10. Give It a Whirl
Leave it to @alan_beak to showcase the beauty of natural hair color on a fresh cut and blow dry. He says he likes to respect the origin point of hair and embrace it instead of fighting it. Based on this finished result, it seems like excellent advice!
@alan_beak for the win! 👑 👑 "He who removes his crown is not worthy to be king." #modernsalon ・・・ "Hell no to the CROWN SNATCHER" ... snatching ones crown should be a crime, our hairs point of origin should be given respect and treated as good, if not better than the rest of ones hair ... My man Rocky has the devilest of crowns, so we grown it out, and blown dry it into something beautiful and majestic ✌🏻
9. Palette Power
Know your complementary colors! @kanejenna works baby-blue eyes to her advantage with bronze and orangey tones. Combined with her silver-beige hair and deep mahogany lips, this makeup artist knows her color wheel.
8. Cooling Off
@danielmbeauty simply captioned his before-and-after “S L A Y E D” with a fire emoticon, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. A cool-blonde transformation completely changed and refreshed his client’s short cut.
7. Which Witch
Is there a happier time of year for hair and makeup enthusiasts than Halloween? This grandmother/ granddaughter duo posted by @pinsandthingsinsta shows off some very impressive homemade Winifred Sanderson outfits complete with her iconic hair and makeup. Costume. Goals.
6. Melt for Me
Who says you have to lighten hair for an on-trend colormelt? This one with @hairtalkUSA extensions in 8/25 made for a damage-free color service with a beautiful result.
5. Blonde Ambition
Teamwork made this dream a reality for a client who wanted a fresh style for her wedding. @jeremyhartfield first cropped the hair into a chic bob, then @saramay_level10 put her color prowess to work. The result is a transformation worth more than 21,000 likes.
Is it the silvery-beige rooted color? The perfectly tousled bob and winged liner? @yokii.san hits all the marks with an eye-catching color and style using Schwarzkopf Professional, Brazilian Bond Builder, Hot Tools Professional and L’Oréal Professionnel.
3. Little Girl, Big Hair
We’re in absolute awe of the volume and style @sagidahary created on tiny model @anastaya_averbukh_official. With more than 27,000 likes, you seem to share our hair awe and envy!
Trying to figure out why this child has better hair than us, but then we guess she hasn’t lightened, straightened, curled and colored it within an inch of its life for the past decade or two... oh and @sagidahary styled it, so that definitely helps 😘 @anastasya_averbukh @avishaghadad_makeup #modernsalon
2. Linear Layering
Back in January 2017, @kaori_nails combined still-trending pastels with a nod to the outgoing Pantone colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. With the added geometric design, this mani wows.
1. Party My French
A French manicure is timeless— but a perfect one impeccably photographed with added flair? Now that’s worth top honors as our most-liked image of 2017! Congrats to @annet_leto for this beautiful work!
