The Holidays are HAIR

The holidays can take a lot of time from all of us , as a hair colorist working in the salon from early mornings at 7 am to late nights till 8 pm can be hard during these times, taking care of clients hair during the holiday season is hard and time consuming. During these times most hair dresser don’t get to spend to much time with their family’s it’s the time that we give our heart and souls out to the public.

Preparation is the key to not get overwhelm during the holidays I have always recommended to my clients to try and schedule all appointments during these hard times, To keep notes on what they have to do this what they don’t feel to much pressure Moms have it hard they have to please their family’s and friends, shop for all meals buy gift and wrap them not only that but the preparation of the home .

Women’s contouring Short Sassy hair 2017

The way I feel about hair is that very Hair cut has to speak for itself, By adding the right amount of texture it will have more movement and be more playful, the contouring should be done with color tones to enhance the cut specially if it’s framing the face .

The head structure has a combination of rounds and flats on the head, 8 rounds know as high points  and 12 flat areas, Hair colorist Martin rodriguez uses the very important key point to give your facial structure the best look for you.

Strobing contouring hair Painting

Hair color has been around since the egyptian days at the begging of time the egyptian people would gather plants and flowers brake them down to enhance their hair color tones.

Balayage was first brought from France early 1970  it came to some salons in America early 1980’s by this time we were using caps and foil to highlight hair , Using a plastic cap with a kroshe needle to pull the hair out and make it lighter, this application at times would be a little painful for clients specially with long hair. Foil was the future in hair coloring it was so much easier using foil not painful and the options were so much better the only thing with foils is that the hair still looked a little  streaky . With Strobe balayage hair painting this technique really gave us the hair colorist the freedom to create masterful artwork in hair coloring on any type of hair . Hair colorist Martin Rodriguez and founder of colourwand balayage tools and education has taking it to the next level of coloring hair, Its not just the application one must have the understanding of color placement Martin uses the high points of the head to place color so it stands out and the flat areas to enhance the brighter tones. Hair coloring is for everyone including gray hair the whole idea with strobe balayage hair painting is to vive you hair that speaks for its self and make it look as if you were born with it.
