Pigtails & Crewcuts: Coming to Florida!

PIGTAILS & CREWCUTS SIGNS NEW FRANCHISEE IN CLERMONT, FLORIDA

In the spirit of sharing things I believe local Florida families will get excited about, I’d like to present this exciting news release regarding the recent purchase of three new children’s hair salon experiences coming to various parts of the state of Florida including Central Florida in Clermont!

Pigtails & Crewcuts, a children’s hair salon franchise based out of Atlanta, Georgia, recently signed a three-unit deal with owners Delena and Andrew Santoro in Central Florida.

The first of the three salons is expected to be located near Clermont, Florida, bringing the franchise’s fun and whimsical approach to children’s haircuts to the area. The franchise has over 50 children’s salons across the country, with two salons currently open in the Orlando area and the grand opening of its first South Florida location in Miami expected to take place later this spring.

“We are excited to be expanding our reach into new areas of Florida and look forward to working with Delena and Andrew to find the ideal location for each of their salons,” says Michelle Holliman, Vice President of Franchise Development.

About Pigtails & Crewcuts: Pigtails & Crewcuts is a children’s hair salon franchise created by parents for kids to offer a stress-free haircutting experience for the whole family. In addition to hair care services, Pigtails & Crewcuts offers a custom-line of kid-centric hair products and accessories, gifts, and a private party room for birthday celebrations. Franchise opportunities are available in the United States. For franchising information, please visit www.pigtailsandcrewcutsfranchise.com.

With all this exciting news on the horizon for Clermont, south Florida and wherever they choose for the third location, I felt it was a great move on the part of Delena and Andrew Santoro and I hope to be one of the first to review their new establishment in Clermont when it opens in the near future. Can you even imagine how much easier it will be to get your kids to go to the hair salon to get a cut or style for special events knowing how much fun the environment will be? Stress free hair cuts sounds good to me!

Making Your Hair a Feature To Be Proud Of

We place so much focus on different aspects of our appearance. While it’s extremely important to be comfortable in ourselves as we are, it’s also beneficial to bear in mind that the way we present ourselves can speak volumes about our character. We can use the way we look to forge a space for ourselves and communicate our identity to others. This can be achieved by curating the way you dress, how you do your makeup or skincare, and for some in today’s society – whether you have piercings or tattoos or not. But for now, let’s focus on hair. Here’s everything you need to know to make it a personal feature that you’re proud of!

 

Using the Right Hair Products

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when styling their hair is using the wrong products. Products can make a profound difference to both the health and appearance of your locks. Seeing as everyone’s locks are different, it may be best to consult with a specialist if you want to find the perfect products without having to search and try out trial and error time and time again. However, generally speaking, there are certain products that benefit general hair types. Here are some to consider.

 

Purple Shampoo

 

If you bleach your hair, chances are that you’re already tired of trying to strip your locks of brassy (or yellow tones). Toners are great for this, but they require a little specialist knowledge to apply properly with beautiful results. If you want to stay safe, try using purple shampoo instead. The purple hues in the shampoo neutralise the yellow tones in the hair. Find the best purple shampoo on the market and try it out!

 

Argan Oil

 

Argan oil has gained profound popularity on the market in recent years. So what’s the hype all about? Well, argan oil is produced by the Moroccan Argan tree and has various moisturising uses. Recently, companies have been incorporating it into shampoos and conditioning treatments for hair. It contains high doses of Vitamin E, which promotes healthy hair growth and antioxidants, which serve to boost hair cells. What’s more? It moisturises the scalp, preventing dandruff and encourage healthy hair growth from the root, even if you have bleached your hair or used heated styling products.

 

Learning How to Use Heated Styling Equipment

The most effective way of completely changing how your hair looks is to use heated styling products. Now, these can be harmful to your hair if set to too high a heat, or if used regularly. But for occasional use, they can be fun! Consider trying out straighteners, curling wands, and crimpers. Each can have a profound effect on the appearance of your hair, drastically changing your overall aesthetic. Learn how to use each type by watching different beauty tutorials. There are so many out there that will be specific to the exact piece of equipment that you have. You just have to scout them out! You could even watch them before you even purchase heated styling tools in order to decide which you want to invest your time and money in. Alternatively, watch and read specific reviews on each product to help you make your mind up!

