Thank you Angela for being this week’s Queen City Pretty and for sharing your very own beauty tips/secrets!
What is your beauty product must have? Since my hair is very fine and tangles easy, my must have is Aveda’s new daily hair repair leave in conditioner…it never makes my hair heavy!
If I were to peek in your makeup bag, what would I find? Ha! What WOULDN’T you find is the question! I LOVE makeup….anything from MAC eyeshadow to chapstick. I have it all. I have an addiction to black eyeliner. I think I have 6 in there..:)
You devote your time to helping others feel good about themselves, how do you pamper yourself after a long week? I think this is something that everyone doesnt do enough of! If I am really worn down, the girls in the spa give AMAZING facials and massages. I also like to get pedicures with my best friend…my 8 year old daughter.
What spa/salon service can you not live without? Unfortunately, I am not really a blonde. With that said I am going to have to say getting my hair colored. Nothing makes me feel better than having fresh bright blonde!
Who is your beauty icon? Sophia Loren without a doubt. She is still beautiful and seems to age so gracefully. I can only to dream to look half as good at her age!
What is your definition of Beauty? It’s impossible to define true beauty because its all based on opinion. I believe that being beautiful is being happy with yourself and not trying to hold yourself up to some unrealistic standard.
Any last words ? We have started offering Coppola Keratin hair treatments at our salon. They reduce frizz by 95% and will relax your curl up to 80%! I have personally done them and seen the difference in my clients hair. They are very safe and gentle and you can use them on clients with a lot of chemical damage because they are made from Keratin protien. Clients have been raving about the results and many say they dont even need a straightening iron after they blowdry (these are curly frizzy haired people)!! If you are interested please call the salon to book your appointment! -> (704) 644-4500
Ok, so maybe I am not revealing ALL of my secrets but I am revealing some of my very own beauty secrets. Each week ,our Queen City Pretties share their favorite beauty products. It’s only fair that I share what’s in my own shower and make-up bag. You will currently find each of these products in my shower, makeup bag, or product shelves (Yes, I said shelves LOL) So, here you go but be warned…..I have a love of products. Some may even call it an addiction. That’s ok too. I will not apologize for loving products that make me feel like a million dollars!
Origins Antioxidant Night-Time Mask with White Tea (This product is not currently carried on Origin’s website)
