Spring beauty trends for South Floridians

Rik Rak Salon's co-owner talks to Local 10's MJ Acosta


MIAMI – The latest spring beauty trends are all about looking modern without being fussy.

Raquel Watters, co-owner of Rik Rak Salon in Brickell, opened her doors to show Local 10's MJ Acosta some fabulous yet easy hair and nail tips to punch up your look this spring.

Starting at the top, make sure your hair is polished and clean to make any style look put together. An easy way to do that is with modified pony tail.

"You can have a lot of fun with this pony tail," said Watters. "You can do the double-decker with a ‘poof' on top or just a simple pony tail. But it has to be low at the nape of the neck. That's the latest trend."

You can keep it simple and chic for work or school, then add a little sparkle to dress it up for dinner or drinks. No matter where you're headed you'll look put together and fabulous.

According to Watters, another big trend this season is nail art. Let your creative side out and add a surprise to your nails with a twist on the traditional French manicure. She suggests adding pops of color, metallics and rhinestones.

"You can just have fun and go crazy and each finger can be a different design!"

To tie everything together you'll need the right accessories. Bold hand bags are being worn all over Hollywood by A-List celebrities. You can draw inspiration from high end brands and get the same look at any price point.
