Savvy Goes London and Paris

Framesi Congress 2016As 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.

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!

Haute Color Coming Your Way!

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:deena_desiree

 

  • 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-image-2

  • 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!framlogo

 

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!

Savvy Summer Hair

SummerhairLooking 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!

Color melt on actual client.

Color melt on actual client.

Your Studio Savvy Tribe wants to keep you informed on why we are the best—besides the obvious reasons! 🙂 As many of you know, and for those of you who don’t, Deena has used the Framesi professional haircolor line for over 35 years, and she has introduced all of the stylists to the amazing world of Italian hair color as well. The Framesi founder believes that the hairdresser plays one of the most important roles in society because, when people feel beautiful, they present themselves with more confidence and are then more successful in their everyday endeavors. “Better Beauty = Confidence and Success.” Framesi offers a wide variety of the highest-quality permanent and demi-permanent haircolors on the market.

Every one of Framesi’s haircolor lines features a rich vegetable coconut oil cream base. A study by the Journal of Cosmetic Science proved (what Framesi has known for decades) that vegetable coconut oil protects the hair better than any other oil during chemical services. Coconut oil leaves the hair in superior condition, provides more resilience and shine, and protects the hair fiber resulting in less damage and minimal fadage. Framesi developers are the most conditioning developers ever created and every one of the developers features coconut and castor oils for maximum protection of the hair and scalp as well.

The original haircolor line from Framesi is called Framcolor Futura. This line, like all of the lines, features the vegetable coconut oil cream base but also has only 2% ammonia. The low 2% ammonia results in less fading and less damage, leaving the hair in superior condition. Futura covers the most resistant gray with incredible shine and cooler tonality.

The next line to emerge from the Framesi creators was Framcolor 2001. Fram 2001 features the same benefits of vegetable coconut oil cream base and low 2% ammonia like Futura, but it is continuously being updated to provide the latest, most up to date technology and color trends. Framcolor 2001 is the most technologically advanced color line in the world, and we have it! The 2001 series allows for more perfect, natural results and permits some of your more natural highlights to shine through.

Glamour is the newest permanent color line to emerge from Framesi. This line promises not only 100% gray coverage, but also ensures a uniform result from root to end without the risk of any color build up (which leaves the hair looking muddy and lifeless). Glamour protects the integrity of your hair as well, and with 49 different shades, including all of those vivid pure pigment “party colors”, it can tackle anyone’s hair care desires.

Eclectic is the demi-permanent color line from Framesi that sets the standard for all demis on the market. It is a 100% ammonia free, deposit-only, cream color. The vegetable coconut cream base along with conditioning silicone and castor oil, delivers superior condition and shine. Eclectic is great for people who: are sensitive to ammonia, have just begun getting gray or have little gray to cover, change their color often or do not want to make that commitment to permanent haircolor, and/or want fabulous shine. This demi-permanent haircolor also protects the hair up to 400 degrees of heat so it’s great for those of you who style your hair often!

Don’t worry blondies, we haven’t forgotten about you wonderful people who have given us our nickname as “The Blonde Salon.” One of the reasons we are able to create such beautiful, blonde heads of hair is because of the amazing bleach, DeColor B that Framesi provides us. DeColor B is one of the safest bleaches on the market. It conditions and protects the hair from damage, decolorizes evenly and the bluing agents refine unwanted warmth that is inevitable when lifting the hair.

As you can see, the Glam Squad at Studio Savvy is head over heels for every one of Framesi’s superior color lines and we want to get you excited about it too. We want to make sure that every guest who visits our salon receives the best treatment possible and for us, that all starts with the best color line out there!

Studio Savvy would also like to congratulate Deena and Desiree, once again, on their achievements of becoming pre-certified Framesi educators. This means that they are experts on all Framesi products. We are so proud! Studio Savvy is forever committed to continuing our stylists’ education in all aspects of the hair world so we are happy to say that each one of your stylists here will be given the opportunity to get certified as a Framesi educator in the near future as well.

That’s all of the schooling we have for now, we hope you enjoyed being hit with a little bit of hair color knowledge. One fashion tip before we say goodbye: Babylights and color melts are still on trend this season, so if you’re looking to shake it up a little bit with a new, fun, playful look, ask your Savvy stylist if any of these could be right for you. Until next time fashionistas, check us out on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay up to date on all our Savvy Fashion adventures!Framesi_logo

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!

Studio Savvy on Channel 8 News with Ashley Jacobs

Valentine's Day hair and makeup.Happy Valentine’s Day from your girls at Studio Savvy! We are happy to share that Deena is back at it again! Even with her busy schedule, she has found time to help host a couple news segments with Ashley Jacobs on Channel 8 News. The segments will air on Monday, February 8th at 5:40am and 6:40am and will be covering secrets on how to keep your hair sleek and flawless during the upcoming rainy season. Kassidy will be alongside her to assist and talk about the different treatment options we provide to keep your hair shiny and smooth even when it’s damp out. They will also be giving a tutorial on how to help any man go from drab to fab and make sure he can not only keep up with his fabulous Valentine’s Day date, but, even better, compliment her beauty. We at Studio Savvy just want you to take a second and make sure you and your hair are ready for this holiday of romance—and don’t forget that we are here, and more than happy, to help you with any of your hair care needs to get you ready for your big date!

PMDeenaKylaPMGroup2 PMAllModels

Studio Savvy is ecstatic to share with all of you how wonderful our experience at Paul Mitchell the School San Diego was. And as promised, we have many pictures to share from our event. As guest artists, we were able to share our knowledge and our skills with these new and curious members of our hair world. Deena did a phenomenal job, not only at demonstrating and explaining a beautiful haircut on one of our own, Kyla, but also at leading the discussion in such a graceful yet very fun, inspirational manner. Kassidy was great in explaining her color application as well as touching on certain tips and tricks she recommends to any colorist in the business. Victoria and Brooke did an awesome job not only on the physical presentation of their up styles, but also in explaining their techniques in how to achieve a similar look, as well as interacting with the students and Deena and Kassidy to keep the presentation entertaining and educational. We are all so proud of each other and the hard work we have put into making this a great experience for the future professionals at Paul Mitchell, and for ourselves. Please, stay tuned for our next Glam Squad adventure!
