Angled Bob haircut

This is Julie. I had  to recut her hair on Saturday. I left it choppy a few days before..I was running behind and rushed her. I could feel the piercing glances through the mirror from my next client who was waiting in the lobby area. Energy speaks louder than words. Funny Julie was playing on her cell and she too could feel the negative vibrations.  You can’t squeeze every in..some clients want ALL your attention and get jealous if you spend to much time on someone else. 
I colored and cut Julie’s hair…her hair is resistant and pulls a lot of red. I’ve been controlling her red tones by doing low lights. I use a level 7 ash and do bleach highlites as well. And here you have the finish look tada!

So inspired 

This is Phillip he’s a famous Instagram hairstylist who does models and actresses. My dream was to have the chance to work with him two years ago when I met him at the supply store. My dreams came true. I even got to cut his hair twice and he loved it. He tells me that I’m a good hairstylist.  He was kind enough to teach me some hair tricks and share his secret formulas with me. I mean who does that!!..Some hairstylist can be so petty. Not him. He inspired me to raise my prices, what I charge he charges tripple..Ive been selling myself short for so many years. The girls at Solas Salons work half the time that I do and they are driving in name brand baller cars taking vacations while I’m over here overworked burned out killing my body. One painful lesson I’m learning is that charging cheap prices because you feel sorry for people when they tell you pitiful stories of how broke they are does not guarantee loyalty. They will drop kick you and leave you for someone else in a hot minute. I’ve been doing hair for 30 years I think its time I start spoiling myself with vacation, houses and diamonds.  Not only are we hairstylists we are straight up counselors, therapists and everything else. My studio has become a congressional.  As soon as I tell people that my glass slidding doors are sound proof  I get dumped on😂….
Be careful how you speak the choice in words you use about yourself. You can sabotage your dreams by lacking self worth. Force yourself to think positive don’t be a envious hater be good to others and forgive..then you will see life bring good vibrations in your life. Phillip left Solas and opened his own salon, his last day was Saturday. I was so sad. He’s so amazingly humble and adorable. He left me with the fire to better myself to think highly and to not settle for less than I deserve.

Before and after hair color

It took 3 hours to get it like this.  It’s a lot of work. This is $200 job but she gave me $140..I.told her  $150 but she was short on cash. I’m following my first gut instinct to charge what the job is worth instead of charging cheap and then walking around all resentful. Charge your worth. At the end of the day if you are late to an appointment they will drop kick you and go somewhere else.

Makeup 

I just did this before and after makeover on my friend..I’ve always wanted to do more makeup but it’s so expensive and tedious…the reward is worth it when you see the big smile on the client’s face.😍

Smooth feet

I’ve tried everything in the past 7 years to get my feet smooth like I use to have back in the day. As women get older all kind of changes happen to us..whether it’s just aging, medications, alcohol, menopause you name it. I’ve tried oils, scrubs, lotions..nothing worked. I rubbed some Vicks on my feet and they stayed smoothe for a week. I apply it twice a week the most and it gets the job done! Also perfect for headaches..I rub a little on my forehead and my headache goes away in less than a hour.

Eyebrow waxing

I finally had my eyebrows waxed by Raquel. I was walking around with serial killer eyebrows..I had to let them grow out before she could shape them. She works at my suite on Tuesdays on my day off.  Always apply organic sunscreen right after you’ve been waxed to the waxed area so that you won’t get dark spots  (sun damage)…try not to get waxes at nail shops. They don’t

in eyebrows..they’ll rip them out all thin have you looking like a carnival clown.

Blond Latina 

This did not happen over nite her hair is black. I like to take my time and blonde people out. Yes it’s possible to do it over nite but I like to pay attention to how the hair is going to react with the #bleach.  I recommend that you do a deep conditioner at home or in the salon if you can a day or two before your blonding sessions. Keep your ends trimmed and take lots of vitamins. Dont forget to drink lots of water as well. 

Lighting 

This goes to show how hair color looks completely different in pictures. No flash and flash. This is a new client I bleached out her whole entire head with foils instead of applying it all over the scalp  and hair. Her hair color was that of a golden blond. She had color on it. It’s best to work on virgin hair. You can get the hair blonder quicker. The last time I did bleach on the roots it was a disaster. The girl’s hair melted off. I will never do that again. Since then I’ve discovered the joico protein pre treatment, it makes a big difference. It helps protect the hair and it’s cheaper than olaplex. I worked on her hair for 4 hours.  It was a $300 dollar job but I only charged her $160. I’m slowly getting better at raising my prices and charging my worth. I don’t use cheap products. These issues take time.  Little by little I’m raising my prices one client at a time.
