Reign in Purple

It was raining purple today at The Artform Studio's pop up shop in Glendale. Played Prince's music all day while working.  He did it all from music production, writing lyrics, singing, instrumentalizing, and more. Rest in Peace Prince. 

His music and style inspired me to produce our Purple Reign collection. I had a great time working with my team last year on this. I did all hair color, hairstyling, make up, and photography for this collection and collaborated with Kaz Shimada cutting hair and Kheyli Torres cutting and assisting with hairstyling. Geraldine Caalim was our wardrobe stylist and had great vintage pieces to shoot with.

"Psalms"

Styling for a new music video "Psalms" a song on the Something About April 2 album. Directed by David Wong and I styled up some actors. 50's hair, make up, wardrobe styling. I'm glad I got to use the faux fur scarf find from www.camilledeprini.com on actor/singer Loren Oden. Actress Cynthia Aguilar is wearing what quickly found in my closet. Loved styling for this black and white video. I was careful about what colors to use for wardrobe so that it doesn't get lost in the darkness.

Make up from Beauty Counter

I'm so happy I got my make up today by Beauty Counter. It's great for anyone who doesn't really wear make up and want to start with a safe line for daily make up use. I like that it's lightly pigmented, fragrance free, and non toxic. I am now a beauty consultant for Beauty Counter. I have some at our pop up hair and make up studio to try while you are in for a hair and/or make up appointment with me. You can also find more information on... http://www.beautycounter.com/sherryyounge/

My daily make up from Beauty Counter. Tint Skin sheer foundation. Medium Brow pencil. Buff Lipgloss. Make up made safe for everyone💗

My daily make up from Beauty Counter. Tint Skin sheer foundation. Medium Brow pencil. Buff Lipgloss. Make up made safe for everyone💗

Here's why I like my make up by Beauty Counter.....

 #foundation : I finally found a tinted formula foundation that has clear sheer coverage that can still have my freckles appear. I don’t like hiding my freckles as when I do, my face looks grey when I use them. I’m using tinted tones called Honey and Golden sometimes blended or I use to highlight and contour.

#browpencil : I like this medium shade. It works best for me as my brows need filling on the outer parts of my brows since it’s a bit sparse.

#lipgloss : I love this gloss called Buff. It keeps my lips moisturized and it’s not too heavy either.

"Back to School" Kids Hairstyle tutorial

It's back to school for most kids in LA and lice prevention is important. Lice does not discriminate hair types, but they often stray away from tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender, and/or peppermint. My kids have curly hair and I have been using Deva hair care for curly hair and Babo Botanicals Tea Tree Spray leave in hair conditioner for lice prevention. 

Styling my 2 year old's hair in the morning gets challenging. I normally would do it while she is eating or watching something on kids YouTube. My twisted hairstyle has been quick and easy. It keeps her hair from getting so tangled everyday. 

Back to school morning curly hair challenges. Use Deva curl hair care and Babo Botanicals Tea Tree Lice Repel conditioning spray for moisture, hold, and lice prevention.

Back to school morning curly hair challenges. Use Deva curl hair care and Babo Botanicals Tea Tree Lice Repel conditioning spray for moisture, hold, and lice prevention.

Step 1 : Spray Tea Tree lice prevention leave in conditioner all over hair.

Step 2 : Spray Deva curl leave in conditioner for extra moisture as curly hair needs moisture. Comb or brush through. I have been using the Wet brush for dry/wet hair it's so easy to get tangles out of hair. 

Step 3 : Apply about a quarter size of Deva curl styling cream all over hair. Comb or brush through.

Step 4 : Optional - Apply about a quarter size of Deva curl gel for extra holding power.  

Step 5 : Part hair on the side or middle. Twist hair away from face starting at the top of head and as you twist down, take hair from the sides of head all the way down to nape of neck. Use fabric elastic band to hold in place and then twist hair on the other side. Take place holder band off and use to connect the tails together for one low ponytail.  

Step 5 : Spray Tea Tree lice prevention leave in conditioner again for extra measure.

2016 New Year's Day

Started off with such a full day. Got my hair, make up, and style video filmed this morning which didn't take as long as editing and social media postings which really sometimes makes me want to throw up on how tedious all of this gets....but I do enjoy seeing results. Marketing has changed drastically and I have to promote my business as many times as possible. It's all about content, skill level, and style. I gotta keep up with it all as I manage my clients, my kids, and my husband is on his own as he is even busier. 

