This has been a truly wonderful time of year for Sarah to join me in the salon.  So many clients are arriving with plans for the Holidays ... and there is excitement all around.   It is definitely my favorite season.

Our salon Christmas party was last weekend and Sarah received the "Wild Child Award" from Alec (salon owner) who can't get enough delight out of teasing Sarah and our unique grand-daughter/grand-father working relationship.  BTW ... I received his "Lifetime Achievement Award" for the third year in a row!

May peace and love surround you at Christmas time and all the whole year through. Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Best wishes for a prosperous New Year!

Salon Happenings . . .
Nadia & Susan ... It is always wonderful when mom & daughter ... or grand-daughter (or occasionally all three) ... come together to the salon.  In order to make this happen, Nadia has to drive to the Mission Hills to pick-up her mom, Susan.  Almost 96yrs old, Susan does not drive any more. ... and Nadia wants her to have a special experience.

It was marvelous to be able to capture them together at this time of year in this great image. Thanks, Nadia for making this possible!
Icy ... a special client with an unusual name.  She likes styles which are as unique as her ... natural and free style.  Here she is with the latest ... a choppy bob with peek-a-boo blonde chunks.

Icy, who is a visiting home nurse has definite style! 

I love the glasses!
Hilary ... is the eldest daughter of my long-time client Elizabeth, who modeled for me WAY back in 1985?  Perhaps some of you will remember her images on the walls of our salon in Mission Viejo ... she is the striking red-head.  When we look back at those images now, she says "I can't believe I ever wore my hair that BIG!"  Well, it was the 80s! 

Hilary was ready for a bit of an adventure.  I created a slightly a-line bob, with blonde peek-a-boo chunks placed dramatically around her face.  The contrast against such pretty skin is wonderful, and she looks amazing.
Sarah ... another lovely young client whose mom has been seeing me for many years.  In fact, Sarah, who is terrific to photograph, has appeared on my website cover more than once.

In this latest look, I placed chunky "under-lights"
in her a-line bob with strong side swept bangs.  This theme of color peeking out from underneath has become the look of today ... in contrast to the sun created highlights to which so man are familiar.
Reef ... is the very precocious grand-daughter of long-time client Christina. It is hard to tell that Reef is only 10 years old!  And her taste in hairstyles is definitely not typical.  The bolder the better for sure.  Here she is showing an under-cut and asymmetrical short bob.

She's hoping for bold highlights in the New Year.  We wonder if the world is really ready for Reef ... LOL

I have had the most wonderful time these past few months getting to know everyone!  I am
learning so much from watching my grandfather work his "magic" and from the hands-on practice with my lovely models.  It makes me so excited for all that is to come this next year and those to come.

Here are just a few of the models I have done recently:

Tracey ... I practiced a short a-line bob with some blunt bangs.  Also could be my best blow dry yet on her naturally curly hair.

Stephanie ... I learned so much with this haircut! An a-line bob with dropout pieces, layers, and some bangs!  Defiantly a signature haircut!   

Joan ... My first "short" haircut.  No one has a bigger personality than Joan, and I am so pleased that she is enthusiastic about working with me.  She is so open to trying new ideas ... we'll have fun.  And I'll learn a lot!

Anne ... Trusted me with her hair right before family photos... honored!  A nice bob and my first time learning "slide-cutting".  I love the way this cut made her curls look.
Dylan ... My handsome brother.  He drove up from San Diego just so I could learn the scissor over comb technique with his haircut.  Loved getting to spend some time with him and show him around the salon.  This session was definitely a treat for me.   
This holiday season has been so much fun with everyone in the salon.  I love the extra bit of joy
that everyone has.

Hope you all have a blessed Christmas and joyous New Year!
