Brazilian Blowout

From a LA Salon:

"Brazilian Blowout keratin hair treatment is taking Hollywood and the world by storm. If you have curly or frizzy hair, chances are you've heard of it. The answer to hair woes for Nicole Richie, Halle Berry, Lindsay Lohan and Ashley Tisdale can be the answer to yours as well! But there are many stylists out there...and many competing products. Some salons have been known to falsely advertise "Brazilian Blowout" when they are actually using something else, then you don't even know what you're getting. Some products contain much harsher chemicals than others, while some stylists claim their product is "chemical-free."

Let’s face the reality - if they were made of rainbows and butterflies, the blowout wouldn’t last beyond a few shampoos, the exact problem you must be having or you wouldn't even be considering the service. However, Brazilian Blowout uses chemicals that are gentle and semi-permanent because they lay on the outside of the hair instead of penetrating and changing its structure.""

As many of you know, I carry a natural plant line that is not sold in Target, Wal-Mart or other retail stores. I want to have the best products, and provide the best services for my clients - including the Brazilian Blowout that has been asked for multiple times now. The class I attended, I do have to say, I was more than a little skeptical - that's my nature. But by the end, with some texting back and forth between myself and my science nerd boyfriend (checking ingredient and formulation info) - I decided this was a great way to provide a terrific service.

2011 Fall Trends

Fall is the time for many take a dive - into the world of short hair! What a great time to try something fresh, edgy and head turning. This season we’re seeing the return of masculine and feminine pixie cuts, blunt bangs, and even half shaved hairstyles.

Movement is important for men's haircuts though - use the hair and the products you've got (or I'll send you home with) to achieve these looks:

If you’re too afraid to go for a shorter style, adding blunt bangs to your look is something fresh and really simple.

Trying to grow the bangs out - braid them back for convenience and be fashion forward!
