On a more solemn note, we have recently learned that Karin’s cancer has relapsed and at this time she is out indefinitely. We sincerely appreciate any and all thoughts and prayers being sent her way. We would also like to assure all of her clients that we are here to take care of their hair care needs while she is out.

Finally, we have a little favor to ask of you. The Glam Squad would love it if you would take the time to visit FINE magazine’s website and nominate Studio Savvy Salon Services as one of your favorite San Diego Wedding Merchants. If you have any questions as to how to fill out the nomination, please do not hesitate to email us or ask one of the girls at the front desk.

FINE Magazine Editorial on London Photoshoot

London Calling photoshoot on the rooftop at famous designer and Dame Zandra Rhodes Textile Museum and flat in London.

As many of you know, Deena and Kassidy went to London for the Salon International Hair Show in October. But we are proud to announce that FINE Magazine featured a four page article on the adventure that Deena and her friend and fashion photographer, Meg, experienced in London. The editorial is written from the perspective of Meg Nobriga, describing she and Deena’s fashion adventures in London this past October. Meg and Deena not only got to stay at Zandra Rhodes’ flat in London, but more excitedly, they had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with Zandra’s clothing designs! Both artists were able to express their creativity and expertise in the industry, which is displayed in some beautiful photos shot by Meg. We at Studio Savvy Salon are SO proud of both Deena and Meg. We encourage you to please go out and pick up a copy of this month’s issue of FINE Magazine to check out the editorial on your own—or go online to see their amazing work for yourself! And if you’re looking for a new style, color correction, or color specialists, check out our award-winning Studio Savvy Salon, San Diego hair salon.
