A Conversation with Jessica Soler

Written by the Oribe Team for their professional newsletter in December, 2014.

At the age of 25, Jessica Soler was a recent hair school grad with only junior experience in salons.

Fall Tips & Trends from Lina Petrova at Salon Red Candler Park


Working in the hairdressing industry definitely means that we need to be updated on the current trends constantly.

For this upcoming Fall 2016, I noticed a lot of different kinds of braids on the fashion runway. From something so simple and elegant to avant garde.

Wherever you get your braid-spiration, there’s many styles to master before the Fall rolls around. Ask your stylist for easy ways to style your hair with braids this upcoming season!!!
