A new fall hairstyle

A new fall hairstyle

Looking for a new fall hairstyle? It's time to fall in love with your hair! Get it, ha…? Look no further!

We had the Lovely Mich into the salon to do a fun tutorial for fashion hair and for workout hair! Check out what she had to say!

Located in the heart of Gastown, The House of Blond is a definite go-to for your hair, with owner Sarah Braim as a hair goddess! My hair is like my security blanket, I cannot stress how choosey I am when it comes to who styles and cuts my hair….luckily I found the perfect person! I feel safe to say, I fully trust her when it comes to cutting and styling! I basically leave her studio with hair from the Victoria Secrete runway; all blown out, perfect amount of waves and perfect loose curls.

The studio: walk into a beautiful salon, with exposed brick, great music playing, huge windows with ocean / mountain views; straight away you are at ease and feel right at home. The experience at House of Blond is one of a kind. There is an essence of exclusivity that can only be fully experienced once you’re sitting in the chair, while Sarah is working her magic with your hair!

It is undeniable how much passion Sarah has for her salon, co-workers, clients and job. Oh..  did I mention she has a photo room set up, to take photos of your hair style when completed?!

My theory is to surround myself with passionate, driven, knowledgeable women who are unleashing their #girlboss side, hence this beautiful collaboration.

Quick Q&A with Owner Sarah Braim

Q: What are your favorite products to use, on yourself/ clients :
SB: I am a long time lover of Kevin Murphy styling products for my clients and for me personally.  I find ethically it’s a easy decision to support his line. Sulphate free parabon free bio-compatible packaging and of course non animal testing.  We have great results for styling and long term care with the ingredients. Clients constantly tell me the notice a difference in the how their hair moves and feeling with this line so we love it!

Q: How long you have been styling hair
SB: 17 years this November!

Q:In one sentence why you love what you do
SB: It’s a science with a lot of creative skill . I connect with both sides!

Always a pleasure to have the lovely Chelsea in the salon to get her ready for her next event to just teaching her some fun new tricks with her hair! Lets take a look and she what she had to say!

Who doesn’t love to be pampered every now and again… I know I do! Yesterday I got to spend my morning with the girls at The House of Blond   getting my hair washed, blow dried and set in curls. I had the most relaxing experience at the salon sitting and relaxing with a hot cup of tea, having my hair done and looking out at the amazing ocean view.

I loved the Kevin Murphy products that she used through out the whole process. They made my hair feel softer, lighter and I walked away smelling like lavender, orange peel and a summer vacation all in one. Another really cool trick I learned was using the Kevin Murphy hair rollers to set the curls. This extra step allowed the curls to cool off and last far longer than usual.

I had such an amazing experience at The House of Blond, and want to thank Vanessa and Sarah for making me feel so glam and ready to take on the world! If you live in Vancouver or even just passing through, I would highly recommend going to visit the girls, they will make you feel new again!
