Welcome to the weekend!

Keyword: friday, wedding, mothers day

It’s my second favorite day of the week!  FRIDAY has finally arrived! There is so much going on this weekend, I am not even sure where to begin!


First off, I have a makeup trial tonight with one of my older brothers friends from high school.  This is very exciting for me. My brother is 6 years older than me. I can remember the days when I thought him and his friends were so cool. They were in high school and here I was, this twerpy little elementary school kid. I can remember always trying to spy and sneak down stairs to hang out with them!  So I feel extra honored that I was asked to do her makeup. I know she is going to look beautiful on her big day!


Fast forward to Saturday…the day I get to work a wedding that I am probably going to be super emotional for!  My little sisters best friend from elementary school is getting married!  Not only do I have the privilege to do her hair, but I will be attending the wedding as well. It’s so unbelievable how fast time goes. And my heart is filled with so much joy that I get to make her feel even more special on her wedding day!  Tomorrow is a day I look forward to very much!

But of course, we cannot forget about Mothers Day! I hope your got your mom something very special! I am excited to give my mom her gift.  I just know she will love it!!


Happy Weekend to all, and Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there….including mine!!

The Flyers secret recipe for success lies in the hands of a Pens diehard

Keyword: secret to success, philadelphia flyers, pittsburgh penguins, ribs



The Flyers have a secret recipe for success when playing against the Pittsburgh Penguins: A special order of ribs from a little place called DeeJay’s in West Virginia.


PuckDaddy reported yesterday that after going 5-0-0 at the Pens Consol Energy Center, Flyers Coach Laviolette said:    ”We buy ribs from DeeJays in Weirton after the game and have them delivered to the plane,”  ”And those ribs seem to be doing the trick. It went back to last year, too. Whenever the ribs are ordered, we win. I want to thank DeeJays.”



The owner of DeeJays had a little something to say about the situation as well after being haggled by local Penguins fans.  “No more ribs for them,” Guida told the Steubenville Herald-Star. “And I pray, I hope, that the Penguins beat their skates off.”


Could this really be the key to their success or just a nice little yummy coincidence?  I will have to find out for myself next week when I head to Pittsburgh to coach a Junior Select team.  DeeJays watch out! I am coming in for the goods, and I’ll probably be rocking my Rangers Jersey.




Who knew? We have a chapter!

Keywords: HRC, long island, lindenhurst, will and grace

In all things cool and happening on Long Island, I was excited to find out today that there is a Long Island specific chapter of the HRC. (For you “straights” that stands for the “Human Rights Campaign”.) You know, that big blue sticker with the equal sign? That means equality!


Friday, Feb 10th (today) there is a local meet up of the Long Island HRC group in Lindenhurst at the Village Pub from 7pm to 9pm. You can find out more info on the facebook page by searching “Equality Mix & Mingle”. (If I could, I would attend and report back to you all, but this little blogger will be performing in a show!) So check it out and report back to me!


The Human Rights Campaign is “America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.” Plus, they make those really awesome stickers! The stickers have actually been around for a while - they’re so cool, even Will & Grace had an HRC sticker up in their old apartment because Will went to their meetings! And that was in 1998! ( Bonus points if you can tell me where it is!)


(SEE! I KNEW it! Karen is a lesbian! )

We love when people do good deeds

Keyword: cancer, wigs, jewel hair design

Whenever I hear of a local business helping to give back, it just makes me all giddy inside.  It’s such a wonderful thing when people go out of their way to help others who are in need.  So when I saw this on Facebook I knew I had to give my praise!


Jewel Hair Design is a company working mostly out of the Virginia, DC, Maryland area (I know, this is a NY site, but it says they will travel nationwide!!!) They offer on site hair design for  whatever your needs are. They have also recently started making their own hair accessories available on ETSY.

The reason they caught my attention today was because they posted about an amazing thing they are doing. They have commited to giving $1.00 to the Greatergood.org every time they get a new fan on Facebook, and they share this info with friends by tagging them in a post. Greatergoods.org is a site dedicated to making the world a better place. It covers all kinds of donations, including wigs for women battling cancer. You have until Christmas Day to be a part of this, and it’s so simple to do!  Just click here for their site and the rest is easy as pie!

Westyle is always excited to share news like this, so if you know of any other local businesses/salons/hairdressers…etc who go that extra step to do something special like this, please let us know so we can feature them on our site!

A solution to balding hair!

Keyword: bald, hair growth, magic hair, caboki

I cannot tell you what they are saying, but they seem to be laughing a lot!  What are they doing?  They are using Caboki!


What’s Caboki? It’s a product for men or women with hair loss.  It is made of natural fibers that stick to the hairs that remain on the head, making them thicker and cover more space.  It is wind, rain, sweat proof too! You can see from the video how easy it is to use.


According to their website, it is totally natural looking and no one will be able to tell you are using it!  The best part is, they have it available in several colors-


Dark Brown

Medium Brown

Light Brown


Dark Grey


You can either spend $40 for a 50-75 day bottle, or $20 for a 25 day bottle. Check it out here.


Though the video I posted here is funny, it actually seems like it is an excellent product and I’m very interested to see if any of my readers have used it, or know someone who has!

Do you feel guilty?

Keyword: cheater, stylish, haircut

The bond between a hair stylist and their clients can be very strong sometimes. We try to keep a business professional relationship with all our clients but when we hear about so much of their personal lives it’s hard not to make a connection with some of them. I know there are plenty of my clients out there that would consider me a “friend” to a certain extent. I am told on a regular basis “I will NEVER go to anyone else but you!”  While that is extremely flattering, I always take it with a grain of salt.  There are so many reasons why a client might have to see another stylist. It doesn’t always mean they like someone else better. In fact, if I am unable to take a client when they are in need of having their hair done, I have a good friend who I always refer them to. I’m not threatened. I don’t get offended if one of my regulars comes in and I notice their last cut was not by me. I don’t take walk-ins, so I understand there are going to be those clients that need something last minute and will need to go somewhere else for a quick service. I never make my clients feel guilty for doing so.  I would prefer them to wait if they can, but I understand the busy-ness of peoples lives. Personally, I don’t think you should ever feel guilty if you “cheat” on your hairdresser.

She’s making a speedy recovery!

Keyword: Lauren Scruggs, model, propeller, accident

We have been following this story (“Tragedy Hits…”, “Update…”, Newest Update…”) as closely as we can and we thought this would be the perfect time for an update. Upon leaving the hospital on Tuesday, the first photographs of Lauren Scruggs have been taken. The December 3rd accident left Scruggs without a left hand and without her left eye after accidentally walking into a plane propeller. She had made remarkable improvements and seems to be in high spirits despite all she has been through.  She even made this comment on her blog LOLO a few days ago:


“i don’t know how to thank each one of you, properly, for so much love during this difficult incident in my life. my heart is so grateful beyond what i could ever imagine. so thank you dearly for the sweet encouragements, the precious words in letters and messages, the beautiful grace in pretty presents, but mostly i am so SO thankful for you and your loving hearts and sweet spirits. i wonderfully know that we are all so adored by the amazing and powerful Lord, and nothing is greater than walking in His planned-out lives. Jesus Christ is imaginably glorious and worthy of all praise even in the hardest moments. love, lo”

We keep our prayers going for this young woman!