I have been so fortunate to have my parents and sisters help us out with our kids as we work daily. I love my job and at most times it still doesn't feel like work as I get to play with hair and make up and talk to my clients who I have built long lasting relationships with. It's even better when one of your best friends comes in at the end of your day, gets her hair session in and then it's off for dinner and a drink for us at the end of the night. It really helps us ladies to catch up on each other lives and listen to how much we have grown and what we need to do for more growth in our lives. It's was that kind of night tonight. Now off to get my kids and spend time with my husband and call it a night! Happy New Year!!!!!

Happy

The challenges that I have encountered throughout 2015 has made me rethink about what really makes me happy. Life can get even more complicated throughout the years and trying to balance everything I want to do can get frustrating. Especially when uncontrollable factors come into our lives. It's even harder to manage to stay happy. I have been so fortunate to have such a loving family, supportive friends, and clients that have been here to keep me moving forward. It makes me happy that I can share my love for the artistry of hair, make up, and styling in a nee space surrounded by the art of music in our new Highland Park space very soon. Staying happy in 2016...Happy New Year!!!

Grey Hair Days

Most people would blame grey hair days over all the stress they may encounter on a daily basis as they mature over time. Me being a business owner, wife of a busy musician, mother of 2, oldest sister of 3, and daugher of maturing parents, would probably be the blame of my growing grey hair days, but I embrace them as well as I am embracing my grey hairs. I'm not as grey yet, but am embracing them and glad that this grey hair trend is here. 

I'm having a great grey hair day!  Incorporated a grey rhinestone button up with a burgundy velvet suit jacket, gold accessories, and my mom's vintage burgundy boots for some brightness.

If you are one of my clients who have been coming in frequently to see me to cover or hide your greys...you know I love grey hair. Grey hair in most of my clients help me get closer to more of an ash tone in dark hair where most of my clients have darker hair don't want to see the brassiness color tones that dark hair gives off after their hair color toner wears off. My solution is to overcast the grey hair by keeping your natural hair and adding baby lights, which are very thin highlights and lowlights to blend the natural  greys into the processed hair color. Sometimes this process can take lots of sessions to get to a more ashy hair color because most clients would have used really dark hair color over time. It takes time to get lighter, but it's been my solution to not coming in every month to cover your greys, but coming in every 3 months instead to touch up and blend/overcast the greys. Schwarzkopf hair color and hair care has been my favorite to use. I've been using this color line for about 18 years and I'm still loving it! I have formulated my own dark grey hair color toner and use their silver shampoo and color toning mousse to keep my hair from getting brassy. 

I'm having a good grey hair day! I'll be working tomorrow at our Pop-up shop in Glendale.  I'm available between 2p-4p for appointments call 213-613-1050 or DM or email theartformstudio@gmail.com or book me on The Artform Studio app.

Meeting of the Minds

I had a great time last night for our holiday gathering in Highland Park at Maximiliano restaurant with my team of artists at The Artform Studio. Each and everyone of us embrace all art forms and share them with our clients daily. I can't wait until we can all come back together and share more of it in our new space in the growing Historic Highland Park District. I'm afraid we will be termed a new hipster business coming in, but excited to be apart of a growing community where we are able to share our art. We are artists continuing to strive to be better everyday. We continue to educated ourselves in our industry of hair, make up, music, and fashion and art. I feel our success has gotten us to be surrounded by great opportunities to sustain our growth. We work smart, long, and hard hours to maintain our success with our team through constant communication. I am inspired by my team to keep The Artform Studio going...thank you everyone who have supported us through it all!!! Happy Holidays!

Hair, Make up, Music, Fashion

Good morning, I'm excited on the anticipation of our new location in Highland Park for The Artform Studio: Haircuts & Records. We will be expanding services and retail to more hair, make up, music, and fashion. We are currently working at a temporary space in Glendale taking hair and make up appointments, but it's just not the same without sharing our records with our clients. I have been doing hair for almost 19 years, make up for 10 years, wardrobe styling, photography, and producing projects that relate to music about 3 years now.  I enjoy having a business where I can combine all art forms in our space. 

I often change my look from time to time depending on how long my hair is. My favorite hairstyles are big beehive, pinup looking updo's, 40's/50's wingtip liner eye make up, and vintage jewelry and frames.

My wedding earrings at the top, I still love wearing. I have hear some wedding hair accessories I made for my best friend's wedding. I do want to make more sometime, maybe do a crafting workshop night at Artform next year.
