  • What SPF moisturizer do you use?

    Throughout my 12 years as an Aesthetician for MFX Salon, I am often asked about product recommendations for skin and body care.  I stand by Aveda 100% because I truly believe in the company as a whole and that they strive to produce the best products on the market.  One of the most requested product recommendations that I get is which SPF, Oil-Free Moisturizer I use or can't stand to not have on my bathroom counter.  At the present...

  • What eye shadow color is right for you?

    As an Aveda make-up artist, the most common situation that I encounter is my guests not knowing what to do with their eyes. I hear things such as "Well I'm not sure what color to pick," or "I just put on eye-liner and mascara". In one regard I'm sad to hear that so many ladies are stuck, but I'm also happy to inform them of how easy it actually is to use eye shadow.

  • Am I too old for long hair?

    It is remarkable how many times I've been asked by my female clients, "Am I too old for long hair?"  or "At what age do I go to a short cut?"  Well the answer is there is no defining age when a woman should cut off her hair and your age should not define your hair length.  What I tell my clients is that they should feel comfortable with the length of their hair; that their hair style should flatter them and enhance their natural beauty; and that at any length they need to be able ...

It's my most sought after shade, and it fades away super fast, so when my clients ask for PINK, I usually have to tell them they'll need to come back in every few weeks to redo it, or I'll send them home with instructions to do touch-ups themselves.

  • New Dry Remedy Oil Quenches Even the Driest, Parched Hair!

    Every once and a while a new product comes out that completely changes everything.  For me that product is the new Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil.  I received a sample of this oil a few months ago and I am amazed by how much it has changed my hair!  Only 2 drops of the oil used on wet or dry hair adds tons of shine and moisture.  I was surprised that my hair behaved so much better when blowdrying and when I straightened it with a hot tool my hair had so much more shine and...
