hair
Healthy, bouncy hair is in!

The main hair trends you will be seeing this spring are healthy, shiny blunt cut strands adorned with all types of accessories! Other popular looks include ultra high ponytails, oversized snap clips, short and mid lengths cuts, middle parts, chignon buns, knot braids and natural afros.

hair color
Yup, the hues that defined 2018—think rose-gold highlights, fiery reds, and icy platinum shades—will soon be replaced by a whole new lineup. And, spoiler, the hair colors of 2019 are really good—so good, you’ll have a hard time settling on just one. Here are seven shades you’re going to see everywhere in the new year: chestnut brown (with face framing gold) inky black (rich + glossy), ash gray (moody deep roots), pastel (cotton candy, blue, teal) shades, baby (pale) blonde, chocolate brown(with copper tones weaved thru out), strawberry honey (golden blonde + vibrant copper).

nails
Nails continue to be cool, trendy, and super fun! Trends include stiletto shapes, red and gold manicures, stark bright white, neon prune pink, glossy navy, dove gray, sheer blush, poppy red, metallic finishes, and neutral taupe.

makeup
Electric colors of all shades were popular, but turquoise, orange, cobalt blue and pink were favorites. Sunset faded pinks, yellows and oranges played into the season’s weather and gave a flattering Instagram filter effect. Classic red or pink lips popped up a handful of times as did brightly colored mascara. If all the talk of bold tones is making you dizzy, there were some softer looks too—a natural makeup look featuring dewy skin finished with a glossy lip is for you!

fashion
Velvet blazers, high slits, pant suits, flowy pants, mules, flats, and pointy toe shoes.

men
This season, men’s hairstyles tend toward shorter hair lengths, which limits what can be done with them. Shorter is neater, mid length is trendy, and longer shoulder length (or the still very popular man bun) are for those under 30! And look out... the mullet is making a return! Whether you wear a short hairstyle, or a long hairstyle, you need to have your hair groomed on a regular basis to keep it looking neat.


New MCS Service!

Lash and Brow Tinting
There are lots of ways to change the look of your eyebrows—tweezing, waxing, shaping, etc.—and ways to enhance your lashes—mascara, lash curlers, primer, etc. But what the heck is brow and lash tinting? Simply put, brow and eyelash tinting uses semi-permanent vegetable dye to add color, shape and thickness to dull eyebrows and lashes in need of some new life. How does it work? Eyebrow tinting helps people with “barely there” brows to achieve a bolder look that can redefine their whole face. Eyebrow tinting typically lasts between 6 to 8 weeks. Eyelash tinting gives added definition and makes mascara unnecessary until the tinted eyelashes fall out and new ones grow in. Usually, that takes about 4 to 6 weeks. Ask your MCS esthetician if these new services are right for you!
