Blum has styled some very famous heads over the last three decades, and Makeovers Salon + Spa has won Boston Magazine’s ‘Best of Boston’ and ‘Readers’ Choice’ Awards over 18 times in all beauty categories. He is a Northeast cutting and styling champion and has consulted on hairstyles for Good Housekeeping and Brit + Co.
Blum, who served on the L’Oreal stylist team at last Fall’s Milan Fashion Week, is on the cutting edge (pun intended!) when it comes to spotting head-turning trends for 2016. Among Blum’s observations and recent introductions by him and his team at Makeovers Salon + Spa (http://makeoverssalon.com/) :
- Hair painting – Techniques done so we can’t see where the color is coming from or going to. Some colors will be dictated by how they best contour facial features.
- Color contouring -- It's all about placement and the shades.
- Color palettes – Burgundies, purples, vivid blues, teals and blue blacks. Gone this season are the Crayola selection of strong M&M shades and pastels.
- ‘Ecaille’ / tortoise shell -- Taking three or more sympathetic shades and working them through the hair to create movement; may be applied to any portion of the hair shaft roots, ends. Creates a kaleidoscope effect; adds volume to fine hair for dimension.
- Blondes take a turn towards warmer shades of strawberry, bronze , and apricot. These shades breathe life into lighter skin and can be custom mixed by an educated colorist to pair with most skin colors; can easily be worked into the bolder clothing that we will be seeing as well as the ivory lacy looks that will be mixed with leather a la McQueen.
