The demand for shorter hair is bigger than ever. There are so many varieties of a chic, short cut – be it a pixie, bob, lob, or crop. You get a lot of versatility with a shorter look, and it can be styled to appear softer or stronger. It’s also a great option if you’re someone who likes to request something a little different with each haircut appointment. Butterfly senior stylist Vanessa Fernandez says she loves seeing the hot trend come to life in its own unique way for every client. “They’re already beautiful, but they leave feeling empowered!”
If your hair feels a bit too grown out, and is becoming hard to style – it’s time for a shape up. Here are a few of Vanessa’s recently cropped creations for some inspiration!

Any day now, I’m due to give birth! I’ve learned that being pregnant inspires new thoughts and ideas like never before. Along the way, you’re told stories from everyone you meet, and you learn that there’s always more to learn… I find myself with a new outlook these days, practicing new habits and thinking differently. And once the baby is born, I know there will be more of everything! Since it’s all so fresh, I feel it’s the perfect time to get personal and share some of the knowledge I’ve discovered about expecting.
For 20 years I’ve been behind a chair, listening to the wonderful advice of women and their experience with being a mother. These are stories of life, struggle and of joy – including some details I might not have needed to hear. One thing I can say with certainty is that we all have different bodies and therefore unique experiences; from our skin, hairs, internal processes – and let’s not forget the hormones! We all react differently. At the end of our journey, we have one special thing in common, motherhood. Even when the baby is not yet born, feelings from mental to physical begin to materialize. You learn to see things in a different light from the strong bond that’s created and it really connects you with the meaning of being protective. We develop the desire to want to learn better ways of taking care of ourselves and how to protect our families.
What I strongly feel is that you should never, ever neglect yourself throughout the journey. The better you feel, the better everyone around you feels. I’ve found that a great pregnancy has everything to do with feeling happy and having the right attitude, as it does with making healthy, safe choices. My story is that of a woman in her 40’s, who is feeling truly lucky to live out the blessing of having a baby – and I’m telling it through a series of posts and tips called, “Kattia’s Mommy Diaries.” Because taking care of yourself starts with the small things…
This intricate, crafted look is the definition of fancy! Best left for the pros, this is elegance swept to one side – for standing out at a formal occasion or at a party with a black tie dress code.
“ Being the CEO of My Image Expert – an image and fashion consulting firm with offices in most US cities – I am constantly helping people change and upgrade their personal and professional image. Every week, I probably average about 3 makeovers which includes a change of hair color and style. It was time for me to orchestrate my own personal makeover and Butterfly helped me achieve my look! After being a blonde for seven years, I noticed that the texture of my hair was becoming very dry and brittle. Maintaining the roots every 3 months was not an issue but I started to wonder what my natural hair color actually looked like. When I arrived at Butterfly to see Keith, I brought a photo to show him exactly what I wanted to do with my color. It was a drastic change that I was more than ready to embrace. Keith has been my colorist for the past 3 years so when I showed him the photo, he was a bit shocked. He explained a few things and after some deliberation, he came up with a plan of attack. Several hours later, I was a brunette/honey blonde. Keith did such an amazing job implementing my look and took his time to focus on all the details. It was such a big change for me and I was a little nervous but I could not have been any happier with the results. “
– Erika Chloe, Personal Stylist / My Image Expert CEO
” Erika was determined about a dramatic change. At first, I was reluctant and wanted to just add lowlights to bring more dimension and depth to her blonde hue. I was concerned for the integrity of her hair, so I explained the commitment this change would require as far as “living with it,” if she didn’t love the new look. If Erika ended up unhappy, we would have to gradually work back to her blonde. However, the disappointed gaze staring back at me after I shared the safe idea motivated me to rethink my course of action. Undeterred, off we went… I kept it simple. I used LUO color by L’Oreal Professional in shade numbers 5 and 5.3 with 15 volume on her roots. After, I added added LUO 6.3 with 10 volume to the remaining root formula and painted dimension through her ends. After shampooing with Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive – a sulfate-free protective shampoo for color-treated hair – we dried the hair and added a few balayage highlights to the front. Erika felt we nailed it and her excited reaction to the new look made me so glad we went for it after all! Creating a natural-looking, deeper blonde color proved change a good thing – and that’s exactly what this image consultant orders! ”

TEXTURE TWIST PONY
Start with next day hair. Spray from roots to ends with a dry shampoo spray like Oribe’s Dry to create a grip in the hair and absorb oils. If you prefer to start with clean hair, apply a volume-enhancing product at the root area like Lift Vertige and a styling product that helps with keeping structure like Forme Fatale (both by Kérastase) from lengths to ends and blow dry damp hair using a round brush.
