Perfection. At Last. Breathe Easy.

Finally after all the controversy of formaldehyde in the Brazilian Keratin treatments that supposedly lead to health risks because of the harmful fumes, Pravana has created the ultimate SAFE smoothing treatment! And the best thing of all, you can shampoo your hair THE SAME DAY!  Perfection SmoothOut employs a proprietary Nano-Amino Complex that safely alters the internal textural memory of the hair fiber to transform it to a smoother, straighter, frizz-free state that lasts 8 to 12 weeks. Perfection's low pH formula contains no harsh chemicals and is safe to use on all hair types.  How great is that?!  So you want perfect hair?  That sleek, smooth, sensuous look that defines confidence with out all the potentially harmful fumes and health hazards? Somehow it's always been out of reach until NOW.
 
Perfection at last. Breathe easy.

Premiere Orlando International Beauty Event

I just came back from the Orlando Hair Show!  And I have Tons of new feather extensions, micro link and clip in! Also, bling your hair with bling strands, tinsel for hair or add rhinestones!  Pimping your hair is the hottest trends at the shows this year, call me today to get yours!  All of the hair bling is semi-permanent and lasts thru washing, and even flat ironing!  I am totally loving all these options and best yet they are affordable!  If you noticed all the celebs hair recently shining with bling thats because these extensions are sweeping the Hollywood scene!  Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Love Hewitt are all rocking bling strands or feather extensions! They're gentle on the hair too, so you won't have to worry about damage!  Get it on the trend, be subtle or go all out, it's up to you!

TOOLS!

As a professional I know how important it is to have the proper tools. Such as blow dryers, flat iron, curling iron, brushes and PRODUCTS! It wasn't until recently when I realized how important investing in these necessities really is.  I know I've heard it a million times my clients say they wish their hair would come out the same when they did it themselves, I know the majority of my clientelle respects my recommendations and uses the suggested products...so why are they having such a hard time?  Can you believe I recently visited my family in Chicago and forgot to bring my TOOLS?! What a nightmare, it was then I realized how vital quality equipment is...and why people have such a difficulty creating the same salon look.  Even though my family has the best of the best products, their tools were hardly up to par!  1 (wrong sized) round brush, not to mention the bristles were practically disinegrated, a HORRIBLE blow dryer that was not even close to being hot enough or powerful enough and a flat iron that pulled my hair and didn't even straighten it, needless to say I looked like...I did my hair myself!  Not only was is TIME CONSUMING, my hair was frizzy and I looked like I was wearing a wig!  No wonder clients are having issues I am certain they are using the same common tools the average person is using, so no matter how great the product, if the tools are not above standard it will cause quite frustration! Moral of the story...want your hair to look like it was professionally styled, in half the time, with less damage?!  Ask me about professional tools and recommendations that are RIGHT for YOUR hair type!  I personally use the CHI blow dryer (which is ceramic, ionic and infrared technology, that protects against damage) and GHD Flat Iron, I prepare my hair with MoroccanOil shampoo and conditioner and style with Redken products!  Although professional tools are a little more expensive, look at it as an investment! Your hair will thank you!

Balayage & Ombre Techniques

 Say good bye to bleach blondes and un-natural highlights!  The new look of highlights is soft and subtle!  You can acheive this look with the Balayage technique.  Balayage is a hair coloring technique which is designed to create very natural-looking highlights which grow out without developing a noticeable and obvious root. Developed by the French to create a natural highlight, the process includes the use of a brush to hand-paint a thick mixture of lightener onto a section of hair using one of three paint designs. These designs are Singles, Slants and V's. A "sweeping" motion is used to apply lightener from thin at the roots to thicker towards the ends. The Balayage technique provides ultimate control over color application, and allows for less outgrowth and more contrast in the hair. The result is the most natural looking highlights ever. Since the process requires no heat or foils, the hair is left in superb condition, and without any stripes due to the elimination of foil "lines".  Think Victoria Secret!! HOT!! The balayage starts at only $40!  These highlights are BEAUTIFUL!! Want more of a dramatic effect?  OMBRE is a balayage tecnique, daker roots, lighter ends, think Drew Barrymore!  The possiblities are endless and my clients are loving this look and I know you will too!

Everybody was wearing them, selling them & promoting them! They are HOT!  The Feather Extensions are real feathers available in an array of colors that are applied to your hair to add subtle or dramatic highlights without damage or altering color!  A new and simple chemical-free technique utilizes silicone bead technology which allows the feather extensions to be applied safely!  And becasue they come in array of colors, there is no limit to the imagination or desired effect!  Best yet...Feather extensions will not fatique under styling conditions, they can be washed, dried, flat ironed or curled! They last up to 8 weeks in the hair  but they last a life time and can be use over and over again!  These ROCK and are now available by ME!  The other hair accessory is the Hair BLING!  The new Bling trend is IN!!  It's attached with a flat iron! The materials are safe and non-toxic, heat resistant and durable!  They can also be blow dried, flat ironed or curled! They last up to serveral weeks in the hair!  I am also offering the Bing Strand Clip Ins!!  I am sooo excited about these new trends! Give me a call to experience feather extensions & bling strands!
