Beauty Trends: Gorgeous Greetings From the Twin Cities
In the Minne-Apple, the weather is as unpredictable as it dramatic. The same goes for the beauty routines, because girls in Minneapolis and St. Paul like to experiment with their hair and makeup. There are also practical considerations: In the North, you must be prepared for anything from makeup to protect you from subzero temperatures to the perfect hairstyle to fight hat hair.

Hair: Minnesotans love their locks. The Land of 10,000 Lakes probably has just about as many salons as bodies of water. Jen Hughes, a master stylist at Juut Salonspa in downtown Minneapolis and an Aveda educator, notes that locals are asking for shorter, almost pixie hairstyles as seen on celebrities like Cary Mulligan, Emma Watson and Michelle Williams. For longer hair, less texture and fewer layers have made way for more defined and solid ends like Alexa Chung’s current look. A popular hairstyle spotted on the streets is an interpretation of the 1970s Gibson Girl bun with wavy or curly hair loosely wound on the top of the head. For color, baliage or hair-painting has been big for adding dimension, which is generally more subtle than crazy highlights. While the state is best known for blondes, fiery red hues are becoming increasingly hot.
Nails: While the weather can sometimes be dreary, the polishes are not. Sparkling glitterand shimmery hues have been right at manicurist Rhonda Hansford’s fingertips this season. She’s especially a fan of Bring on the Bling and Tease-y Does It from the Burlesque Collection by OPI. Gel manicures ($50) have been really heating up with great color offerings from Shellac, Gelish, GELeration, Cacee and Gelac. The service has become more popular for pedicures too, because it fully dries in minutes and you can wear your boots home. “No need to trudge through the snowbanks in flip-flops,” says Rhonda. She recommends a moisturizing paraffin treatment to keep hands and cuticles fully moisturized.
Lips: Minneapolis-based editorial makeup artist Angelia Senevisai sees a lot of the natives going darker lip in any number of skin-flattering hues. She’s a fan of everything fromCoverGirl to MAC to get the job done, especially some of the liquid lipsticks. She recommends going for brighter shades of pink and red and avoiding dark browns. Whilematte is a popular look, you have to watch out for how it creases on lips in the colder temperatures.
Eyes: The overall makeup look is rather understated. “I think more women tend to wear a more natural makeup look,” says Angelia. That translates into a swipe of mascara, a dab of shimmering eyeshadow and going light on the eyeliner.
The Twin Cities might be covered in snow for half of the year, but the bright white stuff makes a lovely blank canvas for a striking makeup and hair look.
