antonino Salon-come see why we’re the best salon in town.
