Ari was a new client. She brought me in pictures of Beyoncé’s pixie cut and told me she used to have her hair that short. Its always daunting to cut off so much hair on someone you just meet. Especially when I only have 1 hour and 15 minutes in the middle of a busy Saturday. She was really stoked on it and said she felt more herself. Ari is such a sweetheart and I think the short hair definitely flatters her. Please keep in mind when choosing to make such a big change it is very helpful to us as stylists to know that such a large change is coming as it takes more time. A heads up to the receptionist is always very appreciated. Thank again to the lovely Ari for letting me make such a fun change.

Cutest father son duo
I was lucky enough to have Joel and Elias stop by for a cut last week. I love seeing multiple members of a family. It’s so fun! Always so impressed when kids can sit still for a cut. Thanks again Joel & E!
Oribe signature cut class with Tom Gallagher
Last month the staff at Jau Jou studio was treated to a class taught by creative director for Oribe Tom Gallagher. He flew out from New York to teach us the “Oribe signature cut”. Oribe is arguably most well known for creating hair for Victoria secret models. His celebrity clientele also includes, Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, Anne Hathaway, January Jones ect… The signature cut is basically the Victoria secret model haircut. The first picture was our inspiration for the cut. Followed by pictures of Tom teaching class and a before and after of my model. Megan was lovely enough to be my model for class. I also did an all over color on her hair and added some highlights to brighten everything up. The class was challenging and it was exciting to learn a new way to cut long layers. I’m really happy with the end result. If you are interested in learning more about Oribe, his products, or to see videos of him and his staff at work visit www.oribe.com enjoy!
This is my gorgeous friend/client Kristin Cofer. She is a woman with exceptional style. I love doing Kristin’s bangs! She likes them to be above the brows, rounded & blunt. I will admit I have struggled with them in the past. But I have been doing her hair for a while now and have it down! We also darkened up her color s bit. I was pretty stoked on the final result.

Holiday photo shoot for Modcloth
last year my friend kristin Cofer was working as a photographer for modcloth. I was able to work with her on a photo shoot that was used in their new years campaign. It was super rad to see hair I styled on a website that my friends and I regularly shop! Plus getting to work with friends is the best! thank you to my lovely and talented friend Kristin Cofer for giving me such a great opportunity and taking beautiful pictures of my work.
I DID HAIR FOR AN OAKLAND A’s PLAYER!!!
Many of you may know that I’m a huge A’s fan. I have been trying to figure out how to do hair for some of my favorite players for years. This year I started punishing a couple of them on twitter and repeatedly telling them I should be doing their hair. The day before oakland’s last home stand with the tigers I saw josh Donaldson (3rd baseman for the A’s) ask on twitter where was a good place in Oakland to get his hair cut. I sent him my info and he was able to come in that afternoon. Josh was looking to get a faux hawk for the playoffs. He was super nice. We got to chat about baseball & shows on TLC (you know how much I love my trashy reality shows ;). Josh was even sweet enough to sign a ball for me! Unfortunately the A’s ended up losing the tigers series. They are still ALWest champions and of course the only team I love. Bob Melvin was American League manager of the year and josh reddick won a golden glove. Not bad for a team that was expected to lose 100 games. Can’t wait for next year. Maybe I can add more players to my clientele. Josh reddick, Derek Norris, Brett Anderson, Travis blackley, grant Balfour…..
