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.

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 :)

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!
