Operating as usual
It's FRIDAY! Our little family instituted "Friday Family Fun Nights" about a year ago, and we all look forward to them every week. Even with limited options of things to go and do these days, every Friday feels like a real event!
While I love my salon days...the energy, the connection, the joy of making people look and feel their very best, I must admit I truly look forward to the rest and recharge of the weekend, and kicking them off with our Friday night ritual!
What does your weekend have in store? Hopefully some rest, family and FUN!
Dimensional color...what is that exactly? First let me tell you what it is not! Dimensional color is anything but flat, solid, dull, or basic.
Dimensional color is created utilizing services, techniques and color products to create a truly custom color for each guest. It has movement, shine and radiance(like the hair of your childhood)!
Guests love dimensional color because it transforms texture, blends gray, warms the complexion, and can be fully customized for their unique hair, lifestyle, and goals.
As a dimensional color specialist, I find great joy in introducing my clients to all of the options and benefits of this next level color experience. Interested in adding some dimension? Contact me thru the website link to request or upgrade an appointment.
Getting it all done... as a working mom, I know that this is a shared challenge we face everyday. Juggling work, home and family often leaves little time for self care.
It's so hard to make time for yourself, but you are a priority too! Scheduling time to take care of your hair once every 4-10 weeks is one way to set yourself up for easier and more successful hair days, and we all know when we look good we feel good too! Think of it as a gift to your future self!
Do you need easier mornings, less frustrating hair days, and a mood boost? Schedule some time for you!
SO...word on the street(or Tik Tok) is that the side part is old news!! I'm here to say, that it absolutely is one of the most wearable and flattering ways to style your hair...so don't fret if you love your side part!
But IF you are feeling like you want to hop on the center part trend, or a little iffy, let me introduce you to the soft center part! Why I love it:
*It is not as harsh on the face as a definite center part.
*It plays better with cowlicks and natural growth patterns.
*It lets the hair fall more naturally, which means less work for you!
Life is hard, your hair doesn't have to be! My goal for every client is to have effortless hair that they can recreate with success every day. That's why talking about the best products, tools and techniques for your hair is a part of every appointment discussion. Hoping to make your hair(and life!) a little easier, one appointment at a time:)
Effortless style...my goal for every client! A few tricks to achieve relaxed, easy, barely there waves:
*Use a flat iron or 1 1/4 inch curling iron.
*Keep your iron vertical, and leave ends and some random pieces straight.
*Too much curl? Take bigger sections, or run a flatiron over them to relax the wave.
Remember, less is more!
Harsh detergents, wax and water...wonder what these have in common? They are found in large doses in consumer brand shampoo & conditioners! Ick! While they may be desirable components for washing your car, they wreak havoc on our hair, and act as cheap bottle fillers(meaning you pay a lot for water and get less uses per bottle compared to their professional counterparts)!
Are you investing in professional color services? Are you still using consumer/grocery store shampoo & conditioner? If so, now is the time I encourage you to make a change, stop washing your color down the drain, and preserve your investment!
Thru the end of February, Halo is offering our Semi-Annual Shampoo & Conditioner Sale- take 20% off 10oz. sizes/30% off liters. This is a great time to make the switch, or stock up on your favorites. We offer a number of lines, and at multiple price points. I would be happy to help you select the best option or combination for your hair type and budget! Need a recommendation? Comment below or email me at [email protected] for your custom hair care pairing!
"My color looks so good, I wish it would stay just like this!" Creating beautiful, dimensional color that wears from visit to visit is my specialty, but there are a few tricks that can help extend that fresh color feeling between retouches too!
*Accent foils or babylights help to soften outgrowth making gray less noticable as the weeks go on. They add great dimension also, bonus!
*Utilize a temporary(cosmetic, not chemical) root cover product along your partline and at the hairline the last week or two before your retouch appointment. I have a favorite professional airbrush spray that does WONDERS and provides beautiful, full coverage.
*Keep color vibrant and tone on point by sticking with a pro color-treated shampoo and conditioner, such as Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed or Amika Vault.
Looking for suggestions on how to extend the life of your color and retouch appointments? Need some of the goods I mentioned above? Ask me, I’d be happy to help!
"How did you decide to do hair?” So many reasons...but here's a glimpse into the heart and start...
Growing up with natural curly hair, I found it was difficult to find a stylist who truly heard and understood my specific hair needs. I knew that I wanted the opportunity to help others feel confident and love their own hair, which fanned the flame of the beauty industry in me. I have been a stylist now for over 18 years and have never been more in love with my clients or my craft!
I am blessed beyond measure to get to work in this amazing industry, connect with clients, and work in an inspiring, positive, salon home with some of the funnest (and funniest)people on earth! I really do have the best job in the world💗
Maintenance...sounds like a 4 letter word! One more thing we have to do, a chore, an obligation. Ugh. While color, and specifically gray coverage, may be be a "have to do", I am a firm believer that it can and should still be a "want to do"! It's my goal that guests infuse fun, change, and a little excitement into their routine retouch appointments. Accent foils, glosses, and seasonal color transitions keep things fresh, and guests leaving feeling refreshed!
Ahhh, snow days! Hoping yours means and extra cup of coffee and a slower start to your day or an earlier start to your weekend! For those who are in a total childcare panic and heading out into the elements, skip the hair today...dry shampoo, messy bun or stocking cap required! Official hairstylist orders!
