Mullet: back or not?

This is one of my cute clients. He always wants this weird mullet thing.

I stole these pictures off his Facebook page. So, Nate, if you read this... I love you and you know I think you are the only one who can pull off this haircut :) Don't be mad, baby. (no, we are not having an affair)

I always have a hard time cutting it. He always tells me, "Go shorter here..." "Don't cut this anymore..." etc. It takes me a good 45 minutes to cut his hair. I am not used to not being able to blend everything :)

Good thing he is cute and super funny, because otherwise it would be so ugly. I love him, so it works I guess.

Is the mullet "in?" Or is it just him being funny?

Funny story!

I got a letter today via Fed-Ex saying that I was under Trademark Infringement rights!

I guess Elizabeth Arden Inc. has used the name "Red Door" in conjunction with spas, massage, beauty parlor, and beauty counseling services for more than 60 years!

I am sending an apology letter to them, and have agreed to change the name of my blog. I thought my Grandma came up with that name! Ha ha.

The official name of my home salon was just my first and last name, as I didn't want random people calling me to do their hair. Also, since I am moving next week to Montana, I have stopped my salon business for now.

Leave a comment if you want me to continue this blog (sorry I haven't updated much lately) and I'll leave a comment on your blog to let you know that I changed the name :)

Demi-permanent hair color

Demi-permanent hair color? "What is that?" you may ask.

Well, it is a mix between permanent hair color and semi-permanent hair color. It fades after about 6 weeks, and maybe gradually washes out over time.

My hair was pretty darn bleach blonde. I always added brown highlights, because your hair always looks better if you do that, and then your roots don't look so bad when they grow in, but overall I was quite blonde. Here's a before picture...

I used Redken color, 4 WG (Warm gold) and I added just a tiny bit of 7N because I was scared it would be too dark :)... Here's what I got...

Here's what it looked like faded about 8 weeks later... (before I colored it again)
Don't you all go out and go dark on me, now! Although I do like it, I do think I look older and not as spunky! I do also think I look like a "pale face" and think I need some bronzer or a tan!

I do LOVE not having roots and feel like my hairstyles are endless now because I am not trying to hide my roots! I also must admit I feel a little sexier! :)

This is a good way to go dark if your not sure that you'll want to stay dark forever, because after it fades, it's not as hard on your hair to go blonde again!

Smaller versions...

When your daughter (or you) has short hair, you can do some of the same hairstyles, but just in smaller versions of it. Here is an example...

I did this post here with these almost knots....

And here's the smaller version I did the other day...
