What INSPIRED you in the 1st place?

As we grow and life’s circumstances change I find myself envisioning what the next 5 years in my career and personal life will look like.  My husband and I were sipping wine the other night, (as we often do)  pondering that exact question…  What will our life really look like in 5 years time?  We […]

Maintenance Mayhem!

Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance! Jobs, kids, grocery shopping, working out, cleaning, organizing, and managing to keep up a social life in the meantime, leaves us hardly any time these days to keep ourselves looking our best.

Hair 911 and 411!

  Living in Houston for the last 4 years has been quite the climate change for me, given that I grew up in Cali where the weather is 60 – 75 degrees year round.  Yesterday it was in the 50’s and today the kids are home for a “snow day,” go figure!  What I’ve learned […]

Passionately Platinum!

    As I’m building and creating my blog hairloveandmakeup, I’m searching high and low for images of hair color that I love. Some are too sexy, others plain boring, but what I’m finding stands out the most are those pictures that tell me a story. When I look at this blonde I see so […]

Red with a hint of Violet… Ombre!

This beautiful, adventurous, olive skinned beauty happens to be one my favorite clients. Her spontaneous personality and love of fashion trends makes her the perfect client to try that something new on. She first came to me as a color correction years ago after she put black box color on her hair. Our mission was […]
