Expertise

Ready to color your hair, and don't have a single clue on how to start? I will try my best to guide you in your new or old hair color venture, whether you are going to a professional or trying to do it yourself. If you are going to see a professional I can help by answering all questions regarding your initial consultation, what to say to your colorist, how to describe what your wishes are and well talk about realistic expectations. Everything starts with a good conversation; learn how to discuss hair color in terms which make sense to a colorist.

Experience in the area

I started as a young assistant at Vidal Sassoon in 1982 and got the training that has always sustained me throughout my professional life. I first became involved in hair color in the mid 80s when I realized that my passion for painting was a vehicle understanding hair color. I joined the industry of hair color teaching and began a career as a platform artist in 1991. The next 25 years, took me across the USA and North America doing all hair shows, demonstrations on both hair cutting and hair coloring. I went from regional education, to national, eventually crossing into North America and being promoted as the USA Artistic Director for It&lyhairfashion, N.A. My hair salon is an award-winning destination for hair expertise, and I am proud to say that I have one of the most elite hair expert teams working for me.

Hi Jen    Yes, I see that the hair has some parts that are darker. But it does look good. You've been working on this quite some time. Indeed I can understand how your dark 2/3 level has gone to this.

Hi Jen    The answer would best be served if I could see and feel your hair. Is it straight, curly, are you Hispanic, White, Asian, African-American....these things matter and serve to better answer this

2016-11-09 Bleach processing time:

Hi Julia    In truth, there are no faster acting bleaches. A decolorizing powder may have a faster action only based on the amount of ammonia it contains, having said that, we look for less ammonia in
