What does your hair say about you?


Our hairstyle will hopefully evolve as we age. Some people don’t change their hairstyle much in their whole life. They have the same hair and never chose to change it. But these days the younger generation loves it.

Katie Curic – This hairstyle is very versatile and looks good on her. It’s short but had a  side swept fringe. The color is good on her skin. This is a good low maintenance hairstyle and has some body. This haircut is ideal for fine to medium hair types.


Her is one of my all time favorite hairstyles Short Pixie Sharon Stone pulls this one off well. There are a lot of celebrities chopping their locks lately. I love this because it’s effortless and easy to wear. Ideal face shape is oval and her eyes are blue which accentuates her color. This haircut should be trimmed every 3-6 weeks. 


Eva Longoria is famous for her long tresses. She had such a beautiful hair it’s medium to thick type hair. Her speck of golden hilights is perfect for her olive skin. Long hair is the epic Hollywood Glamour. The staple of actresses and super models. Chocolate brown color is rich and my favorite color for fall.

Try a different haircut or color be bold or soft . Ask your stylist what they think….till next time

Trends of Hair Color 2015

Lets talk about the ever changing world of ……..Hair Color  

Honestly I can get down for days about hair color done amazingly well it takes skill, patience , a keen eye, not to mention years of practice! Don’t get me started on all of the classes,  one must take! Let’s all feast our eyes in the woman below yeah I know it’s John Legends wife…Chrissy Tiegen


So here let me wave my magical wand and Boom you turn into a super model!! How I wish it was that easy right..

Ok let’s be honest not everyone is this blessed. That hair color is on point. 

This hair color is soft su kissed and has the right amount of chocolate low lights. It’s like the perfect expresso….I love expresso don’t you?

  Moving on Pastels, now these tones done correct are beautiful!  You must maintain the color depending on how it fades. Sometimes on certain people (pale skin tones) it works. Theses not for the faint at heart. Kelly Osbourne does it fiercely. This pallet of pinks, blue, grey is a winning combination don’t you think..


This is a kind ombré  esk Venice Beach Dirty Blonde babe vibe. It reminds me of salt, sunshine, lazy days, hot sun and sex sex sex…

I appreciate a good surfer chic look just like the one above..I mean maybe it’s my Cali lifestyle. I love low maintenance hair it’s slept in, unkept and flawless. 

 Techniques will change and evolve play with your hair and find something you may love…

Stay sexy, 

What’s your favorite haircolor?

Prevana color for Fall

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!!

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. Here is the link below,default,sc.html


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.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.


Ombré or not to Ombré

20130312-171256.jpg 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.






Inspiration Spring Trends Hair 2013

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…..

I love this slick and tucked ponytail.


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!

Flash back 80s Hair and Style

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.



20130308-133601.jpgI 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?

Stay Beautiful


Chase Kusero Perfect Hair Guru

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.

Stay Beautiful
