Ummmmm I thought they would be thicker ?

Like most beauty based small businesses, a lot of my new clients come from referrals from current clients. 95 % of the time this is AWESOME and I love meeting friends and family of my client base. Sometimes my current client has lots of natural hair to work with leading to a really full outcome. This can lead to my new client being disappointed with their results after the application is complete if they do not have the same amount of hair growth as their friend or family member. It is important to remember that with a SINGLE STRAND system we can only enhance what is already existing. Meaning, that if you have lots of natural eyelash hair, you will have lots of extensions added to the available adult hair. On the flip side  . . . if you do not have much hair to work with from the beginning than your look will not be as full as someone who has more hair than you. Either way, the result will be exactly as promised – it will look like you are wearing fabulous mascara that doesn’t wash off or run. Any certified lash stylist will only lash the available adult hair, leaving the immature hair growth alone. Our primary concern is the long term health of the eyelash hair and we will not do anything to harm it. Clusters, semi’s or multiples provide a fuller look for those with sparse lash growth but at what cost ?. The cost is damage to the natural hair and the heartache of waiting for it to grow back.

Salt Water ? No Problem

Here’s an interesting fact: A lot of my current regular clients started as vacationers looking to pull together their look while taking it easy in the tropics or shooting down the hills. There seems to be a misconception that salt water will eat away at the bond of the extension. The answer to that question is pure and simple – NOPE  . . . your extensions are just fine in the salt water. Tons of my clients dive and snorkel with these babies and emerge from the sea like beautiful streak free mermaids (I could be pushing it here). However the fact remains that lashes are suited for vacations and really after sun block extensions should be next on your vacation “To Do” list.

Making Pretty a Priority for 2012

A new year brings new resolutions, most of us will resolve to better ourselves in one way or another. If your goal is to lose weight that will likely involve the gym, cardio and weights are going to melt your make-up. Get lashes and stay pretty will improving the rest of you. With lash extensions you can sweat, swim, wink at the hot guy on the treadmill next to you. For those that have decided to engage in more “Self Care” lashes are where its at.      I had no idea what self care meant and decided to find out what it is, self care is doing anything that makes you feel good and lifts your spirits. Lashes are mini Dr.Feelgoods, every time you look in the mirror there they are ! Many ladies will decide that 2012 is the year to get out there and find Mr.Right. In this case lash extensions serve a multitude of purposes. Lashes are instant self confidence, never worry about the lifting of strip lashes or be concerned about running eye make-up. It’s a fact that most men prefer a more natural look and the Jersey Shore look is not hot. There is the strong possibility that the date goes well, leading to possible sleep over (just sayin’ !). Look as good in the morning as you did the night before. This is sooooooo important for many reasons, now you can stay have a cup of coffee or accept a brunch invite without trying to hide under the table.

Don’t worry doll, we’ve got you back and making pretty a priority is our job !

Dear Santa . . . .

Dear Santa,

I know your super busy and a man on the move so I’ll keep it short, all I want for Christmas is Glamour. I understand this might be a tall order and if you’re unsure about glam actually is consult Mrs.Clause cause she’s FABULOUS ! I would like to sleep in an extra 20 mins, swim and tan on my upcoming vaca without having runny eye make-up, look as good getting up as I did going to bed (this one is super important for numerous reasons – again consult with Mrs.Clause ). I want to look pulled together with just a little blush and lip gloss, look alert even when I’ve had a long night and receive tons of compliments on how great I look. I know your rolling your eyes Santa ! all of this is alot easier than it appears – all I want for Christmas is eyelash extensions. Can you find someone certified to do it ? Oh and one more thing . . . can you make sure they are located in Mississauga, Brampton, Burlington and Toronto. I’m a lady on the move and I’d like to have options for my relashing. Don’t worry Santa, you just have to spring for the first set of lashes – I’ll take care of the rest. I want nothing else for Christmas and Santa you better deliver,  I know where you live !

Yours Truly,

Miss Soon To Be Gorgeous Lashes

Tis’ the Season for Hair Tinsel !

What’s hair tinsel you ask ? It’s bling braided right into you locks – wash it, curl it, blow dry and yes you can even have your hair coloured with it in. Without using any kind of adhesive, the tinsel is braided with a few strands of hair for a little shimmer that has ALOT of impact. It will work it’s way out of the hair over a few weeks without causing any damage. A party ain’t a party unless your hair is blinging !!!!!!!!

An appt for hair tinsel can be made at the Brampton, Burlington and Toronto locations – it only takes about 15 mins – no time at all to become the talk of the Christmas party scene.

Bikini Shopping . . . Muy Bueno !

