Hair disasters

Hair disasters

Hair disasters sometimes start when a client does not trust the stylist in front of them.  Even though my post is funny it is true.  Well not the unicorn part, but it might as well be.  Once in awhile a new client will be in my chair for a consultation and have a list of […]

Brunettes with highlight ideas

brunettes with highlight ideas

Brunettes with highlight ideas have a huge variety of tones to pick from for skin tone and eye color.  When a darker brunette wants to “lighten up” I notice the first words I hear usually are….”I DO NOT WANT TO BE BLONDE!”  I know what they mean because when I see a bad highlight on […]

Covering Gray hair

Covering Gray

Covering Gray hair is sometimes needed.  My client wanted to try to grow out her natural ashen (salt & pepper hair color for a change.  She is only in her mid 30′s and her actual hair color grown out was too ashen that it started to prematurely age her.  She is too young to look […]