The color experience...did you know that as colorists we have hundreds of shade options to choose from, and utiilize multiple types of color also? Every guest in my chair has at least 2-3 shades mixed into their custom retouch formulation! This allows me to fully customize and hand select colors based on gray coverage needs, desired depth, and what tones we want to enhance or control. I believe that just like no two heads of hair are the same, no two formulas should be either!
Why gloss? Gloss has the ability to add dimension, shine, blend gray or completely change the tone and depth of the hair...with zero damage and low commitment! Glossing is a great option for those who wish to switch from highlights to color, and then back to highlights seasonally. Every gloss is custom formulated based on the needs and goals for each guest. Let's get glossy;)
ⓉⒾⓂⒺ we all want more...but know that at the end of the day, we still each only get 24 hours! What if you were offered the gift of time? More time to do what you want(or need 🙄)to do? Giving clients a truly customized haircut and styling plan that works for their texture and lifestyle is like winding back the clock. You too can win back precious minutes in your day, while still looking polished and put together! #customhaircut #airdrystyle #texturedhair #wavyhair #busymomma #workingmom #easyhairroutine #dimensionalcolorspecialist #certifiedcolorist #graycoveragespecialist #saginawmichigan #halohairlife #saginawstylist
Curtain Bangs💗 They are here, and they are staying(at least until the next bang trend)! Who do these work for?
For fine haired gals, they add volume and lift around the face and make hair appear thicker! For thick haired clients like my model here, they remove weight around the face offering volume and reducing bulk! For all...they face frame like no other!
Wondering how to recreate effortless curtain bangs each day? Along with the right shape, you need a little product, a round brush and a few key blowdry tips...which I teach all of my curtain bang guests! Thinking you want to try on this trend? Let’s do it!😉#curtainbangs #effortlesshair #thickhair #customhaircut #saginawstylist #dimensionalcolorspecialist #howtostylebangs #greatlakesbaystylist #halohairlife

Healthy winter hair is MOISTURIZED hair! By far the #1 hair & skin complaint this time if year is dryness! The combo of low humidity, dry indoor heating and bursts of cold outdoor air, it’s no surprise that our hair is zapped of moisture. This is where masks(hair not face 😉)save the day! Moisture masks go beyond what your daily conditioner provides(think night cream vs day cream) by actually penetrating the hair with lasting moisture. Masks can be used weekly, every other shampoo, or as a conditioner swap out for super thirsty hair. Amika Soulfood is a fave of mine because it is rich enough for dry, coarser hair, but also light enough for fine textured hair. (And it smells AMAZING!)
Feeling dry? Fighting static? Ask me, I’d be happy to help you find the right mask and care plan for you! #moisturemask #deepconditioner #dryhair #winterhairproblems #amikasoulfood #saginawstylist #halohairlife
Part 2 in healthy winter hair is CLEAN hair! Having a clean slate is so important in order for scalp care, conditioners and masks to work effectively! Not to mention build up leaves the hair in a vicious cycle of feeling dull, dirty, dry and limp. Redken Detox Cleansing Cream is a newer product and by far my favorite clarifying shampoo ever. It’s gentle yet extremely effective at removing build up caused by product, excess oil and pollution particles. I recommend this often specifically for its ability to remove build up from dry shampoo...all who lean on it heavily to get a few more days off between wash days say “I”! ✋ ME TOO! Feeling the need for a fresh start? Talk to me about how to work clarifying into rotation in your hair care routine! #cleanhair #winterhair #redkendetoxhaircleansingcream #clarify #halohairlife #saginawstylist #customhaircare
Let’s start at the root of healthy hair... healthy scalp!
I have clients daily looking for relief and care for their scalp...this is my go-to for all hair types, as it is formulated to help with a host of scalp ailments including dry/itchy/psoriasis/dermatitis/dandruff as well as those who deal with overly oily/oily dandruff. It soothes irritation, balances oil production, exfoliates, increases circulation, improves moisture, and feeds the scalp with amino acids, vitamins and micro nutrients. And this creates a thriving environment for rapid HAIR GROWTH!
Awaken Shampoo is botanical based, color safe, drug free, gluten free, sulfate free, and safe for daily use. I often recommend this as a seasonal shampoo swap out when scalp irritation flares, or as a weekly scalp facial! Thinking this may be for you too? Ask me, I’d be happy to help customize a scalp and hair care plan specifically for you! #scalpcare #scalpfacial #hairgrowth #surfaceawaken #winterhair #dryscalp #dandruffproblems #oilyscalpsolutions #saginawstylist #customhaircare
𝕨𝕚𝕟𝕥𝕖𝕣 𝕙𝕒𝕚𝕣 𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕔𝕦𝕖 Just like our skin gets noticeably parched in the winter, so does our hair and scalp...and just like our skin needs extra attention and a skincare adjustment, so does our haircare routine! Featured here is what I’m dubbing my winter hair trifecta! Each of these work independently and for different purposes-but are the ultimate bundle to address what’s ailing most! Dryness, dullness, itchy scalp, flaky scalp, build up, dandruff, static, limp hair, seasonal hair loss...the list goes on! If you are feeling like your hair is in a winter slump, it is! Join me this week as I highlight why I recommend these to clients DAILY and how they can benefit you! #haircareroutine #winterhaircaretips #scalpcare #clarify #deepclean #moisturize #hairmasks #saginawstylist #saginawmichigan #greatlakesbay
