Did you know fall is my favorite season to do hair? I love all seasons, but fall has my heart.

Blondes become warmer, brunettes get more depth, brondes becomes copper or honey 🍂🍁✨

For Jessica, it meant adding a slight lowlight and warming her bright blonde from summer. We are both in LOVE .

Bright Blonde isn’t manufactured in one service!

Although we can create full transformations in one big service, blonde is best done in sessions.

If you don’t feel like you are bright enough from a full highlight, consider how often you are scheduling your visits.

If you get highlighted 2x a year, your services aren’t making maximum impact. After 2 months, your highlighting service is considered maintenance, not enhancement.

What does this mean?

At the 2 month mark or later, your hair artist will be retouching the highlights you currently have that have grown out. If your goal is to be brighter, your next blonding session should be scheduled no later than 5-8 weeks. This allows us to focus on brightening your hair along with bringing up your current highlight technique.

On average, I recommend a full highlight, 6week partial highlight, 6 week face frame highlight, 4-6 week gloss, then full highlight. This is a plan for 1 year of color. This can be modified based off of your goals and integrity of hair.

As always, conditioning treatments, haircuts, and proper at home care should be utilized to maintain healthy hair! I’m always here to help break down and explain things! Write some of your questions in the comments below! ✨

With all the business of bridal season, it’s always a sweet moment to step back behind the chair and do what I call, “being a normal hair artist for the day” 😂

Aside from bridal, I have taken master colorist courses, and getting my hands back into color projects always feels like home. 🏡💗

It’s crazy looking at the years of experience I’ve racked up when it comes to color. It truly does fly by! Every year I’ve focused so hard on growing + learning, that I almost forget what I’ve even walked through to be where I’m at 😂🥲

Just know, when I return to you guys behind the chair after + in between bridal season, I come back to you with excitement, peace, and creativity. Your hair becomes the project that connects me to my passion and creativity. Thanks to all, new and old friends, who come to my chair 🥰💗

I cannot reiterate enough how passionate I am about adding accessories to your bridal hair styles✨✨✨

The way I see it is, you can transform styles we’ve seen on Pinterest to something completely unique to YOU. Taking something simple, and elevating it to art.

Such a fun moment getting an old friend ready for her wedding. I am so grateful for the job I have and how it allows me to be involved in some incredible and rewarding moments like these! Swipe to see some quick behind the scenes of Susanna’s hair. ✨

My Jessica ✨

Remember when Jess went rose gold for a minute?! (Last slide)

The second to last photo was our first color correction step to take Jess back lighter for her summer shade!

The third photo is the grow out from Jess’s initial color correction step and a few touch ups! During her touch ups leading up to her blonding session, we prepped her with renewal treatments to keep her hair strong and healthy as she is a level 3 that likes to be blonde! 🙈

Going forward we will be using hair alchemy and gold lust to keep her hair in its best condition

! We are both looking forward to one more blonding session before summer and we are thanking for the tools and maintenance to keep her hair strong and healthy along the way!
