Here's a regular client of mine...I think we have been working together for a few years now...and we have traveled all over the color wheel from different shades of blonde, brown, and reds. Heather likes to change it up a bit...I know some of you ladies change your shade with the season (you know who you are) and, as a colorist, we welcome this opportunity but must keep hair integrity in mind while "color traveling". So, I use PM Shines (Redken Shades EQ comparable line) A LOT with this in mind and get great results while not imposing too much damage to the hair. Please see the following link for a great tutorial about this product. Ignore the annoying sales pitch stuff but, rather, focus on the good product content and application. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDZJAjnbGFI
Here's our most recent color per Heather's latest request of red violet...she wanted something with a punch. She came in with our previous color which was a light brown base with honey hilights...so I simply added 5 RV PM Shines on top of all the hair (process with dryer at least 25 + minutes) allowing us to preserve some dimension with the previous hilight work. She's happy with her new shade and I anticipate her requesting something entirely different in approximately 3 months :) ~Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay

1) The Natural Look ~ A fun trick to thicken the lashes without mascara is to use clear chapstick. When you have your lashes permed and tinted it takes so little for an enhanced effect and a little chapstick kind of plumps them up and conditions them...this is a "no fuss, no makeup on my eyes but they look incredible" look. Be careful to apply the chapstick from mid-shaft to ends only. I know this sounds a bit unconventional but it works and who doesn't have chapstick in their purse?
2) The Glamorous Look ~ If you want a more glamorous look, you can simply put a little mascara on and really emphasize the corners with a bit extra mascara...very attractive.
3) Conditioning ~ At night when you take your makeup off, apply just a little bit of vaseline mid-shaft to ends to condition them while you sleep...they look gorgeous in the morning. Don't go overboard with application...just a little bit goes a long way and this really keeps your lashes shiny and moisturized and won't break the wallet.

Hair stylist Vidal Sassoon became renowned in 1963 for his arresting asymmetrical modernistic version on the traditional bob haircut. Fast forward to present and Jenna Herrington is producing her own version inspired by Vidal Sassoon at Salon Sovay. Here are some shots of the back and side profile and one shot of her mentor with his versions back in the day :) ~ Jenna Herrington @ Salon Sovay
I have one client who loves ash blonde. She refers to this tonality as "mushroom" and "wheat". I have a lot of clients who prefer ash blonde to warm blonde colors but this client, in particular, would probably never come to me again if I got any neutral and/or warm colors in her blend. She actually likes it borderline grey...that's how "ash" we push it. She's a fun color challenge. So these pictures demonstrate how to take a neutral,warm, butter blonde to ash blonde. We did a fun pixie bob cut that she found on the internet and wanted me to recreate it. ~ Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay
