KATE & BANGS … I LOVE HAIR … Roger Garcia

Today the whole world is buzzing about Kate Middletons new layered do and beautiful side wept bangs, I thought it would be great time to talk about the amazing transformation she has gone through in the last couple of months.  It is my opinion that when Kate was first introduced to us as Williams choice, her team must have thought of going for a girl next door with fuss free natural looking hair, just so she could be more relatable to us as a whole.  And it worked, I personally thought her styling was always on point, and never to drastic for the future Queen.

But with the recent transformation the whole world seems to be captivated by gorgeous cut and color.  It is no secret a good side swept bang can sex up anyone in need of a little excitement in their life, I’m sure William won’t mind.  What the overall look has actually done for her is given her a larger variety of styles to choose from.  Looking back at her styling from multiple events her hair was always the same, very little volume with soft waves down the front and curls on the bottom.  I grew bored after a while.  But after debuting her new look at London’s Natural History Museum on Tuesday, I am very sure that we’ll be seeing a lot more variety for upcoming events.Picture 2

HAIR + COLOR = LOVE FOREVER … I Love Hair!!!

Luminosity is what makes Color the most beautiful compliment to hair.
When hair shines, reflecting a light-show of rich, subtly shifting
hues, it is the most beautiful natural fiber in existence. More
stunning than fine silks. Like butterfly wings or peacock feathers, it
literally glows. Picture a stunning blonde on a grey winter sidewalk
in NYC. Everyone is dressed in black and other drab tones; heavy wools
and tweeds, gloves and hats…  She is a luminous pearl in a frozen,
dark sea and people are literally startled when they see her, like
deer caught in headlights… Captivated! Amidst the bleak cityscape, she
is her own light source.  I have seen men look up and involuntarily
gasp, caught in a moment of surprise, when women like this walk by.
And don’t think it’s NOT the hair! Trust me, if the same woman walked
by in a cap, nobody would have the same response.

Hair color has the ability to irridesce, because both the pigments and
the hair itself have a transluscent quality. Pigments can be layered,
and warm and cool tones even juxtaposed. The fact that the artistic
medium is so versatile and unique is what I love most about Hair
Color. What’s better than a gorgeous, natural light-show with
enhancements? Our cosmopolitan world is all about enhancements. The
limitless possibilities of expression and change. Everyone who wears
Color and Fashion is a unique muse with special desires.

Single process doesn’t always have to be ALL one color. What makes a
flame flicker and leap alive to the eye of the beholder? What makes a
fiery redhead so incredibly HOT? It’s the variation of shimmering
tones, blending multi-facets. Sectioning techniques can be used to
apply multiple, complimentary formulas, giving hair an iridescent
quality as the style moves. Varying shades shift.  Autumn’s pallet
allures with gold, copper, red-copper, crimson and red-violet shades.
Even the cool power of pewter, platinum and cobalt may find  fierce,
glamorous muses this coming winter!

How important are Tones?! … Roger Garcia .. I LOVE HAIR!!!

With winter already in full effect, and all of the crazy weather we have been having its hard to think that maybe we’ve started to isolate ourselves.  I know I have, I recently started wearing as many layers as I could find.  Because I have been wearing I hat so frequently it seems I haven’t really kept on track with my hair color.  As many of you you already ready know i am a blond, but tend to change the tone very frequently … its actually a quick and easy process which takes all of 20-25 minutes.

What many woman do not realize is that changing the tone of hair is possible on on shade of hair, from brunette to blond.  These quick fixes come in the form of color glazes, which are not permanent, will not leave you a line of demarcation, and approximately will last you 8 weeks (depending on frequently you shampoo).  Matching your natural hair color we can then go in and throw in a little bit more of gold if you wanted something warmer or if you were looking to tone down some warmth we could alter our formula by adding some cooler tones.

The possibilities are endless and if your looking for a  non committal type of hair color this would be great.  Even if its just to brighten you up a bit for the upcoming holiday festivities, or maybe just even out some irregular fad-age that has occurred, Glazes are definitely the solutions!

Payton has ARRIVED! … I LOVE HAIR!!!

It is my belief that fashion and hair, when combined, produce a beautiful result.  Like fabrics using for couture gowns, hair too in its own right is a spectacular textile.  The marriage of both when done properly can seriously produce a beautiful relationship.  When wearing something has amazing construction, the hair should follow suite.  Whether it be casual, black tie, or even a night out on the town, your hair must always be the ultimate accessory.  Just as when finishing an outfit with proper accessories, take the same consideration before stepping out the door without proper styling.  And a quick reminder, first impressions tend to be ever lasting in this fast paced world … so please take time to make sure the Whole look is put together.
