The holidays are such a great time to be able to express yourself with all the cheer and merriment that’s in the air. I love it when people have non-traditional holiday parties or theme parties because I feel like this gives us hairdressers a chance to express ourselves as well.
It seems like this season is more about haircuts/styling than it is about "updos". I've been encouraging my guests to make a change in their cut or color during the holidays, rather than doing some elaborate "do". What better time to showcase a new style than at a family gathering or holiday party?
One of my style change inspirations has been:
How can someone want a change but not want to change anything about their look? It sounds silly, but it happens all the time! We all get bored with our look and want something new, without changing color or sacrificing any length with their haircut. I have been chatting to my fellow stylists here at the Northgate Gene Juarez Salon and we brainstormed a few ways to “work our magic” and create 'change', even with strict boundaries.
i love street art and finding graffiti art from different countries by different artists. i also have been following different photo shoots and videos that inspire me as well. i think as artists we need to always be looking at all different art forms to keep our minds wrapped around it all, and to see and feel what other artists create.
the studio events were really great in every way! my favorite part was connecting, sharing and building relationships with other artists in the industry. it is so inspiring to share our passion with each other. i can't wait to see everyone again next time!

the culture of our salon business has been built around connections and relationships and we take that very seriously. the quality of those connections comes when there is authenticity, transparency and a simple genuineness involved. so, naturally this blog is our forum to create that.
