Ah! A Cut, Fresh Roots, Color and Curls

Published in: Daily Beauty

Whenever I leave the salon after my friend Alis cuts and colors my hair, I feel like a new person…who also happens to be covered in magical unicorn glitter and fairy dust.



Alis has some serious hair magic mojo when it comes to haircuts and color.

I saw her this past weekend at Fox + Stone salon in Corte Madera. She touched up my roots and the color I had in my balayage highlights, and trimmed up the ends just to give the layers some movement and life.

Oh! — and she also curled my hair with a large-barrel curler, and how she does those perfect ’40s-style curls, I’ll never know. I’ve tried to do them a bunch of times on my own at home, and I can never get them to sit quite right… I’ll definitely be using Living Proof Dry Shampoo to make this hairstyle last as long as possible.

By the way, say hi to Alis’s dog Koukla, who’s sweeter than sweet. She’s another reason I like to go to Fox + Stone salon. She hangs out in my lap for pets and conversation while Alis does my hair.


Here’s Koukla in her Christmas sweater…

  2. Flying out all the way to the Bay area from Germany might seem a little too much for a hair cut, but I am seriously tempted.

    Aww, Koukla is so cute! Is Alis Greek? Koukla or kouklamou is a Greek term of endearment for little girls, it means beautiful doll or baby doll.

    You’re both cute- you & the doggie that is. Isn’t it great having a stylist with magical mojo? Anyone who can cover me in magical unicorn glitter & fairy tale dust is aight in my book! Love the hair. Then again, you make even bad hair days look good 😉
