Hairstyles for your Wedding Day If you're about to get married, you'll almost certainly hire a professional hairstylist. Your hairstyle for your wedding has a broader influence in creating the look that you want more than you would believe. Finding perfect bridal hair is not as easy as you might think. The appearance of your face can be changed drastically by your hairstyle. So, which wedding-day hairstyle should you go with? Continue reading to find out. Match It to Your Wedding Gown and Overall Aesthetic Even if every hairstyle fits with the neckline and design of your wedding gown, there are several considerations to keep in mind before deciding on a hairstyle. The elegance of your gown, the venue you choose, and your overall wedding idea are all strong starting ideas for determining your bridal hairstyle. The style of your hair should compliment your dress. Brides who want a more laid-back and natural style can keep their hair loose. If you wear a sleeveless gown or one with a low cut back, will you be comfortable with too much of your skin showing in an updo?  Or will you want it half up and half down?  If you have a high neck dress, will you want to cover the dress with your hair down or have an up-do? When it comes to your wedding day, you want to feel at ease with how you will be styling your hair. Just as deciding the style of your gown, think about how you will feel in it and picture your hair with your personal style.   Do Some Research and Ask Around Before you jump to the hairdresser, do some research on what you might like. Bridal hairstyles are featured on Instagram, Pinterest boards, websites, and a variety of other wedding exhibitions. Take advantage of these to get a desired look that you want to try. Find inspiration from celebrities with hair you dream of or search for their hairstylists to see their entire collections. You may also follow notable salons and stylists on social networking sites like Fabio Scalia Salon and bookmark your favorite photos. Talking to other people may also help you in deciding on the best bridal hairstyle. If you've been to a few weddings, you've probably noticed a bride or two with really stunning hair. Call or text them to inquire about how they chose their ideal wedding hairstyle. They might be able to offer suggestions on what to test and what to avoid. Schedule a Trial Appointment If you don't want to be disappointed with the appearance you choose, booking a trial visit or two is essential. Let's say you've had your heart set on a big updo, but the results aren't quite right. Your trial appointment is the moment to find out and not on your big day. Experiment with different hairstyles, such as updos or flowing styles, you can accentuate it with a veil or a jeweled comb. Think about wearing a top with a matching neckline to your gown so you can visualize your entire look. We recommend coming in for a bridal consultation a couple months prior to your big day.    

What Summer Hairstyle should I wear with Long Hair?  Choosing a suitable and comfortable hairstyle for the summer can be a piece of work, especially with the summer heat. However, summer is also a season to play with, and try out a couple of flirty hairstyles for the season. The summer heat can sometimes make it difficult to style long hair. As a result, people want hairstyles that flatter their looks for the sunshine season while keeping the heat-associated discomfort resulting from long hair away from their necks and faces.  The summer should not be a hindrance to rocking your long hair. Therefore this article will discuss a couple of trendy long hairstyles that are easy to wear. Read on to learn more about them? 5 Easy Long Hairstyles for the summer   1. Use Buns to hold long hair Buns always seem to be the perfect go-to for most women during summer. Especially if you lead a pretty busy life; perhaps you are a student or a working-class mother, buns are a great way to style your long hair and still look your best. You could style your hair in a messy bun, a high bun, or a braided bun. It is the perfect style for a summer evening to pair with your favorite red lipstick and earrings for a more flattering look. 2. Have your long hair in Ponytails Ponytails are excellent for getting any strands of hair away from your face. Especially if you are trying to keep your cool during those sweaty moments, it is the perfect long hairstyle for athletes and people engaged in activities requiring an intense range of motion. But if you are going for a slightly serious look without risking your style, ponytails can do the trick. 3. Make long hair into Pigtails If you are a mum and wondering about the perfect long hairstyle for your daughters, you might want to opt for the pigtails. They are easy to do at home, and if you are aiming for a more elaborate styling, you can add some hair fancies for children. Pigtails are also nice on adults for that childlike innocence on a regular day. 4. Milkmaid braids for long hair  Milkmaid braids combine a certain homely yet easy going feel to make the wearer maintain some romantic innocence. They are your perfect go-to for that je ne sais quoi during an evening stroll or a casual hangout. And they are quite long-lasting, so you don’t have to style your hair every single day. 5. Style in Beach waves If you are not overly bothered about letting down your hair, then a beach wave is perfect as a long hairstyle, especially during the late evenings or sunset. Beach waves provide a certain degree of fullness to your facial frame and add a little bit of volume to your hair.   There are a ton more long hairstyles fitting for the summer, feel free to explore with your hair or a friends. You can always get creative with your hair or consult your favorite hairstylist if you seem unsure of what to do.  

Brooklyn Bridge- The Shrouded Series Mixed Media: photography, goache, watercolor, ink One of our favorite parts of collaborating with local artists and showcasing their work in our salon, is that we get to be surrounded by art that was created through all different mediums, depending on how the artist makes and sees art. S.M Dyer is a NYC artist who paints, draws and takes photographs. “The Shrouded Series” is a collection of images that were printed by the artist onto watercolor paper and then painted. This collection of work was inspired by daily walks that Dyer took over the Brooklyn Bridge, throughout the renovation period that began in 2012. According to the artist: “As I took daily walks over the bridge , I was taken by it’s beauty; the wind created motion in the tarps and the sun revealed so many layers. I photographed through these layers and what the camera saw was a cacophony of shadow and light, graffiti and paint, architecture and structure. I was there to catch the sun as it cast shadows, and at night, as the lights of the city illuminated the shroud. I would return to the same spot waiting for the sun to create what would become this project”. After Dyer captured these uniquely beautiful images, she added some of herself to them. She added a layer of paint using gouache and water colors and in some cases, even added graffiti to capture the moment in time. Our clients love this exhibit because Dyer takes something that many of us see every day and, through her creative vision she transforms it into a work of art. Exhibit Dates: December 1, 2015- March 14, 2015 For more information on the artist, visit smdyer.co

Here at Fabio Scalia Salon we are committed to our partnership with local artists. We love having the opportunity to connect artists with members of the community and we are privileged to have a revolving display of amazing art adorning our walls. Recently, and just in time for Valentine's Day, we have re-partnered with Michael Mut- local artist and founder of the Love Yourself Project. The Love Yourself Project is presenting a collection of origami hearts from their core public program, 10,000 Hearts Campaign, that began in 2010. Each mixed media hand made heart contains a personal inscription of self-love, from New Yorkers who were asked “What do you love about yourself?” In this collection at Fabio Scalia Salon,  Mut donated several of his own personal origami hearts to be for sale to help support the project. In the back part of the salon are hand painted Hearts also by Michael Mut and local artist Shelley Flanders. All Hearts are for sale and 100% of the profit will go to the Love Yourself Project to support their programs. We are very inspired by the message of self-love, and we think all of you will appreciate this lovely exhibit. Stay tuned to learn the date of an upcoming workshop where you can learn to make your own origami heart with a message that is personal to you. Also check out the Love Yourself Project's exhibit of 5,000 hearts, honoring the program's 5th anniversary, on display at BAM Fisher (321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn, NY). The exhibit is taking place between February 24th - March 8th.
