New L’Oreal Professionnel Somptueux Collection Introduction

After recently attending the L’Oreal Artist Foundation in Las Vegas, I have so much to share. From styling to coloring, it was all very inspiring.

L’Oreal Professional introduced their Somptueux Collection: “Ombre Couture”, “Woven Threads”, and “Asymmetric Bias”.

“Ombre Couture” is all about the light base losing its technique in order to give the hair a soft and light influence. This blonde in “Ombre Couture” emphasizes on the blonde to be very rich in texture and color.

Summer Color Highlighted Looks

Highlighting today is not always about going a lighter shade of blonde. When considering highlights you must consider your skin tone as well as the haircut you currently have and what you want to accentuate.

Placement of color in certain areas can accentuate your eyes as well as the tone of highlights can brighten up your skin tone as well.

Hair today, Gone tomorrow

Gone are the days of waiting for your hair to grow to achieve long luscious locks, or succumbing to the reality of fine, thinning hair.

I remember a time, before I decided to become a hairdresser; I thought that celebrities were born with naturally amazing hair.  Now I know when I see Jennifer Lopez go from a normal medium-length to an extremely long [...]
