So I got my hair cut yesterday….
And as a stylist, I know exactly what I want. All stylists do. In fact, we can be a true pain in the fanny when it comes to our hair. And since I KNOW what I want, I described it to my hairdresser.
I wanted my hair:
- Cut just past my shoulders with a shattered baseline
- Wispy ends
- Full through the crown
Basically a Gypsy shag from the ’70’s. Nobody could get this wrong. Right? Read More
Balayage is a French free-handed painting technique that has been a fashion forward look since the 1970s. I first tried balayage 30 years ago (as a mere newbie) after seeing a demo at the International Beauty Show (IBS) at the Jacobs Javits Center in NYC. I tried it on a girlfriend with little success. In fact, it was a blotchy mess! Read More
Spring 2016 is all about BANGS. Whether you want medium weight bangs, bridge-of-the-nose-grazing side-swept-sassy bangs, or barely-there fringe-over-one-eye bangs -- Bangs are back! Just be sure that you’re ready for the commitment. We all know what a pain growing out bangs can be. On average, our hair grows about 6 inches a year - and that’s without trimming! Read More
Red is… well, red hot right now. Gorgeous warm coppery reds or a rich mahogany red always catch our eye… but, are you ready for all that red? If you are go for it! But, if it seems like a bit too much, opt for some highlights of a true fashion forward tone to kick up your look. Read More
Holy crap it's Monday and xmas is on Friday. Deep breath...it's ok. I've got two of my faves, (stocking stuffers, office gifts, or a little something for your girlfriends), and under $20 bucks. Read More
Wow. What a crazy ride summer of ’15 was.
My newest studio officially went live. What a delight for me to get this project up and running. It's both a wonderful feeling and opportunity to meet the needs of my clients without all the baggage of a big salon – so much more peaceful. Read More
And to my surprise, Modern Salon asked me to write a tutorial article about a current color trend. Three magazines picked up the article. What a crazy feeling to know my work is way more than just relevant.
As an ABCH Educator and Master Haircolorist, I've had the opportunity to teach ombre techniques to colorists across the country. The recent 2015 ABCH Energizing Summit was one of the best ever. This year the stylists who attended had some experience in doing ombré, but wanted to fine tune their skills on this hot hair color trend.
For years I've included balayage techniques in conjunction with ombre in my own practice. Why? Simply, because they work so well together. I’ve found that by merging the two techniques I’m able to achieve even better results than using just ombré alone. Read More
I just returned from teaching at ABCH Energizing Summit in LA, an educational event that offered classes ranging from accounting, to social media to grow your business, to hair color techniques that would blow your mind. Read More
