In 2019, it’s all about self-care, expressing gratitude, and treating people with kindness. By promoting and encouraging a healthy mind and body, we’re better able care for ourselves and others. And as you’re spreading the love, don’t forget to include your hair! This year, hair trends for colors and styles are all focused on warm, rich colors and healthy, naturally beautiful hair, as opposed to highly processed colors or harsh products that can cause dryness or damage. Book with one of our stylists today to try out these gorgeous looks!
Ashy blondes have been popular for a while now, but in 2019, the trend is definitely leaning toward buttery, warmer blondes. Soft, golden tones enhanced by pearlescent accents are likely to be huge this year.
Stylist Rebecca is also a fan of the shadow root, which occupies the space between a balayage and traditional highlights. It’s brighter than a balayage, but creates a softer root that blends your highlights to create a balayage look with less outgrowth.
Curtain Bangs and ‘70s Shag Cuts
Short haircut trends this season are blunt, above-shoulder bobs that are all one length, with no bangs, and a little bit of beveled graduation – none of the dramatic stacking we’ve seen in previous years.
Check out these examples by stylists Edward and Rebecca.
For longer or medium hair, longer, shaggy layers and curtain bangs are in. Curtain bangs, also called fringe, hit right at the cheekbones, and are typically accompanied by light bangs across the forehead. A great example are these bangs by stylist Cindy.
This year, it’s all about loose movement and texture. To achieve this look, first use a light mousse on your roots, then blow dry straight, adding volume to the crown of your head to give a messy, textured effect.
Once your hair is dry, use the biggest curling iron you have (we’d recommend a 1.5” barrel) on wide sections of your hair, alternating the directions of your curls. This will create curls that have a natural, lived-in look, rather than the perfect spiral/mermaid curls that have been popular for a while.
Experiment with any products that will give your hair natural movement as well as texture and hold, but be careful when using salt sprays, as overuse can dry out your hair.
For styling longer cuts, from our H-Line, we’d recommend our Dry Texture Spray as a must-have, as well as a lighter-hold hairspray such as our Designer Shaping Hairspray.
For serious nourishment and repair, start with a leave-in treatment such as H-Line’s Keratin Therapy and Elixir 11, especially if you have highlighted or color treated hair. For natural curls, we also recommend Ouidad’s Advanced Climate Control® product line to defend against frizz and enhance the definition of your curls.
To further protect your hair before heat styling, consider following this with a blow-dry aid such as H-Line’s Brilliance or My Amazing’s Blow Dry Secret Quick Dry Shake 'n' Spray, which provide heat protection and shorten the amount of time it takes to dry your hair, while simultaneously conditioning it for a soft, silky smooth, shiny, frizz-free finish.

Every 20 minutes a blonde woman dyes her locks brown, leaving her fair-haired friends behind.
Okay, we might have made that statistic up, but when you check out the hottest fashion blogs this season, you’ll invariably see a blonde celeb jumping ship as she dusts off her mirror and regains her senses.
What’s the case for being a brunette?
First off, dark hair looks great on EVERYONE. Period. And lest you think brown hair is boring, check out our top reasons to make brunette your crowning glory:
1. Bronde Balayage Lets You Have The Best of Both Worlds
It’s true, you’re no longer forced to choose between blonde and brunette. Made famous by Gisele Bündchen, “bronde” is the best of both worlds, radiating a warm, springtime hue that is quickly becoming a timeless classic.
2. Warmer Skintones Benefit From Brunette’s Spicier Shades
Unlike bottle-blondes who often struggle against their hair’s natural tendency to swing towards brassy or ashy, brunettes have total control over the warmth of their shade and can custom tailor hints of cinnamon and spice to compliment any skin tone.
3. Brunettes Shine Thanks To A Variety Of Glazes
Because glazes are ammonia and peroxide free, they won’t lift or lighten hair color. Instead, glazes combine mild dyes and shine boosters to increase the depth and vitality of brunette hair colors, leaving your mane full of shine and looking like it’s fresh from the salon for days on end.
