today i thought i would show you the salon that i get my hair done in LA. lucas salon is in echo park, it’s a pretty small space but has a ton of character. i’ve been seeing nicole there for about 2 years now. she’s actually the one that talked me into cutting bangs and also styled my hair for the benefit cosmetics posts. i’m gonna pass the post over to nicole, who’s going to walk through a couple of the products & styling tips she does on my hair when i visit the salon


“I see Bri about every 6 weeks. I love to lighten her up and refresh her color making her cool blond locks glow. I usually give her bangs a quick trim using point cutting in order to soften the edge. For Bri’s hair I keep the products simple for her blow dry. I use Kevin Murphy’s Anti Gravity spray at the roots for weightless volume,  and Kevin Murphy’s Young Again Infused Treatment Oil on the ends for strength and shine.”


“I blow dry her bangs by brushing the hair in both directions to help with any cowlicks while giving a little volume at the same time. I finish them off when they are almost totally dry with a small to medium round brush for shape. Another tip for drying hair is to rough dry it a bit before placing product in it.”


“Then rough dry again until it is almost completely dry before using your round brush for smoothing or curling. Your hair responds better to round brush manipulation that way, and your arm doesn’t fall off from all that unnecessary work!” – nicole


if you are looking for a great LA salon, you should definitely check out lucas!

    What a lovely space! I used to go to my local salon, one of the hairdressers was a great stylist who knew exactly what would look great on you but he left. So now I don’t really go to salons anymore. I love it though, but most of the time I’m just disappointed. When my hair grows back to a pretty good length, I might give it a try. If only I could just fly to LA and go to this hair salon!

    What exactly do you mean by “rough dry”? just blow drying without a brush?

    Nice atmosphere! I love those patterns clash! 🙂 🙂

    I have been looking for a new salon, and that’s right near me! Although my hair is pretty damaged right now – lots of self-bleaching, manic panic….I have been putting off going to a salon because I am embarrassed of how I’ve treated my hair!

    rachel, i want to say rough drying is just towel drying but i can’t be sure 🙂

    this reminds me i need a bang trim!

    Tori says:

    I’ve always loved your hair Bri! So it’s cool to see how you get it done. I’m in love with this salon space!

    Much love, http://www.myomlife.com/

    Thanks for the blowdrying tips! I can’t wait to put them to the test after my shower tomorrow morning 🙂

    what a beautiful space! i find it so inspiring that you took the time to thank nicole and introduce her to us:) she really is amazing!

    Stephanie says:

    Does Nicole, or do you, have any tips on ways to make it less damaged and dry from coloring it so light? My hair is the same color, and after about 6 months of platinum color it’s getting quite damaged.

    You are making me want to cut bangs, lady! Eeek! Love this post.

    Love your bangs, Bri! I’ve been thinking about getting bangs, too.

    Great idea for a post and I just love that salon…two stories even, how adorable.

    Love this! Your hair is perfection. I will definitely stop by this place sometime!
