Make Over Of The Month!!

I love when a client sits in my chair and says,"Do whatever you have to do, but this is what I want and need"
 Trust me and I will fix your hair fiasco! 

This busy mom came to me for a style that
would be an easy fix in the morning with minimal styling time!

Looking through her curly frizzy locks I decided we needed to do the Keratin Smoothing Treatment to give her the manageable texture to have a minimal styling time.

 She sat back with a good book, relaxed with a glass of wine and in two and a half hours this is her new style...

She was extremely happy with her new Merlot color, shoulder length a-line cut and now has a styling time of 10 minutes from towel dry to smooth and sexy!

Love the Pixie? So Do I. But Can You Wear it?

Short Cuts Are All The Rage This Holiday Season!
One of my Favorites is the Pixie!
Ahhh, the pixie. When Ginnifer Goodwin cut off her shoulder-length hair for the pixie, it was big news on beauty blogs. Other celebs followed suit and now there are enough gorgeous pixie cuts to choose from on your favorite Celeb!

Not everyone looks good in super-short hair, however. As a tall woman, I feel like I'd look like a pinhead with a pixie haircut, yet readers point out that Jamie Lee Curtis is tall and looks great with hers. Women who are petite look great with super-short cuts. Avoid this style if you are very overweight. You want more hair to balance out your body. It's also not a great look for women with long faces or super curly hair.

Short Hairstyles All The Rage This Holiday Season!

Which Cut Works Best With Your Face Shape?

Almost every woman can wear short hair. The secret is finding the right cut for your face shape and hair texture. 

 The #1 rule when choosing a short hairstyle: Choose a cut that flatters your face shape. Short cuts are popular because they make your features the center of attention. Here are a few tips that should help you: 

If you have a square face, show off your strong jaw with a bob that hits you at the jawbone. Make sure to ask your stylist for a "graduated bob" which is shorter in back and angles longer towards the front. Something similar to this cut on Christina Ricci.

If you have a round face, consider a short cut that ends an inch or two below the jawbone and has a few long layers, like this long bob on Sandra Bullock. I also love this pixie hairstyle on actress Ginnifer Goodwin. 

Many women with long face shapes have a high forehead. Cover up your large forehead with blunt or side-swept bangs like these..

Keep your color Warm this cold season!

Having your colorist (ME) weave in warmer lowlights will fight that washed-out look. When choosing the base color, think buttery or honey tones—not too platinum or beige. 

Richer, warmer tones will look fresher. “Cooler, ashy tones can be aging.” Also, if your hair and skin are fairly dark, ease into blondeness with a light-brown base, possibly sprinkled with highlights.That takes the edge off gray and allows you to test going golden. Then, if you like the results, you can go lighter later.

Cut Of the Month! Winter Chic...

     Try this chin length choppy bob this season! A perfect match for snugly turtle necks and sassy scarves. Remember the best fashion accessory is your hair!

5 Easy Ways to Shave Off the Years!!!

  1. Add Bright Highlights Around Your Face -just like a bronzer perks up your skin, a few ribbon thin highlights scattered through your mane casts a subtle glow!

2. Sweep Bangs to One Side- blunt bangs draw attention to wispy hair and make wrinkles more obvious, whereas a soft swoop is forgiving and covers up fine lines.

3. Keep Short Hair Tousled- to keep this cut youthful, add volume to the roots with a volumizing mouse, I like UNITE EXPANDA Volume, Root Energizer.

 4. If You Have Fine Or Thinning Hair, Stick To A Cut That Is All One Length- to Maximize body in the hair go with a bob, or a "lob" the long bob, a collarbone length crop. These styles bounce and swing!

5.Go For Maximum Shine-Baby your hair, try not to use hot tools more than 5 times a week. You should do a hair mask at least every two weeks that contains shea butter or almond oil. Also consider an in salon treatment at least once every two months.
Also use a light weight shine spray, like UNITE U Luxury Oil.
