Santa’s Little Helper

Buckle-up, the holiday season is here! I was raised in a fairly traditional home where our Christmas tree was put up twelve days before Christmas and taken down no later than twelve days after Christmas. Definitely old-school! It has really been surprising for me when I see decorations and signs of the holiday appearing sooner and sooner every year. When does the season really start? In fact, in late September I was walking through Costco and I saw some Christmas trees poking up from behind a wall of athletic socks and comforters. Too early! A couple of weeks ago (mid-October) I...

How often should I cut my hair?

Here we are! The last week of me sharing the top questions I get from my clients. I do hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them! If you’ve been following along, last week we talked about shampooing versus no-poo. That article really elicited a lot of conversation around the dinner table.

Let’s end this series with the most fundamental question I get asked. That is how often...

Is the Price Right?

I get this question at least once a week. Clients often ask me about salon brands versus drugstore brands. Are the salon products really better? Frankly, who wouldn’t be tempted by an industrial size combo of shampoo and conditioner from your local warehouse store? It never fails, when I’m out shopping with my husband, he asks me if the 50oz combo shampoo and conditioner is a good deal. I wish I had a can with some coins to shake at him. It might scare him away from the hair care section of that store!! I digress… Salon product companies...

Don’t Fade Away

It been a while since I’ve taken pen (or keyboard) in hand, so I thought I would get back to basics with a weekly, five-part series. In my 20 years of styling, I keep hearing the same concerns from my customers, so I thought I would share them and my answers with you. You won’t find any magical secrets here, just some solid general advice to get you through the next few weeks! Without exception, all of my color clients ask “how can I make this color last?” The key to making color last is always using professional products....
