Makeup

Makeup is a big part of the social media and part of our daily routines nowadays. I love that makeup is a great way to express self creativity! I own a lot of different brands of makeup and have a lot of product that I don't necessarily use every day but I enjoy having all types so I can change my look regularly.  Prepare for mini rant :)

I wear makeup for me and only me and my look changes depending on whether I'm going to work, out to do errands or if I'm going out for the evening. I get lots of compliments on it, sure, but I wear it on a daily basis and I typically have a different variation of a smokey eye because I like how it looks. But if I miss one day because I slept in or just didn't feel like putting eye shadow on that day... I always get the question.... "are you sick?". Nope. I was just lazy this morning or I'm having a bad makeup day. And the reverse of this question also bothers me when I say, "oh I think I'm getting sick, etc."...."hmmmm. you don't look sick." Well there's a reason for that, I put effort into my look everyday to look presentable for the industry I work in. It's very frustrating because we get told that we look better with a natural look vs makeup on and then when we have the natural look we get told you're not as pretty or you're prettier with makeup on. We live in a world that too much bullying and cyber bullying goes on that we should be helping each other feel great about ourselves and love who we are. (I know...really cheesy but it's true!) So whatever your reason for wearing or not wearing makeup is, own it because at the end of the day if you feel more comfortable because of it, that's all that matters!

kqnAny of you on Pinterest?  It's another one of the many types of social media applications for your smart phone, lap/desk top, or tablet.  A place where you can place all your visual ideas, conquests, or wishes.  Search one thing, many things, and when you think that you've come up with something new? Nope.  It's been done. At least ten times...

I often wonder what will become of us in ten years?  What new aspect will the media bring upon us then?  What will we do when nothing is new anymore?  What type of services will we be able to use to expose each other with after the days of 'tweeting', 'gramming', and 'liking' are gone?  Will it even ever end??

so sexy

We were chatting in the staff room a while back and the topic of our convo was how to gain inspiration.  Inspiration for our job specifically.  Hairstyling can be so broad and then yet so specific, and at times I think many stylists can feel like they're doing the same thing over and over again.

great shot

I give you Pinterest! Our boards cover all things fashion and beauty related.  If you're feeling like you are in a hair rut or not to sure what your next appointment should be booked for?  Check out Pinterest and see if anything there juggles your creativity.  I guess this is the new way to get inspired.  The internet will always keep us wanting more and finding more.

natural beauty

I love looking at hair and I pay attention to the styling of images.  The hair and styling of the images I've posted inspire me to be more natural and to embrace the beauty that we are born with. (obviously these women are practically models but who cares?...)  These women all possess a natural look that I'm drawn to and thanks to the internet, I will never really need a muse... :)

Peace
