Making a Splash

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Blonde is so in right now. Ombre, balayage, and pastel hair colors have been convincing us to lighten our locks. It seems like almost everyone has tried at least one of these trends recently. Although women are typically the ones keeping up with hair coloring trends, I’ve seen a lot guys lately that have been […]

Red in February

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

February is a great month for the color red.  Think Valentine Day, red lips, red flames in the fire, red silky pajama’s, raspberry’s and champagne, lobsters and of course red hot candies.  Of course, one should have chocolate with all of the above. So how about a beautiful chocolate hair color, mixed with auburn lowlights. […]

The January Itch

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

For the past three weeks, the term “New Year, New You” has been exchanged a time or two (or thirty). January is the season for changes and improvements. Not to mention, the holidays are over, it’s cold, and we’re stuck inside for another two months. If you’re anything like the Collage Salon staff, the combination has […]

Believe in Magic!

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

There are several points in the year that make people want creative hair color. Whether it’s adding a few more highlights in the summer, or going a rich auburn in the fall, many transformations follow the change in season. Although it’s (unfortunately) just mid-winter, I love bringing in the new year with new hair. Although […]

Ombre-Still on Top!

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

So many styles come and go.  Do you remember when everyone was getting feathers in their hair?  That was fun, as a salon owner, I wish they would come back in fashion.  When ombre first came out a few years ago, most hairstylist cringed.  It looked like someone forgot to touch up their highlights.  After […]

Long Hair

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

As a hair dresser for many years, I know a thing or two about long hair.  Everyone keeps asking me what is in style for hair this year.  Truly anything and everything, but long beautiful hair and short, sassy pixies are the top two. Some people believe that at a certain age a woman should […]

Dirty Little Secrets

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Dirty little secrets from your sassy hairdresser!  I recently read an article talking about the “dirty hair club” and it got me thinking about a lot of stuff.  As a hairdresser for over 30 years, I know a little bit about dirty hair.  For example, most people do not need to shampoo their hair everyday.  […]

Autumn Colors

Monday, October 27th, 2014

I am loving this autumn and all the spicy colors.  The leaves, the flowers and for me the fashion.  Autumn always brings fresh new ideas.  This fall hair color is lively with warm auburn tones or spicy red tones playing in the hair.   Rich chocolate with a hint of wine for the brunettes.  Blondes are […]

Fall Hair & Fashion

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

I recently read an article about all the perfect models and the perfect celebrities that so many people try their hardest to look like. I am sure you all know that in their photos, every little imperfection has been smoothed out of the picture. What is left, is simply perfection. I don’t know about you, […]

Peaches & Cream

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

As I sit outside on this unusually cool August morning, I’m still in disbelief that fall is right around the corner. I’m trying so hard not to rush the end of summer, but as soon as I feel the first morning with a cool breeze I get excited for the change in season. No matter […]
