I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Give Away Some Shades!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Philadelphia, Philadelphia Phocus, Sunglasses | 4 Comments

ditasunglasses The Futures So Bright, I Gotta Give Away Some Shades!
A few weeks ago, I decided to write an article about sunglasses. I owed it to you to write more than a puff piece about which styles are in vogue, so I enlisted the help of an expert.

margo and camille The Futures So Bright, I Gotta Give Away Some Shades!
After work one day, I took a taxi to the Old City section of Philadelphia and instructed the driver to stop in front of Margot & Camille Optique. Upon entering the cozy boutique, I was warmly greeted by Valerie Vittu, Optician and Eyewear Image Consultant, formerly of Alain Mikli on Madison Avenue in New York City. Her boutique has an upscale feel, with artistic flourishes – like its saffron-hued walls and artfully displayed merchandise.

What I expected to be a 20-25 minute conversation turned out to be an hour and a half tutorial. In a frenetic French accent, Valerie schooled me on how to choose the right pair of sunglasses. It isn’t an exact science, she explained. A certain face shape plus a particular frame shape does not necessarily equal your perfect pair of shades. If I learned anything from this former sculptor turned optician, it’s that choosing a flattering pair of sunglasses is an art.

Obviously, the process involves a good deal of trial and error. It can be as confusing and frustrating as finding a pair of jeans or the elusive “perfect” swimsuit. But with a few tips, you can narrow the scope of your search and make the process much easier – and fun!

When shopping for sunglasses, consider the following factors:

Shape
Decide which styles work best with your face shape. Round Faces: If you have a round face shape, avoid sunglasses with rounded frames…this will only emphasize the roundness of your face. Angular shapes create a contrast that is visually slimming. Square Faces: If your face is square, look for rounded styles that can help to soften. Heart-Shaped: Find frames that balance a wide forehead and compliment your gorgeous cheeks and pointy chin. Oval Faces: You lucky lasses have the most options when choosing sunglasses. Almost any style will be flattering, but remember that face shape isn’t the only aspect to consider…

Size
When it comes to sunglasses, one size does not fit all. Oversized shades may be very on-trend right now – but what’s seriously stylish is wearing a pair that works with the proportions of your face and body. Sunglasses that are too big will swallow you up, and make it look as though they’re wearing you…too small, and people will think you beat up some poor little girl and stole her shades. You wouldn’t squeeze your size 10 derriere into size 2 daisy dukes. The same idea applies to your eyewear. But on the flip side, sunglasses that offer more coverage do a better job of protecting the delicate skin around your eye area.

Fit
Sunglasses should fit comfortably on the face. If they pinch the temples or pull on the ears, put ‘em back on the shelf. An ill-fitting pair, no matter how cute, is just going to give you a headache. If you have a low nose bridge or none at all, you should probably gravitate toward glasses with nose pads. How can you tell if you fall into this category? If there is a gap where the glasses sit on your nose, you’re a candidate for nose pads. I fall into this category.

Color
Stay in the same color family as your complexion and hair, and the effect will be neutral. You can also play with color to accentuate certain features or downplay imperfections. To highlight lips, for example, choose a frame or lens with rose tones. If you have olive skin or visible veins, stay away from green tints. If you have a ruddy complexion, counteract the red with blue tints.

Lens
If you’re going to get prescription sunglasses, don’t concern yourself with the lenses – because they will be removed. Otherwise, you might want to ask the optician or salesperson about different lens features. I have a personal prefence for polarized lenses, which help to reduce the glare created when light bounces off of some objects, such as water, highways and other similar surfaces. Here’s a cool trick that Valerie taught me: to see if lenses are polarized, hold sunglasses in front of a computer screen. Then tilt them sideways, on a 45 degree angle. The lenses will appear opaque black. Pretty cool stuff, right?

UV Protection
Don’t be misled into thinking that dark lenses offer higher UV protection. The UV coating on lenses is clear, so tint has nothing to do with UV. What is especially dangerous, Valerie warned, is to buy darkly tinted sunglasses that offer no UV protection – because the pupils are wide open and especially susceptible to damage. The FDA recommends you purchase sunglasses that block 99-100% of UVA and UVB radiation. The sticker should read either UV 400 or 100% UV protection.

