There is one age-old remedy that is said to provide a solution and (surprise!) it’s found in your bathroom drawers: castor oil! Years ago it was recommended to me by my eyebrow lady as a way to help grow them out, so I decided to do a little research.

The texture of your hair is perhaps the most important factor to your hair looking gorgeous. If you have dry hair (either naturally or because of style/color damage) you more than likely understand how difficult it can be to style. One of my main principles as a Master Hair Colorist is to treat hair with the tender love and care it requires to maintain its moisture and, therefore, its vitality. However, this care isn’t something you should focus on only when you are getting your color; In fact, you should make sure that your every day hair care routine...

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...

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.