 

 

 

Knowing What to Ask for at the Hairdresser’s

You may be comfortable with your current style, but when the time comes that you want to mix things up a bit, you’re going to have to take a trip to the hairdressers. We’re all well aware of that awful feeling when you leave the hairdressers with something that you definitely didn’t want and feel uncomfortable with. You head home and start an immediate search for hair growth treatments and products or colour strippers. Instead, you want to leave feeling and looking fresh and content with what you’ve got. So, how do you guarantee a good cut? Well, of course, you need to find a hairdresser who you can trust with your tresses. But the key to getting what you want from your stylist is effective communication. Remember that even the greatest hairdresser can fall short of your expectations if they don’t have a clear idea of what it is that you want. Here’s a quick guide to some basic hairdressing terms so that you can effectively convey what you want during your consultation and understand whatever your stylist says to you.

 

“Layering”

 

Layering is a hairdressing technique that works for the majority of hair types. Whether your hair is long, short, mid-length, asymmetric, even, straight, curly, volumised, or silky sleek, it can work for you. So chances are you’ve heard the term thrown about a few times before! But what actually are layers and do you want them? Well, layering involves leaving the bottom layers of hair longer while trimming the hair from the crown of the head into short layers. It can give the illusion of length to shorter styles, or the illusion of volume to  The other is to give the illusion of volume. The differences between the layers can be subtle or drastic, forming a stepped look. If you wear your hair curly, layers are greatly recommended, as they minimise the weight of the upper parts of your hair, meaning that curls can stay in for longer.

 

“Blunt Finish”

 

The blunt cut is a hairdressing staple. Made famous by Vidal Sassoon, this cut involves a complete straight finish across the bottom. It’s absolutely perfect if you want a sleek and neat cut.

 

“Choppy Finish”

 

For those who don’t have all too much time on their hands when it comes to daily styling, nice neat finishes may be a little too high maintenance. So why not consider a choppy finish? This involves the hair being finished in a less uniform look and requires fewer touch-ups. You also don’t have to check into the hairdressers as regularly for shape ups!

 

These are just a few ways to alter the appearance and health of your hair, helping you to express yourself through its style! So, improve on your current hair regime and try them out!

Beauty Products You Might Want To Avoid

Most ladies like to spend money on the latest beauty products to ensure they always look stunning. However, there are some types of items that can cause a lot of damage, and so it’s sensible to avoid them in most instances. This article will draw your attention towards some of the things you’ll want to consider the next time you head out to your local beauty store to stock up on the latest brands. These items don’t cause problems for everyone, but they can have adverse effects, and that’s why you need to be careful. With a bit of luck, after reading the advice from this page, you will make better decisions in the future.

 

 

Perfumed moisturizers

 

Some people have no issues when it comes to using moisturizers that contain perfume for fragrance. However, those with sensitive skin can sometimes have an adverse reaction to those products. In many instances, they irritate the surface of the skin, and they can even encourage eczema to form. Those who have problems with those items tend to notice red blotches on their skin that can sometimes burn and cause pain. If you have any concerns about products of that nature, just be sure to read all the information on the packaging before using them on your skin. It’s always sensible to use a small amount in a “test area,” and then wait five minutes to see what happens before covering yourself in the cream.

 

Just be sure to look for moisturizers that say things like:

 

  • All natural ingredients
  • Perfume free
  • Fragrance free

 

Shampoo containing sulfate

 

There are lots of reasons you need to be careful when it comes to the shampoo you use on your hair. Firstly, some products contain ingredients that can damage the hair in many different ways. Items that use sulfate often require some research before you use them on your head. According to writers from sites like https://soundbodylife.com/best-sulfate-free-shampoos-list/, research proves that sulfate can strip the hair of its color damage the hair, and cause skin irritations.

 

Thankfully, most shampoos do not use sulfate, and so you just need to select a brand that only uses natural and harmless ingredients. The internet is your friend when it comes to discovering the best items and getting the best prices. So, make sure you shop around! Also, be sure to ask your hairdresser about the products they plan to use before letting them loose with your hair. Some professionals know less about this issue than the average lady on the street.