Divide the hair into two sections. First is a triangular, “Mohawk” section on top of the head. For your second section, create a tight ponytail in the middle back of the head as your second. Take your mohawk and set crown area with a large curling iron or pin curl set, spraying each section with hairspray for hold. Once set is ready, tease each section with a comb from roots to ends, thinking “high and wild” for body. But don’t worry – next you brush the top softly to smooth and create your shape, choosing your desired height and fullness here. Or, play with twisting the hair away from the face and back towards ponytail base.
You can use more dry shampoo spray as you’re working for a tactile texture. Lightly brush back and pull the top teased section over to one side. Spray with hairspray for secure hold. Drag the second half over to the opposite side and spray. Take the two sections and go under your ponytail, wrapping around the ponytail until you’re left with just the ends of the hair. An easy way to secure these ends is to tie with a clear plastic band under your ponytail. Finish off the sides of your head – or anywhere you’d like more smoothness – with a serum like Kérastase Touch Finale for extra shine.
While women have been requesting the “Michelle Williams” or “Nicole Kidman” makeover left and right, the “Pageboy” is currently another one of our favorite shapes to try for fall. This is a change that’s gorgeous for any rich shade of hair color.
The English inspired haircut is very editorial – a perfectly fashion forward fit with all the leather looks and edgy, 90’s grunge trends we’re seeing in store fronts. It’s a fun alternative to a long bob for anyone looking to make a powerful statement – one that can also translate to soft and feminine with the right outfit coordinating (Hello, do you see those boots?!). Be ready to get noticed because when the cut is done right, it really allows for your facial features to shine! Complimenting pretty eyes, perfect cheeks, and killer jaw lines alike, this hairstyle is for all the women out there who both adored and wanted to be Dorothy Hamill (wasn’t she just the coolest?). Or for those of you hoping to channel the sexy, fiery energy of modern day rocker Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs – a fashion risk taker who has made the hairdo iconic over the years through slightly different varieties and bold personal style with which she’s sported the look. Take a hint from the glossy pages we’re seeing for CÉLINE’s new line and pair accordingly with a soft but powerful ensemble to never fear uttering the words “bowl haircut” again!
Kattia Solano, Butterfly founder and master stylist, on being most surprised by this fall trend:
In such a good way, it’s so unexpected to see beautiful bouquets of rosy pinks on the runway, in magazines, and now sprouting through crowds all over New York City. I find it so refreshing to see this beautiful blush tone brightening up our fall wardrobes! We’re always ready to embrace those grays and deep jewel tones during the fall and winter months, and now we get to add the seasonal addition of a pretty pink hue to soften things up. Just picture the foliage of beautiful fall day and you are wearing a wonderful tone of rose – how chic! Or a dull, winter day and under your coat you have on a dusty, petal pink dress – so very fashionable! The contrast is fabulous and I’m loving the overall more feminine and sophisticated style of the season this year. I like to compliment the shade with hair that is very clean and polished. A sleek ponytail or a smooth blow dry with lot’s of shine should do just the trick!
