New Position at work, New Look for Andrea

Andrea won a transformation with the Claude Lane gang via Evvemi. Evvemi asked us to be on the ground floor of creating a system that will screen and vet stylists so that each client can find the right stylist for them. To drive awareness of their service, Evvemi has been arranging and documenting 'before and afters' with partner salons. This session was done by Krystal and Shirley.


New Promotion, New Look

Andrea wanted to mature her look. Recently promoted at her job, she was looking to get something that would live up to her new management position. It had been a while since her last haircut, so she had a lot of length to work with. She also had an ombre that was overdue for a refresh.  Andrea came in with the idea of going bright blonde, but after consulting about her hair history and learning about her maintenance routine, she agreed that this wasn’t the right direction for her. We opted for a soft natural balayage that better suited her look and lifestyle.

We also decided to go in a different direction with her cut. 8 – 10 inches would come off to make a shoulder-length “lob” with some texture on the ends. Because we were taking so much hair off, Shirley did a ‘rough chop’ before the color application. This would save time Krystal from needless coloring, but more importantly allow her to place the color in accordance to the final look.

Krystal started with a toner to deepen, cool and even out her base color.  This was at the shampoo bowl. Back in the chair, she did some balayage highlights, with a focus on brightening around Andrea's face and softening the overall look. This was followed by a standalone Olaplex treatment to keep her hair healthy. 

Shirley finished the cut and made sure to show Andrea what products to use at home. With much less length, and the additional texture, it will be much easier for her to style!

Andrea was thrilled with the new look. The transformation was emotional for all of us, and shows how a change in our hair can really have an impact, and can be a way to mark a transition in our lives.

Shelley’s dog-friendly gratitude party

Recently, while Shelley was out of the country, her doggo Baci, got loose while staying at the sitters. It took a couple of days, but Baci was successfully found, thanks to the outpouring of support from the community.


It's scary to love your pet companion — and even more so when you are helpless to do anything about it!  To show her support for everyone who helped while she couldn't, Shelley threw a Neighborhood Gratitude Party. As she is active in the animal rescue community, Shelley also put together an auction with goodies to benefit Friends of SFACC (San Francisco Animal Care & Control). All the funds raised will help maintain the great programs that the organization offers the pets (and pets-to-be) of our city.


As our city continues to develop, it's heartening to see neighbors still looking for one another!

Sofia was unhappy with a previous balayage. It was too brassy and not natural, too chunky and spotty. she wanted a more platinum tone and natural hairline. She also didn't want to have to maintain the highlights.


I only remembered to take a 'before' photo near the start of the balayage :\  The color, especially this side, was pretty spotty. It doesn't really show in this pic though. It was also mighty yellow — that's not just the lighting in the pic.


I did a partial balayage using Pravana. I made sure it wasn't too heavily colored at the root, and overlapped the previous color to really lighten the mids and ends. This will give Sofia a longer period before she has to any maintenance. I toned with Shades EQ to get that to make the overall more "white".


Client was happy 🙂

How to help with the North Bay Fires

We are saddened about the fires happening just a few miles from home, in the North Coast area. Lives have been lost, houses and businesses have been destroyed. We want to help in these tragedies, but it's not always easy to know how to do so. Here are a few options, below. It's definitely a non-exhaustive list. If you think of any other good ones, let us know.


Let people know if you are safe

If you were in an area impacted by the fires, or know someone who was, Safe and well provides a place for you to register so that others can check on your status.


Volunteer


Donate Funds
Many shelters have sufficient supplies. MONETARY DONATIONS MAY BE BEST, as families can use them to purchase what they need. Read this article for some more thoughts on this.


Unlike material donations, cash involves no transportation costs, shipping delays, or customs fees. It also enables relief organizations to spend more time providing aid by spending less time managing goods," — USAID

  • Red Cross: choose California Wildfires in the drop-down menu. You can also call 1-800 RED CROSS; or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation
  • United Way Wine Country
  • There are multiple crowd-funding campaigns soliciting donations.
    GoFundMe recommends this campaign 
    Petaluma-based Fundly recommends this one
  • Santa Rosa has its own YouCaring page for Tubbs Fire victims


Donate Goods

  • Redwood Empire Food Bank is accepting donations of food and money and also needs volunteers. Non-perishable and ready-to-eat items can be taken to 3990 Brickway Blvd., in Santa Rosa
  • Idle Hand in San Francisco is serving as a drop-off location and make trips to Wine Country to deliver them
  • Our Neighbor Cinta Aveda is collecting donations at 343 Kearny Street for all things toiletries, blankets, pillows, baby food and more.
  • Love on Haight is giving away free clothes to fire victims, if you are looking for a quick place to donate.


Lodging

  • Airbnb is helping members offer housing to evacuees
  • Love on Haight is also helping to arrange lodging for evacuees



Pregnancy Support

Brigid's Well Center in Sebastopol. Offering support to women at all stage of pregnancy, and also accepting  pregnancy, birth & baby needs (diapers, maternity clothes, baby clothes, sanitary supplies etc).


