I’m pretty excited for the customers that are fans of the Beverly Johnson line.  We rarely have this type of promotion.  I think we’ve done storewide promos before that may include some Beverly Johnson items, but never anything this huge! I’m happy to announce that for this week only, you can get 20% off any Beverly Johnson item! What an awesome deal!  Just be sure to enter the code you received in your email upon checkout.  Deal ends 10/30 so hurry while the promo is still going on!

Fresh Accessory Ideas!

Posted in General on October 16th, 2009 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

As beauty addicts, we’re always looking for ways to improve our look or redefine ourselves in any visible way.  We change our makeup, hair and clothes according to the seasons and even between seasons!  For social butterflies, being slaves to the ever-changing fashion world is a must.  We’re constantly on the prowl for the new and never-before-seen looks and to show it off at the next event first!  For those that have run out of ideas or are looking for a more cost-effective way to create a new look, I’ve gathered some inspiring hair ideas for your weekend!

Personally my favorite but a bit hard to pull off is the over-usage of plastic hairbands seen on the YSL runway.  Keep in mind that you’ll need to layer and use anywhere from 6-10 various plastic bands. This look is probably best for oval shaped faces, but you can try it just to see if it flatters your bone structure.

Begin by sweeping your hair into a high knot pony tail.  Since the plastic bands expand and conform to your headshape, you canbegin by starting at the front of your forhead and slipping each band one by one back.  It should look like the photo below.  Try it with a messy knot on top, or leave your ponytail down for a different look.  I’d probably wear this style with edgier/darker clothes since the look is considered sleek and harsh.

For a different twist on the ponytail, slick your hair back and use an elastic to create a low ponytail. Split the ponytail into two smaller ones.  Attach colored extensions on either half or even both.  Once they’re attached, twist each half of the pony tail w/ the extensions.  Then, twist both halves of the pony tail together to create the look below.  Secure it with an elastic at the ends, or you can continue to twist the hair into a bun and secure with pins.  Zac Posen kept his runway look fresh, sleek and upbeat with colored extensions in all his models’ ponytails.  Try this for a brunch get together or simple dinner outing.

For those with a more romantic and whimsical personality, the look below might be more suitable.   Seen all over the runway of Chanel were wispy face framing strands of hair and high loose knots of hair embellished with a large jeweled accessory.   Everything was seen from gold leaves to large flowers.  This is personally my favorite look.  It’s probably the easiest to re-create and will take all but 5 minutes.

Begin by blowdrying your hair with a flat-paddle brush to smooth the hair.  If necessary, use mousse to create a bit of volume before you blowdry.  After your hair is dry, finger comb and pull up into a high ponytail. Slightly angle it to the side and tuck loose hairs under for a messy slightly off-center knot.  Finish off the look by pinning large flowers to the base of the ponytail/knot or pinning large jeweled accessories near the crown.  The look is both fanciful and sweet! Although, I do think there are age limitations to this look. :P

Avant-garde anyone?  This one was just interesting so I had to post it.  Feathers for bangs! I would only approve this look for an evening cocktail event or museum gala opening.  All others, steer clear of this. You could very well end up being stared at for all the wrong reasons!
