I’m excited about a hair collection I’m able to bring to all my clients and readers! Many of you know the line that I educate for is Davines, from Parma, Italy.  Our artistic director Angelo Seminara, the triple British Hairdresser’s Award winner, has created the collection called Powder.  I think that it’s great for spring!

This collection of colors utilizes superimposed pastel colors accentuated by rosy cool tones and other unexpected glints sprinkled throughout these classic shapes.  Such beautiful and saturated shades are softened by what seems like a veil of powder, exuding femininity and exposing vulnerability while staying confident and graceful.

We have everything we need at my shop to achieve these gorgeous looks!  Now if I can only find a volunteer to let me shave and dye her hair… Know someone?

Beards and brows: Lavender, Mustard, or Teal?
I recently found an article where Tush, a German magazine, dyed male models’ hair bright saturated colors. While not perfectly suited for 99% of my male clientele, it would be fun and is at the very least incredibly inspirational!
I’ve laid a couple of images and a video shoot of all three models. Enjoy!





A Time for Everything…

So here it is…  It is my hope that this style blog will become one you can rely on for advice about both hair and fashion.  I’ll start with at least two or three a month and look to post weekly about images, trends, new hair color schemes, etc.

We are all fortunate for the many ways we can access inspiration now!  Whether I’m tearing pages from the latest Vogue and GQ or Googling till my fingers are sore and my eyes are crossed, I love seeing the latest runways for hair and fashion!  I use this info to recognize patterns and common styles; even develop my own trends here in Nashvegas!  I have been collecting them all for my own hairspiration but am now eager to start sharing!  That means there will be helpful tips here to style both the latest and upcoming trends for the ladies and the gentlemen!

To get started   Let me tell you a little about myself.

I came to Nashvegas in 2003 to make myself a busy life full of happy.  After some continued career exploring from bars to banks I turned to the world of hair fashion in 2004 and haven’t looked back! Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to tease (and spray) some stars of Music City and paint some of the local beauty that Nashville has to offer.  When I did videos, commercials and shorts with CMT I styled Taylor Swift, Stephen Baldwin, Maureen McCormick and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders to name a few.

Four years into this new artistic journey, I tightened my bootstraps (by which I mean my Chucks) and successfully spearheaded the rebranding of our salon. A year later, I squared up my bowtie and became an educator, teaching my style of “hairapy” to salons from Kansas City and Dallas to New Orleans and back.  Having now trained for years with companies like Davines and Vidal Sassoon, I’m fired up and ready to change Nashville one head at a time!

Now you know me.  Follow along as I present tips for your own arsenal against bad hair days and warped wardrobe ways. And may the hair be ever in your favor!
