In the sense of hair chalking, it is creating a truly temporary design to your hair, by accenting different strands of hair in strong vibrant colors.
Step 1. Section out a panel that you wish to chalk and then dampen your hair using a spray water bottle, like so:
Step 2. Working with the dampened hair section, hold it tight and rub the colored pastel chalk downward going with the grain of the hair.

Well we think you need a drink!
There are so many things to be thankful for, even more so on a day like today. We should all be thankful for the amazing world that we live in and the amazing industry we are apart of.
When I read this article I just had to post it and share it with everyone!

“Published by SalonGalaxy.comBeing Inspired by a Blind Hairdresserby: Arthur DiGiacomo
On a whole we our own a group of talented individuals in an industry full of amazing creativity, but the individual ego and our competitive nature sometimes does not allow for the true meaning, of why we are who we are to shine through.As I waited for everyone to join me in the conversation on a conference call, I could not help but think how a person without sight, might be able to have a career as a hairdresser in the beauty industry. It was when I was a creative young upcoming hairdresser that I use to kid with my clients and say I could cut their hair with my eyes closed. (Yes, I would shut my eyes and take a snip).As you know hairdressing is a visionary profession. A profession where the work needs to been seen to be appreciated and especially to know completely about facial structures, hair texture, color and motion to create the looks that get published and win awards. We preach that education is the key to success in the beauty industry.I am here to add it also takes a determination to bear the brunt of a bad marriage, money, drugs, alcohol, abuse, depression, and especially the will to live through life and what it bestows on us on a personal level, from time to time.I have said many times to my children, friends, and colleagues that it is life’s experiences that give you wisdom. But to gain that wisdom we need the desire to learn – “It is important to go through life being a good speaker and teacher, but it is more important to be a great listener and student”.The longer we live the more we learn. Wisdom is gained through Experience !
- Every time you think you have enough Wisdom to Teach – You Learn
- Every motivational speaker who encourages us – Listens
- Every Educator who instructs us – Is Inspired
We hope you enjoy all of your delicious yummies today!
But while your cooking and eating all of your great delights, don’t forget… Food is not just for eating!
Check out these great beauty tips that you can achieve with your Thanksgiving ingredients.
1. Hair Conditioning Mask. Main Ingredient: Olive Oil.
As many of you may or may not know, olive oil is an active ingredient in a lot of hydrating and smoothing based hair care products. But, did you know you can use it by itself as an excellent mask for all your conditioning needs. (please note this is not something you want to do often as it is highly concentrated and can rupture the hairs natural environment if over used; however, it is a great at home treatment that can be used form time to time)
Apply 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil into your hands and slightly warm up the oil by rubbing your hands together. Starting on the ends of your hair apply the oil throughout the hair all the way towards the scalp of your head. The amount you’ll use should vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
Next, use a warm, damp towel and wrap it around your head, covering the treated hair. Leave it on for approximately 45 minutes.
Finally, rinse out the olive oil with shampoo, approximately 2-3 shampoos is ideal. Allow your hair to air dry.
2. Body Scrub. Main Ingredient: Brown Sugar
To create the scrub, mix together one half cup of coarse brown sugar with one tablespoon of honey, a little olive oil, and 1/4 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.
Apply the scrub over your entire body, then rinse. The scrub not only smells delicious, but leaves your skin feeling ultra-smooth.
This scrub will help to get rid of dry winter skin, as well as prep your body for any sunless tanner you may be applying.
Hey everyone. I know it’s borderline Thursday. However, being that it is Thanksgiving eve I was traveling in a car for a few hours making me a little late for this post.
But have no fear, Hair Color Wednesday (Thursday shh!) is here!:
So last Hair Color Wednesday we showcased Demetria Lovato’s new red hair. If you missed that check it out here
Well 2 weeks later we are looking at a similar situation and the exciting part is, we have before and afters! So check it out!:
We decided to prep color her hair. The reason we decided to do this is because we wanted a strong foundation of copper in her hair while at the same time encouraging a slight amount of gold within the color.
We only processed this color for 10 minutes.
Once Processed we applied our final color gloss on her hair dry.
We wanted to use a formula for her color that was rich in copper but still emphasized a little red. We also wanted to make sure we had a strong amount of depth to her color to really brighten her eyes and skin tone.
And this was our final look:

From what I have seen around the WWW it seems most of the Internet has claimed Christina Aguilera the worst dressed at the AMA’s last night. That’s cool and well I kind of get it. But…..
I liked it so much, I figured I would do a little how to style inspired by Christina Aguilera’s hair from the AMA’s.
The style is more about creating the texture she had. Once you get the texture you can have fun with it! I made it super messy and big – Think modern 1980′s big hair! Is that an oxymoron? Or is it just not even possible? Well….. You decide:
