When I left work on Friday night (at 9pm) there were 9 runway models in the salon getting “1950s blonde” in preparation for Saturday night’s Alexander Wang Spring 2013 show. My bosses, who are both colorists, work closely with a few modeling agencies here in New York. They get a call from the models’ agent, and get a mere word/phrase of what they need their color to look like for that particular job. In this case it was 1950s blonde, but really anything could be used to describe what the end result needs to look like. They get food, decades/eras, celebrities, art, movies, etc for their guidance. In this industry, it’s so important to know pop culture, art, fashion and anything else that a client would use for inspiration. You want a good general knowledge of those kinds of things so that you can keep them happy, no matter how crazy their description seems!

Maybe it’s Lucille Ball red, maybe it’s Brigitte Bardot waves, maybe it’s butter blonde, Roman Holiday chop, or a 1970s fringe…nothing feels better than being on the same page as your client.

Now let’s look at these 1950s blondes. This show looked amazing, wish I could have been there.


PS protect your blonde ends with my favorite argan oil.

Today I’m here to report a magical, miraculous power my hair has.

And that is….

My hair can make it rain.

All I have to do is blow dry my hair straight, and it will be raining, I’m talking catsing and dogsing within 12 hours.

When the left photo was taken, it was nothing but summer sun and clear skies. The photo on the right was taken the next morning, when the old man was definitely snoring and I had to go outside for a few seconds.

Does anyone else have this kind of magical hair? Does anyone know how to monetize such a gift?

My solution? Throw in a quarter size amount of Je Veux and do a once over taking big sections with my blow dryer and brush. I’m like the first picture again. Until it’s time to go outside.

Coping with hard water.

Both times I’ve been to Europe, I’ve noticed that the water is very hard on my hair. While I was in London, I only shampood once in an attempt to prevent drying out my hair. My hair just seems to be more brittle than the average Jane’s, so maybe this is more of a problem for me than most.

So along with cutting down on shampooing, product is also a great way to lock in some extra moisture. Here are my favorite hair oils!

Redken Glass

Je Veux Argan Oil

SachaJuan Shine Serum

Aussie Smoothing Serum

I call products like these “Hair Drinks”.

Give your hair a drink when it’s thirsty!

PS I had a wonderful time in London and I am so excited to show you some photos from my trip!
