We understand that sometimes the overload of products on the counter can be a tad bit overwhelming, so we have decided to help you out and make life a little bit simpler. We have complied some of our favorite products that we believe should be essentials for this summer season. Get a few or get them all!



Bumble and Bumble/ Surf Infusion

Why we love it: Just when you thought surf spray couldn’t get any better Surf Infusion was born.  It has the same salty base to hold and lock in beachy waves, but now they’ve added lightweight oil to the mix to keep frizz to a minimum. Don’t forget to shake it up before applying!!



Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil/ Shampoo, conditioner, & Primer

 

Why we love it:  Moisture, Moisture, Moisture!!! This magical combo of oils is the perfect fix for dry tresses that can’t handle a ton of weight that is in other moisturizing shampoo/conditioners.

 

Bumble and Bumble Blow Dry/ Repair

 

Why we love it:  Who would’ve thought you could repair the damage to your hair while you blow-dry it!! This heat-protective, serum-in-crème elixir helps seal split ends for soft, smooth, healthy-looking styles. It helps protect against breakage, heat and UV damage too. Proven to help repair hair and keep styles looking healthy for up to 3 days. Need we say more?

 

Fashion Forward Cosmetics/ Tinted Primer

 

Why we love it: It gives you lightweight coverage without looking like your wearing a ton of makeup.  Its oil free, reduces the appearance of large pores, and evens out your skin tone: plus it protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays. This must have is also hypoallergenic, fragrance and parabin free.

 

 

Fashion Forward Cosmetics/ Highlighter Stick

 

Why we love it: Every girl needs a little highlighter in her life!!  Combine this easy to use highlighter with your bronzer to get that perfect summer glow.  Use it on the upper cheek, eyelids, and collarbone. We would vote this product “Most likely to be stolen by my girlfriends” because once they use it they have to have it!!

Fashion Forward Cosmetics / Teaberry Lipstick

 

Why we love it: We Remember the day when we had to mix 3 lipsticks together to get that perfect shade, and then teaberry came along.  We have yet to find someone that it didn’t’ look good on.  It’s the 2015’s new perfect mauve.

 

Little Sugar Naturals/ Oils, Lotions, & Body Buff

 

Why we love it: Why put so many chemicals on your body when the natural version feels so good!! This line has so many wonderful products that are all made locally. They are skin-changing products, that you will see results from the first time you use them. 

Faux Mink/ Eyelash Extensions

 

Why we love it: You never have to wear mascara again…need we say more!!  This age defying product will make all your friends swear you had an eye-lift.  Look refreshed and have everyone jealous of your fabulous lashes that they will think are naturally long and beautiful.  The only downside is once you’ve had lash extensions you’ll want to have them forever!!

<![CDATA[Jaci's Fall Favorites]]>Fri, 14 Nov 2014 18:59:31 GMThttp://fashionforwardsalon.com/fashion-forward-forcast/jacis-fall-favorites Picture
What’s the one fall fashion item you cannot live without?

Boots! I could never last a full day with heels, but I love them. Boots help my want for heels without the discomfort.

Which 3 Bumble and bumble products can you not live without? Why?

Thickening mousse: I can easily get a quick wave with a few scrunches of my hand a diffuser and still feel fullness or do a simple blow dry with a round brush and have volume.

Classic hairspray: I love that stuff. I do not have to worry about it weighing my hair down and I can control the strength of the hairspray by how close I put it to my hair.

Hairdresser oil: I have never found an oil I could use on my hair. It usually weighs it down or makes it look greasy. Hairdressers oil is the bomb, it adds shine, will calm down my mousse if it gets crunchy in places (I like soft looking waves) and calms down my fly aways, but on top of it all its giving my hair protection against heat and UV rays, I like my color to stay on as long as possible.

 How many pair of boots do you own?
Well considering it’s my fall item I cannot live without… I have a TON! I can think of twelve off the top of my head but I know there’s got to be more.

 What favorite Fashion Forward cosmetic product are you loving?
The eyebrow tint. I never realized what a nice structured brow can do for you face, especially in pictures. Mine are very light so the eyebrow tint does wonders for my brows and it looks so natural.

 What trend and haircut are you scared to try, but secretly love?
Pixie cut!