Every time I turn around lately, there’s another bold woman cutting her locks off – mimicking that “in” haircut that we’re seeing on everyone in the limelight. My favorite is on actress Nicole Kidman, who we’ve seen in the latest Jimmy Choo ad, sporting a sharp new textured bob with a slight fringe. For a stylist, this is one of the most exciting seasons because we kind of live for those big changes – that is, when our clients are ready to make them! Nicole Kidman’s sexy cut inspired a decision I made with our own senior colorist Min Kim to chop away at her hair and create a similar look. We wanted to do something just a little bit different to suit her, as she’s always one to be stylish yet unique. Min’s hair is thick but versatile to style so I used a razor along with a pair of scissors to both remove weight and create playful, bold lines that angle her face. Now our trendsetting colorist can either go polished with a smoother, straight look or wave it up with lots of texture. The great thing about bobs is that they really can be customized to compliment texture and face shape – so there IS a bob or lob out there for you! You can always count on products to help change the appearance of the style, and they can especially be a godsend when you’re looking for more movement and texture. For example, on Min we used the Shu Uemura Volume Maker. It’s a dry shampoo formula in a special powder stick, designed like a bronzer brush, that helps strand by strand application on both roots and ends to create body. It doesn’t flake, or leave any white residue on the hair, and the best part is it easily fits in any purse for a perfect texturizer on-the-go! The change even inspired me to bravely cut a new pair of bangs into my own long locks…and I’m currently obsessed!
Getting right down to Spring’s must-have styles for your hair next year, Butterfly founder and master stylist Kattia Solano helps explain the trends we’ve seen during NYFW in this great 2014 Fashion Show Guide by Oribe Haircare!

Butterfly Studio senior stylist, Vanessa Fernandez:
With great pleasure and so much excitement, I had the opportunity to chop SIX inches of hair off off one of my most favorite clients – fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff! Rebecca had worn her strands long and maintained the look a good amount of time, so we both decided she needed a fresh, fashion forward length that would take her to new territories for the fall and fit right in at NYFW. The long bob that I created for Rebecca suited her effortless, boho chic look and complimented her always awesome style. She is a sexy woman who can rock anything, and she instantly carried her new lob just the same. For Rebecca’s somewhat wavy texture, a cut is best with minimal layers and weight removal using scissors. No razor allowed for her hair type!! A cut like Rebecca’s can be worn styled straight with a flat-iron (as she often prefers) or smooth with a stretched out wave. We all know she likes to keep things clean, simple, and beautiful (just like her designs), and so the same goes with hair products. I only apply one or two, such as Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue oil for conditioning and extra shine or a light finishing spray like the Oribe’s fine hair spray for any unwanted frizz or flyaways. She, like many other NYC women, embraces change… So get inspired, be daring, and chop chop – say “goodbye, long hair” and “HELLO sexy!”
WHAT IT IS
The Essential Mascara delivers seductively glamorous lashes you’ve always wanted! This plush, multifunctional mascara delivers the look of two coats of mascara in one easy application. Defining, dramatically lengthening and curling.
WHY IT’S UNIQUE
•The rich cream formula contains microspheres of Black Cellulo Beads that enhance the depth of the black pigment for the blackest black to achieve the perfectly defined eye.
•This innovative formula contains ultra-soft flexible fibers that are sensually smooth, lightweight and melt into every lash. The custom crescent shaped mascara brush applies the formula generously without touching the lid or clumping the lashes.
•The curved shape allows a precise application, lifting the lash from the base, and makes curling an instinctive reaction.
Must-have! We didn’t think Kevyn Aucoin mascara could get any better but this wand is perfection! For those of you opting for more of the false, fluttery lash look – each and every lash is coated, plumped, and defined for eyes that will not go unnoticed!
