Story
Tagline
Also Known as Hairstyle Blog
Introduction
A native of St. Paul, a hair stylist for over 30 years and now spends her time helping women end their hairstyle struggles with her two successful blogs. Hairstyle Blog and Visual Makeover.

I started Hairstyle Blog blog in 05′ as a place to air what’s going on in the world of hair and as a place to extend my thoughts about questions clients and students had about their hair issues. Hairstyle-blog now has about 1,300 articles addressing reader’s questions and a range of topics that affect them from A to Z.  We dig deep to bring you honest, unique, authoritative content that’s both helpful and fun, with plenty of relevant links to helpful resources.  We also bring in leading professionals and beauty experts to share their knowledge on topics that help women be their best.

At the time I started this blog, hairdressers in general, were not into this techy stuff like blogging or websites. Now, of course, you can find possibly more than you ever wanted to know about tips and tricks of the trade!  So why do I still do it?  I love the hair business! What I enjoy sharing mostly with my readers, is answers to questions I know can affect their lives.

Salon Hosts Charity Fundraiser

East 42nd Street Salon is having a fundraiser for Keep a Child Alive with Lorraine Massey on September 21 11:00-6:00.  Here is a little more info about the charity: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/profiles/how-we-met-alicia-keys-amp-leigh-blake-2301086.html

Lorraine Massey is quite a celebrity in her own right in the curly community, and it is our pleasure to have her come to our salon to cut hair along side me, and our stylist, to raise money for the Keep a Child Alive.  100% of the money earned from the haircuts will go back to the charity.  The cutting part is by appointment only, because of how many people will want a cut by Lorraine.

We will also have a band, a food truck and some other vendors to make this a fun filled day for the whole family.

Soap and alkaline salts in water can mix to form a deposit that clings to hair. Apple cider vinegar hair rinse will remove deposits making the hair softer and shinier.

I see my clients clinging to a hairstyle way too long. If you used to get compliments but don't now, it is a sure sign that you need to change hairstyles.
