After 38 years as an educator, I was ready for a change. Retirement provided the opportunity to continue learning and growing. I spent a year providing childcare for my only grandchild, and though it has been my favorite job of all times, this experience ended when my daughter and her family relocated. I began to think of all the jobs I could do, inside and outside of education.

For a couple of weeks, I served as a substitute assistant principal in an elementary school, which was challenging and wonderful.  Next, I worked for 5 weeks as an assistant principal in a junior high school. I really enjoyed interactions with student, teachers and parents, but I really didn’t want to re-enter the world of school administration with its long hours and never-ending responsibilities.

As luck would have it, a family friend, who was expanding his business, offered me an amazing opportunity to reinvent myself as the brand manager at one of the top salons in Dallas, Texas. What a leap of faith on the part of this brave salon owner! I knew very little about hair, other than my own, so I had to learn all about it, as well as salon systems, services, and products.

Myself and Lily, another one of our salon coordinators.

 On the plus side, I know and understand customer service, I enjoy getting to know people, and I have a strong work ethic. In my prior career, I served as a leadership coach for principals, deans, and assistant principals. That experience has been invaluable in working with the front desk team, the stylists, and the salon owner.

Soon, I was booking appointments for our clients, talking with them on the phone and in person, opening the salon in the mornings, increasing my knowledge and use of technology, and thoroughly enjoying this exciting world.

I learn new things every day, and I am never bored! Salon staff and stylists have welcomed me and have been compassionate, patient teachers. I love the culture of this salon and the people I get to interact with every day! Where else can I participate in celebrations such as “National Wear your Pajamas to Work Day?!”

Who says retirement is the end of the road? For me, it has been the beginning of an exciting, new highway! Next time you are in the salon, or if you give us a call feel free to say hello!

 

Hey guys! Thinking about Fall Hair Trends?  I wanted to share some of my favorite haircuts, colors, and styles I hope to see trending. 

Oh, and by the way, this is my first blog so let me know what you think!

First Up: Blunt Bobs

Blunt Bobs make your hair look healthier, stronger, and thicker! This cut gives your style a ton of texture and can look good on pretty much anyone. Here are a few other blunt bobs I am loving right now.

I love it straight, or wavy! There are so many style options with this cut, which is why I can see people wanting this hair style.


Fall Favorite: Fringe or Bangs

Bangs are always a fall trend, now that it is finally starting to cool down this is the perfect time to wear your hair down and get bangs!

 

With fringe or bangs, you can make a major style change, or an accent to your haircut. They can frame your face very well and compliment many different hair styles and face shapes.


Pops of Color

I am absolutely in love with the whole unicorn look that has been trending lately. If you want to come out of your comfort zone and show your personality through your hair, this is the perfect trend to follow.


Long Layers | Always on Trend

Long layers are always a go to haircut, in my opinion they look good on anyone with longer hair. They add character and movement to your style while it also livens up the haircut as well.

Layers frame the face and look so lovely after styling. Or they can help take some weight if your hair is naturally thick. Either way, layers can be as dramatic or subtle as you want which is why I love some of these looks from instagram.


Perfectly Straight

Beachy curls have been the trend for the last couple of years, but sometimes its just nice to have a straight hair day.

Pull out the oils and really take time to nourish and moisturize your hair before you put the straight iron to it. I always recommend using quality hair products to keep your hair from looking dry and damaged.

Dallas Blonde Hair Salon

Working behind the chair as a stylist, I’ve learned many people do not know how to care for their blonde hair. In this blog I’m going to go over all the details on how to take care of your locks so that you have long lasting, beautiful blonde hair.

 

Also let me know if you have any other ideas, I’d love to see them! If you are looking for a blonde specialist in Dallas, I would love opportunity to make your hair dreams come true!

Haircare & Products

 

Let’s be honest, lightening your hair means you need to take care of it. Here are my go to product recommendations to keep your color looking better, but also maintaining the best health of your hair.

Purple Shampoo & Conditioner

Every blonde needs purple shampoo/conditioner. Using the right purple shampoo will keep your blonde vibrant and from turning yellow. However, overdoing it can either dull your blonde or turn it purple.

