Killer strands #1 goal is and always was the “CARE OF YOUR HAIR”, try to remember that is always the basis of all of my advice and teachings. Performing microscopic hair analysis on a daily basis for hair loss & damage incorporates looking at hairs magnified 1-200 times which I did for 2 years while studying Chemistry of Cosmetics, while re-couping from cancer treatments..... that alone has turned me into a freak about the HEALTH OF the haoir strands themselves, which is only good news for you.
Reason for CRIB COLORIST SCHOOL?
Being ridiculously over-trained for it, I have come to terms with that now, with my new predicament of being ill, its about all I can handle and it will be good for me and for YOU!
So many of the techniques being done today, Annie was doing 20-30 years ago, now retired, she truly is and was the Grand Dame of hair color. After her, I looked to my mentor to follow and learn from, as she moved over to Paul Mitchell. I look to her to run with the crown for the next decade or two and with the USA trying to catch up, the need to reach across the pond has diminished.
What I teach here, is what she taught , which is brilliant and it in turn earned her: Teacher of the YEAR - in Hair Colour…I don’t know how many times. So, although the education did not come from me….it is my interpretation and my slant on things after years on my own and with my personal artistic twist. Being extremely lucky in having some of the best teachers in the world -- I thank my lucky stars all the time.
This is my interpretation of a standard way that hair color works; it is chemistry, like “cooking “is. Certain ingredients perform certain actions… emulsifiers, ammonias, peroxides…they need to be used to perform certain actions period. Certain products have no grey….its black and white…its science although in order to come up various colours and new inventions we are taking all sorts of new liberties…The method I relay, is going to be as absolutely SIMPLE as possible.
Any questions at all I hope you will bring up immediately. In order for you to understand which color you should buy when you go to the store you must learn some very simple basics. So,please try to have an open mind, hair color manufacturers ‘think’ the consumer won’t take the time to learn the “LEVELS” system. I disagree. I feel with a little education, demo's and a great website we can solve that.
Why Boxed Hair Color Does Not Work Correctly .. or
How the Boxed Hair Color Manufacturers Set You Up To Fail.
These are important lessons to learn not all of you use boxed color but it is still good reading ....everything I write here is aimed at giving you education that you need to help your hair...no we are not curing cancer...
But, we are shooting for having the healthiest most beautiful hair we can possibly have and that feeling alone , feels as good as curing cancer I'm told !
I have not found a woman alive that does not feel better when their hair is cut and colored beautifully, its a truly magical experience.
