Hair, There, and Everywhere: Spoke SLO’s Christine Thompson in the news

Our very own Co-Founder, Christine Thompson, has been in the news lately for her hair color know-how, including Access Hollywood where she explained this fall’s “progressive blond” trend we mentioned in a previous post.


Christine was also mentioned, along with Spoke SLO Co-Founder, Jon Reyman, in’s re-cap of the “Best Beauty Looks of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Show,” which took place last month in Los Angeles.

“Such varied looks, spanning both time and space, could have proved a challenge but hairstylists, and CFDA show veterans, Jon Reyman and Christine Thompson were having no problem crafting ’50s Vargas pinup-girl hair for shoe designer Chloe Gosselin’s ’50s diner waitresses alongside classic Marcel waves for Area’s modern flappers and pretty ballerina buns for Ji Oh’s Hiplet dancers who fused classical pointe with hip-hop.” – “The Best Beauty Looks of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Show,” Rachel Marlowe,


instyleAnd, to round out the trio of broadcast, web and print media, Christine was featured in the November 2016 issue of InStyle Magazine.

What’s the best way to tell if a shade will look good on me? It’s all about your complexion, says Christine Thompson, color director and co-founder of N.Y.C.’s Spoke & Weal salon. If your skin has warm undertones, like yellow, gold, or red, you want to find a hair color with opposite, cooler undertones, like ash brown or black. Does your complexion have a hint of blue or green in it? A warm, rich copper or auburn will be flattering. Keep in mind that if you’re looking to go lighter than sandy blond, it’s best to consult an in-salon pro. The level of bleach in lightening dyes can cause breakage (hellos, split ends).” – How to Color Your Hair at Home, InStyle Magazine, November 2016


We’re so proud to be recognized by national media as industry leaders. Congrats, Christine!