4. Brunettes Can Go From Edgy To Classic Without Damaging Strands
Brunette shades are super versatile; you can look chic one day and keep things classy the next. Shiny and bold locks can swirl with definition and glam when long and loose, or be pinned up to appear prim and proper. Worn either way, rich chocolate hues make anyone appear more confident.
5. Being Brunette Is Easier On Your Wallet
Yup, believe it or not, it is much cheaper to have brown hair versus any other hair color available! That’s because being brunette makes roots easier to get away with. Plus, brown-haired gals can find color matches much faster, and they can dye our hair less frequently. If ‘winning’ was still a relevant hashtag, I would be tempted to use it here.
And, If Those Glorious Reasons Weren’t Enough
It turns out that there’s actual statistical data to support the statement that brunettes have it best: A study by Garnier revealed that brunettes are twice as likely as their blonde counterparts to earn more than $65K a year.

Each fall, Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season with a day of gratitude and foodie-bliss. But, the five weeks that follow are generally filled with mounting seasonal stress and a devil-may-care attitude towards our well being.
This year, instead of gorging on sweets cakes and wine to wind down after making your list (and checking it, not twice, but thrice), consider a better way to undo the damage of being under pressure with a pampering spa day at Hoshall’s.
Whether in search of an extended escape or a single treatment, Hoshall’s day spa is the perfect place to disconnect, rejuvenate, and reinspire.
To start your stress relief, allow yourself to be swept away by a Swedish, Deep Tissue, or Hot Stone Massage—each of which improves circulation, releases tension, and leaves you feeling light enough to defy gravity.
From there, experience the clarity-boosting, anti-aging power of our skincare experiences. As you lay comfortably swaddled in warmed sheets, drifting away to soothing sounds, our expert estheticians will treat your skin to impeccable pore-cleansing, surface-smoothing, vitamin-infusing, and eyebrow-grooming treatments, leaving you glowing with flawless, no-need-for-makeup results.
To feel like total perfection from head to toe, don’t forget to give your fingers and feet their own red carpet treatment. Hoshall’s Signature Manicure and Signature Pedicure go a step beyond polish, revitalizing hands and feet with a series of luxurious treatments designed to smooth and restore moisture.
Taking a pre-festivities refresher day is a wonderful way to become more attuned to your body and mind—and better equipped to deal with holiday stress.
And don't forget to arrive early! Access to Hoshall’s private patio and Turkish-inspired amenities are included with every service, enhancing your sense or serenity or providing the perfect atmosphere in which to spend time with visiting family and friends—we'll even provide your party with a delectable lunch.

We are so proud to feature a stunning new mural from local artist Leah Currey on our back patio for our spa and hair guests to enjoy on their visit to the salon. We love being a part of the local community of Folsom California and are inspired every day by the people and beautiful landscape of Foslom. What better way to pay tribute to the town that we love than a mural of the beautiful Rainbow Bridge!
About Leah Currey the Artist
I am inspired by nature, people, patterns, and forms. In my paintings, I am interested in interpreting and expanding on aspects of nature that have been so arbitrarily strewn about. I seek to enhance colors and shapes and put elegant forms together in naive ways to bring forth a dreamy state of existence, based in the natural world. I am absolutely influenced by my education and degree in the biological sciences-- knowing the intricacies of what goes on in the world only serves to make the life blossoming around me more beautiful. I am grateful to the many teachers I've had in my artistic education, and have explored numerous mediums and techniques under their guidance. I have had the opportunity to sculpt metal, clay, and glass; draw the figure from life and create new faces from nothing; paint in plein air, from photographs, and on canvases many times bigger than I. I also revel in the opportunity to pass on my knowledge to others. I have murals in Oakland, Davis, and Folsom, California. Besides art, I enjoy being outdoors, trying new things, and stopping to smell the roses
I hate my hair. We’ve all been there, right?
