, , , , , , , , , ,

Enhancing one’s hair color while staying true to his or her natural hue can be a challenge for some, but Michelle Pugh seems to have it down to a science. Below, Michelle’s client, Kate Boyer, shows off her radiant red locks during a recent photo shoot.

The color is created using the past as inspiration. By referencing childhood pictures of her client, Michelle is able to determine the most natural tones for her. Michelle completed Kate’s color using a combination of base and gloss.

Next she painted Flashlift and Olaplex onto her ends using a balayage technique. Finally she glossed her roots in 8n+7nb+6n and her hairline in 9n+9nb. Tracey advises lifting hair out of the shampoo bowl when rinsing to avoid damaging the freshly colored tips!

Alessandra Saman‘s latest cut shows us that a seemingly subtle trim can totally transform a look. She created texture and volume by simply adding fringe around her client’s face and lifting her length a couple inches. The tousled style is an on trend look that is easy to maintain as well!

Compliments of Color


, , , , , , , , , ,

While a cut can transform the appearance of your face’s shape, your hair color can do wonders for your skin tone. It’s important to choose a hair color that not only appeals to you, but also works well with your complexion. Colorist Heather Cie noticed Mèche manager, Michelle, was being washed out by her hair’s copper tones. By adding blonde highlights and balayage at the base, Heather created a color that complimented her skin tone and gave her baby blues an extra pop!

Is it any wonder that Alissa Tiegen Smith—a noted bangs-cutting expert who employs a strict level of precision in every style she creates—draws a great deal of her inspiration from 1960s style icons like Jane Birkin along with musical acts like Patti Smith and the Talking Heads? Her style is eclectic and fresh, and because she’s got a knack for tailoring it to suit the unique esthetic of each and every one of her clients, it’s placed her among the upper tier of LA’s elite haircutting professionals.

Having gotten her start at Sally Hershberger, Alissa worked at Neil George salon for seven years before Mèche opened its doors in 2012. Over the course of her career, she’s become known for her meticulous attention to detail, which includes not only dry-cutting the hair to ensure the utmost in texture and movement, but sharing with her clients helpful tips and tricks on making the most of their cuts once they leave the salon.

Below, Michael Sparks takes his client’s hair up a notch (and a few inches) by transforming her grown-out lob into a classic bob. While the cut is timeless, the perfectly tousled waves combined with effortless sun-kissed color by Heather Cie give it an edgy, modern kick!
