Easy breezy summer makeup!

We are loving the Sorme BB “Tint and Treat” Cream as our go-to summer makeup essential!  It offers sheer coverage and great sunscreen protection (SPF 30) while going on smooth, never sticky and never creasing.   Tint and Treat baths the skin in pure argan oil, aloe, chamomile (plus an antioxidant formulation of ingredients that include rosemary, passion fruit and papaya) but is light enough for all skin types.  In fact, we’ve experienced fewer breakouts while using it.

Get radiant skin from the Beverly Hills skincare line, Sorme!  Available in 4 shades:

Kenra Q&A tomorrow, on our showroom floor.

Stop by our store on Thursday, July 24, from 4:00 – 6:00 to talk to Jackie Stroud , our Kenra representative, to learn all about Kenra.  She is here to answer any questions you may have about Kenra.  ANY questions :)

Kenra is not just a hairspray company anymore!  They have a new color line and smoothing system that are taking the hair industry by storm!  Many stylists have switched to the Kenra color line for its predictability, longevity and ease of use.  And their smoothing system just ROCKS!  It straightens hair without odor, without dangerous chemicals, allows washing the next day and works amazingly well.  And it is affordable!  The Kenra Smooth Try Me Kits are even on sale for July/August for 45% OFF!  Come by to talk to Jackie and see what Kenra can do for you!
