Just in time for summer! The silver line adds pigment to the hair that neutralizes and counteracts yellow tones. The ocean silk technology in this line will also leave your hair shiny and strong and the UV protection will protect your hair from the harsh summer rays! Great for blondes or brunettes. The pigment also provides volume & healthy luster to the hair. This is the most highly pigmented shampoo and conditioner we have seen yet. It has been flying off the shelves.

Sound of My Voice
I just saw a film called, “Sound of My Voice”. If it were up to me, I would have titled it, “The Look of Her Hair”, as I could not take my eyes off of Brit Marling’s hair. She was cast as a leader of a cult, and they couldn’t of cast her hair any better for the part. It looked angelic, ethereal, and of excellent cult status. Great movie as well. You can check out the website here. Fox will let you watch the first 12 minutes. Loved it!

I used to listen to Squeeze when I was young because they represented new and exciting sounds and ideas coming out of London. Never in a million years would I have imagined being able to meet them. Fast Forward the tape….there was the co-founder sitting in my chair telling me, “I trust everything you do.” Why, you ask? Last year when I was on tour with Steve Poltz and Glenn Tillbrook (co-founder of Squeeze), I cut Glenn’s hair in an English pub built in the 1200′s. He explained during a consultation that he loved both the shape of the cut I had done as well as the grow out period, and this is why he made time during his American tour to book an appointment. I couldn’t be more honored to share my talents with someone that has had such a strong impact on the culture that I grew up in.

I spent a month in London in 1985. Within the first few days of landing, I visited a salon I heard about in a music documentary and had my roots lightened and colored bright red. I was excited to see and learn about a foreign subculture, and having the right hair was part of the experience. When Erin Anderson, co-founder of Woodley and Bunney, asked me to be part of a photo contest that involved creating a look that depicted a period and genre in London, my left eyebrow raised. I became obsessed. I pulled out all of my old photos- I googled images for hours. The intensity was furthered by the photographer: HERNY DILTZ! It has been fun reconnecting with my past. I will be spilling out more details in upcoming posts. I shot this image on my iphone.

Kelly Osborne: my new hero. This amazes me. I know hair can have an impact on your overall look, but this is such a strong example it has me grinning from ear to ear. I kept hearing about how great her hair looked from random sources and I just had to see for myself. I have to thank Tara from yoga class today for giving me the heads up about how stunning this most recent shade of lavender looks. It is not for everyone, but it sure is fun to look at!
