Don’t go to prom looking like everyone else! Let a me be part of your glam squad this season and turn some heads with a trendy hairstyle unique to you 💁🏻‍♀️ Come let me play with your hair and receive 15% off your personal style if you’re going to prom! Maybe we can even take some Instagram worthy pics for you to share with your whole squad ✨

Never would have thought I’d see @juliana_roe as a full blonde... but oh my goodness she can rock this look flawlessly. Can you believe we only did a partial balayage for her?! A little bit can go a long way my friends 😊 #blondehair #blondebalayage #wellatoner #balayagehair #blondeshavemorefun #healtyhair #hairtrends #bombshell #cbd #hairlove #livedinblonde #dimensionalblonde @ Evolve Salon and Spa

Or “my husband... blah blah blah” I hear this behind the chair all the time. LADIES. Don’t let any man dictate what you can and can’t do. If he loves you he’ll love you no matter what you choose to do SPECIALLY when it comes to YOUR hair. If he can’t accept you with random colors in your hair or a different type of cut than you usually get... you might wanna re-evaluate your relationship 🤷🏻‍♀️

I did a thing 😬

From brassy to sassy! This babe came in with a very brassy, yellow/orange balayage with red brown roots on top of her natural regrowth peaking through. To fix that, @haircraftbyelba did a full balayage with the one and only freelights with some extra cool lightening powder (with wellaplex of course!) by @wella to lift and tone some of those orangey strands while still brightening the yellow. Then she did a root smudge with @joico’s lumishine in 4NA and lastly toned with @wella’s illumina color, using 1oz of 8/1 + .50oz of 8/69 + one part service and one part pastel developer to prevent the ends from absorbing the toner too quickly for an even result at the end! Lastly, she used the wella brilliance mask to nourish her strands to the point that the client actually said “I can’t believe this is my hair! It’s so soft and shiny” 😍 safe to say we are loving this ashy goddess ✨ #wella #loudouncounty #spring #sterlingva #ashburn #leesburg #purcevilleva #balayage #balayageartist #ashyblonde #trendyhair #fashion #springhair #hairinspo #hairporn

This is such an important read.

“I am a hairdresser”
“Oh, how cool! I would love to sit around and play with hair all day”
“Thanks, I really love it”
“I wanted to do that too but I had to get a real job”

I chose my profession, yes I said profession. I have an education; believe it or not, I am not dumb.
I have a license that probably looks similar to the one in your accountant’s office.

“So in beauty school, they just teach you how to braid hair and stuff?”
“Yes, we did learn how to braid, along with all the bones and muscles in the body, along with chemistry, electricity, along with business, along with anatomy and physiology”
“Oh wow, I don’t see why you need all that just to cut hair”

I was taught how to properly help you achieve the look you are wanting while maintaining the integrity of your hair. But I have also dropped my head in defeat because I couldn’t get Sara’s hair to move from black to white in two hours. Then drove home in tears because I knew Sara was a walking un-happy billboard for my business. And although I did everything I knew to do Sara isn’t happy. In tears because I knew Sara would tell everyone who would listen about how “that stupid hairdresser” ruined her hair while leaving out that she was dishonest about the history of her hair.

I do get upset when I hear “I’m going to hair school; I already know everything so I just need to be certified. Since I’m so good I might as well get paid for it” If you are that good I am happy for you. But having the “I already know everything” mentality is going out the window the first time a screaming 2-year-old sits in your chair. When he moves and screams louder with every cut you make. I have walked out the back door of the salon more than once wondering if his mother was going to put a review about me on Google, or Yelp or if I would get my own Facebook rant. Because her little boy looks terrible because of the “horrible experience” he had with “that stupid Hairdresser”

I have cried with clients while touching up their roots for their parents, or worse their child’s funeral.

I have curled little girls for the Daddy/Daughter dance listening to them tell me how they are going to look just like Cinderella! While I hope to get home in time to at least get a picture of my little boy before he leaves let alone have time to do his hair.

I hear “I would love to go into work at 10”. Yes, I open at 10 that doesn’t mean my day starts at 10! Just because we “close” at 6 doesn’t mean we leave at 6.

I hear “I would come to you but your prices are too high”. Again I have an education that wasn’t free. I have booth rent, I have to pay for any and every product I use on your head. If my thinning shears pull your hair it’s because they need sharpening, that’s not free. And I have to use Ken to sharpen them because the last time Dave did it they got bent, and had to be replaced. Those aren’t free.

I can’t turn away a client because they are sick I just have to pray I don’t catch it. Health insurance doesn’t come in our lack-of-benefits package. And it’s a good thing that in school we stopped playing with each other's hair long enough to learn business because I am the only one looking out for my retirement.

So the next time you may be in a hair chair think of the person helping you. The person who had the courage to bet on themselves and walk away from job security, guaranteed income, insurance, a 401k plan, and family dinner to stand behind you.

I am a hairdresser

I have the crooked fingers, scared knuckles, burnt fingertips, and sore feet to prove it!

Give your skin the love it deserves with our wonderful esthetician here at Evolve Salon and Spa ✨

The seasons are changing and so should your skin routine! The key to ageless glowing skin in the spring & summer is exfoliation to keep pores clear, remove dead skin, & help your skin care products penetrate into the epidermis. Always apply a moisturizer that contains no lower than 30 SPF every morning rain or shine & reapply if you will be in the water or perspiring! Evolves Honey Enzyme Glow Facial is great for hydration, exfoliation & antioxidants! Come see our master esthetician @caldwell_jillian to get the beautiful skin that you deserve!
