Lately it seems we all about the shag! Shagged LOB haircut that is!
First of all let me say, the LOB haircut became SO popular, because the younger generations associate a “bob” as a “mom cut” or as someone who is “older.” But lets be real, a lob haircut is a version of a “classic” bob; therefore, the lob is a bob. So from here on out in this blog, I’m going to reference it as a bob haircut. And because so many people are still rocking their bobs (of ALL different lengths), but feeling up for a change, adding some shaggy layers is the ultimate client and stylist dream when we talk about having a shared reality of what is possible for a new haircut option. Clients actually can feel like they’ve gotten a change, but still have the comfort of their usual length, and hairstylists feels like they are actually accomplishing a change rather than the usual trim. It also gives us stylists an opportunity to chat new styling options, so fun!
Lately the hairstyle trends being messier have offered so many more options to our always classy and in style bobs. Bob haircuts have become shaggier, more texturized, so much edgier looking. Straight, wavy, or curly, whether natural, or curl added with a wand or iron of some sort, add their own custom style to this do as well. Loosening up some of that hair by adding texture has really made it easier to pull off these looks in such a fashion forward kind of way.
Soft wind-swept styled shag:
This can be achieved air drying your hair. Try a cream such as Pureology Hydrate Air Dry Cream, it adds moisture to keep fly-aways under control, and allows your hair to dry with soft and natural flips, and kicks. Tuck a side behind your ear while pulling out the “side burn” area of the hair. Finish with adding Pureology Style & Protect Soft Finish hairspray to softly hold your style in place for the day, while you protect your color as well!
Beach wavy shag:
Style this with a wand, or favorite curling iron of your choice. Start the curls around the widest area of your head for some great fullness, for an elongated curl look, give the curl a tug once you let it fall off the iron to stretch it out. Set your curls with a texture finishing spray such as Spray Putty from Fat Boy and use a scrunching motion with your hands for the ultimate texture & volume in your hairstyle.
Naturally curly shag:
Who said curly girls can’t have fun with their haircut? They’re so wrong! These sweet shaggy layers create so much versatility and shape within a haircut for every type of curly girl. For you really wild curly girls try Pureology Taming Butter as a leave in conditioner, curly softener, and layer some Pureology Uplifting Curl Spray over for some hold. Let air dry, or diffuse for added volume and you will have a beautiful curly shag haircut that you will for sure get compliments on!
So no matter what your style or type of hair, the shagged lob can be customized to fit you! Want to chat more about this new trend? Book an appointment at #MMCstyle for the right style for your life style!

Lower Classic Hairstyles – Mallory Cook at #MMCSTYLE
For the year of 2019, carrying into the fall/winter time I’ve noticed a ton of different kinds of formal styles, even translated into everyday hair styles being a lower hairstyle. Whether that be a low ponytail, bun, or easy twisted style, a low style seems to automatically imply a more soft, romantic, timeless kind of vibe to your look.
A low pony tail can be a quick, sleek style for the office, or a curled, softly pulled back look for a more formal occasion. A low pony tail is an amazing way to get out of an extra day of hair washing as well, yet still look put together. Use some dry shampoo, like Pulp Riots Berlin Dry Shampoo around your hairline to absorb any extra oils & give you a fresh, clean scent, and sometimes it is necessary to use a hair powder such as Redken Powder Grip 03 in the crown to keep your hair from sticking to your head and looking too flat.
A low bun can be a simple, cleanly done look for a day at the office for a professional look, or this can be appropriate for a formal occasion you are attending. A more intricate low bun with twists and sections pinned over each other can add a more formal look for a bride, or other black tie style occasion. Low buns are nice because they feel and are secure, no one will worry about any pieces popping out of place during an event. The low bun is the base for a lot of styles, because it is such a classic look. Feel free to add a braid to this style, whether their be a braid as more of a part around the hairline, or braid a piece to twist around the bun. There are endless options to this style. A great strong hair spray, I like Pulp Riot Toronto because of it’s ability to hold, but not look sticky, will help to keep your bun looking polished once styled!
Low twisted style:
These can be the most fun styles, and are so customizable. Add in a loose braid, pin organically, have fun with it! These types of hair styles are amazing to accessorize with hair jewelry or flowers randomly pinned in. They can be so elegant and timeless, or simple and casual. Leave out face framing pieces for an even softer, romantic, undone feel. You can achieve a more simple twisted style by pulling hair back loosely, letting some pieces fall our around your face, and randomly take pieces from the pony tail and pin up, or be as intricate as you want by taking smaller sections and twisting them, pull apart the twists and pin as you like how it is looking. I like to use a working hair spray while executing these styles, Pulp Riots new Zurich hair spray has become a favorite of mine for this.
