Beachy Photoshoot

We're finally ready to share these amazing images from the Beach Photoshoot with stylist Seana Tuohy and Tiffany Ward.

Seana's inspiration for the shoot was a mix of tribal and editorial. With some amazing jewelry, and a mix of jumpsuits, we brought this shoot to Gray Whale Cove to create a fun, beachy shoot.


Seana used Bumble and bumble's Thickening mousse at the crown and Dryspun Thickening Spray for a light, airy texture. Her bun is simple and clean using Bumble's Does it All spray for soft hold.

And my personal favorite...the infamous half-up top knot that was huge this Winter. Root Shadow and highlights also by Seana Tuohy.

Seriously cool hair-Styling in San Francisco

Edo can't get enough of our Pony Salon education by top stylist Corinna Hernandez. Back from Fashion week and armed with more amazing styling techniques, she focuses on back combing and bobby pin placement for an advanced class with Edo stylists.

We love this Elvis inspired updo by Corinna Hernandez. A little pompadour in the front and a modern french twist in the back.

Here are a few more photos from the class:

With a little winged eyeliner and some black skinny jeans, this super fun beehive is the perfect mod updo for a night out.

The latest hair trends we love in San Francisco

Remember how we mentioned the 90's coming back? I thought it couldn't be true...

I was totally wrong. It certainly is no longer a question but in fact a true statement. This morning I passed a girl wearing a plastic tattoo choker! Remember those?! I used to buy those things at the dollar store when I was small. It's amazing what I see in the Street Fashion World...especially with hair.

This hairstyle, I secretly love though. It seems so silly that something so easy can look a little grungy but still, so stylish.

I'm talking about the half-up topknot!

This is the best and easiest way to leave your house with messy, unkempt hair that takes little-to-no time styling. Now, whether or not you can pull it off without putting some thought in to your makeup and outfit choice...is a different story.

Twisted and pulled back at the crown, you can wear it sleek or add a little texture. I personally like it best with a little knot and some frayed out ends. Use Bumble and bumble's City Swept spray mixed with a little Dry Spun.

Here is a photo of a pulled back half-up top knot:

And here are preview photos from last months photoshoot with hair by Seana Tuohy and photography Tiffany Ward:

Follow back with more photos from the shoot and let us know if you're loving this efortless style.

San Francisco's sleek ponytails

As many of you know, we just adore our in-house lead educator Corinna Hernandez. This morning she taught the Edo staff high-fashion, backstage ponytails inspired by Bottega Veneta's at 2014 Fashion Week, Milan edition.

We first got started on her beautiful model Vicky. Vicky has perfect hair for this, not too thick and little to no waves. Corinna's first step was prepping her hair with Bumble and bumble's Prep Spray then saturating it with Thickening Spray, blow-drying hair from roots to end making sure to keep the hair close to the head and free of any kinks. After half a can of Does it All and many brush strokes, she secured the ponytail with a hair bungee, not a rubber band. Finishing off with Invisible Oil...the hair is now sleek but not wet looking.

Here are some photos of the clean and luminous ponytail from today's advanced styling class:

Elegant, polished and sophisticated. The sleek pony doesn't have to only grace the runway.

xoxo Edo Salon

Quote from hair hero Guido Paulo,

“The hair for Bottega Veneta is clean and sharp, which is a bit of a departure from previous seasons,” said Guido. “In the past, the hairstyles were easier, softer and more natural. A sort of 90′s minimalism inspired me, so the hair is simple with blunt lines. Hair extensions were used to create a very long fake ponytail that resembles the same thickness and consistency of a horse’s tail. There is certainly an intended element of artificiality to the hair,” he explained.

Bold Spring colors

This week San Francisco got our annual Spring heat wave and the Floridian in me came out. I'm loving it! Tank tops, skirts, sandals and the best part?! Bold make-up.

Warm weather is the perfect excuse to ditch the black liner and heavy mascara to make room for something that won't melt off your face in an hour...... bright lipstick!

I'm talking hot pinks, fuchsias and corals with that perfect finish. Matte, glossy (not too shiny) and paired with a bright, highlighted eye.

Even better? I found the cutest lip stain that us girls at Edo love. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in matte or balm stain. Stays all day and gives you the bold lip you need in this 90 degree weather.

Ice Queen-White blonde in San Francisco

Another marvelous make-over this season but this time inspired by the silvery X-Men babe, Storm.

We were contacted by Bryn Newman, fashion blogger and creative connoisseur-lover of everything fashion, art and design-to take her from warm copper to ice white. Bryn recently had some hair trouble and found us on Yelp where she saw we loved extreme colors and Spring make-overs. What's more fantastic than silky icy blonde?

