Pet Peeve #16

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

There has been a rash of young women showing me Pinterest photos of a very horrible hair cut for long hair. The V cut. I understand that having long hair limits what you can do with it to show something trendy and fun. You see the longer your hair, the thinner the ends look. It…

My obsession with Vidal Sassoon

My obsession with Vidal Sassoon

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

I will always be a fan of Vidal Sassoon. They taught me about innovation, execution, precision cutting. Here is a collection of his work circa the 1960’s. Vidal Sassoon took me as a young hairstylist of 22 and molded me into a top notch stylist. The training was grueling and at times degrading but the…

Balayage – The new sun kissed look

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines.

Permanent eyelashes

Permanent eyelashes sound great right? I mean who doesn’t want longer fuller lashes? Well ladies there is a fad in town and I urge you not to partake.

The Sombré

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

First there was the Ombré. I first noticed it on Chloe Kardashian a few years ago. I thought to myself, “Oh My God who wants to look like they have 8 inches of dark roots? It’s trailer park chic? They look like they have needed color over over a year now.” Truly, I thought it…

Where to get an Ombre in Destin Ombres. The word ombre comes from the French word “shadow”. Ombre is the actual coloring technique. It is the transition of a darker shade to a lighter shade. This technique can be beautiful, or it can be a total disaster if not done correctly. However I have seen…

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

Buyer Beware! Home Hair Color At least once a day I will encounter a client who has put a box of store bought hair color on her hair. This may work once, maybe twice but ultimately the color will go to black or even an odd orange or even a green shade. Finally, they make…

by Bill Trotter  ·  February 4th, 2017

Very often clients flip through hair styling magazines and eventually ask me, “Who would wear this?” Generally these hair magazines feature hair styling as an art form and show you what the possibilities are. The hair cut is the architecture of the style and color is the way in which we light it up. The…