What’s your favorite store to shop at and why? Online, why?
Target! I can get mostly anything done in that store.

 What’s your favorite color to wear during the fall?
My safety colors are black, grey and white but a darker plum color I have so much fun wearing.

 How do you like to transition your summer hair color to fall hair color?
Tons of fun lowlights! Ill add some red violet hues every once in a while. Or to really switch it up ill go brunet all over. 
 
What is your favorite style of handbag for fall?
I’m not much of a handbag kind of girl. I’m terrible at locking my keys in the car, to help with not doing that I carry around clutch wallet size purse that my keys visibly clip to. It helps! 

Do you have a favorite accessory to wear during the fall?
Leggings, dresses are so easy for me to wear. In the winter it gets a little cold! Add some leggings and I’m good to go.

What’s your indispensable hair styling tool?
Could not live without my ½ inch curling iron.

<![CDATA[Alyssa's Fall Favorites]]>Wed, 05 Nov 2014 22:54:02 GMThttp://fashionforwardsalon.com/fashion-forward-forcast/alyssas-fall-favorites Picture
What’s the one fall fashion item you cannot live without?
Jackets and blazers. I love a tailored blazer with a blouse and jeans.

Which 3 Bumble and bumble products can you not live without? Why?
I absolutely love the hairdressers invisible oil! I love that you can use it so many ways. My favorite way to use it is to add a drop to my styling product before blow-drying. It gives my hair a little more protection from the heat, and ads shine without weighing it down.

I also love the curl conscious mousse when I wear my hair curly. It separates and defines my curls without the crunchy feel, but it also prevents frizz.
I also love the hairdressers invisible oil primer. Regardless of whether I’m wearing it straight or curly, I like to start by spraying it on towel- dried hair as the foundation. It detangles, adds shine and has the heat protection that I need.

How many pair of boots do you own?
I honestly couldn’t say without looking. Enough that I keep them in a large bin in the basement, my guess would be around 15.

What favorite Fashion Forward cosmetic product are you loving?
Definitely the eyebrow tint mascara. I use blonde lites, because my brows are sparse on the edges, it gives me the shape and color I want without looking artificial.

What trend and haircut are you scared to try, but secretly love?
The pixie!! Realistically I’d love to try darker hair but I’m a blonde at heart!

What’s your favorite store to shop at and why? Online, why?
I enjoy shopping at H&M unless I’m shopping for a special occasion; I’m usually shopping for work clothes. H&M is trendy, but professional plus inexpensive.

What’s your favorite color to wear during the fall?
Brown, I love the army green, tans, rustic orange and browns.

How do you like to transition your summer hair color to fall hair color?
I like to add darker/ richer low lights and to tone the bright blonde to a warmer blonde.

What is your favorite style of handbag for fall?
I wouldn’t say that my style of handbags change for the season. I love big purses year round.

Do you have a favorite accessory to wear during the fall?
I love to wear scarves. A colorful scarf can add so much style to a simple outfit.

What’s your indispensable hair styling tool?
My ceramic round brush for sure. The heat of the hairdryer heats it up so I can get a smooth straight style, but keep the volume.

What’s the one fall fashion item you cannot live without?
It’s a tie between scarves and warm boots.

Which 3 Bumble and bumble products can you not live without? Why?
Texture is a must for my roots after each shower. I also couldn’t live without Pret- a -powder to help with second day hair; it lets me go a day without washing. The last would have to be spray de mode it holds my curls without being stiff or crunchy.

5-6 I’m very picky about boots so I don’t find too many new ones.

Luxe crème eyeliner, I use eyeliner brush to apply this ultra creamy liner and it stays all day.

What trend and haircut are you scared to try, but secretly love?
I tried the long inverted bob cut but was too scared to go much shorter than my shoulders.

Charming Charlie- I love how you can just shop the colors you like best. I love shoptherage.com for unique fashionable items.

What’s your favorite color to wear during the fall?
Brown or maroon I usually wear a lot of black but for fall I love these warm muted colors.

How do you like to transition your summer hair color to fall hair color?

What is your favorite style of handbag for fall?
I’m looking for a new satchel this fall for a change from my summer teal crossbody.

Do you have a favorite accessory to wear during the fall?
Scarves! Plain, printed, any!