Totally unrelated lashes but 100 % related to customer service, gotta tell you about my experience at Bikini Bay. Bikini shopping is no fun for most of us and strikes dread into the hearts of the average women. Now let’s add 30 additional pds on that – yup thats right I’ve gained 30 pds this year as a result of no longer smoking and a total lifestyle change. So, when I booked a vaca with a friend I knew that at some point I would have to make a trek to the mall. Off I go with my fiance in tow to Yorkdale Mall, after a visit to another Bikini store where I was ignored until I had to ask for help. Left in the change room without any help at all – I took a look at the price tag of the only bikini that I liked  . . . $120.00 for the top and $89.00 for the bottom. WHAT !!! hecks no, I’m not spending that on a bikini I don’t intend on wearing next year if the gym and I get along. Leaving Yorkdale in tears – now what was I going to do ? I gathered my nerve and went to Bikini Bay at Shopper’s World Mall. Greeted as soon as I walked in and then a flurry of suggestions of items I would never have  pick up on my own, off to the change room we went. The person helping me was right there with me the entire time, helping to tie up the tops and making suggestions about matching bottoms. She selected colours that suited me and styles that flattered (or as flattering as they could be considering the present situation). I went into the store to buy 1 and left with 3 BUT because I bought mix and match I actually have close to 9 combinations. Because the person helping me was a sweetheart – she informed me that when the bottoms are too big next year ( such faith she has in me !) I can keep the tops and only have to invest in new bottoms.

After my visit to Bikini Bay, My faith in customer service has been restored and I’m looking forward to rocking my new bikini’s in Punta Cana. If you live near Shopper’s World and have a need for a swim suit – this place is a MUST. Or even if you don’t live close, it’s worth the trip.

Fresh Beautiful Skin Studio . . . Hecks Yes !

I’m not going to front, my skin in my 30’s is like an alien on my face. It feels different, looks like someone I used to know and has become difficult to get along with. I’ve been pretty lucky in skin department and although I use good products – I’ve never really thought much about skin treatments. Then I turned 30 and skin treatments went from the back to the front of my mind. This is where Stephanie Daga skin guru and founder of  Fresh Beautiful – The Skin Studio comes in  . . . or rather comes to the rescue. My skin was SUPER dry and not so nice to the touch so we went with the Preserve + Nurture combination. First the skin was cleansed and then we got to the good stuff – CRYSTAL  MICRODERMABRASION. Sloughing away the dry layer of skin first – we did 2 passes over the skin. I was expecting it to feel like sand paper but it didn’t feel like that at all. Next step was a cooling hydrating mask that felt like it was sent from heaven. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better – the cold therapy part started. I swear my skin opened right up to let the goodness in – my face was tingling and if I didn’t know better I think I was  already producing much needed collagen.

Making sure to follow instructions – leave your face make-up free until tomorrow, stay away from sunlight unless wearing a good block and don’t touch your face ( this one was not my fav . . . my skin was so glowy I wanted to run my fingers all over it !). The next day I woke up and stumbled over to the mirror – my fiancee looks over at me and says “wow you must have had a great sleep, you look so rested”. After biting my tongue and NOT saying “So every other morning I look like a hag ?”, I thought he was right my skin looked plump and the red around my nose and chin were gone. I sat down to start the daily application of foundation etc and after reviewing my face I decided a little bronzer and blush was all that was needed. Thats right people – I left my house without concealer or foundation, call the papers and hire the marching band.

Here’s the straight good ladies – there’s no point in spending a bundle on expensive creams if it isn’t getting to the layers of skin that need it. Also give this a whirl before drilling and filling – frozen faces are not hot. Fresh Beautiful – The Skin Studio will deliver  . . . hands down, ask my gorgeous skin !

Do your self a favour and invest in your best accessory – Lash Extensions. Spend more time on your hair cause your eyes won’t need it – you already have instant glam. Late nights are part of the deal for a lady in demand, wake up looking as good as you did going to bed (This could be good news for many reasons  . . . just sayin’).

Here’s what Blushpretty has to say about the upcoming workshop:

On Sunday November 13, 2011, from 11 am to 1 pm, BlushPretty and Flirt Custom Lash Studio will be hosting an “info-shop” … a chance for you to get a first hand look at lash extensions, how they are applied, how they work and how to maintain them. Sommer will be there front and centre to walk you through it and answer any questions you may have.

Now, there is no obligation to book if you decide that extensions aren’t for you … BUT … we do have a great deal for those who want to take the leap! For anyone who attends our November 13 info-shop and books a future appointment with Sommer on that day … they’ll receive a full set of lashes plus an after-care kit for just $125. (The regular price for just the lash extensions is $150).

The info-shop will take place on November 13, 2011 at the BlushPretty studio located at 313 Queen St. West, Suite 204 (right on the corner of Queen and John).  Door opens at 11 am and ends at 1 pm.  Bookings for lash extensions applications will begin on December 4, 2011, also held at the BlushPretty Studio.

Flawless With Dawlface

Just in case you were wondering weddings are not the only time of the year to appear flawless. I had a MAJOR need of flawless in August when Flirt Custom Lash Studio celebrated it’s one year anniversary. There was only one person to call  . . . Lindsay Daw from Dawlface Makeup Artistry. In she came ON TIME and PREPARED for a total overhaul – I felt bad for her. After asking some important questions I didn’t even think about like : what are you wearing ? What colour are your shoes ? (GAWD I love this lady !), are we going for glam or subtle ?  After mixing, testing and double checking in the light – I was HOT !!!! if I do say so myself. I received a TON of compliments that night and really Lindsay was the one that deserved them. Because sharing is caring I now present to you Dawlface MakeUp Artistry – don’t say I never gave you anything !
