How to maintain a perfect blond

Blond hair is probably the most popular colour requested at the salon. It can be applied globally or partially with highlights. For an overall global effect, I recommend that my clients plan a visit to the salon every 4-5 weeks, no fail. This allows me to better control the natural pigmentation of hair.

Dia light de L'Oréal

My trick to get rid of unwanted warm reflections: I always refresh  the ends with Dia Light by L’Oréal Professionnel to maintain a cold sheen.  For a partial blonde, I like to alternate hot and cold nuances between Babylight-type highlights, done in freehand, to give a very natural effect that deminds of children hair.




I recommend Shine Blonde by L’Oréal Professionnel to maintain the colour and prevent yellowish tint.

I also recommend to all my blond clients thay get a Power Dose treatment (done at the salon). It’s my secret to keep the hair well hydrated after having been coloured.

An overview of summer trends 2016


For the summer season, long hair and semi-long hair is in. Hair becomes a fashion accessory; different looks are created with the same haircut. The Bardot inspiration is very present. Inspired from the 60’s, we find a cool blond that is often worn with a lot of volume on top of the head and wavy contours on the face.

My favorite product to create this beach look: try Beach Waves by L’Oréal Professionnel.

Curly hair adopts a grunge look this season. We feel the influence of the 70’s in this look. The hair brush against the shoulders and a long fringe gives this look all its style. The secret to beautiful texture for curly hair is hydration.

Try Siren Waves from L’Oréal Professionnel.




The Parisian. A false natural style with a casual look. The hair is worn long and wavy with a fuzzy fringe.

My favorite this season: the Wob.

This cut, popularized in Quebec by Mariepier Morin, is cut at the collarbone. It is worn wavy, parted in the center and without apparent gradation. The hair should be thinned out to get a nice flow. The Wob is so versatile, it adapts to all types of faces and morphology. It is easy to comb and has the advantage of being easy to tie up on bad hair days.

Quick styling tip for the next day, use Savage Panache to ruffle and restore volume to your hair.

A case study by Gaz Métro

Article published on Gaz Métro website:

U Salon Boutique

After their former premises were engulfed in flames, associates at U Salon Boutique rose from the ashes with a new brand image, a reimagined customer experience and more efficient energy choices.


USalon-exterA brand new image

Many businesses are decimated by fire, but when Tristan Charbonneau, François Charbonneau and Yanick Brisebois lost their beauty salon in 2014, it was more of a crystallizing experience. After making-do in borrowed space for a few months, they joined forces to create a whole new kind of salon in Saint-Bruno.

“We changed our name and our logo and created an integrated experience that tends to every aspect of our clients’ visit,” said Tristan Charbonneau. The new salon includes a shop, a café and a spa—all under the umbrella of the letter “U” to symbolize unity and uniqueness.


U Salon Boutique received $4,700 in grants.

U Salon Boutique saved 30% compared to using electricity.


Space, hot water and dry towels

With 40 employees and 800 clients a week all moving through a 2,400 square-foot area, U Salon Boutique had no choice but to opt for natural gas. “Our gas consumption costs less than oil or electricity and the equipment takes up less space… and that’s a good thing because we pay per square foot!” said Tristan Charbonneau.

Sylvain Lamy, a Gaz Métro Authorized Partner, installed a water hot heater, a furnace and two dryers in the salon with the support of a $4,700 grant. Now U Salon Boutique has become more effective and more economical. “Hot water flows and towels dry twice as fast. Those are two big advantages for a hair salon,” Charbonneau concludes.



“Our competitors are probably pulling out their hair without natural gas.”
– Tristan Charbonneau, associate, U Salon Boutique
