✧ How to Cut the PERFECT Long Bob ✧ ("Lob Haircut")

This is my very first haircut tutorial! It makes me really nervous to share a cutting video because I'm not a "technical" lingo stylist, I know what things are called, but I'm more of a relaxed cutter. So I dug back into my hair school days and created a headset for all the technical cutters. It's probably not the best, but Im proud of it and it breaks down the cut so you can really see the sections and partings which are major key factors to any cut.

My client Monica emailed me wanting to do this hair cut but was nervous about chopping her hair off. Funny things was that I got this email as I was getting my own hair cut! So I was really excited to share with her my experience and how much I was loving my new hair. It's important as a stylist to try out a few looks and keep with the current styles because your clients will be looking to you for direction. If your scared, they will be too. After that she booked an appointment and came in. I have so much fun transforming people with cuts, there is nothing like having thick healthy hair! Check out the video and see my favorite way to cut the perfect long bob!

This is basically how Nikki cut my hair back in my vlog video! I wanted to share this for anyone who is looking into getting their hair done like this, or for those who are learning to cut! I wish I had more videos back when I was learning because the haircutting part was the hardest for me to learn. Especially since I'm left handed. Thank you so much for watching my very first hair cutting tutorial, I hope you all enjoy!

Considering my hair was "at my waist," only the few pitiful stands that were still long, this was a big cut for me! I haven't had my hair shorter then below my chest since middle school. But after all the color and things I've done to it, it was time to cut off the dry damaged ends and start with a fresh healthy look! I picked out a few cuts and showed my stylist Nikki.

You can watch my blog and follow me to the salon to get the cut. Thank you so much for watching, and a big thank you to Nikki for my rad new hair! Don't forget to check out the haircutting tutorial that will be uploading at the end of the week!

Purple/Magenta Permanent Hair Color Makeover ★ UNICORN+MERMAID SERIES

You know when you get that incredible feeling as you finish a project and go to stand back to see what you just did. I am so FLIPPING EXCITED to share Heathers hair make over with you! This is her very first experience doing anything out of the regular color realm, she has crossed worlds into unicorn/mermaid land. The most magical and exciting land of all! You guys should know by now how much these colors excite me, I mean how do you not want to smile when looking at vibrant hair?

This color is permanent. Yeah. Crazy. When Heather sent me her inspiration picture I was a bit thrown off. Color like this isn't available in every line, especially not the permanent line. Sure you can mix a temporary fashion shade no problem, but the maintenance is a lot of time and money. When your getting into your first experience with brighter colors, that can be very off-putting. So I went to my computer and asked around and a few stylist's shared their experience with ISO 4VV! I'm always grateful when other artist share their knowledge, that is after all why I do these videos. Along with that shade I also picked up Joico's 4FV, a more muted darker purple. 

In the video you can see how I went though the process to ensure a bright color and her end result. Sometimes I like to layer a fashion shade for more of a pop. But we were both so happy with the color alone we didn't even do a coat of a purple color over the top. Since her hair was yellow before we put the 4VV over it, the end result was more of a purple/magenta. Such a gorgeous and unique color for such a beautiful girl!

I can't tell you how happy I am that I was able to take Heather though this journey. She is such a sweetheart, and I can't wait to see what she wants to do next. I also wanted to let you know what she is a jewelry maker and has an amazing collecting, Chromia and Crystal, for sale on Etsy. Her style is very bohemian and affordable, be sure to go check that out after you watch the video!