Undocumented Workers

Someone pointed out that there are many (likely "undocumented") workers in the vineyards, farms and other places needing services. They are not likely to report to a shelter, and therefore are outside the range of care our communities are offering. They gather in groups by the roadside in the more rural backroads. If you are driving up Sebastopol way (or surroundings) carry some large jugs of water, food, blankets, socks, etc to hand out if you are so moved. Don't expect a conversation or eye contact. These folks are scared on many levels.


Pets & Animals

Animal shelters and rescue need crates, pens, dog food, livestock fencing, bedding, animal feed, water, and masks (which are sold out locally)

They also need fosters! Between Hurricane Irma and now the fires, just Hopalong has rescued 100s of cats and dogs in the last month. Fostering is easy and rewarding. The organization provided everything you need.


Advice

Advice for victims, from someone who lived through the 1991 Oakland Hills fire:

  1. Contact their insurance companies. Most will cover hotel stays, apart from the usual coverage.
  2. Call their credit card companies and have the last 3-6 months of their purchases reimbursed back (get a police report that testifies you are a fire victim).
  3. If you are renting and are a minor, your parents' home insurance may cover your belongings (this is how I got my stuff reimbursed through my parent's home insurance even if they lived 300 miles away at that time).
  4. Call your chain retail stores and see what they can offer to fire victims (I remember GAP gave away free clothes to fire victims up to $500 per person...yes my roommates and I were like walking GAP ads but literally that was all the clothes we had).
  5. Get as many resources and information as you can and keep passing the info around. You will see the kindness of strangers and the familial treatment of friends.

evo hair products seduce the staff

It's about time we introduce you to our product crush, EVO

First they seduced our colorist Krystal with their hair products; then they worked their way through the rest of the Claude Lane staff, until we had no choice but to start carrying the line.


File their products under They Just Work. And, Great for Cocktailing. We like them for both those things, and also for the brand's verve and integrity.


 

"evo steps outside the normal realm of truth-stretching invention in a 'wake up and smell the coffee' crusade of twisted honesty - designed to make people think. and so comes the catch phrase - saving ordinary humans from themselves™. 

 


Irreverent packaging, quality product

Inside these bottles of personality, you'll find luxurious products that give professional results while respecting the environment. What you won't find are sulphates, parabens, dea, propylene glycol.


In evo own words, "You won't find unnecessary, over-marketed ingredients; no imaginary technology, no myths, no gimmicks."

Other good stuff:

  • All damaged evo stock is given to homeless shelters. a simple idea and a practical idea!
  • All evo packaging is 100% recyclable.
  • evo offsets its carbon footprint by purchasing government accredited carbon offset credits.
  • Where possible, evo uses natural ingredients and continues to reformulate and substitute synthetics with naturals when an equivalent is available.
  • evo is not tested on animals.

But especially: the product make your hair look and feel good!

Hey, stop by 9 Claude Lane, test out the products!

Touch and smell, put some in your hair, ask all your questions to our stylists. Come by before  10/19, and we'll sweeten the pot with 10% off your evo purchase


We also need to tell you about evo's Fab Pro color care system. But we'll leave that for another post...

Claude Lane Opening Day Workshops


Atelier Emmanuel Salon de Coiffure at 9 Claude Lane is now open


After months of work to get ready for business, and a soft opening back in July, we are now officially on the scene to get hair done at 9 Claude Lane! We made our grand opening party an all day affair, with beauty workshops from noon to 6p, followed by social hour until late in the evening.


While enjoying one of five boozy specialty cocktails, our guests were treated to a mix of jazz inflected lounge music by Hit Waves Unplugged, local artist Serge Gay Jr. completing painting on our fab mural, and nibbles from Café Claude.


With 300 rsvps, we knew to expect a strong turnout, and all of you did not disappoint! Thank you to everyone who came by 🙂

Beauty workshops launch our Grand Opening

While we were tempted to have an all-day, all-night party for our Grand Opening, we wisely decided to devote the daytime portion to offering workshops to the public. Different stylists and esthys covered all kinds of education for people wanting to up their styling game.


We started with a how-to for Beachy Waves, led by Abby. She was a little nervous to present her first class; but she pulled it off without hitch.

Guys Grooming 2.0: in the same spirit, Shirley officiated a styling how-to focused on men. She introduced them to styling products and tools they might not think of using.

A full day, and a great way to segue into the evening's party! One of the best parts of doing these workshops was filling the space up with so many. We're just a couple of months into this second location, and it's was rewarding to get a taste of what it's going to like as we get up and running.

We’re adding a second location!

Coming Soon

We’re happy and proud to announce that Atelier Emmanuel is again expanding!

After 15 years in business, and already 5 years at our Stockton location, a unique opportunity fell on our lap a few months ago and we made the decision to go for it. This will allow us to grow our team, keep on developing our craftsmanship and offer you more beauty services. It’s been in the works for a while now and it’s coming together little by little (Here’s the scoop: opening a small business in SF is tough). The new spot is just a few blocks away on the FiDi side of downtown. One of the many exciting things about the place is that it's street level — a first for us.

We’re working hard on making a beautiful and welcoming space for you, and you'll be the first to know as soon as we have an opening date. Thank you for your continued support and patronage, we couldn't do it without you.
