Big Texas Blow Out - A Head Full of Brushes Just Got Easier

Texas Tresses
Get a Big & Beautiful Blow out
with Ionic & CeramicDetachable Brushes
As a Texas girl, I like everything big. Big hair, big diamonds... big personality. It's hard getting a Texas sized blow out here in New York where every one wants stick straight hair. Styling hair with a lot of volume, swing and bounce can be challenging, that is why I just about did a hoedown when I saw this detachable brush set from Scalpmaster.

This set will create a perfect blow-out because it has a detachable barrel so the brushes can stay in the hair for a big, full "set". Simply connect a brush barrel to the handle, section hair, roll into barrel, secure with clamp and release handle, let is stay for 10-15 minutes until cool then gentle release for bounce. Hit that hair with some setting spray and viola... Miss Texas hair!

Create a perfect blow-out every time with this multi-function brush set. Detachable brush heads can be used as rollers to hold hair in place.

Set includes:
Two 1-3/4" Brush Barrels
Two 2" Brush Barrels
Two 2-1/4" Brush Barrels
One Brush Barrel
Six Roller Clamps
Storage Tote

I would retail this to all my Southern Belle beauties that like big hair styles that last a few days!  Also great for salon use.

Poorly Fading Tans? Keep Sunless Tans Looking Great, All Year Long!

Even if you are spray tanning clients with the best airbrush tanning mist in the world... splotchy fading can occur.  There are a myriad of reasons why, but the thing I want to discuss is HOW to prevent it.

Just like with other professional salon services, some maintenance is required to experience exceptional, long lasting results.  I want to address some of the most common airbrush tanning complaints and inquiries, and how to avoid them.

Help clients maintain their tan.
Offer a great Retail Line!
Problem: "A Spray Tan turns my facial pores black!" The dark color guide in most spray tan and lotion tan formulas loves to linger inside pores. I have especially noticed it is very pronounced on my chin and nose... YUCKY! Not pretty when your boyfriend and you are close-up... who wants to stare at blackheads?

Solution:: Use Extended Vacation's Shimmering Sands Facial Tanner.  It is golden, and does not contain any dyes or tints that stain pores.  It tans beautifully after one application, but if your are a tanorexic like me, you can apply 2 coats, 2 days in a row for a toffee toasted glow.

Problem: My tan is fading all splotchy, it looks sloppy.

Solution: Exfoliate before your appointment and after. That's right. As your tan begins to fade, using Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub 1-3 times a week will help brighten and even out dull, sunless color. This is extremely helpful for clients with light skin, and clients that come in frequently (every 7+ days or so). Tanning over a old spray tan is like applying a coat of nail polish over old, chipped nail polish... it's never going to be even and smooth unless you remove the old layers! No more splotchy tans.

Problem: My spray tan clients don't want their tan to fade at all!

Solution: They need to use an extender that was made for sunless tans. We love Ultimate Tan
Vacationing clients? Tell them to pack
Ultimate Tan Refreshment
It will keep tans DARK
Refreshment
by Extended Vacation.  One application of this lotion will darken skin one entire shade. Great for active clients and vacationing ones that are exercise (sweat), enjoy pools, hot tubs and swimming in the ocean.  Also great to apply after exfoliating with  Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub.  

Problem: My clients' skin is dry. They said they are applying their own lotion and it's not helping.

Solution: The vast majority of drugstore lotions are loaded with mineral oil - which has been know to remove spray tans (google it).  Just like I can't use drugstore shampoo on my expensive head of hi-lights, (they strip away my hair color), using lotions or creams loaded with mineral oil can erode a spray tan.  This is why we love Caribbean Smoothie Body Cream.  It prolongs spray tans and sunless tans with it's special formulation of cream of the crop ingredients! It is formulated like an exquisite anti-aging facial cream... one you might find in a department store!

Problem: My clients' arrive to their appointments unprepared.

Solution: SluffWIPES can save your spray tanning day! The double sided wipes prep skin with a soft layer and an exfoliating layer. They are also great for removing mist from client's feet, nails, Achilles tendon, wrists, etc. before they walk out the door.

