JACALYN 💜Color correction on this Beauty. Thanks for the laughter and good conversations. It was great meeting you! And Shout out to @krnkrns and @queen_sku for popping in for a suprise visit with coffee for us! You guys always be spoiling me with snacks everytime you come in😘

Teasylights with @olaplex using my @cooboard and toned with @wellahair toned with 9/16,9/3 ,7/86


JULIE✨ Birthday hair for this GEM and just loved how it looked straight! this is how my clients look when I tell them to smile with their eyes 👀 😂 works everytime to get them to relax and smile when I am taking pictures of them.

Can this pandemic be over already so I can see all of my clients beautiful faces? When new clients take a selfie after they leave the salon and tag me, im like awww you’re so cute! Then I’m thinking, wow I don’t even know what my clients full face looks like. Crazy times we are in. Oh, and I miss hugs too. Miss hugging friends and family. Who can relate? Actually scratch that. I think at this point everyone can relate. On the flip side... glad everyone is wearing masks 😷 and staying safe!


Only 3 or so more weeks until FALL! 🍂🍁 And yes I have been counting... haven’t you? It’s my favorite season! The leaves, the crisp air, the start fo the holiday season. With that being said... when you come in don’t forget to prebook your next appointment and through the holidays! My Sundays are BOOKED through September and October is almost filled as well, I only have a few weekday openings left. You can book through my website online or email me if you aren’t sure what to book. All of the contact info is on my website. Can’t wait to see to see all of you soon!


It’s this Babes Birthday today! Go wish her a Happy Birthday and check out her IG page @createdbybellan PLUS she just opened up her Etsy shop for designing custom stickers. DM her for inquiries! 🎉


ANNIE• Dimension for Days... blonde tends to pop more when you have depth. Not to mention it’s has such a nice grow out! One of the ways to keep your blonde bright and prevent it from getting brassy is of course purple shampoo, but don’t overdo it. A lot of my clients didn’t know that purple shampoo can be drying on the hair. I usually tell them once every 2 weeks or whenever they feel like their color is starting to fade(no need to use it everytime you shampoo) .

When I lighten the hair I try to get it past the orange shade and to a nice pale yellow 🍌so that it doesn’t fade brassy.

If you feel like your toner washes out too fast one fo the reasons could be the shampoo that you are using (use only salon professional products). Also i cannot stress enough 🙅🏻‍♀️DO NOT buy it from TJ MAXX or AMAZON it doesn’t come directly fromthe distributor so you don’t know the quality of it or if it is expired.

Lastly it could just be your shower head water. consider getting a shower head filter 🚿.


✨✨Opened up my online booking! Hoping this will free up some of my time trying to book clients myself. For 𝘕𝘦𝘸 𝘊𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 head to my webpage and go to the ‘𝘕𝘦𝘸 𝘎𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘵 ‘ section. On the bottom of the page you will see the new client color consultation form that will be needed to be filled out and then right below is the book now button to book an appointment. For 𝘌𝘹𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘊𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 you can book through there or through the ‘𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘤𝘵 ‘ tab on my webpage where it also has a box for any questions you may have. ✨✨


Beigy Beachy Waves for PAULA. Speaking of beach... for all of you that have gotten your hair done and are going to the pool and the ocean 🌊 please put some leave in product or conditioner in your hair before you go in!

I like @olaplex number 3 Or the @kevin.murphy leave in repair. We have it stocked in the salon so Make sure to get it at your next apppintment or stop by anytime and pick one up! Also, instead of twisting it up in a bun where the ends can get all crispy when you take it out, try putting it in braids! It’s cute and gives your hair a beachy 🏖look when you take it out ☺️

comment below if you want me to post more about hair maitenance!


Before and after on Antonette. So now that everyone is required to wear masks, When I’m taking the after pictures of everyone’s hair I tell them to smile with their eyes. I got that from America’s Top model 😂. Since you can’t see anything but the eyes, gotta get creative so they don’t look like they are just staring into space when I take pictures. Sometimes I’ll smile at people and forget that they can’t see it because I have a mask on.. 😅 who else does this?!


JENN• Straight and Blonde. Sometimes the hair looks so good straight I don’t want to curl it. But also, I like my clients to know their hair will look good straight as well and not just curled. Because let’s be honest. Who has the time to curl their hair all the time?!


AMBER• another look! It was nighttime but the time we finished and difficult to get some good lighting so had to move around the salon to see which area had the best lighting. Thanks girl for being so patient while I took pictures of your hair straight and curly and moved you around the salon! 😅


Straight vs Curly on AMBER 💁🏼‍♀️


TRUC* another one in my Brunette series. It’s a vibe. Love how rich the darker colors are. It’s a change once in awhile from the blonde 🍫🌰


SASHA• literally love this shade of brown! I’ve been into using more @redken shades EQ as my Toners lately but used all @wellahair color touch for this one! The thingy that i do to get to a nice cool brunette is to lift hair past the orange and to a nice yellow. So when it fades it won’t fade brassy!


