BOOK NOW!  The holiday season is officially here, and so are all of those fun-filled holiday parties and family gatherings. Here at Studio Savvy, we only have a few available spots left for appointments, and we want to make sure everyone is looking their best this season!

For the last five years, Deena has worked very hard to train the Studio Savvy staff, making sure that every one of our girls is highly skilled and highly trained for your hair care needs. So even if you are unable to get in with Deena or your regular stylist, Deena has the upmost confidence that her Dream Team can, and will, take care of you during any service for your holiday needs! We pride ourselves on our ability to work so well as a team, and we want to show you all how much we appreciate each and every one of our clients, so let our tribe take care of you this holiday season!

Need some holiday hair inspiration? We’ve got you covered! Whether you’re looking to change up your color or just switch up your every day look, we’ve got some insider knowledge for you!

One of our favorite current color trends is something experts are name the Tiger Eye. This brunette shade is created with a combination of hand-painted honey hues and soft brown highlights.
Tip: the Tiger Eye is great for someone who is not big on color maintenance because there are no harsh roots during the grow out process. Also note, this technique is not limited to just brunettes, it can be tweaked for blondes, red heads, etc.

Looking to update your every day hair style? We have some ideas for you!

LOB
As many of you know, the Lob (short for long bob, for those of you that don’t know) has been all the rage lately, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. So if you are one of those brave ladies that traded in your long locks for a sassy shorter cut, but are feeling a bit “blah” in your every day hair routine, try this: Switch your part to a far side part! This simple trick can really switch up your look, and even make your cut look slightly asymmetrical and more layered.
Tip: To train your hair to stay in its new place, use a dime sized amount of finishing cream to keep unruly strands tame. We suggest U-Oil or Second Day from Unite, or Stop Frizz from Framesi, all available to purchase here at Studio Savvy.

STRAIGHT HAIR
If you have straight hair, or are a flat iron addict and want a change, try adding a little texture to your mane with this little trick: do a few loose braids, run a flat iron over them and then pull them apart, creating some beachy-wave texture.
Tip: After pulling the braids apart, spritz a little texturizing spray throughout your hair to help hold your style, as well as give your hair a more finished, pieced out look. We suggest Unite’s Beach Day or Salty Dog from Evo, both available for purchase at Studio Savvy.

CURLY HAIR
Sometimes curly hair can have a tendency to give us volume horizontally, rather than the desired vertical height and volume we all strive for so try this: let your hair dry in an opposite part from how you usually wear it. Once dry, flip your hair back over to your normal part, which will give you more height, and less “triangle.”
Tip: if your hair is not perfectly curly or a little too frizzed-out once dry, touch it up with a curling iron or wand to give it a more uniformed curl and a more polished look!

Now that we’ve updated you on some of the current trends and how to switch up your every day look, we’d like to catch you up on what we’ve been up to! November 11th was not only Veterans’ Day, but also Opening Day for the Bing Crosby season at the Del Mar Racetracks, and our Studio Savvy Dream Team thanked our beloved Veterans in style! Deena and the Dream Team brought patriotic to a new level with an abundance of red, white, and blue, camo, pin up, and a whole lot of victory rolls for the Stars and Stripes fashion contest! We would like to give a HUGE shoutout to all of our beautiful models, talented fashion designers, and Amy Davis, who all helped make this amazing day possible! We would also like to thank Siobhan Gazur, the featured fashion photographer for this season’s Opening Day, for capturing so many amazingly beautiful shots–check out her work!
