April 2012 Meetup at Glenn Michael Salon

The Southern Fashion Bloggers’ April 2012 meetup was generously hosted at and by Glenn Michael Salons in Metairie, Louisiana. Not only was a fabulous time had, but our gathering was entertaining and informative, thanks to the invaluable tips provided by the Glenn Michael team.

Tweeting tips from the day #blowout101:

“Hair gets frizzy not from overdrying, but from lack of control.”

“Hair does not stay where it is heated up. It stays where it is cooled off. Hot to dry, cold to hold.”

“Your tools matter! Ceramic round brush and nozzle on the blow dryer for control.”

“3 elements to a look: 1) Hair texture, 2) Hair cut, 3) Hair color. All combine to create your style.”

One damn good blowout

In addition to blowout 101, we were treated to makeup tips, learned about Desigual, a clothing line with an international customer base.

Desigual is perfect for festival season

In addition to the #Blowout101 tips we received (and yes, use today), we also learned about an amazing service Glenn Michael Salons has introduced to the area. The Evolve Hair System is “a unique semi-permanent hairpiece that provides body, volume, texture, and color without the use of chemicals and requires low maintenance. The Volumizer meets both hair needs and fashion wants, without physical limitations.” The before and after photos are nothing less than unbelievable. And since it’s human hair, you can treat it as you would your own hair; color, blowdry, flat iron, curl. While the transformations are stunning, the stories are often beautiful. Currently, the service is exclusive to Glenn Michael Salons in Louisiana, which is one of only two certified salons from here to South Carolina.

Many thanks to Glenn and his team for the wine, treats and goodies, and for hosting the Southern Fashion Bloggers at your salon!
