Last week I had the privilege of visiting Gavert Atelier for quite the treat for my bonce (that means head in Brit-slang for my US readers, which I believe is most of you!)
Sherry Ratay – colorist extraordinaire was visiting from her home base in Florida and had a little space in her schedule, for little old me, plus, extra bonus – so did Mika Fowler, dry cutting extraordinaire based out of Gavert Atelier. A cut and colour? Whoop whoop.
Sherry Ratay is trained the "Minardi way" in reference to famed colorist Beth Minardi and uses as well as teaches her technique, along with her own, in salons across the country. Sherry owns her own salon in Florida but travels to Los Angeles once a month to share the masterful coloring love, as well as train the staff at Gavert Atelier. She is most well known for her "gorgeous reds" and "American Balayage" – which was what I was treated to!
American Balayage is a natural highlighting process wherein highlights are hand painted, appearing less "striped" and more naturally integrated into the hair, as if your hair had been simply sun-kissed. The lightening is away from the root, avoiding an obvious root grow out situation and creating a subtle ombré effect. The result is super natural, healthy looking hair with dimension! The technique is tricky and time consuming, and requires an expert – thanks Sherry!
I was also treated to a cut from "dry cutting" expert Mika Fowler. I'd never had a "dry cut" before and it was a fascinating process – one that I'm quite sold on. Instead of the usual shampoo followed by wet cut, Mika blow dries your hair straight and gets to work.
Because the hair is dry it makes it easier to get a more accurate cut without removing too much hair, essential for someone like me (I get my hair cut about once or twice a year to avoid losing my long locks!). Mika can literally cut out the damage. As it had been over 6 months since my last hair cut (and prior to that, a full year) I allowed an inch to go – just to clear the damaged ends as well as more shaping around the face.
You can see the full process below – including the freshly blown out pics. Unfortunately, thanks to Los Angeles' rainy spell – I didn't get any great pics of my professionally blown out hair – the above pics are my own styling (kept shiny and vibrant with Joico products!)
My cut and colour were courtesy of the team, special thanks to everyone at Gavert Atelier, Sherry Ratay, Mika Fowler and the team at Pivotal PR! What a treat :)
