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….

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 BabeđŸ˜‰đŸ–€

Metalic hair color

I used kenra metalic colors buy Guy Tang. I did high and low lights with bleach highlights on Dana and used level 7 metalic as the low lights. I shampooed it with the lavender Viral shampoo.  Here is what it looks like in different lighting. I’m pleasee with the results. It doesnt look orange.

Blond Bob Cut

This is today’s work. Her hair is naturally black. My friend here allowed me to do whatever I wanted, a couple of years later I made her blond..she doesn’t  mind..hehe…

Kenra metalics

This a Holly’s hair in the outdoor lighting. Hair color looks completely different in outdoor and indoor lighting. Let  me tell you taking hair pictures of hair is so much harder than doing the actual hair. There is no justice unless you use filters. I don’t like using filters on my hair color pictures as I feel like I’m cheating. Holly’s hair looked awesome when I was done but again you can’t tell the true colors on here. I’m going for the silver metalic hair color look on her. It’s the best color to blend your grays so when her hair grows out you don’t see the heavy line of demarcation. Non the less we were both happy with the hair color results..

Ps) Holly is my facial girl. She takes good care of my skin..we barter. Bartering is the best for service that are not in your budget😍

Before and after hair color 

I did this bleach color yesterday I toned it with Pm Shines level 9. When it comes to hair color it’s not as easy as it looks or sound. I can apply the same hair color on 5 different people and it will come out completely different on all 5. It all depends on the porosity and texture of the hair. Some clients don’t remember when  they last colored their hair, if the hair has five different prior  color jobs it will come out different  as well. If you are wanting to go blonder make sure that you take good care of you hair with protein and good moisturizing treatments before your next hair appointment. Do not use cheap hair products, invest in your hair it’s your crown and gloryâ˜ș  

Before and After

Fade cut on my young friend. I call him Debarge, he reminds me of the 80s family singing group. Who remembers the song  All This Love💕…this is his first ever fade cut. His mother has been cutting his hair since he was little..he went to a another barber but the barber isn’t familiar with his type of hair.  It took me about and hour or longer to cut his hair due to good wholesome spiritual encouraging conversations. I don’t have much left to say except that I’m beat..looong day…ZzzzzZzzzzzzzz..
