Meet Our New Stylists: Pam, Ashley, Sarah and Dave.
Pam Smith is a creative chameleon. Besides tending bar in French Quarter haunts and playing music in local punk bands, she has a sharp talent for helping people look great, specializing in fine hair, curly hair and men’s hair cutting and styling. She graduated from Vanguard College of Cosmetology, a Paul Mitchell Partner School in Slidell, where she also participated in the Advanced Academy program.
Ashley Perrino’s passion for hair took root at an early age. Enamored by punk rock’s bright colors and extreme haircuts, she soon took control of styling her friends’ hair. In 2007, Ashley attended Stage One-The Hair School in Lake Charles, exploring and developing her talent. She’s a certified Pravana Vivids colorist, and she also specializes in blowouts, dry-texture cutting, highlights, vintage styles and men’s clipper cuts.
Protecting your hair from the sun is vital to protecting your style! The sun’s harsh rays can not only damage delicate skin but can also dry out your hair. So, no matter if you’re spending vacation days beneath the rays or just enjoying the outdoors around town, finding the right summer-care products for your hair type is a must.
Our own Omar Romero (who is a pro when it comes to educating on hair and specialty products) was recently featured on WWLTV’s The 504, where he sat down with host Sheba Turk to share some tips on managing summer hair and protecting it from the surf, sand and sun.
In a nutshell, Omar says:
> Use a good leave-in, moisturizing conditioner before diving in
> Layer a product with UVB protection over your conditioner
> Detox or clarify your hair to keep it shiny and healthy
> Always use a styling product

Summer Product Must-Haves
With summer in full bloom, you must think about protecting your hair! Just as your skin needs a shield from the sun’s intense rays, so do your strands. Kevin.Murphy offers two great products that provide UV protection.
Staying.Alive: This weightless leave-in conditioner softens hair and gives it flexibility, too! Super-rich in antioxidants, it smoothes frizzy stands, strengthens and adds shine.
Damage.Manager: For instant, weightless heat protection, spray a bit of this on strands before gowing outdoors! You can also apply before heat styling.
So head on out to as many 4th of July celebrations as you can–just make sure to treat your hair first!