Sixteen months ago, my mid-length locks had been unintentionally chopped into the infamous “I’d like to speak with the manager” cut. Too traumatized to attempt a fix, I’d settled for hiding it under hats and bobby pins.
Needless to say, it wasn’t a great long-term plan. So, when the folks at Hoshall’s Salon & Spa heard just how badly I hated my grown-out haircut, they graciously invited me to give their services a spin, I jumped at the chance.
It’s rough heading back into the salon after a long absence: Do you try to style that bird’s nest or just wander in with a nappy bun of shame? And, what happens if you hate the next haircut?
To ease my deep-seated fear of the stylist’s chair, I made sure to prepare with ample pics of hairstyles I hoped we might be able to achieve and then patiently waited for the date of my appointment to arrive.
I had a 4:15 pm appointment, and, from the second I walked in, was greeted with smiles—the receptionist, my stylist Michelle, even by name written in pretty cursive on a chalkboard all expressed a warm, and friendly greeting.
Despite arriving slightly late, the receptionist made sure that I was offered tea or coffee and cookies for a nosh.
Do you hate arriving at a salon, only to have to wait for your stylist to wrap up their previous appointment?
Michelle, who turned out to be so sweet she’s likely made of sugar, was ready to go the moment got there, too. Which, after having to wait around at other salons—sometimes up to half an hour after your appointment time—the fact that everything was ready to go made this experience awesome right off the bat.
Armed with photos, I sat down in Michelle’s chair and unwound my bun of shame while explaining that my hope was to continue growing it out, so hopefully she could shape up the layers.
All that prep work? It turns out, was totally unnecessary.
The full 20 years of Michelle’s experience was evident in just a few seconds. She explained where the current cut was making my face look wider, how longer layers in one area were creating a lack of volume and, best of all, her plan to fix it.
Then it was time to get down to business. The time flew by as Michelle shampooed, conditioned, cut, and styled. When she spun me around for a final check of the back, I couldn’t believe that:
Michelle had even created a top layer at my crown that could be bumped up for volume in the back, or swooshed to either side for a deep part depending on my style on any day.
All-in-all, getting a cut at Hoshall’s was an exceptional. Do I still hate my hair? Just the opposite — this haircut is so fantastic, it’s turned into my favorite accessory.
Bonus? The salon was clean and poshly decorated, the staff was friendly. And, as for Michelle, I absolutely loved my cut and couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
You wouldn’t go months without working out and expect to be in great shape—why assume your skin can do the same?
Spa facials are more than an occasional indulgence or an option only to be considered when battling a skin concern. Facials are an investment, paying off with each glance in the mirror.
But why monthly? As the outermost layer of your skin is renewed in 28-day cycles, monthly facials give new cells a head start. Additionally, even prescription-strength treatments require six to eight weeks to start to take effect. Spa facials speed up the renewal process, helping your daily products work faster and more effectively.
Aside from feeling like heaven, here are a few ways that Hoshall’s spa facials promote healthier, younger looking skin and help you keep your glow:
Your skin is exposed to pollutants every day, leaving dirt, grime, and even chemicals on your skin. Spa facials include cleansing that penetrates deeper than your daily rinse—cleaning out clogged pores, preventing breakouts, and addressing any damage caused by exposure to the elements.
Gone are the days when skin was classified only as dry, oily, or combination. A spa facial gives your esthetician the opportunity to pinpoint problem areas and suggest preventative or corrective actions to aggressively treat a number of skin situations.
Similar to getting a massage, the gentle, sweeping movements that occur during a spa facial help to increase circulation, facilitating the renewal of skin cells. Facial massages also relax the muscles that lead to fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily smoothing the surface of your skin.
While traditional facials have always involved removing dead skin as part of aiding cellular renewal, advancements in microdermabrasion have taken this process even further. Unlike exfoliating scrubs sold for at-home use, microdermabrasion helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production for long-term skin health.
