Her beau’s famous coif may have been named one of the “most influential cuts of 2011,” but Selena Gomez is enjoying a little time in the spotlight with her colorful new look. Right before she went on her South African tour, the pop star stopped by Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood, CA, to have some multicolored extensions added to her ‘do. “The color selection for Selena was based on her wardrobe for her tour,” says Nikki Lee, the salon’s co-owner. “She wanted to do something fun and different without damaging her hair. The Great Lengths extensions we added in were perfect for this!” When it comes to selecting color for a look like this, Nikki says there are a couple rules to consider. “Don’t choose colors based on your client’s existing shade of hair,” she says. “Instead, make sure to choose colors that will complement her skin tone and go well with her wardrobe.” Also, select shades from the same color family. “Selena decided on all jewel tone colors. If you do too many colors that don’t go with each other, your trendy new hair is no longer trendy—it’s tacky! I wouldn’t recommend adding in more than three colors,” Nikki says.

Natural and absolutely unique: every woman’s aspiration to beauty comes to life in the new Flamboyance Diva S/S 2012 collection signed by Davines Artistic Director, Angelo Seminara. A daily splendor drawing inspiration from the great style icons from the past, without falling into any of the Hollywood clichés, but grasping all their refinement, revisited in simple, contemporary and easy-to-wear looks.
Flamboyance Diva is dedicated to women who are committed to living their daily challenges with the desire to feel special without looking artificial, who enhance their uniqueness in a simple and spontaneous way, thanks to choices of styles in harmony with their essence. Women who stand out with a charisma that goes beyond fashions: the character of Lauren, a medium-long haircut proposed in three styling versions ranging from wavy to pluckily curly; the essentiality of Audrey, a daring extra-short cut with tidy or untidy up-styled fringe; the sensuality of Brigitte, a profusion of free-falling hair or up-styles gather with apparent carelessness; the liveliness of Marylin, medium-length waves, sometimes more defined, soft or vibrating.
Touches of style that give rise to images of great intensity, built on light and organic shapes combined with fresh and feminine nuances, enhanced by the neutral tones of garments and the graphic impact of make-up, with strongly marked magnetic eyes and soft, natural looking lips.
The secret of this new application of Flamboyance is the sense of natural refinement interpreted in warm tone on tone nuances (light copper, peach, tobacco, sand, honey ) that celebrates an easy-chic woman, focusing once again on the revolutionary Flamboyage colour service.

World-famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this year, and you know what that means—spring is coming early so it’s time to get your digits ready for the season. Shades typically lighten up each spring, but instead of going sheer, this year’s crop of pastels stays rich and creamy—think smooth purples, bright blues, and fresh and yummy neutrals. Here’s a quick guide to the season’s hottest hues: Lovely Lavender—Purple nails are this season’s secret weapon. No matter the shade, purple looks great with every skin tone. Nice is Nice from Essie’s spring collection is a supremely happy spring wisteria color. Blue’s Clues—Whether you choose a shade of Tiffany Box or Robin’s Egg, pale blue absolutely screams spring. Natural Nudes—Neutrals maintain the au natural spring-like feel and look refreshingly demure, just don’t match the nude shade too closely to your client’s skin tone. Instead, opt for a few shades lighter or darker. Try Essie’s Sand Tropez, then kick it up a notch by adding a thin line of a bright color, like nail techs did at Parabal Gurung’s spring show.
