Fall Beauty Forecast Class!

back+to+school Fall Beauty Forecast Class!

It’s time to go back to school!

As a beauty expert, I’ve been enlisted by Skillshare to teach a class on – you guessed it – beauty!

The class, Fall Beauty Forecast, is now listed on the Skillshare website – but it is currently in ‘Pilot’ mode. This means that, before I set a date/time/location, I’m waiting to gauge interest in the course.

So if you’re in the Philadelphia area and interested in attending, visit the page and click the eye icon. This lets me know that you want to learn – and will alert you once I’ve set the date.

Here’s the class description:

Want a fresh look for fall? Class is in session for those who, while still sporting shorts and flip flops, want to get a jump start on the upcoming season.

It might seem far away now, but Autumn is just around the corner – prime time to start stocking up on the season’s essential beauty gear. In Fall Beauty Forecast, beauty expert Daneen Baird will share the fiercest fall beauty trends and introduce you to new must-haves – from cosmetics, skin care, hair care, bath and body, fragrance and tools.

Test drive these fabulous fall products before the temperature drops. They’re so hot, these products are sure to raise the mercury a few degrees.

If your makeup bag is so last season, secure your spot at the head of this class.

Note: The Fall Beauty Forecast class will culminate with a beauty basket raffle!

Based on the response to this first class, I might make teaching a regular thing. So stay tuned for more announcements. That is all for now. Class is dismissed.

Salon Rouge: Blown Away By My Blowout

When it comes to beauty, few things make me happier than a professional blowout. I always feel my prettiest after someone tugs on my tresses with a round brush and blasts them with hot air. Why? Well, because I can get away with wearing my glasses, no makeup, jeans and a t-shirt – and still look totally fabulous. That’s the beauty of a blowout.

 Salon Rouge: Blown Away By My Blowout
So when Salon Rouge invited me to get my hair did over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, you know I immediately RSVP’d with a resounding “YES!!!!”

While Salon Rouge isn’t exactly in my neighborhood (it’s located in Cherry Hill, NJ), I had such a wonderful experience that I would gladly cross state lines and pay the $3 bridge toll again for such sleek and chic hair.

First, hairstylist Heather shampooed me using Bumble and bumble Tonic Shampoo, which has Tea Tree Oil and Peppermint extracts to soothe my itchy/dry scalp, balance oil, stimulate circulation. I loved the tingle! Then she shampooed again with Bumble and bumble Alojoba Shampoo – a lightweight, moisture-rich smoothie that combines Aloe Vera Gel, Jojoba Seed Oil, Cucumber and Chamomile for soft, shiny hair. She followed up the shampoo with the Alojoba Conditioner, which also smoothes and softens.
 Salon Rouge: Blown Away By My Blowout

Once the conditioner was rinsed out, Heather sprayed Bumble and bumble Tonic Lotion at the roots and all over to detangle and prepare my hair for styling; this leave-in conditioner is a must-have for those with dry, coarse, porous or colored hair. While my hair was still damp, Heather squeezed a couple drops of Bumble and bumble Defrizz into her hands and distributed throughout my hands. She explained that Defrizz is the perfect prep product before a blowout because it protects against frizz, acts as a barrier to humidity and leaves hair silky and flyaway-free – but she warns not to get overzealous because a little goes a long way.

spoiled+pretty+blowout+at+salon+rouge Salon Rouge: Blown Away By My Blowout

Then Heather gave me a blowout that blew me away. It took almost no time at all, and she has a very gentle technique. My bangs were almost past my nose, so I asked her to shorten and thicken them up – and she trimmed them to perfection. Seriously, I can’t remember the last time I was so happy with my bangs. Finally, she sprayed my hair with Bb.Shine before flat ironing to protect and add a polished finish.

If you’re in the Greater Philadelphia/South Jersey area, I highly recommend you pay Salon Rouge a visit…and tell Heather that Spoiled Pretty says “hi.”