Hairstyles To Wear For Any Occasion
These low styles are my favorite to wear, and to execute as a hair stylist. The wearer of them I always get the vibe of feels comfortable because they still do feel like themselves, sometimes people if they’re wearing something too different can make them feel off and uncomfortable. The purpose of any hair style is to improve on how one feels they look, so these help me to achieve the ultimate goal!
2019 Hair Product Spotlight by Mallory Cook of MMC Style
Discover Pulp Riot’s new launches and best sellers right here in Madison, WI. In the interest of full disclosure, I do sell professional hair color, hair care, and hair styling products here on my website.
In continuation to a previous post all about Pulp Riot Munich hair serum and Toronto firm hold hairspray, I’ve picked another couple of favorites to write about. The next two: Pulp Riot Liverpool root lifter and Glasgow sea salt spray. Now that summer is over, I’m feeling hair products that are going to provide volume, as well as a strengthening hold to combat the drier air that is to come.
Pulp Riot Liverpool:
Pulp Riot Liverpool is a root lifter that is an easy to apply, spray in foam. While your hair is damp, lift your hair up around the top of your head and crown area and spray, focusing on the root area. Gently massage in and then style as usual. I have had a lot of success using this on fine and coarse hair, it offers a lightweight voluminous effect without getting sticky. I love even after a couple of days of styling hair with Liverpool the hair is still lightweight and airy feeling. Sometimes what I will suggest with second or third day hair is to just add a bit of water to the root area on the top of your head and re-blowdry style quick. It nicely reactivates the Liverpool in the hair for an extra day of wear.
You can purchase off my website for in store pickup at the time of your choice, with your next appointment, or have it shipped to you.Purchase
Pulp Riot Glasgow:
Pulp Riot Glasgow is a sea salt spray with multiple hair styling attributes. It adds texture, volume and has a light hold. I love to recommend this for clients with natural curl, or who like to curl their hair often, as well as for my short hair cut clients for added volume and texture. Not only does this product smell amazing, it also has sea salt and sea kelp extract which helps promote naturally healthier and stronger hair. Styling your hair and taking care of it at the same time? Sign me up! Glasgow can be applied to damp, and/or dry hair and will also add in enhancing natural curl, great for my curly girls in the winter whose curls get lazier in the dryer air.

The hair trim “sticker-shock” haircut price
Have you ever booked, or asked your hair stylist for “just a trim,” and had sticker shock when in the end the cost is your usual haircut price? I’d like to put you at ease that if you are going to a hair stylist you trust, you are not overpaying for a “trim” priced as a haircut.
A trim is a haircut
First of all, a “trim” is not some kind of special, short-cut service, and you should be thankful it is not. Your stylist, as long as you are going to someone who is skilled in their craft and actually cares, will still take the time to carefully section your hair, check for any adjustments needed on the ends of your hair strands and within the layers of your hair based on how it’s grown out. They will check for thick areas that could use a touch-up on texturizing of any kind. So this means: this is NOT JUST a trim.
The cost of a haircut is what is left on your head, not what is on the floor
Our hair does not grow the same all over between visits. Think of how much further the hair from the top of our head has to travel than hair from the nape (neck area) of our head. Also, with all of our strands of hair being at different growth phases at different times, it does not overall grow out even! So a stylist will keep this in mind, as well as your head shape and desired style of haircut while trimming away the unhealthy ends of your hair to do any kind of shaping. While also making adjustments to the abundance of hair, whether your someone with excess amounts of hair that likes to have it thinned during an appointment, or someone who likes slightly to severely shattered ends in your style, all of these things need to be adjusted at the time of a haircut/trim appointment.
Overall, you don’t want a haircut change if you’re asking for a trim, so is a trim necessary?
Yes! Our hair from any kind of damage, sun, heat styling, color, every day wear and tear, gets dry and will start splitting up on the ends. It’s best to keep up with those regardless of your hair goals, whether you are trying to grow it out, or maintain a particular look/length. Not keeping up with your split hairs will result in them splitting further up the hair strand, which not only makes you totally lose the look of the style of your hair, it leads to your hair looking, dull, dry and fuzzier than usual. It also helps to keep your hairstyle in a nice shape, rather than just a motionless, frumpy mop on your head.
