Steel Toes + Stilettos

On Saturday, October 20 DH was proud to support Habitat for Humanity's gala evening of dinner, dancing, and fashion at the Westin Hotel.
The theme "Building Homes and Building Hope" brought together community members and corporate sponsors to participate in silent and live auctions; and of course DH was there to make sure the models' hair was equally glamourous.
Habitat has a Flickr pool of photos from the event.

Creativity helpers

Just wanted to let you all know about the StyleMasters product line that is now in the salon.
These are truly "artist tools" that Chris had a chance to try out last year for the Style Masters competition. Chris came in 5th out of 39 of the world's best stylists!
You can really express yourself with this collection whether your mood is subdued or super-playful.

How fun is this?

Have you ever seen colour like this before? Goldwell has redefined the art of hair colour with their Elumen product line which we are having a blast with here at DH.
The colours are so special and so FAR from anything you can get from a box at the drug store.
This is the kind of application we train extra hard for so bring us your ideas and we'll make something just for you!

Happy New Year to all of our clients - you're like family to us and you inspire us every day to be the best we can be. Stay tuned for stories, news items, and images from upcomping 2012 adventures!

Vidal Sassoon leaves us (beautiful)

The visionary who revolutionized the way we cut and style our hair passed away today at age 84, ending his struggle with leukemia.
Vidal placed emphasis on the structure of the hair to create shape and movement instead of relying on loads of laquer to try to get it to stay put!
The photo above is from a scene in Vidal Sasson The Movie, with the Millennium Bridge in London.
