Where in the world does the time go? I have to pinch myself to believe we are winding down 2018 – and at a super rapid rate! I feel like just yesterday I was saying to myself “June will be here before we know it.” Now, June is long gone and 2019 is in my sights. But, as fast as it goes, I have loved…
Ihave always found autumn to be a breath of fresh air. Here in the northeast, we have cooler days and breezy nights, a lower setting sun in the sky, falling leaves, and crisp air. It’s a time of rejuvenation and an opportunity to set your sights on the upcoming months. First, fall is the ideal time for making connections and exploring new business ideas. This…
After 30 years in the skin care business, I can honestly say I think I’ve seen everything! When you tack on 16 years as a school owner – my goodness – I could write a book!

As we roll through the summer months, our thoughts are on sunshine, warm weather, picnics, barbecues, and beaches. Summer is the ideal time of year to enjoy friends and family, reconnect with the great outdoors, and, honestly, to pause long enough to smell the roses. But, as much of a blessing as summer is, it is also a time of the year when we should…
I never knew exactly what I wanted do when I grew up. During my senior year of high school, my best friend and I decided that we were going to become hairdressers and open our own salon, so we convinced our parents to put us in beauty school. Three nights during the week and every Saturday for 10 months, we drove to downtown Albany, New…
Makeup enthusiasm is at an all-time high. I can barely keep up with the viral video tutorials by professionals, let alone those being made by younger individuals – sometimes under the age of 10! I must admit, my makeup routine is very minimal, so I take great interest in these videos. From contour to shading, and dramatic evening looks to light daytime looks, these videos…
Often overlooked when treating clients with acne is the emotional side of dealing with the condition. For youth, teasing and bullying often occurs. In some cases, this leads to depression, withdrawal, and even suicide. I have found that providing opportunities for clients to open up about the emotional element of acne creates an environment where they feel safe. Remember, it is not easy to gather…
Summer is drawing near, so clients should be drawing out the sunscreen. Proper client education on sun protection is essential. Remind clients that any activity in the sun requires adequate sun protection – from long trips to a quick lunch on the patio. Two common sunscreen mistakes are in frequency of application and using an adequate amount. Discuss with clients the importance of following the…

The biggest discovery I made – Miami loves waxing! As we gear up for warmer weather everywhere, let’s explore some waxing basics and best practices. Waxing is the oldest form of…
This is a topic that is personal to me as I started noticing small dimples a few years ago. I keep myself in good shape but, as the years have passed, I feel as though my cellulite has gotten worse. I, just like many, began trying creams, oils, body wraps, drinks, laser treatments, and other types of services on the market. Though there is no…
