Bangs are back and more versatile than ever! And that means there is a style that suits everyone, no matter your hair’s  length or texture. But, we know it can get confusing quickly when looking at all the different styles to choose from. We’re here to make it easier – simply check out these inspiration photos to show to your stylist at your next haircut appointment. Blunt This is the traditional and classic hairstyle that birthed the bang trend! Blunt bangs are an exciting way to spruce up a classic hairstyle, such as a short bob. You can even cut these bangs with some face framing layers if you have longer hair to give a doll appearance.  Wispy Wispy bangs are pretty much the straight-up opposite of traditional blunt bangs – and because they are less of an in-your-face statement, they are a great option if you’ve never had bangs before and are just looking to try them out. They’re on the longer and thinner side, so if you decide you don’t want to style the bangs one day, you can push them to the side and they will blend effortlessly with the rest of your hair because not as much of your hair is cut to form the bangs.  Curtain The show must go on, and the Curtain Bangs hairstyle, which made its debut in late 2021 is far from being washed up! This relaxed hairstyle is parted in the middle and then drapes your face as a way to naturally compliment it. The hair is shortest on the inner part towards your forehead, and waterfalls longer to blend into your natural hair length.  Baby Baby bangs originated in the alternative scene, but have made their way into mainstream culture because they are  flattering and easy to style. Not to mention, baby bangs are practical, because, hence the name, their short length prevents any blocking of  your eyesight like longer bangs may do. If you like edgier hairstyles and want to accentuate your eyes, baby bangs should definitely be on your agenda! Side Another classic bang style, that has been around for ages, is a side-swept bang. These bangs are longer pieces–created where you part your hair deep on the side that areparted to go across your forehead to the other side. The good news is that this haircut suits almost all hair lengths and textures, so you don’t have to worry about the logistics of it all (leave that to your hairstylist!).  Curly Curly hair is beautiful; why not accentuate it with having some curls in the front to frame your face? Chopping some wavy or curly bangs can often give the appearance of a shag, which is perfect because that ’80s laid-back look is all the rage!  Hopefully these inspirational images, along with a description of what each style of bangs looks like, will help you make an easier bangs choice the next time you’re in the salon. Our professional hairstylists at Fabio Scalia Salon will always take your face shape and personal style into consideration when cutting your bangs, so even though you have a point of reference from these images, it’s always a great idea to be open to having your own version of bangs to suit you the best.

The secret is out: Having a professional hair color service doesn’t always mean spending all of your free time in the salon. Here, we’re going to discuss five different hair color ideas that look high maintenance, but are actually easy to maintain. Changing your hair is the best way to keep your look interesting and fresh; but while all hair changes require a little bit of upkeep, some colors and techniques require more frequent salon visits than others. As much as we love seeing our clients often, we know that your hair is not the only thing on your busy agenda, so we’ve compiled the most low-maintenance hair colors so that you can change your look without filling up your schedule with hair appointments.  Balayage Balayage, a hand-painted technique, is all about natural grow-out and it allows a seamless blend of the highlights to your natural hair. The highlights start really thin towards the roots, so that most of your root color remains natural, and gets thicker and heavier towards the ends so that you will still have the transformation you want. This allows you to have a bold or subtle change with more forgiving growth. And Fabio Scalia salons have a wealth of colorists known for the best balayage in NYC, such as Lucio Galano in our Soho salon. Call us to schedule a consultation!   Face-Framing Highlights Adding face-framing highlights stays away from the top of the head and adds dimension and brightness to the face. This is an easy way to add something fresh to your locks that only involves a small section of hair. Since the highlights will only be added around the front perimeter, the bold change literally “frames” your face. Low-maintenance bonus: This does not need to be retouched more than a couple of times a year. Pastel Ombre Looking for a fantasy color, but don’t want to have to come to the salon to get your roots done every couple of weeks? Pastel Ombre is a great application method to add a fun color to your hair without having to dye your whole head. This technique includes a balayage to hand-paint the bottom to a light blonde followed by the application of a direct dye in the color of your choice. As the fantasy color washes out, it will reveal the blonde balayage underneath, so you’d only have to come to the salon to touch up the pastel bits whenever you’re feeling the vibe!     Rich Brunette Don’t let the name fool you; you don’t have to spend all your money on maintenance for this one! Going darker always means easier upkeep. To bring more fullness to your locks, look no further than a glossy, warm brown. Caramel Highlights If you already have brunette hair but want to add some dimension and brightness, caramel highlights are the best option. When adding highlights to brown hair, the general rule is to stay within 2-3 shades of the base color so the caramels will blend seamlessly with your natural color. Hair tends to be naturally warm, so keeping the added highlights towards the warm, caramel side will help lessen harsh lines during your hair growth cycle. At our hair salon in Brooklyn, Rocco Crisci is your go-to for stunning caramel highlights!   To book your next appointment click here
