Make up lessons

I know my blog is about all things hair, but I'm a make up artist too. I wanted to let my readers know that I do make up lessons at the salon for $35 which you can redeem in products. I think it's an amazing deal since most salons offer lessons at about $60 and you don't get to take anything home. Come see me and we can play with make up!

Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair

I've been trying out this new leave in conditioner and to say I'm in love is a bit of and under statement.

Back in 2007 Aveda discontinued their Elixir leave in conditioner and I've been hoarding some since then because it was my favorite. 3 years later they have finally made a worthy replacement or I should say superior replacement. The daily hair repair is the best detangler I've used-ever. Put it on and the comb glides through the hair like a hot knife through butter! Amazing! And it repairs the hair to boot! It's not on shelves quite yet, you'll have to wait until next month to pick some up. In the meantime you can get on the waiting list. Try it and let me know what you think.

Shear Genius 3

Things are heating up between Brig and Matthew and I love it!

This week the contestants had to do a precision cutting challenge-most failed. I find it sad that when faced with a challenge that happens every day in the salon so many couldn't step up. I teach all my new stylists that you have to master the basics before you break out of the box. I think several of these hairdressers went for out of the box and they are lackin some basic skills. And while I detest Brig I agree with her that Matthew is nearing the end of his tricks. I was very happy Janine won the short cut challenge. I picked her as my season 3 winner from the start. Brian-the dumb blonde routine is getting old! It's so time for you to leave-please! So I have to ask WTF is with Jon and his back pack? Is he Dora the Explorer?

I'm getting very disappointed in the elimination challenges not being more salon focused. Photoshoots are so NOT what most of us do everyday. And while it's great that Matthew wins the photoshoot and runway challenges it doesn't show that he can cut and color hair-You know what most of us do to pay the bills! Unless you are Orlando Pita you don't get paid or get paid very little to do photoshoots and fashion shows.

Looks like we'll be seeing Matthew for at least 2 more shows. I will laugh my butt off if he makes it to the final because that will mean the 2 hairdressers I assisted will have been Shear Genius finalist! Guess who needs to be on season 4 ;)

Shear Genius Season 3 epi 4

I'm back. The last 2 shows were so boring I couldn't bring myself to blog about them. This week was good.

First-when will the SG contestants learn that a wet set takes forever to dry. Really Janine you thought 35 min would be enough? We see it every season and every season someone has wet hair tryin to throw it up into a style.

April's little melt down was f'ing lame! If you get graduated bob as a challenge then do a graduated bob. I think she was scared to do it.

Brian is a little too hippy dippy for me. Looking in his eyes is like looking through a window. Leave already.

Not a bit sad to see Amy go. She was a wet blanket anyway.

Last-Really Bravo? Really? Brig won over Matthew with that craptastic up 3 hair do look! Oy vey! She is sticking around for 2 more weeks.

Remember friends hair is important *vomits*
