Don't Do It!

Women's Health

I recently read "Timeline of a Tan" in the latest Women's Health Magazine.  This timeline is easy to understand, and I hope it hits home for many people.  I am religious about sunscreen, I am careful about the time I spend in the sun, I haven't seen the inside of a tanning bed for 20+ years, and even I was made more aware.  Please take care of yourself and if you must, get your bronze artificially!  I am on a constant quest for the best sunless tans and I will be sharing my favorites soon!

Color Conditioner

I love Davines Alchemic conditioner in Silver...  It has a touch of violet tint to brighten highlights and counteract brassy hues.  Great to use after a beach vacation!

Coffee Table Beauty

Many of you may know I have this odd fascination with Lauren Conrad.  I've just added Lauren Conrad Beauty to The Cutting Room coffee table books.  The tips in the book are not intended to give advice to those in my industry but is great for clients!  Great reading material the next time you are in The Cutting Room...

Essie Armed and Ready

Green is this year's color.  Looking for a new nail polish color, the greens are all a little too bright and candy inspired for me right now...  This new green is perfect!  It's an olive shade with a slight metallic edge.  oh i love this polish!

Nail Sticker Tutorial

I've had a lot of people tell me they still struggle with nail stickers...
Here is "the man" Tom Bachik giving a tutorial.  If you haven't heard of him before, he is the most sought after celebrity manicuristHe has the best back story.  Tom was an avid skateboarder, and started out as a graphic artist.  He custom painted helmets, etc. but his graphic arts company was struggling.  Married with a child on the way, he had heard that hairdressing was a great career.  After realizing the schooling was longer than he had time for, he decided on nails!  Loving a good competition, he won several awards in nail art, and the rest is history...
