Most would agree that James Dean never went out of style. The aloof, manly rebel made a name for himself with his well-groomed, high piled look. His untimely death only magnified the mysterious appeal of this mysterious legend. Maybe this can explain why the latest trends, leaning towards 50’s style, are now seeing the re-emergence of the pompadour.
Contrary to popular belief, the Pompadour is not difficult to achieve. A quality haircut from your stylist at Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon, plus the use of some quality products can help you achieve this style. The basic form of this cut incorporates a shape that is longer on the top front than in the back.
Styling is much easier than many would believe. After shampooing and conditioning with quality products (check with your stylist ag Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon for suggestions), skip the blow-dryer and towel dry your hair. Apply a liberal amount of stiff styling gel beginning at the root and smoothing it to the ends. Use a comb to spread the gel and pull the hair up at the root and then back. Let your hair dry naturally.
Looking at the top trends in men’s styles, it’s clear that the traditional pompadour is one of today’s hottest looks. However, some are opting for an update to this greaser hairstyle. One of the most stylish ways to update this look is to shave the sides. This simple change from the traditional style adds an edge that brings the cut into the 21st century.
Whether opting for the original, or modernizing the look, the pompadour is a style for those who want to make an impression. It has the ability to resurrect the first “rebel without a cause” or reflect a bold, modern edge. If you’re interested in exploring this style, or another new look, the professionals at Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon are here to guide you through the process and help you do it right. Let us help you transform your look and make a bold impression.

At Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon, we believe that the small details make a big difference. Because we share this belief Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon is proud of our partnership with Aveda. Attention to detail including consciousness of environmental concerns and humanitarian efforts makes Aveda the perfect partner for Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon. An example of Aveda’s considerations can be seen in the materials used to package Aveda’s luxurious holiday gift collection. Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon would like to share the story of Aveda’s quest for the perfect material to wrap up Aveda’s holiday gift collection:
At the top of the world in the Himalayas of Nepal things are changing for the better for many families and the forest as well. It started a decade ago when Aveda began looking for partners to make beautiful handcrafted paper for our holiday gifts we wanted paper that was sustainably sourced and we learned that the people of Nepal have been making lope bark paper since the 12th century. It was used for royal decrees because it’s traditionally believed to last 1000 years.
Today we use it to cover all of our gift boxes in green paper all year long. Purchasing over 339,000 sheets of this durable paper; employing 3,800 people, 80% of whom are women, to craft it by hand. First they collect bark from lopde shrubs beating than cooking it into a special pulp mixture. This is pressed into screens were dried in the sun. Finally women die in paper green with non-toxic pigments.
More income for families means hope for a better future. Guma Pun is an example of the power of papermaking. The 23-year-old whose parents never went to school is now head of a papermaking enterprise. She is supporting her sisters and brothers so that they can get an education and supporting her sister so she can fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher.
It helps the whole village when women work because they give back to their families and the community buying medicine and sending children to school. With the income from papermaking 1000 families can buy the food their children need they can fix leaky roofs and by clothing. Protecting 34,000 acres of forest to provide bark for the paper also fights climate change is caused by deforestation. This is a gift for all of us but after four years of buying paper from the people of Nepal we believe the greatest gift is this.
Aveda the science of pure flower and plant essences.
If you are searching for that perfect gift that will not only delight your loved ones this holiday season but also create lasting change for the families of Nepal, stop by Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon to take a look at our luxurious gift collection.

Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland – Women in today's workforce are continually facing challenges to stay on-top of their game. The long hours required to excell in many carreers combined with the demands of home life mean that many professional women often skip their regular visit to their salon in Kirkland or cutting back on services for lack of time. But it appears that these actions, while on their surface should help women advance in their carreers, can often hinder them. At least that is what top beauty industry colorists say. Take a look at the following article from one of the top hair colorists in the nation:
Is it time to update your color or cover that grey? is here to help! Color expert Sherry Ratay provides some tips.
Hair color could mean the difference of several rungs up the corporate ladder, says hair color expert Sherry Ratay.
Ratay, an expert who educates other colorists on how to achieve the right hair color, says career women today need to pay as much attention to color as they do to how they dress and groom themselves.
“No matter what stage in a woman’s career, hair color can work with or against her,” Sherry goes on to explain, “Unfortunately, there is still a gender imbalance in the work place, with women still under-represented in high-powered positions. For that and many other reasons, it is important to be aware of how they portray themselves in the corporate world.”
Here are some of Sherry’s coloring tips for women in the workplace:
For women graduating college, leave behind the bleached-blonde locks and stripy highlights and opt for a more subtle shade. Think blonde on blonde shade, like Jennifer Aniston.
Take in consideration your budget, availability and lifestyle. For those with limited time and budget, Sherry suggests a low-maintenance technique called “butterflies,” where she creates color through mid-lengths and ends, like Eva Longoria.
Cover those grays. Gray hair ages women 10 to 15 years. Need I say more? Understand and analyze your skin tone, eye color and existing hair color. Your hair color palette should follow along. Maintain healthy and shiny hair. And above all, have a professional appearance from head to toe.

Continued from: “Let Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon Create the Perfect Haircut for Your Face Shape Part 2″
In Part 1 and Part 2 of this article series, we focused on how to identify your face shape and some techniques that Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon hair stylists use to create the illusion of the perfect, oval face shape if you aren’t blessed with that face shape and instead have a round, square, or oblong face.
In this article, we’ll take a look at what Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon hair stylists can do for those of you who have heart, triangle, and diamond face shapes.
Because heart-shaped faces have a broad forehead and narrow chin, your Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon hair stylist can create the illusion of an oval shape by narrowing the forehead and adding volume around the jaw and chin. Shoulder- or longer length hair styles that are textured, layered, or flare out work well. If you like bangs, keep them swept to the side. Be sure your hair is shoulder length or longer if you want hair on the top of the head.
The triangle face shape is narrow at the forehead and broad at the chin; therefore, your Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon hair stylist will create an oval shape by adding width at the forehead and around the temples. A layered look is the best way to go, especially when the hair flares around the forehead and temples and tapers toward the jaw line. As a result, shorter hair cuts are beste suited for this face shape.
Creating the illusion of an oval with a diamond face shape is going to involve widening the narrow forehead, narrowing the wide cheeks, and adding width to the narrow jaw line. Your Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon hair stylist can easily achieve this by adding straight bangs across the forehead to broaden it, keeping the hair chin length to create a “bob” style or shoulder length, with the hair flaring out at the sides to broaden the jaw line.
As you can see, it really doesn’t matter what kind of face shape you have. Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon hair stylists know exactly what to do to create the perfect style and haircut for your uniquely beautiful face. Give us a call today at (425) 822-6040to schedule an appointment.
