I love when I get to introduce clients to fun, fresh, new ways of enhancing their hair. I love to educate them to the many ways that I can transform their look and personal style. Mind you, that I never force anyone to do anything I merely suggest ideas (plant seeds, if you will) that they can mull over in the moment or in the weeks that follow. Either way, my clients get to decide. THAT said, I always recommend that you consult before you jump…everyone wins! When someone is ‘on board’ we discuss the detail of the process and the cost…not only for the initial appointment but the maintenance going forward as well…again..everyone wins! Sometimes we elect to do part of the process (baby steps) and in future appointments leap to the finish! Other times I get to perform a service that actually saves them time and money in the future. Here’s where the Balayage comes in. Balayage, a French word meaning “to sweep”, has long been touted as an alternate way of highlighting hair (of ANY color, texture or length for that matter!). It’s a ‘free-hand’, painting, technique that seems to be taking on steam here in the mid section of the country and I couldn’t be happier! This is Mary. An exciting change for a High School Sophomore who’d never colored her hair before. LOW maintenance hair color!
Sometimes we get an idea to do something…and while it may seem crazy…we vacillate, put it off or never do it. Then there’s our hair. To that I say, what have you got to lose…it’s just hair…if we don’t like it we can change it! Whether it’s your life or just your hair…never pass up on something fun. Thank you, Paige, for being a willing participant. Pravana-Pink!
After much consideration, Jessie decided to go red. It’s fun, playful, vibrant and best of all…it suits her. We’ve tried all kinds of reds…highlights, solid, red-brown, brown-red but yesterday we mixed up an electric copper-red…Framesi (frah-mee’si ) makes a color line called FRAMCOLOR 2001 and this, my red headed friends, is level 6TRP…with some super bright highlights (Schwarzkopf Bleach). This was fun! Getting your hair done is a definite mood changer and propelled the photo shoot! Thanks Jess. I love you.
Today, my niece is coming over to redeem her birthday present…Fresh, new color & cut and an environmental photo session. It’s just something that I do each year for my niece’s birthdays. I like to call it the gift of time…I get some face-time with them and they, in turn, get to look and be FABulous for the day (and have some photos to prove it!). I love the fact that I have a licensed salon space in my home and can concoct ANYthing for anyONE! Truth be told I think it’s more fun for me!
Here are some shots I’ve gotten of Jessica over the past 5 years..WOW!
What color will she go today????
