Hi there! My name is Callie McLaughlin and I’m a junior stylist in Newton. I’m originally from Foxboro, MA.
How many years have you been part of the SalonCapri team?
I’ve been with the SalonCapri family for the past 4 years.
Where did you study previously?
I studied at Tri-County Tech School for Adult Cosmetology. I have also had additional training through classes and certifications from Kérastase, L’Oréal Professionnel and Goldwell.
What do you specialize in?
I love doing color. Especially soft and natural balayage, I think it’s so pretty! I specialize in styling as well.
What inspired you to become a stylist?
Since I was a young girl, I was obsessed with doing my dolls’ hair. Then I moved on to practicing on my little sister’s hair, and from that point forward I knew it’s what I always wanted to do!
Which favorite hair care product has been in constant rotation for you behind the chair?
My favorite product is the Elixir Ultime Oil by Kérastase. It nourishes hair while giving a soft and healthy shine.
Which celeb haircut and/or color are you loving right now and why?
I always love Blake Lively’s hair. She’s always changing it up with classic styles, such as her new transition into bronde. Her looks are timeless.
What are your favorite hair colors or style trends right now?
My favorite hair look right now is a beautiful sombré styled with loose waves, it’s so gorgeous and effortless. I love the look of sombré because it a softer and more subtle version of ombré. It doesn’t have as dramatic of a color difference from roots to end, like traditional ombré, and is flattering for all hair colors.
What advice would you give a client who wants to try something new or different with their hair?
I suggest bringing in pictures of what you want to show your stylist. Pictures are the best form of communication with your stylist, so they can clearly see the look you are going for. It’s extremely helpful!
What hair products should everyone have in their arsenal at home?
I think everyone should own Kérastase Keratine Thermique its amazing for frizz but not too heavy and doesn’t weigh hair down. It also protects the hair from heat styling and makes it easier to style.
