The North American Trends Vision Awards – Recap

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lights, camera, hair!  On Sunday, July 29th I had the honor of attending the North American Trends Vision Awards at LA Live.  Hosted by Wella Professionals, this was an event for North American top stylists to compete for awards in colors and cuts in three categories: color, student, and young talent. I have never been to a hair awards show nor LA Live, so this was an exciting event to attend and see how people in the hair industry get down!

As soon as I waked foot onto the event deck of LA Live, I was impressed with how stylish everyone was!  There were so many colorful looks I felt right at home with my print dress and The Man in the Hot Pink Suit on my arm.  There were live interactive installations of hair stylists working on model’s hair, a photo booth, food catered by Wolfgang Puck and stage set for amazing styles to walk the runway. Teams from Vidal Sassoon, P&G, Sebastian, Clairol, Wella and Nioxin were on the scene creating their color dream.

With competitors from the US, Puerto Rico and Canada, it was great to see such amazing color, cuts and futuristic costumes worn by the hair models.  They all showcased their incredible talents and the gold  winners are now on their way to represent the USA at the INTERNATIONAL TREND VISION AWARDS. This year’s celebration will be hosted Madrid, Spain on October 28th, 2012.  Overall, the whole experience was quite a show and really got me excited to attend future hair events as this one has really set the bar!

If you weren’t in attendance, the entire show is available via webcast for you to see: http://www.salonprofessionalinteractive.com/#

Comfortable for a Cause – Bella Costa Flats!

Bella Costa Reed Multi Stripe

There are so many types of flats for one to buy and I always prefer style and comfort.  When one of my style sources told me about Bella Costa flats by Reef, I took one look at the line and was ready to try a pair!

Quilted padding with arch support

I got the reef multi-stripe since they were the most colorful with the stripes of every color and they reflect my vibrant sense of style.  I wore them out recently and the one thing that stands out about the flats is the quilted foam footbed with anatomical arch support! I was able to wear these all day and my feet were at ease and made for walking. The bottom of the shoe is fancied after espadrille construction with a durable rubber outsole with Jute inlay.  I got a lot of compliments as well as I was out and about and mentioned the place to snag them.

The Bella Costas are part of a great cause, the ‘We Heart Guatemala’ project. Launched on February 1st, the Bella Costas support the ancient tradition of the Mayan highlands of Guatemala. This shoe launch is also in conjunction with Nest, the nonprofit organization dedicated to identifying and collaborating with responsible artisan business.  Nest works with a network of existing artisanal workshops, globally, to alleviate poverty, empower women and promote peace.

Bella Costas will be available at www.reef.com for $54.

Chic Tweak – Scarf Wonderland!

Bindya NY Fairy scarf worn in the modern loop style

I love wearing scarves! With winter in full force (breezy Spring for LA), scarves are the go to accessory for fashion forward women regardless of their climate. They offer functionality, versatility and a pop to any outfit. When I was alerted of Chic Tweak and given a beautiful, colorful scarf to rock around town I was excited to share this newfound website with you!

Some only wear it one way, but Chic Tweak can help you re-think the way you wear your go-to accessory! Being indoors doesn’t always assure warmth. Wear your scarf as a wrap when you’re seated by the door at the hottest new restaurant, or when the heating system at your office isn’t quite doing the trick on those extra chilly winter days.

The modern-loop is a fresh take on a classic look. Fashionable no matter how it’s worn, the loop allows you to don your scarf loose and flowing for a layering effect, or tighter for a polished look that provides optimal warmth when the mercury dips.

Another way to wear it is Celeb style. For the glam look you can wear it this way and turn heads. Be ready to strike a pose! Be sure to check out this website and see the some of the most hottest scarves and the many ways you can stand out just by a tweak of your look!

About Chic Tweak: Chic Tweak is a recently launched one-stop-shop for the latest trends in scarves and accessories. Created to be an aggregate of the very best scarves available in the marketplace, Chic Tweak offers a range of prices and variety for today’s fashion forward women.
