Choosing the Right Hair Colorist

To respond to some of our readers' requests, I’d like to share some great tips on how to choose the right colorist in your area. Getting your hair colored should be more than just sitting on the chair and praying that the colorist understands what you want. Here’s what you should look for in your next hair color professional:

·     Consultation time. Dialogue is a must! Whether this is a first-timer or life-long customer, an eye-to-eye sit down is a must.
·     Consideration. Budget, availability and lifestyle (5 kids, husband, dog and bunny to take care of) should be taken into consideration before suggesting to a brunette a full head of blonde highlights requiring religious salon visits!
·     Open Forum. Hair colorist must open a space for clients to voice questions, concerns, hair issues.
·     Honesty. The hair colorist must listen to what the client wants, but also needs to step up as a professional/expert and educate.

If you have further questions or comments, get in touch with me through twitter, facebook or by visiting our website: http://www.salonratay.com/

Premiere Orlando International Beauty Event

This past weekend I attended the Premiere Orlando International Beauty Event.  Premiere Beauty Show is one of the biggest beauty industry trade shows in the country, and it took place right in my backyard, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando!  I had the pleasure of working with Beth Minardi coloring collections of blondes, brunettes, and redheads.  It was wonderful to spend the weekend with one of my mentors in the beauty industry and to be able to collect thoughts about the Joico Haircolor lines Vero K-pak color  and Vero K-pak Chrome. Overall, the beauty show was a memorable weekend filled with a lot of creativity, inspiration and talent - I can't wait for next years show! Check out some pictures I took at the event.
