Hair Myths that Everyone Believes… But They Aren’t True!

What do these two things have in common: (1) If you have a shot of whatever you were drinking the night before, it will cure your hangover and (2) chocolate causes pimples? If you guessed that both of these statements were myths, old wives tales, if you will- then you are right! Myths are widely circulated ideas that are taken as fact, but they aren’t true. There is no shortage of myths for the hair industry, below are three of the most common ones. Read on and see if you’ve been believing this faulty information for as long as...

City Vibes Through Hair Color

Posted by on July 7, 2016 in Blog, Blonde, Brunette, Creative, Education Blog | 0 comments

As many of you know, I do a lot of traveling; in my opinion, traveling is the best education that you can give yourself, and it is quite possibly the only thing you pay for that actually makes you wealthier. I travel a lot for my work as a Master Hair Colorist and try to get away as much as I can when I can take a rare vacation. One of my favorite things about my travels is that each city- with it’s beauty, culture, and nuance- inspires my work. Every single city has a distinct vibe and, being...

One of my absolute favorite holidays is the Fourth of July- possible do to my love of fireworks, the beach, and hot weather.

I’ve had some pretty memorable Fourth of July’s throughout the years, and throughout time have truly come to understand my favorite ways to celebrate. Below is a list of my top ways to celebrate the Fourth: Personal Spa Day: At times, I love spending my holidays in sweet solitude. This is probably due to the fact that...

The Perfect Blow-dry

There are very few things in this life that can be taken as indisputable fact, but there is one thing that we all know cannot be questioned: There’s nothing quite like a great blow-out to make you feel like a million bucks. Perhaps this is the reason that Dry Bar (and the countless copycats that have sprang up throughout the years) are so popular! Ever wonder how it is that they seem to have the Art of the Blow-dry down to a tee? How they make it look so easy? If you’ve ever wished that you could have a...

An element that has a profound effect on hair health, appearance, and overall behavior is the weather. The winters cold, for example, doesn’t just make you feel cold, but it also has the tendency to create drier and duller results for your skin and hair. While it doesn’t have the drying effects of winter, the summer heat can be equally frustrating. During summer our hair tends to get oilier faster, can fall victim to humidity, and the sun can seriously damage your hair if you aren’t careful to protect it (a leave-in with SPF or a chic hat are...

Curly Hair Hack: How to Reduce Styling Time

Curly Hair Hack: How to Reduce Styling Time

Posted by on May 31, 2016 in Blog, Blonde, Brunette, Creative, Education Blog | 0 comments

Today’s tips are useful for us all, but they are especially life-changing for the girls with the curls (I promise that was my last attempt at rhyming in this article). Anybody will tell you that curls are absolutely beautiful, buoyant, vibrant and just plain fun, that is anybody will tell you this as long as they don’t have curly hair. I think my curly-haired clients are crazy for thinking the grass-is-greener on the other side, but admittedly it is quite the task to keep curls looking good if you don’t know how to effectively do so. It takes forever...

Life Hack: Exercises to Help Relax You

Life Hack: Exercises to Help Relax You

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Education, Education Blog | 0 comments

These last few weeks I’ve rediscovered the importance of relaxation for your health, well-being and beauty (it’s extremely important for your skin and hair). I think the fact that I was in Hawaii was the catalyst because even though I was there for work, a bit of rest and relaxation is embedded into Hawaiian culture and you can’t help but partake (when in Rome, as the saying goes). I noticed that throughout my time there I was feeling better than ever- more energized, happier, more productive- and I realized that it was 100% necessary to incorporate a little more...

Beach Hair, Don’t Care!

I can’t believe that summer 2016 is upon us! This year is flying by so quickly, but I can’t complain because my favorite season is officially a few short weeks away. Whatever your travel plans may be this year, I hope you spend a significant amount of time relaxing at the beach. Not only is it beautiful, but being out in nature (especially by the ocean) is a soul-gratifying experience; Dig your feet into the sand, close your eyes and simply listen to the waves, and you will automatically understand what I mean. There is, however, one inevitable downfall...

Travel Guide: Honolulu

Aloha from Honolulu! I’ve discovered a new favorite work/play destination– Hawaii! Over the last few months, I’ve been lucky enough to travel to the island two times in less than two months (and hopefully there will be many more). I know that the last thing I have to do is sell you on the benefits of going to a place that’s quite literally paradise, just the clear blue ocean and warm sand is reason enough, but I put together a travel guide for Honolulu for those of you who may be traveling there this summer. Eat: 53 by the...

Travel Guide: Chicago

Posted by on May 5, 2016 in Education, Education Blog | 0 comments

I am unbelievably lucky- I have two incredible cities that I get to call home: Los Angeles, which is my current home base, and Chicago, my native city. Making the decision to move to LA was not an easy one; As excited as I was about LA sunshine, I knew that I would miss the Windy City (and my amazing, beautiful, incredibly tight-knit family). Flash forward nearly a decade later and I find myself in the position as a Master Hair Colorist where I get to travel (and travel a lot) for work- I am on an airplane multiple times...
