Baby Pink Hair

One of my favorite recent color transformations! Results like this take a lot of patience, time, dedication… and a very gentle hand. Her last bleach & tone (not done by me!!) resulted in significant breakage, so I had to be extra gentle and careful not to add more, and to begin to repair the hair with the right products. The entire process took over six hours! If you’re looking to have hair like this, be sure you understand what it takes to get there. I was thrilled with the blonde at the midway point, but even happier about the final baby pink, and so was she!

Apricot-Colored Hair

This client came in with a faded tangerine haircolor and grown-out roots. I did a bleach & tone to lift the artificial color and bring up her natural color, then toned it to an apricot color with a hint of peachy-pink, perfect for spring!

He’s clean as a whistle now! ⚓️ I did this men’s disconnected cut today by starting with a technical haircut and then getting creative. ALL scissor over comb, no clippers! 😊
