Fall Hair Color: Before and After

Before: Our model has a warm auburn tone, which was a perfect summer trend for her outgoing lifestyle, Lots of time in the sunshine showed off her color tone and made her eyes pop!

With summer coming to an end, LeFore's stylist Jerelle wanted to create a dramatic effect for our model, by deepening and cooling the base color and adding a punch of a cool violet red panels, she is a trendsetter with this fall/winter style!

RICH BRUNETTES This season's browns differentiate themselves with a spectrum of unexpected undertones — Robinson loves light browns with a complexion-flattering caramel reddish tone, while Ott favors cedar browns with hints of light-catching violet.

PLATINUM When it comes to visual impact, platinum is a winner. And that Jean Harlow-esque champagne has been updated for today. "Think Nordic blonde like Michelle Williams," says Victoria Hunter of Whittemore House Salon. "Blonde and bright, but really clean."

OMBRé Popular within every color family, ombré (which means "shadow" in French) is an effect where one color at the roots gradually transitions to another shade at the ends. Negin Zand of Sally Hershberger's L.A. salon reveals how to make it modern: "Add fine highlights at the root, then keep it thicker toward the bottom."

Skin Rejuvenation LED / photo therapy bed

Pro-Sun Skin Rejuvenation Systems use Red light at 640nm to stimulate fibroblasts which cause an increase in collagen and elastin. This increase helps to repair damaged tissue, diminish lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. It also refines pore size to help with acne problems and has been known to fade age spots and help with joint pain.

Benefits of Red Light
Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
Activates fibroblast cells which create collagen and elastin
Improves skin tone
Creates more skin moisture for a more youthful appearance
Increases circulation to the skin
Heals blemishes
Helps repair sun-damaged skin

Using red light skin rejuvenation four (4) 15 minute sessions a week for 3 weeks then once per week for another 4 weeks creates a noticable reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, facial blemishes and crow's feet.
The light was originally studied by NASA and has been shown to stimulate fibroblasts which causes an increase in collagen and elastin, restoring the skin to its more supple state.

Benefits of Infrared Sauna

Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas are said to include

Better Circulation and Increased Energy

The sauna emits FIR energy that is absorbed by human cells, causing a physical phenomenon called "resonance". Thus the cellular activities are instantly invigorated, resulting in a better blood circulation and an overall improved metabolism.

Weight Loss

FIR Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substantial caloric loss in a sauna heat session.

Cardiovascular Health

The FIR Sauna increases heart rate and blood circulation, crucial to maintaining one's health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin, without heightening blood pressure.

Speed Recovery from Injuries

For injuries, FIR generated heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain and reducing the time it takes the human body to recover from an injury.


The quicker metabolic rate causes extra toxic waste products to be purged from the body through the skin, during perspiration. The skin is often referred to as the 3rd kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating 30% of the body's waste.

Stress Reduction & Relaxation FIR Sauna heat treatment before a massage also helps prepare a client by creating an overall relaxing effect. It loosens the muscle tissue so the therapist can do a more thorough and effective massage.

Skin Beautification For that sought after healthy glow, FIR Sauna heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. A FIR Sauna heat bath also provides a mild cleansing of the skin.

Improved Immune System

By creating an "Artificial Fever", FIR heat has a positive effect on the immune system. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever, while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off invading organisms. A FIR heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been known to stop the disease before the symptoms occur

Sharon's work...

Sharon in her new room, hard at work doing MCA on a client. This is about the 8th treatment the client has had. She had SEVERE acne scaring, and has noticed such a remarkable improvement in her skin texture and scars that she has felt confident enough to allow family to see her without make-up for the first time since she was a teenager. What a boost of confidence this new technique has given her!

Sharon LeFore - Owner & Expert on MCA

Before MCA treatment.

1 Month After MCA treatment.

Sharon completed extensive training in the field of Multitrepannic Collagen Actuation or MCA as it is known in the business. Can you help me with my Scar? This is the question that drove Sharon to seek help for her clients. Finding out that there is only a handful of practitioners that currently offer MCA further fueled her desire to solve this problem for her clients. It’s important to realize that no scar can be removed completely, and here are several ways to make scars less obvious and improve their appearance. Multitrepannic Collagen Actuation or Dry Needling refers to a procedure where the effect of the healing process results in a visible change or scar remodeling. Plastic Surgeons Dr. Camirand and Dr. Des Fernandes have written articles on Dry Needling using the method since the late 1980’s to soften and stretch scars following face lifts with noted improvement in the scar and its color. The result in most cases is a smooth flat scar that is less noticeable and the return of pigment (color) to some of the lighter scars. MCA is an entirely natural way of getting the body’s own cells to regenerate and get rid of wrinkles. MCA is a practically-painless, completely risk-free alternative to injecting muscle relaxants such as Botox. Although MCA uses a very fine needle, nothing is injected and the treatment causes a micro-trauma to the skin, in order to force it into a state of self repair. Our bodies are equipped with a DNA system and, when injured, the body sends out the correct signals and tools which enable it to repair itself and heal. Some patients notice the benefit after just one treatment; others may require up to three treatments, one month apart. As you puncture the skin, you create a wound which heals in three phases inflammation, proliferation and tissue remodeling. When the needle enters the skin, it starts the inflammation phase. Fibroblasts cells that give rise to connective tissue, move into the affected area and start to produce collagen and elastin to help the healing process. Although the procedure does damage the skin and cause minor bleeding, the skin is essentially regenerating itself. Following a treatment, the patient is left with a fine red scratch mark, which forms a scab and heals within 5-7 days. Away from the face, MCA is also excellent for treating stretch marks or other body scars it can also be used to help soften scars caused by less than perfect face lift surgery. One great advantage of MCA over other similar treatments is that is does not cause any permanent damage to the skin and the healing phase. Call for consultantion appointment.

My husband just got home from his "Father's Day Contest" massage you so graciously gifted him for the story I posted. He needed this so much this week more than any other. He had a rough week and even this morning and early afternoon, he was SO worn out and exhausted that he was dragging out of the house to go to his appointment. I almost didn't recognize him when he walked in the door. He LOVED his massage!!!! He's been playing with the little 3 year old I babysit since he got home. He was so impressed with Jacob and his professionalism that he bought a package deal to get 2 more!!! I was shocked he spent the money but, you know what??? I am so pleased with the relaxed, happy man that came home that I do NOT mind!!! :-D Thank you to everyone at LeFores for making Kent feel like he "died and went to Heaven". Those were his exact words
