I’m a bikini wax devotee, but it wasn’t always that way.
I remember being intrigued by the idea, but I was shy and had no clue what to expect, and thus I resorted to “self-styling” and less scandalous swimsuits than I preferred. How does one take the plunge into the world of waxing?
Here is a crash course on taking it all (or just some) off!

Are your highlights looking more like scorched by a fire and less like kissed by the sun?
Every day we hear constant reminders about how to take care of our skin, but we must also educate ourselves on how to take care of our hair. With so many products on the market, it’s hard to decipher what works and what is just another marketing ploy.
These days it’s easy to find chemical hair products available at the local grocery and hot tools in every other infomercial. With all these promises of a fast track to beautiful hair, it isn’t that hard to get confused and end up destroying your once luscious locks. Due to this mis-information, there are thousands of “hair horrors” walking into professional salons everywhere!
That being said, I give you my Top 10 Do’s & Don’ts for Healthy Hair!
The Birthday Girl! Ahhh, that one day a year when it is all about you; the cake, well wishes, gifts, and paparazzi-like picture taking that accompanies your celebration. Just about a year ago, after a fabulous evening of partying, a dreadful revelation occurred. I looked at the photos my friends had snapped and realized my face had changed… alot… overnight! It’s not that I thought it would never happen, I just expected it to be a bit more subtle, like how your hair grows out. or how your shopping bag fills up at Saks.
Years of gentle cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens had convinced me that I was going to be exempt from the tests that Father Time gave me as I moved from my 20’s to 30’s. Not so! I wash my face at night and look up to see that apparently my eyebrows were not waterproof. My usual sunscreen and hat on vacation did not protect me from the affliction of a “sunstache” over my lip. A little less luster, a few more spots, a tiny crease, and another tiny crease, and another- ladies, we are under attack!
So here is the battle plan: Fight Fine Lines! We are going to launch a assault on aging. From the inside out, head to toe, product to program, this is where our arsenal builds up. Check in with us several times each week for the latest strategies. We can rethink our routines, refresh our energy , and renew our armor. Age gracefully? Not without a very beautiful fight!
So, about that “sunstache”….
