  • Ch Ch Ch Changes

    After countless hours of consideration & some serious soul searching, I've decided that 2017 is the year to make some big changes at Rebel Rebel.

    One of the most challenging changes is with my pricing structure. Some things won't change and some things will change drastically! Starting today, my custom, specialty colour work & corrections will be dramatically increasing. This is my signature work and over the course of many years, I have specialized in creative colour processes, continued my education, and have earned a great reputation for this work. Unfortunately, I have been completely irresponsible for not increasing my prices as my skills & expertise bloomed. If you have any questions, please private message me and we will work together to find some creative solutions.

    Another very exciting change is that you will now find my good friend and amazing master stylist Kate O'Shea working next to me for the next couple months as she starts growing her own business. Kate is a phenomenal stylist and is the yin to my yang — wait until you see her beautiful work! I should add that she is super funny and probably curses as much as I do!

    There will be lots of fun surprises, contests, and giveaways happening over the next few months and I think you're really going to enjoy the new energy at Rebel Rebel!

    I thank you, Rebels, with all my heart for your continued support as we keep shaking up this awesome little city!

  • Hair Witch

    Hair Witch

    I often receive awesome compliments on my work (thank you!!). I get called names like Hair Witch, Hair Wizard, Hair Magician but I have something important to share with you.

    What I do is pretty magical in a way but more importantly it comes from hard work, experience, well thought out formulations, and care. I do a lot of major colour corrections and epic hair changes but ultimately, the work that I create comes from precise processes which take time and creavity. I am governed by my own knowledge & resources as well as the condition & history of the hair I am working with. These big hair transformations require me to be sharp-minded during multi-process services which can take over 5 hours sometimes!

    What I do isn't easy yet I'm the first to undervalue myself. The reality is, I am always humbled by the fact that I get to do what I love for a career.   

    I wanted to share a couple photos of the process of my latest major colour overhaul. Julia came to me with 10 weeks of dark regrowth, vibrant yellow, green, purple, and turquoise. She left with a black shadow root, light purple foiled with bright turquoise, and an underlay of navy blue. It was a 5.5hr process and the results were awesome! 

    Vibrantly coloured hair like this requires specific aftercare. This type of service is not cheap and your investment is in your hands when you leave the salon. The more you shampoo, blow dry, and heat style your hair will definitely affect its longevity! The products you use will affect its longevity. Fortunately, Julia takes great care of her hair and continues to get compliments right up until she ends up in the chair again!

    Honestly, I'm not a hair witch [*Although, admitedly, I think that title is pretty rad]. The magic I do is actually my talent, my expertise, my jam. 

  • New Pricing

    That time has come. I am truly sorry for any inconvenience, but I must increase my prices. In the history of my career (from Junior, to General, to Master), I have not made any price adjustments to my current menu even though my costs to run the salon have increased many times over the years and not to mention the additional costs of training. 

    Giving yourself a value is one of the most difficult challenges you face as a creative professional. Today, I share my newly revised price list with you and will be happy to answer any questions in an email or text. Thank you for your support and understanding! Many Thank yous!

  • Olaplex + Colour Correction

    My friend Kelley came in today for a colour correction. Normally, we would touch up her "bling" with a medium blonde, do a million foils throughout the top and sides, toss in a couple peek-a-boos of purple (and green!) and call it a day. Ok, her regular hair do is pretty involved on my end. haha

    Today, she tempted me with an all-over platinum with purple underneath. What, exactly, is on the table here?

    1. Cover her roots.

    2. Remove the medium blonde base shade without overprocessing the pre-exsisting highlights.

    3. Remove Purple & Green peek-a-boos for a new colour placement.

    4. Don't destroy her hair.

    5. I was double-booked with another cool client so I had to time things perfectly.

    Without hesitating about a 5 hour colour correction, I grabbed the Olaplex and hit the hair! For those of you who don't know how amazing Olaplex is, let me just say, it is a product that I can use to push the limits a little farther without completely compromising the hair. It helps to rebuild bonds in the hair structure while lightener (or colour) is busting them up. 

    Long story short, Kelley is rocking platinum and purple (and she still has all of her hair!)! It was a long process but I am ecstatic with the results!

    *note: This is a colour correction. Thankfully, Kelley sent me some photo ideas of things she liked so I knew we needed more time than our usual appointment. Colour correction takes time, patience, skill, and dollar bills. ;)

  • Cezanne Perfect Finish

    Cezanne Perfect Finish

    A couple weeks ago, I got my Cezanne Perfect Finish certification. Finally, I recieved my product and put it to the test.

    So if you know me, you know my hair is wavy/curly and heavily processed (Do as I say, not as I do). A couple months ago, I lightened my hair a couple times and did some pretty gnarly things to it which left me frizzy and sucky. 

    This is where Cezanne comes to the table. This is a smoothing system which infuses keratin, vitamins, botanical extracts, and sericin (a component of silk) into the hair. The Cezanne Perfect Finish treatment is not a chemical relaxer/straightener, it is a smoothing treatment which smooths the hair while repairing it and softening curl. 

    I love my natural waves, we all know that, but the condition of my hair was compromised so I decided to guinea pig myself with the treatment and to forfeit my coils while gaining hair strength and smoothness. Knowing my fine texture well, I was certain to lose the curl. This is not the promise this treatment makes, it is a reality for my hair type.

    Review: My hair is f#ckin' awesome!!! The before and after pictures are the selfies I took after a rough blow dry (no product, no brushes, no combs). You can clearly see how puffy and frazzled my hair looked before. The after photo looks as though I have flat ironed. It was not ironed. Since doing the service, my hair is shinier, feels healthy, isn't frizzy, and I've gotten a ton of compliments on how nice it looks. I have even had a ton of compliments on my colour even though it has been weeks since I've done it!

    This service requires a consultation and maintenance products. If you would like to make an investment into easy, smooth, healthy hair (and yeah, summer is coming!), gimme a shout. You know I'm not a pushy salesperson and I stand behind this treatment 100%.