One of the Spring 2014 runways we were most excited for was that of Rebecca Minkoff – and it did not disappoint! But before we even mention the style and hair, we’ve just got to say how much we loved Janelle Monae’s performance. She rocked it out! Her playful sound and retro-infused signature look made for a perfect partnership with Minkoff’s stylish and fresh collection – inspired by the energy of colorful icon Frida Kahlo this year. Only Minkoff can combine mesh and florals and have it translate as modern, classic, and clean. The manes of the catwalk were decorated by halos of braids – a trend that doesn’t seem to stop lately – bringing more of that youthful, flirty feel to the clothes. We’re completely behind the look! Braids were done just right with a nice softness to the shape and the right amount of texture. They were angelic without an age limit and had the versatility to be worn dressed up or down, making them really wearable. Our tip is to embrace a little bit of imperfection with the look, wearing your braided style a bit undone and welcoming a few flyways throughout to enhance texture. Adjust this with your fingers once you’ve finished your braid, or use the skinny end of a comb to pull out some height around the root area. Not a braid expert? It’s easier than you may think… Master the look with an appointment for a Butterfly tutorial, add any one of the awesome RM dresses we saw at show’s end, and suddenly you’re runway ready! PS – Don’t forget the handbag!!
Hairdo-with-a-view for KEEP.COM (the new Pinterest for style savvy shoppers)… Floors high in the sky above the city, we had the most fun creating braids, twists, and ponytails which even translated to gorgeous updo looks that the beauties gracing our event chair could wear all day, transition into their fashion week party later that night, and even sleep in for the wedding they were going to the next morning! The location for this fashion week exclusive event had breathtaking views of central park and uptown skyscrapers to truly inspire our creativity. Thanks to the lovely Team Keep and all of the stunning ladies in attendance for an amazing experience!
A topic we’ve all thought about and have our individual preferences for. Read on for Kattia’s official article quote, plus details on how fragrance plays a role in her chair and customizing a salon service . . .
Article via New York Times >>
Some beauty companies today are taking that idea to new extremes, with shampoos, conditioners and other hair products edging into fine-perfume territory. Woodsy musks and spiced-up vanillas are trumping fruity-fragranced lathers, and the bottles have prices to match.
It was around a year ago, said Michael Carby, a perfumer at Givaudan, a major fragrance producer, that he began noticing more requests from corporate clients for sophisticated hair-care scents. Before, the fragrances were typically “a single note, an apple particularly, like in Herbal Essences,” said Mr. Carby, a 20-year industry veteran. “It gives a fresh and clean effect.” But not, apparently, a distinctive one. The last few years, “every shampoo or conditioner fragrance started with an apple or a pear,” Mr. Carby said. “Even a cucumber fragrance had an apple in there in some way, shape or form.”
But now a growing niche of luxury hair-care brands, some founded by famous stylists like Oribe and Serge Normant and sold in salons or upscale department stores, use complex aroma to stand out from the mass-market stuff in drugstores. And for customers, this is yet another potential status marker. “You wouldn’t want to leave the salon smelling like Pert,” Mr. Carby said. While some women these days are avoiding added fragrance in cosmetics applied to the skin (common in their grandmothers’ time but frowned upon by organizations like the Environmental Working Group), they seem more carefree about spritzing chemicals on their hair.
Indeed, Yann Marois, executive director of global marketing at Ojon, which is known for its fragrant conditioners, said that there’s perhaps an unglamorous reason for the stronger scents: the need to mask natural odors. Women today are getting “more and more chemical treatments,” Mr. Marois said. “Because they have damaged hair, they wash their hair less. And to expand time between washes, they want scents that will last.”
He pointed to the popularity of hair oils (like Kérastase’s Elixir Ultime, $42 for 250 milliliters), intended for women with damaged hair, which tend to have the strongest scents, he said.
