The Hair I'm Loving Now!

I thought I was loving long hair for winter until I saw Scarlett Johansson's new bob and model Britt Maren's choppy crop cut.

Redondo Beach Riviera Village Holiday Stroll

Tomorrow night is the Redondo Beach Riviera Village Holiday Stroll!!!! It's cold out (was it ever warm in the year 2010?) and the holiday lights are strung and that's all I need to hear to come out and drink wine courtesy of all the Riviera shops. If you haven't come down to the village for the "stroll" then you are really missing out! Catalina Ave will be shut down to traffic and all the shops will be open for wine! Michael Trujillo Salon will be open for people to stop by, say hi and have a glass or more of wine, I'll be there for a little bit before I do my own "stroll" around the village. The Riviera Holiday Stroll is from 5-9pm and on Catalina Ave between Ave I and Palos Verdes Blvd.

L'Oreal INOA Ammonia Free Hair Color

Last week I took a certification course for L'Oreal's new permanent ammonia free hair color called INOA. It was a great course and I had a lot of education on how ammonia free permanent hair color can and does really work, even covering 100% grey. This is just one step in being "more green" without compromising the quality of the product that happens so often. Call and make your appointment today so you can see for yourself what I'm so excited about!!! 310-619-0691

LAC+USC Womens Health PSA Commercial

"Rosa and Her Mother"

I had the great pleasure to do the hair for the LAC+USC Womens Health PSA commercial titled "Rosa's Checkup". The shoot took place at County USC hospital located in East L.A. and was produced by Jean Vaughan and directed by Kristina Casey Kiesler. The whole cast, crew and talent were amazing and the day flew by with lots of laughs. Make sure to look for the commercial!!

Dress Up Your Hair

Are you getting a little bored with your hair? Not sure if you want a new cut or color? Well if you are unsure with exactly what you want, then maybe now isn't the time for a big change. Instead start to play around with your hair, dressing it up with different hair accessories. At the 2011 NYC fashion week barrettes were a huge trend. Barrettes are a fun way to dress up any outfit and can add a little flash of color to your hair. Have fun and don't be afraid to play around, there are no rules with this fun look.

Goodby The Hive

I'm no longer at The Hive of Los Angeles Salon. I'm concentrating all my energy and time at Michael Trujillo Salon in Redondo Beach, as well as doing hair for print and film work. It was a great two years at The Hive but it was time to move on! I'm excited to just be at one salon again!! Come say hi and send in your friends. Remember the holidays are just around the corner, so make your appoitments now.

2011 NYC Fashion Week

2011 New York City Fashion Week just ended with lots of exciting trends in hair. Out with the shine serums and sprays and in with the matte texture pastes and sprays. Natural texture and volume are taking over the flatiron smooth hair look, which couldn't come at a better time. After the summer months of chlorine pools, beach sun and the hot heat, we all know that our hair could use a little break from the heat tools. One great way to bring out natural texture is to wash hair at night, let hair air dry 75% and then pull hair into a high bun or into two side braids. In the morning untie your hair, spray a little dry shampoo into the roots (this will help add volume and also dry up any shine left in your hair), and apply some matte paste or pomades to the ends of your hair.

My New Must Have

Osis Dust It is my new favorite must have product of the moment. It works by adding volume to already dry hair. Simply sprinkle some Dust It on your roots after drying, flat ironing or curling your hair, then rub into the roots. The outcome it major volume that you can play around with and smooth down. The compact size also makes it ideal for your purse or clutch. Everyone must try this amazing product!!

Summer Braids

Braids are hot this summer, everyone from celebrities to models on the runway are sporting the hot new look. It's a simple way to update your look from day to night with little effort. The key to this look is by keeping the braid messy. Simply braid the hair in a loose manner and attach the end of the hair with a rubber band. Start to spread out the the braid and pull some lose strands out. Have fun playing around with this hot summer look!

Time To Shine

Everyone loves shiny and healthy looking hair but few of us actually have this kind of hair. Thanks to bleach, bleach and more bleach, almost every blond has pretty dull lackluster frizzy hair. One problem with processing your hair year after year or decade and decade is that the chemicals we use to process color, bleach, straighteners, perms, etc strip the hair of protein. Protein is the main structure in hair and it is what keeps our hair healthy looking. Once hair is striped of protein, the hair starts to look stressed, but lucky for us we can replenish that loss of protein with different protein masks or packs.
One great product that I love is the Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle by Davines. This Vegetarian Miracle will start to change the structure of your hair after the first use and you will defiantly notice a change. It is very important to follow any directions on the label because it is possible to get to much protein.
Some people come to me and tell me that they have been sleeping with a protein conditioner in there hair at night. AAAHHHH, I cringe!!! This is the worst thing you can do because there is a fine line of not enough protein and too much protein in your hair. When the hair gets to much protein the the hair becomes too strong and will actually snap or break. Most directions will say to leave the product on for 5-20 minutes. If you follow the directions then you will see amazing shiny healthy hair in 4-6 weeks.

Fun With Extensions

Spring is here and now that it's getting nice outside everyone likes to look there best. One great way to change up your look and the length of your hair is through extensions.
There are many options when deciding what kind of extensions you want, and clip-in extensions are great for a quick fix without a lot of effort or expense. Clip-In extensions are a fast and easy way to change up your look for a fun night out or for a special event. Make sure the hair you buy is real hair and not synthetic. Real hair will be much more expensive than synthetic but the quality and versatility will be much greater.
