Flaunt Your Look with Sally Beauty

I had the pleasure of being one of the North Carolina bloggers to participate in the Sally Beauty "Flaunt Your Look" campaign. I spent an evening at my local Sally Beauty store talking about achieving versatile hairstyles for the everyday fashionable woman and those with children using Strength of Nature products: Beautiful Textures and African Pride Dream Kids. I learned so many women are afraid to step out the box and try trendy styles they see on social media or magazines. I assured them it's all about having the right products and confidence to rock it. The evening was filled with tons of giveaways, Q&A, and of course selfies. Thank you to everyone who attended! If you weren't able to attend join the conversation on social media using hashtag #SallyTalksTextures. Leave a comment on this blog post with your e-mail for a chance to win a Beautiful Textures and African Pride Dream Kids product package from me!

Xtreme Lashes by Elle C. Luxury

I got lashed today by Elle C. Luxury co-owner and Xtreme Lash stylist, Charlie Butler. Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions are developed to mimic your natural eyelashes, each eyelash extension is individually applied to a single eyelash, resulting in a gorgeous, natural appearance. I've seen them on so many friends and they're so natural and pretty. I wanted to try an every day look with lasting look. With proper care these can last up for a month. 

The process was pretty interesting. First, my lashes had to be cleaned. Second, primer was set for the special glue. Third, gel patches were placed under my bottom eye lids to protect from getting glue on them. Fourth, tape was placed to hold my eyelids in place to properly place the lashes as close to the lashline. Lastly, the lashes were applied. The whole process was about an hour and a half. The only downside was my rear end hurting from laying on the reclined chair for that long and being antsy. 

I loved the flutter look and how natural they are. Charlie told me I can still wear strip lashes (you know I am!) in addition to my Xtreme Lashes.

Check out my before and afters.
