Short Hair Trends

It’s empowering, beautiful and bold.  Short Hair. And by all indications, pixie cuts, sassy shags and chopped bobs will be the trends as we wind down 2017.

Stars like Michelle Williams and Katy Perry took their locks up a notch. Scarlett Johansson compliments her short sides with thick bangs.  Jodie Foster is going light-as-air with a feminine bob.

Can’t see yourself with short hair?  Look at these photos for inspiration. And consider this:  in 2017 Pinterest has seen a 120% rise in searches for pixie cuts.  Searches for “shag” are up 220%, on the popular social media site.

So take the bold step and let go of the belief that long hair equals femininity and beauty. You’ll see yourself with a new favorite trend.

It’s here.  Back to School. Our kids are jumping on the school bus, driving to high school for the first time and saying goodbye as they pursue college and careers.  With all of this, now is the chance to reinvent yourself.  We have our favorite styles that will put you at the top of the class.  All you have to do is go for it… give it a try!

Embroidery:  It’s everywhere.  Whether you choose a dress with embroidery all over or find a pair of unique jeans with hints of embroidery, you’re sure to feel special with this great look.  Keep accessories simple and rock this season’s must have!

T-Shirts:  Simple, classic.  We love them especially in the Carolinas.  There are so many different ways to wear your favorite comfy Tee.  Pair it with bold earrings for an eye-catching look or pop on a leather jacket and go rocker.

Sequins:  They’re  not just for clubbing.  Daytime sequins will earn you an A+ in style.  Worried about looking like you’re trying too hard?  Go chill with jeans and casual shoes.  And remember, even a pop of sparkle will make you feel like a million bucks!


Our Favorite Looks from the 30’s!

After a decade of short hair and blunt bobs, the styles in the thirties allowed women to express their femininity.  The decade of Ginger Rogers, Marlene Dietrich and Mae West were full of finger waves, sausage curls and pin curls.  While hair styles in the 20’s were dramatic, the 30’s were soft, romantic, and a bit mysterious.

Take a look at some of our favorites vintage cuts from this era.  Tight curls, big eyes, dramatic lips.  We love the trend and the new modern twist on styles from the thirties.  Add bold jewelry, lace and even a faux fur vest or jacket, and you’re stepping back in time with an historical vibe that will certainly turn heads.

Texture, Sleek, Edgy! Love these looks? Here’s how to get this summer’s hottest trends with ARROJO.

FullSizeRender 2Sleek and Sultry:

Start with ARROJO Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.  To have the sleek and sultry look, you first need beautiful, healthy hair.

Next, mist ARROJO Protective Thickening Lotion into damp hair.  By applying at the roots, you’ll add volume to your crown.

Finally, finish with Healing Oil.  This ARROJO product adds gloss, shine and UV protection! And like your skin, your hair needs to be shielded from the sun as well.

Straight and Edgy:

Do you have color-treated hair? If so, use Color Save shampoo and conditioner to preserve the tone.  This shampoo will also create shine.

Next, add Cream Whip to damp hair.  It’s important to comb it through evenly.  Then, blow dry straight.

Last step is to spray ReFINISH dry shampoo in short bursts to the crown.  It will give you that mussy, lived-in texture.



Texture and Separation:  

Start with ARROJO Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner.  Has the sun and surf left your hair dull and damaged? These mainstay products will repair and nourish long, dry stands.

Next, try Texture Paste.  Just a dime size amount will add shape  and create texture and separation.

Finally, use ReFinish, which will remove excel oils. We love it because it will add volume without adding weight.