While at your haircut trimming appointment:
Your stylist will check in with you on all things to help support you and how you’d like to wear your hair. Making sure you have the right products at home, the right tools to achieve your styles you like to wear, and make sure the direction your going with your haircut is right for you!
What should you expect when walking into a Salon?
In the salon industry, even in small metro areas there is a salon, salon and spa, salon suites, etc on every corner. Because of this, clients have come to expect much more of the “VIP” or “ME DAY” salon experience over just receiving the service alone. From the initial greeting to their close out, there’s many steps we need to cover along the way to make sure our guests want to come back. I believe anyone working in a salon or for themselves in a salon suite should take note. You’re never too cool to greet your clients with an amazing attitude and service.
Start with the right salon greeting.
Starting with a pleasant “hello, welcome, or a GENUINE how are you?” Goes a long ways, and is something that is so surprising people are missing the mark on. Then taking the moment to find out who they are, are they checking in for a service, are they trying to buy product or looking for info. Then still making them feel welcome, giving them a tour, while along the way showing how you can service them in many ways better than the next salon down the street. Offer them a drink, have plenty of options for everyone, even dare I say an adult beverage such as a glass of wine or a beer from a local craft brewery (obviously only offer this to those you know are of age).
In short, make them feel important! Acknowledgement includes: handshakes, hugs, salutes, funny cheek side to side kissy thing…it’s all what makes you and your client comfortable immediately. No matter what they’ve walked in the door for.
TRAINING is Necessary!
Whatever your processes you have in order for how your guests are talked to and sold to on the phone, how their handled in person, to the order of things taken care of when you’re checking a client out, EVERYONE needs to be on the same page in your salon. This isn’t taking away their ability to be personable, it’s making sure one guest isn’t getting offered up more of a greeting, making sure you don’t have a staff member just offering every single person discounts in order to be able to sell, etc.
Everyone should have the same knowledge, integrity, and respect for your business and your customers. This makes for an experience that your guests come to expect, and you want to make sure every single visit you and your staff are knocking those expectations out of the park, not just getting lazy because “oh this client has already been here a few times, we can drop the ball.”
Think about the day your client may be wishing for.
Our clients schedules are packed with responsibilities and activities for others almost every day of the week. Without them scheduling time for themselves they may continuously wait for a time when things are less hectic or when they have achieved all of their goals. But such a time may never come, so help them plan a me-day ahead of time and put it in your schedules together. Make your clients day special, make it an easy decision to schedule their follow up appointment, try a new hair product or even put in a drink suggestion for next time (and write this down in your notes). Simply put, make an effort, this appointment is for them and not for us.
Keep me on my toes.
Please share with me other experiences you, as either a provider, or a guest in a salon or spa, have either wanted improved, or totally loved. You can share any questions you have about why things have been done a certain way during any part of a service you’ve received in a salon or spa. I’d love to keep posts like this coming, it not only helps me stay on my game, it helps my industry as a whole, hold ourselves to higher standards and be able to prove our worth to our clients.
Madison Hair Stylist Mallory Cook Explains Balayage & More
We’ve been seeing a lot of these fancy sounding words used to describe hair color for a while now. If you’ve ever gone to handy dandy Pinterest to try to figure out the difference, you’ve probably seen a lot of the same pictures pop up for balayage, ombré, foilyage, babylights and more than one, if not all of these terms.
The truth is, you don’t go into the salon to “get a balayage” or to just get “babylighted.” These are all terms stylists use for an application method of color or lightener to create a specific look in your hair. More than one technique may be used to create a particular look depending on what is already on your hair, and what you are looking to have as your finished result. So what that means: the technique used in your hair should be decided AFTER looking at pictures and talking about how you would like your hair color to look with your stylist!
What is Balayage?
Balayage in French means, “to sweep.” This term applied to a hair color application technique would be used for someone who is painting color, typically highlights, in a very natural soft way creating a soft effect towards the top, and a heavier, brighter effect at the ends of the hair. Think of your hair, after sitting in the sun, typically the ends of the hair are lighter and brighter from more exposure over time, and closer to the root there is softer brightening effects, usually mostly around your face and right on top. Balayage is a great way to mimic this kind of effect, and you have the power to make it bolder, or more subtle to look like you spent a week at the beach.
What is Foilyage?
