I'm smiling big, celebrating big, and loving life as I celebrate my second anniversary at Lush and Lather and I want to share with you the reasons I'm feeling so blessed.

1. I truly feel that I have the best clients on the planet. You all keep me laughing through the week and feeling so ultra loved every single day.

2. I get to wake up every day to pursue my passion. Formulating color and creating hair extension makeovers truly fill my soul, and to be able to do that each and every day makes me the luckiest woman in the world.

3. Nothing makes me happier than helping to make my guests feel more beautiful and ultra confident and I've been able to share some incredible moments with so many of you.

3. I absolutely have the best coworkers on the planet.

4. I've traveled across the country no less than 6 times in the past two years to learn from the best and to keep my skills sharp and I can say whole heartedly that I've never felt more confident in my abilities.

So Cheers to you all! thank you for making these past two years as beautiful as they have been and I look forward to many more 🙂
Can I let you in on a little secret?

Your home care between appointments is actually more important than your time spent with me in the salon. If you're not caring for your hair properly for those 8-12 weeks between visits, there is only so much damage control I can do in the salon.

When you compare that to the 2-4 hours you spend with me in the salon every few months, you can see why what you do at home is crucial.

Want to go blonder?

Check out 9 vital products for home care that every blonde needs:

⭐️ 2 different Shampoos: Eleven Australia Hydrate My Hair + Keep My Colour Blonde are the BEST. First hydrates and repairs dry and damaged hair, the second when left on for 3-5 minutes helps keep those brassy tones at bay.

⭐️2 different Conditioners: Keep My Color Blonde Treatment + 3 Minute Repair Mask. This stuff gives your hair alllll the strength and an extra boost of moisture.

⭐️Olaplex No. 3: Keep those bonds strong at home between services

⭐️Miracle Hair Treatment: It really is a Miracle ya'll. With 11 benefits, you get a little bit of everything in this baby.

⭐️Glaze Service (gloss, toner, etc): At the half way point between your lightening service- get a glaze refresh service. It keeps your tone on point as well as helping to close down that cuticle.

⭐️Dry Shampoo: Give Me Clean (smells like watermelon😍🍉) Washing your hair too much will dry it out- use dry shampoo to extend the life of your blowout.

⭐️Hair oil: Smooth & Shine Serum. The actual molecule is smaller than most oils and is delivered further into the hair versus sitting on the outside of the hair strand.

So we all know I’m a stylist here now, but do you know how I actually got here?

I didn’t always want to be a hairstylist. I wanted to do makeup and had zero interested in work in a salon doing hair. I actually had a thriving career doing advertising, editorial, and bridal makeup in southern California.

When I met me husband, he was in the Marines. As lots of us here in Colorado Springs know, that means moving a lot, and sometimes places you wouldn’t choose to go.

When we got married I realized I needed to shift gears. As fun as doing makeup was, I knew it wasn’t going to be a full time career in oh, idk, Okinawa Japan?

So I went to cosmetology school, got my license, and we got orders to move across the globe.

That’s right, I had literally zero time to get my feet wet, assist, or work alongside other stylists after I graduated school.


I started my own little home salon, and crossed my fingers that I could figure this hair thing out.

I spent HOURS every night watching youtube tutorials and scrolling hairstylist education groups on facebook. Like I legit would barely talk to my husband after we finished dinner til we went to bed.

I was determined to be an incredible stylist, despite my circumstances. And you know what? It paid off. And to this day I continue to attend advanced education classes all over the country to bring my clients the best.

Fast forward to today, I have found my dream salon here at Lush and Lather where the environment and team are second to none.

