How Does Team Studio Savvy Care About You?

SSGroup Here at Studio Savvy, our clients are our number one priority. We want to make sure that each and every one of you can get an appointment that works best for you and that every client leaves happy. On that note, Deena would like to let everyone know that although she sometimes is not available, she has a highly trained and competent group of girls who can take care of you when it works best for you.

Brooke, Victoria, and Mariah have trained under Deena for quite some time now. They are well educated on her techniques, formulas, and the ways in which she takes care of her clients. All three girls have attended many classes both inside the salon, and through outside educators on color, cutting, styling, etc. Deena is more than confident in her Three Amigas to take care of her clients that she is unable to take care of herself.

Deena also wants all of her clients to know that this is not, by any means, her way of “getting rid of” or “passing on” any of her clients. She wants you all to know that this is simply a way to accommodate everyone and make everyone happy. If, in the event that you are unable to get in with her for a tint touch-up, Brooke, Victoria, or Mariah can apply your color and then Deena can cut your hair. This is our best solution to scheduling everyone at their best convenience while still keeping Deena’s connection with each one of her clients. So please, the next time you call to schedule an appointment, if Deena is not available at the time you want, please keep Brooke, Victoria, or Mariah in mind to take care of your hair care needs!

We’ve Got A Secret

Beautiful finished results on the “Khloe Kardashian” model from Tracy Cunningham’s workshop.

Recently, Deena and Kassidy and Karin went to a workshop with Tracy Cunningham at her Beverly Hills salon. Tracy Cunningham is a celebrity colorist with a number of well-known clients and she was kind enough to share many of her formulas and techniques—including Khloe Kardashian’s formula! While we won’t go into all the little details of the current hair trend techniques, we would like to share with you what’s popular and trending now. One word we’re sure everyone is familiar with is balayage, however, most people don’t actually know what it means. The term balayage comes from the French word meaning “sweeping.” When it comes to the hair world, one of the main things that separates it from other techniques is that it allows the stylist to use free-hand painting—no foil is used. This allows for a natural, sun-kissed look because the hair is painted where it naturally falls or lays. Balayaging the hair results in a softer, less noticeable regrowth line, which means less maintenance is required. Similar to the balayaging technique, is a hair trend we at Studio Savvy like to call a color melt. Color melting blends the highlights with the base so that there is no harsh line. It keeps depth at the roots and the ends light. Dark hair next to light hair emphasizes brightness and lightness. When it comes to a color melt, multiple shades of color are used to create the “melted” effect; so it’s all about a soft graduation effect, regardless of the colors used. Color melt allows for a lot of dimension throughout the hair and movement in the color. The other key in a color melt is to use a gloss at the end to melt the colors together. One hugely popular technique that Tracy Cunningham touched on in her workshop is babylights. Babylights are delicate highlights that mimic those fresh, natural highlights given by the sun. The results are subtle and beautiful. Babylights are low maintenance because the grow out is softer and more subtle. They can be done on any hair type and color—in fact, most of the time we combine a variation of these techniques to get the beautiful results all you fabulous fashionistas desire. We at Studio Savvy would also like to remind all of you to please remember to wash and condition your hair every couple days in this dry weather. It is very important to remove buildup on the scalp and replenish your thirsty ends! We also want to encourage you all to ask your stylist about any of these trendy techniques during your next visit; and until then, friend us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram (@studiosavvysalon) and Twitter to stay up to date on all of our fabulous adventures!
