(1/3) I relieved Jasmine of at least 6inches of length and gave her some layers. She has SO MUCH HAIR. She only manages to come back once a year so every inch matters if I'm not going to see her for another 12 months! She's a busy mom who needs low maintenance.

Vintage waves, side pulled formal style for my client @n_elli. She loves to bring me challenges and I love to slay them. So fun today. With a bang trim, extensions and Shimmerlys. #formalhairstyle #formalstyle #bridalhair #vintagelook #vintagewaves

Lindsey and the "Whammer Jammer" Saturday. A color overhaul/correction and a Brazilian Blowout. 6 hours later she emerges blonder and completely pin straight. Lindsey's hair is super resistant to lift, even with strong bleach. Much of her existing color pattern was lifted again for the second (and maybe even third) time to get her up to a shade of blond that isn't brassy. A strong toner and a trim make all the difference when you're overlapping old and new hair color. #ombré #ombrehair #ombreoftheday #highlights

So much blonde happening right now as LA moves into summertime! This is @valleygirliz who has so much blonde living in her heart that we had to put it all in her hair. She's been blonde before and appeared in some of my other before and afters, but this is absolutely the most blonde we have ever made her. This was her first set of highlights in a YEAR (which you can tell in those before pics). Love the sassy selfie at the end! •

Afters then befores! Wow!

Did a crazy thing yesterday. My client @aimee_k has been doing a solid bleach base for as long as she's been my client, and then some. Yesterday, we changed that and after a long few months of communication and a final consult (where I might have even been more nervous than her) we decided to go in and break up that hard line with a random set of heavy, heavy highlights. I used slicing and weaving. I made sure to leave enough of her natural color in that, although she may get roots, they will not be as demarcated as a solid base color's new growth would be. It took all day since I don't have an assistant to help me with foils and mixing, but she was patient and it was well worth it. It appears like there was never a solid color to begin with. And that's all I had hoped for! She was very happy! We even cheers'd with some white wine for some new white blonde hair at the end! Game changing!

The other day @sashafromfacebook_ came in and wanted something different but wasn't sure what direction she wanted to go. She had previously been a deep crayola red. As we all know, color corrections are a huge undertaking, but I took a gamble on an old hairstylist trick called a #bleachwash. I bleach washed her twice with 40vol to loosen up old red pigment and then lighten the red base out. We ended up with a much brighter soft base that we decided to cover with a bright orange, chili pepper demi perm color. The #copperred was so beautiful!!! After all that, I cut off 4 inches and gave her a really sexy, one length #bluntcut. We were both so obsessed with it. •

Did this beauty's hair yesterday. I love how free she lets me be with her color placement. A natural level 4/5 base and painted in highlights covered with a custom pravana vivids mix. 😍😍 @nutritionofbeauty thank you for everything

Sometimes when you need color inspiration, look no further than your own childhood. @kgayanka needed a pick me up before her birthday next week. She sent me a few pictures of some intensified, blonded red heads. She had such beautiful naturally red hair it seemed a shame to cover it but we decided that coloring to cover gray (eek), lighten and gold her natural shade back to childhood color was the best option. We colored over some existing lowlights I'd been doing to cover the intermittent grays but when it was all said and done, no correction was needed to blend the two shades. The old color had faded enough that with some high volume developer, I cut into it and managed to blend it with a single process. This was her first time doing a full head of a one color base application. We were both very pleased with the result. Happy birthday @kgayanka!!!

Perfect headshot hair for my boy Aaron. Redesigned and corrected a chop shop haircut so he could slay this shoot. Nailed it. #mensfashion #menshair #menshaircut #menshairstyles #losangeles #weho #hollywood #laarea #hairstylist #salonrepublic #salonrepublicweho #hairbysommer #sommerhairla #vanityvault

#haircut for Miss Mom-To-Be, Stacey! After seeing herself on camera for a work project, she decided she wanted something a little more grown up and styled for her hair. A heavily #layeredbob styled with some waves compliments her gorgeous cheek bones and definitely gives her a more professional look! Mission accomplished!

@valleygirliz with an undercut and a design. Fresh color done today too. #undercut #styledhair #shavedhead #styledhair #womensundercut #girlundercut

New "do" on Miss Liz, one of my best friends for life. We cut off about a foot of hair, gave her choppy textured layers and bangs and went and put in all new #highlights. I tried to leave her darker but she looks so amazing as an ashy blonde, I went nuts and made her heavily highlighted. Curls for impact. Definitely had an #ecaille, #tortoiseshell effect on her hair. #lovingthis

I love when I end up all Twinsies with my clients! Haha. Also, I love chopping off long locks! Kita came all the way from Portland, Oregon to get her #lob cut. We cut off about 10 inches of hair and gave her this sexy #fringe! #bangs are in for winter! Love it!!! And forgive my appearance- I was battling a pretty gnarly cold that day. I look a mess!

Ombré touch up on Addie. When ombré is blended right it is able to grow out seamlessly. The last time she sat for color was 6 months ago! While #ombré is a longer appointment to sit through, it ultimately is a very low maintenance color choice. We went with a more muted, dusty rose, peachy blonde for her #sombré. #obsessed!

Two color #highlight on Leah. #mediumblonde shade towards the back and #bleachhighlights toward the front. Blending of both at the ends for a soft, natural #sunkissed look.
