ombré or reverse ombré color… is it for you?

ombré |ˈämˌbrā|
adjective:
(of a fabric) having a dyed, printed, or woven design in which the color is graduated from light to dark.
ORIGIN French, past participle of ombrer ‘to shade.’

are you feeling it’s time for something new? ombré color is all the rage these days. look in any fashion or hollywood magazine. there’s beauuuuuuutiful!!! and some? not so much. wa wa waaaa… this is about color that is darker at the regrowth, or roots, and slowly fades from that dark color into softer lighter ends or vice versa. so steer away from the two tone. this can be ‘a look’, but to be more versatile and complimentary keep the colors a little more subtle.

i’m much more driven to the softer subtle and sexy flow of color. look at jeannie! she’s glowing, flowing and showing you a beautiful example of ombré color and stylewinder waves.


short and sassy…

here are some photos of not only my favorite clients, but also some of my favorite haircuts these days. i just love cutting short hair! glossy color and texture give these modern hairstyles dimension. soft and fringy perimeters keep these looks feminine. hope you bask in the sass…. i always do.

book your appointment today if you’re ready to go for it! feel gorgeous. get noticed.

prebook!

hey!  just a friendly reminder to book your appointments through the holidays.  i totally ‘get’ that you’re ‘over’ me reminding you…  but what ends up happening is if you don’t book, new people end up taking the time slots that you want…. so i’m unable to work you in… and that’s not good.  can you believe the holidays are creeping upon us?  sheesh!

do you dry poo?

aren’t you sick of shampooing your hair and you color not lasting as long as you like? yup. me too. dry shampoos are all the rage these days and there are many reasons why. even if you’re as greasy as if you just received a jheri curl you can control it with dry shampoos. and if your hair is flat as a pancake… the dry shampoo will perk that up too! but many of you are telling me that you’re having trouble using them…. correctly. so here are a few tips to help you get the oomph and reduce the oil slick.

dry shampoos can not only save you time in the morning….. they can really save your hair. the detergents in standard shampoos and the overuse of styling tools are usually what really end up compromising the integrity of the  hair fiber in the first place…. so putting that off for an extra day or two can help reduce the amount of ‘work’ that gets into your locks. and if you’re one of those ladies that says, “well, i work out everyday and my hair gets too sweaty.”…all the more reason to give this a try. just simply blowdry out the moisture in your hair and follow the steps below.

first~ pick out an aerosol dry shampoo. i’ve used the high end stuff and i’ve used the stuff from sally’s beauty or the drugstore. i honestly haven’t noticed a huge difference among them.

next~ section your hair in about 1 1/4 inch sections and spray the dry shampoo in at the scalp. no need to spray right in your part and also no need to spray from the widest part of your head and lower. got that? stay away from your part, ears and nape.

finally~ massage the sprayed product into your scalp with your fingers. go on!  really rough it up!  this will make the ‘powdery’ consistency distribute through your hair more evenly. if you’ve really overdone it simply brush your hair out with a dense bristled brush.

i’ve saved time, my color, and my hair.  give it a shot and let go of the slicko AND the psycho.  :O)

the redder the better

so here’s the deal. i’ve been growing out my hair…for a lifetime, it seems. wow! i’ve gotten bored! i was dying to cut it off. i was looking for great photo ideas, checking out the girls rocking short hair, but i also didn’t want to act too irrationally. just because i was bored didn’t mean that i needed to slaughter off all my efforts of growing this hair. i wanted to maintain long, luxurious locks!!! truth be told i didn’t ‘feel’ like a stylist with my current look. i’m so used to looking ‘edgy’ or whatever you want to call it and was feeling fooey that i didn’t. so what do i do? i do a blog on bangs. yea, that’s what i do! so now i have more bangs and they are great! life is pretty good. nothing traumatic is going on… but, still, i’ve had it with my hair! why??? so i get the brazilian blowout and i think, ‘wow! my hair is so shiny, healthy and manageable! i love it!’…. but i hate it. have you been here before??? i’m a gal who has worn very short hair most of my life and while i love, love love short hair… i just don’t feel that it is ‘me’ right now. i don’t want to cut my hair off! so as you can assume i opt to color my way out of this situation and i couldn’t be happier that i did. really, this time!!! check it out.
