I had the pleasure of attending Privé's Exclusive Diamond Salon Dinner, held at Privé CEO/COO Jackie Applebaum's beautiful home in Los Angeles. The event hosted top salon owners from all across the country who carry Privé products exclusively in their salons. After spending the day gaining valuable techniques and business building strategies at a symposium led by Camala Casco, Director of Business and Education for Privé, everyone was treated to a four-course gourmet dinner, prepared by the talented Ms. Applebaum.

How Suite It Is
I have to admit, being an LP editor is a pretty sweet gig. In fact, I would say there are days when we are downright spoiled. Take yesterday for example. My day on the job included attending Byron & Tracey Salon's Pre-Emmy's Indulgence Retreat for an afternoon of refreshments, swag and pampering alongside Hollywood's elite - oh and getting a fantastic cut from one of the salon's super talented stylists.
