Schwarzkopf Color with Olaplex

Lauren G.
Full Highlight with Schwarzhopf Bleach and Olaplex
I am loving Olaplex. I can now take my blonde clients blonder and push the limits farther with zero damage. Lauren has been getting highlights with me for over a year now. Today she decided she wanted to do a very light platinum blonde highlight creating the look of an overall lighter color. She is a natural medium to light ash blonde with very fine, fragile hair. I used Schwarzhopf bleach with Olaplex. Becuse of Olaplex I was able to color root to ends over her previously lightened hair without compromising the health or integrity of her hair. The end result was even shinier than before coloriong and her hair felt stonger than ever.


I'm excited to announce I am now offering Olaplex in addition to my color services in my salon. Olaplex repairs bonds broken during thermal, chemical, and mechanical services. Go lighter with no breakage. Olaplex will make your hair stronger, healthier, and your color last longer.

Sombre Color

Christina G. -Sombre Color
Christina has been my client for quite some time. Over the years I have been giving her a deep espresso gloss and Brazilian Blowouts. She was ready for a change and interested in Ombre highlighting. She wanted a very subtle change that looked natural. Christina wears her hair straight most often so a seamless graduation of color was a must. She takes very good care of her hair and keeping it healthy was also top priority.
I gave her "Sombre" hair- "soft ombre". A more subtle look than Ombre color. I graduated a subtly lighter color through her ends with some face framing pieces.  Next, I gave Christina a Brazilian Blowout.  The result, exceptionally shiny hair with color transitioning from her deep espresso brown to a beautiful rich, warm caramel throughout ends.

Babylights: Current Hollywood Hair Color Trend

Bye bye Ombré, hello Babylights!
Yes! Its time for change in haircolor trends and I always love natural looking color.  Babylight highlights mimic the look of a child's hair after being the sun and are great for both blondes and brunettes. Read on....

Anna, Color and Cut

Anna has been my client over a year now.  Her natural color is dark blonde.  She had never colored her hair before so I had a perfect canvas to work with. (Not to mention she is gorgeous!)  I recently gave Anna several shades of light blonde highlights ranging from icy, pale blonde to light, golden blonde.  I have changed the placement of her highlights over time concentrating the lightest colors around her face for a natural beachy look.  I also cut face framing pieces to give shape to her long, fine hair.

Ally L, Ombre Color

My favorite client! My lovely daughter. I did Ally's ombré color over a year ago. One of the great things about ombré color is that it is low maintenance. I used Schwarzkopf colors to highlight a Ally's natural color in her crown and to add light golden blonde throughout her ends.

Cover Model Natalia Kern- Color and Hair Cut

I did both a color and cut for Natalia just before her shoot for the March cover of Ultra Fit magazine. I gave Natalia a subtle change to her rich, brunette color by adding warm, deep golden tones. I also do a clear gloss over her hair to add shine so her color looks fabulous both under the studio lights and at home with her little ones. (Believe it or not she's two months pregnant here!).
