Having an amazing conditioning treatment topped with a fabulous blow-out is the best, right?! I was recently treated to a Minardi conditioning service by none other than star colorist Sherry Ratay and blow-out by the one-and-only Mika Fowler at Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills, California. While I don't have a before photo, I must relay that I came in with my hair looking less than stellar (dry and damaged).
As we anxiously usher in the hopes of Springtime's warm weather, this is a great time begin to add playful pigments to your boring makeup routine.

The colors in your makeup can secretly make a statement for you and will simultaneoulsy help you be right on trend for 2013!
As many of you know, once you have children, any sense of modesty goes out the window—especially when it comes to bodily functions. Changing diapers, potty training: It seems like it’s all poop, all the time. Nevertheless, I have to say, bathroom humor is funny. Really funny. So imagine my delight when I heard about The Daily Duty (thedailyduty.com).
I had a blast tonight with the Beauty Launchpad Golden Globes Twitter Party. Allow me to review a few of my favorite looks.
The Best Bun.
Whether perched up high or smoothed down low, the BUN was the most popular style of the evening.
Katherine McPhee's messy high bun was the perfect complement to her plunging neckline and sky-high heels.
Elesia Sade was recently awarded 1st Runner up in Miss Virginia Collegiate America and also won Miss Photogenic and the photo contest. I had the pleasure of working on her makeup and touching up her hair for the winning headshot. The photo was taken in an exclusive photo shoot with the wonderfully talented and world renowned photographer, Yvonne Taylor.
Allow me to share a few makeup tricks that I used while working with gorgeous Elesia for her award winning headshot.
After seeing the stunning blonde and brunette color from celebrity stylist Sherry Ratay's Hues of Natural Perfection, I was looking forward to seeing her color on a redhead. Last week, I was in luck. I got to be that redhead!
I have found that it is very difficult to achieve the perfect caramel highlight for fall that women with dark hair crave around this time of year! Even though highlights add warmth and depth, it is not unusual for a client to be dissatisfied after requesting this service. You may hear complaints such as, this looks brassy, it's dull, or heaven forbid the orange word! I have a fool proof method with results so amazing I feel compelled to share them with my fellow stylists.
