Before and After Hair…Worth a Click!

Hair Extraordinaire!

Every 6 Weeks We Make a Saturday Pilgrimage to Our Mecca…Just the Girls.

Sergio’s Hair Studio, A Paul Mitchell Salon.  In Albuquerque.

The Salon is Top Rated.  Sergio is a Paul Mitchell National Educator.

Color and Cut.  His Specialties.


Our Visits are a Family Gathering.  A Time to Relax and Let the Master Work His Magic.

We Laugh.  Giggle.  Joke.  And Enjoy Spending Time Together.

Family Time at the Salon.

The Magical Chair Awaits.

First Up.  Me.  All Over Color.  And a Trim.

The Sun is Deadly on Red Hair.  Zapping Color with Every Ray.

The Before.  A Fried Hot Mess.

Faded Red.  Highlights Gone Rogue.

The Color – Copper.

Apply to the Roots.

Pull Through to the Ends.  In Sections.

A Top Knot of Color.  Now Wait.

Sergio Really is That Good.

Now the Doodles.

Miss Doodle.  A Trim and a Hint of Color.

Peekaboo Highlights.  Color Tucked Under the Hair.  Hidden until She Moves her Head.

The Test Color…Teal.  Very Mermaid.

There is an Artist’s Pallet of Choices.

Any Favorites?

When You Can’t Decide…Go with Two…Cobalt to Teal.

First Bleach.  Foils for the Sections.

A Foil Bouquet.

The Dark Hair must be Bleached First before Color can be Applied.

Big Smiles for the Waiting.  Don’t Try This at Home.


Last Up.   Miss Doodle 2.   A Trim.   No Color.

The Unwritten Rule…No Color until High School.  Sergio Says.  🙂

In Summer Heat, Hair Grows Like Weeds.

No Color…But there can be Curls!

Throw in Some Curls for Style.

  1. Fascinating! Kept waiting to see what Mr. Doodle was having done. Love Mrs. Doodle’s color and cut. Ms. Colorado looks great, worth the trip! But those Doodle girls, gorgeous! What awesome hair! Love the colors and curls! I am so jealous of those with great hair! Sergio rocks!

  2. Hi Laura…Thank you…hair transformations every 6 weeks is fun…hope you find someone in your neck of the woods…if not, we’d love to see you here. 🙂
