Foam hair color vs. Regular

foam hair color

Foam hair color vs. Regular hair color is not a new concept.  Its funny to me how back in the 60s they put the foam hair color  on the market as a “no mess, no drip way” to color your hair.  Then decades later in 2015 the commercials have a voice over of a British […]

Kim Kardashian Blonde

Kim Kardashian Blonde is a subject I felt I had to address.  I am going to try to stay neutral on this subject as I am not a big fan of this person.  But when I read an article on how Kim basically said, “Madonna was my inspiration.”  Ok well as the rest of us […]

Bob haircuts for thin hair

bon for thin hair

Bob  haircuts for thin hair are always a win win.  I have been noticing a trend of the long, barrel iron curls being chopped off for a clean liberating slight A-line bob.  From thick to thin hair the clean slightly layered bob is classic and elegant.  So many options to style it.  Air dry, flat-iron, […]

A-line bob haircut is always classic and always on trend.  I have been noticing a big trend in my salon and in the world around me.  Seems from Kelly Ripa, to Heidi Klume, to the dental hygenist in my chair.  The trend is the classic slight A-line bob.  Not the bob that Barbara Streisand did […]

New Year new hair

New Year new hair is what my brave friend/client was all about.  She has overcome major stuff the last year and decided 2015 was about new ways of looking at things including herself.  She wanted the freedom of not blow drying her thick, wavy hair out.  Doing tons of foil work to give her natural […]

Bleach blonde hair

bleach blondes done right

Bleach blonde hair can look shiny and healthy with the right application and products used.  People sometimes will say things like…”he is really good with blondes”  or “he is good with red heads.”  I feel a true color specialist is good at all color and knowing tonal values and how to use color to make […]
