When the month of October is mentioned, the first thing that usually pops into one’s mind is Halloween!

Halloween, which is also known as All Hallows’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in many countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day.  It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs and all the faithful departed believers whose souls have yet to reach heaven.

Today our society celebrates Halloween entirely different.  When we think of Halloween, we conjure-up the idea of vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches and devils.  All can be pretty scary and, unfortunately, have something in common with the aforementioned.  SCARY HAIR!

Summertime can take a toll on our hair.  Sun, salt and chlorinated water, high-lift tints and bleach for that natural-blonde look can leave our hair looking dry, dull and lifeless.  That’s scary as well.  With the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays just around the corner,  it’s nice to enter into the festive season with great hair!

Cutting many inches off of your hair is a viable option.  Afraid to go shorter? Go for it!  A shorter look may be just what is needed for that fresh holiday hair.  Want healthy hair, but like your length? Be daring and cut off all the unhealthy ends to achieve frizz-free hair.  After all of the broken and damaged ends are cut, attach hair extensions.  Extensions are the fastest and easiest way to get your hair long again without waiting for it to grow back.

Hairdreams Hair Creations hair extensions manufactures top-quality hair with bonds made of crystal polymer.  This means after months of wear, your extensions will look beautiful and shiny without any damage.  In fact, after removal your own hair will not only be in an excellent condition (the extension actually wraps around your hair and protects it), but longer as well.  With the Laserbeamer Nano technique by Hairdreams, you can have your new look in a couple of hours from start to finish. There’s nothing frightening about that!

Why go through the holidays with scary hair?  Buy professional-quality, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, lop-off those 2-3 inches damaged ends and try premium quality hair extensions by Hairdreams and Lori Veltri.  BOO!


Living Proof Hair Products for Protection

It’ s July– the middle of summer and your hair is probably suffering. These hot and humid months can wreak havoc on your hair. Finding the proper products to replenish moisture, repel humidity or maximize volume has always been a feat. Until now! Living Proof hair products hit the hair-scene in 2008 and has been winning best-product awards ever since.

Living Proof’s ambition is to challenge conventional wisdom to solve your toughest beauty problems. Living Proof has invented and patented two new molecules, OFPMA and PBAE, that have never been used in beauty before.

OFPMA is a superior way to care for and style hair; better than any of the conventional technologies that exist in the market, like silicone and oils.

This brilliantly bulletproof molecule creates an exquisitely thin, invisible shield around every hair strand.

With this shield:

  • hair becomes healthier over time
  • hair is strengthened and protected from daily assaults like brushing and washing
  • hair balances the flow of moisture in and out of strands, so damaging moisture flux is controlled
  • hair fights off humidity, so frizz is stopped in its tracks
  • hair repels oil and dirt so it stays cleaner, longer
  • hair texture is polished into a smooth, glossy lustre

OFPMA is in almost all Living Proof products because every head of hair deserves the best. Without compromise.

PBAE is a tiny molecule that does big things. Literally. PBAE creates a micropattern of thickening dots on every hair strand, making hair look and behave like textured, full, thick hair. To understand the power of the PBAE technology, it’s helpful to first understand the root cause of flat hair. It only takes two words: No Friction. Flat hair simply has no friction. The hair strands are so fine and smooth that they lie flat on top of each other.

The way conventional texturizers and volumizers work is by trying to create friction…but in two very ineffective ways. They either use damaging chemicals that lift the hair’s cuticle so the strands don’t lie flat against each other or add glue-like resins that build up on hair, making it feel stiff and unnatural and fall flat fast.

PBAE’s microscopic pattern of thickening dots sit on the surface of the hair, creating the much needed friction and space between every fine hair strand without any of the damage or baggage of conventional technologies. These thickening dots have endurance and don’t break down, even as you run your fingers through your locks, making fullness completely revivable and renewable.

With PBAE:

  • Hair behaves like full, thick hair with body and volume
  • Hair has volume and texture that is revivable and long lasting

Many of Living Proof’s texturizing and volumizing stylers are powered by PBAE to provide texture, body and thickness like you’ve never seen before…without tradeoffs. Your choice of 4 different product lines means that Living Proof can be used on every type of hair. Opt for No-Frizz, Restore, Full or PHD(Perfect Hair Day) shampoos, conditioners or styling aids.

Living Proof is the perfect solution when concerned about caring for hair extensions. This is because these products do not contain sulfates, which strip your hair of natural essential oils and chemically-colored hair, and has a strong potential to be an irritant for the skin and eyes.

Therefore, Living Proof leaves those delicate extension bonds completely in tact which allows the extension to stay in the hair longer.

Don’t worry about your summer hair issues any longer! Get Living Proof where beauty meets brilliant science!

We all have a calling in our career. Some of us know right away and some follow intuition and life experiences.

My career calling was of a unique nature and not something I had anticipated exactly. Friends and clients frequently ask me how I got into this hair and beauty industry. So, I thought about it and traced back to the delicate moments that have lead me to this point in hairstyling and hair extensions!

I started this adventure in my youth.  My mother used to cut my bangs so short and then tape them to my forehead to dry.  If she didn’t perform this ritual, my baby-fine hair would stick out straight!  After many years(and many tears)of dreading those moments, I decided to execute this procedure myself utilizing the famed orange-handled sewing shears and pruning my shoulder-length tresses to a fashionable chin-length style.

The results were a hit as I continued on my hair-lopping spree throughout the dormitories where I was attending college.  Any head of hair would suffice as long as I could snip away and create a new look for those willing to trust my ability or lack thereof.

I’ve always had a passion for anything aesthetically pleasing and relating to individuals whose hair has been sorrowfully called  “frog fur”.  My motivations went beyond the aesthetics.  I not only wanted to be creative, I wanted to make people happy when they looked into a mirror.

Combining all of these pieces to the puzzle has allowed me the opportunity to morph this enthusiasm into a 30-year successful career as a Hairstylist.  Haircutting, highlighting, corrective-coloring were specialities  until I realized that I could not only remove the hair but add the hair as well.  This concept lent itself to the new hair treatment of Hair Extensions in my world.

Employing many types of Hair Extension applications has permitted me the knowledge and experience to decipher the best of the best.  Great Lengths Hair Extensions and Hairdreams Hair Creations fulfill that role.  It is made of 100% Indian or European Remy hair which is soft and shiny.  The bonds enable the brush to glide through the extensions from roots to ends without catching and braiding–it has never looked so natural!  Curled or straightened,  the extensions offer movement throughout the hairstyle.

Whether you are looking for length, volume, or chemical-free highlights or all of the above, Hair Extensions are a safe and speedy way to achieve your dream hair.

Please take a look at some of my “Before” and “After” client photos.

Let me help you love your hair again!
