Happy Saturday everyone! Just a friendly reminder to book your fall hair appointments ASAP. I am getting surgery on September 20th and I’ll be recovering at home for about a week, so grab those last minute spots while they’re still available 😄

08/19/2021

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

1. I have 4 spots available for cuts or color before I leave on vacation from August 25th to the 30th grab them while you still can 😋

2. PLEASE BOOK YOUR FALL/HOLIDAY APPOINTMENTS ASAP. It’s going to be a very busy season for us mobile folks so spots will be limited! Even if you have a change of plans and need to move your appointment we will be more willing to accommodate you if you took the time to make your appointment in advance. It’s nothing personal, we just expect our clients to be just as considerate for our time as we are for theirs ♥️

Use the link in my bio to book your appointment so you can make sure that you end this crazy year feeling even more beautiful by taking care of the crown you never take off ✨

Grey blending > Grey coverage

If you ever plan on letting your grey show later in life, do yourself a favor and ask for grey blending. It’ll make the transition to being 100% natural so much easier!

To have consistent beautiful hair, is to make a hair plan with your stylist and stick with it. Disregarding the future of your hair can make your life a nightmare if you don’t want to color your hair for the rest of your life.
In my opinion, the stigma behind natural grey hair is toxic. Learn to love your greys! Work with what you got. Any type of hair can look beautiful if you take care of it.
Let’s try to embrace our natural selves this year and throw away these impossible beauty standards. Hair and makeup should be for fun, not a necessity.

The key to beauty is confidence 😋

Let’s talk greys ✨

As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more transparent color — like gray, silver, or white — as it grows.

That being said, you can start greying at a young age. This is called premature greying.

Some lifestyle causes of premature greying are smoking, faulty diet, stress and unhealthy hair care methods. Other grey hair reasons are Vitamin B12 deficiency, hormonal imbalance and early menopause.

Something to consider if your hair turns grey before the age of 20, is that it might be best for you to go see a doctor to make sure this is not because of some serious underlying health issues.

Whatever the reason behind your greys are, your stylist has your back! Ask questions before deciding which service you should get. A lot of people tend to immediately ask for permanent color which isn’t always what you need. Permanent color can be difficult to lift out of the hair, so if you are someone that likes to change your hair color often, let your stylist know! Or you might end up having a difficult time achieving the color that you desire later down the road.

Start this year on the right path for your hair and trust your stylist! We’re here to help you feel your best 😊

Class Action Claims TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo Causes Hair Loss, Scalp Irritation

PLEASE STOP TRUSTING DRUG STORE BRANDS 🤦🏻‍♀️

Or don’t.... and take your chances with loosing your hair 🤷🏻‍♀️

classaction.org A class action alleges TRESemmé Keratin Smooth shampoos can cause significant hair loss and scalp irritation and may contain a "well-known human carcinogen."

12/16/2020

Think about it: Your scalp is skin too, and it’s actually an extension of your face. Just like the rest of your skin, your scalp also needs regular exfoliating. Unfortunately, regular buildup of oil, dead skin cells, and leftover product can leave your scalp overloaded and less than healthy.

SPECIALLY if you’re using drug store products that tend to have more silicones than more professional grade products.

Once or twice a month, use an exfoliating scalp treatment to give your scalp a good scrub.

My favorite is ’s SOLU Sea Salt Scrub Cleanser! Then following with their Renaissance Circle Mask to add some hydration back into my strands 😋

Do you need to touch up your color for the holidays but are too nervous to see a stylist in person because of COVID?

DO NOT WORRY BECAUSE WE HAVE YOU COVERED 😄

You can now book a virtual color appointment with me!

What it includes:
-Professional custom color kit delivered directly to your doorstep.
-Video appointment with me!

✨How it works ✨
1. Go to our online booking portal (link in bio)
2. Select one of two:
🔘Custom color drop off + How to video.
OR
🔘Custom color drop off + How to video + $30 donation to
3. Once you’ve selected your service, select the time slot that is the most convenient for you to have a FaceTime/zoom appointment with me so I can virtually walk you through coloring your hair.
4. Once booked, I will be reaching out to you so we can discuss what kind of color will work best to hold you off until you are able to book an in person color appointment!

DISCLAIMER: This service is only meant to help our clients refresh their previously colored hair during the pandemic. This is not meant for you to completely change up your color on your own. I recommend this service mostly for anyone that needs their roots done/ color refresh/ toning. I DO NOT CONDONE DOING YOUR OWN COLOR AT HOME WITHOUT THE GUIDANCE OF A PROFESSIONAL NOR ENCOURAGE THE USE OF ANY NON PROFESSIONAL GRADE COLOR (That includes buying “professional” color online without a license. SPECIALLY from Amazon)
You can seriously mess up your hair by attempting to go the cheaper route and using DIY color. I promise you this service will be significantly cheaper than the price of getting a color correction to fix whatever you attempted to do at home without professional guidance.

Make yourself or someone you love feel good about their hair this holiday season with this service ♥️
