Color Your Roots The Easy Way @ Home – 2020

Color Your Roots The Easy Way @ Home - 2020

Video by Sherri Jessee

This YouTube Video with Covid Kit Instructions by Sherri Jessee, one of many she has produced on hair and makeup, shows you how to color your roots the easy way at home.  Of course, unless you are a lucky client of the Sherri Jessee Hair Salon in Virginia, you will need to ask your own hair colorist to be kind enough to send you your formula and a hair color brush, or to tell  you where you can purchase your color, developer and a brush.  But hoping you have a caring colorist, here is what you can do, step by step with many details how to do this.  For How To, CLICK BELOW

The alternatives are spray on or dust on a temporary hair color cover, which will last until you shampoo your hair.  I use Color Wow Root Cover Up, which is easy to apply.

Inspo. Hair Design On Face - 2019

Photos: Nathan Mays

Fab, flirty, fantastic. Gelled kiss curls spiral on the face in an intricate design, by Sherri Jessee, who brings another whole concept idea for drop-dead entrances, fashion photography, fashion runways, red carpet.  Even one kiss curl is better than a boring bare face, however beautiful! The hair does need to be one length, but the idea could also work with a one length bob or most updos. The possibilities are endless. First published in my column for the December issue of Peluquerias Magazine, where there are many more hair inspo ideas.

Isn’t She Lovely – 2019

Posted by on Jan 26, 2019 in Helen's Blog | 3 comments

This pull through crown braid by Sherri Jessee is not only very pretty, shows up big, but is also secure, each loop being secured by a tiny elastic.  The remaining hair was wrapped on a 3/4 inch Curling Wand for texture – "great for curling long hair quickly," advised the hairdresser, whose model here is Miss Virginia Teen USA 2016, Gracyn Blackmore.  This photo got a full page in the January 2019 issue of Peluquerias Magazine published in Barcelona.  Hair & Makeup: Sherri Jessee, Sherri's Salon, Bristol,VA … Photo: Nathan Mays

Sexy Short Hair Is Now Trending - 2017

Photos: Jason Setiawan

Inspiration.  Short hair is trending – it suddenly seems refreshingly new as everyone seems to be wearing their long hair in almost the same few styles, losing the uniqueness that they could have.  Take these short styles by Sherri Jessee, looking fashionably trendy and as sexy as any long hair. The hair with movements on the left was achieved with a plethora of  large clips to “set” the hair before brushing out and with a 3/4″ curling rod close to the roots for volume and lift on the right. The bold red lip on the left and the soft pink lip with a brush of gold powder on the right both work with the pale blonde hair. These styles got a full page in my column for Spain’s Peluquerias Magazine.

Any bride would love this smooth shiny style with romantic large loose waves for her wedding day. Long lasting beautiful texture was created by Sherri Jessee. Sherri’s Hair Salon, using a 1 ¼” ceramic curling iron. “Be sure to spray each section with a heat protecting spray before you curl it,” she advises, “and clip each section on base. Allow the hair to cool, brush out the dry set with a soft bristle brush. Form the hair into soft waves and spray for shine and hold.” – First page of Helen Oppenheim  Peluquerias Magazine column, May 2017  issue.

An adorable and very charming little veil attached to a headband is for the romantic fashionable bride. Sherri Jessee, who creates the most beautiful bridal hair, likes to create shapes that “real” brides request so she added this veil to hair gently curled, then misted very lightly with hairspray. Who wants to wake up to stiff hair the next morning?
