On May 9, 2012, world class hairdresser and pioneer Vidal Sassoon passed away in his Los Angeles home at the age of 84. Vidal Sassoon liberated women from the 50s era of bouffants and beehives, where previously women had to maintain the up keep with weekly visits to beauty parlors. As a hair architect, Vidal envisioned hair to take on a different form beyond shampoo sets, over teasing and a lacquer finish. Read more

At the San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday, April 21, I volunteered at a charity booth to raise funds for the victims of the Northern Japan Earthquake that tragically occurred last year. I decorated hair with feathers and flowers. We raised $5379.50 in total, and 100% of the proceeds will be sent to The Ashinaga Fund and The Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. I also created an updo for the Cherry Blossom, Hawaiian beauty pageant princess Nicole Kinney. It was such a fulfilling experience to be able to help others by doing something with my own skills.
For the 2012 Spring/Summer season, make way for yummy orange lips! They are the season’s essentials! Some of my personal favorites are Guerlain’s Rouge G Gypsy #41 and YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture #21. Both colors will give you a vibrant orange tone with a touch of electric tangerine. I love to partner these with a pop of color on the cheek with Guerlain’s Terracotta Bronziing Powder #1, which is a gorgeous mosaic of almond and peach hues, or YSL’s Blush Radiance #2, which is a natural blend of corals. Have fun playing and enjoy!
If you are hearing about Pinterest for the first time, you may want to stop reading this now, because if you are anything like me - someone who is easily sucked into the cyberspace of social media, then add Pinterest to your list of internet addictions. The thing I love about Pinterest is that I can make my own digital vision board with pics on the web and with pics from my own personal collection. There is no more organizing magazine clippings and searching around the house for scissors, glue and poster board. Read more
Alright boys...where do I begin? I suppose I should start by saying this is for all those fellas that need a little help in the haircut department. You know there is nothing worse than when I’m walking up behind a guy and I can tell that they just stepped out of a barber shop from some hair dresser's botched job with the clippers. The neckline is the greatest give away Read more
