The January Itch

January 22nd, 2015 by admin

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!

January 20th, 2015 by admin

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.

January 4th, 2015 by admin

Looking back at this past year opens my mind to all the new possibilities of 2015.  Fashion comes and goes.  Some years are better than others, but I loved this last year’s fashion in clothing, makeup and hair. The straightening treatments opened up all kinds up looks for us.  And that was fun for a […]

Baby, it’s cold outside … and what better way to stay warm than an ugly Christmas sweater? When I was about five, my mom and I had matching Christmas sweaters.

Ombre-Still on Top!

November 25th, 2014 by admin

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

November 13th, 2014 by admin

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 […]

Tough Touch

November 7th, 2014 by admin

The end of summer and beginning of fall were all about loose and flowy clothes paired with natural looking hair. As cooler weather is coming and it’s getting time to bundle up, warmer materials, like leather, are being added to feminine texture and lace. From business to casual, I’m seeing lots of menswear inspired outfits […]
