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. 

Hair design

Small world. Dana use to work at Regis Hairstyles at the Galleria mall in Redondo Beach 20 years ago a month before I started.  I heard nothing but good things about her. Here it is 20 years later I finally got to meet her at Sola Salons where I work. She shares a studio with another #stylist.  She invited me to dinner a few weeks ago and after we started talking I figured out who she was. I like her so much. She is so positive and vibrant…I miss her when she isnt at work. 
She asked me to shave the back of her hair.  I decided to do a hair design.  This isnt the finshed work.  Her client showed up and I didnt get a chance to take a picture of the finished work….

Hello makeup 

Hello long time. I’m chasing life. I started taking fish oil about a month ago after my potasium defiency fiasco. My skin was dull dry and it looked ashy like I had been smoking a pack of cigarettes. I bought Mac liquid foundation and have been really good about using a skin lightner on my uneven skin patches. This is the results. I’m slowly looking better. My nephew did my makeup yesterday he always says auntie you do it wrong. He goes in and blends it for me so I dont look like a Cabbage Patch kid. I got my first compliment on my skin since I started using the fish oil. The girl at the beauty supply store told me that I looked like I had a glow.
I got my car back after it had been stolen and crashes into a pole. A week later some guy fell asleep behind the wheel and smashed my side rearview mirrow and broke it. It was so stressfull driving to work on the 91 fwy not being able to see. Later on that day I went to the 99 cent store bought a hand mirrow broke the handle and taped it up. It’s drivable. I still havent been reimbursed the money that was stolen from my bank. It has set me finacially in the dark. I opened a hair salon with no money. It all went to getting my  car back and running. I’m chasing life trying to maneuver how I’m going to go about it. I cant turn around. I’ve come too far I must be strong and keep the faith that I will succeed. Failure isnt an option.  We fall but we must get back up with all your fears, worries, stresses that come our ways. Emotions will always be there but time waits for no one.

Boss Babe

Chase your dreams. Learn to have faith in yourself, trust your intuition, limit your association with haters who are envious and jealous of you, count your blessings, pray, write down your goals, give without the intention to recieve, force yourself to forgive someone who has caused you deep pain, stay focussed, whatever you do do your best at doing it.  One day you will reach your dream..it took me 30 years  to have something to show for all my hard work as a hairstylist but I finally did it. I have my own Sola Salon Studio. This is one of the best things that could of ever happened to me. My work performance has gone up, I dont have to deal with gossipy coworkers in my buisness..I can work until whenever I want. I can color my gray hairs in privacy, listen to my choice of music, charge what I want. My dream doesnt end here. I still have to take the time to meet celebrity hairstylist Nick Chavez. We’ve been wanting to meet but we have busy life schedules. I thank all the instagram famous hairstylists like Larrisa Love, Nick Chavez, Guy Tang, Bescene and many more for inspiring me to leave the former salon I worked at. I still have to perfect taking hair pictures #thestruggleisreal. Its not easy taking hair pictures its harder than doing hair…but I’m improving. Thank you WordPress followers for reading my blog. Thank you for liking my pictures. Thank you for popping up in my modifications…because of you you’ve helped me to become a Boss Babe😉🖤

Hair extensions 

This is the difference between cheap hair extensions and expensive hair extensions.  They have both been shampoo notice how the one in the left looks like two birds got in a fight at a birds nest and the one on the right is smoother. The hair on the right is by the brand named SHE, when it comes to hair it’s best to spend good money and get the best than to spend  $110 every month or two on the cheaper brand. Do your research and ask lots of questions.
