cut loose!

Adams_Insights_Picas much as we are all enjoying the remaining weeks of summer and cutting loose to enjoy the season to the max … most of us are already thinking ahead to fall looks.

a fresh hair cut is the number one seasonal beauty must for most women and right now there is plenty of inspiration with the shorter trend in styles …

many clients want to know whether they should consider a bob or a lob. ab creative director mary brunetti explains "both classic and trendy bobs clear the collarbone and typically have more face flattering layers. a lob is below the collar bone length with longer layering around the face".

or maybe you are ready to really cut loose, with a modern shag, which is simply a bob or a lob length with shag layering … which gives hair extra movement.

and what pairs well with the new haircut? re -thinking or brightening highlight placement or tone … perhaps considering balayage highlights to flatter a new haircut or fresh look. most of the new haircuts you see in looks in the link above are enhanced with subtle to not so subtle color dimension. dimensional color makes the movement of your haircut look all the more appealing and just right highlight placement works with the haircut to flatter your facial shape.

for fall, and year-round skin care, we are working closely with environ founder dr. des fernandes, a pioneer in the use of high potency vitamins and peptides to help counteract the harmful effects of the environment and its toll on aging skin. our new ionzyme df medi-skin treatment, launching in september, uses pulsed soundwaves to transport active vitamin molecules deep within the skin for immediate results with pore size, fine lines and overall brightening and firming of skin. this technology is quickly becoming a favorite among media elite, including grey’s anatomy’s ellen pompeo among others and is also featured at the canyon ranch spa.

this summer we celebrated with the entire ab team holding our first ever co-worker appreciation week … lots of food, fun and everyone taking the time to let teammates know how much they appreciate each other.

for me, it was all about gratitude for our wonderful community… our family, friends as well as the business i have put heart and soul into for all these years ... and to our growing body of loyal clients, a warm thank you. we are looking forward to your next visit and to the rest of summer.

cut loose and enjoy!
