Veil Of Grace Salon

My client Courtnie has always struggled with thin, short hair.  She has tried for years to grow her hair out but could never seem to get her length past her collar bone.  When she came in for her consultation we went over all the options we could do for her.  We both agreed that it would be best to ease into having length since it was her first time wearing sewn in wefts.  She also wanted a look that was natural for her.

Her hair density was good, which made her a candidate for the NBR hair extensions.  I really wanted to focus on filling in the really short pieces and gaps around her face.  I decided that two rows was best due to blend her short layers.  My assistant and I refreshed her color with a full head of baby lights to brighten her up and cut out any brass she had in her hair.  Her hair extensions were then cut, custom colored and styled to be about 16″ in length.

Are you tired of waiting for your hair to grow? Why wait when you could have the hair you always wanted in less than 4 hours.  To get started on your Natural Beaded Rows Extensions fill out the link below.

Aubrianne contacted me after seeing a few of my client’s NBR transformations on social media. With a little bit more research on the technique, she was ready to book! After a 15 minute phone consultation, her future appointment was booked on my schedule and she was on her way to having the hair of her dreams.

After her initial consultation we decided to move her hair color in the direction of a more “lived-in” color. This allowed for a more natural regrowth but still kept her blonde color really bright. In order to achieve the thickness she desired, two rows of 18″ extensions were installed.  I cut a few inches off the the length to something that was a bit more manageable and comfortable for her!

Aubrianne has had long hair before, but never long and thick hair. The two rows gave her the hair she always wanted! We were so happy with the end results, and I am looking forward to seeing her in 8 weeks for her move up appointment.  To get started on your Natural Beaded Rows Extensions fill out the link below.

My recent client Nicole took the time to  give you the most comprehensive guide to Natural Beaded Rows hair extensions I have ever seen.  No stranger to reviewing products on her blog, www.nicole-kelly.com, Kelly answers all the questions she has received since transforming her hair with NBR.  Check out what she had to say below.

What are NBR Extensions?
NBR stands for Natural Beaded Rows. Directly from the NBR website “The hair extensions are placed in rows in the hair by creating a “track” with an exclusive bead and string technique. Wefts are then placed on the track and sewn in.” There is absolutely no glue or heat used in this method so the damage to your natural hair is very minimal. “

What brand are your extensions?
Boyhme. Samantha uses Hand Tied Wefts. What is so great about these wefts are that they are super thin and can lay very flat to the head.

Are your extensions sewn in?
Yes, Hand Tied Wefts are meant to be sewn in. The technique that Samatha uses is called NBR Extensions where the wefts are added to your hair by beading and then hand-tying the wefts to your natural hair.

How much does it cost?
This is dependent on your hair goals and natural hair, how many rows you get, how much hair is used, the color you want, etc. 

Can you workout / pull your hair up with these extensions?
Yes! All NBR clients will receive a take home care guide for their extensions. I pull my hair into a bun, ponytail, braids, etc all of the time! The way they tie them into your natural hair line and smudge the color makes it to where you can’t see the extensions when styling! I’m obsessed with mine in braids!  When styling, they don’t recommend that you pull the hair directly back in the direction that the rows are sewn in, either do a high or low pony tail.

Do they damage your hair?
I think when you do anything unnatural to your hair, it will damage it over time. This is the LEAST damaging technique for hair extensions, and I have seen very little damage to my hair. The key is to take care of your extensions properly. All care details will be in your take home NBR hair care guide. 

What is the upkeep like? Are they hard to wash? How often do you wash?
The upkeep isn’t as bad as I thought it might be! A lot of it depends on how may rows and wefts you have installed. They seemed a bit heavy at first until my head got used to them. It obviously takes way more time to dry them than it does without extensions, but then I only wash my hair once a week! Who doesn’t love a good dry shampoo!? I have found it easiest to let the hair air dry about 80% and then blow-dry and style.

How long does it take to get in and out?
First time clients who are receiving custom color on their own hair, having the extensions colored and installed all in the same day can expect to spend 4 – 5 hours in the salon. If you are just coming back for your bump up appointments (extension re-install only) this can be 1.5 – 2.5 hours.
The removal of the extensions can take as little as 5 minutes.

I hope you enjoyed this comprehensive guide to Natural Beaded Rows hair extensions.  A special thank you to Nicole for taking the time to provide this wonderful information.  If you would like to read more from Nicole, check out her blog at www.nicole-kelly.com.  To get started on your Natural Beaded Rows Extensions fill out the link below.

