It exists, and it’s awesome. If you have a client who loves the look of highlighted hair, but knows she won’t be back regularly for touch ups, this is the answer! I’ve done it for a few of my clients and have only gotten positive reviews from it.
You have to make the highlights thin, as it won’t work for chunky. And it won’t work if they are looking to have a ton of highlights either. It’s only for a soft look. The trick is to not do every foil right at the roots. Basically the point is to not make it noticeable when the roots start growing it. Therefore, what I do is three different foils. The first one is at the root, The second one is about 3 inches from the root, and the third one is somewhere between the first and second. Then I keep alternating the pattern. The result is perfect and your client will be very happy to NOT have to see you again in the usual 4 weeks
Yippie! We get an extra hour of sleep this weekend!! I look forward to this every year for that simple reason. It really does your body good to have that extra hour. You wake up feeling super refreshed. Think of how this is going to make those dark circles from lack of sleep disappear! Sigh-what a wonderful thing. Only down side is the next time the clocks change, we will be losing an hour. But, let’s take it one day at a time. If you find yourself waking up early because of your inner clock being off, use that time to pamper yourself a little more. Take a longer shower, give yourself a DIY facial, paint your nails, maybe take the time to blow your hair out real nice before work for a change. Time is a precious thing. Use it wisely!
Yesterday marked the 29th birthday of the infamous Nicki Minaj. The young rapper/singer has never fallen short of impressing us with her style, so please enjoy this collage of photos of all the unique looks she has inspired us with!

Well it’s the day before Christmas Eve, but this will be my last post until Monday. I wish for all my fans to have a wonderful holiday (no matter what you celebrate!). Take advantage of your time spent with loved ones and cherish the gifts you receive as I am sure they were given with love.
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday and this year will be even more special. This year I get to spend it along side my Fiance <3

First I have to apologize to all who cannot view Flash, but this video was too good not to post! If you cannot view it and would like to, you can find it here ‘Hold The Hair’.
I’ve worked a lot of weddings and I have been lucky enough to not have a Bridezilla *knock on wood*. This girl is crazy….super crazy! It seems that none of her bridesmaids even want to give her the time of day and I don’t blame them! I’d love to high five the girl who put pizza sauce in her hair!
I would just like to say that no wedding should be so stressful that you act like this. When planning your wedding, try not to lose sight of what a wedding is all about….a celebration of your love for each other. If you feel like you are becoming a bridezilla, take a step back and breath!!
Did you even know there was such a thing? I was always under the impression that it did not exist. Boy was I proven wrong! Florence Colgate, an 18 year old student from England has been graced with the title “Britain’s Most Beautiful Face.”
What makes up the perfect face? It’s all based on symmetry. To be “perfect” there must be a certain ratio between eyes, nose, mouth, and forehead. They need to be in perfect symmetry and completely flawless in order for it to be perfect. The greeks had a formula:
-the distance from the eyes to the mouth should be one third of the face
The competition only took natural beauties….which means, you could not have had plastic surgery, and all contestants were judged wearing no make-up. There were over 8,000 contestants and Colgate was the winner!
She now plans to pursue a modeling career. I don’t blame her!