Foilyage is something that fools (foils) a lot of us. I know a lot of stylists will disagree, but this IS a way of applying color to balayage, the difference? Foilage is applied in a foil, rather than free hand painted. Why? Many reasons! You will get a more defined result isolating the hair in a foil if desired, my main reason for going to foilage over balayage is how much more lightness I can achieve having the hair processed inside a foil. We can use a lower developer so we’re not just busting open the cuticle of our guests hair (with open air processing of highlights you usually want a higher developer so it can get the job done before it dries out), and it will lift higher. So if I’m working with a guest who has previously darker colored hair, or just naturally darker hair that doesn’t lift light easily, I will absolutely get the foils out and ready to go to achieve there desired result.
What are Teasy Lights?
Teasy lights means we backcomb the section of hair before painting, foiling, whatever application of highlighting we are using. This will create a super diffused line of demarkation, meaning the line where the highlight starts, for the maximum amount of blending in addition to our sweeping/painting method.
What are Babylights?
Babylights are done in very fine sections of hair, meant to mimic the multi dimensional color of a baby/toddler. These can be done very close together, or further apart depending on how much impact you want for the color. I love using baby lights to blend gray hairs for my clients that aren’t wanting to commit to an all over solid color. I’ll use two different formula, one a shade or two lighter than their natural, one a shade or two darker than their natural. It creates such natural dimension, it covers and blends those gray hairs right in. I’ll use closer sections in areas where there is more gray.
What is an Ombré?
Ombré is another fancy word, it’s french for shade, or shadow. So creating a shadow, or richer color at the base of the hair, fading out into lighter ends. This technique can, and has been applied in so many fun, creative ways. We see anything from a subtle medium brown into medium honey blonde ends, from extreme nearly black roots into silvery blonde ends, or more fun, fashion color, applications can be done such as dark blue roots into bold yellow ends. Techniques such as babylighting, teasy lights, and balayage can all be used within an ombré to create a nice blended effect.
What are the benefits of these techniques?
The beautiful thing about any of these hair color methods is they are super customizable. Bigger sections will create more of a bold impact, especially around the face this can create a very dramatic sunkissed, vibrant look. or fine sections can be taken for the ultimate natural color results.
A few things to remember or notice.
In any highlight or lightened hair as equally import to those bright pieces is our dark hair/negative space in between so those light pieces pop. If you as a client notice your hair getting to all over bright there’s a few techniques that are life savers to help bring contract back into their hair. Ask your stylist how they can add contrast back in. This makes hair look healthier, shinier, and it just pops color more to have dimension vs a solid color of hair.
To my Midwest women and men that love your hair all winter long because the dry air doesn’t trigger your frizz. Then come spring the second a bit of moisture and heat hits the air you don’t even want to style your hair, all you can do is tie it back, cover it with a headband or some kind of scarf. I have a solution to all of your hair frustration prayers! The Brazilian Blowout.
Ready for Frizz Free hair this summer with a Brazilian Blowout?
If you haven’t heard about a Brazilian Blowout at all, or if you have heard it mentioned and thought at first it sounds like something related to a waxing service, you are not alone.
The Original Brazilian Blowout has nothing to do with waxing and is everything an anti-frizz smoothing system for your hair. In fact, it’s the only hair smoothing treatment that is asked for by it’s actual name. It has been the most consistent smoothing system around our industry that I have seen in my over 10 years of doing hair.
What I mean by anti-frizz smoothing system:
It’s not a “straightener” or “relaxer.” It is a customizable treatment, which improves the condition of the hair through technology that creates a protective protein layer around your individual strands of hair. This leaves you with frizz-free, smooth hair that has the most amazing shine you’ve ever had.
Why I choose to offer and always recommend the Brazilian Blowout over any other smoothing system:
My favorite observations with Brazilian Blowouts on my own hair and my guests:
- Hair is so flexible, more so than usual, it doesn’t get stiff like a relaxer or other treatment. I end up walking around at home shaking my head around singing “I whip my hair back-and-forth!”
- When the Brazilian Blowout is done right after a color service, it really helps lock that color in and adds a ton of shine into an already vibrant color. It creates stunning results, and really elevates how the color and hairstyle looks.
- Hair dries so quickly and styles easily with a Brazilian Blowout. The Brazilian Blowout smooths down the cuticle (outside layer) of your hair strands, so you can blast the water out of your hair very quickly, and a quick blow dry hairstyle is made totally possible!
The more technical perks to the Brazilian Blowout that make it superior to other similar treatments:
- It is customizable, which really makes it unique to your desired results, hair type, and what you like to wear for an everyday hairstyle. If you like to wear your hair curly, you can diminish your frizz; therefore, defining your curls and having worry free styling. You can have some volume left around the top, or choose to go really nice and sleek (and everything in between).