JEAN•|| love how you can use the same shade of blonde on different people and it could look different spending on how much or how little you foil and the placement of the foils. Obsessed with this shade of blonde! I have been having so much fun doing makeovers on my clients, and giving their hair some much needed TLC! 💖💁🏼‍♀️


SUSAN ✨ where do I start with her lol she’s like a ray of sunshine. Everytime she comes, she has me laughing the whole appointment. Actually, she has the whole salon laughing.. 😂 It was so good to see her literally brightens up my day! ☀️
—> swipe does before!


MAE• Another mommy makeover! LOVE the shorter do on her. She was hesitant for the change but I knew it would look good. Let’s be honest, moms work so hard and they definitely need some pampering after being home with their husband and kids during quarantine. Working, home schooling, being a mom/wife, it can be mentally and emotionally exhausting! So I’m always happy when I get the chance to make them feel good when they are in my chair. It’s also so nice to just catch up with everyone and hear about how they have been doing. 💖


HELEN 💕 so happy to not only get my hands in her hair and give her a little mommy makeover, but got to catch up with a friend. I haven’t gotten to see her in person since pre pandemic It was so niceI almost didn’t want the appt to end! So crazy how there are so many small things we took for granted like just meeting up with a friend In persona. But, so happy I got to see her and her son Lucas. I think what I’ve missed even more is getting to visit my friends kids. 🧒🏻👧🏻 Also, we usually don’t allow you to bring your kids or anyone to your appt. But he was in there really quick for a cut. I am loving everything about her new look! We chopped off some Length and took out ALOT of the weight in her hair. Gave her some wispy bangs and transitioned her into this “mushroom brown” color.


JULIANNE• Major hair makeover! I love the shorter cut on her. I’ve been doing so many shorter cuts lately and it’s giving me all the summer vibes! ☀️*swipe for the before!


CLAUDIA☀️ We decided to go lighter this time and keep her hair longer. We balayaged her and did hairline babylights around her part line. Swipe to see her first session with me! I honestly love both the shorter blunt cut and the longer lob look on her but living for this blonde! It’s been so nice catching up with my clients these past couple of weeks. So interesting to hear what everyone did while In quarantine and what new hobbies they picked up. We started talking about plants (because we have so many in the salon) and I know nothing about plants. My coworker @tanya.takohairstudio is plant mama, they started talking about their plant babies and now they have become plant buddies! I thought it was the cutest thing. She found her plant people while at the salon getting her hair done! 🌿🎋🌵


You know it’s time to get some sh*t done when you got that hair up in a ponytail. Either that or its hair wash day and you too lazy and trying to stretch it a extra day so it’s in a ponytail. How many of you women can relate? Instead of having it up try putting some dry shampoo in your hair. I like to do this the day I wash my hair after I wash and dry it when it’s freshly clean. This helps it from getting oily too fast and adds a bit of texture and volume. You can also accessorize your ponytail with cute scrunchies or hair clips when you are trying to go a extra day. Be creative, the possibilities are endless!

AMY• lived in locks are my favorite. Soft subtle and low maintenance


SARAH• left picture was taken by a iPhone and right was taken by a Nikon camera. Can you tell the difference? It’s slight... right his a little more true to how it looks in person. Her natural color isn’t as dark so you can see the lighter pieces towards her roots area more and her blonde is slightly cooler as well. The picture on the left was with my iPhone. I had to move around to different areas in the salon to find the best lighting so it could reflect how it looked on person. When I take pictures at night it’s little bit more tricky because there is no natural light shining in. Some areas her hair looked warmer even though it was super ashy in person. We have awesome lighting in the salon so this is just another PSA that hair color looks different in different lighting and time of day.


LAURA🤍 That blend & That ashy goodness! Sometimes I like to curl the hair and sometimes I like to keep it straight. Most of the time my clients don’t curl their hair on a daily basis so I like to show them how it looks straight. It was my first time doing her hair but we had lots in common to talk about! I did a partial balayage and hairline babylights for this look.


CHRISTINA•| not All balayage needs to be blonde! Love this natural lived in look on her. Just needed a little something something to brighten her up. Getting her hair wedding ready! It was so much fun catching up and I think we literally talked the whole appointment. Every appointment is like a therapy session for the both of us and i look forward to it. Love her passion for the work that she does for high risk kids. She’s a Gem 💎


JENNIFER 🌼 sometimes i just love a good hair transformation. Swipe to see the before. It’s crazy that all of my pictures now everyone will have masks on... how times have changed. Big thank you to my clients who have made the transition back stress free by following all the guidelines to keep everyone safe and being super understanding. 💜


FiRST WEEK back at work is over! The first day I was hyped with so much energy, then the rest of the week slowly I’ve been getting more tired and and harder to wake up in the morning! Nonetheless, feels good to be back. One of my faves from this week. Bronde for LISA ✨ . Forgot to take a before picture, but touched up her roots, added lowlights to break up her previous blonde, and balayaged, to brighten some of her brassy pieces.


