Information about online booking

Posted on: September 26th, 2011 by Alter Ego Hair Design

I appreciate all my loyal clients/friends and the patience you all have shown during the transition to the new online booking site. I am always looking for new ways to become more efficient and streamlined in my day-to-day operations, and I truly think that this system will just keep getting better.

Though there have been times that the product has not worked exactly according to plan and a couple of cases of my human error, we have all kept calm and carried on. It seems that perfection requires patience for all of us at times, and I could not be more grateful for your understanding.

Some great features of this new system are the appointment confirmation and reminders via email and text. Please note that if you think you booked an appointment online, but did not immediately receive an email with “New Appointment Notification” in the subject line, it means that your appointment was not booked. The system will “time out” if there is an extended delay in the booking process. If this happens, you should be able to log back in and schedule again. You will get an email as soon as your appointment is booked, then again as a reminder 48 hours in advance.

For those of you who haven’t tried booking an appointment online, I hope you do soon. As always, I hope you’re having a great hair day!

Stay cool and chic this summer with braids!

Posted on: July 25th, 2011 by Alter Ego Hair Design

Hair Salon BraidsYou’ve seen it on the red carpet, and even for casual days out and about… celebrities are rocking this trend for day and night. There are even salons in West Hollywood that are offering “braiding bar” services!

You don’t have to be a celebrity to try this style today. There are videos all over the internet on braiding how-tos. My favorite (but also the most challenging) is the fishtail braid.

The best thing about braids is that the style can be imperfect and a bit undone and still be very chic. Fortunately this style tends to work best on those of us that are typically plagued with frizz in this terribly humid weather.

Try a braid today, and stay cool in this crazy summer heat!

Bold Haircolor Rules this Season

Posted on: December 20th, 2010 by Alter Ego Hair Design

Hair Color SalonFashion trends play starring roles when it comes to haircolor. Both Ashley Olsen and Jessica Biel made a splash recently when they ditched their basic blond strands in favor of sultry chocolate hues. These ladies have a penchant for constantly changing up their color; they’ve both been blonde, red, even neon, but the switch to these rich brunette shades reinforces the rule that this fall, the trend is all about going bold. Top editorial stylist Bradley Irion says to look to the fall runways and ad campaigns and you’ll find plenty of inspiration for updating your color from ho-hum to huh-mazing.

For fall, most top designers kept clothing simple, Bradley says. In general, they opted for classic, monochromatic color schemes distinct switch from summer’s brights and florals. Fashion-forward individuals will definitely embrace these new styles, so it’s up to you to ensure that your haircolor isn’t living in the past.

When it comes to blondes, “Stripy highlights are on their way out,” declares Bradley. A better strategy, he suggests, is to soften the base color and then add a few highlights using a very natural placement. With brunettes, A rich, solid brunette with integrity is my favorite shade for fall. Think rich, warm sable and dark milk chocolate, he advises. For redheads, avoid dusty-looking, flat color. “Redheads need to be fiery, shiny and rich this fall,” says Bradley.

Whatever your haircolor choice for the season, make it bold and keep it fresh!
