Spring Fever!

January 23, 2013 · Posted in: Beauty, Blog, Fashion, Hair, Inspiration, Our Favorites, Stylists Picks

With the zero degree temperatures the past couple of days, all of us at XEX are ready for Spring. A time for change and renewal, Spring is the perfect season to refresh your look.

Spring style has a big seventies influence. This Spring season is all about bold colors, so save the pastels for Easter!

Skin color is glowing and mostly bare, with a bit of color mixed in. Bright turquoise eyeliner and blue swipes of color on the lids are in, as are strong crimson or mulberry lips. Winged eyeliner, big lashes and thick eyebrows are other options for adding some drama and fun to your look. Remember to balance your look, with one feature taking prominence over the others.

For your hair, a tight bun, criss-crossed braised or slicked back look inspired by the seventies is in. You could also go with a more subtle look using a messy up-do, low pony tail or waves. For waves, Aveda’s Be Curly line is awesome. You can enhance waves you already have with the Be Curly Curl Enhancer or control your curls with the new Be Curly Curl Controller. The Aveda Be Curly line is a fantastic way to achieve a great Spring look while still treating your hair right.

Have fun with your accessories this Spring. Sporty bands, thick clips and flowers are a great way to add a fun touch to your look.

Your XEX stylist is always willing to provide you with a free consultation to help you find the perfect Spring look. While it is still pretty freezing in Chicago, getting your Spring style ready is a great way to remind yourself that the season of renewal is just around the corner!
