Corvette is working on her first full head of locs that she started in the Smooth Hair Loctician training on making locs.
When the rona has left, she will get to finish the top but, so far, this head is coming along nicely.
Client background: she's tried to lock up before but her hair texture just would not take by twisting only. She's a natural girl and doesn't want to rely on product to hold them together so she volunteered to be a model for the class to give another technique a try.
Father/Son haircut duo by Marianne. Cant wait to have her back at the desk, doors open, and people wandering in to say hello and catch a quick haircut.
Beautiful loc maintenance on these natural locs 3B hair texture. Scroll to see different views and before photos at the end.
Walking out of our baby salon today was about as hard as dropping my kid off to preschool for the first time. If you haven't heard, it was made law that non-essential businesses are to close for 30 days starting on Wednesday morning.
I am so sorry, to all of our clientele, that we can't offer the care and sunshine that we had hoped to provide through all this. It's a helpless feeling and one that those of us in the "non-essential" community are in deep right now.
It does give us the rare opportunity to define what Essential means to us all and that is always a gift, even if it comes in a package like this.
Tanning packages are "on pause" right now and will just resume as normal when we open back up. Please contact us if you have any other questions.
Being a teenager is so hard. This world is always telling you what you are supposed to look like and you just haven't lived enough to have a strong sense of identity so, you're in the space of image experimentation which can be clumsy until you figure it out. That process is not for the faint of heart. But it can be fun if you're willing to try things.
Sometimes, we look in the mirror and it just doesn't add up. Our hair is curly when we want it straight. Its thin and straight when we want it thick. We're short when we desperately just want to be tall. I don't think any of us is free from the battle that this programming creates in our brains.
I could see on Birds face that she never 100% loved her hair after I cut it. I promised her that I would take on the challenge of helping her find her look. Her hair is curly and so blonde. Of course I think it's beautiful but she's over it. The women she idolizes have dark hair. So, she told me she wanted to make it "butterscotch". The subtle change of darkening her hair and eyebrows and straightening it had a huge impact on her confidence. I know her well enough to know that someday she'll embrace the unique details that nature gave her, but for now she's ready to just enjoy what I can give her which is a subtle edit and a sense of control over who she sees in the mirror.
Remember these from a while back? They were one and now they are many, going strong. She came back for another visit as they are now in training mode and need some regular maintenance to get them reacquainted w/ their new locations. I banned them to help them stay separate during this phase. From the roots down about 4-6", they are basically new dreads and will go through all the phases a new dread goes through of shrinking and spitting hairs. They are doing amazing!
Shannon has been my artistic muse for years now. I've done every color on her head and she's rocked it like nothing. Alas, the military has taken her from me so we decided to do one more fun hair project before she left. Good luck my dear!! I will miss you like crazy!
We have, as a team, decided to stay open this week for limited hours to accommodate tanners and hair clients who have appts already. We are taking this day by day so, if we don't feel good about it, we will adjust as necessary. 👭👭 Tanning and Red Light Therapy do offer a good source of Vitamin D which is proven effective at keeping you healthy from the flu and Corona so, we view our space as a space of healing. 🌼🧘♀️ As usual, we go above and beyond to keep our environment and our beds sanitized with cleaning agents that are proven to kill Coronaviris and WE clean the beds, not our clients. 👍 If you have chosen to take the week off of tanning, please contact the salon and let them know that you will need to add a week to your membership, at no cost, to make up for this. We understand if you do not feel comfortable coming in.
Boss man let me play with his color after he did a cool design on the side of my head. (Back from when I was still at The Parlor)
Asorable out of towner came in for her first visit with me after 3 years of zero maintenance from the time her dreads were created. I think its amazing how well her locs had done with no external care. (Just goes to show that hair loves not being brushed and dreadlocks will form nicely if hair is put into the right position)
I was going to close for the week and then I remembered that Vitamin D is of major importance when keeping your immune system boosted. Tanning beds and red light therapy beds provide a good source of Vitamin D.
We have been in a cleaning frenzy the past week making sure that our establishment is safe. We have always taken the highest precautions keeping our beds sanitized.
(We are offering you an extended week on your current memberships if you want to avoid the salon for this week. Just call the salon to request it)
Be well everyone. Keep your spirits up, eat your veggies, take tons of vitamin c, rest, avoid socializing....
Tons of balayage highlights underneath purple for an effect that changes depending on the lighting, as shown in the photos. I love how subtle this effect is.
One month old partial locs getting their first maintenance visit. Pulling in the loose hairs that spit out as the dreads shrink, lengthening and shaping them all part of training then to be big girl dreads one day.
Kendall went back to red again!
Getting Allies locs back in shape after years of different locticians with different techniques working on them. The interlocking that was done is really hard to come back from as I can't undo all the knots so I just have to loosen them up to avoid breakage that it can sometimes cause.
Red wine color melt on Sara. So Autumn.
Believe it or not, this is a question we get asked a lot. Short answer: yes. Read through the information in this post.
I mean... sheesh. Kat let me make these locs years ago and has me color them or maintenance them regularly. You can see the payoff. Years of coloring and fading, lightening and adding new colors creating layers of lusciousness.
Usually I'm trying to make people's hair curl more but this client does not enjoy having curly hair, especially since it's become very fine since childbirth.
After cutting and stylng her hair like this, I felt like I could see her true personality come through. Classy woman but with an edge.
This was AFTER her haircut.
In hindsight, I wish I had straightened it because that would have been even more epic. Next time I may lock it up. You just never know.
Chelsea got brave and let me cut her bangs for a different look at her last maintenance visit. I absolutely love it. She's the cutest.
This was a fun project. I love playing with asymmetrical peekaboo placement. High impact and low damage.
Getting that black box dye off so the pink would pop was the first order of business and I didn't want to do too much of her head in case her hair didn't survive it. I haven't done her hair before so that can be scary when you don't know the full history and she wants to turn this into dreads soon so losing length isn't an option.

Slowly trying to make our way back to platinum on Emily's hair. The first 3 pics on this collage were her visit the prior month. You can see how different the color looks in different lighting. Its pretty silver and those ends are still holding a bit of warmth. Its really important that you have realistic goals when doing a color correction. Getting to white may just not be in the cards after all that dark she's had on her hair but I'll do my best to keep trying. I definitely make sure to use Olaplex and pay attention to the hairs limits.
Learning this craft has been such a unique blessing for my career because there's just not many people who know how to do it at a time when being more natural has become so popular.
But, there's only 1 of me and soooooo many clients... literally new ones almost every day coming by word of mouth. Mamma can't keep up!
Im creating 2 options for training: one that happens in 2 workshops or one that happens over 3 months and you're learning next to me 2 times a week. Either option has potential of landing you a position in my salon where clients are already being directed, depending on your aptitude.