Anything containing formaldehyde

 

Lots of cosmetics companies use formaldehyde in their products to limit bacteria growth according to http://www.foxnews.com/health/2015/07/27/. That means the beauty items you purchase will stay in good condition for longer than they otherwise would have done. However, apart from being potentially linked to nasal and nasopharyngeal cancers, the chemical can also cause a lot of irritation and adverse effects. Some of the most common products that can contain formaldehyde include:

 

  • Nail polish
  • Body wash
  • Conditioners
  • Cleansers
  • Eye shadows

 

So, make sure you always read the small print on the back of the packaging, and never pick up an item if it contains that dangerous chemical.

 

Permanent and semi-permanent hair dyes

 

According to the National Cancer Institute, many permanent and semi-permanent hair dyes contain more than 5,000 different chemicals. A small number of those ingredients can cause cancer and other illnesses. More than a third of women over the age of eighteen use those products every year, and around 10% of men do the same thing. For that reason, it’s vital that you take the time to research the subject and ensure you never place yourself at risk. Ideally, you should only use products on your hair that don’t contain aromatic amines. That was proven to cause cancer in animals during the 1970s, and experts have many concerns about the effect it has on humans.

 

As you can see from the information on this page, some of those beauty products on the high-street probably do more harm than good. Considering that, it’s about time we all started to pay more attention to the chemicals we use on our bodies. For whatever reason, most people seem to think that if it’s available at their local store, then it must be safe. Sadly, that is rarely the case, and so we all need to take action to ensure we educate ourselves (and our friends) about the dangers we face. Share this post with people you know, and maybe you’ll save them some pain or discomfort in the future.

Fall In Love With These “His And Her” Gift Ideas

adult-1866798_1920

Buying for a couple can be difficult. What gifts will appeal to both him and her? It’s a challenge that faces many a gift-buyer, but it’s not a difficulty that can’t be overcome. Fortunately, the good people at Etsy, Amazon and a host of other outlets have been working hard to come up with ideas for gifts for both partners, saving you a lot of hassle. Take a lot at some of these cool gift ideas.

Novelty Tea Towel Set

What do couples like to do once they’ve been married a couple of years? The dishes, of course! But the dishes aren’t always a lot of fun. Sometimes they’re downright annoying. That’s why Black Bird Tees, a company that makes tea towels, is trying to inject a bit of humor into the activity. They sell a pair of tea towels: one reads “you wash” and the other, “I’ll dry.” The towels are available on Etsy for around $38.

valentine-1953779_1920

Personalized Aprons

Tea towels aren’t the only thing that is personalizable in the kitchen. According to a blog post entitled, 20 Wedding Gift Ideas for Under $50 on DontPayFull, you can now get his and her personalized aprons too. Aprons are ideal for couples who seem to spend their weekends doing nothing but baking and cooking extravagant meals. Personalized aprons can be printed with whatever message you like. Currently, they’re on the market for around $50.

His And Her Arrow Signs

Sometimes one partner’s stuff starts encroaching on the space of the other and things can get out of hand. That’s why a personalized his and her arrow set is such a good idea. It’s a clear demarcation of boundaries between one person’s stuff and another’s. There’s all sorts of places these little arrows could go, like in the closet, pointing in the direction of each person’s clothes. The arrows are made by Hoast and Toast and they can be picked up on Etsy for around $64.

Table Mug Set

Table mugs are an obvious way to buy something that’ll suit both him and her and will work as a set. Now a company called Neurons Not Included has come up with an interesting concept, just in case you happen to know a pair of married chemists. The mugs are labeled “HIS” and “HERS” using letters from the periodic table. For “HIS” we have hydrogen, iodine, and sulfur. For “HERS” we have hydrogen, erbium, and sulfur. (What’s erbium?) At any rate, if you happen to know a pair of science-lovers then these mugs are the perfect gift for them. Neurons Not Included are selling their mugs for around $24.

His And Her Money Bank

The piggy bank has been a tradition in families for over a hundred years. But the only problem with the piggybank was that once the money was deposited, you had no way of knowing whether it was yours or your spouse’s. Now though Baker’s Farmhouse has come up with a solution. They’ve come up with a tabletop bank, similar in concept to the original piggy bank, but with two chambers, one for him, one for her.