 

A good rule to follow would be to use it every other time you shampoo. My go to purple shampoo and conditioner is the Artego Shiny Silver shampoo and Blueberry mask. It refreshes blonde hair to the perfect color! Don’t worry, it’s not too purple or ashy!

Color Safe & Moisturizing Shampoo

A lot of shampoos still have sulfates and other things that can strip your color and keep it from lasting as long. It’s so so important to invest in your hair and use quality products for your own specific needs. Some blondes need moisture, some need repair to help strengthen your hair.

 

My best advice is to ask your stylist to recommend a sulfate free shampoo that suits your personal haircare needs. One of my favorites for blondes is the Alterna Caviar Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s great!

The Perfect Brush: Framar Detangling Brush

It’s so important to use a soft bristle brush no matter the color of your hair. However, the Framar Detangling brush has flexible bristles that don’t tug on your hair which in turn prevents breakage. I personally don’t use any other brush!

 

Stylist tip: is to apply a deep conditioning treatment and brush it through using your wet brush. Makes for soft, tangle free hair.

Pool Time

Pools typically have harsh chemicals that can dry your hair out and turn it green. To prevent both of those happening, apply a leave in conditioner on dry hair to protect it or simply secure your hair in a loose braid or top knot. My go to product cocktail for the pool is the Alterna Caviar Bond Repair leave in conditioner paired with the Anti Frizz Nourishing oil.

Styling Without Damage

When styling it’s so important to use a heat protectant and low heat. Remember: you’re blonde now, so you have to take care of your hair.

A good temperature to use your hot tools, like your flat iron or curling iron/wand, is 300-350 degrees. Any higher and you’re basically cooking your hair.

 

Another tip is to find a heat protectant that covers more than the temperature of heat you will be using. A really great one with everything I mentioned is the Alterna Caviar Bond Repair heat protectant.

 

Think of it like this: you wouldn’t grab a hot pan out of the stove without a glove. A heat protectant is a layer of protection on your strands when you use a hot blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron or wand.

Consistency is key!

It’s so important to be consistent with a stylist to work towards a hair goal. Good hair doesn’t happen in one appointment, it takes time and a plan.

 

Trying to achieve a major transformation in one appointment is unrealistic, and it really can damage your hair. Staying consistent with one stylist will help you reach your hair goals.

Have Realistic Expectations

Let‘s talk about changing your hair and the expectations to have when doing so:

 

You can most definitely make changes, however going from blonde to brown and back to blonde every other appointment is damaging to your hair.

 

Think of it like this: you only have one head of hair, and going back and forth between colors affects the integrity of your hair. When it comes to expectations of being blonde you have to be okay with the phases of doing so.

 

Big hair changes happen over time and multiple appointments. There will definitely experience warm phases from dark brunette to a pale light blonde. Patience, sticking to a stylist, and trusting the process is the key!

As a Dallas blonde specialist at Bigger Better Hair, I take our blonde hair color services seriously because, after all, this is Dallas! We offer several blonde hair color services to cater to current trends, so I hope this breakdown helps explain the difference between them. After reading this, I hope you will be able to confidently pick which of our Dallas Blonde services will get to you to the look you are wanting!

Service: Balayage (Partial)

Client Back Story: This client transitioned from foil highlights and came in requesting the Balyage look. So we kept the blonde that was already on her ends, and just did a Balayage (Partial) service to bring up some soft blonde around her face and around her crown.

Service Breakdown: A balayage (partial) service includes highlighting part of the head, usually from ear to ear, and front of your hairline to your crown. This is the perfect service to brighten up your hair around your face and to break up your new growth to brighten it up softly.

This service is good for maintaining existing balayage or transforming from a traditional highlight.

Timing for this depends on how much hair you have but ranges anywhere from 1hr30-2hrs.

Pro Tip: Most of the time, we also need to schedule an +add on color gloss service after the balayage appointment to tone and balance the blonde afterwards, unless your natural hair is fairly light to begin with.

 

Service: Balayage (Full)

Client Back Story: This client went quite a while after her last highlight while she was deciding her next hair move.

