Health & Beauty Trends Coming In 2017
What To Expect in The New Year

Pinterest is one resource that we turn to again and again for  style inspirationhealthy recipes, and body-sculpting  workouts. And this year we've seen everything from  sweatpants to  unicorn makeup blowing up on the social media site.

Pinterest is now looking ahead to 2017. They just released the  Pinterest 100 board, which outlines trends that are on the rise for next year.  So what is going to be popular in 2017? 

Well, brows made the top of the list, of course. But instead of tutorials that show how to  fill in your arches  with makeup, people will be saving information about the semi-permanent microblading solution. And balayage is still going to be a big search term on Pinterest, but next year it's taking on a new look with an ashy, greige tone. Keep scrolling to see more of the beauty trends topping Pinterest's must-try list.



If you thought the brow trend was going to fizzle out in 2017, think again. This  picture  shows the before-and-after results of a  microblading  treatment. It's a 
semi-permanent way to get full, natural-looking brows. For more information please 
call (403) 783-2999 to book your free consultation with Lisa!



Lip and cheek stains  are on definitely on the trend rise this year. At Altitude Spa we carry a few options in the Jane Iredale makeup line. These Multipurpose lip and cheek stains use all natural ingredients to enhance your natural colouring. Non-drying, 
long-lasting, all natural stains adjusts to your own chemistry for an irresistible shade that will flatter your skin's undertones.



Look how gorgeous chrome nail polish can be! These mirrored manicures are going to replace the coffin nail trend in 2017, according to Pinterest.  Chrome nails are a new addition to Altitude Spa. Phone and book in with one of our nail techs to experience this amazing new trend! 



Charcoal  is already a buzzy ingredient in the beauty aisle, and next year it's going to be even more popular. The jet-black powder is great for absorbing excess oil on acne-prone skin types. Try our new Patchology charcoal take home face masks available in our spa boutique. They eliminate environmental toxins, dirt and dullness in one clean step with a no mess mud masque. Our mineral-rich volcanic ash combined with our innovative FlexMasque™ Technology gets the purifying properties of mud right where you want them (on your face) and not where you don't (all over your sink). It's the neatest way to clear up your complexion and clean out pore­-clogging debris without the dry, tight feel of a traditional mud mask. All your left with is a healthy, youthful glow.
