Over the past weekend (Sun 9/20-Mon 9/21), I helped Salon Sessions be a part of the Pasadena Beauty School Forum at the Pasadena Convention Center. It was a smaller hair/makeup show, with plenty of educational classes, booths, and stage work. Mostly targeted for beauty school students.

Soooo we finally did it... For a while I have been experimenting with one of my ever evolving- chameleon like client. Mostly with color, and subtly on the cut. Only because she has always had long hair, and for most girls it is a major attachment. And a trim means pretty much "can you just air trim it?" She has mentioned before just to cut it all off but I was super hesitant, I do not want to be the blame that occurs after someone decides to spontaneously go short. It is an emotional rollercoaster.

In the mid Fifties, inspired by the magnificence of Versailles, Christian Dior asked the Swarovski House to create a crystal that evoked the reflections of the sunlight going through the famous Galerie des Glaces in Versailles. This led to the creation of the Aurore Boréale crystal with its unique multi-colored reflections.
For its 2009 Christmas Look, Christian Dior Parfums has collaborated for the very first time with the Swarovski House to create an exceptional Star Product using the legendary Aurore Boréale crystal : “Cristal Boréal”. The oval pendant, inspired by the shape of the neo-Louis XVI chairs that Christian Dior loved, is adorned with 52 Swarovski crystals of which 4 are Aurore Boréale.
This pendant contains a crystal-effect gloss declined in one easy-to-wear shade: Pink Crystal. A true makeup jewel for precious iridescent lips. Availability: Specialty Stores
