Client of the Month!

This month we would like to feature a few pics of our wonderful client, Lisa! Lisa is now leaving us to start a new chapter in Boston. We are super excited for her, but very sad to lose such a fun person to chat with in the salon.

We have been cutting and coloring Lisa's hair for quite some time now. Lisa is a young professional in the city, who would be a perfect fit for a Nylon mag shoot. For the cut, Liana adds layers and cuts in a bang that she refers to as a "curtain bang," framing her hairline and forehead. For awhile now, I have been adding subtle panels of color throughout the interior layers of hair. Creating a peek a boo effect, that results in barely any regrowth- especially compared to a traditional highlight. This type of highlight is perfect for the girl doesn't want the maintenance of a highlight service, yet wants something to break up her solid haircolor. Lisa is a professor at Corcoran (how cool is that?!) and has to keep it professional. Yet she enjoys having a little fun with her hair. We just snapped a few pics in the salon, the lighting isn't the best to show the color, but you get the drift...

Come visit us Lisa and Good Luck!!

Check back soon, we will be featuring a contest next entry, stay cool guys!

Summer is Here!

It has been awhile friends!! Hopefully everyone is enjoying the beginning of summer and ready to battle the fabulous DC humidity we all adore so dearly. Lots of things are happening right now and we have enjoyed all of our client visits as everybody is transitioning into their summer hair.

We have been collecting hair for the oil booms and actually made a personal trip to the post office to send out our first collection of hair to Florida. has also added a few more videos to their site that are fun to watch. We have watched them over and over and are still amazed something this easy could make such a huge difference. There has been controversy in regards to the topic and whether or not the natural made booms are sinking too quickly. We would like to find the time to do more research on the topic but until then, we're gonna keep on truckin'. We plan to keep our spirits high in hopes that every little fiber of hair makes some sort of difference.
Below are just a few silly photos of our crazy box of hair...who knows, maybe some of it is yours!!!

On a lighter note, in honor of summer, I would like to post a few photos of a incredibly stunning blonde client of mine. Her name is Kristina and she is a fairly new client that I adore. When Kristina first came into the salon she was a hair color virgin! Luckily for the majority of her life, she has remained blonde from the sun. During our consultation, her main issue was that she felt her hair was losing its natural lightness. Kristina's number one priority was to keep her haircolor looking very natural. I always love hearing this because "natural" beautiful haircolor is what I am all about. Here are a few photos of the lovely Kristina, you may be reminded of that classic California blonde by the photos. However, don't be mistaken, Kristina is a born and bred Texan. I swear, that state produces some beautiful women!!!