I had a new hair extension client come into the salon this past week who was wearing an alternative extension method known as “sewn in”.  Unfortunately with this method, the client had a number of problems: damage to the integrity of her natural hair, low quality hair extension product that was falling apart and worst of all the hair extensions did NOT blend into her own hair!  With so many problems, I was shocked when I heard what the client had paid. All stylists know that hair extensions are a serious investment for clients, so it really bothers me when I see such poor service.

To show you what a certified NBR (Natural Beaded Rows) hair extension specialist can do to help you achieve your hair goals, check out the photos below!  As you can see in the photo on the left the “sewn in” client’s hair extension wefts were not secured properly and not custom colored to match the client’s natural hair.

When you compare the “sewn in” client on the left to the NBR client pictured on the right, the difference is clear!  The NBR hair extension wefts are securely attached, with no damage the natural hair, and the custom color blend still looks seamless after nine weeks of growth.

If this is your first time, or your 117th time having your hair professionally colored, chances are you don’t properly know how to maintain your color-treated hair.  Don’t worry I’m not trying to be mean, I am here to help you save money! We all know that a salon visit can be an investment, or as our husbands like to say “expensive”; so do yourself a favor and learn how to protect that investment!

Proper maintenance will not only keep your hair color vibrant, as your salon hairstylist intended, but also extend the life of your hair color.  Below I have outlined five of the absolute best suggestions you’ll need to keep your hair looking fabulous weeks after your hair appointment.

1. Wait at least 72 hours after coloring to shampoo your hair.  For those of us that aren’t too keen on math that’s 3 days!  The reason for this, without boring you with a bunch of hair science, is that your hair cuticle is open during color treatment (to accept the color) and can take up to three days to close.  If you shower too soon after your appointment, you are quite literally flushing money down the drain!

2. Wash your hair less often and rinse with cooler water.  Okay, I get it, a cold shower doesn’t sound relaxing.  Believe me I love a hot shower as much as you do but it isn’t good for your color-treated hair.  Don’t kill the messenger here but your hair cuticles open in hot water and release that precious color you invested in.  Remember what I said about flushing money down the drain? If your taking a hot shower every night, we will see you back in the salon sooner than you think 😉  My advice, wash with warm (not hot) water and rinse with cooler water.

3. Use a salon quality shampoo and conditioner.  I know what you are thinking, “of course she is going to try and sell me expensive salon products.”  The reason your hair stylist suggest buying salon quality products (like EVO!) is because they are guaranteed free of sulfates, parabens, dea, tea and proplyene glycol.  These harmful chemicals are foaming detergents found in most mass produced shampoos and conditioners to “clean your hair”. The problem is these chemicals strip your hair of it’s essential natural oils, moisture and color.  Leaving your ends dry and brittle and your scalp greasy as a result of the body over producing additional oil to compensate for the loss.

4. Limit sun exposure and avoid chlorine.  Wow, first cold showers and now no summertime dips in the pool!  I know this suggestion is going to be one of the hardest ones to follow but it is just as important.  UV exposure coupled with heat can cause your hair color to lighten and fade. My advice, wear a really cute hat or use a heat protectant leave-in treatment if your hats aren’t that cute 😉  As far as the pool goes, chlorine is a bleaching agent that will strip your hair color; turning a platinum blonde into a mint green and a dimensional brunette into a dull brown. If your love for the water is too strong to avoid, lather conditioner into your wet hair before hitting the pool.  This will create a much needed barrier to the harmful effects of the chlorine.

5. Trim your hair regularly.  Yes in fact a haircut can actually help you maintain your color.  The truth is dead ends don’t hold color, so why are you waiting so long to have them removed.  I highly recommend that you schedule to have those colorless ends trimmed every 6 – 8 weeks with your hairstylist.

Well I hope these five suggestions will help you protect your color treated hair, or at the very least get you thinking about wearing a hat at the pool haha.  If you read this article completely, first of all, thank you.  I’m currently spending my Saturday writing this article in the brief amount of time my two girls are napping!  Instead of binge watching “Dead To Me” on Netflix, like I really want to, I’m sharing how you can save money at the salon!  If your looking for more professional hairstylist tips make an appointment with your Veil Of Grace Hairstylist today.

Lindsay has been trying to grow out her hair for her wedding in 2019! She has been a regular client of Samantha at Veil Of Grace Salon. While she was getting her hair done one day, she saw another client getting their NBR extensions installed.  She quickly asked to get hers that day! Soon enough, Samantha had Lindsay in her chair for color matching consultation.