The entire Extended Vacation line was created for Sunless Tanning PERFECTION, and it is available at wholesale prices (to licensed beauty professionals) so you can retail it to your clients!  Be sure to check out the Perfect Sunless Tanning Brochures that help explain these products and their benefits to your clients!

When Your Skin Gets a COLD too! Spa Treatments to Comfort Skin

If having a cold is not miserable enough, we have to contend with our skin getting sick too.  It never fails to happen to me! My skin goes haywire, and I can usually tell when I am starting to get sick by how my skin is behaving.

Clues of Seasonal Cold SKIN Blues:
- Zits gone wild. New shapes, sizes and colors cropping up all the face.
Restore Your Skin's
Healthy Appearance
After a NASTY cold!
- Over dryness from nasal sprays, decongestants, antihistamines
- Puffy and droopy eyes and cheeks that make me look like a morphed former version of myself.
- Watery, runny eyes that burn with every blink.

And these symptoms can stick around for about a week or so AFTER the cold has passed. It can be kind of depressing to feel better and look in the mirror and see your skin didn't get the memo!  So I wanted to share some products that you can use in your professional Facial Treatments on your clients this cold season (once they are well of course).

BEST Bets for De-Puffing, Hydrating & Rejuvenating:

Cucumber Gel Mask by Amber: Has the ability to enhance water retention in tissue allowing the epidermis to achieve greater suppleness. With the combination of cucumber extract, allantoin and aloe vera this product is effective in soothing irritated skin.

Elasto-Gel Sinus Mask: I'm obsessed with this mask! It can be used hot or cold (I like it warm - a few seconds in the microwave) and is perfect for relief of pain and swelling of superficial soft tissue in the eye, nose and sinus area. Wrap with a thin layer facial diaper or disposable soft towel. Cover is removable for washing too.

Lymphatic Drainage - The IONTO Skin Regulator:

- Four areas that benefit from the skin regulator:
- Nerves, blood and lymph vessels: relieves blockage and removes waste and toxins via blood and lymph drainage.
- Connective tissue: balances the flow and activates the metabolism at the cellular level.
- Epidermis: increases absorption of active substances.
- Muscles: loosens tension.

Ahhhhhh... relief & results!

Slow The Grow: Papaya Infused Concentrate Delays Re-Growth

Post Epilation Treatment  20 Pack
Let's face it - waxing is no fun. The pain or discomfort does not even bother me, it is getting undressed from the bottom down every 6-8 weeks and having someone face first in my "biscuit" (thank you Honey Boo Boo)! Being fully exposed is more painful than the waxing itself.  If there was a way to slow down the frequency of my humiliation I would be thrilled!  

Natural extracts of Papaya and Vitamin E
Actively slow down hair regrowth and nourish skin.
I have tried a few other brands of post depilatory products from our beauty supply store, but I could not really tell if they were effective.  What intrigued me about these Depileve Gold Concentrate Post Epilation Ampoules is that they contain Papaya.  I know that Papain (papaya enzyme) is an extremely effective enzyme used in many of our best selling spa products, and I recently read that it has been used for thousands of years for effectively prolonging the effects of hair removal.  So this sounds very interesting! I know that so many of our spa and salon clients trust the Depileve brand in their beauty businesses.  So today I picked up a 20 pack to try out in hopes to see a longer time between wax appointments! I feel that clients would greatly appreciate their waxing professional offering ampoules / post wax treatments like this. Check them out at PureSpa.com today! Depileve Gold Concentrate Ampoules

Smell It, Feel It, Hear It Through the Grapevine

Grapes - They are delicious to eat, even better to drink, but what does your skin think of them?

My latest obsession is the Vineyard Collection, an entire product line specifically formulated with Nutraceutical Grade, 100% California Grape Extracts.  A personal favorite in the collection is the  Luxurious Body Wash by VINEYARD COLLECTION Grapes.

In addition to California Grape Extracts, this body wash also contains such nourishing ingredients as:



This a fantastic product to retail to clients for 3 main reasons - It looks good, it smells good and it feels good.  The packaging is attractive, the scent is a delicious and delicate blend of white orchids, grapes, and vanilla.  Lastly, this wash provides a sudsy lather that leaves skin feeling silky smooth.
