In the beginning of the year, I shared my mission to speak and work differently to demonstrate how stylists can deliver more value to clients in today’s world. Changing language to start conversations that open the door to discovering new creative approaches in cutting and finishing globally influenced shapes. Using condensed and precision cutting to create modern details, beginning cuts in unfamiliar sections of the head and working with sectioning patterns to cut and finish hair effortlessly and quickly.
I admit it: I have a tendency to get stuck in a beauty rut. My morning routine consists of lightly misting my hair with spray to stave off the effects of humidity. That’s it. I haven’t even colored my hair beyond a demipermanent gloss. Yet for quite some time now, I’ve wanted to do something different…
Recently, the world of hair had its collective eyes set on New York Fashion Week to see how the designers chose to further express their collections’ statement through hair.
Confession: I've never had my lashes done! Or I hadn't ever, up until a couple of weeks ago.
I always thought my lashes were pretty decent, especially with the help of mascara. But being in the beauty industry, or at least writing about the beauty industry, imbues one with the desire to push the envelope. My lashes were OK—fairly dark, medium length and I had a lot of 'em—but it always bothered me that they didn't have a curl, or even hold a curl.
At the beauty parlour, we wanted to design looks from the Spring / Summer 2014 Runways and produce beautiful and importantly, wearable, styles for the everyday girl. For the styles below, we used clients at Jennie Kay Beauty to reinforce just how easily these looks and trends can be created.
In a world populated with blow-dry bars that offer supremely quick and convenient beautifying services, I couldn't help but wonder:
"What if I want a facial, and I want it fast?"
That's where The Face Haus comes in.
Harnessing the same express-delivery method as dry bars and adapting it to skincare, The Face Haus is traversing exciting, new skincare territory.
By now, beauty pros, you've probably all heard of FabFitFun (FFF).
FFF is a quarterly subscription box curated by red-carpet queen and super-mom Giuliana Rancic as well as the FFF editorial team. At $49.99 per quarter, the box boasts serious value, promising to include full-size products (because seriously, how much mileage are you going to get out of samples?) that range from trendy fashion accessories to beauty must-haves, fitness routines and more.
The FFF Winter VIP Box, the company's fourth-ever box, certainly got me into the spirit.
