Trust The Professional Color Expert at Elise Marcus Salon

I had just moved and was looking for a custom hair color expert in St. Joseph MN. I am very particular so I wanted a professional Colorist. I decided to take a chance and try Elise Marcus Salon. I was so glad I took the chance for my all over hair color appointment.

Ombre Highlight at Elise Marcus SalonI had the best experience when I went to Elise Marcus Salon for my new hair color. I was worried because it was my first time with this salon. All my worries began to fade because Cami Theisen treated me so wonderfully from the very beginning. Cami, my NEW professional hair colorist knew just how to mix my difficult color to perfection. Before Cami began, she consulted with me what the best colors and style for my complexion and facial features are. I was shampooed and Cami was so gentle I knew my hair was going to turn out exactly as I wanted.


Cami is the most professional stylist and I felt so comfortable because she made sure that I was comfortable. My ‘All Over Hair Color’ service at Elise Marcus Salon turned out so wonderfully. I was excited from the moment Cami dried and styled my hair. I felt like a new lady with a great new salon. Trust the professional colorist at Elise Marcus Salon and you will walk away feeling beautiful because you are.

Wrong Colored Highlights!

Any time you color your hair,  you need to consider how it will look with your complexion. Consider highlights having the same effect. If you have dark hair color and light skin tone, a dark auburn or burnt brunette highlight would be a good choice.

Highlights can add a glowing, sun-kissed look to any hair. Even if you have dark hair, you can find the right shade to give you a natural-looking highlight, as well as complement your darker hair.

If you do not go to a professional stylist such as Cami Theisen, a lot can go wrong with highlights. Another ‘pet peeve’ for highlights of ours at Elise Marcus Salon, is using the wrong hair color, leaving the hair color in for too long or just simply not knowing what you’re doing can lead to disastrous results. Instead of stripping the highlights out of your hair (which will ultimately strip your natural hair color) there is a trick that many stylists use to tone down the highlights.

Does this Spark a highlight idea for you?

Stringy or Spotty Highlights

Stringy or Spotty Highlights

Here is another “pet Peeve” from Cami Theisen who is the hairdresser and owner of Elise Marcus Salon.

Stringy or spotty highlights are always a “pet peeve”.  Especially, when there is too much contrast between the base color and the highlights.  Highlights should look as natural as possible, and when they’re too stringy or spotty, they can make Sleeping Beauty look a bit unwashed and mussed-up.

Contact Cami here to schedule a personalized highlight consultation.

Highlights are one of the most difficult hair colors to master

Highlights are one of the most difficult hair colors to master. They can brighten your look, frame your face and compliment any outfit. When highlights are done poorly, they can be consuming and out-dated. Here at Elise Marcus Salon is just one of our favorite “pet peeves.”

Too Chunky – We really don’t think this was ever an official trend. Well, perhaps in the 90’s chunky highlights were in. But it has not been the 90’s for quite awhile.

High contrast, chunky highlights have always been a hair stylists’ nightmare. This style is anything but modern and can be difficult to repair.

Kelly Clarkson, as talented and wonderful as she is, has always been a very bad offender of the chunky highlights. Luckily Kelly has gotten over chunky highlights and gone more natural recently, but like Cami Theisen, from Elise Marcus Salon, says: “we won’t miss the those American Idol days”.

Follow along with us tomorrow and we will tell you another one of our “highlight pet peeves”.
