Update that Image!
Apr 09, 2011
As a 46 year old Salon Owner, wife and mother of a 2.5 year old, I am always striving to look and feel great. I almost feel it is my obligation to look the part, but where do I look for an updated image? I am lucky enough to have a team of amazing make-up artists and stylists that are looking out for my best interest. About every 6 months I get a gentle (or not so gentle) nudge that it is time for an image update.
I have also found my inspiration from an outside influence. ~ Where, you ask? An un-likely source J-Lo. Yes, Jennifer Lopez. I admit it, I watch American Idol every week.

Gila Rut hits New York Fashion Week 2011
Mar 07, 2011
Another successful trip to NYFW (fashion week) I’ll share the highlights & keep it short & sweet…………
What’s hot this season? Read on…
The clothing have a beautiful classic look with strong linear edges. It seemed most designers were inspired by the minimal. Beautifully hand crafted materials & soft tones of blue, red & gray were the hit this season.
The hair was classic. Ponytails, lopped ballerina buns & romantic curls all polished to perfection with the help of Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener & the hold of the Control Force hairspray.
The Make-Up was fresh & light with deep tones of peach for the cheeks. The lips were glossy with a hint of pink and for the eyes were a light shadow to give a ‘bright eyed’ look.
Stay tuned for your access to the next shows & fashion trends, coming fall of 2011

New York Fashion Week, Here I Come…
Aug 13, 2010
I just got back from one of my favorite places, NYC! I am happy to leave the heat & humidity, but it was all worth it, as my journey was the start of a new adventure.
What the “H” am I talking about you ask? Well I was in Hot ass, Humid ass, Manhattan to train for the ‘2010 Fall Fashion’ Week!!!!!
I can hardly hold back my excitement. I wish I had a lot of cool stuff to share with you, but the truth is what I learned would probably not appeal to you, LOL. It might even appear ugly to most people. Let’s not forget that most fashion & hair trends always start that way.
I had the opportunity to learn from Jon Reyman, an amazing stylist & veteran to Fashion week. He will be heading our team for this year’s back stage madness.
All I have … Read More
