Hi! I'm a Cosmetologist and Dip Dye and ombre is still huge and I always get appointments for it. 1. It will stay depending on often you wash your hair and how healthy the ends of your hair are. always a good idea to get a trim to remove breakage and split ends after the color is applied. 2. if you already have light hair, bleach is not needed. if you have medium/light hair, a very mild bleach can be used with minimal damage. if you have dark hair, bleach will need to be applied, probably twice, then dyed to your color of choice and then toned to make it exactly what you want. 3. you'll always use semi permanent dye unless there is gray hair, or the hair has already been dyed (aka- not virgin hair) HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL! :)

Post image for she dreams in color

ever since the vogue australia shoot featuring abbey lee with bright pink dip dyed hair, the idea of doing it myself has sat in the back of my mind, resurfacing whenever i saw someone else try the trend. here are some awesome examples that inspired me to say yes when I was asked to be the guinea pig for our how-to video :)

the best part about it is that my ends are bleached now, and when the pink washes out i can try another color.  as much as i love the blue and green, i’ m not sure i could pull it off.  as a brunette, i’m a big fan of the ombre look in the last pic – brown with blond ends. that might be something i’ll have to try.

anonymous - did you ever have to bleach the parts of your hair to get the color to show? I want to do this but I don't want to have to bleach it too!

Autumn Gypsy

Post image for Autumn Gypsy

Untitled-8

Crushed velvet, soft dresses, shawls, fedoras and heavy jewelry contrast against ripped jeans, shaggy knitwear and fur.

Chunky wedges and tiered chiffon slips will leave trails of beauty. The collection makes you want to escape to a forbidden forest and lose yourself amongst folklore and witchcraft.

She’s a traveler whose home is a charismatic caravan her rock n roll boyfriends sings poetry while she sleeps deep. It’s a world of allurement and hocus pocus.

The attitude is intense, myterious and moody, she’s a deep thinker who soaks in her surroundings,

Enchanting.

Can you please add the song "Gypsy" by Fleetwood Mac to the in store cd's? I think it fits perfectly with the season and autumn gypsy trend!

I love these designs. They are rich in personality and beautiful textures

have you guys heard of birdie busch? she’s a philly native whose atmospheric folk music and whimsical voice are starting to gain wider recognition.  her myspace page describes her music as “weird and winding: she sings about magic, luck, the universe, the human heart speeding off on dangerous missions like Inspector Gadget. An intimate partnership with long time band mates has assured that her records are cohesive and remarkably mature, a dreamy Americana too warm to be made in this decade but too grounded and aware to be made anytime else.”

she has just released an EP of four songs inspired by her hometown (philadelphia) called “everyone will take you in” and our music coordinator gave me a copy last week. i was immediately intrigued by the packaging alone, it’s really lovely. it includes vinyl and cd versions of the EP as well as a stack of vintage looking postcards with song lyrics on the back and a letter from birdie explaining the meaning of this project. i wanted to share some photos just because i thought it was so nice!

Post image for The highlighted Shows so far – NY Fashion Week

So Far from New York the show that has stood out for me is the Charlotte Ronson show.

Everything was done so well from the combination of textures and prints to the styling and layering.

The collection was a delight “dressing down but in a romantic way” was the thesis of the range, sheerness seemed to be the prominent fabric, layered on top of prints.LOVE.

Floral prints were dressed down with grungy cardigans and loose knitted hats and… I’m all about long maxi denim dresses - this one is perfect!

It does seem like sheerness is going to be a big trend for Spring/Summer 2011, I’m seeing it in most collection (see Thakoon) everything from sheer tops to bottoms to maxi dresses.

I added in this Lela Rose ball gown because I thought it was breathtaking the subtle tie dye at the bottom is spectacular.

These are the shows that have excited me so far and I can’t wait to see what else NY has to offer!
