Sunkissed Gold Color on Relaxed Hair

2016-09-20-21-01-12Hey! How is it going?

Sista Rae has been a regular client for a long time although she only comes for a bob with layers and color. She has to be THE client with the strongest & thickest hair, rapid hair growth and zero breakage horror stories. That’s why I say YES to her for coloring and not to all.

Color and relaxed hair usually don’t mix. WHY? A lot of women can’t even have back to back relaxers without experiencing breakage so thinking about adding another chemical process is completely absurd.

I only color relaxed hair if you are a regular client and I know your hair. I won’t color a first visit client. That would be irresponsible of me.

Here’s a few tips for clients who consider color:

  • Tip 1: Timing is everything.

    The general guideline is to wait two weeks AND a shampoo between any chemical processing and coloring.

  • Tip 2: Shorten processing time

    Because relaxed hair is more reactive to color, know that the processing time can be easily cut in half. A quick and strategic application is required!!

  • Tip 3: Condition, condition, condition!

    I can’t say it enough. Relaxing treatments leave hair vulnerable. If you are not committed to care for your hair, this might not be the best option for you.

    You can always had color using extensions. That’s what I suggest and do for 95% of my clients!

Have a great week & be blessed!

Faux Locs Different HairStyles (Week 2)

2016-09-09-01-09-40Hey!

Quick POST!

As promised, I took more pictures on week 2. My hair got a little bit looser so I could have fun and play around with it more.

2016-09-09-00-49-08I didn’t plan none of theses styles, I just went with the flow and got inspired from my lipstick colors. Lol.

My favorite style is wearing my faux locs loose but I can’t work,sleep or exercise with my hair down so I must tie them half up, half down.

I will keep you updated week by week. Still loving this change!

I will talk to you next week!

Silk Press on Long Natural Hair featuring Clau

2016-09-13-18-50-142016-09-13-18-53-15Hey!

How is everyone doing? Most of you probably know this pretty face from blog posts on yearly length check.

If not, well Clau has been a client for a long time, she has a beautiful natural mane of 18 inches. Getting longer from year to year.

Her hair was already detangled when she arrived so we started with a wash, a deep treatment, blowdry and then the silk press.

Although she cut her ends 2 months ago, I made sure to revisit each area and cut what needed to be cut.

2016-09-13-18-47-14I did the whole process with Thermafuse line of products. She wanted loose curls so she could maintain her style using flexirods at night.

We were both really satisfied with the results. She said she would keep it for a week or so and come back for her favorite protective style which is a weave.

To book me or to get more information on my services, feel free to call me!

Cheers to an healthy & growing hair!

Have a blessed and productive week!

New HAIR ALERT: Faux Locs

2016-09-04-21-04-53Hey!

So I have been rocking my long curly bob for the past 4 months!

2016-09-07-09-16-48I don’t remember wearing the same style for so long. I really enjoyed my lob. Easy to maintain and always classy looking.

Nevertheless, it was time! I wanted to protect my hair for a few months while still looking fierce!

As a hairstylist, I’m always looking for new trends, styles & hair. I have always like the faux locs look but a lot of them took forever to do (approximately 7 hours) or were too shiny.

2016-09-03-17-53-21I came across Faux Locs that looked very natural with the right amount of sheen and the right size for me. Furthermore, the fact that the loc has random curves to it adds to the ‘realness’ of the style. Crochet is the technique I used. There is a ‘professional’ way to crochet this hair so it looks like the real thing!

I have gotten a ton of compliments about my new style. I like it as well. It’s different and it just what I needed: CHANGE is good! Quick , effective and not heavy at all.

If you want to do the same style, give me a call. I provide the hair. Serious Inquiries Only.

I will talk to you soon and provide more pictures.

Be blessed!

Jessica Alba Inspired Wedding Updo + Makeup

2016-08-31 19.29.40Hey!

Quick post!

My dear friend and client Kathy is a regular whenever she has a special event.

She wanted something elegant, flowy that looks effortless.

jessica-alba-braided-updo-backI was able to achieve her Jessica Alba inspired vision.

We started with a good old tight roller set with smaller rollers to create flowy curls and volume.

Then I combed her hair using my fingers (no combs) and added pins to secure the bun. I also added a piece for extra volume. Voilà!

