I have been cutting, coloring and styling Stephanie's hair for close to a decade. Not only is she one of my biggest inspirations she is my partner in crime when it comes to hunting upstate NY antiques and vintage. We have shared many laughs, coffees and Sunday drives together. She is my number one gal, always ready to step up and help me vend my merchandise at my burlesque shows and be an amazing sounding board of honesty and reason. She is my bestie. Steph wears her hair short which shows off her killer profile and gorgeous long neck. Sometimes in-between salon visits she will color her hair at home. We took her red-brown, uniform box color and triple processed her with multiple tonings. It is pretty much impossible to go from dark brown to blonde in one night - but she was up for the many hours of work it takes to make it perfect. Foiled her, with balayage in between the foils. Rinsed. dried. Changed the direction and foiled her again and toned the highlighted hair in between with a level 7, slate blue, gray blonde. Rinshed. Aggressively cut her fringe. Dried and then toned again with 2 fashion colors. Styled with my marcel iron and brushed her curls. We decided to call it - punk rock princess Di. I have complete hair envy.
Hare and Bristle has a wall! Slow and steady she is coming together. I am so lucky to have an amazing team of engineers, artists and contractors to help make my vision a reality. Here are some pictures of the renovation!
<3 Hare and Bristle
Ausra is an all around super woman. Not only does she have a 9-5 day job, she is a mother, wife, women's rights activist, stand up paddle boarder AND a Lithuanian food blogger! (Follow her here http://vaikaivanile.com/ )
I have been cutting Ausras hair for years and when she approached me and Alison Dollaway from A.Doll Photography about doing her head shots, it was an obvious no brainer. I have always loved cutting Ausra's hair into a bold, head turning pixie cut. To have the opportunity to make her up and style her was an unforgettable experience. You can not deny the swan like qualities of her long, lean neck and arms. She has beautiful green eyes and a smile that melts. She is true beauty inside and out.
So pleased to announce that Hare and Bristle is well on it's way! Can't wait to work with Ben Marlan and Mike Sogun of Acme Residential to get my baby off the ground!
So exciting to see my dreams become reality! Speaking of dreams........Check out the wallpaper I am using for the reception. D.R.E.A.M.Y

Testimonial - Danielle is amazing! I had my heart set on pinup style hair for my wedding day - not exactly your traditional bridal look. I was referred to Danielle and knew it was a perfect match when she said her motto is "natural pin up." I wanted elaborate hair but makeup that looked natural and not costume-y with my naturally pale skin. Danielle made me feel comfortable that she was the stylist for me for our very first contact.
Danielle was very easy to communicate with and always prompt in responding ... even though she's a busy stylist and I was trying to arrange the details of my big day from two timezones away! She was very accommodating with my hair trial so close to my wedding day and had no problem coming out to the home my bridesmaids and I were getting ready at the morning of. We all looked amazing and I cannot recommend Danielle enough! I would work with her again in a heartbeat! She made me feel so gorgeous! Thanks Danielle, a million times over!!!