Price
You might be tempted to go cheap, but a quality pair of shades is actually a sound investment. When you buy inexpensive sunglasses, you treat them like inexpensive sunglasses. You haphazardly toss them into your purse without a case, accidentally sit on them and warp the frames, or flat-out lose them. When you invest in a good pair of glasses, you handle them with care and keep tabs on their whereabouts. Valerie asked me, “How many Bic pens do you own and where are they?” She added, “You don’t know and you probably don’t care. But if you have a Montblanc pen, you know where it’s at at all times.” Valerie speaks the truth, y’all.

Personality
Finally, it’s important to take your personality into account. If you are athletic, you might want to look for sportier styles. Glamour girls might want to consult magazines before buying. As an optician, Valerie is committed to helping a customer select frames that reflect her identity and the way she wants to be perceived. And it’s always a good idea to take a family member or girlfriend with you – someone who will tell you the truth. “Make sure she’s honest, and not jealous,” Valerie joked.

My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi Salon

Posted on by daneen in Hair, Hair Color, Hair Styling, Haircut, Philadelphia, Philadelphia Phocus, Salon | 2 Comments

giovanni+%26+pileggi1 My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi Salon
A month ago, I was invited to the grand re-opening of Giovanni & Pileggi, now located in an 1840’s Federal Period Townhouse at 256 South 16th Street in Center City Philadelphia. A few weeks later, I was invited back to the salon – this time, to have my hair cut and colored by one of their talented stylists.

Last Tuesday, I arrived at the salon and was greeted by Franc, whom I had met back in April at the opening. His friendly demeanor put me at ease, at least a little bit. But having been in a 13-year monogamous relationship with my hairdresser Erik, I was having heart palpitations about putting my hair in someone else’s hands.

daneen+and+franc My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi SalonWhen Franc sat me down in his chair and asked me what I had in mind for my new do, I surprised myself when I responded, “Do whatever you think is best. I trust you.” I removed the elastic from ponytail and Franc sized up my mane. “Highlights,” he said assertively. “Highlights will give your hair dimension.”

After mixing up my color, he quickly applied the mixture and foil to sections of my hair with amazing dexterity. While working his magic, I remembered I was there in a journalistic capacity and began firing off questions.

Franc told me that as a student at The Philadelphia High School for Creative And Performing Arts, he befriended some girls in the dance department and started doing their hair. Not long after, he realized that hair was his calling and enrolled in beauty school. After graduating from beauty school, he moved to New York City and worked at Bumble & Bumble. It was during his years in NYC that he noticed how segregated the industry was – white customers patronized white salons and black clients patronized black salons. So Franc decided to teach himself how to work with ethnic/textured hair, so that he could cater to all patrons.

In New York, he honed his craft working at the Bumble & Bumble salon – as well as doing fashion shows and photo shoots. But a few years ago, he got a little homesick and decided to move back to Philly to work exclusively in a salon setting. “I much prefer working in a salon because I enjoy helping regular people transform into better versions of themselves,” he said. “It’s not that hard to make a model look good. Plus salon work allows me to be creative. When you’re doing editorial or runway work, you’re following someone else’s template.”

After rinsing the dye out of my hair, a gloss was applied and allowed to marinate – to add all-over shine to my dull locks. But before long, I was back in Franc’s chair. He quickly blow dried my hair and whipped out his shears. Again, I shocked myself by telling him to do what he thought was best. He decided to keep the length, but add some layers that would give my hair shape and movement. Then he styled it without any input from me. So how’d he do?

highlights+044 My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi Salon

highlights+043 My Date With Franc at the Giovanni & Pileggi Salon

Amazing, right?!?!?!?!?! I love my hair and I love Franc for transforming me into a better version of myself.

If you live anywhere near Philadelphia, even if it’s kind of a hike, you must get to Giovanni & Pileggi and pay Franc a visit.
