Summertime can be a blast for you but really hard on your hair. All that heat and sun can make hair dull, lifeless and brittle. Here are 10 tips for keeping your hair looking its best all summer long!

1) Cover Up. Wear a cute hat to protect your hair from too much sun.

cold water7) Embrace the Cold. Rinse your hair with COLD water to make your hair shinier (yup, COLD. brrr!).

SwimSpray8) Extract Damaging Chemicals. Use a chlorine-removing shampoo or SWIM SPRAY after swimming in a chlorinated pool – or add a tablespoon of baking soda into your shampoo if you don’t want to buy a different shampoo to take the chlorine out of your hair. Make sure to keep it all mixed in!


9) Keep Trim. Get your hair trimmed every 6 weeks to promote growth and to keep the ends healthy.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Summer!


Holidays Are Approaching

The Holidays Are Fast Approaching!

You’ve stowed the pool toys, switched off the AC and are pulling out the snuggly sweaters! As the temperatures dip, my color clients start craving the richer,deep chocolate, mahogany,chestnut and caramel palettes that warm them up through the holiday and winter season. Check out the “bronding” technique below.

Brondes have more fun! “Bronde” hair is that perfect shade between blonde and brunette that was first made popular back in 2007 by super model Gisele Bundchen. Many natural brunette celebrities have gone the “bronde” route.

You better call me soon. My holiday bookings fill up fast.

“Ok so I’m not typically a “Lip Gloss” type of person. Never really thought I had dry or chapped lips. Have I been wrong! I tried Pure Illumination Natural Healing Lip Gloss and what a difference.
