My buddy Beth Minardi, colorist extraordinaire, filled me on some great news today as we walked out of our dance class (our New Year's resolution to one day be Rockettes!).
First of all, Beth has joined forces with Joico as a “Special Consultant.” She is to be integrally involved in its hair color business and will be representing the brand globally. “I could not be more excited,” says Beth. “Becoming a part of the dedicated group at Joico feels absolutely perfect for me! Such an honor! This amazing company has big plans for hair color and has decided to reach out to hair colorists in ways I have only dreamed of before. Our new association represents, for me, bright, colorful horizons and wonderful new beginnings.”
Wow … this is huge!
Then she drops some more good news on me…
Beth has just been named the recipient of NAHA’s 2010 “Lifetime Achievement Award.” This coveted award, given to just one special person each year, will be presented July 17 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. She is so deserving!
Finally—her Minardi Beauty Products wet line has just became part of the East Coast Salon Services family of products.
This is all such great news for Beth, for Joico and for the industry. While we may not be Rockettes in this lifetime ... Beth is also great dancer! 2010 is looking good for Ms. Minardi.
Meagan Reitz (@meaganreitzhair) of Skin Bliss Spa and Salon, Albuquerque, New Mexico, wowed us with this makeover that we found on Instagram. We contacted her to get more details. Here she shares the how-to.
Vanessa Castro (@extraglossy_) from NYC says she is "obsessed with doing hair - especially color corrections. I love that they challenge me to think and always try new things." Here she had an opportunity to meet a challenge head on in a correction that took 6 1/2 hours.
When we saw this makeover on Instagram, we had to know more. Hairdresser Nicole Boccio of Cactus Salon and Spa (@cactussalonsmithtown), Smithtown, New York, says "I had been doing a doubled processed blonde on Kelly Sampson for some time now. She came requesting 'mermaid hair'. She had 2 inches of level 5 roots." Here Boccio shares the details for this makeover.
Carissa Castiglia (@colorbymisscariss) of Eva Scrivo Salons (@evascrivosalons) says, "My client was a natural level 6 and desired a golden level 9." Here she shares how she achieved this gorgeous result.
Kim Bruce (@themisfitblonde), co-owner of Monroe on Mane (@monroeonmane), Sturbridge, MA., specializes in blondes and hairdressing. "This guest has been a client of mine for almost a year now. It has taken four sessions to achieve our desired shade of silver blonde." Here Bruce shares the details for the transformation.
Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
This client had dreams of platinum blonde, but then all of a sudden, she wanted to go red! This was a big change from platinum, so colorist Lauren Barton made SURE this was what her client wanted. Her client said to go for it!
