Color Trends for Fall/Winter 2013-14

As fall draws in many of us are feeling inspired to swap our summery highlights for a more seasonally appropriate hue. If this is the case then look no further. From warm tones to ‘bronde’ (brown-blonde) we have this season’s most desirable colors ready for you!


The New Blonde

Blondes! Bright is out! Adding brown and golden tones is a fast and none too drastic way to your hair to get your hair ready for fall. Swap over-bleached blonde highlights for a select few, subtly placed ones that will frame the face.



Yes, you read that correctly. One of our favorite shades for fall is ‘bronde’, not quite brown and not quite blonde. ‘Bronde’ hair is that perfect shade that’s somewhere between blonde and brunette. This is a great way for natural brunettes to experiment with a lighter shade without committing to the change and maintenance of full-on blonde!


Brunettes go For Gold

For a warmer, on-trend, look for fall brunettes can draw attention to their features with warm golden, caramel or chestnut slices of color around the face. This technique is also a good idea for those who are looking to revamp their summer ombre.


Dark Brunette Lowlights

Lowlights add depth, tone and a subtle shine for dark brunettes that want to update their hair color in a not-so-obvious manner.


Redheads go Darker

Shades of red are always popular for fall, this year is no exception. Fall 2013’s red heads are experimenting with darker roots to add depth, and warm brown undertones to give a deeper red hue.

Color Trends for Spring/Summer 2013

Thinking of revamping your color this summer? You’ve come to the right place! EIDEAL has all the hottest color trends to guide you to your new look!

ImageWarm Blonde

For years bright platinum blondes have reigned, but this season the SS’13 catwalks were full of warmer more natural looking blonde hues. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s color is perfect for a refreshing summers day look!

ImageSoft Tangerine

January Jones went from blonde bombshell to a fiery vixen with her color change this season. The star is just the latest in a long line of celebrities to adopt an orange tinge to their hair, others include Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone and Blake Lively.


Sombre (Soft Ombre!)

Following on from the wildly popular ombre trend of 2012, we have sombre. This is a more gradual and natural look, perfect for those who want to experiment with a color change (but not too much!). Nicole Richie embraces the trend here with an edgy bob.

ImageDeep Red

As tempting as it is to draw comparisons between Scarlett Johansson’s first name and her new ruby colored tones we will refrain. Redheads seem to be having the most fun recently, with red being the most popular color-change!

ImageHoney Highlights

Honey colored highlights are a great way to get in the spirit of summer. They work especially well on brunettes with a warm skin tone and instantly lift the complexion!

Haysam Eid, The man behind EIDEAL™

Haysam Eid, The man behind EIDEAL™

Haysam Eid, The man behind EIDEAL™

  1. Haysam you are a young and ambitious person doing business in the beauty industry. How come you chose this sector?

I was raised in a family where Art and Beauty are major. Mr. Younes Eid, my father, is one of the most famous hairdressers worldwide and the owner of Salon YOUNES EID the 3rd Best Salon in the World as ranked by ESTETICA Design in 2005. In fact, he is not only a hair stylist, but also a painter. My talents, ability and proficiency flourished owing to his constant support and back up. He granted me his good taste and savoir-faire in the world of beauty, and he still inspires me in each and every step toward success and special achievements. I myself won the first award of Fabriano painting competition at school, when my artistic tendency was discovered.

2. As far as we know you started your career after graduating from the worlds’ greatest hairstylist academy in London. Share with us your experience there.

After finishing school, it was the time to take a major decision in my life: shall I join university as most of people do or follow the path I finally chose? At that time, everything was just a simple idea I had to share at some point with my family before taking the final decision. For me, I always wanted to do something different; I don’t necessarily mean by different something that no one ever did, yet different is to have a unique twist. I thought I would do it the other way around; I would learn hairdressing at a young age and then join the university. On one hand, my father disagreed since he never expected nor wanted me to become a hairdresser; on the other, my mother supported me to the end and advised me to follow my instinct. Therefore, after convincing my father, I decided to join the world’s greatest hairstyling academy in London, where I completed my cutting and styling studies and accomplished TONI&GUY Cut & Color NVQ course (in 2004). I went to London when I was a kid, and this country played a major role in my life: I found out a lot about different cultures and people where I learned how to be completely independent. When I first joined the academy, it was weird to have student from abroad since the majority of students came from England itself. I had to work hard and to prove myself. And I did it. I still remember the last day of the graduation when I did a photo shoots for the models; I made every possible effort and I used all my skills to succeed. My goal that day was to surprise my father who couldn’t attend the graduation. I also owe my mother this success for being present besides me on my graduation day and for doing the makeup for the models; it is noteworthy that makeup was her passion and so art runs in the family. Finally I came back to Lebanon with a pleasant and rich portfolio, from which many pictures are picked up for the salon ads.

3. Up to now you are the only hair stylist in the Middle East region that you successfully completed the prestigious L’Oreal Professional Specialist Degree. What does this means for you?

