Whether you’re getting ready for a big event or trip, a special day, or just wanting to treat yourself, you deserve to look amazing. No matter how gorgeous your hair and face look, a beautiful smile is what ultimately gives you confidence to own the moment!

One common theme I’ve heard from client feedback is that even though they loved their hair and make-up, it was tough for them to like any of the photos they were in because they just don’t feel good about their teeth. So, here’s my list of tips to have an amazing smile to go with your hair and make-up:


Take Regular Care of Your Pearly Whites

This is probably the easiest item on the list. Brushing and flossing on a regular basis is the best way to prevent cavities, stains, breaks and chips, and plenty of other dental issues. While you’re thinking about prepping your hair and skin, make sure to pay attention to your teeth too.


Get Professional Whitening

A lot of my clients struggle with feeling confident about their smiles because of the stains on their teeth. There are plenty of over-the-counter whitening kits out there, but truthfully, the best way to see a noticeable difference is to let a professional do it. If you’re getting ready for an event, you don’t want to have to add something else to your list of things to do over the next several months or weeks. Your local dentist in Torrance uses state-of-the-art whitening technology that can instantly transform your smile by making it several shades lighter.


Watch What You Eat and Drink

Like regular oral hygiene routines, limiting sugar and starch intake is another way to prevent tooth decay. Instead of another cup of smile-staining coffee, I recommend taking a few swigs of water to see if some hydration might put a little more pep in your step!


“Be-YOU-tiful”

The most important thing you can do to pamper yourself is to just be you! Having a fresh hair style, makeover, and smile can give you confidence that will allow you to truly soak in every moment instead of worrying about your appearance. It also saves you time so that you can focus on what’s important, like preparing for your trip or event, or putting self-care first.

Each of my clients comes to me with the desire to enhance their beauty for a special reason. Whatever that reason is, I am dedicated to making sure they leave looking and feeling like a million bucks!

Q. WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT? A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. Q. WHAT KIND OF LOOK WILL YOU GET FROM THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT? A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment. Q. CAN I STILL RECEIVE A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IF I HAVE HIGHLIGHTS AND/OR COLOR? A. Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine. Q. IS THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT GOING TO MAKE MY HAIR STRAIGHT? A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear smooth and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine. Q. HOW LONG DOES THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT LAST? A. The Brazilian Blowout will last for up to 12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last. Q. CAN YOU APPLY THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT DIRECTLY ON TOP OF OTHER RELAXERS AND STRENGTHENERS? A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the condition of the hair by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids. Q. WILL MY HAIR LOSE VOLUME IF I RECEIVE THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT? A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron. Q. CAN YOU COLOR YOUR HAIR THE SAME DAY YOU RECEIVE A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT? A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. If you get a Brazilian Blowout and wish to get a color service at a later date, you will need to wait 2 weeks.


Many people ask me about beaded sew-in hair extensions in Studio City, Ca. It is the newest form of permanent extensions. As a hair stylist specializing in hair extensions, I work with several hair extension brands, and attachment types. Here is a look into my professional opinion on the beaded sew-in extensions.

Each type of hair extension serves a different purpose. Hair extensions are used to add length and/or fullness. There is no one size fits all for every head. This is why it is important to choose a hair stylist that specializes in hair extensions and can offer their professional opinion. When the extensions are installed properly and the client does at home care, there are less chances of damage and breakage. Hair extensions requires a lot of care and maintenance. Hair extensions are definitely the luxury service out of all salon services, therefore I don't recommend to go cheap on choosing a stylist. You want it done right the first time because the hair is non refundable once you open the package. Plus, you don't want to walk around looking like you have on a bad wig!

Terminology:

Track -tracking involves an individuals natural hair. It is the space on scalp where extensions will be placed.

Weft- long roll of hair that needs to be cut before sewing in

Beaded sew-in extensions:

Your natural hair is tightly beaded in small sections to be used as the base. The hair extensions are then be sewn into each silicone bead. This method is best for those who have medium to thick hair.

Pros -This method does not require tape, glue or heat (less messy). More control of volume, can stack wefts for more fullness (note: more stacks, more tension) Quicker install compared to singles. Last the longest, up to 4 months of wear. The weft can be moved up in between those 3 months. I recommend to come in and see me for a move up each month.

Cons -harsher on scalp and more painful. Not recommended for tender scalp. Can be bulky on fine to med hair (not recommended). Hair can easily matte and tangle due to bulk.

How do I book?

First step is to come in for an in-person consultation. Next, a 50% deposit is required to reserve your appointment. This fund is used to order your hair. I will provide the hair through my vendor. Clients can not bring in their own hair. I have a trusted source for top remy, human hair. The hair can be reused once more if in good condition. Currently offering only beaded sew in on straight to wavy hair only.
