Photo taken from Yes it's true, over the past year or two, eyelash surgery has gotten a little press. NOT ENOUGH unfortunately, to make people actually want to do it. First of all, I personally don't want needles weaving in and out of my eyelids. I can't imagine the pain that might be involved not to mention it just sounds unfavorable.The main reason I might encourage eyelash transplant

Traveling made easy!

Spring has sprung, sprouted, sprooted and it feels like it's completely over here in Southern California. Yesterday temperatures reached close to 100 degrees and I must have had 4 servings of ice cream (amidst my daily shopping). Nonetheless, the beaches were jammed with volleyball players, bikers, roller bladers, and thousands of people eager to get some Vitamin D. As spring break and summer are

"But I can't fix my hair like you do!!!!!"How many times have you said that famous line to your hairstylist? The cut or color are complete, and you sit in the chair underneath the 75 pound cape of truth and watch carefully as your hairstylist selects product by product, to prep your hair for styling. Each section is carefully combed through, separated, and the hair looks like beautiful pieces of

The Amazing Ms. Catherine Townsend

I received a call from London last week for a client who wanted cut & color in my studio. The soft southern tones came across on my salon's caller ID from an overseas number which caught me a bit by surprise. Being a southerner myself, I couldn't quite place if it was a deep European accent, or truly a southern accent that I was hearing. Nonetheless I took the appointment and carried on with

Should I tip my hairstylist?

There are several things to consider when it comes to tipping. It seems everywhere we turn there's a tip jar set aside for people to accept "free money." We tip waiters, we tip hotel staff, we tip the car wash attendees, we tip our pet sitters, and so on. Tipping in the United States has become an expected custom for just about every service out there, other than the bank teller or the

Breaking up is hard to do.

Over the years I've been asked my opinion so many times for magazines, news articles, and just casual chat with friends "How do I tell my hairstylist I'm moving on - or should I?"ABSOLUTELY YOU SHOULD.Imagine having a great friend that you meet for dinner the first Friday of every month. Next, imagine showing up for what you think is your regularly scheduled dinner, and not only does your friend

Summertime Hair Tips

It's April 2008, and yes, summer is right around the corner. As I write from my home office in Los Angeles, I sometimes take for granted how lucky we are here to have the weather that we do. Blue skies, soft breezes, and every day is a great day for ice cream or frozen yogurt. Fortunately, we don't really deal with torrential rains, or cows being swept away by hurricanes or tornados. It's quite
