Salon Sovay Color & Cut for extremely thick, coarse hair.
Here’s a quick look at blonde highlights and cut for long, fine hair.
Client desired more volume up top with lots of layers. She felt her previous cut had no volume up top with all the volume on the bottom - like a Christmas tree🎄. We cut very short SOFT layers on the crown and connected layers to the bottom, face framed layers beginning at her ear to flatter her heart shaped face. We did not address her color as the client did this at home herself. We did, however, use purple shampoo/conditioner, and a leave in purple product to tone her existing color. We also reviewed an easy at home deep conditioner for her to use in order to rehab those ends as she wanted to explore professional color / some highlights- in her future!
It’s always a nice surprise when you check the mail and you have a cute card waiting for you! Notes like these remind us (aesthetic providers) why we love our job so much. Thank you, Austin, and all of our clients! We’re so lucky to serve our community and put smiles on faces.
We just completed a combination of skinny foil packets and hand painted highlights with a baby bump of her base to give her a fresh, sun kissed look. Our client also requested heavier “curtain” bangs up front, tons of heavy face frame layers, tiny/ soft shorter layers up top (for volume purposes), and longer / connected layers throughout.
Lots of clients coming in for brown balayage with sun kissed tips of hair reminiscent of that gorgeous naturally occurring surfer hair in the salt and sun. This client has very thick hair so we minimized some of the unnecessary bulk by texturizing and thinning it and finishing it off with some connected layers for some sizzle and fun. 👌
Brown Balayage highlights look amazing when you rock volume, curls, or waves in your perfectly layered haircut at Salon Sovay. 👌
Summer blonde highlights and lots of layers for a glamorous look when wearing hair down or a cute ponytail.
Here’s an example of just what a difference a haircut can make! This new client came in requesting a haircut with lots of layers. She wanted volume up top, cascading/connected layers, not too much length off the bottom. The client’s previous color work was a bit warm so we did use a Purple conditioning mask to help temporarily tone the preexisting highlights which worked very well.
Face framed, layered haircut with an emphasis on volume up top. It’s tricky when cutting fine, shorter layers into an overall long layered haircut. Here we have a few shorter layers (soft top layer) carefully cut into her shortest hard layer located on the very top of her haircut which results in extreme volume. A “soft layer” can be cut by sliding the scissors or using blending/texturizing scissors and a “hard layer” is commonly cut woth a long bladed scissor ensuring and even line. All the layers in this cut are connected which means it can air dry very well and still look pretty nice with minimal effort. 👌💃
Here’s a quick peak at one of our client’s finished long layered, highlighted, and styled blowout at Salon Sovay.

Pictured is a glamorous ash blonde and silver ombré hair color and cut.
Inspired by the perfect palette of cool winter tones, Salon Sovay stylist ~ Kelly Magee Tate ~ creates a glamorous Ash Blonde and Silver Ombre hair color and style for her lucky client. This client's natural hair color is a level 3 with previous (grown out) golden highlights. This client desired a considerable change in both tone and color level and needed a fresh, long layered haircut for the final polished outcome. Kudos to Kelly Tate for making this transformation look easy resulting in a very happy client with beautiful hair!

11/23/2020

Kelly’s client transitioned from a 2 toned grown out summer color to this spectacular Icy Blonde just in time for chilly winter! Steps:
Her client wanted to achieve an icy rooted blonde. Session one she worked to achieve as much lightness and full saturation on the ends as possible. Kelly used the Air Touch method to fully saturate her ends while maintaining a blended, soft, natural transition from root to tip. Once in, Kelly ran into some old color that would not lift high enough, so she was glazed with a nice wheaty beige to balance out the warmth. Kelly then cut over 7 inches off and gave her a sassy layered lob.

Session two... Kelly went in and did a 3D balayage to brighten over all, and tipped out the remaining ends. She was color melted after to achieve this nice Icy Rooted Blonde. Voila - from dull and brassy brunette to a fun, flirty ice princess. 💁🏼‍♀️

Here’s a pretty babylight (think skinny/tiny highlights that look like the sun created them) and long layered haircut by Salon Sovay Master Colorist and Stylist, Christy Claborn, recently. This cut and color reminds me we’re still creating beauty in Austin salons in this challenging year - it’s a bright, sunny reflection of gorgeous hair art and I like it! Thank you, Christy, keep up your amazing work. 🙏💛

The gorgeous before and after artwork came from our very own Salon Sovay balayage extraordinaire, Kelly Magee Tate. First, we have a caramel balayage painted over a rich chocolate base to create the perfect Victoria Secret sun-kissed vibe. Second, artfully blended and voluminous layers result in a luscious waterfall of waves. Ready for a photo shoot now. 💃

...and we’re back!

