Austin Beauty Week 2013

Austin Beauty Week is a bi-annual, weeklong celebration dedicated to beauty & wellness in Austin, which offers consumers an opportunity to try and enjoy full-service treatments or experiences at a reduced price. The Spring 2013 Launch Party was a hit! Kicking things off with a Salon Showcase, held March 28th in downtown Austin on the rooftop of Speakeasy; hundreds of Fashion and Beauty followers gathered to get a taste of Fashionable Austin!

I am excited to share that this was my first taste of Austin Beauty Week! I partnered with Wild Orchid Hair Salon-who participated in the Salon Showcase; as Wardrobe Stylist. My goal was to create “glamorous looks” that would compliment the one of a kind hair designs created by the Wild Orchid team! I must say the experience was one that I will never forget. Working with such a talented team of Hair Stylist like: Danielle Benson, Lorie Newman, Rebecca Engel, Jessica Chapman and Mia Marquis was such an honor and not to mention tons of fun!!!! In addition to the ladies of Wild Orchid Hair Salon, I was surrounded by gorgeous models like: Sarah Creel, Lindsey Wallace, Lucrecia Rodriguez, Zoe Pew, Megan McAnnelly and Amber Kuhaneck who killed the runway with their fierce looks! Featuring one of kind designs of Lilly Lorraine Inc. as well as Golden Bones and Luxe Apothetique and unique handcrafted jewelry from the Sugar Factory (Gay Isber) the models were crowd favorites if I must say so myself!

In case you missed it, take a look at a few pics from the night:

Again, I want to give a special “Thanks” to Wild Orchid Hair Salon for giving me the opportunity to work with them. Located at 800 W. 3rd Street #1306 in Downtown Austin; the girls feature services such as: Cuts, Style, Color and Extensions and are great at what they do!  Visit to schedule an appointment…you won’t be disappointed!

And…if you are looking for unique one of a kind jewelry, visit Gay Isber at the Sugar Factory-located at 1800 W. Koenig Lane.  Her pieces are absolutely amazing!

Until next time…
