Hair Sculpting, The Perfect Haircut

 

When sculpting a haircut, my eyes follow the shape of the skull, highlighting and contrasting all angles, so no matter how you flip it, it flows.

The best feeling is to watch hair come alive.

Alan Palomo of Neon Indian x Issue Magazine

“I REALIZED AT SOME POINT I DIDN’T WANT TO WRITE ANY MORE SAD BOY LOVE SONGS, RECANTING ROMANTIC EXPLOITS AND TREATING MY ART LIKE A SORT OF EMOTIONAL “PURGING.” ONE OF THE BIGGER TAKEAWAYS FROM MY 20S IS THAT YOU CAN’T WRITE A SONG TO MAKE SOMEONE FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU.”

Weekly Mantra: Set Intentions and Break Habits

Live less out of habit and more out of intent. – Unknown

I often lose myself in the wilderness of my intentions. I try to refocus on things that matter and reset myself towards becoming better and following “the love.” For me, better means not indulging in bad habits or doing things that will set me up for disappointment.

Always shift and move forward.

Hair Buzz: Say Yes To New Adventures

Say yes, to new adventures, explore and find you. Do that something, you’ve always wanted to do. We are told to never judge a book by its cover, but I think it’s perfectly acceptable to judge a person by their hair. What new hair adventure do you want to take? What do you want it to say for you?

 

 

Tipsy Tuesday: To Do or Not to Do, Eyebrows

HairHiccups

 

To do or not to do, eyebrows! Common misconception: Brows should always match your hair.

Sorry to disappoint, but this is not true and it’s an old-school way of thinking. Eyebrows can be anywhere between two or three shades lighter or darker than your hair color. It really depends on the look you’re trying to achieve. Rule of Thumb: The darker the brows, the edgier and bolder the look.
