Salutations from Paris

As promised I am keeping my eyes and ears open to the sights of hair and fashion as I visit and revisit new and favorite Parisian haunts such as Montmartre, The Effiel Tower, and The Arc de Triomphe.

These visits have included many Metro rides and a lot of walking.  Parisians and tourists alike are sporting a variety of hats and scarves.  A popular scarf appears to be the striped scarf, tres elegant!

Under most chapeaux Parisian hair appears to be strikingly similar to what I see and create myself back home in Oakland, California at Right Angle Salon



I have noticed more women sporting short hair but what has really caught my attention is the attention to detail for one's entire look from the hat to the boots!  Men, women, and children wear an ensemble that strikes an elegant, coordinated effect. 


My husband and I have been asked more than once for help from tourists - perhaps the Parisian look has rubbed off on us as well : )

5 Hairstyles Everyone Should Try At Least Once - Daily Makeover

Happy 2013!

Will this be the year you try a new hairstyle or hair color?

I am on my way to Europe where I will be blogging about the European styles over the next ten days. I will be scouting out the Paris trends as well as the trends in Brussels and Amsterdam.

In the mane time see the link below for a Stateside view of five hairstyles everyone should try at least once.......

5 Hairstyles Everyone Should Try at Least Once

We are boarding in five minutes and I'm so excited. It has been a long time since I have been to Europe.  I am traveling with my American passport since I became a citizen in 1995.  I feel so lucky to have grown up in one part of the world and to live in America, especially in California.

Stay tuned for updates from across the pond!

It's time to board!!

Christmas Chic


It is the busiest month of the year in the salon and I am getting ready to go to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam for my 25th Wedding Anniversary!!

Me pre Paris


I am so excited!  I grew up in London and believe it or not went to Paris for the first time for a school trip when I was ten years old.  I am so glad my mum and dad said I could go.  I felt so grown up going off to Paris with our headmistress,  Mrs Gibbs, my favorite teacher, Mr Stretton and my school friends.  It was a magical time, seeing the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Elysee and Nortre Dame for the first time.

I like to think that growing up in London and visiting Paris influenced me in my love for the beauty industry and the world of fashion.  London always on the cutting edge and the French always so chic.



Speaking of chic I have added a link below for you of 20 holiday styles to view for inspiration!

Top 20 Holiday Hairstyles - Daily Makeover

Also here is a helpful hint, for a quick day to evening pick-me-up, mist your hair with a spray shine product.  I recommend, Unite D Frizz Argan Oil, we have it at the Right Angle Salon where you will find me counting the days to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam.

Au revoir pour maintenant and until we meet again have a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!

See you in 2013 - when the deep side part will be the height of hair fashion.......

Tis the Beauty Season Tips!

Busy, busy blessed, busy, busy, stressed, busy, crazed, busy, dazed!

Must be the holidaze season!

My beauty tips for Thanksgiving on my Facebook page were:
Smile, breathe, use your products, drink water and remember only your hairdresser knows for sure!

My beauty tips for Christmas are as follows:
Smile, breathe, use your products, drink water, and remember only your hairdresser knows for sure!

Your hairdresser knows that you earned every grey hair on your head. Your hairdresser knows that you miss the long golden locks of your youth, but you do not miss your youth. Your hairdresser knows that you have tales too tender to tell. Your hairdresser knows that your heart bursts with joy and for one hour you can share each and every precious story with us.

Tis the season to shop, to eat, to drink to be merry!
And tis the season to dress up, product up, backcomb, spray, shine.
Tis the season to show off your beautiful self!

Life is short, love your hair!
Happy Holidaze!
