Curly Hair Extensions

Most of the time when we think hair extensions, we think of straight, soft, silky hair. But there is an alternative option when it comes to extensions. Many stars like Rihanna and Beyoncé change up their hair like they change up their socks. They go from short black Mohawks, to long and wavy red hair. Even if you have straight hair, we can use these curly hair extensions to give you a whole new look..

 

Kim Kardashian’s Hair Extensions?

This week the company I use as my supplier for Hair Extensions let me know Kim Kardashian uses the same type of extensions I sell to my customers. Now, please, I have not called Kim or Kris to confirm this fact myself. I am taking the word of HairDreams Usa.

Hair Extensions serve several functions. For those of us who love to change up our styles often, hair extensions  give us options.

If you find that shoulder length hair is just right for you most of the time, but for special occasions, or just to change the mood, it would be fun to have long hair, I can do that for you with Hairdreams extensions.

I have customers who would love to put a little color in the hair, but they aren’t ready to commit to having a deep red stripe in the hair for a few months.  Hair extensions can be the perfect solution.  AND HAIR EXTENSIONS  ARE NOT JUST for WOMEN, men use them as well. Look at what the people from Hairdreams have to say :

“FASCINATING STRANDS IN TRENDY NATURAL AND FASHION COLORS

Real Human hair extensions are not only the perfect choice for chic styling but also a natural alternative to normal highlights. They come in a vast array colours from natural tones to vibrant powerful colours.

All colours are characterized by their outstanding brilliance and durability. They allow for a variety of trendy colour effects and are gentle and harmless to the natural hair.

A positive side effect is that hair extensions also, simply, provide a greater amount of hair for extra fullness and volume. The huge variety of combinations of colours, lengths and structures allows for an almost endless number of creative hairstyles. With just a few strands, you can produce striking effects.”

Head over to their site and take a peekat some of the beautiful colors and styles:

Women In Business

I am a woman in business!! As a matter of fact I am a woman in TWO businesses!! For hair styling, I work at Salon Ambience in Huntington Beach, and to take careof the rest of your body and soul, I own http://ambiancemedspahb.com/about-us/also in Hungtington Beach.

Owning my business has felt like the right option for me. I get to run my business my way, hire good people, take excellent care of my customers and invest my time in something that gives back to my community. It is not easy owning your own business. I have heard my friends with regular jobs  say ” Boy, I should open up my own business, then I can make my own hours, and just work when I want.”. Most businesses that are sucessful don’t work that way. My hours have to be convenient for my clients. I have to be the stylist, the cosmetologist, the book keeper, the appointment maker and the manager of several people who work in my organization.

It is not easy, and sometimes it’s down right hard, but it is always rewarding and these businesses are MINE. I can change what is not working, I can implement new things, and some things I can keep the same, because that is what my clients are happy with.

I was just reading some interesting informationa about women owned business at NAWBO and I found these statistics:

Women Owned Business in the United  States:

  • 10.1 million firms are owned by women (50% or more), employing more than 13
    million people, and generating $1.9 trillion in sales as of 2008.
  • Three quarters of all women-owned businesses are majority owned by women
    (51% or more), for a total of 7.2 million firms, employing 7.3 million people,
    and generating $1.1 trillion in sales.
  • Women-owned firms (50% or more) account for 40% of all privately held firms.

Women Owned Business is one of the fastest growing sectors of the business community. I know why I own my businesses, I can’t speak for others. For me it is all of the reasons I stated in this blog, and more. It is a sense of pride in the work I do, and the feeling I get when a customer leaves my place feeling happy, beautiful and confident!

Thank you all for supporting me in my endeavors!!

Have you ever noticed, when you see pictures of some of the more famous Hollywood starlets, their hair can grow or shrink several inches between photos? It doesn’t actually grow, but they do have well paid, highly sough after stylists who “grow” their hair for them. It’s called Hair Extensions

You can buy cheap ones in those Kiosks at some malls, but it’s best to have me put the good ones in for you. I have a training video from my supplier, it will show you everything that goes into putting on Hair extensions, take a look and tell me what you think. Or better yet, call me when it’s over and I can put some in for you!!!

Did Miley Cyrus Really pay that much for hair extensions?

I was out looking for snippets of interesting articles for my blog posting today and I came across one that I just had to share!!

industry insiders now say Cyrus has returned to her hip-length locks. Not only that, but you won’t believe how much she paid for them!
A cool $24,000. Sources told InTouch Weekly that “Miley bought the best hair possible, and then had it dyed to match hers exactly. Her hair is an investment.”

Jennifer Lopez – Great Hair!!

I have been watching a little bit of American Idol, and for me, as a Spa owner and Professional Hair Stylist, I am more fascinated by the Hair and Makeup than the singing. I guess that because of my profession, that is just where my eyes land first!!!

Jennifer understands the affect of Beautiful Hair!!

I love both Jennifer’s and Steven Tyler’s hair. I don’t want to say for certain, but I wouldn’t be surprised if maybe Jennifer  has a hair  extension or two in and amongst all of  her own beautiful hair. She is of Puerto Rican descent, so her natural color is darker. Her hair is highlighted, to perfection for her warm skin tones, and I can tell she uses good products for her hair type.

Steven is another thing all together. His hair is all about sex appeal and fun. It seems each week he has more feathers in his hair. And Hair extensions? I am not sure about that. I am sure that he also takes very good care of his hair. It is shiny, and falls in gentle waves around his face.

Both of these stars know full well that hair is NOT an afterthought!! It is your fifth accessory!! Good shoes, Clear Skin, great smile, well fitting clothes, and GREAT HAIR.

I have helped so many good people who come to me with frizzy or over processed hair. I know what products to use to help them restore their hair to its natural beauty. And when mother nature does not get it quite right, well I can help with that as well. Our hair color products are some of the finest you can buy, and I have been carefully trained to use them to your best advantage!!

See you soon,

Maria Armenteros
