2018 Spring Trends



The Long Pixie: 

Who wouldn’t want it? You can tousle it and layer it. And by using different ARROJO styling products, the Long Pixie can be worn several different ways. This cut works with all hair types but is especially great for thin hair. Get inspired with this awesome Spring Trend.

Deep Side Part: 

Drama and beauty. This is a killer look that adds flair to your hair. We love a deep side part because it takes an average look and makes it unique. Just find your natural part and go a little deeper than you normally would. The Deep Side Part will create volume naturally, so give it a try.


Shaggy Blunt Bangs: 

What will we see everywhere in the spring? Bangs. Everyone is getting them. At least that’s what we’re hearing! Maybe you’ve tried bangs, only to give up, frustrated and annoyed? This spring try a new variation. Long, tapered bangs are in, but so are soft and side-swept. The easiest to wear are piecey and textured. It’s spring and it’s time for a new you!

Prom Night Hair Styles


It’s almost that time: Prom. From the halls of every Charlotte-area high school, we’ll hear the stories of the Prom “Ask!” Who will be the most creative, and do it best? Who will say yes, and will anyone say no? Stay tuned!

But soon after the “ask” and the “yes,” we begin to plan… and one of the most important parts of getting that perfect prom look, is of course, how you’ll wear your hair.

At FRESH SALON, we’re seeing big, soft waves and plenty of movement in subtle ways. We love braids, cascading down your back. And check out Hollywood glam: again soft curls and plenty of drama. We think waves worn down look amazing, especially with a bohemian dress. Check out these styles where curls are pinned up, again, creating drama and beauty.

Want to schedule an appointment with your FRESH stylist for your special night? Give us a call at 704-841-2100 several weeks ahead so we can ensure you get the look you want!

The Shag


It’s back! The Shag: the haircut you have to try at least once in your life! By all accounts, the Shag is young, modern and hip. It’s easy to maintain and with little effort you can style to perfection, which is why we love it here at Fresh!

These are our favorites for long and short hair!


Long Shag:

Determined to keep your long locks and still have an edge? The trendy long shag is stylish and fun. By removing a little bulk and volume, you can obtain a great look that is sure to turn heads. We think feathering the top and sides and going for a messy, tousled look is super cool!



Short Shag:

2017 is the year of the shag. And you don’t need long hair to be a part of the trend.   Short shags require texture, and more and more clients want to give this trend a try as summer approaches. One key is making sure your hair is shiny and clean. Try ARROJO’s Shine Luxe Oil that fights frizz and adds control and luster. This product will make your shag sparkle!

Creating Beach Hair


Do you want beach wavy hair, but are unable to hit the surf and sand? It’s a look we all love, especially with summer in front of us. Here’s an easy step- by- step approach, using a few ARROJO products.

  • First, start with damp hair, either by washing or simply misting lightly
    • If you wash your hair, be sure to also dry, leaving it damp only
  • Next, put ARROJO’s Curl Enhancer throughout your hair, making sure to spread it from the roots to the tips.
  • Part you hair and braid it on each side
  • Let it sit at the minimum for four hours, but overnight is even better
  • When you’re ready for the reveal, loosen your braids carefully and toss your head
  • If your hair is still damp, blow it dry lightly to remove any moisture
  • Finally, use ARROJO Wave Mist or ARROJO holding spray to give your beach hair a great hold
  • This should last at least a few hours, but if you’re hair holds curls well, it could last up to two days

Pixie Perfect

Twiggy started it. Mia Farrow embodies it. Demi Moore kept it alive.   And today, plenty of celebrities continue to love it.   The timeless Pixie Cut. Let’s face it, to pull off the Pixie, you have to have confidence, poise and grace, which are all beautiful qualities.

Tempted to give it a try? We recommend you start with a picture you love. Bring it to your FRESH stylist so he or she can understand your vision. If you’re willing to take the leap, remember there are all kinds of Pixie variations.

Do you want to enhance your beautiful bone structure? The Classic Pixie will do just that. And if you’re going for this, why not try a striking hair color too. Blonde, silver or red? Go for it.

Pixie Bob:

Worried about whether you’ll love the Pixie forever? No problem. The Pixie Bob allows you to transition from this iconic cut to a longer style.   You’ll have lots of movement in your hair when you allow the front to remain a bit longer and keep the back stacked.

Beauty Rest

Want to get some extra sleep and still wake up to beautiful, sexy and shiny hair? It’s simple with these easy tips.


Keep it Silky:   Your mom told you a silk pillow case is the way to go, but did you know why? Simple. Silk won’t absorb the moisture in your hair, so you won’t have as much frizz. And when it comes to your skin, silk will lead to fewer breakouts than a cotton pillowcase. So ditch the cotton and try silk.


Dry Shampoo: There’s no need to wash every day to get that clean hair feeling. ARROJO’s Dry Shampoo will do the trick in just seconds. Apply it to your roots to absorb oils before you hit the door for the day. Want to wake up looking ready to go? Then spray dry shampoo throughout your hair before you go to bed.

Fight Frizz: Want to wake up without frizz? Simple enough. Put a little leave-in conditioner through your hair, and comb it, before you go to sleep. Stylists recommend concentrating on the ends. Next, put your hair in a bun, and when you wake up, you should be frizz-less, with extra shine and as well.