Each of the chambers has been labeled. The money on his side of the bank is for “fishing,” “hunting” and “nights out with the boys.” The money on her side of the bank is for “diamonds,” “shopping sprees” and “dinners out.” What’s more, the bank itself won’t break the bank. Currently, it’s on sale on Etsy for around $12.

His And Her Mailbox

Perhaps you know a couple who refuses to go paperless. Well, if you do, Retro Getgo Vintage might have cooked up the perfect gift idea. Essentially, it’s a mailbox that’s been divided in the middle, so it has two compartments: mail and “famail.” It’s also made out of carved wood and is on sale for around $20.

Luggage Tags

Being married is all about having great life experiences with the other person. As a result, married couples fly all over the world looking for new adventure. The only problem is keeping track of their baggage. Now, though, Leather Made Nice thinks it could have found the answer: leather luggage tags. These tags can be personalized to say whatever you want, but a cool idea is to have them cross reference each other, making them more lovey dovey. At the moment, the tags are selling on Etsy for around $45.

Mason Jar Cups To Go

Mason jars began as a thing on DIY blogs, but now the trend is all over the internet. Everybody seems to want to experiment with them. As a result, a company called Swiss Miss Closet has come up with “his and hers” mason jars for couples on the go.

Staying Within A Budget Just Got Easier

piggy-bank-850607_1920

It has been a fascinating journey on the road to financial freedom. Learning new ways to save money and trying to stick to a budget can be both exciting and exhausting! In today’s modern society there are so many ways you can lose track and derail onto a course that ends in ruin. Between enjoying theme parks and family vacation time to eating out and celebrating family birthdays or holidays, these are some of our biggest budget busters. Those special memory-making moments can sneak up on you with the cost and become detrimental to your pocketbook – unless you learn to plan ahead and spend wisely!

Make a List and Plan of Action

I’m happy to say that I’ve recently discovered a great new way to enjoy my financial freedom staying within a budget and still getting to enjoy spoiling my family on special occasions. I love to be a giver, and the delight I feel in being able to surprise a loved one or friend is worth its weight in gold (not including the look on their faces when they receive the surprise!) I decided to start organizing my family events and holidays in a planner. It’s actually mentally rewarding to jot down lists of items I’ll need to plan the best surprise gifts, outings, or accommodations and destinations for travel adventures.

A Better Way To Shop and SAVE

The great part is, I can do all of this with the click of a button by visiting any one of my latest discovery sites for saving with coupons! Having the ability to shop around from the comfort of my own home and peek at a variety of places that offer coupons or vouchers for as much as 10, 20, 30, even up to 50% off or more is definitely a plus! That’s certainly a better way for me to be investing my shopping time instead of wasting hours at the mall paying full price on most gift items. This way I know whatever I choose will end up giving my family good value and a fair price to stay within our budget.

Broaden Your Search

There are lots of great bargains out there to grab using coupons online for loads of practical everyday items too! You can find some for getting garden products and lawn care items, to acquiring some pretty impressive coupon vouchers towards buying your next TV.  I’ve learned that sometimes to get the best deals, you need to consider buying from companies not only within the USA, but in many areas around the globe who offer delivery to the US. I’m just happy I don’t feel trapped into spending as much anymore when I want to be a blessing to someone. Shopping from home or on your mobile device is a much better way to go these days and finding the right places to save can mean all the difference.

Smiley Happy Children: Top Tips For Healthy Family Teeth

child-476507_1920(1)

Ensuring your children have healthy teeth throughout their childhood and into their adult life is an important part of being a parent. Anyone that has suffered from a severe toothache will never want their child to experience the same pain. Good practice with regards dental hygiene is something we all want to pass on to our kids, and it can start at a young age.

It’s all in the routine

Developing a brushing and flossing routine while your child is young teaches them that it’s a very normal practice of day-to-day life, and something which can benefit mom and dad too. Cleaning teeth when you all wake up, and again before you all go to sleep, makes it far more difficult to forget, and it cements it as part of their morning and nighttime routines. Allow them to brush their teeth on their own with supervision as they get older, maybe trying to make it into a fun activity too.

 

Get regular dental checkups

Everyone in the family needs regular dental checkups throughout their life. Not only are they checking for cavities and gum health, but in children, they will check that their teeth are developing properly as infants, that there’s enough room in their jaw, and that there will be no problems further down the line. Taking your child to the dentist from a young age teaches them that there is nothing scary about a dental hygiene check, and so it will help to establish good practices as they get older.

