For most of us, Covid has left a devastating effect on our livelihoods and minds. As we learn to live with the effects of trauma associated with the chaos that started in early 2020, finding our perfect balance of normalcy without compromising safety can still be a struggle. There is no perfect answer, but most of us can agree that a sane mind promotes overall health and that includes Self Care.
Everyone's hot for Henna! Who can blame them? Even I love it and its my preferred method to tint brows for my clients and myself! Why? Because its the perfect compromise between makeup and cosmetic tattooing. It doesn't wash off at the end of the day and there's no risk getting stuck with a bad tattoo. For those that are not ready to go invasive... there's nothing better than Brow Henna!
Microblading may be a little past its ‘hot new trend’ phase, but there's no halt on the inquiries! It goes to show how many are still searching for their brow saving grace. But is Microblading really ‘the miracle’ its marketed to be? As with most invasive procedures, Microblading requires continuous commitment, investment and time to reap its benefits. I explain all the ‘behind the scenes’ about Microblading so you can decide whether its right for you!
Nowadays, sultry brows and lashes are in high demand! With so many consumers eager to hop on the ‘brows and lashes on fleek’ bandwagon, the FDA has finally chimed in due to the rise of reported reactions from consumers. Our eyes are the most fragile part of our entire bodies, leaving them most susceptible to sensitivities, allergies or reactions that may potentially cause serious harm. It should be common sense that using unapproved FDA chemicals so close to our delicate eyes is a no-no! This takes the ‘beauty is pain’ concept to a whole new level.
Hair removal methods are a ‘dime a dozen’. You've probably tried many and have your preferred method on lock-down with a.) your favorite technician, or b.) yourself, a diy grooming master! Either or, we can all agree that not every method is a ‘one-size-fits-all’. But one thing is for sure... Threading is ‘the underdog’ of hair removal methods.
Many don't know that Threading is a deregulated beauty service in Texas. This means that an artist who performs Threading, may freely practice without acquiring a Texas State Cosmetology License. There has been much controversy between those who are licensed, vs. those who are not. The differences are evident primarily in the price and the limitations of an unlicensed artist. I, a Texas Licensed Esthetician who performs Threading, feels the consumers should have a right to know, so they can confidently chose their artist and establishment, in which they prefer to receive their Threading services, regardless of licensure.
