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 [...]
The Beauty Box Salon
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 [...]
The last photo in our wedding series is the actual wedding itself. For this I sat back for a bit and let the rest of the team get their hands in there and create. There was a point where I saw something in in what they were creating and at that point I asked if [...]
Yesterday I had the pleasure of rocking out a fantastic photo shoot with the Beauty Box team. It was a very long day but it was well worth it. I’m very proud of our team.
Here are my top 5 style finds this week. 5. Off centered french braid. LOVE! 4. Mad Men inspired pin curled style. 3. 30′s inspired Carole Lombard look 2. A fun long pixie cut with long fringe. 1. A fantastic short cut with a light blonde color. I love this.
Not to long ago I was waxing about the good old days when I started in the hair biz and remembering how hot french braiding was really hot. One trend from the 80′s that I never thought would make it back into fashion. Well the time has come. Braiding is back with a vengeance. [...]
Is this a good sign or not a good sign? Barbara Walters is wearing hair extensions. I noticed today on The View that Ms. Walters hair was a little thicker on the sides than normal. Of course I’m probably the only one who noticed. I’m not opposed to the elderly using extensions to improve their [...]
The drug store brands are designed for easy pick up but rarely do they give the results they promise.
Our extension wearing, Ombre look style beauty Giuliana Rancic is undergoing a double mastectomy. Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of months ago and underwent a double lumpectomy and now is choosing to undergo a double mastectomy. “At the end, all it came down to was choosing to live and not looking over [...]

I think this is a long time coming. One of the silver screens most enigmatic woman turned princess, Princess Grace of Monaco is the subject of a new movie in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, European producer Pierre-Ange Le Pogam has won the rights to an in-demand spec script about one of Oscar winner Grace Kelly’s [...]
I love this. Your run of the mill bustier from Fredricks of Hollywood circa 1987 can resell for a small fortune. Of course the most famous woman in the world at the time had worn it. Madonna’s bustier from her 1987 Who’s That Girl world tour has sold for $72,000. The Daily Mail reports that the tasseled top [...]
This is something that has baffeled me all through my career. Going to work while sick. As a hairdresser I work in close contact with people. In my opinion it is not a good idea when you have a cold or especially the flu to be in close contact with people. Not to mention it’s [...]
There seems to be a trend lately to do un-nessessary work on people. Instead of working simply and efficiently with hair color to achieve a look they are doing un-nessessary complex techniques so they can charge more for the service. This seems to be a trend here in Dallas. In the last month I’ve see [...]
Who run the world? Well Beyonce’ would like to think she does and I think most of her fans would as well. I like her and her music but I would like to see her with more of her natural hair color. I love her as a blonde however in my opinion her skin tone [...]
In the 1800s, chemists discovered para-phenylenediamine (PPD) and its use in the creation of synthetic dye. At the same time, it was found that hydrogen peroxide was a gentler and safer chemical for hair bleaching. These two discoveries paved the way for Eugene Schueller, who created the first commercial chemical hair dye, which he christened [...]
Okay guys, what is up with your hair? I’m not against the “metrosexual” male but I think your flat iron and desire to do something different with your hair has gone a bit far. I realize that this is just my opinion but I just think these are bad men’s hairstyles. First we have the [...]
Pink hair seems to be hot these days. Katy Perry is doing it and now even Barbie is sporting the pink hair. Barbie’s hair is obvioulsy synthetic and that’s always a choice but Katy Perry on the other hand is done by using a semi-permanent color. Ealier this year it looks like she had been in [...]
I do not like Christina Aguilera‘s giant hair. I’m not sure what she’s going for, but the bigger you get physically doesn’t mean you should make your hair into a monster. She’s obviously not trying to hide her weight gain by wearing clothes so I’m not sure why she feels the need to have all [...]
Durring my daily watching of E news I saw an interview with Milla Jovovich. She has the cutest short bob that I haven’t seen in 20 years. She is a perfect example of someone with really fine hair. She could use extensions to make it long and beautiful like just about everyone else these days [...]
