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

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….
