I know that icy blonde is still very popular, but I love a golden blonde. There’s something about how natural a warmer blonde can look. ✖️ I find that warmer blondes also tend to need less maintenance. Since they’re already a golden tone, there’s no need for purple shampoos or masks. ✖️ That is not to say that they don’t still need love and care at home. ✖️ This blonde was created with a combination of @redken color fusion for the base, Flash Lift Bonder Inside for the highlights, and shades EQ for the lowlight and overall gloss. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals #goldenblonde #samvilla #framar

After lightening and glossing, I shampooed and conditioned with @Redken High Rise, now known as Volume Injection. ✖️ For the blowout, I combed Redken Guts 10 through all of the hair and topped the miss and ends with Oil for All. ✖️ A good blowout takes good tools, but starts with appropriate products. ✖️ Do you have favourite products that you always turn to, or do you like to switch it up? ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals

One thing I love about @Redken Cover Fusion is how natural looking the result it. It gives dimensional gray coverage and helps condition the hair. ✖️ The dimensional result that cover fusion gives makes it a great base to highlight with. The tones always blend beautifully. ✖️ How do you like to create natural looking dimension? ✖️Highlights using Up to 7, glossed with Shades EQ. ✖️ Haircut and blowout using @samvillahair tools. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals

This was one of my all time favourite blondes. I’m all for the super icy blondes, they’re beautiful. But there’s something about a well balanced neutral blonde that will forever have my heart. ✖️ I love how soft and natural tones like this look. They’re not harsh. They compliment many skin tones. And I find they are much easier to maintain. ✖️ For this guest I used @Redken cover fusion as her base, and that also helps provide the lowlight effect seen. Highlights done with Up to 7. Gloss is the incomparable shades EQ. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals

✖️ S T E R L I N G ✖️ Another view of this hair. ✖️ One thing to note about this guest and her hair is that she is able to be lightened to the ideal level for pale silver. ✖️ Not all hair can be pale silver and still be healthy. And keeping the hair healthy comes first for me. I want your hair to feel beautiful as much as I want it to look beautiful. ✖️ Naturally dark hair often takes multiple processes to achieve light tones, if it can handle being taken there at all. If someone’s hair can’t tolerate being lightened to such a pale tone, there are still options.✖️
Another thing about pale tones, silver included, is that the pigment that creates them isn’t super concentrated, so they do fade more quickly. ✖️ I like to send my silver guests home with @Redken Graydient. The purple shampoo keeps the hair from yellowing, and the silver conditioner helps to maintain tone between appointments. This line also helps keep the hair soft, which is great for natural and artificial silver hair, alike. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals

✖️ A T L ✖️ Home. I made my way back home to Georgia, and I’m excited to say that starting this week, I’m making my way back behind the chair as well. ✖️
I’m now accepting appointments on Fridays and Saturdays at @vividhairsalon in Decatur. ✖️ Starting over is never easy, but I’m excited to be taking the first steps and to be back in a beautiful Redken salon. ✖️ I’ll be working Fridays from 3-9pm and Saturdays from 9am-5pm. ✖️
Big thanks to @redkenedu_jordan for guiding me when I was looking for a new salon home. And thanks to @lizatvivid for the opportunity to be a part of your salon company. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlanta #atl #atlantahair #atlhair #atlantahairstylist #decaturhair #hairofatlanta #hairofatl #hairgoals

✖️S T E R L I N G✖️
So, silver hair is cool right? It’s still a big trend right now, and that’s great. BUT... ✖️
Let me tell you a few things about silver hair. It’s a difficult thing to achieve, just like a pure white blonde. ✖️ The hair has to be lightened as much as possible to get a “true” silver tone. There can’t be any significant warmth left in the hair, whether that be from previous colour or natural colour. This means for someone starting with dark hair, especially artificially dark, getting to silver will be a process if it’s even possible. ✖️ A few things to consider are whether you’re willing to invest the time and money into getting there and whether you’re willing to commit to the maintenance. Those really pale silver tones will only look like that for a couple weeks. If you want a silver that will last longer, consider a deeper shade. ✖️
This guest is not only naturally lighter haired, but also already has natural silver coming in. ✖️ Don’t take me or any other stylist explains all the details and possibly being hesitant as a “no”, instead be open to it being more of a “not now” or “not all at once”. ✖️
Lightened with Flashlift Bonder Inside, glossed with Redken Shades EQ 010T. ✖️

✖️ S H A G G Y✖️ One more of this cut on my love @_hairbymelissa__. ✖️After finished her cut, I blow dried with @Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer, Velvet Gelatine 07, and Oil for All. ✖️ I finished with Triple Dry for some added visual texture. Some other fantastic options for getting the most texture/ piecey-ness out of a shag are Rewind 06, Wax Blast 10, or Rough Paste 12.✖️ I’m so into all the varieties of this haircut that are popular right now and hope to do more once we get moved and I start work (somewhere) in Atlanta. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #atlantahairstylist

Alright Folx, this is it. The homestretch before we move.
My last day in the salon is Saturday, November 21st.
I still have some availabilities.
Please let me know if you would like to get in before I leave!