My journey through the industry has been a little unconventional, but it has turned out better than I could have ever imagined and you beautiful souls I get to connect with are the best part!
This wedding ... so many emotions because I remember when this beautiful young woman was a petite little blonde girl playing her violin in the grade school where I worked. She is the sister of my oldest son’s dearest and best friend, and the daughter of a precious couple with whom we share many memories. Now she’s all grown up and a gorgeous bride. We shared many a meeting over coffee going over every detail of this wedding... hashing out ideas and dreaming up plans. This weekend it finally happened and the day was gorgeous in every way. The last warm sunny day before 3 days of bitter cold and snow, the warm fall colors she chose just seemed perfect. This will be a sweet memory to say the least. Congratulations Meredith and Cody! Thank you for letting me be a part of this day. ❤️

First time coloring your hair? Or haven’t colored it in years? 💫

I’ve got you sis… that sentence is literal music to my ears.. 🙏🏻 but can I let you in a little secret?

This look was created using teasing and foils, which gave us such a fabulous lift. I chose this route because her hair was completely virgin. Meaning: no previous color at all. We lifted slowly and with a very mellow lightener. Her hair responded so well! Love when that happens the first session.

But… Let’s say you come to me with hair that hasn’t been colored in a year or two, and you’re wanting something like this picture. Although I could use foils and possibly get you here in one session—
**if you have previous color anywhere in your hair, I will more than likely not use foils your first session. This is a concept I adopted years ago..
Here’s why…. lightening out deposited color can do scary things to the overall health of your hair … especially when there’s previously lightened hair underneath of that color.. so the first session of your blonding journey will consist of vegan, mineral treatments to pull previous colors out…. Followed by hand painting.
This allows me to check on the health of the hair.
Questions I ask myself during this process:
1. How fast will it lift?
2. Will it be an even lift, or is there banding?
3. Can the hair handle more?

After this very crucial first step we will tone it down so anything hidden in the hair (like banding / harsh unnatural undertones) blends out and your not brassy in any way shape or form. Even with a slower more gentle type of lift. You do not have to be orange! But you may have to be a little less bright at first..
OK! So now I know what’s up and we have a full game plan on how we’re going to achieve the look your wanting in the healthiest manner possible. Whether that means we’re going for it next time, or taking it extremely slow… it depends on what your hair tells me it can handle!
Long story short: When a stylist says it could take more than one session… trust her…. She has your best interest in mind I assure you.
It’s about quality darling.😘😘

We’re having to pinch ourselves to make sure this is REAL, but our Lush + Lather tribe has the pleasure of welcoming an INCREDIBLE new talent on board.

Meet our newest crew member, Taylor 😍

Taylor comes to us with a passion for BOLD blondes and lived in balayage looks (.. it’s like she’ll fit right in around here, huh? 😉)

She’s thrilled to be diving into this new chapter of her career as a self employed beauty-prenuer 💋

We’d love for you to put those virtual hands together to give her a warm welcome, keep your eyes peeled to say hello at your next appointment, and head on over to give her a follow and some love! Peep her stunning work here: @looksbytaylorpaige

Welcome, Taylor! 🖤

This month, ALL month, we’re celebrating the WIN 👏 OF 👏 ALL 👏 WINS 👏 that is having @jordanmariehairstylist on our team.

Spend five minutes with Jordan, and if you haven’t cracked up at least a few times, we’d be *shocked*-

This girl is as real as they come. Her honesty goes as deep as her talent, and her obsession with her puppy babies makes us all feel like our own thousand dog pics in our albums is MORE than normal.

If you’ve had the pleasure to be loved by Jordan- than you know that there’s nothing better. The care she offers her clients, the loyalty she offers her friends- there’s just no comparison!

Jordan lane, happiest one year lush-a-versary 🖤 we are so lucky and grateful to have you on this team!

During your consultation I’ll usually ask…
“Are you wanting the tone of your blonde to be on the creamy side, or the ashy side?…… or somewhere in between, something more neutral?”

Sometimes clients have no idea how to answer. Here’s a little visual to help. (Especially for my brunettes. These are feasible expectations for your tone.)

Picture 1: she answered more ashy but still natural… so I went with a neutral violet base.

Picture 2: she wanted low maintenance.. for it to last with her warm undertones we went with a creamy golden tone.
