Sheer Luxe Beauty’s Hair Affair: D.C.

Event Recap

On November 15, 2014, in Washington, D.C., I had the pleasure of hosting my second style workshop with Sheer Luxe Beauty! In addition to discussing healthy hair care, protective styling and a host of other topics, I was joined by Yolanda Renee and Mel Burgos for a “Hair Crimes 101” and Q&A panel discussion.

I like interaction, so I always make it an interactive experience. Everyone was encouraged to participate and share their experiences and what they’ve learned in their hair care journey. It always means so much to me to have the opportunity to share with you all in person!

    Thank you for tutorials. I recently colored my hair with a box color.
    It is permanent. I went to several stylist to see about changing the color. It is lighter than my natural color. Maybe a shade or two.
    They suggested I could color again. I would like to darken it using
    a demi-permanent. Medium golden brown would be my color which is very
    close to my natural color. The box dye I used was medium brown. Can you go over a lighter permanent shade with a darker demi permanent shade?
