Night to Shine Event 2017

I always feel something more is out there. Not that I don't love my career, my business, my husband, my dog and our life but I always feel I could be making a greater difference in the world. Making the world some how better. I was asked if I wanted to volunteer as a makeup artist for the Night to Shine event in Somerset County, NJ. I jumped at the opportunity to be apart of something so much greater than I've ever been before. "Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. On one night,  February 10, 2017 , churches from around the world will host Night to Shine for thousands of honored guests!" Wow what a life changing experience that I am so proud and honored to have been apart of. I volunteered my services as a makeup artist and a hair stylist for an incredible night of smiles, laughter, love and dancing. The guests arrived with prom dresses and suits. They had the chance

All About Red Hair Color

Last month I briefly mentioned the maintenance of being an artificial red head. Since we are full force into the seasons of red heads, I thought I'd talk more about it. For starters, is it possible to make it through Fall & Winter without wishing you had red hair? I know I can't. I absolutely love red hair and secretly wish I were born a red head... well I guess that's not a secret anymore. I am going to tell you what I tell all my clients interested in becoming a red head, as well as all my clients struggling to maintain their artificial red hair... and also my clients looking to get rid of the red in their brown hair. Red is the hardest color to maintain and the hardest to remove. Sounds like an oxymoron but I promise it's not. So here is my advice... If you're trying to maintain your artificial red hair color you NEED to come in for MONTHLY glosses. Yes I said monthly. A gloss with me will cost $35 and comes with a wash and blow dry (can't beat th

Brazilian Blowout: Everything You Need To Know

Your Brazilian Blowout Questions Answered! Q. What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout? A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment. Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout? A. Good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. I have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, I have found that everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight? A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and he
