How do you choose the best makeup look for your big day? Here are some pointers…

If you want a pure and fresh look, ask your makeup artist for ‘night time natural’. This will give you a soft look that isn’t washed out in pictures. Your audience will love it.

If you want something more dramatic, ask for ‘ballroom’ makeup. This includes a sexy, smokey eye, lots of blush and contouring and a nude or natural lip. This is a great look for evening weddings and if you are comfortable wearing makeup.

If you are a fashionista type, meaning you love inventing your look and keeping up with the latest trends, let your makeup artist explore some artistic looks with you. This is commonly seen at Red Carpet events and is fun and unique.

Whatever your style, remember to trust your makeup artist! As long as he or she comes well-recommended, has a great portfolio and understands your needs, you will be in excellent hands. Your pictures will turn out amazing, too.

New Female Hair Trend: Shaved Heads

New York- Hairdressers worldwide are bracing for a huge change in the beauty industry this season. HOLOGRAM HAIRSTYLES are making their way into the mainstream with women in major cities shaving their heads to be able to wear them.

“We are just ecstatic”, the lead hair designer at Habs, Inc. reported. “This will bring so much freedom, so much change!”

The hologram hairstyles will be adjustable, with many color and haircut selections available to each client. Hairdressers will not be completely out of their jobs over this as the design must be chosen and formulated by a licensed stylist.

The hologram works via a Bluetooth connection to a mobile smartphone. One drawback is keeping the phone charged.

“We have solar and lunar-powered units in the works. Soon the devices will not need to be charged manually.”

Reports are confirmed that at least 18 percent of women in metropolitan areas have had their heads shaved this month alone, because of the trend.

1. Get a great haircut. Having a new ‘do’ makes a huge difference in your appearance. Ask your hairdresser for something that flatters your face. For inspiration, look for pictures of haircuts on people that look like you.

Make a list of 20 fun questions you could ask someone while getting to know them such as, “What’s the funnest thing you did this year?” and “What do you like most about such and such and why?” etc. These types of questions bring out the best in others and generate friendship and appreciation. Plus, you might learn something interesting.

8. Single? Get out and meet people! Go to mixers, events, meetings, parties, and anything else you can think of. Have fun.

Happy Clients:

‘We found Rebecca through a ( ) coupon for a make-up lesson, and how lucky we were! In the middle of the lesson, my daughter, Erin, and I were convinced that Rebecca was the one to hire for wedding make-up. She is incredibly warm, but very professional, and what an incredible artist with color! Erin had two sessions prior to the wedding to get the colors just right…The wedding was in the Bay Area. Rebecca drove through a storm to get to us. At 6:30 AM on the Big Day, she was in the hotel and set up, ready to do six bridesmaids, two mothers and the bride. Her timing was impeccable, and she just radiated love and support as she worked her magic. My daughter was SO beautiful, as were the bridesmaids. I was very happy with my make-up (lighter for the MOB), as was the Mother of the Groom (we looked like us, only better!). Rebecca also came to the pre-wedding photo shoot to make sure everything stayed just right for the photos. I felt that her prices were very reasonable, and she only charged for the make-up, not the incredible love and support!

I could not recommend Rebecca more highly. ‘ ~Jennifer Lee (Reno, Nevada)

Forehead Fringe- The Perfect Bang

Haircut Color, Makeup and Style by Rebecca Schembri, Breeze Salon Reno.

Let’s talk about front fringe! It can transform your look by emphasizing your eyes and by softening your forehead.  Also, forehead fringe continues to make the yearly trend.  Here’s how to style it and how to relax your ‘cowlicks’, giving you the perfect bang.

The crisscross method:  On wet (not damp) hair and using a soft cushion brush, set your blow dryer to high heat.  Take thick sections and brush your hair diagonally across your forehead alternating with each side. Once almost dry, brush the sections sideways up and over your forehead to create lift.  Finish with a few more crisscross strokes.  Flat-iron as needed.  For straight-fringed girls, that is all it takes. No hairspray required!

For long, side bangs:  After blow-drying with your crisscross method, tilt your head all the way to one side until your forehead fringe is above your brow line and dangling in the air.  From 18 inches away, lightly mist your bangs with hairspray.  (Catwalk’s Session Series Work It Hairspray is our favorite.)  Stay tilted and gently shake your head so that your fringe gains movement.

