The Beauty Parlor Confidential

Spring is almost here . Can't hide under the Hounds tooth any longer.


Men have the Barber Shop. Women have the Beauty Parlor as women of a certain age refer to it in the Boston Area. I got my hair done on Saturday in a little salon, a one room salon with two chairs and a nail bar. The room had a down too earth yet arty vibe to it. The stylist/owner was knowledgeable with current trend also very funny. I sat in her chair wanting a change in the worst way. Originally I wanted cherry cola foils in the worst way She shook her head no. Red is more fall you need light around your face, lets do some bronze, caramel, blonde foils. I’m going to give you wispy bangs , lots of layers to make you look chic. She wrapped my head in a crown of tin foil. While we talked about the Elton John Concert she was going too that evening. I also mentioned how I was going to see a certain band I love April 2.


This is me prior to the sassy cut. I was wearing the
bun for over a month . Dont I look like a happy camper?




One older women chimed in “I like Celine Dion , She has a voice on her “ I often think the beauty salon is our version of a men’s locker room. Where we talk about sex, lies, spanks, food. My cheeks hurt from laughing so hard as the lively conversation ensued. Soon my foils were removed, hair washed, layers cut. For me it was a metaphor for cutting away the cold dark winter. Letting the spring sunshine come on in. I wish you could bottle the feeling of fresh from the salon. You feel lighter and sassy with spring in your step.



I promised everyone a smile . look look there it is






So there you have it my afternoon at the salon. I didnt go into depth beacause what happens at the salon, stays at the salon.  The next piece will be about concert fashion for less. We spend allot of money going to these shows. Hopefully I will be able to give you a couple tips to take away the sting. Watch out Duran Duran by the end of this your going to have one awful hot mama comming to your show. Well there is an awful lot of hot mamas at any Duran show. I'll just be rocking it out with them. Lucky Lucky Wild Boys you are .See we always sneak them in , with the exception of the zombie ant post.

PTB Spring Reboot : Skincare

Clensing ( washing your face )   Cleansers : Cethaphil , Phisoderm, 
Splash warm water on your faceDispense product on your palmWith your finger tips , use upward and outward motions to apply product Once you scrubed your face . rinse it away with warm waterTake a towel and pat face dry 

Toner : Is debated in the beauty industry, I personally think it does a great job getting rid of excess dirt and restoring PH balance in your skin. If you want to skip it , Ill leave it up to you . Burts Bee's Toner ,witch hazel are my favorites though what you have on hand is good.
Wet a cotton ball with warm waterapply toner to cotton ball Using upward and outward motions Avoid eye contact 
Exfoliate : This is extremly important , you only have to do it 2x's a week. Since you shave it is a form of exfoliation your doing it already . Exfoliation is extremly important.  St Ives Apricot Scrub is my favorite  wet your face with warm water Take a quarter size amout of product apply it too yout finger tip…