While all of our technicians/stylists at Salon Sovay are practicing the best preventive measures with safety in mind while conducting services, it's important to thank you ~ our Austin community ~ for the many texts/emails letting us know how much you missed us during the shelter in place. I know I can speak on behalf of our entire salon family in saying we missed you, too! I'm including some texts from clients while the shelter in place was in effect, some pictures of our technicians demonstrating some of their safety preparedness, and sweet messages we received this week from clients who were happy to be the recipient of our services now that we are back to conducting (safe) services. 🙏😷👩‍🔬💛

I wanted to share some pictures from my Salon Sovay virtual color tutorial appointment this morning. My client, , and I shared a productive and fun meeting in which I personally (thank you zoom) instruct and guide her through the hair coloring process from our respective homes. This virtual meeting was the result of a very polite nudge from Rebecca in which she texted me saying she "couldn't handle her roots anymore...” and I think a bunch of us can relate! A big shout out and thank you to Rebecca for your amazing patience as I am technically challenged. That said, nothing inspires me more than making a client look and feel more beautiful...so off to zoom I went...we did some practice runs first...just to figure out how to navigate the website, lighting, etc. I look forward to seeing Rebecca and her hair face to face one day but this is a wonderful alternative in the interim until this quarantine order is lifted. Peace, pretty hair, uplifted spirits and smiles from Austin, Texas. 💛🙌

It's finally warm outside and you know what that means? It's time to have fun in the sun and shed that winter coat! Tess Rodriguez, aesthetician at Salon Sovay next door, knows everything you ever wanted to know about waxing. Whether you've been waxing for years or you're thinking about getting waxed for the first time, Tess Rodriguez is the "go-to" gal for all things wax :)

In fact, Tess just received the following glowing Google review from one of her many, loyal clients:

Skin by Tess is the only waxer in town worth seeing. She's super low key and humble but she's the Chronicle's best waxer officially, as well as the waxer to the stars when they are in town. I lover her and trust her completely. She is 98% in charge or my brow game, afterall. I see her every 4wks for bikini and eyebrows and it is painless and even fun bc she is so great to visit with. ~ Elizabeth M.

Salon Sovay stylist, Kelly Magee, demonstrates her amazing color skills on our very own nail technician, Jenny. Jenny's natural color is Level 2/ Level 3 (think darkest brown) and Kelly successfully lighten her hair color gradually resulting in this masterpiece. Kelly used a full foil highlight technique utilizing the balayage coloring process on the remaining hair that was not captured in foil. In other words...full highlight and a balayage to boot. She finished with a color melt of Level 6V at the new growth to 2 inches down for added depth; Level 8 Silver Metallic/Level 8V to mid shaft of hair; Level 10 Silver Metallic/10 Platinum for icy blonde melt on ends of hair. Piece of cake, right? For any questions on color or general hair services with stylist Kelly Magee, feel free to text her direct at (479)422-8942.

It may be winter and chilly out there in Austin, Texas but we can keep it sunny inside the hair salon. Pictured are fresh surfer highlights and long layers for my client today. She's getting a head start into spring with a bump in her base (slight lifting of her natural overall color) and soft/thin highlights where the sun would naturally lift her hair. She likes her hair long...really long...so we just snipped off about 1.5 inches on the ends and layered throughout to keep her hair healthy and my client happy.

Lash Extraordinaire, Tess @ Salon Sovay next door, demonstrates how talented she is with meticulous attention to detail when it comes to optimizing one’s natural lash beauty. These are not lash extensions but, rather, the client’s natural lashes which are permed at the root to ends then tinted deep black. The result = the prettiest, thickest, darkest, perfectly upward/curled lashes for her client. These lashes are permed with a tiny perm rod and colored dark black. Results last 1 - 3 months.

Here's another client ready for the warm summer months, swimming, beach, and high heat temperatures...not a problem when you have a humidity resistant, eye opening lash perm and lash tint (the tint makes the lashes thicker, too)!

Before/During/After -Eyelash perm with Sovay Reeder at Salon Sovay. This result creates a stronger curl pattern than a lash lift (we offer both services). This client had lashes that pointed downward and slightly impaired her vision. In addition, her course, straight lashes did NOT respond to any lash curler technique and she had exhausted her options including lash extensions which she felt were thinning her lashes long term. This lash perm will last approximately 1 - 3 months and is humidity resistant. A lash perm will NOT thin your lashes long term and needs little to no maintenance during the 1 to 3 months, however, like many aesthetic services...there are pros and cons with all lash enhancement options. For more information, feel free to consult with our expert lash consultants, Tess Rodriguez @ Salon Sovay next door or Jenny Luu @ Salon Sovay.
