Super fun transitional color. My client wanted to remain light while beginning the transition back to the dark side. Loving this summer #bronde - swipe 👈🏼 for the before shot

And one more because 🌈😍👏 @cutnstylebell repping @nothingbutpixies with the shirt, @pulpriothair for the hair. #1000orbust

Did you guys know that you should put dry shampoo in your 🧖🏻‍♀️ clean hair right after you 🚿 shampoo and style? It helps to absorb the oil as it develops so when you wake up on day 2 you aren’t greasy! 💁‍♀️ : : : #gardner #gardnerks #kcstylist #redken #redkenobsessed #summitsalon #gardnerstyle #modernsalon #americansalon #behindthechair #stylistssupportingstylists #redkenready #beautylaunchpad #hairstylist #pillowproof #dirtyhairdontcare #day1 #twodayextender #dryshampoo #styletips #hairtips #lifehacks

@cutnstylebell requested neon iridescent locks, and here’s a little clip of the finished result! Rocking her @nothingbutpixies short hair don’t care shirt peeking out from the bottom of the vid. This was so much fun to do, I really stepped outside of my own box with the placement and execution of this. Actual photos to come soon 🖤🌈💫 @pulpriothair is the paint on one of my favorite canvases, as usual! #1000orbust #Iridescent

😱 #Repost @beautylaunchpad ・・・ This is so fascinating! 🙀 Have you noticed this? Will you reconsider consultations as a result? 🤔@camouflageandbalayage #beautylaunchpad . Here’s a little food for thought 🤔 The Pictures were taken with my iPhone 8plus BUT!!!! Here’s what they LOOK 👀 LIKE ON BOTH SAMSUNG AND IPAD TABLETS. DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT!!! All the pictures on the left are what my photos LOOK like on my Samsung Galaxy 2 tablet. All the pictures on the right side of the grid are how the photos appear on an IPAD. Some of the comments I get sometimes have baffled me on “ what a beautiful golden tone it is” and I’m thinking 🤔 Really? Because in the picture I’m looking at it’s really icy ❄️ This is so fascinating to me! None of these colors have been edited at all. This is what they LOOK like on both tablets. So now at least I understand some of the comments on tonality. In all honesty, The Samsung pictures are not even close to being accurate. The IPad pictures are 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ Another 🤔🤔🤔 So what are you viewing your pictures on? When you’re viewing the photos on a Samsung and send them to your hairdresser who is viewing them on Apple then wtf do we even really see???? 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

Sad to say bye to this girl tonight! ❤️ I love building relationships with clients, which makes it even harder when they have to move away. 😫She started seeing me last year and this was her FOURTH session of balayage. ✨ She started out with long, virgin brunette hair and has fallen in love with going lighter & shorter 🙌 the blonde bug is a real thing 🤷🏼‍♀️ it takes time to get those bright blonde pops, especially with balayage. Swipe for her before of her first time coming in! 💕🌸

Beneath the follicle 101: Consultation is key 🔑 the relationship between the hairstylist and the client is so important. I am pretty darn lucky 🍀with my clients. Our roots run deep. Great friendships with each one. I always tell my clients especially new ones that we must be on the same team otherwise we aren't a good fit. I educate my clients and they love that. Some don't care and just tell me to do whatever 😆 I like that too sometimes haha. Here are 8 things you should cover in your next consultation: 1. Ask questions because we can't read minds, wellll sometimes but not every time 2. Show inspirational pictures and go over them and what you like about each one. Remember sometimes they are filtered. 3. Talk about goals and steps or what the process is going to be to get you where you want to be. 4. Talk about options. Hopefully the pro will offer suggestions. 5. Listen and repeat. make sure you understand by repeating it back. 6. Talk about maintenance 7. Talk about home care 8. Talk about pricing for next visit Lastly, make sure you feel at home because we value you and want you to feel comfy. Please trust your pro because we want what's best for your hair. If you don't and you go somewhere and it becomes a disaster then you'll be right back in the chair and now it's our disaster. . .ps this cute little lady came in with stripped hair color and we are fixing it slowly. Loved having you @hair_by_lysss can't wait to have you again and cheers to 4 more weeks of beauty school 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼♥️