“The Ojon oil itself has a smell and the product is created over fire, so the scent is smoky, a little bit like coffee,” said Mr. Marois, speaking of the Restorative Hair Treatment ($33 for 3.1 ounces). “Some people loved the scent, but it was also polarizing. To be honest, some people hated it.” Ojon kept the original treatment on the shelves, while working on a milder scent of soft vanilla, which was released a couple of years ago, and sales of the two versions are now about equal, Mr. Marois said. Vanilla is also a component of Thierry Mugler Angel, a best-selling and long-lasting Oriental perfume that has inspired many of the new hair formulas, Mr. Carby said. In fact, Mugler was ahead of the curve, introducing its hair mist, which retails for $39 for 1 fluid ounce, in the early 1990s after a loyal customer of the perfume requested it, said Amber Mitilineos, director of marketing at the company.
More currently, Mr. Carby spent months concocting an intense, decadent-smelling fragrance for Show Beauty, a collection of styling products (including a perfume to be sprayed on hair) to be sold at Bergdorf Goodman starting in late September.Based on English rose and on what he called “a playful crème brûlée,” it is backed by Tamara Ecclestone, the British socialite. The scent was meant to be “powerful and enveloping,” said Ms. Ecclestone’s business partner, Scott Harvey-Nicholls, the chief executive of Show Beauty, but “not completely domineering.” But the heady fumes lingered well into the next day after a reporter tried the treatment oil ($55 for a hefty flacon).
Oribe strove to avoid such an olfactory wallop, said Daniel Kaner, president and a founder of the company. “Most people, the first thing they do with shampoo is they unscrew the cap and smell it,” Mr. Kaner said. “And once the consumer smells it, it then has to pass the first test, which is ‘Does it offend me?’ ”Mr. Kaner and his colleagues settled on a perfume-quality blend featuring yuzu zest (“citrus notes are crowd pleasers,” he said) and butterfly jasmine, the Cuban national flower (Oribe, the Miami-based hairdresser, is Cuban-American).
Founded in 2008, the company this April released a “hair refresher” that works like a sort of deluxe Febreze for the mane. The purse-size spray ($22 for 1.6 ounces) contains cetrimonium chloride, a conditioning agent, and supposedly absorbs odors while leaving the Oribe scent (after a recent dinner out, it did a decent job of dulling eau de Korean barbecue). In May, Kathie Lee Gifford heralded the product on “Today” as one of her favorite things.
Kattia Solano, founder of Butterfly Studio in the Flatiron district, which recently began stocking Oribe, said that “there are people that love fragrance and some that don’t, so I always have my clients smell the product before applying it on them.”
Still, a dedicated fragrance for hair is now in the pipeline, Mr. Kaner said. And it will have competition.
Serge Normant Avah perfume for hair and skin ($60 for 1.7 fluid ounces), which arrived in stores in June 2012, is a concentrated version of the line’s signature musk, jasmine and ylang-ylang scent. It has won over his celebrity clients like Julia Roberts, said Mr. Normant, adding that perfumes are a particular passion of his. “I grew up with Opium and the old Guerlain perfumes,” he said. “They were scents with a point of view.” Several perfume brands, like Marchesa, Narciso Rodriguez, Clean and even Justin Bieber, have also come out with hair mists — perhaps at the peril of passers-by with sensitive noses.
“You want just a hint of something personal,” Mr. Normant said. “The last thing you would want is to give people a headache.”

We’re not surprised that faux ponytails have become so popular. A fake pony has always been a beauty secret of the pros, and we believe every woman should consider embracing one! They come to the rescue on bad hair days and give you more options for bringing out that fab individual style of yours. Besides, who doesn’t like the feeling of longer, thicker hair – even for just a few hours!? Use it as a fashion accessory, a lengthy extention for short haircuts, adding thickness for finer hair types, and even for extra support to keep an updo lasting… They can be just the thing your hair needs to achieve that look you’ve had your eyes on. With Butterfly’s selection of synthetic ponytails, we first match your hair color from a wide range of shades and then customize your pony’s length and texture with an expert cut! Hot tools on low heat can be applied to set the fake strands, creating a sleek pony or bouncy lengths with a curl/wave. Our high quality styles can support going back and forth between both and can last for months with proper care. With so many ways to adjust and play, the attaching piece can feel and look tailor-made for you on any occasion. It’s just another way to help make styling at home very simple – and can be applied in just a few easy steps.
