We’ve gotta get out of this place. Hair inspired by chic getaways can even take the curse off the quotidian!
Need to get away from it all? Some of the most liberated hair in America is being unleashed where the snow falls the deepest: Salon Myo, Aspen, Colorado. The industry’s quintessential free-spirit Marcus Daniels, Wella Senior World Educator, has partnered with Eric Lindsey in his lofty new digs located near the gondola, surrounded by world-class art galleries. He comments, “Aspen’s more than a mile high, so Salon Myo elevates the art of hair to match our location, bringing together elite global talent. Our VIP room is the most happening party in the West.” Daniels adds that getting into the resort vibe is mostly a matter of attitude shampoo only once or twice a week, and indulge hair with weekly hydrating mask treatments while you laze about, beverage in hand.
For escapist color: fire up the beauty blender with a rainbow of bright, succulent juices, and mix to taste. For the new resort “Unison” Collection, Gila Rut Aveda Salons in San Diego whip up frothy apricot blends, and freshen white-ice blondes with a garnish of crème de menthe. Most mouthwatering: a fresh wedge of tart lime-green fringe, styled to contrast slate-amethyst locks. According to salon owner Keri Davis, these looks don’t require a passport to feel like a vacation: “Many holiday-resort looks are also be worn by our clients right in their own hometown by day, or also just about anywhere in the evenings.”
Break away. Hop the red-eye to open your Third Eye. Pack your bag with morsels from the Acne Studios Resort 2014 Collection: fluid satins, iridescent sequins and shaved fur. Runway stylist Franco Gobbi for Moroccanoil also suggests that you pack Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, even if you’re marooned on a desert island. To get his runway look, start by twisting long hair into a low, easy ponytail. Spray, wrap ponytail around itself, pin into place. Then “shake and rake” for free-flowing waves. How far out into the rising surf you can throw your cell phone?