- It works for all hair types, making anyone with frizzy hair a great candidate. Regardless of if you have curly, kinky, straight, or a nice beach wave to your hair, the Brazilian Blowout will wipe out your frizz and keep it smooth even on the most humid days!
- If you’ve ever had a Keratin, another type of smoothing system, or thought about one, you’ve heard the 72 hour rule. Meaning there is NO washing, NO tucking, NO bobby pins, NO putting your hair up, pretty much NO living your life when it comes to your hair for 72 HOURS! With Brazilian Blowout there is none of that, you could go workout with your hair in a ponytail right after receiving a treatment, then go shower and wash your hair off immediately after, amazing!
- All it takes is about an hour and a half of your life for super simplified styling and frizz free hair for up to 12 weeks!
- Unlike relaxers, straighteners, and keratin treatments (which are another smoothing treatment), Brazilian Blowout does not leave a line of outgrowth as your hair grows in. It gently fades off the hair, and even what’s left on because it’s such a natural looking treatment, someone looking at you cannot see a line of where it starts or stops.
You can set up an appointment with me today to either have a consultation to ask any other questions you may have, or to make sure the Brazilian Blowout is right for you (I can almost 100% guarantee it is right for anyone looking to eliminate frizz), or go ahead and book your Brazilian Blowout right here:Book Online

Discover Pulp Riot’s new launches and best sellers right here in Madison, WI. In the interest of full disclosure, I do sell professional hair color, hair care, and hair styling products here on my website.

These styling products are versatile and can work for anyone with any hair type to pull off a smooth, polished hair style, enjoy!
Pulp Riot Munich:
Pulp Riot Munich is a hair serum, it can be used as a blow dry serum to add some nice slip to the hair so it blow dries with ease and smoothness when paddle or round brushed, or it can be air dried into curly hair with your favorite curly product for extra frizz control. It can be applied to dry hair after styling to smooth down fly-aways and add shine. I have dry, frizzy hair myself, I’ve added a picture below which shows my beach-curled hair style looking smooth, and fly-away free! It’s very lightweight, so for my fine haired gals & guys this is a serum that will not weigh your hair down.
You can purchase off my website for in store pickup at the time of your choice, with your next appointment, or have it shipped to you.Pulp Riot Munich
Pulp Riot Toronto:
Pulp Riot Toronto is a firm hold hairspray, it locks out humidity, and no matter how many layers applied it will not get flakey in the hair. I layered it over Munich in my hair for this picture, I love that even though it’s a firm hold hairspray, the hair still moves and bounces like hair, but is controlled in the hair style you want.

The Undercut: For Men by Mallory Cook – Hair Stylist
Men’s undercuts have been a trend for a long time, they’ve come from a style that was a very much so DIY (do it yourself) kind of style that was clip up the hair you wanted up top, shave everything down underneath, and slick back the top. Nowadays the undercut is extremely trendy, and can be applied in so many different ways, there’s an option for almost every guy, his look and his hair type.
Keep in mind as you’re reading through these different undercut hair styles, most can be worn in more than one way. Ask your stylist for styling tips as far as how to blow dry & what products to use to get the most out of your style!
If you like to wear your hair back:
The traditional application of the undercut of shaving down the sides and wearing the top long and back is still a thing, but there’s so many options. From fading the sides to a length of your desire, to wearing a beard with this, really any guy in any profession, and any style can wear this look. A pomade can be used to style the type in a sort of wet look for more of a hip kind of style, or a wax to create more of a natural finish will keep this look more natural and care free looking.
Your stylist will know based on the growth patterns of your hair, just how high you should go with your undercut, what length is going to work best based on how it grows out and how it lays. So look to them for suggestions if your trying an undercut for the first time
If your hair is curly/wavy:
An undercut for curly hair can be a really fun change, and for my guys with curly hair it’s a great way to condense your haircut to not feeling so wide on your head. Again with this style the length on the sides is up for interpretation of the overall style you’re going for. You can use a pomade to add some shine and definition to your waves.
If you like to wear your hair forward:
If you’re a guy who likes to wear your hair forward, or that’s just the way your hair grows so you don’t have much of a say in the matter, an undercut can still work great for you. You can wear it short and spikey, use a paste to create lots of definition in the hair style. Or wear a styling cream for a softer finish that’d go great in any type of office setting.
Lastly, if you’re a guy who pushes his hair to the side you can have a lot of fun with an undercut. From shaved in hard parts, to softer everyday looks, this hair style has many options. The longer the top compared to the sides the more of a unique look this will provide.
