Let's Talk Hair

Updated: May 28, 2019

As most of you know I have been a hairstylist for a very long time. I went to Marinello's School of beauty in San Francisco in the mid 80's after I graduated high school. From the first day, I knew I was in the right place. I loved it! The people, working with my hands, being creative. I worked as an apprentice until I became good enough to go behind the chair. I had so much fun. My coworkers were a blast. It was a party most of the time. I became an educator for Matrix hair color and I also worked behind the scenes at hair shows coloring the models hair. I eventually owned my own salon in San Francisco, got married and had two beautiful children. In a nutshell, it was a great career.

A couple of years ago before I was diagnosed with leukemia I was looking for something different. I was getting tired, literally, of being behind the chair. I saw a job posting by a company called Madison Reed. Madison Reed is a home hair color company with a low chemical profile that is made in people. The position was to talk to women over the phone about their hair color and help them find their perfect match. This intrigued me because it was still in my field but got me out from under the chair. I was called in for a series of interviews and every time I went in I noticed their mission statement throughout the office. I saw words like Love, Trust, Joy, Responsibility and Courage, these were qualities that I tried to live by. Today, I do live by them. My final interview was with the CEO and founder, Amy Errett. What a presence. Amy told me about her mission and how she was going to change the hair color industry and I was ready to go along for the ride. My training was a bit harder than I anticipated because I didn't know much about technology and it was a tech company. I can just imagine the engineering department rolling their eyes at some of the stuff that I did. The good part was that I learned a lot and they were very helpful. I worked at Madison Reed for over a year until I got the news of my cancer. I mentioned this before but the support and love that I received from that company was amazing and I will never forget it. They helped me heal. Love is healing, positive thoughts are healing, prayers are healing. If you do not know what to do when you hear a friend, coworker, family member, anyone who is them, send positive thoughts and pray. It helped me. Madison Reed lives up to the words on the wall. Love, Trust, Joy, Responsibility and Courage.

Let's talk hair. Over the years I have talked to so many women who are frustrated about having to go into the salon to get their roots colored every two to four weeks. I don't blame them. I love my clients but felt bad that they would need to color again so soon. Let me offer you a solution and a product that I absolutely love and can not live without. It is called Root Reboot. Root Reboot is hair color that is applied to the roots for ten minutes. It has a spongy applicator and it is so easy to apply. I promise. Here I am applying Root Reboot to my own hair. This was before I lost all my hair. Cute right? Soon, I will demonstrate a hair color application on my short hair. Not sure how cute I will look. You be the judge. Enjoy!

So what did you think? Easy right? There are seven shades to choose from and if you are not sure which color to pick, color crew are happy to answer any questions that you may have. I am here to help too! If you are interested here is the link to order. Root Reboot Landing Page.

What did we learn today? Love one another and go color those roots :)
