At my salon we are now using Prevana Color!!!
Prevana is a plant based color that also has Keratin in it. The Keratin gives the hair strength and tons of shine I absolutely love the way the hair feels and looks!!
In the line the hair also a Demi permanent color called Vivids they come in 11 fun shades, from pinks, purples, to green, blues, reds! If you haven’t seen them check them out!!! The color possibilities are endless.
I am also adding glossing treatment called Kera Glaze it is a two part glaze that is used with heat blow dryer and either flat iron or curling iron and stay in your hair for at least 6 shampoos!!! It’s a great way to keep your lock smooth and shiny and looking amazing!! My client above had the Kera Glaze done. Her hair was very dry from bleaching it was dull. As you can see her hair is shiny and healthier.
I also love the fact that my clients get to have not only shiny hair but less harsh chemicals!! It is great for the stylist and the client.
Go ahead ask your stylist for a new style or just a pop of color!!
Here we are fast approaching fall!! It’s my favorite season!!! Summer is still in full swing, we need to take care of our hair!!
So I have put together a few of my favorite summer items to keep your hair looking and feeling amazing! Please feel free to add any products you love!!!
So here it goes…..
My favorite product right now is….
Kerastase Aqua Seal
It’s a great protectant for your hair if your out in the pool or even swimming in the ocean. It has a great scent and doesn’t over power, it’s a great serum for the hair especially blondes. It works great for your summer hair!
Here is the link below
I also really love Kerastase Nectar Thermique it’s a great leave in treatment before you Blowdry. I use it everyday no lie!! I love this product year round! In summer your hair starts to get a little dry. I like to switch it up and use this through till fall.
Here is the link..
These products work great with a good brush. I always have Ibiza brushes they are light weight cork handle with boar bristles. They are my go to brushes that I always carry with me and are really great for curly hair. They last a very long time and are totally worth the investment!
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!
The poses a great question most women ask themselves when looking for a new hair color. What is ombre? Ombré is a French word which means shading or shaded. It is a gradation technique that takes hair from dark to light. It can a soft or bold transition. The best way to know if Ombré would be right for you is to ask your stylist. One of the benefits of Ombré color is you can go longer between salon visits. Because the hair color is made look like grown out hilights. Always remember to shampoo with color safe products and don’t forget to condition the hair it can get dry during the spring/summer.
Hello it has been a while since I have blogged. I have been really busy lately. Good news and good opportunities. I will let you in when I have all the details I am so very excited!
Today I wanted to show some inspiration. I took a drive today from San Francisco to my home town of Santa Cruz I was inspired by the trees along highway 17.
I was thinking of Spring Hair Fashion 2013 Runway looks…..
Here is another picture from two angles.
Classic Bun with texture at the ends.
What I love is all of these styles are so easy on or off the runway! How do you like to wear your hair?
Here is a fish braid loose and messy. I am happy to see braids are still in for Spring!
The 80′s we may not have loved everything but we sure did have a good time! I mean if you happen to not be born in the era you have been exposed in some way to what fashion and hair at the time. It’s one of my favorite maybe because( I wanted to be Madonna) I still want to live in a material world.
I can almost see my hair now up in a messy ponytail dancing in my room with torn jeans and a comb instead of a real mic. ( I still do this maybe nothing has changed)
I was in love with the hair style, and the rebellion of women I saw on TV not TMZ. So I question in our society the feelings I had as a child to what idols are present in today’s pop culture on YouTube and twitter and all over the Internet. The 80′s were just when MTV was starting to get big and exposing us to celebrities like Michael Jackson and we were watching the videos over and over trying to get the choreography down. Now we google everything and have all our information at our disposal. It is a great thing and can also be overwhelming. Video killed the radio star was right ohoh I met your children but did you tell the video killed the radio star.
Thriller by Michael Jackson was amazing with the clothes all of the leather and I really wanted all his moves and his gloves. I did pretend to have a glove but his voice was incredible and who doesn’t like black I tend to wear my fair share of it. In the world of fashion and celebrities all fashion comes back around.
I really don’t want to go back completely but I love to see how I can make an out fit or someone’s hair a little 80′s in some way. It has shaped my life and maybe you have been touched by a video or a person. We can get away from it completely I still play rubrics cube because I feel child like and I enjoy it. So thank you to the 80′s raise a glass and see you again soon! What is your favorite 80′s icon and why?
If you don’t know then name Chase Kusero creative director at Prive Salon Los Angeles let me introduce him to you. Chase has been doing the locks of some of Hollywood elite like Ozzy Osbourne ring a bell or Paris Hilton, just to name a few.
Chase worked with Chris McMillan who styled Jennifer Aniston during Friends. He then met with hair Icon Laurent D founder of Prive salons. Then they together started a global artistic team in Los Angeles and now includes New York.
I had the pleasure of meeting Chase when he got a job with Sebastian Artistic Team. He had just landed in LA and me being an assistant to an artistic director Jericho Mora at the time. I was one of the first people to show Chase around Santa Monica. It’s always fun to show people around Los Angeles and the sparkle in people’s eyes trying to figure this place out.
Chase opened a salon later in LA and I did work with him for a while. At the time he was doing classes on long hair and perfect hair. It was a great time in LA for me. I left LA eventually and sometimes I think I left some dreams scattered around, for someone to pick up and make something great happen.
It was a great experience and it is inspiring to see what is next. I hope I get the chance soon to see Perfect Hair in action again. It’s been a while since I have had that feeling, being a hairdresser myself for so long it’s easy to get stuck in a box. I think I need to get out, maybe today is a good start.
Much love and continued success in all you endeavors, hope to see you on the runway soon!
See what Chase and his team are creating follow them or book an appointment at Prive Salon in LA or NYC.
I remember like it was yesterday it was 2003 in London and a chilly day. I was in awe of the city and all the cobblestone streets. This California girl was not used to the foggy cool weather of London on Oxford Street. There I was of course Shopping around and I stumbled upon. This amazing three story Mecca!
There were so many shoes!!!! Shoes!! Did I say Shoes!! Oh yes and dresses, skirts and stockings that my heart couldn’t take all of the things so cheap!!!! I was in the store for what seemed like an eternity! I was scouting for shoes
I mean shoes. Yes and scarves and some stockings!
I had never seen anything so big and grand ( this was before forever 21) I had found my secret place of fashion that I cold actually afford on a student budget!
Now I am always shopping online and I am so happy there is one in NYC and now Los Angeles but I have yet to actually walk in and feel as I did the day I discovered it. I do plan on going to LA soon and of course walking down memory lane and shop till I drop! Even though my budget for clothing is bigger we all want to stretch our dollar out at times! I do love to pair a great pair of jeans with a less expensive fun top or shirt.
The reason I was so inclined to write about it is because I saw they are having a little black dress sale!!! Yes they do and I am so excited! LA Fashion Week is fast approaching as well. That is exciting as I have worked with LA fashion week in the past oh so fun!
Topshop can you please come to San Francisco soon!
Check out they have limited edition dresses!
