  2. I love the paint drips. Did you get my email for the HCC? I resent it because today I received a generic email from you confirming payment.

  3. Wow! It makes me feel outdated! What about "age-appropriate" hair color and style? At what age is it too much?

  4. AJColor : Yes. I did respond. The confirmation I sent you, is as abbreviated a form as I need. Most people don't want to write a whole lot. The confirmation has very specific questions I need answered, so I might get through the hundreds of emails and Consults I get daily.

    I'm sorry, I just don't have time for long stories, or I would not be able to do this at all.
    Hope That Helps

  5. DH,
    When I look and talk about hair color I still relate it to what my client base mostly was when I was working in Salons, etc. That's just normal.
    I also have 2 daughters in that age group so its just normal for me.

    What does the 2nd part mean ???
    At what age is it too much

  7. :-( DAMN ...i tried really hard to like paint drips on whitney but ouch err makes her look old and tired..

    I guess it's less to do with the color technique more to do with the hair style.... The style just doesnt do it for me ....Based just one photo she looks WAY better in the blonde pic than in the brunette pic (again, i think more to do with style than the actual color)...

    I dunno ..im on the fence.....some ppl just can rock highlights and some rock paint drips....she rocks Highlights..... ...dunno the paint drips makes her hair look fried.

    I guess that is my question! At what age is it too much? Sometimes it feels that if hair is too much darker than grey it is a bit harsh. But... it could also be I am stuck in a rutt!

  9. I like the first pic better too. The color and style make her look so young and fresh. I dont care if its highlights or drips, it just looks better in the first picture.

  10. I thought she looked better blonde, too, but when I found some better pictures of the new style, it grew on me. http://www.bellasugar.com/1140968

    One pic is wavy, one straivy; very nice.

  11. I really like the second picture much better. I am just having trouble seeing the highlights in the first. Isn't that picture of a single color blonde all over?? Can someone explain. Thanks.

    The idea of new hair styles and new hair colors are to complement new fashions. I never realized that till I hit Vidal Sassoon Academy. Believe me I almost quit 12 times in the first 3 months, this place was so wacky to me at first. If you were to ever watch the hair shows in England 4 times a year, their goals are to set new trends and styles in hair the exact same way as you are used to seeing for your clothes. We are just 'behind' here in the states.

    It would be boring if we all kept the same hair color or cuts year after year....its funny before I opened up and let the hair industry teach me how it works...I felt the same way a lot of you do. I was in hair academy at the grand old age of 39 after 16 years as a very successful Stunt woman in Hollywood. I was not what you call, "ready" to let them tell me what was up with hair.

    But they finally broke me, and I can only thank them for ultimately setting me up with Killer Strands something that has helped me keep my piece of mind, while ill.

    What I hoped to teach with this Blog was HOW the elite of the hair industry work to the general public. I wanted to GIVE BACK to total strangers within America, for my own mini-legacy. Something that has never really been done before. Whether you choose to follow it or not, is always always your own

    Open your mind

  15. Im someone whos never had a highlight put on my hair in my whole life, so I cant say that Im stuck in that trend. Having an open mind means being open to others opinions too. I like the blonde pic better. I like the brown hair alright, but given the choice between the two, I like the blonde better, and I usually like brown much better. I think whatever looks good on a person, go for it. I dont see a reason to knock the blonde look, she looks great with it. I dont see anything out of date or overdone about it.

  16. I TA with the posts that say Whitney looks better with the blonde highlights. In fact, it looks more natural. Although, I bet her 'natural' is more brown. The darker version is what my hair looked like after it had been dyed and stripped than dyed back to brown again, then washed out over several weeks! If you walked into a salon with that second pic hair colour, stylists would tell you your hair needed 'work' and want to 'fix' it. This is the irony and hypocrisy of the salon industry! When a professional does it it's 'paint drips', when you do it at home, it's called a 'disaster' and in need of colour correction! JMO!

  17. That light of hair on Whit no more looks natural than Tyra Banks array of daily hair styles on her show. Light Level 9, 10,11 & 12 are so rare you can go a couple months and never see a single one.
    Even NATURAL level 8 is pretty rare
