Wedding Season Is Here!

Choosing a hair dresser for your wedding day is often a top priority for bride’s (and mothers!) alike.  After months, or years of planning and constant decision making, why not take some of the pressure off by selecting the perfect stylist for the big day?  Here are HairbyAshlee’s top three things to think about when choosing a hair dresser for your wedding day.

  • YOUR BUDGET

Begin to think about who will need their hair styled for your wedding.  To ensure your pics are perfect, and in line with “your vision,” take a final count.  Don’t forget the mothers…!  They will appreciate the grand gesture, and won’t soon forget your willingness to include them in the festivities (which will go a long way!).

Are You Fall Ready?

Get fall ready with a few tips from a professional!

A good haircut... Remove all of the sun and saltwater damage from your ends with more than just a little trim! For those trying to grow out their hair, there is a way to achieve this fresh fall look without feeling that you`ve lost the length you have worked so hard for.

Tone down your colour! For blondes, add a few low lights or just tone your ‘summer blonde’ colour with a toner. This way you can be a fabulous blonde all year without feeling bleached out! This process will also bring a lot of shine back to your hair so don’t be afraid, give it a try. For the ‘non blondes’ a little pick-me-up of your colour or a toner will take away any warm tones that occured over the summer and will give you that much needed shine.

COLOR.BUG

After speaking to some of my clients, I found that most women in the working world yearn for outrageous hair colours! Who ever said pinks, blues and purples were “unprofessional.” Well, it seems to be a theme in the typical 9-5 office environment.

As a stylist, I don’t think one should stick to the same look… A girl could get bored! And so my search began for the perfect temporary hair colour to make their dreams a reality.

After much thought, and quite a few “test bunnies” I found Kevin Murphy’s COLOR.BUG. Kevin also found it difficult to achieve a classic look with a pop of colour all on a temporary basis. Crazy colours were all the rage on runways around the world, but he couldn’t justify colouring his model’s hair every time he needed a pop of blue or orange. Kevin wanted to put the colour on, and just as easily, take it off, avoiding hair damage and discolouration.

Great Lengths

Through every hair era, there is one thing that has always been desired by most... "BIG hair" !! There is no better time to have BIG hair than the present!

Now... To have big hair is to have longer, fuller, shinier hair. BIG hair no longer means a crazy spiral perm or a teased up roller set laquered in spray. It truly defines your look, and will take you to that next level! Your hair will be the best it can be with two fabulous words.. Great Lengths!

Great Lengths are an amazing hair extension that utilizes only "Remy" hair. If your in the market for extensions, you should be looking for this type of hair. It`s the only kind that has all the cuticle layers facing in the same direction from root to end. This way, the hair does not tangle like other extensions and feels and looks extremely natural. When compared to other extensions, Great Lengths colour process, method of bonding and overall quality is among the best in the world! Great Lengths have always been my favourite and the best, in my opinion!
