Most of us need a little guidance when it comes to that perfect blow out, so here are our Savvy Tips & Tricks to blow drying:
First, start by power drying your roots, make sure to get them good and dry while getting some of the water out of the mid shaft and ends, but leaving them a little damp. From there, section off your hair into at least 3 sections, someone with thicker hair may need to section it into 4 or 5. Start blowdrying from the bottom and work your way up to the top. Savvy Trick: hitting the cool button on your blow dryer will help to set your style, as well as close the cuticle and add shine!
Here at Studio Savvy, knowledge and service are our priority. We have put so much time and effort into making sure that the entire Glam Squad is properly trained and knowledgeable, not only on product, but also on technique and how to take care of our clients. We spend our days off immersing ourselves in hair education so that we can better serve you, the client. We are so excited to continue our learning of the hair and fashion world, and we can’t wait to share it all with you!

Studio Savvy is GROWING, and staying on the cutting edge of the current fashion trends!
As many of you know, and for those of you who don’t, Deena is working hard behind the scenes to open her very own Advanced Academy for hair cutting, hair coloring, styling and more! We would like to share our little secret behind our work to make the academy a success, and we would like to call it “Pay It Forward”. Kristine Currier, who has coached many entrepreneurs, has been a mentor to Deena through her process of opening her new academy and has been key in helping her to find her inspiration for growing to the next level. This academy is yet another facet to the business that Deena has aspired to create. We believe here at Studio Savvy that when you teach, you learn, and knowledge is power! Deena plans to prepare all of her talented stylists here in the salon to teach along side her at the academy. This means that Studio Savvy will always have the highest trained professionals in the salon to take care of all of your hair care needs! If you are interested in working with Kristine Currier on starting, or enhancing any of your business ideas, please visit her site. And please stay tuned to keep updated on our progress on the Advanced Academy progress, coming soon!
Savvy Tip: Want that care-free, go-to summer beach wave without all the effort? Let your pillow do the work! Wash your hair at night, spray in some leave-in conditioner (Unite 7 Seconds is available for purchase at Studio Savvy), and let your pillow do the rest of the work while you sleep. Wake up with that tousled wave, and we suggest taking a curling iron or wand to random strands just to give it a more polished look.
As most of you know, the color product we cherish and use inside the Studio Savvy Salon is Framesi. What you probably don’t know is, this October, Framesi is celebrating their 75th birthday at Disneyland Paris, AND, Deena will be attending! Framesi is one of the top color products on the market, and the only color line Deena has used in her salon for over 35 years.
Not only does Deena have the privilege of attending Framesi’s 75th birthday celebration in Paris, she will also be attending Fashion Week, as well as visiting the Sassoon Academy in London! Her mission for this trip: to gather more beauty knowledge and bring it back to you fashionistas here, which coincides with our commitment to Fashion is our Passion!
Savvy Tip: Humidity making you all frazzled? It could be dryness, humidity, or damage. Keep hair hydrated and strong with a weekly conditioning treatment. Smoothing a dab of Argan oil, or Framesi’s Stop Frizz serum (both available for purchase here at Studio Savvy), throughout midshaft and ends to work wonders!
For your information, Please make note: Deena will be in Europe and out of the salon from October 1st-October 12th. She will also be out of the salon from August 19th-22nd for a wedding in New York.
Brooke will be leaving for the East Coast in September and will be out of the salon September 9th-13th.

TIP: The biggest question everyone asks themselves, do you get the dress or the hat first? Answer: It all depends on personal preference, but the trick is, bring either your hat or your dress, whichever you pick out first, with you when trying to pair the latter.
