A new season always has us eager for change, be it a new summer hairstyle, a slick keratin treatment, a lighter hair color with the use of balayage, brighter makeup, or even a healthy, sexy, glowing tan (yes, ours is healthy!)

Here is our list of summertime beauty must-haves for enviable hair, skin and secrets to “how does she look that good?”

Get Glowing

No secret here!  A tan makes you look better, feel sexier, look slimmer and allows for less or no makeup at all!  We have an organic, streak-free, non-sticky, odorless spray tan that looks like you spend a weekend at the beach!  All with not an ounce of harmful sun touching your skin.

Meet Kat from Coco Glow!  Kat is our in-house “glow to” girl for an amazing tan!  The products she uses are organic and natural, contain no oil, are fragrance free, water based and are fast drying with no harsh dyes or chemicals.  You’ll never look “orangey” or feel sticky.

Start summer off with a glow, knowing you’re doing your skin good!

Now that’s enviable!

Lighten Up

Balayage……Also known as hair painting is another way to lighten up those locks for summer instead of the traditional foils you may be used to. If you haven’t tried balayage, maybe it’s time for a bit of a change!?  Talk to your colorist!  If you haven’t ever had any kind of highlights, try a bit of balayage and lighten up this summer!  The amazing results below were done by Natalya, one of our many talented team members!

No More Mascara

Toss the mascara away!  The lash doctor is here!  Okay, she isn’t a lash doctor, but she is the most amazing lash extension pro you will ever know!  Dee Stefanou has become a very wanted woman!  She is in demand every single day she is in (which is 6 to 7 days a week!), but you won’t likely catch a glimpse of her, because she is locked away creating some of the most gorgeous, eye framing, luscious lashes your eyes will ever see!  Enjoy a summer full of no smears or smudges!  Wake up with stunning eyelashes you’ll go “batty” for!  No mascara = life changing beauty!

You will LOVE your lashes this summer! No more mascara, and they’ll be wondering, “how does she look so darn good?”

Toss the Brow Pencil

When Anna is in town you had better call early for your appointment because she is only here a mere 3 to 4 days a month, creating an instantly booked schedule the moment we announce she’s coming in!  Well known and loved for her facials, she also has become known for her Microblading!  Microblading is perfect if you have sparse brows and are tired of filling them in every day with a pencil.  No more runny brows when the weather turns hot and humid!  One appointment to consult with Anna, a second for the procedure ( where tiny brush like strokes with a sterile instrument with dye create semi-permanent tattoo-like hairs that look unbelievably realistic!),  and a third follow up procedure to fine-tune your new brows!  Voila!  Brows everyone will envy!

Keratin

Book your appointment for FRIZZ FREE hair this summer!  Sleek, beautiful hair can be yours!  Yes, there is a way to tame the frizzies and lay claim to shiny, enviable locks with our Keratin Treatment.  Schedule an appointment and love your hair this summer!

Nail It

Nails, both hands and toes are on display all summer so why not make sure they look their best? 

Rough, callous feet from the cold, dry winter months need some tender loving care, and our team of pros will have your feet baby soft and ready to show off in those new pair of sandals! 

We use our hands or everything so they need some TLC too!  Schedule weekly manicures to keep cuticles, skin and nails in tip top shape. Try a beautiful Gel Manicure for color and shine that lasts!  Break out of the plain nail color rut this season and go for something new and unexpected like a beautiful marine blue or shimmering lilac!

Summer is the time to go with fun bright colors or beautiful pastels. White is still very hot, and the classic French manicure is always a sure bet!


Summer Skin & De-Stress

You cannot underestimate the wonders of a relaxing massage.  It can take your tied up, knotted muscles that have been tensed from stress and make you feel like a new person!  Stress is bad.  We all know that it is imperative to your health to make time to unwind and let all the tension melt away.  Part of looking beautiful is feeling beautiful.  Stress can affect the way you look, the state of your skin and more, so it is really something very good you are doing for your body. 

On the subject of skin, let’s not forget that the needs of your skin change during the summer so make an appointment for a facial and have one of our estheticians go over a summer skin care routine with you.  We have only the best in skin care with lines like Sothys, SkinCeuticals, and Environ who provide products to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and protect.

And what could be better than getting together with a friend to get a massage or facial together and than having a healthy spa lunch on us?  It’s a wonderful special that you can book by giving us a call!

Introducing Our New Organic Spray Tan!

We are proud to introduce to you our new organic spray tan, Coco Glow! This unique spray tan formula is organic, odorless, and will never leave you with the dreaded orange look!  You will be left with a beautiful tan that will last 10 to 14 days, all without any harmful rays from the sun!

Whether you are just looking for a tanned glow for everyday, or you have a trip planned to a tropical location (lucky you!), a spray tan will have you looking and feeling more confident and sexy!  We also love that a tan can reduce the appearance of stretch marks, scars, spider veins and cellulite, not to mention making you look thinner (we LOVE that!).

Things to know:

  • Shower, exfoliate and shave prior to tanning appointment.
  • No moisturizing soap, oils or lotions prior which will interfere with your spray tan.
  • Wear dark, loose clothing and bring flip flops.
  • Get your mani/pedi prior to your spray tan.
  • Total time for spray tan application, approximately 20 minutes.
  • Do not use anything oil based or exfoliate skin afterwards.

What to do now?  Call us and book your appointment, and get ready to look like you just returned from a tropical vacation! (203)656-5656.

6 Beauty Trends For Spring 2016

There were so many different looks on the runways for Spring 2016! Designers like Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Tory Burch’s models glowed with that California girl feel.  Other designers presented models with bright candy apple colored lips (Jason Wu), a bit of concealer and nothing else!  Of course, there was the usual over-the-top hair and makeup for major drama; but not something you will see walking through your local mall!  The trends we loved from the shows were ones we could see sporting ourselves!  Here are the 6 beauty trends for Spring 2016 that we are loving!

VIBRANT LIPS:  Bold colored lips in pink, orange and candy apple red.

THE BLUES: Shades of blues in eye shadow’s and liners from pale blue to navy were everywhere, some done very subtle and others more dramatic.  The looks we liked were smoky and blended to perfection.  Seen too was a bit of sparkle, perfect for a night out on the town!

BRONZE BEAUTY: At Balmain’s fashion show, models were bronzed with makeup for a fresh, bronzed glow.  Want something that lasts a bit longer and doesn’t cause sun damage?  Try out our Organic Spray Tan (more to come on that in our next blog!).

EASY FUSS FREE HAIR:  Loose beach waves, low easy buns, single braids, ponytails and rope twists (simple to do… divide hair in two sections and twist each section clockwise while twisting both.  Secure with a tie) were seen on the beauties strutting down the runway

LONG DRAMATIC LASHES AND FULL EYEBROWS:  Beautiful long, dramatic lashes were seen in so many of the shows and as you know we love, love, love long lashes!  Be sure to curl your lashes and wiggle your mascara wand as you apply to the lashes to get good coverage.  Want fuss free lashes?  Try our amazing Eyelash Extensions which will transform your peepers in a flash!

Eyebrows were bold and full (none of the over plucking of the 1980’s!).  Fuller eyebrows present a more youthful appearance (a big plus!).
