Do you have some hair that needs some serious TLC!?!? 

Do have hair that feels a little distressed each time you color it?

Do you have blonde hair that you would like to get a little blonder without the worry of breakage?

Do you want a hair treatment that is not a conditioner- that actually improves the structure of your hair, whether it be in salon or take home?

Then you probably want to try Olaplex. Olaplex is one of the newest, innovative products to come out this year. There is a reason why most A-lister colorists are using it on their clients. 

Please check them out for yourself....

Highlights: Foils or Hair Painting..... which is right for you?

I've recently been getting a lot of questions from new and old clients asking...

if hair painting is right for them? and what is the difference between the two?

Let's see........ I'll answer the second question first.

When I foil clients, which I do very well, I tend to make sure that the highlights look like they are growing directly out of the scalp. And are the same color from root to end.

I, also, find that I can get the color to come up lighter in a foil (in some cases). If you are a dark brunette, and you want your highlights to be platinum blonde, the first time, I will probably foil you. If you want it to look like that bright blonde is coming right out of your scalp, then I will foil you. If you want that stripey look, then foils are for you.

Though, do not ask me to do a thick stripy look. * cause I won't *

If you want highlights that have a soft gradience then hair painting is right for you. With proper technique, the color will softly transition from light to lighter. If I paint close to the roots, the application is so gentle, that there is not a strong color of demarcation coming from the scalp. This makes for a softer grow out... think, months in between services. Unlike with foils, where you need to have them touched up anywhere from 7-10 weeks. Also, if you want to keep a more natural, deeper root area, then we would start the highlights further down. 

Unfortunately, I haven't taken many pics, up close, of my clients that get highlights with foil. SO, just for a basis of comparison, I am going to steal a few from the internet. 

Here are a few foil examples. And I will make a point to show how it looks near the root and how you can see a bit of the stripey effect...........

And here are a few photos of hair painting (close to the scalp and a bit rooty, by me).......

in theses top two, you will never have a strong line as the hair grows out. The highlights are close to the scalp, yet they are still soft and muted.


In these two, you can see the depth at the scalp along with a beautiful transition into the highlight.


Also, if you are a dark brunette, have a lot of damage, or have been coloring your hair dark for a while, and you want to go blonde.... you must be patient and allow for several services to get there. That way I can insure the integrity of your hair stays in place.

Hope this all helps, and if you have any specific questions just shoot me an email or call the salon for a consultation at 772-299-1570

What is hairpainting? Or hair painting, you say....

Have you been hearing the words hairpainting, hair painting or hand painted highlights more and more often lately? Well, if you haven't... then you should be. It's been all the rage in New York, for the past few years, and is slowly spreading elsewhere. 

To be technical, hairpainting is a specific type of balayage. Balayage has been around for decades, especially in Europe. The term hairpainting lends itself to a style that has much broader strokes and is not intended to mimic foil highlights. No heavy streaks coming out of the scalp. 

Yet, it can be amazingly natural.

Or even quite dramatic, depending on how you do it.

But either way, there is a softness in how the pressure the stylist applies, near the scalp, that allows for an incredible subtleness and amazingly natural grow out.

I recently went to a fantastic workshop in Brooklyn, NY offered by the amazing Jenny Regec of  The Paint Box   It was a day of awe inspiring inspiration, and mad hands on application. Over the course of the day, I had my hands on 3 models of my own, and was able to create 3 different styles. 

First, was Joanna. With her, she had old box color on her mid lengths and ends. I added a rich brown to her roots through the mids, and painted some highlights throughout. Then we followed with a beautiful red/copper glaze. 

Then, I had Ewa. She had a fun short haircut and already uses a blonde haircolor. We decided to add some fun, creative placement highlights into her hair. It's amazing how natural they looked, and how softly they will grow out for her. 

Finally, there was Courtney. She had some older highlights. So, we added more, still keeping them softer closer to her roots. Then we finished them with a beautiful, apricot glaze, which really brought it all together.

This technique is amazing, and I can't wait to start utilizing it on my clients here in Vero Beach. If we haven't already talked about these options for your hair, give me a call and we can set up a consultation. I'll let you know if it is right for you, and what the best option will be.
