Best Hairstyle Trends by Color Type

I have been perusing the pages of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar and have noticed a beautiful theme among the pages as far as hairstyle trends this year are concerned. The balayage hairstyle is all the rage! Of course I called the best hairstylist in Memphis,  April Rankin of Eva Salon and Boutique so that I could get with the trend! In this post, you will see my hair transformation, as well as some of my favorite hairstyle trends categorized by color types.


Needless to say, today we had to do a lot of damage control on my head. With split ends and brassy tones, I needed a complete hair makeover and April was determined to work her magic in delivering the complete transformation that I needed. She mixed several different colors to accomplish the balayage hair trend that we were trying to accomplish which had me nervous as my hair is very thin and I was concerned it could fry. April assured me that the process she uses would be safe and enriching to my hair.

I think we can all agree that she totally nailed it with the hairstyle trend we were going for, a beautiful brown balayage with deep undertones and dirty brown/blonde highlights.  After the finishing touches were applied, I felt like a completely new woman!

Hair Extensions for Brown Hair

I was due for a much needed haircut and after talking more about my new spring style with April, she recommended extensions for beautiful mermaid hair! Of course, after chatting about it for a while, the amazing April with Eva Salon broke me of being an extension virgin and I am so over the moon about it!

April uses the habit hand tied extension method with Covet and Mane extensions. We added 18 inches to my head. My new hair felt so natural and to my surprise has not bothered me one bit. Here are my before hair extensions pictures.

and now for the fabulous transoformation!