Bryn had experimented with box color years ago and just recently had her hair darkened to a reddish brown, a color a bit too warm for her. She's the kind of gal who changes her hair like she changes her wardrobe and has had everything from highlights- to natural color to chestnut brown and this time, she really just wanted to get rid of the warmth to welcome a cool new blonde.

We started by booking her a test strand with co-owner and color specialist, Jayne Matthews. Shortly after determining that her hair could handle a lot without compromising the integrity too much, we booked her an appointment with Seana for the real deal.

The first step was lightening her hair using a low volume and making sure to stay off her roots. After the first process Seana and Jayne got her to a light golden blonde. With her hair just previously being colored, the warmth in her red stuck on the ends so another lightening was necessary putting those lovely ladies here until 10:45pm! It was a hair miracle to get her bright blonde in one sitting but violà! They did it!

A word to the wise for you bold gals looking to transform your color this spring, do a test strand first! Make sure your hair is healthy enough to handle anything thrown it's way. Invest in deep conditioning protein masques like Bumble and bumble's Mending line to repair chemically treated hair and lastly, expect the coloring to take a couple of appointments. Rome wasn't built in a day :)

Enjoy Bryn's blog Stone Fox Style for fashion tips, amazing finds and wardrobe inspiration. Check out her post about her blonding experience and book a color consultation anytime with one of Edo's color specialists at 415.861.0131.

Pastel hair makes for a great Photoshoot

WOW. Pastel hair was a big hit last year and it was even bigger at Edo this year. We got clients wanting every soft shade of purple, pink and peach so we figured....why not have a dreamy pastel photoshoot?

First thing we did was find the perfect model. Gabi is a 17 year old dreamboat from Los Angeles who was in town for the weekend and we knew we wanted to give her the full Spring color makeover. Her hair was virgin brown and she had begged her mom for pastel purple so this was her opportunity to finally get that big change she wanted. The color process was long and took a few steps but luckily with the right Wella and Pravana color, we got her to perfection. A soft and lush pastel lilac with gorgeous dimension.

Credit for this beautiful color goes to Dae Starkweather who put in so much elbo grease to get this perfect lilac hair, photography to manger of Edo Tiffany Ward, Styling to Heather Dean-one of Edo's top stylists and make-up to Seana Tuohy- in house make-up artist.

More pretty pastels coming soon!

Gorgeous updos for any San Francisco bride

There are never enough beautiful updos in this world and wispy pinned up braids just radiate elegance. Add some jewels, chains and ribbons for an extra chic style and you've got yourself an easy and beautiful updo. 
Pairing the two was one of the biggest trends we saw last season on the catwalk and once our in-house educator Corinna Hernandez got back from New York Fashion Week she was dying to show off some fabulous backstage looks she did at the Dolce and Gabbana show.

We feel so grateful to learn from the best and with the start of wedding season approaching, we are ready for any stylish updo that comes our way.

The dream of the 90's are alive in San Francisco

This weekend was spent in Dolores Park because the weather was warm and I was in need of a sunny Sunday picnic. I know what you're thinking....Dolores Park on a Sunday, are you crazy?! Maybe, but the people watching was unbeatable and I got confirmation that the 90's are indeed coming back.

I don't mean the obvious 'grunge' look with flannels and jean shorts but more that late 90's thick, messy texture in girls hair full of faded dip dye color and side-flipped bangs. Crop tops, headbands as far as the eye can see and short bobs for those who are in touch with their 'alternative side'. (Think Jane from Daria)

I can't tell if I love it though. Hair WAS a little freer and fun 15 years ago and a little less polished. Less time making perfect curling iron waves and more time crimping and twisting little ponytails.

Please though, no fake dreads and scrunchies.

What do you think? Are you loving the 90's trends coming back?

xoxo Edo

San Francisco's cutest Boutique

Totally in love.

I adore this season's artist and designer at Edo Salon. Spring is the time for pretty in pastels and Valerie Santillo's soft color pallet fits in beautifully with our boutique Salon & Gallery.

"Her style is chic, vintage and feminine with designs rich in pastels, florals and charming boudoir."

Here are some photos of her very successful opening reception during the Lower Haight Art Walk

I am a fashion designer and freelance illustrator living in San Francisco, California.  My profession in the lingerie business and my love for vintage lingerie and clothing greatly influences my work. I am inspired by individual, personal style, the fashion industry and typically draw from the beauty that surrounds me on a daily basis; whether it be vintage details on a dress, my garden or the beautiful colors and architecture of the amazing city of San Francisco... which, I seem to never grow tired of. I couldn't imagine a life without creating, I just want to share all I can....

Valerie's current work primarily consists of graphite, ink & collage and focuses on themes of fashion, nostalgia, nature and female beauty. Her work will be on display until the end of May. Stop by anytime to purchase one of a kind pieces.
