 Well, maybe not quite the kind of strip you might think I have in mind but-

I have had several new guests in the salon lately.

Lovely people whom I have been pleased to serve.

And I'm noticing something that I have not previously seen a lot in this area.

About half of my...

Do you get your hair toned after a bleach highlight?

Given that it is more time and more money, there is a definite temptation to skip it-

But toning is a critical step in any bleaching service. 

Not for nothing, we call it a double process color.

You see, toning hair afte...

I've been thinking a lot lately about why my work feels so important to me.

It can't just be about catering to people's vanity.

That would never really appeal to me.

Especially noticeable with men.

Especially when I start asking questions.

I don't know, they say (and you know people don't like to...

The ads make it look soooo easy!

Mix these two bottles together and plop it on your head and

Boom!

You'll have gorgeous, glossy, glamorous hair!

In the privacy and convenience of your own bath room.

Or kitchen.

And it's a lot less expensive too!

Sounds great! Sign me up!

A little while ago, while conversing with a client, I was asked what might prompt me to decline a customer's request for service.

 You see, we were talking about marketing and how I've come to realize that I don't really want absolutely everyone in my chair. Rather, my...
