I have been working on Andrea's color for about 8 months now. The long term goal was to use her natural grey as a hi lite in her hair. i have achieved this by using a base color that has no ammonia and no peroxide. Every so often, we do a few foil hi lites and what i end up with is a super soft. natural looking blond, just lovely!

Channeling my inner Venus to create these sexy haircuts!

With Sarah's hair, i keep her layers long and fluid. I keep most of her layers underneath and remove the bulk rather than length. her haircuts just keep getting better and better with time.

With Laura, I decided to use the Brazilian Straightner on the underneath parts of her hair. i took a V section all the way around her hear. The idea was to minimize the bulk in between all her great layers. She now has a much easier time blow drying her hair and her hair looks longer since there is less bulk. Laura's color is also amazing, we do hi lift hiligts using various gold shades. It sparkles....!

I love playing with Gabriella's hair color. She is the perfect pallet to do ANY color on. Usually a person is a certain season, but not Gabriella- she wears all of them and she wears them all so well.
we have gone from bleached white blonde hair, to black, to dark deep cherry red to orange, pink, rasberry,
back to angel blonde, to strawberry red. Each time she comes in we work on a whole new pallet of colors. she challenges me and makes to think about all of my color training. i couldnt of done it without working with some of the best colorist in our industry!

Client Conversations

I had an interesting conversation with a client today about "at what age should a women have shorter hair". This particular client is one of my oldest and favorite clients to work on. i remember back in the 90's when there was a certain age when women would cut all their hair off. It was almost like it was a social order to do so and that it was unacceptable for "older" women to have longer hair.
As i thought about it, if it were back in the 90's, there would of been an age given but these days, things are different! women cary themselves differently the attitude is different. there is no longer an age. When it comes down to it, it's all about how you wear it not what your wearing!

Love the subway in DC. I went to visit a dear friend and to see the B52's In concert. They were amazing even though i have seen them 6 times. They just keep getting better and better.

I am absolutely thrilled now that I have had the Brazilian Hair Straightening...especially now that the hot, humid summer is upon us! It has made getting ready a snap now that I no longer need to flat iron my hair daily! Even when it is hot and humid outside, my hair remains pinstraight as if I just stepped out of the salon!!! Every summer I vacation in LBI and I have always been so disappointed that after flat ironing my hair to make it presentable, I had a headful of frizz literally moments after I stepped outside. If I had a nice curl to my hair, I would embrace it in the humid weather but, as you already know, my hair has a slight wave and has always been a frizzy mess in humidity! Now, even on the most humid of days, I look like I just left your very capable hands in the salon. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! My hair has never been in better condition; I barely need conditioner and it remains silky soft. It has literally changed my life as I have NEVER had wash and go hair. It saves so much time and I will definitely recommend it to all my friends.
