A clean edged bob is a great way to get rid of summers dried balyaged edges that are straggly and ragged.
I think by now we’ve all got the wavy look bob down, So, how do you get a smooth glass finish? It’s all in the styling. To get that sleek look start with your styling products. Add a leave in conditioning primer, like Framesi Primer 11 or B&B Daytime Protective Repair Fluid. For Blondes we love Framesi Color Lover Dynamic Blonde Serum. Next use a blow dry styling cream like Framesi BY WIO Strait Balm or B&B All Style Blowdry. We like to pair it with an oil, like B&B Hairdressers Invisible Oil or Framesi Stop Frizz.
Next, it’s all in the BRUSH! Use a large paddle brush and blow dry from nape to front up and over your head. This will dry it straight and smooth.
There are a lot of reason why hair thins out. STRESS, hormones, diet, illness, pollution, poor grooming habits, improper shampooing and brushing to name a few. But what are the solutions? Here is a list of simple solutions that can help.
First, Identify the Cause
Is it improper shampoo or using the wrong products? Ask your stylist which products work best with your scalp and hair. A lot of shampoos are free of sulfates,but sulfates used properly can really cleanse your scalp, some sulfate-free shampoos may not be getting your scalp as clean as you need it. Especially if you are using a lot of styling products. Dry shampoos give you an extra few days of styling and give your hair a boost at the roots,but they can clog follicles and dull hair and need to be thoroughly removed.
Are you losing an abnormal amount of hair? You normally loose 100 hairs a day. But if you notice excessive shedding call your doctor. You may have an underlying health problem If your hair is falling out more than normal. Remenber some seasons you will shed hair more than normal,so do not be alarmed if your hair falls out more during certain times of the year for a few months. Hair shedding is actually a normal part of the hair growth cycle. It’s the phase where hair comes out so a new one can come through.
Clogged follicles can result in thinning hair. If you are cleansing properly but still experience thinning hair, your follicles could be clogged from hormones, dry scalp or oily scalp. Get the follicles unclogged. My favorite shampoo for unclogging follicles is Framesi Morphosis Densifying shampoo. Its natural ingredients, blueberry extract, Vitamin H(Biotin) olive and palm oils, and apple stem cells not only unclog follicles but help with hair growth.
So many great products to help with hair solutions
Bumble and Bumble Scalp detox is also good, with micellar water and a fizzing foam, it feels like pop rocks on your scalp for a squeaky clean scalp.
Next VITAMINS and healthy diet. I love Framesi Densifying Extreme drops, they go right on your scalp, where you need it! Blueberry, propolis and royal jelly along with Biotin, for hair bulb metabolism.
There are a lot of home remedies too, like honey, coconut and olive oils and even mashed avocado. My personal favorite is castor oil. It works on a lot of scalp issues.
These are pretty messy and time consuming, I prefer the easy way out. Especially when there are so many good products with natural ingredients. But if you have time and feel like cooking up a home remedy, then do it!
I also find that home remedies can be expensive. Mashing organic avocados and coconut oil is not cheap, especially if you need to do it 3 times a week and you know you can’t save an avocado once mashed.
Which ever route you take, remember consistency is key, one time use does not net results, and no results are instant.

Working on a TV show means long hours (min 12 hours, sometimes all day, sometimes all night) being in all sorts of weather conditions, and if filming in the woods, like on the set of the WGN's new series The Outsiders, it also means bugs, ticks and snakes! OH MY! it also means helping to create memorable characters. It's definitely a team effort. We were lead by our amazing Key Hairstylist, Karen Lovell.
She allowed me to create the earthy rustic red hair colour for star, Gillian Alexy's character G'Winn, and I did a Japanese Straightener on Ryan Hurst so Karen could create the backwoods Man Bun for Ryan's Character Lil Foster. In addition to working with these two stars, I worked on a multitude of background characters to help create the gritty, real feel of living in the woods, off the grid style that was a cross between, biker chic , mad max and hippy commune style looks.