I also did her makeup. She was wearing a beautiful A-line shaped peach dress with embellishment on the high waist.

Therefore, we went with soft neutral eyes with eyelashes and bolder lips.

She really loved it. I wished I had a picture of the entire look with the outfit!

Wedding Hair & Makeup: Big sister of the broom!

image2 (2)Hey!

Lina, superwoman and mother of 3 boys, is a regular. Her brother was getting married so she wanted to look very elegant without being over the top.

image3 (1)Therefore we went with her usual length of 12′ and roller setted her extensions to create natural volume and lightness.

As for as her makeup, she wanted to accentuate her eyes and keep the lips neutral. We added lashes to complete the look and give it more glam. She was very pleased with the results.

image1 (5)The 2016 wedding season,which starting end of april for me, is slowy coming to an end.

I still have pictures to upload so look forward to more inspiration coming!

Nevertheless, I want to thank all my clients for their trust and for being on time most of the time! Lol.

It was a great summer. I will see you soon, it’s almost protective styling season!

Grandmother of the bride: Hair & Makeup

2016-07-30 13.10.49
2016-08-10 19.32.34Hey!

In our community, we
already know that when it comes to wedding, we do not play! We bring out the best attires, jewelry, hairstyles & more. We love to dress to impress!

This beautiful and kind grandmother wanted to look her best for her grand daughter special day. She has an idea of the hairstyle she wanted but she let me chose her makeup look!
Although her hair is 14′ long and pretty thick (yes 14′) I added some hair to achieve the volume that I wanted for this side updo. She brought her hairpiece to add some sparks to the look.

She was a joy to work with. She loved the final result!

Short Cut Weave Rihanna Inspired

2016-07-20 19.26.51Hey!short-straight-hairstyle

I know I know, it’s been a while but I’m here!!

Christelle is a long time client who has a favorite short cut she likes to do as a weave because she doesn’t necessarily want to commit to a short cut on a full time basis.

Her hair is fully natural and growing nicely.

2016-07-20 19.28.06The inspiration was Rihanna. She wanted to add color so I mixed a beautiful soft brown with natural black in the back to give it a natural feel. Et voilà!

I have some great news coming up. I am available all summer to care for your hair or for any special occasions you have. Give me a call!

Summer 2016: Add some color!

2016-06-17 18.07.04Hey!

Pretty woman Jailai, who’s a client of 10 years plus, sent me this cute selfie of her new hair! Love it!

She wanted to try a color for the summer with her usual length so we went for a deep ombre purple & burgundy color on DJC virgin hair length 14′ & 12′.

We did a full install meaning a full weave. Her hair is completely covered and protected.

I finished the look with some soft curls using a flat iron. She’s ready for summer!

Are YOU? I hope so!

Have a wonderful week-end celebrating the fathers around you!

Wedding HairStyles 2016: Part 1

2016-06-08 18.29.38Hey!

As usual, every summer I do a series on wedding hairstyles to provide you inspiration and possibly a little fierceness along the way.

2016-06-08 18.21.23Mara is a fairly new client as she was referred by a friend who is a regular.

She wanted to reproduce the style that you see on the picture and that’s exactly what we did.

We reused extensions she wore in the past to create volume for the bun and added length in the front.

The appointment was short and sweet, she was out the door under 45 minutes and off to her makeup appointment.

Quick Post!

Cynthia is a strong beautiful woman and mother. We always have great enlightening conversations when she comes for her hair. Divinely arranged appointments as I call them. She has been a loyal client for a long time.

The inspiration color was the image at your top right which we achieved beautifully: layer of strawberry, violet and fushia (but it doesn’t show that well in the pictures).

13397092_10156921358160184_727279515_oShe wanted to be bold and add some vibrant color in her bob. She wanted to give her hair total rest so she opted for the invisible part which is a good protective style option. As usual, I don’t use glue at all to do the invisible.

We both loved the result as well as her new boss! Lol. Too bad, the pictures don’t do the color justice.

To all my clients, thank you for your business through all those years!

Feel free to CALL me for your summer events!

Crochet braids in Twists featuring Kerma

2016-04-05 19.44.51Hey!IMG_8110

A lot of clients have been asking me if I did crochet. I finally DO!

