The Roaring Twenties Inspires Breast Cancer Research


Promotional Poster Promotional Poster

When I was in sixth grade, I was in a school play about the 1920’s. I recall learning about this decade in the eyes of a flapper, as that was my part in the play. My mom made a beautiful dress for me, full of fringe, as I learned some “new-old” dance moves for the play. Even at the age of 11 as I played the part of a flapper, I felt the empowerment, the inspiration to dance and have fun, to live and be free.

The 1920’s is regarded as a break from tradition and a flirtatious and romantic decade of modern living. People began to feel liberated (especially women) and new trends in fashion and beauty were inspired on the movie screens or jazz clubs. Consumer demand inspired modern technology and inventions.

Fast-forward to the 1990’s when breast cancer research and awareness began to make an…

Welcome. It’s A Great Day at Aveda.


Walk into any Aveda Experience Center (aka retail store) and you’ll be kindly greeted by an Aveda Advisor proudly saying “welcome to Aveda” accompanied by a cup of warm Aveda Comforting Tea. The aroma of 25 pure plant and flower essences (#smellsLikeAveda) will wrap around your mind, body and soul like a warm blanket. Like an enchanting spell, it’s as if you’ve been lightly lifted off your feet as you float around admiring the latest in Ayurvedic-inspired beauty products.

I didn’t know it then, (nearly 20 years ago as pre-teen just beginning my exploration of the world of beauty) but Aveda was about to change my life. With a bottle of Shampure Shampoo in hand, I knew there was something…

It’s a Hard Lesson for Us Hairstylists

My Life As A Hairstylist


You’ve heard it before and it’s a wonderful ego stroke; your clients praising your genius and telling you they will follow you to the ends of the Earth.

“I can’t live without you, I will follow you anywhere.”
“Nobody has ever done my hair as well as you.”
“I need you to come live with me and do this every morning.”

And then suddenly you realize it’s been months since her last visit and she isn’t booked for anything upcoming. You stalk her Facebook page and see she doesn’t have roots. Maybe she even unfriended you.

You did her wedding hair, you were with her through the tough times, supported her through the break-ups, did her baby’s first haircut. You were a part of all her major milestones. She was more than just a client. What happened?

There are a lot of reasons clients move on. And it is usually…
