Renee Taglia Picks The Best Hair Color of The 2016 Grammys

Renee Taglia Picks The Best Hair Color of The 2016 Grammys

While the Grammys may be music’s biggest night, the award show is also one of my favorites when it comes to hair! While the Globes and Oscars are also amongst my favorites, the Grammy’s offer a little more spice. From the buzz around Taylor Swift’s and Beyonce’s dresses, to the best overall hair and makeup, here are my favorites when it comes to color!   Lady Gaga’s daring apricot was one of my favorites. Her Ziggy Stardust inspired color was thoughtfully paired with a custom designed Marc Jacobs electric blue double-breasted satin coat dress and sky high platforms. If there ever were a perfect place to pay tribute to one of the world’s most loved musicians, the Grammys is it. Great job Gaga.   Gwen Stefani was stunning in a shade more buttery than we normally see her blonde. Her glam look was set in bouncy curls that Marilyn Monroe would definitely approve of! She’s obviously in love in the photos snapped of her and Blake Shelton, and her hair and dress emulated the perfect Valentine’s Day look.     Allessandra Ambrosio slayed in a plunging Versace gown. Her sleek lob was perfect in contrast with her dangly earrings, smoky eyes and pink lips. I love how the highlights make a statement yet are still natural. Way to work it Allessandra!     Well that’s another wrap on my picks for best hair color at the Grammy’s! Can’t wait for another great show; Award’s Season is just beginning!

Secrets of a Master Hair Colorist: Boar Bristle Brushes!

Secrets of a Master Hair Colorist: Boar Bristle Brushes!

Have you ever wondered how classic silver screen starlets got their glamorous hair? The likes of Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn and Rita Hayworth used boar bristle brushes, a hair secret that’s been circulation since the 1800’s! Boar bristle brushes not only naturally condition your hair, they stimulate your scalp and reduce frizz as well. The secret to using your boar bristle brush correctly is to wait a few days after washing your hair, and then brush from the root to tip. This will help distribute your natural oils all the way to your mid shaft and ends! There’s no better way to achieve a natural shine. My product pick for the best boar bristle brush is Mason Pearson. You can choose from a selection of styles at Nordstrom and other retailers. Healthy, shiny hair is soon to be yours! Happy brushing!     Renee Taglia is located in a Beverly Hills California. Contact her here for a consultation on how to discover (and keep) your perfect color.

Renee’s Picks: Hair Products for Under $20

Renee’s Picks: Hair Products for Under $20

The foundation of beautiful color is healthy hair. If you’d like to effortlessly flaunt the luscious locks that you see in the magazines and on television, it’s not impossible! Shine and great hair color begins with taking care of your hair, from root to tip, and also from taking care of yourself! Damaged hair is very brittle, and it needs to be handled with care. Being rough with your hair and using damaging products will cause it to split or break, which will elude to frizziness. Here is one of my favorite products that will give you great hair for under $20! The first step to healthy hair is to revive your hair with a deep condition! I recommend Nioxin Deep Repair Masque. The Deep Repair Masque delivers deep conditioning, manageability and smoothness at an unbelievably low cost. It is a deep treatment that helps provide protection by strengthening the hair shaft against damage and in turn reduces breakage. Here’s how it works:  Intense, lightweight conditioning agents target damaged, dry or color-treated hair, helping to provide protection by strengthening the hair shaft against damage, which reduces breakage. Try this over the weekend and I guarantee you’ll been your way to healthy, shiny, fabulous hair! Happy weekend!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! Lotions and any kind of added moisture, when used sparingly, are great at helping alleviate static.

My New Oasis – I Moved to a Private Hair Salon!!!

My New Oasis – I Moved to a Private Hair Salon!!!

For the entirety of my career as a Master Hair Colorist, I’ve worked at various high-end salons, most recently Gavert-Atelier in Beverly Hills. As a client-centric hair colorist, it is always my mission to optimize my client’s experience when she/he is in my chair; that’s why at the end of 2015 I made the decision to leave Gavert-Atelier and opening up shop in a private hair salon. This move has proven to be one of the best decisions I have made! Nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills is my gorgeous oasis. The new studio is complete with two private rooms so that my busy clients can maintain a low-key vibe as they go in and out. I wanted to create a place of optimum luxury for them, but also have it be a place where they can be at ease. They do not have to feel the pressure to dress up simply to come to the hair salon. Instead, they can completely relax and be fully taken care of in their time at the salon. Many of my clients have insanely busy schedules, and as a traveling Master Hair Colorist and Wella Educator, it is often a challenge on both our ends to schedule appointments. At my private studio, I have the ability to take clients 24/7 so that their schedules are accommodated. Couple that with the ample parking, amazing lighting in the salon and top of the line products and you will understand why my clients and I have never felt more at home. Come in for a visit and see for yourself, e-mail me to schedule an appointment or get in touch via social media. I can’t wait to share this sanctuary with my clients, old and new.

Best of the Golden Globes 2016

Best of the Golden Globes 2016

Happy Monday everyone! How great was last week’s Golden Globes? There were some serious red carpet statements this year, along with gorgeous hair and makeup to boot. Here are a few of my favorites from the red carpet at this year’s Golden Globes: I just loved Kate Hudson’s strappy nude Michael Kors dress. It was interesting to see the cutouts in the front, which also showcased her tone figure, as opposed to the back, which was fully covered and added to the classiness of the look. As for her hair, rumor has it, her stylist, David Babaii, cut it into a bob right before her red carpet entrance! I love the bit of root peeping through the blonde which definitely makes the look more natural. Jennifer Lawerence is always flawless. Her ravishing red Dior gown and her platinum bob were on point. I also love the darker toned brows. And not to mention, how about that acceptance speech? Closing the show on this blog is JLo in a stunning yellow gown by Giambattista Valli which was somewhat reminicient of Rhianna’s 2015 MET Gala look. Her hair was styled by L’Oreal hairstylist Lorenzo Martin Jr. who mentioned in a Hollywood Life article, that he created “a classic Hollywood look with her hair slightly flipped and parted to the side.”  From her jewelry to her deep red pout, this look is total perfection. Which were your favorite Golden Globe looks of 2016? Let me know in the comments below! Until next time, Renee   Renee Taglia is located in a Beverly Hills California. Contact her here for a consultation on how to discover (and keep) your perfect color.
