Want your hair to stay all night at the next wedding/event you attend? We have some Savvy Tips for you:
- up styles, whether it’s braiding, twisting, or knotting, should guarantee your style to last even through your best moves on the dance floor
- styles hold best on day-old hair so keep in mind, it’s best to wash your hair the day before you get all dolled up to witness those “I Do’s”
Wedding season is upon us and we at Studio Savvy know how crazy the wedding whirlwinds can get but we are here to help! The best way to make things go smoothly on the Big Day is to book ahead. Trials are SO important to reassure the bride, and everyone in her life, that the hair and makeup are exactly as she wants so she can feel like the most beautiful woman in the world when all eyes are on her. Make sure to book your favorite makeup artist and/or stylist(s) in advance! The Glam Squad at Studio Savvy has everything you could possibly need when it comes to feeling beautiful on your wedding day or at the next big event you attend; and we want to make sure that we can be prepared to make every woman feel beautiful on the Big Day!
Studio Savvy would also like to let you all know that we were voted FINE Magazine’s favorite North County San Diego Wedding Merchant in the beauty field. A huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you who took the time to vote for us and make that possible!

Savvy Tip: Adding a gloss over your color this summer can help to tone out and/or enhance colors in your hair; even better though, a gloss will add a lot of shine, as well as condition and protect the hair in the coming summer months!
As most of you know, Deena and Desiree merged the Studio Savvy tribe with the Framesi tribe by becoming certified educators; and with their return from certification, they brought home a bunch of Italian Style knowledge that we would like to share with you. We are totally in love with the Glamour line from Framesi and here’s why:
100% gray coverage with all shades
Ensures uniform result from roots to ends with no build up
Reduces damage and prevents color loss
Out performs all other competition in gray coverage, conditioning, shine, fadage and beautiful true to tone colors
Protects the integrity of the hair
Natural, vibrant results
Sure, it’s easy to see why anyone would want to use the Glamour color line when coloring hair, but the real reason why we love it so much:
Glamour allows us stylists to be artists.
Too often in this industry, stylists can find themselves stuck in a mundane routine, doing the same kind of hair color day in and day out. With Glamour, your Glam Squad gals are able to step out of that box and get creative with hair color. Because Glamour offers true to tone bases and a number of vibrant colors as well as pure pigment colors, we are able to use your hair as a canvas, and Glamour as our palette to create beautiful works of walking art!
Whether you’re looking to dabble in those fun, funky “party” colors that are so in style right now, or you just want a richer, more vibrant, shiny color, there is something for everyone in the Glamour line.
So ask your stylist about Glamour the next time you visit Studio Savvy, who knows, it may be the best decision you’ve ever made! Until next time fashionistas, check us out on our blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Looking forward to the warm, sunny weather that comes with summer, but dreading the dull, brittle, and even frizzy hair that comes along with it? Never fear, Studio Savvy is here! And we’ve got some weapons in our arsenal that can help combat any hair problems you may encounter this summer.
Most of you know about the Powerdose treatments we offer here, but some of you may not, so we’ll break it down for all of you. The Powerdose features core-to-surface technology to target all areas of the hair strand, delivering deep-conditioning and shine. Protein molecules dive inside the hair and fill “potholes” to strengthen, while ceramides close the cuticle on the outside to smooth. This treatment offers instant repair, reconstructing and rehydrating fragile, lifeless hair making the hair look and feel soft, shiny and healthy for UP TO 8 weeks (depending on the condition of the existing hair).
Olaplex is another service we offer here at Studio Savvy, it is the only product of its kind and the entire beauty industry has been buzzing about it for a while now. Contrary to popular belief, Olaplex is NOT a conditioning treatment–conditioners are cosmetic, but Olaplex works internally to cross link bonds that have been broken. Olaplex offers both in-salon and at-home treatment options. It allows us to rebuild the strength, structure, and integrity of the hair. Olaplex will relink bonds that are broken during chemical services and immediately strengthen the hair—but it’s not just for people who have chemical services done, it can be used on any client. Olaplex is a great way to sustain the structure of the hair, leaving the hair feeling soft, manageable, and reducing breakage. The best part about it? Even if you stop using Olaplex, the disulfide link is permanent—bonds that have been created won’t break and then cause the hair to break!
The biggest weapon we have in our armory is the Global Keratin Smoothing treatment for all you curly, wavy, frizzy haired clients out there. GK penetrates the cuticle of the hair to improve texture, enhance manageability and reduce frizz. This treatment does not straighten the hair, it will not remove all of the natural curl but it does smooth out wave and curl while eliminating frizz, repairing damage, and delivering shine. Global Keratin penetrates the hair shaft delivering important conditioning and moisturizing benefits which in turn, improves softness and reduces friction, enabling hair to better withstand heat, making the hair less prone to breakage. One of our favorite parts about this treatment is that it reduces drying time, making the hair more manageable for you to style at home—or not! It allows you to air dry your hair, which is a great option for all of our busy lifestyles, and it lasts anywhere from 3-5 months!
We hope this bit of information has made you even more hopeful and excited for the upcoming summer months, and washed any worries away concerning the abuse your hair might take. Make sure to ask your stylist about any one of these treatments and what the right option is to get you summer ready! And as always, you can keep up on all of the Glam Squad’s fashion adventures on our blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

The Del Mar Race Track was “Haute As Ever” at a social event in late August. The fashion-filled day was billed to be the world’s largest Instagram meet-up in that hundreds of Instragram users were in attendance. A highlight of the event was the haute 1940s fashion flashback and their connection to horse racing at Del Mar.
“Depicting what the Del Mar Race Track was like back in forties was great fun,” shared Deena Von Yokes of Studio Savvy Salon. Deena’s team of hair and make-up stylists, along with hats by Christine A. Moore Millinery made gorgeous reproductions of 1940s fashion on models and race track patrons alike. A variety of clothing styles, classic automobiles, lounge room sets and jazz from the era allowed attendees to truly have a way of transcending time for an afternoon.