The ingredients contained in today's professional skin care products are designed for deeper penetration into the skin, increasing hydration and stimulating cells. Combined with facial massage, your skin immediately appears smoother, firmer in texture, and with more defined facial contours.
The last phase of every spa facial is designed to calm the skin and bring it back into balance. Breakthroughs in LED lights allow your esthetician to do more than balance your skin’s pH, taking down inflammation and targeting conditions such as premature aging, rosacea and hyperpigmentation for improvements that last.

Which Spa Facial Is Right For You?
Not sure how to choose the right facial? With as many types of facials out there as there are skin concerns, selecting the perfect facial may seem a little confusing—especially if you have combination skin or more than one skin problem you’d like addressed.
To help you select the perfect facial treatment, we recommend considering which of the following reasons you’d like your esthetician to address:
If your skin feels clogged or uneven in texture, and would benefit from a deep cleansing
If your skin is sensitive, sallow or blotchy, and potentially suffers from acne
If your skin is dry, patchy, and you’ve seen an increase in fine lines
If your complexion appears a bit drained, and would benefit from firming and plumping
If you want to prevent future skin problems, and maintain healthy, glowing skin
Regular facials are the key to clear, smooth and radiant skin throughout the year. By understanding which skin concerns you hope to address, your Hoshall’s esthetician can suggest the perfect spa facial, and even customize your treatment with our Facial Enhancements.
Don’t forget to take advantage of our spa’s relaxing atmosphere! For an immersive, relaxing experience, we invite you to come early or schedule plenty of time between treatments, to enjoy our Turkish Steam Shower and Desert Hot Sauna. Our spa coordinators will even welcome you with lunch and wine, to be enjoyed on our patio, perfect for serenely unwinding or gathering with friends.
Take the first step to healthier, happier skin and a blissful day of relaxation, by signing up for a Hoshall's monthly membership!
If you saw a photo of a woman with stick-straight hair and a middle part, or another with fluffy hair and permed bangs, you’d likely be able to immediately recognize the decade of each. Hair trends aren’t the only defining characteristics of an era; though not quite as obvious, eyebrows can be indicative of moment in time, too.
Back in the ‘80s, the most advanced brow-care one could hope to find in the hands of an esthetician was waxing. In those days, the process consisted of sitting upright with a technician at your side, while brows were formed into a matching comma-like shapes.
Modern Brows Should Frame Your FaceThankfully, the one-shape-fits-all view is no longer en vogue and tides have turned towards approaching brows as works of art—not to mention, one of the most important features of your face.
While beauty experts now approach each brow job as unique—based on your bone structure, of course—certain aspects of brow shaping can still be seen as on-trend. Modern brows have moved to a thicker, fuller shape overall, with either a square, highly-groomed front, a round, natural shape, or a combination of both as dictated by your face shape.
Strong Definition is a MustWhy all the fuss about brows? Because eyebrows do much more than frame your eyes. Like a signature hair color or style choice, brows play their part in defining your look. They also tell others around you a story—your story. Are you confident? Tired? Sad? Powerful?
Bottom line, if you don’t have great brows with really strong definition, you’re probably not doing yourself justice. Thankfully, brow tinting can make even the most sparse or unruly brows appear gracefully natural, without taking any time out of your daily never-spare-a-minute schedule.
What Is Brow Tinting?Unlike shaping waxing, threading, or tweezing, brow-tinting is a color service that doesn't take away any hair (although you can do so in conjunction with hair removal) but uses semi-permanent vegetable dye to enhance color, shape, and thickness—or all of the above.
And the benefits are immediate—brows look groomed with zero effort.
Plus, when professionally applied, tinting adds more structure to each hair strand. This gives you a stronger arch and thicker brows, without even touching them with brow pencil or powder.
Even if your brows are already dark, tinting may find hair that you didn’t realize you had. This is because some people’s growth tends to come in blonde, and tinting grabs those peach-fuzz hairs, filling in each brow shape to their desired arch.
