“Stylist: Buddy Porter

What to ask for: A long, blunt cut with no layering.

Long hair gets a fresh update this season with a blunt, one-length look. Porter notes that this style is very low maintenance and can work on any texture, however those with very thick or curly hair will benefit from removing some weight with invisible layers. However, heed his advice: “Reserve the weight removal if necessary, but keep the length as blunt as possible.” He also notes that a dry cutting technique will yield the best results, and to remind your stylist not to add any layers — even a few changes the modern look.

To style, simply run a curling iron or flat iron over strands to define your natural texture and, if desired, add more dramatic bends. “This gives the hair some shape and makes it look effortless,” he says.”

What to ask for: A mid-length shag with long bangs and seamless layers.

Another variation on the shag: long, messy bangs “that that taper out and rest over the eyes, and a length [that’s] a couple inches below the collarbone,” Porter says.

Porter notes that this cut is best for hair with a soft, natural wave or a light curl.”Having bangs like this can be tricky to style at home if your hair is too straight or too curly,” he explains. When styling, Porter suggests drying the bangs into place (you can use a round brush or diffuser), then spraying the lengths with Oribe’s Apres Beach Spray, scrunching, and air-drying.

What to ask for: A one-length bob with tons of well-blended layering.

Looking for the freshest way to wear a bob this fall? Look no further. “This is a box bob with texturized layers,” Porter told us.”The trick here is that the layers are cut with deep notching to create movement and a nice blend.” This sounds really technical, but say it to your stylist, and he’ll know what to do. (If he or she doesn’t, run.) Above all else, “make sure they don’t use a razor or thinning scissors,” Porter says, which will disrupt the one-length ends.

This style works on straight to wavy hair, and is best styled by creating light bends with a curling or flat iron. Wave the hair in opposite directions, Porter says, then shake it all out and finish with Leonor Greyl’s Eclat Nature styling cream to break it up.”

The Red Carpet Wrap-Up🔥

I know, I know… The red carpet at the Oscars was basically a Mèche clientele catwalk as per usual, but come on… This year was poppin’ off! From Chrissy Teigen and her baby bump, to Charlize literally slaying the entire show; we were glued to the tube all night watching our favorites light up the LA night sky.

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.

Lily_01_1702349a.jpg

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…
