We were so lucky to be able to host Salt Society for a melting and advanced balayage demo class at Veil Of Grace Salon this past December.  Mish from Salt Society was a great educator and the sweetest person ever!  We luckily found a model who came in with natural (virgin) brunette hair.  Since she was only 15 years old, we decided on a very natural, soft balayage that would be super low maintenance for her.  Read inexpensive to keep up haha.

Mish showed our salon hairstylists different angle techniques and certain key areas on the head to place our hand painting.  Throughout the class she went over her favorite toners and how to do the perfect color melt at the roots into a toner at the ends of a client’s hair.  This techniques gets rid of any harsh lines and creates a seamless color blend.  Check out below some before and afters of our model from our class below!

Throughout this past year, we have had great results carrying EVO hair products.  Not only do our clients love the super green product line, but just as important, our stylist do as well!  With every product sold, the Veil Of Grace Salon earns educational points to use on continuing education classes.  These interactive demos are a great way for the stylists to keep up with current trends in the hair world.

Just recently we had a representative from EVO travel from Costa Mesa, CA to teach a hair cutting class apply titled “Commit to the Chop.”  We learned two signature haircuts developed from the top EVO hairstylists from Australia.  Continuing education is the absolute key to success as a stylist and a salon.  At Veil Of Grace, we make sure to push ourselves to explore new techniques, styles and products.  Why would we go to all the trouble?  For you of course!  We want to pass our knowledge along to you, so that your hair isn’t so 2018 haha.  If your looking to spice up your haircut, ask your stylists about what she learned at this great class.  We look forward to seeing in the salon soon!

Veil Of Grace Salon was proud to host Ashlee Norman for a two day intensive education course this past month.  As a Santa Clarita native, Ashlee Norman was beyond excited to teach her lock stitch foilyage and razor cutting hair techniques to her local peers.  Not to mention, as a new mom, it’s always nice to work close to home!

Boasting over 100,000 social media followers, Ashlee Norman has developed a significant following with her technical approach to color theory and technique.  As an independent educator, she regularly travels across the United States and Canada to share her knowledge.  So it was quite a treat to have her expertise and hands on guidance in the salon.

The lock stitch foilayage class taught our stylists a coloring technique that marries a baby light and  diffused painted ends. We learned foil placement, practiced with clay lightener, and toning techniques to help achieve the perfect color melt.

Ashlee’s razor and scissor cutting class showed us how to achieve the same haircut with two very different cutting tools.  One with a straight edge razor and the other with our scissors.  Both looks helped produce texture in the hair while creating a diffused soft line instead of a blunt hair cut.  Overall the class was a success and the Veil Of Grace Salon Stylists will continue to keep learning and perfecting their craft. We hope to see you in the salon soon!

What are NBR Hair Extensions and what makes them so special?  NBR, or Natural Beaded Row Hair Extensions are a unique hair extension method that does less damage to your natural hair than traditional tape or glue installation methods.  This hand-tied installation method hides the hair extensions flawlessly while still ensuring that they never slip out!

This Fall, Veil Of Grace Salon Stylists will be attending BMSCon3, the third annual Big Money Stylist Convention, where they will learn this incredible hair extension technique.  During the convention each stylist will receive hands on training and graduate with an NBR Level 1 Certification.
Veil Of Grace Salon Owner, Samantha, has also been selected to attend the BMS Intensive Course.  This exclusive two day event in Laguna Beach, CA is limited to 15 hair stylist per class.  Upon completion of this course, Samantha will be an Certified NBR Level 2 Specialist.
