HALLUCINATING MAUVE

With the right lighting and/or the right toner, dark blondes/light brunettes can take on a metallic mauve hue and I like it.  Do you see it above?  

JESSIE C.-PEACHES AND PINK

HAIR COLOR by SARAH CONNER

HAIRCUT by ALESSANDRA SAMAN

Jessie, who I’ve been blonding for quite some time now, came in wanting something fun and new.   Inspired by Sienna Miller’s recent hints of peachy rosegold hair color, we decided to baby step Jessie’s transformation as she wasn’t quite sure she was ready to fully go for it.  

Visit One: Subtlety was key-barely there hues of rosegold casted upon her mids and ends.

Visit Two:  Feeling braver-stronger hues of peach throughout.

Viist Three: Fully confident and ready to be bold-swirls of peaches and pink give her the look of rosegold.

TRIBECHELLA

Perhaps this year for Coachella, festival goers should go more tribal and less hippy?  Just an idea…cuz you know you already be planning your weekend’s wardrobe, hairdo’s, and parties to attend.  

SARAH B.-BRIGHTENED BY BALAYAGE

HAIR COLOR by SARAH CONNER

Sarah was looking to be a brighter version of herself, still with minimal upkeep.  To achieve her request, I balayaged (hand painted) strategically placed highlights away from her root throughout her mids and ends.  Now instead of looking two toned, her root area looks softer and more blended, connecting to her even brighter ends.  A subtle change that makes a big difference without the maintenance of monthly salon visits.  

P.S. Thank you for the referral, Arielle!

JUST FOR FUN

Totally diggin the juxtaposition of super glam hair and faux gutter punk dirty bruises.  Amazing what a lot of back coming can do.  Isn’t hair fun?

ANGELA M-BLENDED BLONDE

HAIR COLOR by SARAH CONNER

HAIR CUT/STYLE by REBECCA MARTIN

I had such a fun time meeting Angela, she’s as sweet as can be!  What I wanted do for her hair was fill in the “patch work” of her previous color for a more blended look.  Specifically placed highlights connected the dots and softened her lowlights giving her a more cohesive blonde.  Rebecca completed her do by “dusting her ends” with a baby trim and giving her a voluminous blowout.    

Thank you so much Angela for choosing me as your colorist, looking forward to your next visit!

SO WHEN CAN YOU BE SANDY?

When you’ve got light eyes and a creamy tan going on, oh and perhaps some sort of denim beachwear, then sandy blonde is definitely the way to go! 

AMANDA L.-FROM SAND TO GOLDEN GLAM

HAIR COLOR by SARAH CONNER

Amanda was referred to me by her sister-in-law, (thank you, Katherine!) for highlights.  It’d been sometime since she had last retouched her color so it gave me much to work with- always a bonus.  I noticed her color was a little on the sandy side, which while a pretty tone, can also wash out the coloring in one’s skin.  To warm her up a bit, I used a combination of 20 volume bleach highlights around her hairline and on her ends for added brightness, and the remaining highlights with a high-lift color.  The end result, more of a golden blonde that enhanced her eye color and gave her skin tone a natural glow- and what perfect skin she has might I add!

ROSY GOLD STRAWBERRY BABE

Love, love, love this hair color… and it’s also proof in the pudding that dimension doesn’t always equate to beachy looking hair color.  It’s rosy gold strawberry gorgeousness!

Q
I was wondering if you could help me figure out how to go about achieving Kelly osbornes lavender/silver/grey color on my hair. right now my hair is very yellow (dark yellow at the roots) with some washed out light pink in the back and underneath. I know I would have to get my hair almost white with a toner, but since I want to get silver tones is it necessary to get a white toner too? what I basically want to know is what products I will need for this. thanks :)

Hi! Thank you for your question. I highly suggest you seek a professional for the look you are going for! Toners cannot lift, they can only change the tone. So based on what you’re describing it sounds like you need to further bleach past the yellow state you’re in to get to a white. Then you can deposit a mixture of silver and lavender colors to achieve something similar to Kelly Osbourne’s color. I personally like to use the color line, Pravana, for these looks. This is a professional color line sold only to licensed stylists and colorists.

I hope this helps and best of luck to you on your color journey!

FELICIA C.-TOO LONG DON’T BELONG

HAIR COLOR by SARAH CONNER

HAIRCUT & STYLE by DANNY RISHOFF

The big change for Felicia’s makeover came from Danny lopping off inches upon inches of her natural locks- because sometimes, too long does nothing for ya’, but drag you down.  A collar bone length opened up Felicia’s facial features while barely there baby balayaged highlights accentuated the movement in her effortless waves.  A case where the cut is more and the color is less and it’s perfect that way.

NO HIGHLIGHTS NEEDED

When do you not need highlights?  When the haircut alone is a strong style- let the shape speak volumes and let the color be simple and solid.  

SHEELA N.- BRASSY TO CLASSY

HAIR COLOR by SARAH CONNER

A common complaint for dark haired beauties trying to be lighter is that their hair always ends up orangey, reddish, or copper toned just to name a few adjectives- all otherwise known as the dreaded word, brassy.  Never has it been a client request, nor was it Sheela’s desired look.  Thus she called for neutralization of the unwanted tones, which transforms everything, especially skin tone.  To avoid the brass, be realistic with your hair color desires.  For the most natural look try to aim within two shades lighter than your natural color when lifting with hair color and then know when to break out the bleach for further lightness.  

SCHOOL GIRL BROWN

Natural brunette, slightly accentuated with sunkissed ends, like that of your grade school age is about all the ombre that is necessary these days.  Keep it simple and embrace your childhood.
