Keeping up with Queen T!

We know.. Things come up, brunch got too boozy, your iCal was hacked, you had to watch the Beyoncé Bowl…There’s a million reasons why you couldn’t make last weekend’s color class taught by, the one and only, Tracey Cunningham. Don’t worry, we still love you enough to gather the links to the Queen’s latest video tutorials. These are just a taste of what her classes offer, so you better get your butt to the next one for the full effect!!!

Trend Alert: “After Sex-Hair”!!!

, , , , , , ,

Ok ladies… We aren’t talking about that ratted nest after a night full of passion and pillow talk, just a little behind-the-bleachers, 2nd base kind of rendezvous and the hair that follows suit! “After Sex Hair”, “Sex Hair” or even “Bedhead” (for our G rated followers) has been hitting the charts for this Spring’s HOTTEST hair style trend.

We sat down in the salon with our very own sexy stylist, Joseph Orozco, to get a few tips on how he’s mastered this do. Here are some simple steps for you to accomplish this look at home (with or without hitting the sheets).

“The key to this look is volume and texture. While the hair is still wet I apply Volume Mist by Milbon USA. I then blow the hair straight but with lots of body. After blow drying, I use Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray which is going to give you more weightless texture. Then leaving the ends out, I curl the hair with a 11/4” Professional Marcel Iron. Once the curls are set, I have my client lie back while I brush them out with my fingers. Mess it, scrunch it, bend it, basically throw it around; think messy beach wave. To finish the look I use Davines This is a Strong Hairspray which will hold your tousled locks in place (more like all over the place!). It’s supposed to look like you had fun with it… Literally and physically. ;) ” -Joseph

Close encounters of the Celebrity Kind

On any given day our salon is kind of the Grand Central Station of Beverly Hills, and 9 times out of 10 there’s at least one major celeb sitting in our chairs getting their mane managed, or their nails a next level mani/pedi. Here’s this week’s paparazzi pics!

clockwise from top left:
  1. JLO who literally got ‘Best Dressed’ and ‘Best Beauty Look’ on every single list imaginable. Hair color à la Tracey Cunningham.
  2. Kimberly Perry  of ‘The Band Perry” and her lust-worthy locks shot in the salon by our very own photog Luke Austin-Paglialonga! Her perfect blonde by Chelsea Belushi and bomb blow-out by Joseph Orozco
  3. Le Sigh… Will we ever grow up to be Chrissy Teigen? Prob not, but at least we can stare at her in the salon. Blonde courtesy of our Queen T, Tracey Cunningham.
  4. Tish & Noah Cyrus celebrate their extensions from Melissa Brown and Raz Rivera. (jk. they were celebrating Noah’s bday)
  5. #GIRLBOSS, Sophia Amoruso, client of Stacy Ho & Sarah Conner, throws a grunge inspired, tiara slangin’ party at her Melrose store with COURTNEY LOVE. I mean.. this woman had a kid with Kurt Cobain. RIP

Jesse Montana & His Extracurricular Activities

Jesse, @thejessemontana, has become a go to stylist for Hollywood hotties popping up everywhere. This week Jesse stepped out of the Salon to work on a music vid for Lele Pons, the Twitter, Vine, Snapchat, IG extraordinaire (4 MILLION FOLLOWERS), and for that Pretty Little Liar, Janelle Parish, who is being featured in the next issue of LOVE magazine (if you don’t read it, you should).

Keeping up with Queen T

Probably the busiest woman we know, Tracey Cunningham never ceases to impress us. Not only is she the most sought after colorist in Hollywood, but she’s been titled “Detail Maker of the Year” by Marie Claire and E! at the Annual Image Maker Awards held at the Chateau Marmont on Tuesday!!! On top of this and the Golden Globes, she sat down with Yahoo.com to dissect her top 6 celeb hair colors and then jetted off to Barcelona to chill with Shakira… I mean…

The Salon Sandbox

Last but not least… On Friday we sat, chatted and fell in love with stylist Alessandra Saman! With a smile that brightens up the dark El Niño skies, and style that can’t help but make the salon floor her catwalk, we had to dig a little deeper to learn more about this Girl Guru!

Mèche: Where are you from, and how long have you been at Mèche Salon?

Ali: I grew up in Beverly Hills, started my career at Neil George and made the move to Mèche since we opened in 2012!

M: Favorite hair trend of the moment?

A: My favorite hair trend is sexy, messy, rock n’ roll, effortless hair. Like you just rolled out of bed looking HOT! Think Lou Doillon, Freja Beha or Jeanne Damas. BABES!

M: Name your fashion icon of the past and present.

A: My favorite of the past is Yves Saint Laurent and “le smoking tuxedo” HOT, and of course Hedi Slimane (current CD of Saint Laurent) is a genius! I’m also in love with Alessandro Michele for Gucci!!!

Meche’s own Chelsea Belushi was contacted by Refinery29 for the inside scoop on coloring your way to fuller hair! Well, hang on, coloring your way to the illusion of more hair.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.37.06 PM

We all know vitamins such as Viviscal and Nutrafol (Ahem, both sold at Meche!) work miracles, but some of us just have that infantile-fine hair that won’t stay Texas sized no matter how much teasing goes in there. So how do you make your hair look thicker?

Almost immediately after stepping on the red carpet at the 2015 Emmy Awards yesterday, Glamour Magazine online jumped on Giuliana Rancic’s look for the night… and rightfully so!

Giuliana has seen the Meche sister duo, Melissa and Yvonne Brown, as well as Rasanda Rivera for many years. Yvonne, mastering Giuliana’s many color changes, and Melissa and Raz tag teaming up to both lengthen and shorten those glam locks!

Last night, Melissa kept Giuliana’s hair down, but behind her shoulders, complimenting her décolletage skimming dress by Ziad Nakad.

“This woman fights me all the time about having her hair pulled back off her face! The makeup artist, stylist, and I will all agree on the look with her hair pulled back, and the moment I step off set, she pulls it forward!” Melissa laughs, “I had to pin the hair behind her ears for this look!”

Melissa explained how she styled Giuliana’s hair for you to try yourself!

“Giuliana has fine hair, so I spritz’d a pretty generous amount of thickening spray in her towel-dried hair for some extra oomph. I then dried small sections, one at a time, teasing the root as I brought each piece down. I set the curls with the amazing Leonor Greyl Voluforme Spray and a little bit of Oribe Dry Texture. For any fly-aways, the Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie works wonders. Rub a little in your palms and smooth over the finished look. Amazing! I’m relieved she kept her hair behind her ears!”

Colorist, Kari Hill, is featured on Byrdie, where she gave Byrdie Editor, Michelle Scanga, a sun-kissed, tortoiseshell makeover!

Kari is the official celebrity colorist for L’Oreal. The article is geared towards “at home” tips, but of course, to get the look, I’d suggest seeing a professional… and probably making that professional Kari herself. ;)

Check out a few photos from the makeover and read the article in its entirety here!
