Things change. Societal norms adjust along with the times. Masculine meets feminine. Hard meets soft. Classic gets a contemporary upgrade. The beauty of today’s style is that anything goes, no matter what your age or gender. The age of barbering is making a comeback along with fun colors and dramatic styles. If you want to wear a colorful rainbow in your hair go for it.

Natural Beauty Without Compromise

The summer season is closely approaching. While everyone loves the sun, sand, and sitting by the pool, this is the time of year when many people experience extreme damage to their hair. The sun changes coloring. The oxidization destroys your vibrant coloring, tones it to a brassy hue and dulls the natural shine. The heat can degrade protein which otherwise protects your hair.  UV rays are alos damaging. The chlorine in pools and salt water can also cause hair issues. Your hair is at risk of becoming frizzy and brittle. How do we protect our hair when we are having fun in the sun?

Hello readers I’m hoping that this month finds you in great health, great spirits and most important some great shoes!! I am actually not a big fan of March , but I must say I am happy that it is finally here and New York Fashion Week is officially over!!
Although I promised myself this year I would not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of all of the fashion shows and events, it was completely unavoidable.  I battled the ice,snow and freezing cold of New York City to witness first-hand all of the hottest looks on the runway.

It’s All About The Product

Following up on our last column talking about whether color is good or bad, let’s take it up a notch and go to the extreme. How do you choose a product?

Mario’s Salon is a Tocco Magico salon. This is an Italian product line ( I know I’m biased), which is far ahead of any American color. The Tocco line, first of its kind, uses herbal extracts. The founder of this company is deeply committed in producing a line of product which protects the natural integrity of the hair and scalp.

Love and Fashion Week

February is here and I hope everyone is keeping warm and fabulous!! Which also means Valentine’s Day is approaching. I must confess this is one of my least favorite holidays for many reasons. First of all you start seeing the teddy bears and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates the very next day after Christmas which I believe is a little premature but hey I guess some people like to shop early?

To Color Or Not To Color? That is the Question.

Obviously, there is more to it than a simple yes or no answer. In today’s age, there are so many choices and so much information out there. As a society, the value of a woman is placed in her beauty. Beauty is often defined as looking young and vibrant.  We as a population are expected to keep up our appearances or fear destruction of life as we know it. This could affect our marriages, our career, and our relationship with our children. This is a whole other story all together the social norms of what is beautiful.

Bring in The New Year Glamourous Style

Every month, I, Chrissy Monroe, your new Fashion Forward columnist will bring you what’s new, hot and even some of my own personal predictions of upcoming fashion trends. As we start 2017, unique looks with velvet, sequins, fur and even chokers are hitting the pages of all the top fashion magazines! Talk about Glam!!

This season I am in love with the Velvet thigh-high boots in various heel lengths for everyone from the Kardashians to my next-door neighbor. With versatility, this boot can be dressed up with a simple mini dress or completely dressed down, over some jeans. Add a t-shirt and your choice of jacket and you have a hot ensemble. These boots can be found online at various price points and in an array of fabulous colors, or sometimes you might be able to score them from a local thrift store.
