The time has come...

Can we just take a moment of silence for all of the early morning wakeups, pinterest failed lunches, drop-offs in pajamas, and cereal for dinners??? It's over. We have arrived.

Summer. Is. Here.

I know it can look different for all of us, but I am definitely looking forward to not having to get my little army out the door so early. Just a little bit of freedom. 

Summer also means sun and pools and vacations with salt water, that are amazing fun but maybe not-so-amazing on our hair. Thinking about the proper hair regimen and battle plan for getting our hair through summer unscathed is all too important. Because, let's face it, in the Fall you'll want to change it up again and won't it be nice to hear "Yes, you've treated your hair so well this last season, you CAN do that with your hair!!"

So.....Happy Hair Trios are 10% off June and July! You can buy a shampoo, conditioner and a styling product, and enjoy 10% off ALL THREE ITEMS!! All while earning points towards your half off tenth purchase!

My favorite for the season is hands-down Pureology's Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner (tea tree and peppermint yumminess), with their new no Air Dry Cream. Perfect for a little protection and a little bit of weight to keep frizz at bay.

I also want to take a minute to introduce you to a new MAKEUP LINE I’ll be bringing into the salon.

Alcone has been a professional makeup brand available only to celebrities and makeup artists since the 50’s. Recently they’ve introduced LimeLight by Alcone, a condensed version of their makeup, but with the same formulations and available to consumers (that’s you!). They’ve coupled that with an all natural ingredient skin care line. HUGE YAYS!!

As some of you know, I have been wanting to bring in a makeup line I could really commit to and have available to you all with 100% confidence. Other lines have fallen short. LimeLight by Alcone has the staying power that I can stand behind, quality ingredients and 50% pigmentation in their colors. Booyah!! It also means a little goes a long way. Don’t we all need that in our life. Ha! You can also visit https://limelightbyalcone.com/blushyouinc for more info on ingredients and products available.

Cheers to pools everywhere!

Frame that Fabulous Face!

You've heard them say, "the eyes are the windows to your soul." Well, if that's true, then your brows are the drapes. And if you've got ugly curtains, ain't nobody care what your windows look like! Let's fix that!

Begin with a good brow shape. This is the foundation on which you will build all of your hopes an dreams. If you don't feel like your brows are in shape, stop reading this and make an appointment. Frustration will surely ensue without good, clean lines. Using a spooley, brush your brows up and out. Trick of the trade alert: want to know how far to take that ever illusive tail?? Using your brow brush, place it at an angle from the side of your nose to the bottom corner of your eye. Where the brush ends at your brow bone is the farthest point you should take your tail. Ever.

Grab the lighter shade in a brow powder duo appropriate for your skin and brow color (I’m using Sigma Brow Duo in Medium). Create a line from the bottom inside of your brow, across to where you decided your tail should be.

Still using the lighter shade in your duo, brush the powder in similar strokes to the direction you brushed your hairs: up and out, using your original line as a base. Think of this as adding hair between your natural hairs. This is not a coloring contest.

Brush the darker shade of your duo only in the tail area of your brow. This will add definition and dimension. Tame your hairs with a clear or colored brow gel. Finish, by placing a light colored shadow (1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone) just under your brow’s arch to give a more lifted appearance.
