Coral , blushes , and violet colors all walked the runway yesterday at the Vera Wang wedding show. I was there doing hair for the models … what a great day, a great event, and amazing talent. So fun to be there the flower inspired dresses that fit and move on women perfectly, there is nothing as beautiful as a Vera Wang dress. Sneak preview.
The weekend is here. Whether your weekend is about food, conversation, friends, a glamorous night out or simple downtime. Here are some looks that feel great for the still very wintry weekend.
Also some great brunch recommendations from this blog Guest of a Guest http://guestofaguest.com/washington-dc/dining/top-5-best-boozy-brunches-in-dc.
You will love them all.
Stay warm, enjoy.
I get asked a lot what are the best conditioners out there. I always say, it depends on the season and your hair. Like your skin, your hair routine should vary with the weather. I recommend having three shampoos and conditioners you love. Why? Because that product that you loved and was working great either plateaued or your environment changed effecting your hair and the way the product was working. So changing your routine to the season and your hair needs will recharge a loved shampoo and conditioner. I say three kinds do the trick. Don’t be scared to shake things up with good products. You spend a lot of money on your hair. Treat it well. It does matter
Shampoo’s & Conditioners I love
Low lather shampoo’s and the less you shampoo the better. Which leads me too…
Oribe Dry Texturizing spray, a way to gain a extra day in-between shampooing.
A deep conditioner for those of you with real hydrating needs. This once a week or every other week is amazing.
At home remedy thats a must in everyones shower. Coconut oil, you can use a conditioner and make sure rinse very well.
My favorite is to shampoo the night before use coconut oil on mid-shaft to end tie up and rinse shampoo and condition normally the next morning. Conconut oil on the skin is a everyday ritual especially in the winter.
The past year working with Organic systems has been great. So Im reposting information about this line. This year at the end of February I am adding hair extensions a great way to change your look, add volume, or just for the fun of it!
I love the results and feed back I get from clients in 2013. For those of you who are conscious about their lifestyle and our environment, this color line exceeds the norm in results and handling. It’s really one of a kind.
How it works..
The key difference with OCS is that not only is it the base of the color (the main ingredient); which is alkaline, so it raises the pH of the hair. But it is also a conditioning agent; so it softens the cuticle at the same time. This softening process means that OCS is able to work at a far lower pH and is a far gentler way to color the hair than ammonia-based colors.
Unlike ammonia which operates at a high pH and swells the cuticle, literally forcing the pigments into the hair, Organic Color Systems moisturizes the hair which softens the cuticle, allowing it to open at a lower pH and enabling the color to wind itself through the layers of cuticle.
Health of staff and clients, far better condition of the clients’ hair, the fact that clients are increasingly asking for it and no smell of ammonia in the salon.

It’s all about hair today, even nose hair. If you have it which we all do you should consider waxing it away. As my esthetician said it’s a must for every women, & I agree. When I had this done it was virtually pain free, lasted for months this varies person to person. I loved the results and now recommend to all my clients. Men and women.
Guy’s we all know the men who need to have it done, who are over grown and the plucking & trimming is not fixing the problem.
Guys and Girls when you make your next appointment be sure to do this, it is a grooming necessity.
Have a great week
A video for those who want to see how it’s done. He is a little corny but you can see the process.
December is here the month of parties, this week I will be posting lots of ideas for your hair and style inspirations for the holidays.
Today is about accessories for the hair.
They can be great, try anything a headband, flower, bow, or ornaments. They are fun fresh and can make a gorgeous look.
Loosen up long hair with these layers create shape, style, & give a complete change to your look.
Beautiful heavy layers bordering on a fringe in the first photo. These layers are a real game changer to long boring hair. The second photo is perfect for any hair texture curly to straight, adding lots of movement to the hair. Fall is a great time to amp up your look!
Today we are honoring all our veterans with our deepest appreciation & gratitude.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
Finding Everyday Beauty was created with my valued clients in mind. But it’s for everyone!
A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of a host, held partly to amuse one another, to refine the taste, and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation … either to please or to educate.
Finding Everyday Beauty is an extension of this.. An online salon, with emphasis on finding real everyday beauty in all of us while having fun doing it! Monday posts will be style inspirations.Wednesdays are all about promotions!!! don’t miss those posts…they will be for you! Friday’s posts will be for the fun of it.
I will show you styles, hoping to inspire you to try on your own at home or with me at the salon. I will answer questions, update you on trends, new services, promotions, schedule changes and much more.
In the mean time some new addition to my color arsenal, Organic Hair Care Systems and let me know if you want to give it a try. Scarlet extensions, another great product that makes changing your look a lot of fun is coming soon. Please feel free and get in touch with any questions, comments or ideas about the blog.
Monday is here & this is a great look to try on this week. The side swept pony is refreshing, has passion, & style. It’s easy to do, check out Foxy’s how-to video below. She is using clip-in extensions but you don’t need them to get this look. Follow her lead, get to work, and look great while you do it!
I hope you have an awesome Memorial Day & weekend. Hopefully you are headed out-of-town, hanging out with friends or just relaxing. Today is my last day at the salon for the week and I’m looking forward to letting my hair down with some girlfriends.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation’s wars.
