Before and After Balayage by Peaches

This is Fiona! This beautiful spirit liked the color of her hair but wanted to make it a little warmer and correct the line of demarcation. I decided to do a reverse balayage. I took a darker color (that matched her roots) and did a balayage, but only feathering the color from the roots to the line of demarcation. I made it a little "irregular" in my application so it would look more natural and like the color was melting into her hair.

On the roots to correct the line, I used Redken Shades EQ 6N,7N equal part with a little 8WG. On her ends I used Dialights 10.32 to bring some warmth but still having a more natural tone.

Bridal Season Prep!

Gearing up for updo season (aka Bridal Season; aka Spring), we set up a class with Sam Hayes Jr. and John Mok, both from our friend salon diPietro Todd Salons + Academy. Last year was one of our busiest years for wedding groups to date, and this year is heading in the same direction so we want to make sure everyone's updo skills are refreshed. This was also a chance for the apprentices to continue their training on bridal services.

We started off with some history on the updo style and then a technical demo on two live models. In the afternoon everyone got a chance to put the technique into play.


Thank you to Wendy from René Furterer USA for organizing this in-depth class 🙂

Curling Hair Cutting Class with René Furterer

In preparation for the launch of the Sublime Curl line, René Furterer is offering its salon partners education focusing on... you guessed it, curly hair. Atelier Emmanuel was happy to again host the class for the Bay Area, which featured acclaimed stylist and educator Ali Salahshoor.

Ali Salahshoor graduated from high school at the very young age of 16. From there he pursued a two year education in the field of Architecture. Ali always had a lingering passion for the world of hairdressing and discovered that he could implement concepts and theories from architecture school and apply them to haircutting and styling. Thus began the inspiration for his love of hair.

The day was split into two portions. A demonstration, to a packed house in the morning, focused on curly hair cutting and introducing the Sublime Curl; and then, in the afternoon a smaller group reconvened for hands-on training with Ali.

Always a pleasure to host events with René Furterer, and to glean new techniques with master stylists!

Before and After

Indelisa was one of the stylists who participated in the afternoon session. Here are pics of her model before and after. Adding layers and removing weight revived curls which were then styled with Sublime Curl products, bringing just the right amount of shine.

Wella educator Kara Larby recently hosted a 'True Blonde' class at Atelier Emmanuel. Through balayage, highlights and/or toners, the focus was to work on 'blonding' techniques with a natural result. 

After one hour theory, our 4 amazing models arrived for the hands-on part. Here are a few pics from during the class. We're always on the lookout for Academy models; be in touch if you'd like to participate!

Behind the scenes NYFW SS2017 with Jessica

Every New York Fashion Week, René Furterer partner salons have the opportunity to send stylists to work backstage. Stylists must submit a portfolio piece to qualify, competing for a few limited slots. For Spring/Summer 2017, Jessica won a position as part of the Brooks Brothers styling team.

"NYFW was an amazing experience. The whole René Furterer team was so nice and it was such great energy backstage. The show was for Brooks Brothers, with Zac Posen serving as creative director (read about how Zac Posen is revamping Brooks Brothers here). It was held at The Glass Houses in the Chelsea district. The venue was spacious, full of light and it was such a beautiful NYC day.

The look for the models was a sophisticated natural beach wave. We were lead by lead stylist Diego Da Silva; he was so welcoming and easy going. I'm very grateful to René Furterer and my AE family for this incredible opportunity. I felt confident and at ease styling for NYFW. I knew this was something I'd love to do again. This experience was so inspiring, looking forward to future shows!"

Fashion Community Week is an organization focused on providing a powerful marketing and Business platform for Fashion, Beauty and Technology industries to showcase their products and services. We are the Global intersection of Fashion in San Francisco.


2016 continued the success of the last two years, with 4 days of Fashion shows, Exhibitions and Conferences. The Fashion shows included Local and International Fashion Designers, showcasing Couture, Ready to Wear, Emerging, Sustainable, and Wearable Technology. The Showrooms and Conferences featured a plethora of topics and categories of fashion — including Fashion Technology; Sustainable Designs; Fashion Non Profits; High-end Couturiers; Ethnic Designs.




Kicking off a week of fashion, was the Prêt-a-porter Fashion Show, held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The evening began with a VIP Cocktail hour with Fashion Industry guests, followed by a showroom presentation and fashion show. The showroom presented exclusive collections and items that are not in the General Market.

Atelier Emmanuel was on-board to style hair and apply makeup (^_^)

19 models were prepped by our team. Following F/W 2016 ready-to-wear trends, makeup was Apple lips and Cat Eyes and hair was styled with a wavy, flowing, natural look. The mood was calm and organized, thanks to head organizer Shirin Hashem. The models and the designers were all easy to work with. A very positive vibe to start off a week of fashion!

Brigade Beauté Makeup and Fashion Workshop

Last Monday, we hosted the first workshop by Brigade Beauté.

After a bubbly networking session and a short introduction, the participants were divided in 2 groups.

Fashion blogger Celine from A Parisian Wardrobe talked about how to dress for your body type. Whether your body shape is 8 or H, she shared insights on how to bring out your assets. The lesson: everyone is beautiful, you just have to learn how to dress to emphasize your beauty!

Meanwhile, Karl, french makeup artist did a demo on skincare routines and how to apply makeup for a glowy look, using the strobbing technique. In a few steps, he showed the enthusiastic crowd how to enhance the light and best parts of your face, while keeping a natural look.

The 2 workshops were full of insights and very participative!

This first edition was a great success and we look forward to the next ones. Follow Celine and Karl on Instagram to stay in the know 🙂

We had decided as a group to focus on creative color for this shoot. I chose to make a wig, because I want to be a wig maker, and I take any chance I get to play in that medium! But also, wigs allow you to do a lot of creative, fun stuff in a very accessible way — something that I want to remind people of. I wanted to go for something galactic, out of this world. My biggest inspiration for this was Prince. I’m a huge Prince fan, and he passed away around the time of the photoshoot (hence the purple make up). I love his wild spirit and his outrageous costumes. How he loved everyone, and was so kind. The tribute is in the makeup, but also in the poses. I wanted them to be unique and fierce but also have some softness. I wanted the wig to be captivating and to be inspiring; it took quite a few hours to custom color, cut, and prep, but I think I achieved that!

Hair from a Technicolor Galaxy

 Comments Off on Hair from a Technicolor Galaxy
Aug 112016

This shoot was part of a creative color session our salon did. This was my take on the galaxy hair trend, which began to be big last Fall, where colorist try to match colors to photos of galaxies and nebulae. I wanted to recreate a swirling galaxy where the lights from stars blend into a mixed burst of colors. This meant applying a selection of neon colors using the star placements pattern, so that once the hair was styled and restyled, different color combinations would shine through. The black backdrop and pinpoint lighting played well with the vivid colors I used. The glistening makeup helped give an extraterrestrial look, as did a cut that allowed the colors to come through in a strong way, with bold separations and angles.
