Disney Princess Hair...

All those pretty Princesses and their flowing pretty hair... WE ALL WANT IT! 

 And some of us are lucky enough to be able to pull off the perfect red hair! Like this client below. Don't you love it!? (I can't take credit for doing this color this time around...  This is her second time in and the stylist remembered to snap a picture.)  But when this client came in the first time and requested red hair I had the pleasure of having her in my chair. When she told me what she wanted, at first I questioned it... are you sure you want little mermaid hair? YEP! I am so happy with how it turned out and just as happy the second time when I got to visit with her again.
Also this client reminds me of why I love my job! She made such and impression on me and was a pleasure to meet and talk with.

Chi Enviro Smoothing Treatment

Want to make your hair 95% less frizzy?.......... YES
Want to make your curly hair more manageable?.......... YES
Want to make your hair shine?........... YES
Want to make your hair silky, soft, and conditioned?........ YES
Want to take less time blow drying your hair?........ YES
Want all of the above and for it to last up to 4 months?....... YES

Well you should try this new smoothing system by Chi, it's amazing! I took a class last week and I am now certified to preform the Chi ultimate blowout service in the salon.

Look at my before and after...



What is the Chi Blowout? 
From the manufacturer's website: 
CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment is a revolutionary safe treatment. It eliminates up to 95% of frizz while making curly hair more manageable. It instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair. The results of this safe alternative to traditional harsh straightening systems are amazing. The system safely smoothes frizzy, curly hair into beautiful, soft and silky hair. When the powerful, yet gentle, formula is combined with heat from the CHI Iron and dryer the hair is bonded, providing incredible results.
This revolutionary smoothing system infuses the unique formula of amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl into the hair’s cuticle. This process dramatically improves the condition, shine and smoothness of even the most unruly hair types. Results typically lasts up to 4 months depending on hair type.
I'll be honest I was a bit skeptical when I went into the class,  it sounds too good to be true! But I must admit I was very pleased with the results and I am now a believer. All the girls in the salon now want it done on our own hair! Another great thing is that it can be done on most hair types. If you are going on vacation or a busy Mom that doesn't have a lot of time to spend on their hair and want your hair more manageable this is the perfect treatment for you.

I can't wait to see you there!

A Goal and My Attempt to Recreate....

I've had a goal for awhile now but haven't done it for one reason or the other. My goal is to get inspiration from pinterest, youtube, google...etc. and try and recreate it. I think this goal is good for a couple of reasons.
1.It's always good to try new things
2. It's good to challenge ourselves and get out of our comfort zone.
3. It will get my creative juices flowing... (they have been a little rusty lately) and lets be honest no one wants a hairstylist that is stuck in a rut, and only does the same two haircuts or styles on everyone.
4. I will make mistakes... it's just bound to happen. As long as I learn from my mistakes they will be discoveries and opportunity to grow.
4. With practice I will become a better hairstylist and it will help me with my every day to day clients.


So with that being said I watched a youtube video today and took a stab at it.


The a few discoveries I learned from this are...
1. I really wish my doll head had blond hair!
2. Because she has brown hair I should have used black hair ties.
3. Because she has brown hair I wish I would have left it nice and smooth instead of adding the crimping in there. When I crimped the hair it just turned out looking like a rats nest instead of how it looks in the youtube movie.
4. I think I would like to add braids in somewhere if I did this again.

Ok so now it's your turn to challenge me... send me a picture or a clip of something you would like me to try and recreate and I will post it here on the blog... READY GO!!

Back to School Kids Cuts

I don't know if I've told you or not but I am back in the Salon and I Love it!! I work at the Jcpenney salon at the Provo town center.

This August we are doing $10 kids cuts for back to school which is an awesome deal!

I thought it would be fun to share some ideas for little kids... here a a few pictures I found.

Girls Cuts
 If your little girl has some curl in her hair embrace it (as shown with the little girl holding the makeup brush) this will make your mornings a lot easier, plus it's so cute! Products you will need is a light gel to hold it in place and make it less freeze.

The bob cut always looks cute and fresh on little girls. You can ware the bob with some bangs or with out. This style will require you to blow dry with a round brush. You'll want to remember to use a heat protectant in the hair if you are blow-drying or using the flat iron.

Long hair is also fun but will require you to spend some time styling it or you'll probably end up with a tangled mess. The nice thing about long hair is the amount of different styles you can do. If you need help looking for ideas pinterest has lots or YouTube (click here for one of my favorite ones).

Boys Cuts
I love how the style is to have little boys hair a little bit longer and messy. Boys ruff and tumble anyways so the messy look is perfect! As far as styling products a light Gel or a wax will go a long way with any of these styles. These styles are going to be quick and easy to get ready each morning for school.

Thank you for stopping by my page! Please remember to follow me and I hope to see you in my salon soon! Please call to make an appointment at 801-852-3530

Easter Weekend Makeup

I am so happy that it's Easter time and Spring time! Spring Time is my FAVORITE time of the year.

While looking at pinterest I came across this beauty -------------->
I wish I knew who the makeup artist was so I could give them some credit and pick their brain on what products they used... but I am coming up empty handed in my search.

However I thought it would be fun to share what products I would use to try and recreate it.

LIPS- I would use Snob from M.A.C

CHEEKS- I would use HD Microfinish Blush in First Kiss - bright apricot by Make up For Ever

EYES- 44 LASH by M.A.C, Urban Decay Eye-shadow Primer, Rule eye-shadow by M.A.C and Shroom eye-shadow by M.A.C

Let me know if you try it out and what products you ended up using... I would love to see it!!
                                                                                                                        Have a Happy Spring DAY!
