Welcome to my blog...This is the corner of my world where I can share the adventures of being a La Jolla hairstylist specializing in weddings and styling. You will find inspirational photos of the latest trends in cut/color/styling, and well as little stories here and there from my life. Currently I became a mom Dec. 2015 to the sweetest little boy...He has opened my heart to an enormous love. Thank you for sharing in my adventures.
It started when I met instructor Linda Corde-Ashley backstage at the Crystal Ballroom run through for Fade to Light fashion show. Her energy is kind and open always. Linda worked in Switzerland for years before returning to the US to raise her children near her family. With worlds of experience Linda brings one of a kind eduction. She introduces her students into the fashion community to get real world experience networking with salons, models, designers...I have seen her teams more often than any other school. Her creative vision, flexibility, and organization has made it a pleasure working with Linda and her team.
Besides top notch instructors and involvement in the fashion network, Beau Monde uses high end professional haircolor. I have used Wella beginning in my apprenticeship in 2007, and have continued to use it in the 3 salons I've worked in. Wella is also the number one color choice of Bumble and Bumble, a product line known for styling some of the best runway shows in NYC. This color choice of Beau Monde will put their students at an advantage throughout their careers starting them with this selection. I have clients who find me specifically online because I use Wella Color through the website salon locator. The results are long lasting, gentle, and natural tones. Not only does Beau Monde use Wella. They use Koleston Perfect permanent line and Color Touch Demipermanent line. These can only be purchased by professionals. Sally's and other public beauty supply stores carry Color Charm and other Wella lines which are good, but the tones and ingredients are slightly different. I am impressed that Beau Monde sets their students apart with this high quality color line.
Beau Monde won Wella Cosmetology School of the year in 2013.
