➜ PORTLAND, MAINE At Coco Cheveux, owner Tiffany Conway has been fnding that not all of the salon’s clients want their gray totally covered. “Some of our clients want a modern look that enhances their gray, a customized look made just for them,” Conway says. To that end, Conway created a menu offering gray service options that provides the opportunity to upgrade every client— both men and women—to a color client. Services include hand-painting strands in darker shades to decrease the amount of white hair and glazing to enhance the shimmer and tone of gray hair.
At least four times a year Christine Goodis completely rearranges the interior of her 650-square-foot boutique Aveda salon, Salon Christine. From the vintage couches and mirrors to the Craftsman toolbox stations and displays made from fallen tree branches, Salon Christine’s decor is 100 percent refurbished and recycled—and each piece is moveable. Goodis, who had a background in theater before becoming a hairdresser and working with such notable talents as Vivienne Mackinder, Trevor Sorbie, Irvine Rusk and Dwight Miller, says rearranging the salon allows her to alter the mood and atmosphere. “It gives me a new and fresh outlook to see my guests in,” Goodis says. “I love how they look around in awe every time this charming studio is reconﬁgured.”

HOWELL, NEW JERSEY
When one of De La Mer Salon & Spa colorist Dominique DeFrancesco’s clients told her she wanted to transition from classic highlights to something more unique, DeFrancesco opted for a hair-painting technique that created depth at the root and a brightening effect at the ends. She dubbed the eyecatching look “Setting Into the Sun.” “It’s not every day you get to do something fun and creative when a guest sits in your chair,” DeFrancesco says. “This guest is a musician, so her lifestyle allows for individuality.”
Her process, using a hair-painting technique: Pre-lighten with Goldwell Silk Lift 30-volume; apply Elumen 40 mls Clear, 7 mls KB@7 and 4 mls GK@all to the roots; and melt to the ends with Elumen 30 mls SV@10, 20 mls AB@9, 4 mls PK@all, 2 mls KB@7 and 4 mls GK@all.
