2014 - it is the beginning of a new year and as the holidays come to a close, there are many newly engaged brides-to-be that will start the process of wedding planning. I have been thinking about my amazing industry and what makes for a fabulous bridal hairstyle. Most of my brides have an idea of what they want on the big day. They often think their hair "won't do this style or that look", but remember, as hair stylists, we create magic!
2014 is all about revolution; it’s about hairdressers embracing change by saying and doing things differently. This year, I’m focusing on helping stylists take back their chairs by communicating differently. Saying the same old things over and over yields the same old results, but approaching conversations in new ways with innovate new words catches attention, creates excitement and starts conversations.

When we were young our parents were forever telling us not to talk to strangers. With the advent of social networking it seems that that's all youngsters ever do these days. We’re not talking about creepy chat rooms, we’re talking about the popularity of blogging and micro-blogging, which is (maybe?) a bit more acceptable. Of late, it’s mostly Tumblr that’s got the kids excited, with news half way through 2013 that they were abandoning Facebook and, to a lesser degree, Twitter in droves in favor of the blogging platform.

We all look forward to going on vacation. But the last minute preparations can be stressful.

It's happened to all of us. Sadly, most of us end up searching the Internet like a madwoman upon arriving to our destination. But we all have our proprieties - mine just happens to be full-to-the-max lash extensions.
The holidays are my favorite time of hair! This is the season when soirées, fêtes and festive get-togethers abound. It is also the season when our guests are more inclined to ask you to mix it up a bit and create a stunning style for the company party or another fabulous party.
I love having a couple of go-to styles for the holiday season. Whether I’m at a show, behind the chair or a family member or friend asks me to do their hair, having a style I can create on the spot and do well makes life so much easier and makes the holidays shine for me.
When going from brunette to blonde, it is very important to analyze the condition of the hair. Determine if the hair is in a fragile state or healthy. This all determines the correct process and steps to take.Depending on if the hair is artificially colored or not will also determine the appropriate process.Use a very gentle bleach on the hair if previously colored. I recommend Schwarzkopf Professional Blonde Me. Blonde Me can lift up to 9 levels, and does so all the while taking care of the hair.
