Hello From Sunny Santa Monica

It has been a few weeks since my last post, and so much has happened. Right at the moment I am hanging in the hostel by the beach here in Santa Monica, CA. I am here for the week training at Toni&Guy’s Advanced Academy. The day’s have been full of mad cutting and crazy colouring. I have gained new confidence in the skills I had already on top of a whole new look into the world of hair colour. I am excited to bring this back to my clientelle. I am hoping to have the opportunity to move people in a new direction with their hair. I think hair and especially colour has come along way from the basic highlight. Colour placement in a variety of tonal blends provides me with the ability to create something completely unique as well as functional. Lets be honest when you think Hollywood you think beautiful, And that is the hair that you need and I can provide. Keep posted here for some amazing Pictures of my experience here. Look forward to returning to my home and bringing a new palette of ideas.

Pleased to meet you! Photo Shoot results

  Do you ever get so focused on things that your losing sleep? lately I have been blinded by my goals and i am losing track of time. Now it may sound bad to be blind, although in the world today if you do not achieve to the point where your losing track of time due to constant inspiration you are not working hard enough.  I am privaleged to consider my daily job my passion, and I dedicate everything to fueling that passion. Right now I am taking a break from making  hairpieces for a shoot this sunday, it’s midnight, and im writing about my job to who knows who stumbles upon a random blog. Photo shoot aside I take my job in the salon seriously as well, striving to produce new ways to promote what I do. The feeling I get when i successfully communicate and technically execute a “look” that fits the lifestyle and most importantly makes someone look and feel wonderful is incomparable. Doing anything fashion related very rarely has that personal touch and time is less available on set or backstage to build relationships.

 So all of that being said, I am hoping that tis reaches someone If you are in Vancouver and happen upon my blog keep updated as I will be introducing new salon promotions as well as news and portfolio updates for everyone. New clients receive an automatic 15% off their first visit , However if you’re coming into the salon for the first time because you also lost track of time reading blogs and you  tell me you have been here  and read every last page, haha, I’ll Up that to 25% off your first visit.

 Back on track with my portfolio and my newest additions they are dope.  Here is a taste.

Sundays Gone. Another productive week

After my first week at the new shop, and another sunday full of styling models at Whitebox Studios; I am exhausted. The new salon is getting comfortable quickly, all the minor adjustments are becoming normal. I feel like today at the Studio was another valuable day, I managed to come up with some unique styles and worked with yet again a wonderful team, thanks to all the models and Albert king as well as his assistant Karla Lim and Make-up artist Cindy Chan. Keep posted for two Sundays worth of amazing work from all of us as wll as links.

Love those long days of locks~hair hair hair

With a weekend out of the salon and some free time comes photo shoot central. At about 6:30 this morning I was styling model Florences’ hair at city square mall on cambie st. The hair looked great, nice combination of classic and modern. The photographer Kiyohiko Daniel Takeuchi was along to see the stylings go down. In the end the make-up looked amazing, nice combo with the hairstyle; and I had to fly. As much as I love to be around to see the shooting take place I was off to Whitebox Studio in Richmond. At the studio I had five models to style each to look unique. The results looked amazing right from the first shot; all thanks to photographer Albert King and the once again wonderful team. Will be adding to my portfolio from both shoots soon.
