EYELASH EXTENSIONS $100 OFF!

Our new eyelash extension services is designed to offer you full and natural eyelashes with no fuss maintenance.  Beauty can give length and thickness to your lashes through this simple application of eyelash extension.  These extensions will blend into surrounding lashes seamlessly right down to the synthetic root and offer a chance to enhance the overall depth and curl of your lashes without appearing false or doctored.  Our extensions are semi-permanent and will last up to 4-6 weeks and since they are attached individually to your existing lashes, they diminish naturally over time.

• You want to add depth and luster to your existing lashes

• You feel your lashes are too short or widely spaced

• Medical treatments have left your lashes thinned and spare

• You want to save time on make-application in your busy schedule (lash extension requires little to no mascara!)

• You have regular allergic reactions to mascara and are looking for a safe alternative for a longer lashes look

Our eyelash extension specialist, Rebecca Ross, is available at our Eastside location for booking.  Call our front desk team to schedule your appointment today. Beauty Eastside (414)276-5054

Molly's trip to NEW YORK FASHION WEEK with BEAUTY

This September, as part of Beauty’s client referral promotion, one lucky customer was awarded an all expense paid weekend trip, with a guest, to New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  Beauty’s own top stylist, Bjorn Nasett, was on hand in New York to show our winner, Molly Keenan, and her guest, Mary Sheehan, all that Fashion Week in New York had to offer. 



The trip was described by Molly as quite simply “the best I’ve ever taken”.  Her thoughts on the fashion and glamour she observed are at once candid and sincere.  She takes a moment this video interview to share her personal thoughts and experiences with us.  


Molly, a mother of three, was treated to a weekend of dining, shopping, and fashion sight seeing.  A jaunt to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, proved excellent for vintage fashion hunting (a favorite of Molly’s).  The shopping took them to Manhattan and lunch at The Bedford, a favorite of New York locals.  An exciting night at Beauty Bar had them sipping cosmos while enjoying manicures, all while enjoying the music and people watching that Beauty Bar is known for.  Saturday saw Molly, along with Mary and Bjorn, off to Lincoln Center to have a seat at some of the best runway shows of the year.  Witnessing all the action at Lincoln Center first hand, Molly remarks that “She’d never seen anything like it”.  The day ended near Madison Square Park, where the three enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Blue Smoke, a bustling jazz club known for it’s ribs and ambience.  Sunday falling on September 11th, the ladies chose to visit Saint Patrick’s Cathedral and pay their respects during the scheduled memorial service.

Beauty can’t wait to offer more opportunities to send our clients to New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in the future.  So stay tuned for upcoming news!

Off Kilter Updo's = Crazy Summer Style!



I really like these funky up-do's from the Nico Lena show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  This would be a great style for all summer long, and as seen here would take you into fall as well.  In fashion asymmetry is always a little more interesting and can help soften the effect of a more severely cut dress or suit.  They soften the hard lines.  I thought the "I Dream of Jeannie" ponytail was seriously amusing, and the ebony cinnabun was also strangely cool.  Simply pull hair that has been prepared with Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, into a high side ponytail.  Take a dab of Bb Grooming Creme and pull through ponytail whiled twisting into your version of a messy bun.  Bobby pin securely by NOT opening pins and inserting straight in and then pointing the tip towards the center of the bun and pushing up gently.  If it doesn't feel secure, it isn't!  So try again until you get the right "grip."  The key here is texture and sleekness with some sideways sass.  No need to wear the "Stepford Wife" look on your face though.  When you schedule your next haircut or color service at Beauty Hair Salon, don't forget to ask your stylist for tips on how to do your own simple, summery, up-do.










CLASSIC BEAUTY IS SEASONLESS

  I ran across this picture recently and couldn't help thinking that this was a fabulous look for this or any season. Great fashion and grooming are always in. A LBD and simple jewelry is all this gorgeous FORD model Christina B. needs.  I used Secsi (available at Beauty in 6 shades) mineral makeup for her foundation, lined her inner eyelid with a white pencil for that doe-eyed look, and swept just a whisper of sheer pink blush on her flawless face.  Defined but not overdone eyelashes complement the stronger brow, and the peony colored lipstick gives just the right pop of color to this monochromatic palette.   I side parted her fine hair and brushed it up into a high ponytail at the crown of her head.  I then back combed the ponytail and gave it a mist of Does It All hairspray by Bumble and Bumble.  I swirled the rough ponytail around until it had a bun like look.  Next, I simply pinned all the way around the perimeter of the bun and gave it another shot of spray.  Voila!  Here is our version of a modern day Audrey Hepburn from "Breakfast at Tiffany's".  This is a classic look and will never go out of style.  This was photographed by my dear friend John Grant, at his studio in the 3rd Ward.  In addition,  Mr. Grant did the fashion styling.

Before and After at Beauty......




Whenever I see a make over on a reality TV show, I'm always struck by how extreme they are.  The producers I'm sure need them to be as dramatic as possible so that the viewers stay tuned.  In the real world of salons and beauty however, bringing out the best in the client in smaller ways is usually what is in order.  Not to say we don't do major remodeling on some clients at their behest, but the art of subtlety is something that Beauty hairdressers have always strived for with their valued customers.  Finding out what works best for their texture, growth pattern, and daily routine, is what actually brings about striking change.  For example, take a look at these before and afters that were done during a Bumble and Bumble haircutting class at Beauty recently.  The models both look different, but in a carefully orchestrated way.  Sam, our trainer from Chicago, showed staff members that creating movement, and flattering the clients face and bone structure are what a great haircut is about, wouldn't you agree? Shown here are the long layer razor cut, and the razor bob, perfected by the Bumble and Bumble technique.  The fabulous photo's are by Mr. Rory Kurtz.

Bridal Beauty for 2011 featured in Veil Magazine

Trends come and go, but Beauty on your wedding day is eternal!!  Veil magazine recently gave us the opportunity to style for their fabulous bridal magazine.  In these two photos, hair and make up professionals from Beauty show two different hair looks that are totally unique.  We've used hair accessories by local Milwaukee designer Jaxie, and the images were done by KB Image.


The model here has that fresh dewy quality that every bride would love to have on her wedding day.  With the headband look I think it's important to stay in the ethereal range of peaches, pinks, and neutral on the eyes.  This is a delicate way to play out your big day.  The slight center part and lightly curled hair also add to that almost renaissance feeling.


In the second picture, the same model has been styled a little more fashion forward.  The eye make up is a bit deeper and gray was used to elongate and give here a more dramatic eye.  The blush is deepened as well.  The hair here is side swept and a feather hair clip was used in place of something more traditional.  Feathers are very popular this year, and rightly so.  They add a fluttery, yet classy quality when paired with the right hairstyle.


Yet more ideas for you to think about when considering your hair and make up needs for your big day.  The talented hairstylists and makeup artists at Beauty can help you realize your glamour potential, while still being true to yourself.  Schedule a practice make up or style with one of our professionals and I guarantee you'll be the shining star at your soiree!
