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.

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.

2014 - it is the beginning of a new year and as the holidays come to a close, there are many newly engaged brides-to-be that will start the process of wedding planning. I have been thinking about my amazing industry and what makes for a fabulous bridal hairstyle. Most of my brides have an idea of what they want on the big day.

2014 is all about revolution; it’s about hairdressers embracing change by saying and doing things differently. This year, I’m focusing on helping stylists take back their chairs by communicating differently. Saying the same old things over and over yields the same old results, but approaching conversations in new ways with innovate new words catches attention, creates excitement and starts conversations.
