RedBloom In Real Life Guest Feature - Vanisha Breault

Shairing a special #RedBloomInRealLife guest feature on the inspiring woman is Vanisha Breault. A guest of Master Stylist Annah, Vanisha’s story is truly heartwarming and we hope you’ll take a moment to read her story…

Vanisha

About Vanisha:

Vanisha is the Founder, CEO and Social Justice Warrior of the Terminator Foundation, who’s vision is to reach individuals on a global scale that are affected by drug and alcohol addiction to radically revolutionize their lives using the Triathlon experience. After overcoming her own personal recovery and that of her daughter Eden, she became devoted to living her life and her recovery out loud. Using her past along with her skills and education, she helps others thrive after facing their own adversities. Vanisha’s mission is to declare war on the shame and stigma associated with addiction in hopes that other youth might find their way home and that every person grasped by the clutches of this disease may also find their voices and receive the support, acceptance and compassion that they legitimately deserve. Vanisha exemplifies that, regardless of the obstacles one may face, everyone can conquer them and build a life of resiliency and hope!

Q&A with Vanisha:

How do you define beauty? 

“Beauty to me is defined by an inward acceptance of self and self-love. Accepting myself and loving myself through every age & stage of my life. This inward work shows up on my outsides.”

~

What’s a unique gift that you want to share with the world? 

“The power of my story. And the gift of “Believing.” Believing in another human being when they cannot believe for themselves or in themselves (yet)”

~

How do you continue to Bloom? 

“I laughed when I read this question 😊 I am able to continue to bloom when I can stand in the grace and mercy that’s freely given to me on a daily basis. In and of myself, I can be hard on myself at times...remembering Who I am, and Whose I am; changes everything...that’s when I bloom”

Annah

Take your ponytail up a notch this holiday season with this FANCY PONY TUTORIAL!

With only slightly more effort you can change your pony from basic to fancy! It keeps it low maintenance, while still looking like you put in some effort.

We demonstrated this tutorial on long hair but it can work on shoulder length hair as well. Also we went for more of an undone look but you could also make this same style into a smooth and polished look instead.

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice - Why RED is the it color for Fall 2018

It’s official - Fall has arrived in Calgary. There is a new, crisp feeling in the air. The leaves are changing to vibrant colours of red and orange. We’ve even had our first snowfall! With the change of the season, we often are ready to make room for changes in our lives. Many of us look to our hair as an opportunity to express seasonal change. There are different ways to change your hairstyle - a new colour is a ravishing way to express yourself and embrace the cooler weather.

Red is one of the biggest colour trends we are seeing this fall. Switching out blonde or brunette locks for a new, brilliant shade is an exciting way to try something new. From influencers such as Daisy Clementine, who rocks beautiful copper locks with effortless style - to celebrities like Emma Stone and Julianne Hough, we are seeing shades of red everywhere this season. Red has immersed fall fashion in many copper and auburn shades. So it’s safe to say, RED is the it color for fall 2018. Red is a magical colour. It is a colour that commands attention. It is a color of passion and love. A colour that enhances human metabolism and raises the heart rate. We love red so much, we named RedBloom after it! Why not try red this season, and open up a whole new realm of style expression?!

Here is an example of a transformative red done recently in our salons. Hillary has been a guest of RedBloom for over a year. Hillary (@hillaryjtaylor) works as a instructor at Barre West here in Calgary, and has a new creative endeavor on the horizon. She’s been rocking blonde locks for a long time and wanted to make a change. She didn’t want to be blonde, and she didn't want to be brunette. Having dabbled in shades of strawberry blonde over the summer, she was finally ready to take the plunge and go red. Here are some before and after photos from her most recent session:

As you can see, a fresh colour has transformed her style! Having never had a hair color quite like this - Hillary now has a new fresh, fierce attitude to take on the world. We styled her new locks with some loose beach waves. For this look we used Evo Salty Dog Beach Spray. We also added some Aveda Control Force for effortless texture. Hillary paired her red locks with this gorgeous black blazer! But did you know redheads can rock colour too? While black looks stunning on a redhead, don’t feel like you are limited to only black. You make the rules! Have fun with it!

Want to try out this hair trend? Bring some of these color inspirations to your next appointment, and let your stylist find the perfect alchemy for you. Trade in your blonde locks for some copper or strawberry. Brunettes - try auburn, or mahogany. Whatever your style, let your RedBloom stylist help find the perfect shade of RED for you!
