5 Things You Need to Know About the “Babylights” Hair Color Trend

Get ready—there’s a new hair color technique that’s taking the beauty industry by storm and it’s called “babylights.” The term can be added to the ongoing list of highlighting techniques like splashlights, balayage, ombre and sombre, but this one differs dramatically from the rest. Babylights are delicate highlights created using a very fine hair color technique to mimic the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. “My clients often bring in photos of their children for inspiration, asking me to make their color look that...

Drugstore vs Salon Products

Drugstore vs Salon Products A typical interaction between me and a client goes like this: “So before I blow dry your hair, I’m going to put in (product xyz) to (smooth it/rough it up/give it more volume.) What you do is use this much, put it (from mid shaft to ends/just at roots/whatever) and blow dry with a (round brush/flat brush/fingers.)” I blow it out and not to toot my own horn but root-a-toot-toot, they’re happy. So they might ask “What was that product again?” and I’ll tell them. “Can I...

Why Haircuts Cost So Much

One of the most frustrating comments I hear about the hair industry is how expensive hair services are. Why are haircuts so expensive?I decided to break it down, and explain the costs involved in a haircut and also explain why the average stylist isn’t ripping you off by charging $40 – $60 for a haircut and up in the $100 and above range for color.  I’d be willing to bet that some of the expenses in a hair salon just might surprise you.