After consulting about her dream hair, Lindsay decided to go for it!  She really wanted that gorgeous Pinterest worthy hair you always see. After custom coloring three different hand-tied weft colors, Samantha installed two full rows of Natural Beaded Rows. Her extensions were 22″ long. Can you say Mermaid!? Or better yet, Rapunzel from the movie Tangled! And how incredible doe she look with her new fabulously long hair?

Jessica found Samantha while searching on Yelp!  How awesome is that.  After coming across Veil Of Grace’s NBR client photos, Jessica had to know more about the process of Natural Beaded Rows. She was used to wearing tape in extensions but hated that the fact that she could never wear her hair up at the gym because the visibility of them.

Jessica decided a bit more research was in order and started to follow Samantha’s instagram page (@samantha.veilofgrace) . Once she saw a video of how an NBR client’s hair looked when separated, without any sign of the extension wefts, she was sold!  After a quick consult over the phone, Jessica visited Samantha at Veil Of Grace salon so Samantha could asses her hair in person.  Jessica had a natural s-wave pattern and curly texture to her hair.  Determining the natural pattern and texture of a client’s hair is extremely important when deciding on the perfect hair extension product.  Without matching properly, the hair extensions will not blend seamlessly.

In order to emulate Jessica’s natural curls,  Samantha decided to install a mix of a body wave hair weft with a curly s-wave pattern hair weft.  The great part about the extensions is they can also be styled straight.  So now Jessica has options; to rock her natural curly hair or smooth everything out for a sleek look.  Check out her before and after photos below!

Chelsea reached out to Samantha with her interest in the NBR Extension Method.  She had some experience wearing tape in extensions but was on the search to find a better way to add the thickness and length she desired.

Chelsea came to Samantha with her own natural hair.  She had had highlights in the past, but everything was grown out by the time she was seen at Veil Of Grace Salon.  Samantha decided it was a good time to refresh her natural hair color. Virginal hair can tend to be a bit dull and it was important that the fresh hair extension’s color seamlessly blend into Chelsea’s hair.  To achieve this blend, Samantha applied the tiniest of baby-lights with a semi permanent glaze all over her hair.  This technique will allow a natural grow out without any harsh lines of demarcation.  The hair extensions were then custom colored to help blend flawlessly with her new hair color.

Chelsea was stunning! She absolutely loved her new hair.  Pictured below are two rows of 18″ hand tied wefts.  To get started on your Natural Beaded Rows Extensions fill out the link below. Samantha can’t wait to meet you and give you the hair of your dreams!

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!

Jen reached out to Samantha, Veil Of Grace Owner, last year with a growing interest in NBR Extensions.  Jen used to wear tape-in extensions, however, she struggled with the extensions showing.  This was especially a problem when she put her hair up into a ponytail and as her natural hair grew out.

Knowing there had to be a better hair extension method available, Jen began her search on Instagram of course!  Serendipitously Jen found Samantha (@samantha.veilofgrace) and begin to follow Samantha’s NBR training progress.  When Samantha announced that she was ready to take new NBR hair extension clients, she jumped at the opportunity to try them out.  Jen wanted to make a dramatic statement with a color, length and volume.  As you can see in the photos below, Samantha gave her the most gorgeous mermaid hair out there!  Samantha installed two rows of 22″ hand tied wefts, while darkening her grown out blonde balayage for winter.

When Jen first came to Samantha her hair was a bit damaged from being previously lightened throughout the past year.  So this was her time to take a break and enjoy long brunette hair with the NBR hair extension method.  I hope you enjoy these beautiful before and after photos below.

I can’t believe The Veil Of Grace Salon has been open a year!  It really seems like yesterday my husband and I visited the location on a whim and called the realtor that day about the listing.   As you can see from the before pictures it certainly took some creative imagination to turn a previous driving school office into a modern hair salon.  Yes, you did read that correctly, the salon used to be a driving school haha.  It’s bittersweet to see these photos; like looking back at your yearbook when you were in that awkward stage!  Don’t worry we all have those photos.  It’s those awkward times that really make us appreciate where we have come from.

"The Veil Of Grace Driving School"

So, what have I learned in the first year as a salon owner?  The most important lesson I’ve learned is listen to your stylists and clients!  Ultimately stylists need an efficient work space and clients expect a memorable experience.  I set out to accomplish both of these goals by building a beautiful modern salon I could be proud of and one I know both stylists and clients would appreciate.  The positive feedback I have received this year has been incredible.  Definitely makes all the hard work feel worth it!

