Bridal Hair Styling California

Billy Lowe judges BEST OF THE BAY with Stephanie Jones Bridal Hair Stylist showcasing her artistic creation

Bridal Hair Styling is truly an art.  When it comes to BRIDAL HAIR, I can't think of a better artist than Stephanie Jones.  Stephanie specializes in bridal hair and bridal hair styling in the central coast.  So how did we meet?  Check it out. 

I was invited to judge a BEST OF THE BAY (San Francisco) - Bridal Hair Showcase in San Francisco along with another hair colleague a few years ago and a certain talent stood out among the rest.  Her name - Stephanie Jones.  Flawless makeup, black nails, blood-red dress and hair lifted to the max.  She didn't miss a beat explaining her vision for gorgeous bridal hair and the endless creations she's brought to life in her artistry and passion for beautiful bridal hair.   Each section of the model's hair was perfectly placed, formed, and structured.  Stephanie moved around the model and showcase description as light as a feather yet her passion was firm and unwavering.  Even I was a bit intimidated, I must say!

The result?  A TRUE WINNER.   However, one minor technicality kept her from winning the overall contest but to me I knew she was the BEST bridal hair stylist I had ever met.  She was THE most buttoned up contestant, THE most prepared expert, and THE most reliable hair stylist I could possibly hope for to lead the next generation in hair stylists and leading beauty experts. NEED I SAY MORE?

Through the years Stephanie (Steph) and I have become dear friends and I live vicariously through her world of beauty, vision and love of the islands (Hawaii).   While we enter another wedding season it's a time of reflection, artistic consideration, and gratitude for all of the beauty experts - EVERYWHERE - who make the world beautiful.

To my good friend Steph Jones - your work, to me, is that to be adored.  Keep going.   You shine among all stars.

Hair Oil and Moisture Treatment for Hair | Best uses

Hot Oil treatment, professional oil for hair, 100% natural
Hair and scalp oil is an essential part of many beauty rituals. Hair treatment and conditioning treatment for hair and scalp are add-on services provided by many hair salon and day spas.  

From salon moisture treatments for hair to at home hot oil treatments for hair, clients around the world use a wide variety of oils for their hair and scalp.  But why should you?  Let's investigate.

1.  RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC.   You know what it's like.  You're sitting and sitting, and there just aren't enough radio stations to tune into.  That's what the ends of your hair feel like when they feel dry, uncared for, or the victim of excessive thermal styling, perhaps.  The natural oils from your scalp most do not travel to the ends of your hair so while the scalp area stays nice and nourished with those natural oils, the ends of your hair become more and more distressed, damaged, and unhealthy looking.  Using a hair and scalp oil puts you in the fast lane for healthy, shiny, radiant looking hair.

2.  SMOOTH, SHINY RESULTS.  Using a hair and scalp oil helps tame the cuticle layer allowing it to lie more flat.  A smooth flat surface will reflect more light and appear more radiant and shiny.  It will also "travel" and flow more freely with its smooth, polished appearance.

3.  THERMAL PROTECTION.  Hair and scalp treatment oils can help protect hair against thermal styling by providing a moisture barrier to the strands.  This prevents further breakage, distressed looking hair, split ends, and more.

4.  ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION.    Smog, pollutants, blustery winters, scorching summers, weekends at the beach all play a part on creating stressors on the hair.  Many hair and scalp treatments are packed with vitamins and essentials that are healthy for the hair, as well as anti-oxidants and fatty acids to strengthen hair and keep it looking radiant and healthy.  Ward off those damaging effects by strengthening your beauty routine with a great oil treatment for hair.

5.  MORE EVEN RESULTS.  As we discussed earlier, when we shampoo or style our hair, the ends often become more and more damaged or distressed simply because nothing is there to protect them.  By applying treatment oils to hair and scalp, we even out our results SCALP TO ENDS rather than keeping essential nutrients in one place and not evenly dispersed.

It is possible to have hair that looks and feels healthy from the scalp to the ends but it's the right combination of routine professional care, at-home care, products and tools that are recommended for your hair type, and of course, NOT WAITING IN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC FOR TOO LONG before doing something about your beauty journey.  Put it in the fast lane and get gorgeous tresses as a result.

2.  Gloss & Toss Prep - Leave-in conditioner and detangler spray

Celebrities get Red Carpet Ready with a little help from Gloss & Toss Hair Care

Gloss & Toss DETANGLE BRUSH featured in

Available at:

"The BEST brush for detangling hair and daily styling."

Hollywood Awards Season is here and it's always such an exciting time.  Red carpet hair, the best celebrity hair stylists and makeup artists, beauty gifting events, and many airport pick-ups all set the stage for awards season here in Hollywood.  Behind the scenes the sets and stages look more like a shipping and handling facility out of a major airport than anything else.  The set-up and break-down is anything but glamorous.  So  just what does it take to be "red carpet ready" and what exactly does that mean? It all starts with hair and makeup and keeping actors looking great from the moment they step out.

Many clients go into a salon and point out a photo of their favorite ad or actor and say "I want this look."  But what they may not realize is that "the look" began at 4 or 5AM with hair and makeup arriving half an hour before that to get set up.  The actor sits with hair and makeup for an hour or two while studying lines or discussing things with a Director or Producer.  From there it's a number of run through shots (AKA "blocking"), last looks for hair, makeup and wardrobe, and then the shoot begins. That's the VERY basic breakdown of what the prep looks like.  Believe me there are many more moving parts.

During awards seasons the city is busy with events, coordinating talent schedules, ensuring transportation is ready and available and praying not to chip a nail.  It's a time when actors, producers, writers, and many other individuals come together to celebrate the workings of their production(s).  And of course - there's the fabulous SWAG BAGS.

We're very fortunate at Gloss & Toss to have worked with HOLLYWOOD SWAG BAGS for two years now in celebrating the successes of awards nominees and gifting them some fabulous Gloss & Toss hair products.  This year it's our brand new detangle brush.

This amazing detangle brush features:

  • 170 ultra-flexible bristles, 
  • a comfort-grip handle, 
  • breathable cushion base, 
  • comfort round tips at the end of bristles to gently massage scalp and to help prevent excess pulling or tugging when brushing hair
  • Lightweight design
  • Stand-up design
and so much more.  Not only is it a great detangling brush, it is perfect for wet or dry hair, and a variety of other styling options.  It's really great for teasing and adding a little "cushion" to your style to give more fullness and support.

As always the best tip for brushing and detangling hair is to start from the bottom and work your way up when you do - but before beginning with any styling tools we suggest separating hair with fingers first for easier brushing, separating, and less pulling.

The "red carpet" is really just an idea.  It's actually wherever you are, whatever gives you that "I feel good about me" moment, and we encourage you to celebrate that feeling each and every day.

Thank you for tuning into my blog here at and we'll be speaking to you soon.
