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!

Have a blessed & productive week!

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!

Black Don’t Crack! Go Granma!

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.

Flavor in your usual Bob!

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!

After 3 months of wearing my hair relaxed, I needed to rest it before summer. I also had a few big events coming so it was a good time to change it up!

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!

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!

2016-02-18 20.04.01Hey!

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!
