Salon Sovay stylist, Sovay Reeder, creates a fun new look for her client this weekend...just in time for summer and her new job!



We had a fun time transforming my client's look which began with color.  This was the first time I met her (and her hair).  She had about 1 1/2 inches of new growth we had to address first.

Step 1 - color:
I lifted her base with 10 Volume developer and 8.1 Pravana color and then applied 9BV/8N PM Shine to her entire base to get more overall depth to her existing blonde...her baseline color was simply too yellow and brassy.

Step 2 - color:
I applied highlights with 5 Volume Developer/Lightener and lowlights with 7N PM Shine throughout top and sides of head (commonly referred to as a "partial")

Step 3 - Hot Heads Extensions
We used Hot Heads Extensions length 18-20 inch number 27 and number  8, 1:1 ratio for highlight, lowlight effect

Step 4 - Styling
We cut the extensions to create a face frame effect and cut her bangs to frame her face optimally.  We also created light layering and texturizing to the extensions for blending purposes.  A curling iron ( 1 1/2 inch) was used to add bounce and light curl to her extensions.  Voila...done :)

Salon Sovay stylist, Kate Spoleti, creates soft highlights using balayage applcation.

Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the color is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques.

Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders.

The fact it’s so low maintenance is a bonus! People want to look fashionable and feel good about their appearance but in this day and age we don't all have the time to be in the salon every few weeks for a touch up.

Hot Heads Extensions with stylist, Sovay Reeder, at Salon Sovay

In honor of upcoming Valentine's Day, I have carefully placed a nice heart on my client's face to keep her anonymous so we can focus on the hair extensions.  My client previously came in with Great Lengths extensions and left my salon with Hot Heads extensions! 

Color ~ put 40Volume on her new growth...put hl packets in around her face and mohawk section...put lowlights with 7N PM Shine...followed with 9NB PM Shine all over her hair and in between foils.

Extensions ~ 18 - 20 inch 40 piece pack AND  Mini Pack Ultimate 14 - 16 inch


Eyelash Perm and Eyelash Tint with Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay

Oftentimes I'm asked if you can perm or tint shorter eyelashes and will it really make a difference. I think so. This client has very fine, modest lashes and they're really optimally enhanced with an eyelash tint and eyelash perm.  Just because your lashes may not be the strongest facial feature you have does NOT mean it should be ignored.  All lashes are equal here...I treat them all the same...and strive to get them to their personal "10".

Eyelash perm service with Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay


Here's a before and after look of an eyelash perm service from Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay.  This is simply an example of a lash perm and not an eyelash tint.  Oftentimes, if the client has fine, fair, or light colored lashes it may be optimal to add a tint for deeper color and thicker texture.  The above client had a coarse lash already but they were board straight and not receptive to an eyelash curler.

About my client:
This hair transformation took 2 hours from start to finish.  My client is transitioning her delicate hair from overly processed light blonde hair (not my doing) to medium blonde to prevent further breakage.  In addition, this color transformation allows a softer,, warmer more complimentary color to her face and a less severe line of demarcation between her natural hair color and her lightened color...in other words, fewer visits to her colorist (me).  My client also has baby fine and thin hair that breaks off past the collar bone.  Hot Heads hair extensions allows her to have thicker, longer, beautiful hair while protecting and encouraging her natural hair to continue it's growth.

Looking for a possible solution to hair thinning? This may be of interest to you!

Viviscal Professional ~ helps to grow hair thicker and healthier

I am constantly asked about a product that can assist and encourage more hair growth where hair is beginning to receed and/or thinning aggressively.  To date, I have never had any solutions or products to suggest and came across this newer product that addresses this issue.  It is worth investigating and may work for you.  I, personally, do not sell this product but wanted to expose this information to anyone looking for some possible answers to the issue of hair thinning.  

Sovay @ Salon Sovay

Studies show that more than half of us (60% of American adults) experience hair thinning as we age. For many, hair loss takes an emotional toll. This is why we are so excited to offer this latest hair loss supplement: Viviscal Professional. Featured in leading beauty magazines like In Style, Elle, and Vogue, Viviscal Professional adds heath and thickness to your hair. And the product is 100% drug free, and can be taken in addition to other hair loss supplements like Propecia.
Working from the inside out, Viviscal Professional provides your body with the nutrients it needs to grow thicker, healthier hair. One of these nutrients, AminoMar, is a proprietary protein complex that was developed after research linked the healthy skin and hair of the Inuit to their diet — rich in protein and fish. Viviscal Professional also provides Biotin (Vitamin B7), which helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats and amino acids to create the building blocks for healthy, thick hair.
In a recent study, patients showed significant results after taking 2 tablets of Viviscal Professional for 6 months. 46% of the study participants saw a reduction in thinning and increased growth. 75% of participants reported increased thickness, and an increase in hair volume. None of the participants reported any adverse effects.
To ensure that you get the complete result, we sell Viviscal Professional in a 180 day supply . After 6 months, only one tablet of Viviscal Professional is needed to maintain the results.
Visviscal-user hair at 0 days, 90 days, and 180 days.
