April Showers

HairQueen News It is Spring and time to think about a Spring Haircut or Fresh Spring Hair Color.  Recently I took a Balayage Class to freshen up my color skills.  Balayage means to "sweep" or "paint" in French.  With this technique I am able to create softer less noticeable regrowth lines.  This is especially helpful for blond and silver haired clients. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft natural looks.  Although of course as is often the case to create something simple takes time, technique, and expertise.  If you would like find out if this technique is right for you, let's talk at your next hair appointment. In the meantime here is a recent example of a Balayage for a Brunette whose hair I have been reverting from all over Color to Prestige Silver and Brunette.

Stress-Free Tax Season

Runs Businesses with Scissors Tax season is a stressful time of year for everyone, but especially for small business owners and entrepreneurs. It's this time of year that I like to focus on de-stressing. These are my tips for staying stress-free during tax season: Make a cup of tea and review all your income and expenses for 2015. Hire a professional bookkeeper to review that all your income and expenses are sorted out properly. Hire a Certified Public Accountant and give everything from your bookkeeper to the CPA Be prepared to answer questions from the bookkeeper and the CPA. Don't cry if this is overwhelming, as a small business owner you wear a lot of hats - Chief Financial Officer is only one of them. Contact Suzanne** and set up an appointment so she can help you get organized for next year. Remember you know more than you think you do!
