Okay, I’m here to discuss my gripe with the advertising of Keratin Treatments. On a regular basis I have clients coming in telling me they want Keratin done so they can have pin straight hair. If you are a hair dresser then you know that the Keratin is a smoothing system. It is not meant to make your hair pin straight. It is meant to smooth out the frizz. Now for some people it does have the result of making their hair very straight but it all depends on the genetic makeup of your hair and how it reacts to the chemical. When I tell clients all of this however, they look at me and say “I saw before and after photos!” So here is where I get angry. The before photos are one thing. You’re showing the hair in it’s natural state. But when you take a picture of the hair right after you are finished and call it the “after” photo, it is very misleading! The process of the Keratin Treatments involves using a flat iron over the person’s entire head!! Of course their hair is going to be pin straight by the time you are done! Just because they walk away from your chair, doesn’t mean the process is over. That chemical is still processing in their hair which is why they can’t wash for at least 72 hours. To me, the final result is when they wash their hair for the first time and let it dry. THIS is when the “after” photos should be taken! This will give the people a true meaning of what the keratin does for their hair. I guess it is just as misleading as a “before” and “after” photo of someone using pimple cream. They always have make-up on in the “after”. It drives me crazy. Why can’t advertisements be more honest. I think people would appreciate it more!
I’ve been wearing golds, and bronze tones for years now…I love the way they shimmer. So I am thrilled to see it become more popular. I use it a lot on my brides. When they say they are very natural when they do their own makeup, and want to look like themselves but with a little more umph, gold is always a great answer!
The best part about the golds is that it looks great with every eye color! I mean, look at those blue babies pop!
BehindTheChair.com shared this photo yesterday and I thought I would pass it along. I know they say that you should try to match your eyebrows to your hair, but this takes it to a whole new level, don’t you think? Have you ever seen pink brows before? I haven’t! Is it weird that I don’t think it looks that bad!?

Thank you to beautyandmakeupblog for sharing this on FB today. I just couldn’t not also share it! We all love the braided fish tail look. In fact it’s the next thing I have to learn to do now that I have mastered braiding. But how cool is this look for your finger nails?
The top picture is easy enough to follow. You need three colors to choose from to create it. You probably could do more but it might be overwhelming. Best part is that you don’t have to have a steady hand because your lines do not need to be perfect. You’ll be covering your imperfections with the next color.
Sooooo much fun, and I love how they only did the ring finger design. I must try this!
Jlo’s new video for ‘Goin In’ features Ms. Lopez with bejeweled lips that are to die for! Now, I know this is not really a look that is appropriate to wear when you go out simply because you can’t eat or drink properly.
What if I told you there was a way to sort of mimic this look and you could wear it all day? I know, you’re jumping up and down right now aren’t you? I’ve written about this product before but always get excited about it.
Violent lips is a way to get super awesome lips that are impossible to smudge! The glittered look mimics the jewels and it won’t go anywhere once you put it on! Why not? Because it’s not lipstick. It’s a temporary tattoo, just like when you were a kid and got them from the ice cream man. It is the same idea except it goes on your lips!
You can order straight from their site and choose from so many different fun colors and designs! Check them out- www.violentlips.com
