Hey Coachella! We miss you!
By Hairroin LA’s Angela + Miriam
Miriam and I (Angela) teamed up with Joico and headed out to the desert this past weekend for some exciting Coachella kick-off festivities. We held a braid booth at the Bisous Magazine Party (#BisousPamperLounge) and the Revolve Clothing Party (#revolvefestival) over the first Coachella weekend styling some fabulous ladies and gentlemen, from models, fashion bloggers, to all around style/beauty influencers.
It was so much fun creating festival hairstyles using Joico’s Instatint, their new temporary hair color sprays. They come in five vibrant shades- Sapphire Blue, Mermaid Blue, Orchid, Pink, and Fiery Coral.
Introducing R+Co’s New Products
By Hairroin LA’s Crystal Betke
R + Co has 4 new products and I can’t tell you how excited I am about them! I will be breaking them down for you here. All formulated without parabens and sulfates, vegan, cruelty and gluten free.
1. Oblivion Clarifying Shampoo
This product is a product that everyone should have in their shower. It is a color safe clarifying shampoo so you don’t have to worry about it stripping your color and it’s gentle enough to use multiple times throughout the week if you shampoo often. Why should you be using a clarifying shampoo?

After MANY requests from our amazing stylists, we are happy to say that Hairroin NYC now carries Davines MELU Hair Shield! I know…it seems a bit corny that we are that excited over a product, especially one that is a super behind the scenes kind of guy, but like for real this stuff is the ish. It provides excellent heat protection on both damp and dry hair while being completely weightless at the same time. So often our fine hair clients are struggling with wanting to style their hair (esp with hot tools) and are hesistant on using

My weekend at the Bronner Bros International Beauty Show
Hairroin NYC’s Artistic Director Luis Payne
A few weekends ago I was so honored to be invited by Sebastian Professional to partake in The Bronner Brothers Hair show in Atlanta, GA. There I was able to showcase my styling skills in addition to the impact of a fantastic product line Sebastian Professional. I was also happy to showcase Sebastian’s Cellophanes; A semi permanent translucent color gloss that seals in natural moisture, delivers high shine, and seals down the cuticle with surface color.
Take a look at some of the before and afters I did. In
She’s blu daba de daba da By Janine Jarman
Ok so how this time I finally “blew” myself away with Apphia’s color. It all started with the fact that I wanted to see more transition from the deep blue root to the bright white blue “”Elsa dress” ends. It’s not what I did but what I didn’t do this time. First pre breach the root to pale yellow. So the blue doesn’t compete with any yellow orange tones thus making it green (blue +yellow=green). Balayage the ends and mid shaft with 20 vol and Free Lights bleach. Making sure to keep it

by Hairroin NYC’s Stylist Tara Angley
Can there be such a thing as a Color/Keratin treatment safe Clarifying shampoo?! CLARIFYING. Ok, wait…what?
The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo by Oribe happens to be just that. This cruelty/gluten free, vegan, gem of a product, also happens to be free of parabens, sulfates and sodium chloride. Instead, Volcanic Ash is used to power the detoxifying mousse which does a magnificent job of polishing away any dirt, oil and product buildup without stripping your color or keratin treatment. Oribe recommends using this, paired with its conditioning counterpart, once a week. When

‘Tis the season….for Static cling/frizz that is!
I don’t know how it rolls over on the West Coast, but here on the East Coast, the temperature drops and the dryness in the air goes up. Along with that comes challenges for both the client at home and stylist behind the chair. Nothing is more annoying then trying to style your hair and just when you have it right and you brush through it one last time, the static takes hold and you look like you just stuck your finger in a socket
