What a great way to end a day

Krimson and I take trapeze classes together at Canopy studios. Every week for the last who knows how long she has been telling me that she was going to let me cut it off, and today was the day! After going over the few ideas that she had, and me throwing in my two cents, we arrived at a rough plan. Krimson has beautiful baby fine hair that she sweeps into a ponytail

a no nonsense dream... full of nonsense!

most of the time because of her work at her restaurant, the Krimson Kafe, and tons of time on her mountain bike. Losing this ponytail was certainly worth it. I kept her hairline soft and natural, and the rest of the edges are full of separation so that her waves will come rolling out. I love love love it. 

 

To amp up her hair we started with Tea Tree’s Lemon Sage Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, and before her blowout I used a small amount (knowing even a small amount was more than what she would use!) of Thicken Up. She walked out with loads of texture, a little oomph, and tons of flavor!

Athens Farmer’s Market

DSC_2264We’re now two weeks into year two of the Athens Farmer’s Market. There were some new farmers this year and tons of crafters. Last weekend Lori and I went to go scope things out, grab some breakfast before work, and check out our tent! This is year two of Honey’s Salon sponsorship of a tent at the market. The tents are set up by volunteers each week and provide coverage for the farmers, crafter, and their edibles and wares! I love the juice, coffee, and fresh baked goods, and I always look forward to stocking up on things my yard doesn’t produce. 

Hooray for the Farmer’s Market!

Head for cover! This one’s a blonde bombshell!

My friend Missy came in last Saturday after a week of feeling less than impressed with her hair. She had a couple of ideas, but wasn’t sold on any of them. We did a ton of brainstorming before finally coming up with the ultimate! With summer on the way it seemed best to push her natural blonde to a whole new level.

For the hairdresser’s out there, I’ll just preach to what you Paul Mitchell lovers already know, Dual Purpose Lightener is the best ever! 15 vol. in the platinum card technique and Missy was blonde. I massaged in just a tad of the new Flash Finish to make her bling… And Bling she did!

I love it! And it looks like everyone she runs into is nuts about it too!

My hair is GORJUS! Help! I’m hot! And it’s all your fault!

This was the text I received from a friend after her recent visit. You think she liked her hair?

Sara Jean was a skeptic at first. The child of two hairdresser’s has been the Queenbee of her own looks for quite a few years, and was a bit unsure about putting her tresses in the hands of someone else. But by the end, I had made her mine! I had so much fun with her crazy hair, and even if it takes months for her to come back, I will love to do it again. Thanks Sara-J!

I love my job…
