Before and After of the Cezanne Smoothing System. The picture on the left was my client last Spring, and the picture on the right is the same client (just different hair color) after tonight’s Cezanne. This service removes frizz and smooths (not straightens) hair for 3-5 months with a silk infusion. #beforeandafter #cezanne #cezannesmoothingtreatment #smoothhair #saturdayslay #salonsaturday #puravidacolorstudio

Balayage is traditionally intended to be subtle and diffused and create soft dimension. Every now and then, I meet a client who is looking for just that. #balayage #balayagehighlights #mastersofbalayage #balayageartists #boardcertifiedhaircolorist #davines #davinescolor #puravidacolorstudio

Usually i post photos of hair that I’ve done, but i have to give credit to @rainepuravida for this one because this is MY hair! Root shadow and balayage ombre. Hairstylists often do each other’s hair in the middle of the night, or on their day off, or some other inconvenient time because of how busy we are, so I definitely appreciate Raine doing my hair at night on both of our days off. #hairstylistprobs #hairstylisthair #balayage #balayageombre #davines #davinescolor #puravidacolorstudio

Highs and Lows! Previous flamboyage highlights “winterized” with flamboyage lowlights. Sometimes subtle is better! #highlights #lowlights #flamboyage #davinesflamboyage #davines #davinescolor #maskwithvibrachrom #haircut #blowout #saturslay #salonsaturday #puravidacolorstudio

I love helping clients “winterize” their hair. Previous balayage can be toned to richer colors in a variety of ways! Today we did a permanent color using Davines Mask With Vibrachrom Colour, and finished with a haircut and blowout #balayage #balayageombre #balayageartists #mastersofbalayage #behindthechair #modernsalon #winterhair #winterized #womenshaircut #blowout #tuesdayslay #puravidacolorstudio

Foil highlights and a haircut. If you like your hair blonde, consider asking your stylist if you HAVE to continue using bleach. Depending on your natural color, you can stop creating a ton of damage with bleach and just use haircolor. The integrity of your hair is important!  #foilhighlights #blondehair #blondehighlights #haircut #hairintegrity #davines #davinescolor #maskwithvibrachrom #behindthechair #modernsalon #mastersofbalayage #balayageartists #americansalon #puravidacolorstudio