 

Develop your home remedy repertoire

Teething problems, abscesses, and toothache are common in many households, and sometimes it’s not possible to visit a dental practitioner immediately after onset. Having a repertoire of home remedies allows you to treat painful problems in your kids and yourself without having to necessarily see a dentist. Websites such as https://homeremedyshop.com/ are full of great ideas for how to deal with all manner of dental problems with just the things you keep in your pantry.

 

Keep sugary drinks to a minimum

Avoiding teaching bad habits to kids is one of the best ways to ensure their dental health into adulthood. By offering too many fizzy, sugary drinks, sweets, or chips, not only does it put the health of their teeth at risk immediately, but also in later life. Water or milk are the best drinks, especially while their teeth are still developing, but also as they get older.

 

Be a good role model

Good dental hygiene habits start really young, and they’ll pick most of their habits up from mom and dad. After all, they look up to you both and tend to want to copy you. If they see you brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing after meals, and drinking water, not soda, they’re going to learn all the right lessons from you as you teach them the importance of good dental health.
Teaching your kids the right lessons for good dental hygiene has to start young. Just remember to practice what you preach, and there’ll be great family teeth all around.

Treat Yourself: Beauty Products You’ll Fall Head Over Heels With

fashion-girl-makeup-paint

Christmas is over, and Valentine’s Day is firmly upon us, so it seems like the perfect time to treat ourselves or the women in our lives. Beauty products are the perfect gift for ourselves at Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single, or you just fancy something new to congratulate yourself for sticking to your resolutions so far. The beauty market has boomed in recent years, and there’s just so much to choose from now. If you’re looking for a treat for yourself this Valentine’s Day, look no further.

A rich new moisturizer

Our skin has been taking a battering over the winter months. Dry air, high winds, and central heating all cause havoc on our complexion, which is a great excuse to splurge on a rich, moisturizing skin cream to repair all of the winter’s damage. One moisturizer which is guaranteed to put your skin back to normal, and leave the most beautiful natural glow, is Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream. Makeup artists and celebrities rave about it, so it’s definitely worth the price tag.

A romantic palette

Since it’s Valentine’s Day and everything is meant to be romantic and covered in love hearts and flowers, why not choose a new item of makeup that reflects this? Kat Von D and Too Faced have teamed up to bring us the most adorable heart-shaped eyeshadow palette, the Better Together Ultimate Collection. With 12 eyeshadows, an eyeliner, and a mascara, you’re getting loads from your money, and a beautiful product as well.

A floral perfume

Spring is just around the corner, and in the true spirit of Valentine’s Day, why not treat yourself to a beautiful, elegant floral perfume. Maison Margiela’s Replica Promenade in the Gardens is like a stroll through a rose garden in a bottle. Floral notes are great for springtime, and this one particularly will carry all the way through summer with the spiciness of patchouli and sandalwood.

Anything in the sales

To be honest, the reason Valentine’s Day is so great is because most shops still have their sales on, so you can treat yourself without feeling too guilty about the cost. Shopping online for gifts is a great way to make the most of the deals, so have a look at Fingerhut gift ideas, as well as the sites for Bloomingdales and Nordstrom until you find something that takes your fancy, at a quarter of the price.

A spa visit

After the stress of Christmas, you’ve earned yourself a spa visit. A massage, facial, and a mani-pedi are an absolute must after the party season. Check out Elemis spas across the country for the ultimate day of pampering. There’s no better Valentine’s gift for yourself than that of relaxation.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just a day for treating your loved ones; you also deserve a treat as well. There are some stunning beauty gifts on the market, so give them a go and let me know what you think.

Winter Fashion Trends For Men – Keep Him Trendy When It’s Cold

guy-1189001_1920

Arguably, there are two ways in which men go through the winter months of the year: There are the men who rely on their old jumpers and the Norwegian hand cream that they got for Christmas the year before, and those who hope for the best and wear tight tee-shirts all year long. Often, while women know how to adapt their fashion to wear the appropriate clothes to survive the colder months, men tend to care a little less about it. But thankfully, you can help your male partner, friend or relative to face the cold months in style with these few tips. Why not find your inspiration for a useful and beautiful Christmas gift in here too?

