Peek A Boo Highlights for Spring

One of the best things about spring is trying something new with your hair!  This year I’m really loving Peek A Boo highlights for those who don’t normally get color.  What are Peek a Boo highlights?  Normally highlights go throughout the head to give the appearance of overall lightening.  When you do Peek a Boo highlights you put highlights under the back and sides of the head so that the darker hair is still the primary color and little pops of lighter hair show up when your hair moves or is lifted up.

Here is a great example! If you’d like some Peek-a-Boo highlights give us a call at the salon! 919-867-1133

A Great Headshot is a GREAT Idea!

Put your best image forward

We have a lot of executive clients.  If you have a Linkedin Account you need a GREAT Head Shot!  Why? We all have cameras on our phones right?!  Well yeah… but a selfie just doesn’t communicate the same image as a professional photographed and edited headshot.  You want a GREAT head shot.  You don’t want one that looks like a school portrait from 1985.  You need framing, placement, and great lighting.

What about your hair?

That is a great question.  We recommend that woman get a blowout the day of their photoshoot.  It isn’t a bad idea to have your makeup professionally applied as well.

For guys, we recommend having a fresh hair cut 2 days before your photoshoot.  Don’t take your chances with Great Clips or a similar salon where you have to hope and pray for great results.  Believe us there is a difference.


Who do choose?!

We love working with Mica Parekh with IWP Photography!  She does amazing head shots, is a pleasure to work with, and you should certainly check her out.  Mention this blog post and get your professional headshot for only $100.
