Not too white but not too golden,… you know, the BEIGE CRAZE!

We have the perfect person in the salon to give you the  hottest colour of the season at Salon Jie - Matty Leblanc.  Matty taught colour all over the blondest CITIES: LA, San Francisco, and Las Vegas for Regis Corporation as creative director and educator. What better places in North America could there be to teach colourists all about blondes?!!!

Here is what Matty had to say about the BEIGE CRAZE:

"It's going to be the NEW FALL STATEMENT- beige blonde! Even though the weather is getting cooler, it doesn't mean your colour needs to fade. A perfect way to keep your blonde vibrant, but will give you that change you're looking for is to soften those highlights by toning them down a level with a shiny, creamy beige hue. It's the perfect way to bring your hair back to life after a summer of sun-fun!  Your beige blonde colouring will saturate the hair with vibrant pigments, bringing that radiant shine back into your luscious locks AND creating more volume. It's the perfect colour to go with all the tonal fashion colours for fall." -Matty Leblanc


It's hot out! It's our kind of hot, and you know what I am saying if you're a Torontian. You still have one wedding and about 3 more functions before we kiss this gorgeous weather goodbye. Are you really going to wear your hair down… AGAIN?  Our winter months give us plenty of time to use our hair functionally.  JiE insists that hair should follow form and function with the calendar months especially in Canada.  "Take advantage of the season by using the environment to help style the hair.  Humidity can be your friend if you play it smart." says JiE.

Here are a few favourite styles to try, keep that hair off your back and show your neck line:

It's that time when we continuously look at the calendar and are counting the days towards the last day of summer.  A month and a few weeks are left to let our hair down and commit ourselves to a couple more options on the list with warm days ahead.  Go crazy,  get wild, and let it out!  It's before all those long papers start piling in from school, or the new seasons start for trade shows and sports, or, we are trying to squeeze in a couple more weekends up at the cottage.  Whatever you're trying to forget before looking ahead or having that moment to leave behind, this time in the summer is the best time  to focus on you!  Do that "thang" you always wanted - do that "thang" to your hair!

At Salon JiE, we pride ourselves on pushing individuals to create their own unique identity  with your hair.  Don't be a clone from a tv show, YouTube, or Instagram page.  Stand out and be different by taking the time to choose a look that would accentuate your features. Why look like someone else? Here are a couple of ideas for your hair style that we know will free yourself to be you this summer: 

1. Lift you colour - Add colour. Be colour. JiE recommends the strawberry pink hair / lavender, if you want to go to the "next level". But, JiE also suggests enriching your tones with the the deep classic St. Tropez brown.


2. Cut action- Just cut it off with the latest bob or shag.  Get it now, and be on top of what is about to come this fall.  Work on your individuality by doing what you feel suits your lifestyle.   When it's the right cut, it's the best cut!

3. Bohemian Baby- Move the hair away from the face.  Be adventurous by placing braids in different sizes all around. We can frame the face, create ponytails and even create braided crowns for you.


When you take the time out to try something new on yourself, you'll be surprised to find out how much you are getting closer to the real you.
