If you go to a new colorist of any reputation, you should expect a thorough consultation. A consultation is a guided interview that should help you both get to the best understanding of what you would like, and what is attainable.

So when you talk to your colorist, honesty is truly the best policy. We work with a variety of chemicals that create different reactions. Sometimes these chemicals have adverse reactions when mixed, and the only way your colorist will know if they are present is for you to tell them. The simplest way to talk about your “Hair History” is to work backward in months. Hair grows on the average one-half inch per month. If your hair is 6 inches long, the ends are 1 year old.  If it 12 inches long it is 2 years old. Everything that you do and live through exists in that hair. If you went blonde last year but put a box on it to go back to your natural, the blonde is still there, just hidden.  f you used any sort of box or shampoo that altered your color enough for you see “roots” growing out, it is chemically affected, and you must tell your colorist everything that has affected your hair.

A major shift has occurred where many clients want to use “natural” products. This is the worst type of hair color to combine with professional hair color, and must be removed from the hair if possible. Anything listed as a henna or vegetable dye will negatively react with professional salon color.

So what could happen if you do not tell your colorist everything? If there is artificial color on your ends, the new growth may lift perfectly to a blonde, but your ends may permanently stay orange. Your hair may experience an exothermic reaction, where the salon lightener interacts with a metallic salt and your hair can “melt” into cotton candy. The many applications of home color, performed roots to ends every month may have so much build-up it won’t’ budge past red without frying the hair.

Understanding the chemical actions of color and lightener are your colorist’s job, but you are the only witness to your hair’s history. If you share it with them, they will be able to get you to the best possible, healthiest result.

Booth Rental is real.  It is an aspect of the industry that now dominants the business model and is not going away any time soon.  I have owned my commission based salon for almost 16 years, and have spawned well over 11 salons/booth renter’s suites in the Tampa Bay area.  As much is it hurts to see a senior level stylist leave, it also makes me proud that my stylists have the skill to manage themselves and have the gumption to do their own thing.  Unfortunately, historically the end of the relationship between myself and the stylist ends abruptly and badly.  They set up the salon/booth in secrecy and then finish the day with a letter or quick, I’m outta here speech.  Then I’m unfriended on Facebook.  No one says, “thanks for the clients” or “you were an inspirational boss”, just “I deserve all the money” or “he’s been profiting off me for years”.  No one seems to remember that I hired them from school, trained them and built their books, gave them great commission, health and life insurance, paid vacation and bonuses.  It always has ended with resentment on both sides.

Well, I’m trying to change this behavior, and hopefully change the industry.

Recently I discovered that 2 senior stylists were planning to move on.  We had a discussion and came to a realization that they didn’t dislike working here, it was just a part of the maturation process.  We came to agreements, and they stayed on for for about 3 weeks longer while their buildout finished.  It was amicable and open, with no hard feelings.  I’ve made a few decisions on how I am going to develop my business, and I’ve learned a lot.

We will be working together in the future and I hope them the best.  I’ll be posting more about this subject as it develops.

For current clients that are looking to follow these stylists, I am asking you to fill out an “exit interview” to get their information.  I am also offering a great promotion if you are interested in staying at Tribeca!  Just follow the link below.

At Tribeca I have trained our colorists to always try to color hair in a damage free manner.  To that end, we have a basic rule, do not use alkali color unless it is deemed necessary.  Usually this means that alkali color is used for resistant gray hair, blonding or increasing vibrancy.  What is alkali color?  Alkali color is any color with a pH higher than 7 (water)  The higher the number up to 14 is it’s alkalinity, and the more alkaline a substance is, the more it is caustic to organic substances.  In the case of hair, it allows the cortex and cuticle to swell and expand so that your natural color may be removed (blonding) and artificial color put into the hair.  Once ammonia is introduced to the hair, along with peroxide, oxidation occurs.  Oxidation breaks down the natural pigments in your hair so you appear lighter and brighter.  This chemical reaction PERMANENTLY alters your hair, and some damage occurs.  One pass of alkaline color is fine, but it is the successive passes that cause more and more damage.

So when we have a client sit in our chair, we discuss using non alkaline colors when it isn’t necessary.  Many times we use the term permanent versus demi permanent color and many clients wonder why wouldn’t you want the color to be permanent?  So to explain, both permanent and demi permanent colors have the same color molecules with the same longevity and retention.  Here’s the difference: permanent color PERMANENTLY changes your own hair.  Demi permenent cannot alter your own base color.  So don’t worry about how long a color may last, it is the permanent alteration of your own hair you should consider.  Hopefully this clears up any confusion!

I have lived all over and had the opportunity to study under many of the greats in the industry.  After almost 14 years I have finally come home to share my knowledge with my home town.  It has most certainly been an adjustment getting used to the slower pace and not being stressed out by work or day to day life.  I will always love New York, I went to school and apprenticed in the city.  It is also where I honed my craft with two of the masters in the industry.  I worked professionally for 12 years,  and have a wonderful clientele in Manhattan.  Los angels was an adjustment and I worked behind the chair but also truly mastered my education skills. Teaching with the greats and helping young hairdressers to grow, after 3 1/2 years I decided I wanted to moved back to my roots to my family and heritage.  I am adjusting well and looking forward to time spend with family and continuing to make people feel and look beautiful.

As most of you know we have an intense apprentice program known as “The Residency”.  Our new hires go through a year long hands on training program before they get onto the floor as stylists. For the past 7 years no one was hired just as a stylist, because I wanted to maintain quality control over all of our services. This has created a great educational culture in the salon, but it is a salon of young vibrant stylists, and they are still building upon their experiences.
Recently I have been approached by a veteran stylist that has been doing hair for over 15 years and has worked at celebrity salons like Ted Gibson, Nick Arrojo and Chaz Dean. With a resume like this, how could I refuse?
So I am creating the GUEST ARTIST program at Tribeca. These Guest Artists are specialists with vast experience. The first addition is Rachel Rodriguez. She has been featured on the real L word, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and has styled many celebrities, including Natalie Portman and the Jonas Brothers.
She is a cutter only and will be referring you to our in house colorists for all of your color work. You can check her out on our website.

She will begin working with us early January, so call soon to book your appointments!
