Individuality is key for Spring 2006. Styles will reflect the client’s needs and hair type to create effortless, easy-maintenance looks. Popular styles range from asymmetrical haircuts to contemporary-yet-classic neo bobs. Color can be playful, as long as it is believable and works well with the cut.

Nail down a color

Shed short, dark winter nails for tailored, brightly hued hands. Fun, perky colors, such as juicy tangerine, passionate pink, zesty lemon and arresting red, add a playful edge to the simplified look of Spring 2006. Or go nude and buffed with a hint of natural glistening. Pastel pink and sensual lavender complement most complexions and fashion statements. For nails that work with any occasion, choose a color that picks up the undertones of the skin, or dare to go bold with a completely different shade.

Prep for summer

Sun-kissed skin glows as the summer months begin to sizzle. Trends for this season diverge into two themes: bold, powerful energy infused with Mediterranean simplicity, and a fresh, clean “I’m not wearing any makeup” flush. Lavender and olive, pearly red-coral and reddish-brown, and turquoise and golden-yellow will scream deep, bold color with a luxurious, chic edge. For a more relaxed look, keep makeup light with brown sugar-lined eyes, just-pinched cheeks and apple lips.

Dabble in subtlety

With cool, muted colors leading the season, Spring 2006 is awash in a breezy, carefree spirit. Simplify with sleek lines, minimal accessories, pulled-back hair and a fresh, dewy face. Add Mediterranean spice or natural, organic elements inspired by the desert for subtle, yet unmistakable, style.
