What's New

Big is back!

In the past, smooth, controlled, sleek styles have been “in”, but I am happy to announce that big is back! For some of you big never left, but for a while magazines, movies, and TV shows featured people wearing a more smooth, glossy, straight look. More and more product lines are now making new volumizing, root boosting, and hair holding products to pump up your look. One of my favourite lines that has re-defined volume is Bumble and bumble. They have recently released an entire thickening line to boost your volume and add texture. The new line consists of Thickening shampoo and conditioner, Thickening Hairspray, Thickening Full Form Mousse, Thickening Dry-Spun Finishing Spray, and a Thickening Crème Contour Finishing Paste. One of my favorites from the line is the Thickening Full Form Mousse. I naturally have fine, flat hair so this stuff really adds some texture and volume, not to mention it smells great! Some of you may not know the first thing about getting volume into your hair or the best way to use these products, well lucky for you Bumble and bumbles website has a ton of step by step video guides to walk you through the products and how to use them. Here’s one to get you started:

Earth Day

Minnesotans have been waiting patiently for spring to show its face this season.  Maybe we will just go from winter, to “SPRINTER”, to summer.  April has been filled with rain, sleet, snow, and occasionally the sun poking through for a few minutes here and there.  Let’s take our minds off the weather being so awful and shift our focus to why the weather is acting this way.  Is it Mother Nature just being cruel to us or is it global warming? We may not know, but regardless of this sprinter weather, April has always been a month of keeping the earth clean; or trying to make it better.  In this day and age we should all try to be cautious of what we do to the earth each and every day. Why do we need a month or even a National Earth Day to do something great for the earth? I think we are all guilty of taking those showers a little too long, running the dishwasher half full, or even keeping lights on when they are not needed.  If we all try to make one single change in how we treat the earth each day we will make a difference.  Today is National Earth Day, let us know what you are doing to celebrate Mother Earth, and be entered to win a $25.00 gift card.  You can also stop in and donate $12 to the Audubon Society to help clean up the Mississippi River, and we will GIVE YOU A FREE Light the way candle from Aveda.

Spring?

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for this new season.  Now if we could only push a magic button that would put “Spring” in the air (I would have pushed it a month ago).  Just because the snow is on the ground doesn’t mean that we need to confine ourselves to our Uggs and Wool Sweaters.  Let’s kick winter out, with pointed flats, and sexy high heels. Here’s what we need to get into the spring groove.

For women this season it is all about being feminine.  Soft curls, full bangs that accent our eyes, and brightening up our hair color is a must.  Have your stylist try a new color blocking technique on you- I know you will like what you see!  Look at AVEDA’s limited edition spring collection, bright and vibrant.  We are also seeing lots of corals and gorgeous shades of green, both for make up and in clothing.

Look out April, we are ready for you.
