Japanese Cherry Blossoms Hand Crafted our of Hair

This time of year always feels so colorful. The season after winter and before summer, in which vegetation begins to appear, is what we know as Spring. Surrounded by beautiful blooms in Florida I always find such inspiration.

This year’s theme for Shu Uemura Gallery Of Style is Tokyo-Rama, showcasing the versatility of Tokyo’s landscape. I couldn’t help but imagine beautiful Japanese Cherry Blossoms hand crafted out of hair itself.

 

• My Inspiration •
Japanese gardens are modeled with spiritual and philosophical ideas in mind. In 1912, Japan gave more than 3,000 cherry-blossom trees to the United States as a gift to honor the growing […]

This Month We’re Celebrating Our Event “In Style” With Christina Santanelli

Who is Christina Santanelli?

Christina spent 12 years in New York City giving her a unique perspective on fashion; specifically how each individual’s personal style has a direct connection to who they are and how they live their lives. Having worked in the finance industry it was always important to make a good first impression and, let’s face it, a good first impression has a lot to do with how put together you are.

Thankfully, not everyone has to live in the corporate world but everyone in some capacity or another cares about how they represent themselves to the world (whether professionally […]

Toss the Mascara and Leave the Dark Smudges for the Raccoons!

If you’re like most women, mascara is a key item in your makeup bag. We whisk it on our lashes in hopes of making them look longer and fuller. But what if you could have that look as soon as you wake up in the morning?

Eyelash Extensions

Your wish might be granted: Eyelash extensions are a growing trend at spas and salons. They completely eliminate all need for mascara.

Eyelash extensions are individual lashes, made of a synthetic fiber such as silk, or 100% real mink fur, which our professional glues on one by one to each of your top natural lashes.

Eyelash […]

Working International Bridal Fashion Week – NYC

I can still taste the Kerastase Powder Bluff flying through the air.

Working behind the scenes in New York City for International Bridal Fashion Week was such a rush. Wedding hair has always been my passion alongside runway hair, so having the opportunity to do both made this such an incredible experience. Each model shared a new story and each designer had a new look for us to create. Watching the craftsmanship of our lead stylists, Akemi and Nina, was an experience of its own. I had the time of my life!

Sometimes I wish everyday was full of as much excitement […]

Glamour at the Grand! Note from Carmen

 

Hello Grand Beauties, aren’t you loving what’s going on in beauty?

It’s like the designers have just gone mad and have given us permission to put everything and anything together and there aren’t many rules.

We can wear white in winter for example, but it has to be the right fabric and cut.

Vintage Looks and Layering

One of my favorites this season are vintage looks which I think we can all probably dig something out of our closets. Lol:)

Layering with different shapes and textures is also huge this season, mismatched plaids, floral prints,and the look we all love, the nice girl look with […]