The Veil Of Grace Salon

As the Veil Of Grace Salon celebrates its first year I would be remiss not to thank all the people involved.  First and foremost my supportive husband.  This past year has been an absolute whirlwind of new challenges with the birth of our first child and the opening of our first brick and mortar location.  What were we thinking haha!  I know this is cliche but I literally couldn’t, or more honestly wouldn’t have opened the salon without your encouragement, guidance and perseverance.

I also would like to thank the Veil Of Grace Manager Sydney for your inspiring work ethic and unwavering passion for customer service.  I attribute every positive review we have received this past year to you!  You are the reason clients and brides alike have recommended Veil Of Grace.  I cannot thank you enough for the time and energy you have invested in creating the Veil Of Grace experience.

Lastly, but certainly not least, a special thank you to all the Veil Of Grace Salon Stylists.  Every single one of you took a chance on me and I will never forget that.  I am completely humbled by your faith in me and look forward to helping you grow as artists in the years to come!

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!

Ever curious as to what NBR hair extensions could do for you!? Samantha’s client was looking to add some thickness and a bit of extra length to her fine straight hair. With NBR, the most natural hair extension method out there, there is NO DAMAGE, NO GLUE, and NO HEAT that is applied to her hair. With minimal points of contact and a hand sewn base the client is able to have the hair of her dreams.  In as little as three hours she received a fresh new hair color, custom colored hair extensions and hand sewn one row installed.  The pictures don’t lie; the client walked out looking the best she has ever felt!

I can probably guess you have never heard of EVO Hair products until now.  Why, because honestly neither had I until about two years ago and I live and breathe the hair industry.  Meaning I’m spending all day behind the chair and all night on instagram.  Which is exactly how I found this amazing salon exclusive product line out of Australia.

When Veil Of Grace Salon was just an idea scribbled on some loose computer paper, I decided if this dream was every going to be a reality I needed to find an all-natural and unique salon exclusive hair product line.  Instagram must have been listening to me blabber on and on about needing to find this line because an EVO Hair ad showed up in my newsfeed not long after.  Before the days of advanced ad targeting I believe this moment would have been called “fate” haha.  Thanks Zuckerberg for spying on me, it actually helped me this time, so I appreciate the assist on this one!

So just what about EVO Hair convinced me that this was the perfect product line for my new salon.  For starters, I really appreciated their honest respect for not only their consumer’s health but the health of the environment.  EVO proudly offers only products that are sulphate, paraben, dea, tea and propylene glycol free.  If your wondering if these things are bad, they definitely are.  Not only are these chemicals bad for your hair and scalp health but their also not very environmentally friendly.  I am certainly not the greenest human on the planet but I try where I can and encourage you to do the same.

Sorry if I am boring you with just how awesome EVO’s mission to be an environmentally conscious manufacture is but they not only omit harmful ingredients but also use 100% recycled packaging and promotional materials.  I’m sure Captain Planet would be proud!  Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, Heart…Go Planet!  If you didn’t get that reference, I’m sorry you must not be a 90’s kid.

Alright, enough of me congratulating myself on finding EVO.  Let’s get into the product line and what it has to offer you!  Veil Of Grace Salon carries the entire EVO Hair product line, including but not limited to the following categories: Face, Body, Curl, Fabuloso, Fabuloso Pro, Hydrate, Repair, Smooth, Volume and Style.  While some categories are fairly self-explanatory, I would like to touch on the Fabuloso and Fabuloso Pro products.

Evo Fabuloso are the coolest color enhancing conditioners on the market.  Available in seven shades, these conditioners can revive your color in between salon visits by boosting the intensity and shine.  As a hairstylist you would think I get my hair done all the time right.  I wish haha, but these conditioners at least make me feel like I do!  When I’m feeling a bit faded I use the Fabuloso to add a much needed color boost in under 3 minutes.

Now if you love the idea of the Fabuloso, the Fabuloso Pro takes the concept one step further.  Where the Fabuloso is limited to seven shades, the Fabuloso Pro has an unlimited number of color shades.  At the Veil Of Grace Salon your hairstylist can formulate your specific color by adding pigments to conditioner base.  How awesome is that!  You can actually take home a bottle of the your unique color to keep your hair looking its absolute best between salon visits.

For more information on EVO Hair products please ask your stylists to try something new on your hair today!

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.
