Gratitude and Thanksgiving

In 2015, certain loved-ones faced, endured and conquered serious health issues.  This itself was monumental and I am continually grateful for their outcomes.

I am thankful for the opportunity to live and work in THE most beautiful area in the world. I have a roof over my head, food on my table and clothes to wear.

My family and friends continuously offer me inspiration, support and unconditional love which never goes unappreciated.  I am fortunate to have a career that never feels like work, even though hairstylist  is a position that is of service to others.  Clients enter Studio LV, allow me their trust to help them with their hair needs.  They  leave with a new look, information and products to care for their style, and feeling fabulous.  The exchange of satisfaction  makes me the lucky one!   My clients are wonderful individuals who also contribute a vast array of enlightenments and fulfillments to my life.  They continually inspire, therefore pushing me to become the best hairstylist I can be.  In return, I take a variety of educational classes and earn new certifications so I can thankfully  provide the latest services, products and technology offered.

I am thankful for being a part of the Platino Salon & Suites Team  which allows many opportunities.  The  beautiful salon enables me to work amongst the highest-qualified and creative hairstylists in Newport Beach who influence and motivate me.  My talented assistant provides help and support not only to me but to everyone who sits in my chair throughout the day, always with a smile.

Most of all, I have health and happiness.  What more can a girl be thankful for?


In the Northern Hemisphere, June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year.   Since we tend to fill our long days with many activities and events,  your hair needs to have a  lasting and multi-functional hairstyle. Try a braid!  Braids are the hottest trends showing around town. Whether your hair is slicked back, worn down in loose waves or pulled high on the head, braids are easy to create yourself!  Look great at any celebration with the versatility of braids!

Attending a graduation?  Braids not only look great under a mortarboard, but hair that’s braided can hold its look when the cap and gown come off and you’re ready to start celebrating! Try a loose side-braid for its ease and resourceful look.

Getting married?  June Brides love braids!  Pin the braid into a beautiful bun and dress it with babies-breath or any other flowers of choice. When the festivities begin, remove your veil,  un-pin the braid and voila!  A different and more casual look that can endure the dance floor and still look fantastic.

Every braided hairstyle has one thing in common and that’s serious length. If you are growing out your bob or lob but your hair isn’t long enough to achieve stunning braids, why not try hair extensions?

Do you  wonder why Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé or Steven Tyler have long, thick and beautiful hair?  The answer is hair extensions.

Top-of-the-line hair extension companies such as Great Lengths or Hairdreams were a secret that only Hollywood “A-Listers” and their hairstylists were privy to. We can observe and learn from the celebrities’ new hairstyles and hair extension trends to get our very own look. Nowadays premium hair extensions are a mainstream and available to everyone.



Celebrities Get Hair Extensions for a Number of Reasons.

Actors who play different roles with different looks need to transform themselves quickly.  Typically, their hair can take a beating with all the chemicals used on it.  Bleaching, coloring and bleaching again make it impossible to keep their hair healthy and long.  Many just cut their hair short and have hair extensions installed to solve their problem.  They can quickly have long hair in a completely different color, have bangs without having to cut them into their hair or have a highlighted look without any chemicals.  The transformation is seamless. Also, celebrities are the first people we observe with a new style or trend.  Celebrities are in the “lime-light” and need to constantly look their best.  Hair extensions help to make that possible.


Flawless Hair Extensions with Great Lengths or Hairdreams.

Have you noticed someone’s extensions when a strong wind gusts through their hair?  Has someone in your pilates class hung their head upside down and the extensions are clearly visible?   Top quality hair extensions are natural and undetectable.   You can brush them from the root and braid them. Also, they can be tied in a ponytail un-noticeably.

Great Lengths and Hairdreams carry the highest quality hair that is available. They are either minimally-processed Indian hair or unprocessed European hair. They are composed of 100% human hair with bonds that are made of either keratin(Great Lengths) or crystal polymer(Hairdreams Hair Creations or Laserbeamer Nano) and the removal process is safe and easy.
