We just cant control it!!!! (help)

With these warm days upon us something seems to happen to our hair, and we cant really put our finger on it, ha, who are we kidding we can barely even put our fingers through it!! Its the frizz and craziness that is associated with the humidity that we have to deal with during these New England summers. Don't worry though this wont be like the 1963 movie The Birds, with crazy birds trying to attack your nest. 

We do have a secret weapon and her name is Lissea!!! Shes a tall lengthy thing with a whole lot of control when it comes to those hairy situations.   


smoothing, nourishing
LISSEA smoothing care smooths and nourishes unruly, frizzy hair with natural ingredients that restore hair’s health and radiance.  Natural Alkekenge extract instantly smooths and controls volume and frizz while Avocado oil nourishes and moisturizes.  This smoothing system leaves hair perfectly smooth, shiny and soft.

Lissea is great because it's a system that you can use in the summer when your frizz is out of control but also something that you can use whenever you are using a flat iron or giving yourself a blow out. Lissea with help will maintain natural and unruly hair along with the damage that can worsen our frizz from the years of heat we put to it.

To shave or not to shave
We see a hairstyle come up once or twice a year that makes us go 'huh now wouldn't that be fun to try'! Its a bold and chic statement that has made its way from the red carpets to the pages of Vogue and Glamour. The only thing that stops us is that it involves shaving of a portion of your hair and we aren't sure that we are that dedicated to the fun look.. Rihanna is someone who is famous for wearing this look. She rocks it with her ever famous ombre locks!

We wondered how we could rock this fun rocker chic look without dedicating ourselves to such a drastic change. Than we found the beautiful Heidi Klum with a hair style that almost replicated this amazing look! 
 Though Heidi hasn't dedicated her self to the buzz cut she has created this amazing and just as chic fun fresh style that is easy for mostly anyone to try!! Our style tip for this look is having a french braid that angles down towards the nap of the neck with the excess hair tucked under with a few bobby pins. Finished off with the Rene Furterer Vegetable finishing spray. 
Make sure to grab your best hair guru to assist you with the part, you want a nice clean line! 
The crisp part is crucial in this updated and noncommittal look!

The Fringe with Ferricchia Spring 2014

The trend right now that we love is the platinum blonde! Stars from Michelle Williams to Beyonce have sported these trendy and bold looks. Now we understand that Platinum blonde isn't for everyone and that it can be a leap from the 'safety' zone. But this is a leap that is worth trying, its a fresh start a new you. Heck isn't that what spring is all about, new beginnings. If you aren't a fan of the all over color than the best alternative is doing a platinum ombre! Stars from Jennifer Lopez to Kim Kardashian have rocked these amazing looks! Think of how fun it would be to hold a dinner party with your closest friends and surprising them all with a rockin' platinum look! 


Even the boys are going blonde, Adam Levine just posted this picture (bottom left) to his twitter and social media went crazy!!! Lets get that color on and post your own Adam Levine inspired photo to your social media (after the big reveal of course) and wait till you see the reactions!!!

 If you follow our idea for your blonde coming out party we have the perfect cocktail its called
The French Blonde! This recipe makes one cocktail. 


½ oz. elderflower liqueur, like St. Germain
1 oz. dry gin
2 oz. White Lillet
2 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
A few dashes lemon bitters


Vigorously shake together all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker for at least 30 seconds. Strain into a martini glass.

Today March 20th is not only the first day of spring but it's also National Live Happy Day. With spring a symbol of new growth in our gardens and trees, a cleanup of our closets and homes why shouldn't it be a symbol of growth in ourselves. 
National Live Happy Day is really a day to remind you to put the negativity aside and replace it with positivity.

"Acts Of Happiness, It’s as simple as a hug. A kind word. Helping a neighbor. Holding a door.

Acts of Happiness are small things—with a big impact. They’re every day, thoughtful expressions that others do for us—and that we intentionally do for others.

So, come on! Make someone’s day—and yours—a little brighter."

At the salon we have a wall in the back room that has inspirational and positive quotes, these are important for us because it reminds us every day who we want to be and what we want to strive for.

So what are you going to do, not just today to bring happiness to yourself and to others!
 Again even the smallest of things can change someone’s day.

Talk about a chic rainy day look! We just love the trench paired with her low pony (you'll see our tip below on how to create this look from 3/14/14). Don't let the rain discourage you from looking your best. If you are looking for a quick way to cover up those locks than we recommend using a wide brim hat, pairing it with a jeans a cute oxford and a vest and what rainy day look isn't complete with a pair of Hunter rain boots all we have to say is FABBBB!

With spring upon us it means we can rid our closets of those large puffy coats that cover our cute outfits, the hats that flatten our hair and and the mittens that cover our fresh manicures. We become butterflies shedding our outer shells to reveal the beautiful things we all are.

 Then reality hits and we realize that the over sized coats cover our comfy clothes not cute outfits and who are we kidding, the hat hid all the growth we have been putting off from our last appointment and the gloves come in handy because we all know none of us have been having regular manicures. So spring is not only a time to clean the house but to clean yourself up.

 The question on everyone's mind is "where do we start"? So that's why we are here to help you in creating the perfect most polished spring and summer looks.

Lets start from the top and work our way down:

The trend on the runways this year that we all love is a low pony tail, it's one of those things that you can wear from the office, to that business luncheon and to the PTA.
Its a casual yet refined.

Our tip: is gently move the pony from left to right before securing at the nap, it'll loosen to create the soft frame without losing the shape. 

Another runway favorite of ours is loose waves.
The loose wave is a timeless look that really flatters mostly everyone! You can wear it short or long and its a great look for cocktails at the Top Of The East or a casual lunch with your best girlfriends!

Our Tip: Keep waves random and tousled for a carefree feel, if you pair this look with an ombre, it  give your locks so much depth! 

For these very casual elegant looks we suggest going light on the makeup! Mascara and lips are any easy application that are great for anyone on the go! A natural/ nude lip color can go a long way and will enhance what you already have, if you want to go bold, a great red lip stain will be sure to make you pop! Again keeping the eyes very subtle with a great mascara will give you that runway look!

Now to the nails! A manicure is one of the most easy ways to change your look up. It doesn't take much time and you are sure to wow with a great color! This season the look is white, a white nail will draw slight attention but wears well with anything. If you are looking to get into a color, navy blue! It wears well and looks great with jeans and a leather jacket or a floor length gown for that charity event you have coming up!  These helpful hints are here to get you ready for this coming spring.

The mind of a great artist

As an artist in the hair industry every head of hair is a canvas. Our minds tend to yearn to remold shape and bring brilliant dimensions of color to most heads of hair.

As time goes on the craving for an inner understanding of how hair grows enters our minds. The hair bulb is the source of how hair will look visually. That is why, with a clear understanding, many of us recommend intense nutrients for your scalp. The more someone focuses on keeping a healthy scalp their planted hair bulbs will thrive in a well-balanced environment. Everyone should treat their scalp and then treat their hair separately.

My clients who use a prescriptive regimen of scalp nutrients (scalp oils) and treat their hair with additional weekly treatments (think intense hydrating Shea butter) have thicker, shinier, healthier hair.

If you have not been introduced and need information on how to go about improving the quality of your hair then find an artist or a salon that focuses on how to achieve this for you.