She wanted to transition into a more lived in look, so we decided on a Balayage (Full) Service.

This brighened up around her face and connected her new growth to the old blonde around her crown. Then we brightened up some of her ends to create more brightness throughout her mid lengths to ends.

We finished the look with an +add on gloss service to perfectly balance and tone her hair to a cool shade.

Service Breakdown: A balayage (full) has no limitations, since we are working with the entire head you can achieve a complete transformation with this service.

Most of our clients get this service every couple of months to brighten up their entire head so the back doesn’t get too dark. This service is also good for someone who has never had a balayage and is looking for a major change.

Timing for this depends on how much hair you have but ranges anywhere from 1hr30-3hrs.

Pro tip: Most of the time, we also need to schedule an +add on color gloss service after the balayage appointment to tone and balance the blonde afterwards, unless your natural hair is fairly light to begin with.

 

Service: Foil | Partial

Client Back Story: This client has a very light natural color, and she just wants to brighten her look while leaving her nape area her natural color

Because her natural hair is so light to begin, we don’t need to tone her hair after highlighting. Most clients, however, need a toner to even out their blonde after highlighting.

Foil |Partial: This service is good for maintaining your blonde and saying goodbye to those roots. Most of my clients get this service every 6-8  weeks. It takes anywhere from 1hr30-2hrs. If you are lucky enough to lighten perfectly like the client shown above, no toner is needed. However, most of us need a toner to help balance the tone and perfect the shade you are wanting.

Pro tip: Most of the time, we also need to schedule an +add on color gloss service after the highlights to tone and balance the blonde afterwards, unless your natural hair is fairly light to begin with.

 

Service: Foil | Full

Client Back Story:
This client has a very light natural color, and she just wants to brighten her overall look to a lighter blonde. Because this was a Full Foil, we placed foils on her entire head.

Because this client’s natural hair is so light to begin, we don’t need to tone her hair after highlighting. Most clients, however, need a toner to even out their blonde after highlighting.

Foil Full: A full highlight is good for brightening up the bottom of your hair every so often. This can also be good for those who are working their way towards being super blonde. It can take anywhere from 2-3hrs.

This service does not include a toner

Pro tip: Most of the time, we also need to schedule an +add on color gloss service after the highlights to tone and balance the blonde afterwards, unless your natural hair is fairly light to begin with.

 

Service: Blonding | Double Process (Partial)


Client Back Story: This client has a bit darker of a natural, so after doing a Foil Highlights | Partial, we toned and balanced her blonde.

Double Process Partial: A double process Partial is almost the same as a foil partial, except it includes a toner, root color, or gloss. This takes anywhere from 1hr30-2hrs and needs to be maintained every 6-8 weeks, even just for a toner refresh.

Service: Blonding | Double Process (Full)

Client Backstory:
This client has a bit darker of a natural, so after doing a Foil Highlights | Full, we toned and balanced her blonde.

Double Process Full: A double process full is a full highlight and includes a toner, root color, or gloss. This takes anywhere from 2-3hrs and can be done every so often to brighten everything up or go blonder.

Service: Blonding | Double Process Lift & Tone (Roots)

Client Back Story:
This client prefers a solid blonde look, so every 6-8 wees we do a Lift & Tone service where we lighten her entire new growth. We followed up with a gloss to balance her blonde, which is included with this service.

 

Double Process Lift and Tone Roots: A double process lift and tone is for those blondes who don’t like to see an ounce of roots. This look is a solid blonde and needs to be maintained every 3-5 weeks.

Service: Blonding | Double Process Lift & Tone (Full Strand)

Client Backstory: This client prefers a solid blonde look, so every 6-8 wees we do a Lift & Tone service where we lighten her entire new growth. We followed up with a gloss to add a shadow root and gloss to balance her blonde, which is included with this service.

Double Process Lift and Tone Full Strand: This service is very similar to a Double Process Lift and Tone Root, except it’s full strand. With this service, you can brighten up your already solid blonde color, or we sometimes offer this service if someone is looking for a major change of their overall color.
