T/M Creative Photo Shoot 2016

T/M Creative Photo Shoot 2016

If you're a woman living in a big city, chances are you're constantly on the go. Switching from work attire to something that's a little more evening appropriate, usually takes place in the woman's bathroom of your office building. I think we women know this routine all too well, especially here in San Francisco where chances are, your neighborhood bar has become your place of refuge after a hectic work day. With the help of our T/M Creative Team, we've put together some looks for you babes, in an effort to make this transition from day to night a little less bothersome. Please enjoy, and hopefully these looks will help you spend less time in your office facilities and more time at the bar! 

Check out our Facebook page at www.fb.com/taylormonroesf.com for more photos from the shoot! 

Xoxo, T/M

T/M Makes It Into REFINERY29

Big thanks to REFINERY29 for including us in their article "Spring Hair Inspiration From San Francisco's Top Salons"!

R29 featured looks from T/M stylists, Ash and Aubrey. "You can wear it straight, or create a beachy, bohemian look by playing with texture." says Ash about the textured bob she created. Aubrey commented on the pixie cut she fashioned saying, "I love this pixie cut because it really accents her beauty and makes her style bloom." 

As the weather changes, your wardrobe does the same and so should your hair! Swing by T/M to make sure your locks are season appropriate!

T/M CUSTOM CRATE WALL

Out with the old, in with the new! We took down the rose wall and installed a custom-made crate wall with the help of Jack and Sarah, goods friends of TAYLOR / MONROE. For the build out, they used reclaimed wood, repurposed sheet metal and wine crates. They did an amazing job in taking our vision and bringing it to life! We couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out! Thanks Jack and Sarah!

If you're ever in the neighborhood, come by and check it out! For photos of the build out, visit fb.com/taylormonroesf
