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.

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.

The summer heat is rolling in, and we at Studio Savvy know that everyone is looking for a quick fix to the never ending question: “What do I do with my hair?!” Never fear, the Glam Squad is here! And we’ve got some tips for you!

FullSizeRender FullSizeRender (3)

  • back comb the base of your hair (top Mohawk section to crown area) this section can be secured in a pony tail or a braid or just pinned and left down
  • braid the 2 front sections of your hair (areas on either side of your face, the hair from your hair line to right behind the ear) and secure each braid with an elastic
  • the remaining hair can be left down, or pulled back into a pony or a bun or a braid
  • the braids on either side of the hair can then be wrapped around the pony, bun or braid, pinned up to create a Mohawk effect, or simply left down.

These directions are meant to serve as more of a guideline for a fun summer style, but can definitely be modified or played with to create your own unique style.

IMG_9351

TIP: Black Ribbon Trend: make any pony, bun or braid more interesting by adding a black ribbon. The ribbon can be simply tied in a knot and the ribbon left hanging or tied into an elegant bow. The ribbon can be tied around an elastic or be used as an embellishment at the end of a pony or braid.

Studio Savvy also would like to remind everyone that it is time to start thinking about what hat you’re going to wear to Opening Day! Studio Savvy has the hats you need in ALL price ranges. Note: it will be first come, first serve with the hats we have in the salon so make sure to come out soon to ensure you get the hat you LOVE!

We also are looking forward to being featured in both Ranch and Coast and FINE Magazine in the month of July! Please make sure to check it out!!

As always fashionistas, if you have any questions on our fun summer hairstyles suggested above, please do not hesitate to ask your stylist the next time you are in. And stay savvy on our Studio Savvy adventures on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and our blog!

  • up styles, whether it’s braiding, twisting, or knotting, should guarantee your style to last even through your best moves on the dance floor
