Color of the Year: Rose Quartz & Serenity

Color of the Year: Rose Quartz & Serenity

Every year designers, retailers and creatives all over the world look forward to the unveiling of the new Pantone Color of the Year. When in comes to color in 2016, we can expect to look forward to a kaleidoscope of pastel hues featuring the two new stars of the color show: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Never before has a duo of colors been released as the “color of the year.” Some are noting that the two colors are a nod to gender equality. In Pantone’s press release it stated, “Globally, we are experiencing gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity.” As Pantone’s Executive Director states below, the two colors are about connection, order and peace. Color is the perfect mirror for the face of our society; and by the looks of this reflection, 2016 will be a harmonious, lighthearted, comforting year.  Let’s take a look at the past 10 years of Pantone Color of the Year releases. Here’s my personal ode to the new Pantone Colors of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. I can’t wait to see what creative new products and styles will come out of these dignified yet delicate colors. Cheers to a colorful 2016! Renee Taglia is located in a Beverly Hills California. Contact her here for a consultation on how to discover (and keep) your perfect color.

How to Detox Your Hair: The Importance of A Clean Scalp

How to Detox Your Hair: The Importance of A Clean Scalp

“Detox” is a buzzword among many celebrities, nutritionists and stylists. You may already know about detoxing your body, but did you know that it’s equally important to detox your hair too? Hair detoxing can be one of the most overlooked processes of your beauty regime. Removing toxins from your hair/body helps build your immune system and can prove to be very therapeutic! As a Master Hair Colorist I recommend detoxing your hair every 3 months for a healthy scalp and hair. It is important to detox in order remove buildup from over the counter products that damage your hair, and of course, to keep your color beautiful. There are many harmful toxins in conventional hair products that have even been linked to health problems, so naturally, cleansing your hair is in your best (and most beautiful) interest. Here are my Master Colorist tips on how to detox your hair: Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, and just like the pores on your face, the pores of your scalp can become clogged with dirt, oil and product buildup. In the business of hair coloring, I have experimented with many products, but my favorite by far is the Wella Luxe Oil Shampoo. Take a generous amount of shampoo and start at the nape of your neck (hair in that area tends to be the most oily) and work your way up. More tips: 1) Try a moisturizing treatment at least once a week. 2) Lay off the heat – curling irons, straighteners and blow dryers damage and weaken your hair. 3) Go deep with a keratin treatment.