Invest In A Warm Coat

It is not uncommon for many men to continue to wear their fine leather jacket or their favorite denim as sole protection as the snow covers everything in a white coat. Fortunately, the fashion trends for the winter season 2016/2017 are heavily inspired by outerwear so that every man should find a coat to their liking. The 1980s bomber jacket is back and is now fully embellished for a slightly edgy touch. For those who prefer more classical shapes, the duffle coat is the most popular coat this season, and it has the advantage to keep everyone warm and cozy. From standard colors in dark blue, gray or black, to more vibrant shades such as copper or green, for example, the duffle coat is flying on a wind of renewal and original classicism that will please many trendsetters.

Buy Him Specialist Skin And Beauty Care

Men’s skin is sensitive and can get very raw with the winter cold. Often, shaving can irritate the skin and make it more susceptible to suffer from cold temperatures and the wind, leaving the face very red and sore. Thankfully, you can find in shaving balms that are full of vitamins to moisturize the skin and protect it in winter. If you are looking for serious advising on shaving care and products, you should pop into your local barber in town to discuss the different products Also, if your man is not a shaver, this is no excuse not to protect his facial hair against the cold. Use the opportunity to review beard oil with an expert barber to find the product the best adapted to his needs.

A Cozy Alternative To The Christmas Jumper

The winter season has brought many trends for men so that everyone will be able to find a style that fits their personality. For the young and dynamic man, layering a shirt or a long sleeve top with a knitted polo shirt is the best way to keep insulated as the temperature dips. This is also perfect to make a bold color statement with a sometimes a little dull office wear. For the man who prefers to wear jumpers, the revival of the 1970s roll neck jumper is still very trendy. Don’t worry if he doesn’t like the feeling of a tight collar around his neck. Funnel necks have made a stylish arrival in the winter fashion: They look at their best combined with a tight pair of jeans. Why not review some of the essential knitwear fashion for men?

How To Get Ready For The Festive Season Glam

Processed with VSCO with e5 preset

It’s official; the holiday season is upon us. Whether you’re excited for the festivities to begin, or are a little apprehensive, there’s no reason for you not to enjoy the glamour that comes with it. It’s always smart to stick to the standard healthy tips will all know and love, but during Christmas, there’s a little more we can do.

Getting ready for the festivities relates to preparing your body. Not only do you need to be ready for the food that you’re about to consume (along with any alcohol that could be consumed), but you’re likely to be really busy too. So, to get through it all in style, here’s how to do it…

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

First up, you’re going to want to stay hydrated. Water is so good for your skin, as well as your health. If there’s a risk that you’re going to have a lot on, be rushing around or having a few late nights, it’s time to up your water intake. It’ll help to keep your skin looking as flawless as possibly for the festive season, not to mention keep you healthy despite the delicious foods you’re likely to devour.

Detox Your Hair

Having great hair is something we all love. Some days, our locks are luscious and lovely, others they’re dry and depressing. So, to whip them into shape this Christmas, a detox is on the cards. Everything from hair masks to nourishing oils should be on your shopping list for the Holidays. You might even consider treating yourself to a new look for the season and say hello to a new you this New Years.

Plan Ahead

Next, you’ll want to plan ahead. Get your outfits arranged ahead of time. You know what events you have coming up, from parties to casual gatherings, so by planning ahead, you’ll save yourself a world of worries. If you’re going to get through the festive season full of glam, is an essential step that cannot be overlooked. You’ll know exactly what you’re wearing and when, rather than rummaging through your closet at a moment’s notice.

Add The Finishing Touches

Now that you’ve got your outfits in line, you’ll want to think about the accessories too. Even if you’re not a big jewelry wearing, it’s fun to make a change for the festive season. And where’s the glamor without jewelry? Whether you pull out a few simple classics or go all out with a lot of bling, the finishing touches are so important. You can even find earrings for sensitive ears if you’re worried about wearing them for hours on end.

Practice Makes Perfect

And of course, you’re only ever as glamorous as your hair and makeup. If you’re looking to pull out all the stops this year, you might be tempted to try something new. But, if you do, practice before the big day. Head to youtube and trial hair and beauty looks that you think you might like. It’s a good idea to get used to any new techniques, so you can be issue free when the real time comes.
