Highlight. Shadow root & Pixie undercut on my girl & fellow stylist @colourist_paige
I've been real shitty on posting past couple months (except stories) Life decided to move into hyperspeed & 2018 is becoming a blur. I'm thankful for all of you- clients, friends & family! I love IG but I'm really not feeling like making it my whole life that my work relies on. To be honest majority of my clientel is from referral. Ya'll dont care to see color touch ups or a long layer cut day after day. In reality though, that's 90% of my work. The bread & butter. So, I'm gonna focus more on making the clients in my chair happy. The folks in my life happy. ME happy & I hope to see new & old faces in my chair soon!! 😘😘😘
Warm that heart of yours while warming others!! It gets cold at night & there are some children without coats at all!
You can do this!! ❤
Did some ribbony Balayage highlight & lowlight to add dimension. It's been a long & slow process trying to transition her out of red! (Fyi: Red is the HARDEST to keep in & one of the HARDEST to get out, safely!) Loving the warm tones her hair is transitioning to now 🍂🍁 FALL IS HERE!!!! Thanks for all your patience & sweetness @lovecharla

had grown out foil highlights prior. We decided to take her more natural with less maintenance needed. #momlife
BALAYAGE to the rescue!!! We painted in the blonde as well a lowlight to add some dimension. 🤗

Can you tell what my favorite thing to do is yet?? (besides eating...😋)
Yup. This was a mix of Foilayage & open air painting. With cut = 3ish hrs.
Last week I got the chance to Balayage Extensions!! Was so fun (a LOT more work than I expected!) But DEF something I'd LOVE to do more of!!!! Ps. I do not install extension, at this time. 😏
My homegirl @darlinggniki
came in for another chop! 💇♀️ This is her old balayage that still looks good after 3 months & 5 inches off!! Such a babe 😍
from a traditional highlight to a bright rooted blonde!! It gave her a more natural look & really made that blonde pop! 🤗
Root touch up. Gloss blend(reverse Balayage) Balayage. Tone & Cut. Blow out.

My Hubs @greg_victory

Our son Mateo is now 5!!
I'm about to be Mama to a Kindergartener?!! 😱 (that's his baby pic behind me👆)
We travel all over the 🌎 for fun & Tattoo Conventions. Neither 1 of us had ever been on a plane till we were adults!?
Sometimes I feel I'm in 3 different Worlds: Hair, Tattoo & Mama. It can be overwhelming sometimes (ok, a lot!) My anxiety tries to creep in but working out regularly helps me deal with that xtra energy & get out of my own head! The battles of being a free spirited Artist & a control freak 🤷♀️ Seriously tho, you gotta work that shit out!! 💪
I love to paint w/watercolor & ink when I can. I love the 90s. Rocking out. DANCING! & Fall. I can talk endlessly about True Crime (👈 murderino), Game of Thrones, my kid & FOOD 🌮🍩 ...ALL the food...
So proud of the life we are building together! This whirlwind ain't easy but it is fun! Incredibly thankful to our Clients, Friends & of course, Family. It takes a village to raise a kid & build businesses! Ya'll are the coolest!
Back of the head action on my most recent hair painting!🧡
Soft, natural sunkissed highlights. Balayage this Mama @rachellibbygensler
can rock for months if she wanted to!
Balayage may be a higher ticket initially but you get soooo much more longevity out of it than standard foil highlights.
It's my fav. 😎
Toned with @schwarzkopfusa
Roots- 7-1 & 9-0 (equal) w/ 6vol
Mid- 9-0 & 9-1 (equal) w/ 13vol
Combed thru ends
This is 2 month old Balayage!! She just came in for a new Cut & Roots! 😍😍😍
I also got to teach her how to style her NATURAL Wave!! Who wants to flat iron in this heat?! 🔥
All Color: @schwarzkopfusa
Love Curl Primer & Cream & Oi serum
Twisted her hair into random dreads while wet. (twist away from face)
Then blow dried with a diffuser (ideally you would skip the blow dryer & let air dry for BEST results!)
When all dry- tip your head over and fluff out with fingers.
Apply any additional oils if needed... DONE!! ✔