For extra hold, repeat this process.  Then count to five Mississippi and come on up!  If your fringe is too helmet-like, make a claw with your hand and gently rough the area by scratching your head one inch from the hairline without disturbing the hairsprayed line at the brow.  VOILA!  Your bangs should last at least four hours or until you comb them out.

If your forehead fringe has grown too long, please see your hairstylist unless you have a super soft, wispy bang.  If that is the case, you can trim the fringe yourself in-between salon visits.  Use haircutting shears and lightly point-notch the ends by cutting vertically.

Enjoy your perfect bang and be sure to comment below about your hair!

Choosing the Right Shampoo

Winter is here and can contribute to dry or frizzy hair, depending on where you live. Are you using the right shampoo for YOU?

bedhead
Globally #1 Bed Head Labels Products With Numbers For Hair Type and Condition

For women and men, the kind of shampoo and conditioner you use depends on your hair condition and type.

 Fine hair likes VOLUMIZING shampoo and LIGHTWEIGHT conditioner. In humid climates, you can use conditioner sparingly unless you color your hair. If you do color your hair, ask your hairstylist for a product recommendation.

If you have fine hair and live in a dry climate, use a MOISTURIZING conditioner at least once a week to nourish your scalp. Do this on days when you don’t need to style your hair since heavy conditioners can leave your hair flat.

Medium/regular hair does best with a shampoo and conditioner that reflects its environment. For example, in dry climates, use a MOISTURIZING shampoo and conditioner. In humid regions, choose something sudsier like a CLARIFYING shampoo and a REGULAR conditioner. This is when you get to choose your product by smell. Yum.

Curly or frizzy hair needs MOISTURIZING shampoos and conditioners that have extra emollients such as almond oil, argan oil, coconut oil, etc. These help to smooth the hair by adding moisture, weight and shine.

Once you know what type of hair you have, determine the condition of your hair:

Oily hair benefits from a CLARIFYING shampoo and a LIGHTWEIGHT conditioner. Also, consider a DRY SHAMPOO for in-between washes. Dry shampoo is a powder spray that suspends scalp oiliness into fluff! It’s a miracle product.

Dry hair loves a MOISTURIZING shampoo and conditioner and weekly deep-conditioning treatments. You can make your own DEEP-CONDITIONER by adding moisturizing oil to your regular conditioner, mixing and applying to shampooed, towel-dried hair. Let the treatment sit for an hour or overnight, depending on the season and your comfort level, then rinse with cool water.

Damaged hair needs PROTEIN shampoo and conditioner to repair porosity and to coat weak strands so they don’t break. Remember to deep-condition, too.

Enjoy!

Makeup For Men

Photo Mark DeFabry.  Makeup by Rebecca Schembri
Photo Mark DeFabry, Reno. Makeup for Men by Rebecca Schembri

Although most of our men these days leave makeup to the girls, there are times when it is helpful to even out that manly glow.  As a professional makeup artist, I get to freshen up male models before they get their pictures taken!

On photo shoots for men, I like to insist that I am not dolling the men up, I am toning them down.  This means a bit of bronzer on the bones and a touch of color to the cheeks and lips so everything looks moisturized and HEALTHY!  I am giving them an even glow so their audience sees the model, not the blemishes or a pale I-work-indoors skin tone.

Makeup for men takes ten minutes or less, depending on skin discolorations and photo shoot conditions such as sun and heat.  Check out the results!

Summertime Hairstyles

reno_hair_rebecca_schembri
Summertime Styles are Loose and Tousled

Want to keep on trend this season and still have your summer fun? Beach bag products are simple and fast and keep you looking great. Check out the tips below to do your hair on the fly.

For girls, hair is loose and tousled but not frizzy. Try a leave in conditioner or smoothing cream such as Catwalk Leave in Conditioner by TIGI. Remember to add a generous amount of product to enhance natural styling. Apply in the first five minutes after any water play.

Boys are wearing hair longer on top and shaved short on the sides. This look is super low-maintenance and easy to style with a small amount of styling cream.  Try Up Front Gel Pomade by Bed Head. It controls and shines and keeps that long hair off of the face. Reno_Hair_Rebecca_Schembri

Ask your hairstylist for ideas on using a single product for beachy summer looks that don’t require a mirror or a blow dryer. Enjoy the outdoors and stay fashionable!
