Trending Hairstyles for 2017: Hair Interview with Michael Sparks and Heather Cie
All Things Hair: What do you think will be some hair trends that we will be seeing in 2017?
Michael Sparks: In 2016, the light fade on men was popular and I think now guys will start to rock shaved heads.
Heather Cie: I think the ombré and platinum hair trend will slowly fade out, and a more natural approach to color will take over.
All Things Hair: What are some color trends that you loved in 2016?
Heather Cie: I saw a more natural approach to hair coloring. My clients were wanting a more sun-kissed look that would allow a better grow out and a better investment in their hair all around. I also had many clients embracing their natural red hair (which I loved).
All Things Hair: What is the best color treatment option for women to get, if they are new to color?
Heather Cie: Less is best. If a client is not graying, they could come in for a gloss to enrich their natural color. If they want highlights, then a sun kissed look is the best. Anything natural for virgin hair is the best bet.
All Things Hair: Tell us about your salon? What do you offer?
Michael Sparks: We are a high end salon located in the Malibu Country Mart that offers luxury haircutting/styling and hair color services to the community and the Los Angeles area. Cie Sparks Salon offers all the sophistication and allure of a high-end salon, with a full menu of services including haircuts, blowouts, extensions, color and highlights, as well as specialized conditioning, Keratin, and Brazilian treatments.
