It’s Getting Hot in Here

When I’m in the salon I seem to run into the same problem day after day, not enough counter space.  When I get busy my station looks like a hurricane hit it.  IT’S BAD!!!!!  It can also be very embarrassing for my clients to see my messy station.  Even rearranging my tools never did the trick either.  I felt like my station needed to grow another arm so to speak.

I just about gave up until I discovered The Hot Iron Holster.  When I first took it to work I decided to try it out.   I put my 1 1/2 inch curling iron it, cranked it up to the highest degree (450) and let it hang from my station for 20 minutes.  I couldn’t believe how strong the Holster was.  It held that seering hot curling iron on my station with the utmost strength and durablity I have ever seen and didn’t burn or melt it.

The Holster has no adhesives or suction cups to hold it in place and can cling to any smooth surface.  Not only good in salons, The Hot Iron Holster can also be used at home, or any place you do your hair.   I also found that The Hot Iron Holster is also great for holding, brushes, hair products, and even that one little in the way dodad that you can never seem to know what to do with.

All I can say as a professional hairdresser is that The Hot Iron Holster is a must have for ALL I hairstylists and anybody with hot tools.  So stop dealing with clutter and get yourself one NOW!!!! 🙂

Love Your Face with Renee Taylor

My mom loves faceLOVE by Renee Taylor, star of the hit t.v. show “The Nanny”, See what she has to say:


Renee Taylor & her personal makeup artist, Cindy Carol call it “face  LOVE”; I call it “WOW”. I could not believe how instantly the serum replaced the  problem lines on my face with an amazingly smooth finish. I caution you though,  do not get greedy! The first time I tried it I absolutely loved seeing the lines  disappear and my face rejuvenated. I was pleased, but greedily thought if I  apply more I can probably totally regain my youth. (LOL). I found out quickly  that it doesn’t work that way; more only gives a crusty white scale. So in this  case more is not better, it is a waste of your valuable serum. A drop on problem  areas is enough to give you a very noticeable change.

I prefer to apply a drop around my eyes after I have applied my makeup (and  given it time to dry). It gives me a soft, smooth, natural look. I am especially  impressed with the more natural look as I have never been much of a believer in  purchasing major changes to my face. Personally, I feel ungrateful considering  not being who I was born to be. Please understand that I don’t consider this a  problem for others; only myself. I believe that these are individual choices  that we make for ourselves, but respectfully accept that others may have a  different choice. I like the challenge of accepting myself and “faceLove” enhances that experience by giving me a glimpse of the time before the lines  crept in.

Being able to accept our age gracefully is a challenge. I am so glad that the  changes come slowly, but I will not forget the day that I looked in the mirror  and saw my mother. Don’t misunderstand, it was not devastating but it was eye  opening. The lines and creases had arrived and the resemblance was there. My  mother didn’t have “face LOVE”, but I do and I am thankful for being able to see  what a difference it makes.

Life is not without change, so every opportunity I have to enhance my look is  a blessing to me. Try “face Love”. I think you will love what it does for  you

The Makeup Show in Orlando, Florida at The Peabody Hotel

In my opinion I would have to say that the Beauty Industry is the best industry to work in.  With so many different techniques, products to try, people to meet and places you can go, it’s no wonder us beauty fanatics are always so outgoing.  When I was at The Makeup Show in Orlando, Florida I got to meet celebrity makeup artist Tia Dantzler, known for her work with singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, and made many new contacts and friends. Rather than me tell you all about my experience, why don’t I show you…..

They Don’t Have to Know It’s Fake

Every time I am on the beach I do the weirdest thing. I put my sunscreen on all over my body then I take my t-shirt and put it on over my bathing suit to protect my shoulders and back from the sun.  Like many fair skinned people, I have a fear of getting badly sunburned.  When I was younger I wished I could be like the other girls and get a suntan.

After about my 7th time getting sunburned, I decided to give up all together with even trying to get sun tanned by the sun.  When I went to beauty school and learned about how the sun can do some serious damage to your skin, I decided to try the “tan from a can” technique.  I tried all kinds of lotions and bronzers to just add a little something, but everything just seemed to make me look orange. I kept thinking to myself “you are not a pumpkin.”  After my last failed attempt I did exactly what I did with the sun, I gave up.

When I had to give on trying to get a tan all together, I was so devastated because I wanted to have a little color added to my pale white skin.  I swear I’m so white I’m translucent.

When I first received Fake Bake 60 Minute Self Tanner, I was very afraid to try it because of my past.   When I finally got the guts to try Fake Bake, I immediately fell in love.  For once  I WAS NOT ORANGE!!!!!!! My skin just glowed with that healthy sun kissed glow without the harmful rays.

When people complimented me on how great my skin looked I couldn’t have been happier.

So next time you want to get a beautiful glow, rethink the rays and go for Fake Bake 60 Minute Self Tanner, and see what it will do for you.

Curls can be fun and sexy, but to get them that way seems impossible. With all the gel, mousse, and hairspray it takes more time to do your hair then it does to make breakfast.  If you could get that same sexy look with just one product you would do it right? I knew you would.

When I started using BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray, I noticed a change in my curls from the first use.  There was a lot less frizz and the look of dryness. BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray gave them a “new life” and they seem very happy.

So throw away all that unnecessary product and go for the one that does it all, BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray and give your curls new life.

Vist and see it for yourself.

Is it love? No it’s EvaAmour

I can remember when I was younger my mom having what she called her “signature scent”. Every morning after her shower she splashed herself with it smelling up her whole bathroom. I remember asking her why it was her “signature scent”, and she it is a scent that she always wore that made her feel good about herself. That does not mean that she didn’t wear other scents, it was just her favorite out of all of them.

Now here I am 21 years old and I now realize why my mom had that love for her one favorite perfume. Having worked in fragrance at Macys Department Store I have smelled and tested many different fragrances. Some are sweet, some strong, some floral, or citrus, you name it and I have probably smelled it. After all my fragrance experiences I have finally found that one fragrance that not only smells delicious but makes me feel like a sexy sassy little redhead. It is called EvaAmour by the gorgeous Eva Longoria.

I love EvaAmour as an “every day wear” perfume. Every time I put it on I always get compliments on it. Older women and younger women both ask me what perfume I am wearing and where they can get their own. You can be the envy of all your friends and drive men crazy with one spray of EvaAmour in the morning. All you have to do is spray it on the pressure points of your body and before you know it people will be following you home.

For your own bottle of EvaAmour by Eva Longoria check and see for yourself just what sexy smells like.
