April Showers

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Spring is my favorite time of year for hair and fashion. Although there are a lot of ups and downs with the temperature and the amount of sunshine we see, the weather is perfect for combining heavy and light fabrics. At least all the weather changes give us time to wear really fun, layered outfits. […]

Blues Traveler

Friday, February 27th, 2015

One of my favorite things about fashion is getting to watch a trend develop based on someone’s inspiration from an earlier time. One of my favorite styles right now is denim on denim. A classic pairing that evolves a little each time it rebounds. Here are a few details that make or break this look: […]

  January is a time to be inspired.  Think clean and simple.  Nature in its beautiful glory of blues, grays and whites.  So beautiful. Brenda Brinkman Creative Director  Collage Salon

2014 In Beauty

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

Looking back at this past year opens my mind to all the new possibilities of 2015.  Fashion comes and goes.  Some years are better than others, but I loved this last year’s fashion in clothing, makeup and hair. The straightening treatments opened up all kinds up looks for us.  And that was fun for a […]

Tough Touch

Friday, November 7th, 2014

The end of summer and beginning of fall were all about loose and flowy clothes paired with natural looking hair. As cooler weather is coming and it’s getting time to bundle up, warmer materials, like leather, are being added to feminine texture and lace. From business to casual, I’m seeing lots of menswear inspired outfits […]

Romantic Grandeur

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Have you seen Aveda’s new Fall/Winter make up collection yet? The line is hauntingly elegant. Bold colors with soft, blended edges give the overwhelming sense of strength combined with femininity. The collection has two make up looks: red lotus and winter lilac.    Beautiful, aren’t they? Well, this weekend I had the opportunity of making […]

Fall Fashion Flavor

The year is moving forward unbelievably fast. But I am thoroughly excited that cooler weather finally seems to be on its way. Now if we could just get it to stay for a while! We’ve reached the time of year where being outside is simply comfortable, which is the perfect time to focus on fashion. […]

Fall Hair & Fashion

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

I recently read an article about all the perfect models and the perfect celebrities that so many people try their hardest to look like. I am sure you all know that in their photos, every little imperfection has been smoothed out of the picture. What is left, is simply perfection. I don’t know about you, […]

Fake Bake, Baby

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

I attended a wedding last week. The night before the event I had a terrible dream in which I wore a dress that hit a few inches above my knees, exposing my extremely pale thighs but still tan knees and calves. Thankfully, I woke up to legs all one color and slightly bronzed from the […]

Peaches & Cream

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

As I sit outside on this unusually cool August morning, I’m still in disbelief that fall is right around the corner. I’m trying so hard not to rush the end of summer, but as soon as I feel the first morning with a cool breeze I get excited for the change in season. No matter […]
