We’re all about that sparkly life, and what better excuse to add a little bling to your aesthetic than on your nails? The matching hair trend will make you feel fabulous and unique!

Color Gradients

Gone are the days of nails being one color. Gone are the days where the accent nail is only the ring finger. We suggest exploring Instagram for all the cool silhouettes people placed over these beautiful gradients.

Cuticle Art

Reverse French tips? You can bling out this nail style with jewelry, jewels, or glitter! this groovy nail trend’s hair counterpart is equally creative. What’s the opposite of dyed tips? Dyed roots!

Geometric Art

Abstract paintings, step aside! This nail trend requires a very steady hand, the proper tools, and probably a little training. The hair trend likely requires even more skill as it’s all about sharp lines and edgy angles.

Miniature Paintings

Who needs to visit a museum when you can carry your own on your fingertips? You’ll need to find a very skilled nail artist in order to accomplish this level of artistry, so why not visit our student salon*? The hair counterpart? Mix and match colors, oils, and cuts!
