Love Chocolate? So Will Your Hair

Love Chocolate? So Will Your Hair

Trending Color: Chocolate

Rich brunette colors are trending for Fall 2018. The right shade can make your eyes pop, your skin glow and make you look younger. I love how this model’s hair beautifully captures a gorgeous, natural and dimensional chocolate brunette.

This fall we’ll be seeing more soft honey highlights with great depth coming from the roots. No more washed out, over highlighted hair. This year it will be about a more relaxed feel and connecting with mother earth and her amazing display of autumn colors..

Ask me about my chocolate shine series and what will work best for you and your color.

Elgon Italy Trip

I’m back from my trip to Milan, Italy the fashion and design capital of the world. Such a beautiful city! Elgon Italy has been a leader in the haircare industry for over 45 years and has built their sterling reputation by offering only the highest quality products, services and techniques. I’m so excited to be able to bring the benefits of this product line to my clients! I believe educating myself to ensure my clients have the best experience and access to the most up-to-date techniques and products is one of the most important things I can do to show my clients how much I appreciate them.

I had the great pleasure of working closely with Marco Girotti, Chris Cameron and Zoey Olechnowicz. who lead the way for our International team, and brought home new cutting & color techniques.

I’m honored to have been chosen as a U.S. Educational Manager and International Educator for Elgon Italy and to train other stylists across the country & globally. Can’t wait to show you how to take your hair to the next level! I’m so inspired.

Summer Looks!

Summer Looks!

What’s trending?

The fall trend this year is “Color Melting”. Color Melting is a technique used to blend highlights with a base color to soften harsh lines. It’s been noted that most of these looks are achieved with pastel tones but this trend is spreading with brunettes, reds and blondes. It’s a great way to soften your hair color this fall.

Above is one of my beautiful models sporting a Color Melt. Her roots are dark brown which fade into her highlights and diffuse her line of demarcation. This look can be executed with a balayage technique giving her a natural soft highlight on her ends.

How to get this look:

1. Comb your hair off to the side making it smooth.

2. Create a normal braid on the side with a mini black rubber band.

3. From the top of the braid, gently and unevenly pull out the weaved pieces, working your way down the braid.

4. When finished your braid should look distorted and loose.

Short Hair

Julianne Hough knows how to wear it! Short hair is in. (Yes shorter than a Bob haircut). This fall you will see a trend of short hair styles above the shoulder going above the shoulder. It adds movement to your hair and can enhance your neck line. This is a fun, chic and sassy look!

How to get this look:

1.Use a 1-inch curling wand and wave 1- 2 inch sections of hair throughout your entire head (make sure to leave your ends out of the barrel on every other section).

2. Simply rake your hands through the hair.

(Product Tip: For body and height you can apply a volumizing mouse before drying the hair).

New Hair Treatment, New Schedule

New Hair Treatment, New Schedule

New Product

I am super excited to announce this new product called TRENTA.
This is a 30 day blow out treatment to help with frizz, shine, color, and manageability. It is similar to the keratin treatment without formaldehyde and lasts up to 30 days. I recommend this product right after any color service to lock in the color. What’s even better is that you can take this product home.

New Schedule

I would like to THANK YOU all for your patience during these past few months with my travel schedule. I have changed my hours which will be on my website. I will be unavailable on Sundays from June through September. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Did you know I made number 1 spot on google search for Master Colorist Westchester?!

Feeling blessed and honored to have reached the number one spot on google search for “Master Colorist Westchester”. I am always striving to be a better stylist/colorist than I was yesterday. This was a nice reassurance that I am going towards the right path.

Hair Mastered

I would also like to announce that I have currently been accepted to an elite hair program called “Mastered”  based in London. This is a prestigious 10 month program, and I will be training with top tier professionals from the fashion industry including hair stylists, make-up artists, fashion stylists, photographers and producers. The Mastered program will help me to become a stronger stylist by building on top of my 15 years specializing in hair color. You know I love what I do and it has always brought me great joy.. Not to worry I will not be moving to London for 10 months. This is an online program.
