Hi Everyone! I am so excited to share the amazing things that I have learned this year by traveling and taking multiple classes on the latest trends and advanced techniques. I have spent over a dozen days so far this year learning so that you are getting the most up to date hair color, cuts, and styles! I have taken multiple classes on balayage, became an educator with Davines color, and have advanced certifications from The Business of Balayage.
I have needed to adjust a few things on my service menu because I have learned that I always need to do a gloss after a highlight foil or balayage. It should be looked at as a “top coat” of a manicure and seals the hair with tone, shine, and moisture. It is no longer an “add-on” option. Now, every foil or balayage will have some sort of gloss used after the service. Because of this change, I have actually dropped the gloss add-on price from 35 and incorporated the old foil or balayage price to be an additional 25 instead of the 35.
This is not a price increase, just an adjustment to the option as an “add-on”. The gloss will now be included in the hair color price. No other pricing has been changed. Olaplex, blowdry and haircuts are still the same charge.
The advanced techniques I use for hair color, foiling, and balayage help to make your visits low maintenance. Your average foil touch up should be 8-10 weeks, the average balayage touch up should be 4-6 months. Grey coverage is based on the amount of grey around 4-6 weeks. I suggest booking a touch up for grey’s 2-3 times before needing to add foils or highlights back to the hair.
Because I have a lot of new questions on what to do for a maintenance schedule, I have put together a few options. The new techniques have significantly lessened the maintenance for most of my clients the last few years. Here are a few rebooking examples for color and cut:
1: Full and style
2: (4-6 weeks from option 1) Gloss and haircut
3: (4-6 weeks from option 2 or 8-12 weeks from option 1) Partial and style
4: (4-6 weeks from option 3) Gloss and haircut
5: (4-6 weeks from option 4 or 8-12 weeks from option 3) Partial and style
6: (4-6 weeks from option 5) Gloss and Haircut
7: Full and style
(start the process over again)
*style and haircut can be swapped out in this example.
Low maintenance hair color and cut – 3 visits a year
1: Full balayage and haircut
2: (4 months) Partial balayage and haircut
3: (4 months) Partial balayage and haircut
Low maintenance hair color and high maintenance haircut, you can book them separate:
Color: 3 visits a year, 4 month maintenance
Cut: 6 visits a year, 2 month maintenance

If you are looking for an affordable way to incorporate depth or lightness to your hair and want to “try-on” balayage or signature pieces or only need a “few” pieces addded on to your hair color, there is an option now for “face framing” highlights as a less charge than a partial when added to a retouch.
