Thinning hair Dallas? If you’ve ever seen or met me you would understand that a bald man talking about Nioxin products that prevent thinning hair may be a bit laughable.
The Sarah Potempa Beachwaver rotating styling wand has made it to Dallas. The Beauty Box Salon now carries the hottest new styling tool by far.
Tape in hair extensions in Dallas are really taking off. I’d like to think mainly because we at The Beauty Box Salon have been leading the push into these amazing extensions
Congratulations AVEDA for finally coming to the world of hair extensions. The new AVEDA hair extensions are called VoMor hair.
As a hair professional I’m here to help you feel as good about yourself and your look as I possibly can. This can involve many things. A haircut, a color, a great style out and even beautiful hair extensions. Some people hear the words Hair Exten…
A word that people do not ever want to hear. Especially when they want what they want. I unfortunately have to say this word a lot in my business.
I have been neglecting my blog lately. So much so that I just published my syndicated blogs from January from the Beauty Box website today. OY! It’s sometimes hard to find things exclusively hair and beauty related to blog about so today I’m playing it by ear and trying a more free thought approach. But [...]
The Most Anticipated Hair Trends For Spring 2013″Outré hairstyles are fun to look at but dont necessarily translate well off the runway when you don’t have a team of stylists at the ready. This season, there was no question that wearable looks had a major presence. Thats not to say creativity wasnt on full display—we saw new ways to wear your ponytail (think low and wide), braid your braid (try a crisscross direction), slick your part and tie a knot (tight!). And perhaps the most captivating trend this season? Hair accessories inspired by everything from blossoming flowers to sporty bands to beekeepers headpieces, for when you want to just slip something on and make a statement.”http://www.harpersbazaar.com/beauty/hairarticles/spring2013hairtrends#slide8A little snippet from this months Harpers Bazaar.com.It seems like its going to be all about the low pony and the bun this spring, with a french braid thrown in for a little pizzaz. I like this. Its neat and tidy. Polished without being severe. Fun, and takes less effort than going through the blow out and curl process.There is one thing about this thats hitting me a bit sideways. Women are already doing this! Have been for many months, so I dane to ask what is really new? Do the fashion magazines always get it right?Here in Texas we have a somewhat short or lack there of, of a winter. Not surprisingly, styles dont fluctuate severely from spring/summer to fall/winter. Maybe a low light or two thrown in for good measure at the first sign of cold weather. Just to give it that touch of autumn. Then lightening it back up again in the spring causing damage and setting yourself up for a much needed haircut.I would really l like to see something more. Something truly revolutionary. I would like to see a softer blonde. Lets come out of our bleach cloud and find softness in the hair again. Growing out all of the previous damage done by over processing and hair color trend changing (which I never liked anyway).When I think spring I think renewal. I think shine and movement. Soft color with some soft waves. Maybe a braid or two. Giving a break to or putting away all together that over used flat iron. Replacing it with soft air dried or maybe hot rolled hair.Dont get me wrong, I love blonde hair and sometimes bleach blonde. But in my opinion its time to stop playing with different colors in the hair like its Crayola, or bleaching it to DEATH and never allowing it to grow and be healthy. Id love the trend to turn around and just be healthy beautiful hair. Long or short. Straight or wavy. Whatever, as long as its healthy.
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.
The 70th annual Golden Globe awards this year were as stylish and flashy as ever. This year I noticed that old Hollywood glamour was the theme of the night. There were lots of long side waves, ponytails, and sculpted 30’s inspired updo’s.Th…
Tis the season for all things warm, fuzzy and formal. It never fails that December seems like the shortest month because our calendar is filled with shopping and parties and all of the things that go along with it.Updo’s may seem old fashioned, b…
Wednesday December 5th from 6pm until 9pm The Beauty Box Salon and Butterfly Kiss Wine will be hosting a “ladies night out”. A night of pampering with complimentary hair styling and polish changes, oh and wine as well.
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 [...]
Meandering around the internet this morning I came upon a great new site calledqueer in the kitchen.com. 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 athttp://bradbykkonen.com/services/
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.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
