I have some exciting news to share. Last month I went to Washington DC to take a big test to become an American Board Certified HairColorist. This was a 3 part 8am- 5pm test consisting of written, hands on, and interactive. It was one of the hardest tests I have ever taken. After years of studying and on the job experience, everything came down to one test. Would I pass and join the ranks of the most talented professionals in the industry?
After waiting 2 nerve racking weeks to find out my results, Its finally official. I am now an American Board Certified Haircolorist. This is a huge accomplishment in the beauty industry.
At the DC test 44 people tested and only 19 passed.
I am honored and excited to now be part of the American Board of Certified HairColorists.

Before and after
The New LookAbout
This Lovely Lady Desired a low maintenance look, but wants to see a lot of blonde. She can only come in every 10-12 weeks, so she needed something low maintenance that would grow out nicely. Her existing hair had a mixture of her natural color coming in and a lot of old highlights.
Give her a darker shadow root that melts into lighter and brighter ends.
We utilized a darker color close to her natural at the new growth and melted it into a lighter blonde shade on her ends.
The coloring process took about 1 hour 30 minutes to achieve and will look great as it grows in.

Q. Are Keratin Treatments permanent?
A. No. Hair will eventually revert to its natural texture as the treatment eventually leaves the hair.
Q. Who are these treatments for?
A. Any client who wants shinier, smoother, healthier hair or wants to dramatically improve the condition and texture of their hair. All clients are potential Keratin clients.
Q. How long does it take for a complete service?
A. It will take between 2-3 hours to complete a Keratin Treatment.
Q. What is the result of the treatment?
A. Wavy hair will be straight; curly/frizzy hair will be smoother with elimination of frizz and dramatically faster blow dry, ironing or overall finishing time. Subsequent blow dry time will be cut up to 50% or more. Straightening is a breeze with a blow dryer & brush or flat iron. Consecutive treatments will have an increasing smoothing and straightening effect
All clients will leave with straight, sleek hair due to the final flat-iron process. After clients shampoo, some curl will most likely remain but will be frizz-free and can be straightened with minimal effort.
Q. How long will the treatments last?
A. The durability of the treatments is based on several factors, including chemical history of the client, condition and texture of the hair at time of treatment, proper application, proper aftercare, etc. Our Extended Treatments generally last 3-5 months.
Q. How frequently can a client get a treatment?
A. As often as necessary, as long as there is no breakage in the hair. Nothing chemically prevents frequent treatments, but the hair needs to be able to withstand the high iron temperatures.
Q. What about pregnant or breastfeeding clients & Stylists?
A. It is generally NOT recommended to perform services of this type on these clients as no clinical testing has been to determine any potential hazards. Consult a physician before receiving or applying these treatments.
Q. Are Keratin Treatments safe for highlighted, bleached, grey, relaxed, damaged hair?
A. For all hair, the #1 consideration for Keratherapy treatments is the porosity of the hair, and its ability to withstand the high heat of flat irons necessary for these treatments to work. If hair is “fried” or breaking, do not perform the service. The only thing that can damage the hair in this treatment is the heat of the iron, so it is critical that you diagnose the degree of porosity prior to the service.
Q. Can hair color be applied after a keratin Treatment?
A. Yes, but it is recommended to wait 2 weeks.
Q. Can Keratin Treatment be applied directly after a color?
A. Extreme Renewal can be done immediately after a color service.
Q. Can I swim after getting a Keratin Treatment?
A. It is not recommended to swim in Chlorine or Salt water after receiving a Keratin treatment. This can remove the treatment at a faster rate.
Q. What Shampoo do I use?
A. You must use a pH balanced shampoo free of Salts to maintain your Keratin treatment. Your treatment comes with a take home shampoo.
Q. What is KERABOND Technology?
A. A Keratin delivery system that penetrates and bonds the keratin deep into the hair, while sealing the cuticle layer to provide superiorsmoothing, superior frizz control, superior shine and superiorconditioning.
Q. Do Keratin Treatments contain formaldehyde?
A. Extreme Renewal, Intense Renewal and Color Lock & Smooth contain methylene glycol, a mixture of formaldehyde and water. Pure Renewal and Express Renewal are 100% formaldehyde free. All Keratherapy Treatments are OSHA compliant. Consult MSDS for more information.
Q. What is the minimum recommended age for a client to receive a Keratherapy Renewal Treatment?
A. 12 years of age is minimum. However, any client who has a history of respiratory sensitivities, contact dermatitis, asthma or allergic reactions should consult a physician before receiving any salon treatment, regardless of age.
Q. How soon can clients wash their hair or use hair products?
2 days after the treatment.
