Sharing the Joy....

Many people ask me if I like being a makeup/hair artist. Normally I answer back with a quick "yes", but truthfully that doesn't really cover the half of it. I don't "like" my job, I LOVE IT! Why?...well if you were in my shoes you would know exactly what I meant.
Even though I'm a makeup/hair artist, I wear a variety of other hats in my life as a mother, daughter, sister, wife, artist, teacher, beauty expert and a business woman. All of these elements add a lot of flavor to the mix, so I just thought to myself "you've logged a lot of hours on this interesting journey of yours, so you might as well share the ride". So I am! That will be the only way for you to understand what I love about my profession and why I love living in the moment....



• Combing is less detrimental than brushing
o When the hair is wet, it is stretched out and therefore very fragile. So use a wide toothed comb on damp hair rather than a brush.
• Correct shampooing will not dry out the hair
o Try using a professional product. Store bought shampoos are too strong for most hair types. Imagine shampooing your hair with Tide or Cascade! Bumble and Bumble is my favorite product line!!!!
• Wet hair should not be rubbed since hair is very sensitive
o Most of the time, you probably towel dry your hair too roughly. Try just blotting the hair with a towel or squeezing the towel around your hair to get the moisture out.
• Hormone imbalance and crash dieting can trigger temporary hair loss
o Don’t stress! It’s just temporary. But if the problem persists, you need to consider using DENSITY THERAPY shampoo, conditioner and complex by Bumble and Bumble.

Here are some other interesting facts

• On average, a man spends about five months of his life shaving, shaving about 20,000 times.
• On average, a hair strand's life span is five and a half years.
• On average redheads have 90,000 hairs. People with black hair have about 110,000 hairs.
• Humans have about the same number of hair follicles as a chimpanzee.
• The average human head weighs about eight pounds.
• The reason why hair turns gray as we age is because the pigment cells in the hair follicle start to die, which is responsible for producing "melanin" which gives the hair colour.
• The fastest growing tissue in the human body is hair.