1 After matching your color (we recommend a consultation with an expert stylist or colorist to start) create a tight pony on your own hair, making sure to collect the hair well and apply with a band.
2 Secure the comb attached to your faux ponytail right on top of your real ponytail.
3 Wrap the velcro tightly (this is important) around the base of the pony.
4 Continue to wrap around base until you are left with just the ends and secure with a bobby pin.
5 You’re ready to wear your beautiful, full, long length pony! You can also play with your lengths by braiding, separating into knot sections with small elastics, or using a curling iron on the ends to create more texture or party waves (safe to use with low heat irons, both round and flat). Use the thickness of your extention to your advantage and create full buns/knots, twists, fishtails, etc. The extra hair works as a foundation for hold, keeping the style in tact while giving that picture perfect result. Go ahead and try an online hair tutorial, because now you’ve got the hair for it!
6 (optional) For something different, really transform your look by adding in a faux bang or incorporate a ponytail accessory (like a fun headscarf or chic hair cuff) for the full effect!
Butterfly Studio stylist Dana Tizzio had the priviledge of getting Broadway Legend Patti LuPone’s hair effortlessly perfect for this year’s Tonys! Dana says Patti “just wanted to be herself,” so a sleek blow out with a bit of movement was in order to keep her hair looking easy and not too done. Going with something simple and more “you” can sometimes be the best thing to compliment an outfit overall. You’ll always look the best in something you’re most comfortable in. We fully agree with the hair down decision – her cut is the ideal length to pull off the fresh feeling of the style, especially with the fun fringe! To get straight locks with a bit of bend like Patti’s just right, Dana recommends applying a roller set to prevent any chance of a flat hair moment later on. Setting the hair offers the right amount of body and foundation to keep the style lasting all night. The star product used to achieve the look was Shu Uemura’s Volume Maker, an invisible texturizing powder stick. Dana dusted Volume Maker mainly on the roots to create the right amount of height and help her hair’s texture keep the overall structure of the style in place. “It’s like magic,” she says!
Our Bang Bar gets a remix this Spring/Summer with more styling options and accessories. . .
After its recent success, we wanted to give our award-winning Bang Bar a little makeover! That’s why we’ve added dry styling, faux ponytails, and headscarfs to our menu – giving you a one stop shop to get fashionable and functional. We’re offering tutorials on how to wrap, weave, band, bow or “turban-up” your hairstyle with one of our Butterfly’s one kind collection of handmade headscarves & bands – accessories that we’ve made ourselves, every step of the way. Plus, they are absolutely time appropriate for the warm weather ahead. Head scarves protect hair (and scalp) from exposure and prevent color fade. It’s also a great way to tame bangs from bubbling or control frizz (especially around the hairline)! For hair that’s more fashion forward, we love the idea of weaving the ends of a scarf into your own strands. This adds fullness to a knot or a braid, length to a pony, or simply creates a beautiful twist or ‘do with a little element of print, color, or pattern.
Ponytails are always popular around this time of your for a low maintenance, pulled together look that can be dressed up or down. You already love the idea of wearing a noncommittal clip-in bang so we thought we’d offer the option to add a faux ponytail as an accessory for the night, too! Faux ponytails are an easy way to achieve that perfect fishtail or ponytail you have your eyes set on but don’t necessarily have the length or texture for. We customize ponytails with an expert cut and a style (wavy or straight), and highly recommend adding them in for an updo to keep structure in the hair and get the most out of any look. For a full transformation in one appointment, try a dry styling session and get that braid, ponytail, knot, or twist you’ve had your eye on. Amp it up by adding a matching bang, more lengths, a headscarf, or a mix of it all for a whole new you in minutes!
