Summer Beauty Tips

1. Exfoliate your skin The ground rule of basic skincare is to exfoliate your skin. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute. If you don’t get rid of them, they’ll just set in on your skin making you look dull and dry.

2. Sunscreen is a must
Throw away last year’s unused sunscreen for a new bottle. Buy a new sunscreen that has UVA and UVB products and comes in at least an SPF 30. Reapply every 1-2 hours that you are in the sun.

3. Go for minimal make-up During summers less make-up is best. Under the intolerant sun, natural looks are best. If you intend to use…

Have you ever gone to the spa and come out feeling so much better? Check out Dermaplane!

Have you ever gone to the spa and come out feeling so much better than you were anticipating? I know I always feel better after a spa day, but this particular reservation introduced me to a procedure that has become a must with every future facial. About a month ago I went for my scheduled facial and as my amazing Esthetician Laci and I were talking she mentioned that one of the additional services offered was a Dermaplane. I had never heard of the procedure, so I asked what it consisted of and the benefits. After Laci’s explanation I…

Nutrition and Hair

What is healthy hair? How do we get it? These questions lead us to buy products that promise to mend our hair. We buy special vitamins targeted towards hair growth. We stick to a schedule of trimming split ends and try not to color it too often. These are great habits to stick in order to care for your hair, but how can your diet affect healthy hair growth?

“To a doctor,” says dermatologist Amy McMichael, MD, “healthy hair is hair that’s growing appropriately out of every follicle, not easily broken, and connected to a healthy scalp…. it’s hair that’s…

Summer is Wrapping Up


Summer is wrapping up, sending most of us excitedly digging out our sweaters, leggings, and boots. However, just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean we should stop looking for the best way to get rid of unwanted body hair! Idaho has incredible hot springs and gyms have indoor pools, which means our swim suits don’t ever get truly packed away.

My friends I have literally spent so much time debating the best razors for shaving bikini areas, the best creams to prevent discomfort, and the wide range of hair removal options…

cuppingIf you watched men’s swimming during the Olympics this past month, or followed social media during the games, you probably heard talk about purple circles on the skin of star athletes, including Michael Phelps. Those bright spots are a result of cupping, which is nothing new to those in the world of therapeutic massage and alternative medicine, but is actually an ancient way of bringing relief to muscles. The Egyptians were experiencing it’s benefits as early as 1,550 B.C.

Let the professionals color your hair!

My friends and I were sitting around after dinner last week discussing our plans for our fall hair colors. I told them about my plans for balayage and someone mentioned that there are now kits available for you to do this at home! The subject quickly changed to home-dyeing-horror stories and how complicated it can be to correctly color you hair on your own. We all came to the same conclusion…

Drugstores are filled with shelves of products that make us believe beautiful hair can come from that box. I admit that I have grabbed…

Why buy products at a salon


Hair products are an important tool in achieving the look that we want. While it can be
convenient to toss hair products into our cart at the grocery store, the benefits of buying
hair products at a salon can be just as significant as which product you choose!

Your stylist has spent time getting to know your look as they artfully color and cut your
hair. The stylist is invested in your look and knows your hair. They know if you should
choose a gel or a mousse or which shampoo is right for your…

Beautiful Ombre

Ombre MarkieLast week on this blog we talked about balayage, which is French for “sweep”, and the term we use to describe the freehanded technique of painting hair color on to create beautiful, natural highlights.
Ombre is a French term that means “shading.” When you hear about ombre hair, the balayage technique has been used to blend a dark hair color at the roots with a light hair color beginning around the midshaft of the hair. Usually there are no dark pieces left on the bottom of the hair.

We love this look for so many reasons!
It is…
