Positive Words from a Client

Diane came to my salon with long, damaged hair.  I did a shorter cut and updated the color — an entire new look.  She looks wonderful!  This was for a fashion show called the”What Women Want” Expo in Carol Stream, Illinois.

How to Prepare for Holiday Travel – What Beauty Products to Pack

Appropriately, the second installment of this two-part travel series is being written on a plane! Catch up with part one here.

So you’ve packed your clothes and accessories and now the question is, what should you include in your toiletries bag? Besides the obvious, we’ve compiled a list of five beauty must-haves that are great to travel with. Hey, the holidays are hectic enough without having to stress out about restocking your beauty bag.

Pureology Hydrate Hydra Whip: Hair Masque

Pureology Hydra Whip

from pureology.com

This deep conditioner will nourish your strands and protect it from dry winter conditions — apply to clean, damp hair, leave in for two to five minutes, comb through, and rinse out for healthy, touchable, enviable hair all season long. (Available at Visions for the Art of Hair)

Pureology Colour Fanatic

New Colour Fanatic spray by Pureology

Pureology.com

This new product from Pureology is a moisturizing leave-in conditioner that will detangle your locks and help calm frizz. For more about this must-have, please visit our previous post. (Available at Visions for the Art of Hair)

Pureology Purify Shampoo

Purify Shampoo by Pureology

pureology.com

If you’re a frequent swimmer, this is an excellent product to remove chlorine from colour-treated hair. If not, Purify Shampoo will also gently remove styling residue. For excessive buildup or badly damaged greenness from chlorine, shampoo the hair a second time, but do not rinse. Place a cap over the hair and place under dryer for 20 minutes before rinsing out. (Available at Visions for the Art of Hair)

NARS The Multiple

NARS The Multiple makeup stick

from sephora.com

Available in an impressive variety of neutral and rosy shades, this one makeup stick is a travel favorite. Use it as an illuminator for the cheeks to add a glow to your face, or even use it as lip or eye colour (even on body!). This one stick alone is TSA friendly (it’s solid, not liquid), small enough to toss in your purse, and replaces so many other makeup so you can travel light. (For FAQs and information, go here.)

BB cream

These products only made a huge splash in the beauty industry here in the United States recently, but it isn’t just hoopla. The right BB (or CC) cream for your skin can triple as moisturizer, sunscreen, and even foundation (they’re usually tinted). Remember, keep it light, both on your face and in your suitcase.