Do you remember how it felt like the night before the first day of school? Excited and Nervous, butterflies in your stomach. That’s how I felt the night before going back to work.

Yesterday was my first day back and it felt so good to reconnect with clients and get my hands in some hair! I honestly didn’t know how much I missed it until I was back at work. Don’t get me wrong I did love quarantine as well. Being able to have no plans and just slow down. I felt like a kid on summer vacation, I slept as late as I want and woke up whenever I wanted to. Binged on every single Netflix show, and lots of time home together with my husband( I’m going to miss our daily walks outside) . But 2.5/3 months were enough for me.

I’m glad to be back and excited to catch up with everyone. Can’t wait to see all of you in my chair!


Black Lives Matter


While you are home with nothing to do. Instead of just Netflix and chill, you can Netflix, chill while deep conditioning! Give your hair some TLC! My favorite masque right now is the @joico defy damage hair mask. Make sure you hair is towel dried and leave it in for AT LEAST 10 minutes then brush it through with a @thewetbrush or paddle brush. I do that so it is evenly distributed though the hair. Comment below and let me know which is your favorite hair mask! 🧖🏻‍♀️


JUDITH ✨ Throwback to one of the last colors I did before quarantine. She is the sweetest soul of a person. Although I have loved having all this time off, I am also grateful that the governor has extended businesses openings. Yes, it does sucks and I know some people are struggling but nothing can replace your health. If it’s not safe to hug your loved ones (siblings, parents, grandparents, nieces, nephews) it’s not safe to open up. Don’t get me wrong, I am as eager as anyone to get back to work, but us as stylists are literally risking our lives by going in to work. That being said, I am glad that we are giving time for the numbers to drop a little. I am so grateful for the support I get from my fellow stylist friends, who are going through the same thing and for my amazing clients who have been so understanding and patient through all of this. Even though going back to work will give me so much anxiety because the virus will still be present, I truly can’t wait to see all of you back in my chair! I’ve missed everyone! ❤️


For all of you that don’t know I have changed locations! Not to worry! I will still be in Fairfax! You can find the address in my Bio. Can’t wait to see you all there! Quite a few of you have been messaging me on when I will be back at the salon. As of right now, it will be the first week of June. I will be reaching out soon to reschedule your appointments starting with the clients that already had appointments previously booked. Also, due to the fact that the virus is still circulating, there will be new protocols implemented for when you arrive for your appointment.
🚘First, please text me when you arrive and wait in your car. I will text back on when it is safe for you to come in after I have had time to disinfect my area and my previous client has left.
🌡 when you enter the Salon I will be taking your temperature with a infrared forehand thermometer
😷 Please arrive with a mask on. Also, be aware that it may get color on it or get wet. So you might want to bring a extra one. I will have one on as well for the duration of your appointment.
💦 I will ask you to wash your hands before we begin the appointment and will have sanitizer at my station as well.
🙅🏻‍♀️ Do not have ANYONE including children accompany you to your appointment, Unless they have an appointment with me as well. Bring only what you need and limit on Our waiting area will temporarily not be available for use.
I know it’s a lot but this is for the safety of me, you, and everyone that steps into the salon. I want it to be as safe as possible for when you come in for your appointment with me. This won’t be forever so please bear with me. Thank you for all of your patience and understanding during this difficult time! ❤️


This week has been tough for me. I’ve been feeling so much anxiety over a numerous of different things. 😓 I’m sure so many of you are going through and dealing with the same things and I am right there with you! But, what fills me with joy lately is catching up and messaging with my clients back and forth. Giving advice on their hair and how to maintain their color during this time. 💆🏻‍♀️Glad I can still be of some use to you all even though I can’t see you in the salon right now. I truly miss seeing you all and catching up with you in my chair. 😘I keep thinking and saying I can’t wait until things goes back to normal but I think we are going to come out of this better than normal. Come out of this more appreciative of things that we took for granted before this Pandemic 🦠, more appreciative of getting to meet up with friend and not have to be 6ft apart, going to grocery stores 🛒and have everything fully stocked while at the same time not scared that you will catch the virus just being in near proximity with another person. I also have a new level of appreciation for my clients. You all have been so supportive and understanding and I couldn’t be more grateful. 🙏🏼 For those of you that have put down a deposit for your appointment when I open up, to sending extra just because and out of the kindness of your heart 💜, even just texting to check in on how I am doing not being able to work right now. It is so appreciated and have filled me with so much joy 🤗 I am trying to view all of this as a blessing in disguise. As much as the uncertainty scares me I am doing my best to find the positivity in this!. 💪🏼 stay strong everyone!