10/27/2020

✖️S H A G G Y✖️ I think one of the keys to a good shag is to let it be disconnected. If you blend everything out, you don’t get the piecey, texture heavy feel that is so much of what makes this cut what it is. ✖️ Sometimes it’s hard to let the layers sit so disconnected, especially from the length. I know I have a ton of guests who don’t want to see their layers, and a shag is the exact opposite. ✖️ This is definitely an instance of forget what you know and just cut the darn thing. ✖️ If you’re looking for inspiration for shags or how to cut them, I highly recommend @justbhair, @mandaziegelman, @pinkdagger, and of course @samvillahair. There are many others out there, but I know these folx know what’s up when it comes to fun and funky hair design. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #shag #shaghaircut #hairdesign

10/24/2020

✖️ S H A G G Y✖️ Okay. I’m gonna say it. I love a good shag. I love that this cut is coming back into popularity and that it’s taking on so many different variations. ✖️ I was so excited when my sweet coworker @_hairbymelissa__ said “I want to chop it off. I want a shag”. Done. I got you girl. ✖️ Melissa has naturally textured hair that gives this cut an even more piecey, undone vibe, but it also looks so good styled like this. ✖️ Give me all the shags to cut and I’ll be happy forever. I’m so thankful that I’ve been getting to have more fun with the thing that made me fall in love with hair: DESIGN. It’s not everyone’s favourite thing, but it sparked my fire. ✖️ Cut done with various Sam Villa shears. Styled with @Redken Oil for All and Velvet Gelatine 07 and @samvillahair round brushes. ✖️Finished with Redken Triple Dry 15. #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #shaghaircut #shag

Final October availabilities. And then only 3 more weeks left at the salon after that! I’ll post November availability soon.

10/18/2020

✖️V E R S A T I L E✖️ Another angle on this fun textured bob. ✖️ After enhancing her natural waves, I used @redken Triple Dry 15 to give it some extra grit and amplify the texture.✖️I used to do bobs and short hair all the time. I definitely think that hair design is a skill that if you don’t use it, you can lose it, or at least get rusty. ✖️ Do you enjoy haircutting? What are your favourite types of cuts to do? ✖️#caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #shorthair #bobhaircut #bob #hairdesign

10/14/2020

✖️V E R S A T I L E ✖️ I don’t talk about this enough, but I love design (cutting). I think a great haircut is the foundation to everything else we do to the hair. The look of beautiful can be make or break if the haircut isn’t right. ✖️ In this case, my guest wanted to chop it all off. It’s weird to say that someone has a nice neck and shoulders for a Bob, but it is what it is. ✖️ If this haircut were styled straight, it would just look like a blunt cut, but because of her hair density, I created a ton of internal texture so that it will move nicely and also not be so bulky. ✖️ For the finish, I played off the natural wave she has and just enhanced it in the sides, middle, and top using a flat iron. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #bluntcut #bobhaircut #texturedbob #hairdesign

✖️D U S T Y R O S E✖️ Okay, so now that you’ve got a pretty pastel haircolour, how do you take care of it? ✖️ First, let me start by saying that pastel tones are higher maintenance. Because they start out lighter, there’s much less wiggle room in the “fading” department. I hate to use the word fading, but it is what it is. ✖️ One of the top things to keep your colour pristine for longer is to wash it as little as you possibly can. Once a week would be great, but I know that’s not feasible for everyone. Really try to not wash more than 3 times a week. Dry shampoo will be your best friend; I recommend @redken Deep Clean dry shampoo. ✖️ Another huge priority is limiting the amount of heat used on the hair, as well as making sure you’re using a heat protectant every time. This is crucial for all haircolour, but especially pastel or vivid tones. If you blowdry, I recommend Redken Pillow Proof Express Blowdry Primer. If you’re more of a curling or flat iron human, then Redken Play Safe 450° or Iron Shape 11 are my go-tos. ✖️What other info would you like to know about having pastel toned hair? ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #pinkhair #rosehair #fallhair

10/08/2020

✖️ D U S T Y R O S E✖️ As I mentioned in my previous post, for this hair, I used all @redken shades EQ gloss. This helps Brit change her hair up without major commitment, while also conditioning her previously highlighted hair. ✖️ For her root extension, I used 06VRo alone. I also added a few foils of this as lowlights for added dimension. ✖️ For her ends, I used a combination of 09VRo, 09AA, and Pastel Pink. 09AA is a hidden gem that I feel has so many uses. Here, I used it to keep her hair from looking flat out pink/ purple. Not that those are bad, it just wasn’t what we were going for. ✖️ Just have to thank Brit for always trusting my ideas for her hair. ✖️ Up next: best practices to maintain pastel hair. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #pinkhair #rosehair #fallhair

10/07/2020

✖️ D U S T Y R O S E✖️ Brit is leaving for a new adventure in Texas, but before she leaves, she had to have new hair. ✖️ Early disclaimer, we work together and this was late and in a separate part of the salon, hence no mask. Don’t come for me. ✖️ Brit wants to give her hair a break from highlighting, but her new growth was driving her a little crazy. We chose to do a root extension and gloss her ends, but make it pink. ✖️ All @Redken shades EQ gloss. Stay tuned for what I used and how to take care of pastel tones like this. ✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #pinkhair #rosehair

✖️B U T T E R Y✖️ Back to warm blondes, especially with balayage. Traditional, open air balayage almost always yields warmer tones, which is why there are so many techniques out there to mimic that lived in look, but that can offer lighter blonde. ✖️ Did you know that warm blonde appears brighter than it’s cool toned counterpart, even at the same level? I use the comparison that we think of the sun as warm toned and bright, versus the moon as cool toned and dark. ✖️ I think that taking advantage of warmer tones in blonde help them look more natural. ✖️ What blonde team are you on, warm or cool?✖️ #caitgilesstyles #redken #redkenobsessed #redkenready #redkenshadeseq #redkenelitesalon #redkencertifiedcolorist #redkencolor #redkenhaircare #showusyourshades #saloncentric #ittakesapro #diabetichairstylist #balayage #warmblonde #fallhair
