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. 

Purple ombre

I don’t know if I posted this picture or not, just got done with work. Long day. I did this last nite..I love when my clients send me selfies. I enjoy doing all the fun colors..I feel like  a kid playing with playdo.ūüėÄ

Blue nails 

I’m so happy with my nails. I got a fill today I’m making an effort to take better care of myself. I noticed the other Sola Salon owners have cute nails. When you fix yourself on the outside you start to feel good inside. I wear acrylic nails for a year then I let them rest for a year. This is my second time getting them done in the past couple of months.

Hardest glue ever

This is the strongest hardest glue I’ve ever used in my hair. I shampooed my hair, gelled it back into a ponytail with this and it lasted me for four days. I had to shampoo the gel out before I could do my color retouch. I did not have to worry about combing my hair for those four days. This is a good way to grow my hair out and give it a  break from flatironing it. I also stopped using no lye relaxers I learned that it breaks the hair off!! That explains a lot. I started using regular no base relaxers again. 

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. 

Racism and skin color 

These are my sisters in faith. I want to show you how skin and looks has nothing to do with who or what you are. My friend Trish on the left with the blue eyes has black in her. He mother was biracial black and Irish and her father 100% German. She showed me pictures of her mother. Her mother definitely looked like a mixed woman.  Her hair gave it away big time. You could tell she could of used a realaxer or a press and curl. She was a littke darker than me. The point I’m making is this, people are so caught up in stirring racism hatred. Its the dumbest thing ever. You dont know what people are based on their looks. Judge people individually not by what the news stirs up. Instead of ridding the racism train talk to people get to know their background..let go of the baggage. Just let that mess go!
