Amber's Hair Diary: Creativity and Inspiration + Winter Hair Change-Up

Creativity and inspiration.  Two words that can mean anything to anyone.  They can be found in everything and everyone, and they are the reason why I love the beauty industry. I am able to take a creative idea and turn it into living inspiration. I want to engage with everyone about hair, educate as well as be educated. One of the best ways for me to to start that conversation is with my own hair.

The seasons are changing soon which means so is my hair!  In my past I never actually had a hair stylist who seemed to truly care about their own hair, and well now I question why I would ever go to a hair stylist who doesnt keep their hair amazing at all times.  No, this doesn't mean that I only put people into crazy styles,   but it does mean that I am challenging myself and experimenting, and learning new techniuques often.  I strive to be good at every type of hair styling from your every day looks to editorial looks.  I am seeking inspriation for my creative expressions in everything so that I am able to meet the hair styling needs of every guest I come into contact with.

Lately, I have been finding a lot of inspiration from shapes, colors, and textures in nature. And also, from researching other Hair Stylists and the kind of work that in my mind shows a depth of creativity and inspiriration. I love the work from Hair Stylist Peter Gray. 


With all that being said below is the video that is the inspiration for my winter hair change-up. My educator at school showed it to me and I fell in love. It is Dazed + Confused I Was a Punk Rock Princess.   The Hair Stylist/ Director is Peter Gray. With other credits going to:

The last look in the video is our inspiration.  My educator Kelly at school has been given free creative reign. So I am excited to see the results.  They should be done by the end of the day to day.  Keep tabs on our Facebook wall and Instagram and there will be a follow up post as well.   It is amazing inspiration full of bright color and geometiric shapes!
