Spring hair trends. Big news in the hair world.

Big news in the hair world!!

Today I attended the Schwarzkopf hair show. Not only did I find out the latest scoop on Spring/Summer hair trends for 2013 (You're Welcome), but I also was a part of some exciting news.

Schwarkzkopf is the colour line that I use in the salon and they have relaunched their colours. Since there is always new and exciting things happening in the hair world, you can never get too comfortable or attached. They have introduced 21 shades to their colour line, plus changed the ingredients in their colour and developer to create a more high definition colour. How sweet is that??

What this means for my clients is crisp, clear, brilliant, vibrancy in every tube of colour.  The colour will be truer to tone, last longer and have massive amount of shine.

I'm meeting with my colour rep tomorrow to order in these new shades and I can't wait to get my paws on them and in your hair.

With that being said; your Spring/Summer hair trends this year are rich chocolates, vibrant coppery reds, silvery blondes, and pastel hues.



Pastel Pink
Stunning silver

Other trends are; Ombre, reverse ombre, a pop of colour, dipped ends, short pixie cuts, long messy beach waves, braids of any kind and ballerina buns.





So many pretty hair ideas.

What I love most about attending hair shows is that I instantly rekindle my love for what I do. It reminds me how lucky I am to have such an amazing job.

As far as I'm concerned, hairstylists are the coolest people in the world ;)

Book your Spring/Summer hair makeover with me.

See you in Manhattan!!

Ombre Love






Ombre Love

Ombre might be a dying fad with the celebs, but around here it's hot! And I love the variety of colours and styles you can play around with to achieve this look.

It's an easy style to upkeep and the more it fades and grows out, the more natural it looks.

I just can't get enough Ombre love <3

Holiday Hair

It's that time of year. Time for Holiday parties, family gatherings and Christmas cheer.

Looking for pretty holiday hair? Here's what's hot this season.

A simple bun is very classy and elegant. You can wear it messy or smooth. to the side or straight back. The bun is a classic. 


Curls are the simplest way to dress up your hair this holiday. If your hair is long or short, loose, pretty curls are in.

Ballerina buns are sweet and simple. They are very "Audrey Hepburn-esk" and I love them. This look and some Christmas red lips and you will be rocking this holiday.

I love this. It makes me wish I had long hair. Side swept pony. You can twist it to the side or add a braid in your bang to change it up. Keep it straight and sleek, add some curls or make it fun and playful with a fishtail braid.




Want any of these looks? Book your 2012 holiday hair with  me

To me, walking into a beauty parlor means walking into a universe of happiness.

A place where people can relax, unwind, gossip, get pampered, sip coffee and leave looking fabulous and feeling great.
