summer buns

Summer buns,  Do you love them? Imagine my delight when I caught sight of these piled high chignons, perfect for summer!
Blondes do look lovely with this look. Smoke it out with a sexy eye like this and barely there lip stain also by Scott Barnes here.
Imagine my extra excitement when I saw this little bottle my chair side tool also the styling spray of choice for the looks here

Just a little side note about the tutorials, I think Scott Barnes is an amazing make up artist, I don't however agree with lighting your eye pencil before applying. My tip* choose a softer, mineral oil free, black or dark brown pencil for this look, and make sure to sharpen regularly.
*This helps to keep pencil free from bacteria especially when using around the eye.

hippie hair love

great braiding and more hair tips here

it's all about loose, soft, sexy, waves

 Conditioning long hair is essential hair. Nourished, healthier hair  cuts down on blow dry time a smoothing serum helps too 

For all of my Brazilian Blowout Babes, the treatment to keep frizz out and smooth, sexy, shiny hair in has been a success! The sulfate free shampoo and aftercare products from Brazilian Blowout with Acai and other nourishing ingredients are recommended from the manufacturer to guarantee long, lasting, results. Keeping with the Sulfate free shampoo's I was so excited to see that this Miracle product now has a new Sulfate free moisturizing shampoo. Using products like the Shampoo, mask, leave-in conditioner and new styling serum would surely keep your hair looking smooth, soft, and wouldn't that be nice if it made it grow long too?

red headed beauty

high hair and razor sharp nails, showing off a what looks like a beehive of a ring

lashes on top and bottom give this incredible wide eyed, cat eye effect

jewels on her wrist and her lashes, look closely

I Love the many many different hues of redheads. I mentioned a few on yesterday's post with the likes of Julienne Moore and Kate Walsh. I love my special mix of reds in the Salon. Taking a peak at fgr this morning gave me such a big surprise with the high hair, luxurious curls with bangs, and some eye-catching make up, what do you think? Too avante garde or tres chic?

Are you considering bangs with your curls? As you can see here it works

cascade of curls naturally or use this for a little spring in your curl

champagne and gold compliment a redhead

Spring in your step and in your curls with this treatment

 check out the sparrows on her Miu Miu's 

don't forget to use this shampoo to keep you red hot

coiffure colors

Who said big hair wasn't back do you love this toffee and caramel colored hue?

Bouncy, burnished red coils

Sable brown on a classic bob with bangs, tres chic!

Buttery, blondes perfect for a blond expressive cut and color

Just another way to spice things up and look at color in a different way. I am referring to the different colors I have shown here. Coffee or caramel Color, think of  this pic of Ellen Pompeo.  Red heads, Julianne Moore has the richest and Kate Walsh has a lighter lovely tone.When referring to a truffle, brown, brunette, a client usually is usually looking to achieve warmth, and richness, think Catherine Zeta Jones.  Can't wait to try this blonde expressive technique with Wella using a new, formulation of the already superb, Blondor, looking forward to my Webinar and doing a little demo with this beautiful spectrum of color