Kerma, beautiful women, mother and health fanatic, has been a client for over 5 years. She went natural a year ago and came for a stylish yet simple tapered cut. She was now looking to give her hair a break while having versatility!

2016-04-05 19.47.13She kind of pushed me to do Crochet and I accepted humbly. It turned out great!

Thank you for trusting me with your weaves, wigs, tapered cuts and new styles like crochet. It truly means a lot to me! I also must say thank you for all those gorgeous pictures of all the different options of hairstyles!

Resurrection Sunday!

2016-03-27 16.52.35Hey!

GRATEFUL! Blessed! Highly Favored! Happy!

God has been doing so much in me! I’m forever amazed at his power and glory!

In general, resurrection Sunday to me is a celebration of Jesus unconditional love, a commemoration of all the pain and suffering he put up with at the cross for my sins and also a realization again and again that Jesus is alive, impactful and that his love endures forever.

2016-03-28 15.35.21But this year, resurrection sunday took another meaning for me: Faith that, in his Will, He is able to resurrect any sector of your life because nothing is difficult for GOD!

I’m so HYPED nowadays. This year is a pivotal year for me spiritually and far more! Declare good things over your life! Pursue the things of Christ!

I hope you all had a wonderful and meaningful long week-end!

InstaMoment 2016 Part 3: Upart Wig Edition!

2016-02-22 20.06.27Hey!

Quick Post!

Guess how long ago this Upart was made? A little over ONE YEAR AGO!

It’s been sitting there for a while so she decided to rock it again for her birthday a year later. I don’t remember the specifications exactly but this is most probably 2.5 or 3 packs of DJC virgin hair, lengths are 16 t0 20 inches.

The wave pattern is completely natural as we call it Natural Wave. I just shaped the bangs using my flat iron. Hair still has a lot of movement and bounce.

I also achieved a natural makeup look for her with light and flawless foundation application with natural lashes and eyeliner. We also added a soft and sweet pink as a blush with high cheeks highlights!

Follow me on Instagram for instant photos of my work and videos of the hairstyles @LaurieHairStylist.

Have a blessed week!

Shortcut Curls!

Quick Post!

You already know Liette. Gorgeous woman, she’s my go to shortcut model!

When her hair is shorter, we usually style it Mohawk style but now that the front is longer, we are styling it to the sides with bangs.

Love the dark chocolate color she’s currently rocking! Perfect for the cold weather we are dealing with at the moment.

Who’s ready to cut their hair? LOL. I’m still enjoying my freshly bouncy relaxed hair and my ponytails but I might get there sooner than you think!

Cheers to the curls!

A good Roller Set and Wrap!

2016-01-31 01.39.38Hey!

There is no better feeling than unwrapping bouncy hair the morning after a wash and roller set! WINNING!!

I wore this exact style for a long time so it feels great to wear it again!

One of the healthiest ways to style your hair is through roller setting. There is a roller size for every length of hair and every style.

A lot of people use heat on their hair daily by using curling or flat irons. Heat everyday equals hair breakage, hair breakage equals no growth retention.

2016-01-27 23.56.28You should be able to style your hair using a non direct heat source like a roller sets under a hood dryer once a week and maintain your style until your next wash day. Direct heat should only be used occasionally or never.

I would advise you to do the same with your extensions, either air dry or roller set.

Congratulations to all my clients who decide to finally do what they wanted to do with their hair for a while despite social and community pressure! It’s your life, live it! It’s your hair, wear it!

Quick POST!

The inspiration was Gabrielle Union. Joanne is a longtime client. She is beautiful and a true lover of life.

Joanne came towards the middle of december. Her go to length is always and I mean it ALWAYS 16-18 inches but this time, she was brave enough to go shorter.

She loved it! I always tell my
clients: CHANGE IS GOOD!

2016-02-08 20.05.39As for as the hair specifications, she re-used hair she previously had and I cut it into a lob.

Holla for your next rendez-vous especially if you are looking to protect your mane during the cold months!

Sabine Daniel, TV2016-02-04 20.37.29 and radio producer and host, chose me to be part of 24 women that she reffered to as ‘The Canadian Power House’ for Black History Month. Wow! Such an honor.

As women, singles mothers, mothers, professionals, sisters, caregivers, friends, we sometimes feel that what we do and how hard we work goes unnoticed so a little gesture of recognition goes a long way! Thank you Sabine Daniel. I salute you as well as all the strong black women who wear so many hats on a daily basis! Proud to be a black canadian!

