  • Buff away that dry winter skin! Grab a new scrub and exfoliate your skin. You will have healthier, younger looking skin just in time for spring! Try one of our signature facials - our indulgent facial incorporates the Sea Water Pearl Ritual from Phytomer and is perfect for dry, dehydrated skin.

  • Change your perfume. New season calls for new fragrance! Spring is going to require more subtle scents than your winter perfumes. Try out some floral or fruity scents to start off your spring.

  • Get your hair looking healthy! Time to ditch the beanie. Invest in healthy hair but cutting off some of your locks for a more light weight cut. Dry hair from the winter? Ask your stylist for a moisturizing treatment to go with your fresh highlights.

  • Spring nail colors! Spring nails are our absolute favorite with lots of subtle light pinks colors and pastels. Change up your nail color and book your appointment for a spring mani.

  • After months of your boots it’s time to stop neglecting those toes! Get in for a pedicure before the spring, give your feet the pampering they deserve. It’s an important time of year to help with any dryness on your skin, throw on some polish on your toes and remove any calluses. You’ll be ready to step out and ready for your vacation this season!

  • Get your SPF protection for your skin. Choose the right protection for your skin for the upcoming sunny weather. Yes, we know it’s going to be absolutely gorgeous to be outside but don’t forget to wear SPF! Talk with your esthetician to find the right product for your skin.

  • Time to ditch your old makeup! You need to get some new colors for your cosmetic collection anyway - so go through all of your makeup before spring begins and get rid of the old stuff, and the cosmetics you never wear. Make room for the new and exciting!

Makeup:

    It’s summertime and that means it’s going to be humid with hot temperatures. So when it comes to your makeup you’re going to want to get it right. The top trends for eye makeup are going to be dark eyes. We like to call it rockstar eyes - dark liners and metallic eyeshadows. Pair this look with bright, bold lip colors -  classic red is the way to go! For mascara, this summer - don’t forget to put mascara on your bottom lashes to give yourself the spider lash look and make you look like even more of a rock star. For your brows, brush them up - bushy, pushed up arches is going to give a youthful look and it’s totally trending this summer. For this look, you can use a tinted brow gel.

Hair:

    2018 is bringing us some of the best hairstyles for the hot weather! Low at the base ponytails are going to be your go-to! It’s soft, classy, feminine and even romantic. It can be used as a casual day look and also evening look.

    Whether you just got out of the pool, the shower or just like to use some hair gel - the wet hair look is standing out. Sleek and slicked back this summer for your every day or if you’re trying to achieve the runway look.

    Messy updos is another easy look for the summertime. Twist your hair in buns, messy ponytail, or half up, half down. It’s an effortless look that also is super cute with your cute summer outfit and sandals on the beach.

 

Benefits of Microneedling

What is microneedling?

    Microneedling is a minimum invasive skin treatment. A collection of fine needles make invisible punctures on the top layer of your skin. We know - it sounds like it’s going to hurt. But it is actually completely painless and extremely effective for the overall look and health of your skin. Microneedling has become very popular among beauty fanatics because it’s actually showing results.

What are the benefits of microneedling and why may I need it?

    Microneedling is more than just a skincare treatment for acne and your pores. There are lots of different benefits as to why microneedling could be right for you and your skin. It’s also not just for your face. Microneedling can be done in any area on your body that may need the treatment.

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Stop aging in its tracks with microneedling. Just after a few sessions, you will notice the reduction of fine lines, crows feet and deep wrinkles in the forehead.

  • Repairs visible scars. Acne scars be gone!

  • Reverses sun damage and pigmentation. Microneedling stimulates collagen growth which is the best way to repair sun damage and discoloration.

  • Helps aging skin. Smooths and tightens aging skin.

  • Shrinks pores. Microneedling pierces the skin and plumps pores which makes them appear smaller and close pores.

  • Helps your skincare products work better. Creating invisible holes in your skin with microneedling - your expensive skincare products will be able to absorb better in your skin. Most of the time when you’re using these products they are just penetrating your skin and not absorbing.

The Latest Beauty Trend: Eyelash Extensions​​​​​​​

eyelashextensionsblog.png

No matter how hard you try with changing up your mascara every month, or using different eye creams - nothing is making those lashes fuller and longer. But, have you tried eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are the best way to get that natural fluttering lash look.

    What are eyelash extensions? They are semi-permanent false lashes that get applied on top of your natural lashes. Basically like hair extensions for your eyelashes, one lash at a time.

    A typical eyelash extension appointment will start off by choosing the type of lash-look you want to go for. Shape, curl and length. The usual appointment will take about one hour to two hours - depending on how dramatic you want your lashes. You will be lying down during your appointment and the technician will fuse each lash extension to the base of each of your lashes one by one.

    What is the upkeep for extensions? You will have to go back and get them filled every three to five weeks - depending on how careful you are with your eyes. They can definitely last longer! To make them last avoid steam or water for the first day, and then avoid oil based makeup and makeup remover around your eyelids and lash line. This can break down the adhesive resulting in the lash extensions to fall off.

    You CAN wear makeup with your lash extensions. It is suggested you stay away from mascara. This will do the same thing it does to your natural lashes - clump. Leaving your extensions damaged.

    Now, if you’ve always dreamed of those feathery lashes and want to bat your eyes down the runway - book your appointment with us today for your eyelash extensions!
