Golden Globes 2013

The Golden Globes 2013 surely didn’t disappoint when it came to old Hollywood glamour. There were a lot of side swept long waves and side waves pinned up at the bottom.

These do’s for me are like heroin. I love them and can’t get enough.

Big Hair Dallas

After a long hiatus from the curling iron I’ve been seeing a resurgence of curled hair and much to my delight BIG hair. Big hair Dallas is kind of a laughed at stereotype known all over the country, but it happens to be true. Yesterday I had a client ( who is in her 20’s) come …


Men’s Cuts | Dallas

Meandering around the internet this morning I came upon a great new site calledqueer in the Just a few friends getting together and experimenting with food and ways to keep it healthy. I love this site. It reminds me of the days when as stylist we would,and sometimes still do, get together and brain storm new techniques and cool promos for our salon. Then I realized that Ive neglected my mens clientele by not talking about mens cutsDallas in my blog. No offense guys.Aside from all the color and extensions I do on my female clients I also have a pretty healthy client base of men. When I used to be able to grow a full head of hair I was one of those “picky” queens when it came to my hair. Consequetnly I could not find anyone that could cut my hair the way I liked it, so I did it myself. As karma would have it my pickiness probably led to my loss of hair, but I digress.Ive been doing hair since the days of Methuselah and Ive seen many clients come and go. Many styles come in and out of fashion, female and male. Remember the Rick Astley pompadour or the Vanilla Ice fade? Well theyre both back and its hard to believe that Ive actually been in the industry that long to see a full cycle. Yikes! IM ONLY 41 YEARS OLD!!!Here at The Beauty Box Salon we do specialize in color and hair extensions but that doesnt mean we dont do mens cuts as well. At least I do. And hey, if you want some weave put up on your dome I can do that as well. Im not a barber so Im not able to shave anyones face (thank god because those razors scare me).Check me out at

Emmy’s 2012 | The Hair

This years Emmy awards were filled with hot and not so hot fashion and a lot of hair extensions.The designer gowns, towering stilettos, glittering gems and weave are back.Red Carpet mainstays Nicole Kidman, Zooey Deschanel, Tina Fey, Sofia Vergara, Claire Danes and the lovely ladies of “Mad Men,” among others, all of whom never fail to dazzle us with fashion as well as popping in a few extra pieces of hair for that sexy bombshell look.Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum ramped up the sizzle Sunday night in sexyslitupto“there” gowns. And chartreuse (yellow) made it to the red carpet on Julianne Moore and Claire Danes. Danes of course never fails to look drop dead gorgeous. And on top of it all she’s pregnant. I love her.Kelly Osbournewore one of the most expensive accessory at the Emmy Awards. No, it was not her lavender gown, hair color, or her jewelry. It was her black diamond fingernail polish that costs $250,000 for just one bottle. A very extravagant polish that’s going to end up soaked into a cotton ball and thrown into the trash can. YIKES! How about buying someone a condo instead?The biggest wow of the evening for me was Tina Fey. I’ve never seen her looking so gorgeous on a red carpet. She definitely got it right this time.All in all the awards ceremony was in my opinion fantastic. Everyone brought major fashion credibility to the Nokia Theatre, even if they werent necessarily my favorites.

Miley Cyrus’ New Do

I know I’m a little late with the news that Miley Cyrus got a new do but I’m just so in love with it that I feel it deserves mention. The one time disney princess is now all grown up and taking charge of her look. No better way to do so than to bleach …


Managing Your Expectations

In the beginning of a career in the hair industry we as stylist/colorist are taught many things. We learn how to weave foil into the hair in many different ways. We learn cutting techniques and how to do a great blow out. Invaluable information no doubt. The one thing that we don’t learn to do …


Hand Painted Hair | Balayage and Ombre

I have to admit that I can be a little slow to hop on a trend. I’m kind of a traditionalist when it comes to most things. But now that we’re seeing a strong trend for the Ombre look I decided to re-look at the Balayage effect. Of course I prefer to call it something …