Being the only hair stylist in the Middle East to have successfully completed the prestigious L’Oreal Professional Color Specialist Degree means a lot to me, especially that it wasn’t easy to get there. I first had to sit for an entrance examination to ensure that I enjoy the right level. I was first rejected not because I failed in the examination, but because this course was designated only for the hairdressers in England, as I was informed later on. At this stage, I got really upset, because despite the fact that I have passed the examination and achieved great results, they didn’t offer me the opportunity to proceed. Thus, I sent an email to the competent party insisting that it was unfair to take such a decision and objecting to the fact that they made me sit for the test knowing in advance that my candidature is rejected. I think my persistence got me there, because I finally got an acceptance. I even graduated with 94%. The last day, the director came to me saying, “Did you notice that you were the 11th student on the course this year?” I said, “so what?” He answered, “We usually take 10 people only since it’s an intensive course and you were an exception, very well done, I am proud of you!” I will never forget those words. I will never forget the tough moments when I saw some people leaving the course crying, while I had the chance to continue till the end. I am definitely proud of such an achievement.

4. Your father Younes Eid runs a really well known Salon in Beirut in Lebanon. You mentioned that he is your idol, the person who inspired you most. Tell us some things about him and what lessons did he teach you?

Yes, my father has always been my idol, at the very beginning; he taught me the modesty, an essential component for success, in addition to the hard work to achieve the goals. He used to tell me “no one is better than you Haysam, if something is doable, then you can do it!” I believe in these words and that’s how I have made it here so far.

5. Who is the most famous person that you ever took care in the Salon there?

For me, every client is famous; she comes to my salon to make her feel famous. She comes to me to take good care of her beauty and to give her all the needed professional attention and advice. This is hairdressing. For me, the hairdresser is a physician. A client wouldn’t go to the hairdresser if she hasn’t a problem with her hair, and by fixing this problem, you should make her happy, satisfied and self confident, because she wears her hair every day. If she doesn’t like it, she can’t take it off! I believe I got the trust of all my clientele, and I have taken care not only many people well known in the art field, but also of famous men and women in the high class society, but I prefer not to mention their names as respect for their privacy.

6. You grew up in Beirut. May you describe us the neighborhood where you spend your childhood?

I was born and I grew up in Sidon (Saida in Arabic), the capital of the South of Lebanon; I lived in that town until I changed school and moved to Beirut. Saida is a small city, where people know each other. It is surrounded by beautiful orchards of oranges, lemon, banana and loquat trees. I lived a beautiful childhood with my family and school friends.

7. What your country, Lebanon, means for you?

Lebanon is home for me, it’s where I belong, where I was raised and where my best memories are. It’s where I got my education and culture.

8. At this moment you have created your own brand, EIDEAL (www.eidealonline.com) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Tell us some things about your company.

9. How the idea of your company came in your mind?

I joined university to major in Business Management and I learned to combine the artistic and creative sense with my entrepreneurial and managerial capacities. My vision was to create a brand for my own salon use, as to complete the march of my father, the designer and creator of a small range of personal use brushes, and to take it to a higher and more developed level. Thus, it is only through holding to this vision, that my work and accomplishment were brought into manifestation. However, my ambitions were limitless and my dreams were ever growing. Charged with enthusiasm and backed up by persistence, I decided to establish EIDEAL™; a brand combining my name with idealism and specialized in hair appliances, accessories, brushes and scissors for professional hair salons. In fact, the idea of EIDEAL™ came to my mind in 2008, started with one product and didn’t take long to expand and cover a wide range of products.

10. What kind of difficulties you faced in your early beginning? May you share us some experiences from that time?

Difficulties are always there at the beginning, especially when you start something from scratch, I built the brand from zero, coming up with the name, concept, products, designs, technology, etc…, and I set up the whole team and distribution channel, trying to convince people about the brand, product and quality. But we finally got to the point where people loved the brand and trusted it.

11. What is your vision for EIDEAL?

Currently, EIDEAL™, the pioneer hair appliances and accessories brand in the region is growing at a very fast pace, thanks to the creative designs and first-class techniques used to provide the customers with great products and unsurpassed services. This is just the beginning of a long promising future in the beauty field; I will always dedicate my creativity and technical hair skills, sense of innovation and the world’s most refined techniques to develop my brand to be Excellent and IDEAL.

12. Dubai is a place where a lot of global celebrities are choosing either to live or to visit. Do you believe that this city may play a major role in the future of the beauty industry?

Absolutely with all what we’ve seen so far in Dubai, I believe everything is doable.  In fact, it is a favorable place for the businesses prosperity. Dubai is a very modern and flourishing city and I am sure that it will play a major role in the future of the beauty industry as in other fields because it is becoming the hub of development in the region.

13. Do you have any expression that represents the way you live?

I can make it…

14. Has your life been different than you have imagined?

I don’t think my life has been so different than I have always imagined. But definitely it was affected in a way or another by different factors. I am definitely still heading to my main goal and objective set from the very beginning. However, I had to change some tactics to get there, and hopefully I will make it!

15. If you could have the chance to do the hair stylist of a celebrity, who this one would be and why?

I would like to do the hair of Penelope Cruz.

I personally love simplicity and I find her simple yet so attractive, charming, elegant and sexy.

16. In order to close this interview, will you tell us how you define beauty?

Numerous are the magazines featuring the most beautiful people in the world, and they are all trying to answer this question “What is beauty?” In fact it’s very simple; beauty is the combination of qualities pleasing the aesthetic senses and especially the sight.
