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 Schwarzkpof Professional Blonde Me. Blonde Me can lift up to 9 levels, and does so all the while taking care of the hair.

During winter time, most of our clients like to wear a darker color - even blondes out there may wish to deepen their color, and it’s certainly preferable. It’s just more of a natural appearance to have brighter color when it’s really sunny outside during the warmer months, and a richer, deeper tone when it’s gets colder. Often a reddish tone is a lovely choice to add into color during winter time – again, both to blondes or to light brunettes – if the skin tone can carry it.

When I arrived at the Oribe Backstage: On Location event at Siren Studios in Hollywood, it was in my usual capacity as assistant editor of Beauty Launchpad. But I left feeling like a rock star, thanks to a surprising turn of events.

We beauty devotees adjust to the seasons whenever the time comes—it's one of the joys of our industry, and it allows for that much-needed spice of life, variety. And as beauty insiders who keep our fingers on the pulse of current trends, we love our tonal shifts. Summer means bright, hot, neon, POW! And winter? Deep, cool, neutral, jewel tones and an overall sense of luxury. Seche's winter collection of polishes takes its cues from this luxe tradition, conveying the title "Warm and Cozy" with chestnuts-roasting, sweater-wearing, latté-loving flair.

I think we can all agree that not everyone should be granted the First Amendment Right. I know, I know, that would be considered “unconstitutional.” Freedom of Speech is great, unless you have a disgruntled client that goes online and writes a review that is a complete lie. Has this happened to you? Because it has happened to me, more than once, and each time it made me feel like a complete failure. I have had an employee that I fired go online and pose as an unhappy client and write a horribly untrue review. Lie.