So I did it!

2016-01-16 22.39.40Hey!

This is the first time I am writing in a month and it was about time!!! I have a lot of stuff store in my phone to share with you. January has been extremely busy for me but it’s time!

Sooooo I did it! After many personal debates, I snapped! I decided after an appointment with a long time client, to relax my hair again. I was natural (by default) for almost 4 years.

I say by default because it just happened since I was mostly wearing wigs and weave and sometimes my natural hair. I just stopped relaxing since it was always under a cap.

Why did I do it? Because:

1- I wanted to. It has been heavy on my mind for the past 6 months and the conversation I had with my client who was natural for a long time (even before it was a ‘trend’) was what made it for me. Honest conversation. I did it that same day.

2- I am busy. I’m always on the go. Let’s be honest, natural hair takes a lot more time than a roller set and a wrap.

3- I was become envious when I saw sisters wear a ponytail. LOL seriously I was jealous of a ponytail!!!

2016-01-21 00.05.204- I don’t have anything to prove. I believe in moderation.

5- I missed my hair. My straight hair.. as much as I liked my natural hair, I missed my hair straight.

6- There’s a lot more chemicals that we don’t talk about. As a licensed naturopathic doctor, I always find it strange that people spend so much time degrading or
calling ‘relaxed’ sisters slaves, when there is a lot more that we should consider daily. For example, fluoride in our water and the amount of chemicals in our food.. I won’t go too deep cause this is a positive post.

7- I knew I wasn’t going to regret it and I don’t. I washed, treated and roller setted my hair by myself last friday and it took me 1 hour and 15 minutes. YAY!

8- I can go back natural whenever I want. É pi that’s it!

Have a blessed and productive month of february!

I love y’all!

It’s that time of the year: December! Office parties, family gatherings and church outings! Love, laughter & creating memories.

2015-12-07 18.41.04Nathalie had a special occasion and the theme was inspired from the 20s.

She wanted to wear a long back less evening gown to go with the look.

2015-12-07 18.23.56Therefore, she wanted a low bun as well as her makeup done with bright matte red lips. Here is what we came up with!

Remember that Jesus is the reason for the season! I am rejoicing because a King was born! Nevertheless, I celebrate the birth of the King by honoring Him as king of my life every day of every season.

As I mentionned last week, please note that I will take a break during the holidays this year for the first time. I will be taking appointments until next monday december 14th and then, I will be back to work monday december 28th.

My good friend, the most popular barber in Montreal: REHUL!

Hey!

2015-11-02 01.08.58First time I heard about Rehul’s barbershop I was in high school more than 15 years ago.

The boys at my high school would travel by bus for over an hour just to make sure their line up were perfect because everyone knew Rehul could seriously hook you up!

High school fashion was serious business. Back then, brushes, vaseline and wave caps were a must!

We had to wear a uniform to school so we would use our sneakers, hair and accessories to stand out.

Having ‘good hair’ was not only a female thing. Boys were obsessed with having waves laying perfectly from the top of their head to their forehead. LOL!

rehulToday I’m shouting out Rehul Jules who’s a pioneer in Montreal’s hair game. We had the opportunity to work together on my hairshows several times and we have always kept in touch since. He is one of the coolest ‘lay back’ man I know. His work ethic, longevity and reputation talk for itself. Below is the information to his barbershop.

Congrats for a wonderful and ongoing career Rehul. All the best and many more blessings!

My 6th 2015 Celebrity Hair Crush: Mary J. Blige, the Queen of Blonde

22ndAnnualELLEWomenHollywoodAwardsArrivalsIEb5HhnOftTlHey!

Quick Post!

Mary-J-BligeMary J blige, the “Queen of Ghetto Love”, has been on the music soon for as long as I can remember. Her first album ‘What’s the 411?’ dropped in 1991 and she has been making hits ever since. Today at 44, she is still killing the hair and fashion game. 

I love this bob. Like I always say you can never go wrong with a bob. The structure gives the style character but it’s still very classy.

Blonde has always been her go to color of choice and it makes her look younger!

Mary_J_Blige_b mary-j-blige1Way to go Mary! Keep bringing it!

Have a blessed and productive week!
