Gavert Atelier Presents *Nagomi Hair Spa*



 

By, Sharon Curtis

 

For those who have been to Gavert Atelier hair salon in Beverly Hills, you know that they are always on the cutting (no pun intended) edge of the best treatments and technology available when it comes to hair. Gavert Atelier owners, Stuart Gavert and Cody Kusakabe frequently travel to Japan and bring back their favorite experiences to share with their clients.

 

"Gavert’s" latest Japanese inspired venture is the new, Nagomi Hair Spa, located in their new, luxurious second story expansion. "Gavert" categorizes this new hair spa as a "hairway to heaven".

 

I was fortunate enough to try this hair treatment for myself and it was truly relaxing and luxurious. The Nagomi Hair Spa features imported Yume chairs that align the body while the Japanese trained specialists perform magic on the head and scalp. The hair conditioning treatment is truly amazing and the scalp massage legendary.

 

Gavert Atelier recommends this treatment once per month for maximum results.

Strange Invisible Perfumes New Launch!



 

By, Sharon Curtis

 

 

I have some very exciting news! One of our favorite fragrance houses, Strange Invisible Perfumes, will soon be launching their new floral trio for Spring 2009. The three scents included in the trio are: Aquarian Roses, Epic Gardenia and Urban Lily. I have personally smelled these fragrances and can assure you that you have never smelled anything like it.

 

 

Several months back, I had the good fortune to meet the creator and owner of Strange Invisible Perfumes, Ms. Alexandra Balahoutis. This was the event where I was introduced to the Spring trio, and also given a great education on the process that goes into creating and producing these special scents. All of the fragrances made by "SIP" are organic and done without synthetic ingredients, thus when you smell them you become aware of the authentic scent produced by the ingredients used.

 

 

What most impressed me about Ms. Balahoutis, was her true care and artisan touch that makes the fragrances extremely delicate and luxurious.

 

 

I will try and describe the scents for you but you really need to experience them first-hand to truly understand them.

 

Aquarian Roses- An earthy, wild-rose with bright notes as well as warm notes of African marjoram and Sandalwood.

 

Epic Gardenia- Since the Gardenia flower can’t be distilled, this is Alexandra Balahoutis’ interpretation of the velvety, humid scent.

 

Urban Lily- The true essence of the lily of the valley, with it’s sweet and lush notes giving it great balance.

 

 

This trio is slated for release in March. They will be available through the Strange Invisible Perfumes flagship perfumery in Venice, California, www.strangeinvisibleperfumes.com and www.beautyhabit.com.

Brows: Groomed but not fussy

 

Eyes: Lined just on top, the lashes a mile long

Ted Gibson *Goodnite* Hair Repair Serum



 

By, Sharon Curtis

 

I got this special serum a few months ago and wanted to see the results before I wrote about it.

 

Ted Gibson, Celebrity Hair Stylist and Oprah regular, created Goodnite Replenish Hair Repair Serum not only to address malnourished hair, but also to treat the scalp. It’s infused with Wheat protiens, Wild Orchid Extract, Amino Complex and Vitamins A, B & E. These essential nutrients work to soothe the scalp and replenish, repair, condition and moisturize overworked hair.

 

It’s meant to be applied at bedtime, directly to the scalp and dry hair. It will absorb immediately so it won’t get on your bedding or clothing.

 

I have to warn you it’s not cheap. It’s $200, which is expensive, but it does deliver a very unique result. I think overall it worth the money to get your hair back to it’s optimum shape.

 

I personally have seen a tremedous change in my hair. I’ve been using it now for some time, and I notice that my hair is much shinier and supple.
