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.

Visit Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland for Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance™
Aveda and Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland have introduced ShaveCream and Dual Action After Shave, because men are “different by nature.”
According to Kurt Kueffner, Director of Men’s Business Development for Aveda, “Men’s skin is clinically proven to be different by nature than women’s skin. Men have a weaker skin barrier function, a 25% higher collagen density, a higher rate of moisture evaporation and higher sebum production than women.” Aveda addresses these concerns and has developed formulas specifically geared to meet men’s distinct needs and producing real results.
These products make shaving friendlier – both to a man’s face AND to the environment. Aveda’s Pure-Formance™ ShaveCream and Dual Action After Shave are more than 97% naturally derived and packed with plant-powered ingredients. The phyto-active blend includes phycosaccharide from seaweed extract, licorice root, sage extract, plai oil and tamanu oil.
In addition, the Aveda Men Pure-Formance™ Shave Cream and Dual Action Aftershave include argan oil, a conditioner that is sourced from a women’s cooperative in South Morocco. So, your purchase helps to preserve the endangered Argan Forest
Learn more about Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance™ at Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland, or give us a call at (425) 822-6040.

10 grooming tips to help you stay at the top of your game – Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA
by Renee Marchione
A smooth face doesn’t start and end with shaving cream. Use pre- and post-shave products. You’ll notice fewer ingrown hairs, less razor-burn irritation, and longer-lasting shaves. (visit Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA’s Aveda store to find some fantastic choices in products!)
Dandruff isn’t a good look on anyone—especially men. Product buildup, a dry scalp, and even stress are just a few reasons why flaking occurs. Thoroughly rinse out your hair with specialized shampoos from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA, and you can keep this problem under wraps.
Since you’re already applying a moisturizer from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA (right?) to your face, why not use one with SPF? Your everyday commute and dog walks can still cause sunburns, premature aging—and increase the risk of cancer.
In their 20s and 30s, no one wants to look like Steven Tyler, so start taking care of your skin now. Sport sunglasses to prevent sun damage (and excessive squinting), drink lots of water to keep hydrated, and use eye creams to prevent premature wrinkling.
- Stop lugging around a shampoo, face wash, and body wash in your gym bag. Simply throw an all-in-one product from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA in your bag or keep one in your locker, and you’re golden. An added bonus, everyone from Old Spice to Jack Black makes them.
- Gym rats and weekend warriors have all dealt with athlete’s foot at some point in their lives. Pack a pair of flip-flops in your bag to wear in the showers and around the locker room. Keep your feet clean and dry especially in between your toes. If you’ve already been infected, no worries—there are medicated powders and creams you can use to help heal.
- If you can smell your own cologne, you have too much on. Use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol and water to gently pat over any areas where you may have OD’d on your scent.
- Those nose hairs that creep out every now and then may not bother you so much, but they will bother your girl. With so many tools available right at the drugstore (Remington Personal Trimmer, $10), there’s no longer any excuse for an extra-long hair growing from your ears and nose.
- Growing a beard? Don’t use bar soap to clean it. Unless you’re going for hobo chic, leftover soap scum will cause your facial hair to look dirty. Use a hair conditioner from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA instead. The conditioner’s cleaning ingredients will wash away bacteria and instantly soften your beard. And always pat dry with a towel.
- A little hair product goes a long way. Want a shiny, wet look? Try using a gel product from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA. If you want to sport a more messy, bed-head look, use a pomade to work through your locks.

Hair Salons Kirkland: Prep, Style, Finish! Product plus technique gets results: Aveda Men.
The as one of the top hair salons Kirkland, Bella Sirena Salon knows that men’s scalps can produce twice as much oil as women’s and dirt and dead cells can build up in the leftover sebum, so let’s use Aveda Men Pure-Formance shampoo and conditioner together to sooth the scalp and get clean, conditioned, healthy looking hair. They’re great for daily use. As one of the top Aveda approved hair salons Kirkland, Bella Sirena carries the full line of Aveda products.
Moisture content matters: if hair is too dry, it’s hard to apply styling products evenly, but if hair is too wet, it dilutes the products and compromises performance. It’s also important to choose the right styling product for you hair’s length, texture, pigment and your styling objective. Ask your Aveda stylist at Bella Sirena hair salons Kirkland for advice. To shape hair and add shine, use Aveda Men Pure-Formance Pomade, which gives firm, pliable hold and high-shine to the hair, for more formal finish that you can shape and reshape.
With concentrated Aveda products, a little goes a long way. These products are carried at your top-notch Aveda hair salons Kirkland such as Bella Sirena Salon. Vigorously emulsify the pomade between your hands. Then massage it into the hair from roots to ends, starting in the back where the hair is thickest. If you have longer hair, you can brush the pomade through the hair to ensure even application. Just do not over-brush, or you’ll flatten the hair. Shape the hair with your hands until you get the look you want. If you want more shine, you can comb through the hair. You’ll end up with the high shine and hold of traditional pomade, without the paraffin or petroleum base. Because the pomade is water-based, it’s must gentler on the scalp and it also washes out more easily.
Hair Salons Kirkland Tips: Finishing
To finish, use Aveda Men Pure-Formance aroma spray, with certified organic essential oils of spearmint, vetiver, and lavender. You can mist it on, or spray a little onto the chest or forearms; wherever you prefer.

The Soft Power of Obama’s State of the Union Tie
January 26, 2011 at 11:13AM
by The Fashion Editors
Maybe it’s a good thing, or quite possibly a bad thing, that the most controversial thing about Tuesday night’s State of the Union address was the color of the president’s tie. It was purple (or if you want to get technical about it, lavender), and as much as we admire his symbolic commitment to bipartisanship — no red or blue for this guy — there’s some substance to his style.
A bit of history: As far back as Roman empire, the rich and powerful would show they were rich and powerful by wearing clothes dyed in Tyrian purple, a shade derived from the expensive and rare boiled shells of the murex sea snail. After the whole decline and fall debacle, the color Continue reading “The Purple Power Tie?” »
