If you’ve been following me for a couple years now, you may know that I am (what Amelia Rose Studio’s owner Jodi calls) a “blonde-a-holic.” I love my blonde and have been bleaching + lightening my hair for years.
That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to get my hair colored by Jodi Shachar at Amelia Rose Studio. Jodi specializes in blondes, and I trusted her with my locks.
The sad truth is that my hair was waaaay overdue for a color. I had been double processing my hair (bleach + tone) for about a year, but “let it go” and my darker roots were overgrown. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my hair anymore, and I was a little lost.

But Jodi knew just what to do, and consulted with me during my appointment, suggesting that she add in both highlights + lowlights to give me a softer blonde. I was down for the cause, and in just a few hours, my hair was completely transformed into a beautiful, ashy, blonde.
About Jodie Shachar
Jodi’s story is really cool, and I loved being able to hear it told by her personally. She always wanted to have a baby girl but instead was blessed with 3 boys. Instead of giving up on that dream, she decided to create Amelia Rose Studio, a space that reflects all of the traits she would want her daughter to have: elegance, beauty, confidence.
Jodi’s energy and attitude is contagious, and I had such an awesome time chatting with her during my appointment. She really takes time with all of her clients + recognizes that blonde hair coloring requires a little extra patience + attention.
Another cool thing about Jodi + the salon? It is sustainable + a certified Green Circle Salon; which means that she recycles everything she can: foils, color, and even hair.
Before + After
Before you look at these photos, I’m going to ask you to not judge me 😂 I am well aware that I let my blonde go for far too long, and that’s why I needed Jodi’s help so badly.
