I began my career as a makeup artist almost 25 years ago in Hollywood. After graduating the Joe Blasco Makeup Academy, I acquired certification and licensing in: F/X Special Effects & Prosthetics, Custom Blend Color Cosmetics and Aesthetics. I spent my first professional ten years in theatre and television. I moved to Las Vegas in 1994 and became the makeup artist to many of the stars, appearing weekly on the Fox Channel Morning Show. During this time I worked as the regional and national makeup artist for Christian Dior and Guerlain Cosmetics and seven years as the lead makeup-artist at the world famous Canyon Ranch Spa in the Venetian Casino Hotel. I was also awarded ‘Makeup Artist of the Year’ by Las Vegas Life Magazine. Seeking a change in climate, I moved to South Lake Tahoe, an area I have loved since childhood, in 2007. Here I continued to expand my skill base at Harrah’s and Harvey’s Casinos, specializing in Eyelash Extensions, Eyebrow Definition and Bridal Makeup (over 5000 brides to date).

High quality revolutionary beauty products, innovative trendsetters, and excellent customer service – just 3 of the reasons why SIGMA  is one of the fastest growing and top rated companies in the beauty industry. 

Last week I attended #IMATSLAS to see what was new in the world of makeup. The show was SOLD OUT – full of Professional Makeup Artists and a ton of young ladies who work for MAC and Sephora – it was easy to tell the difference by the amount of makeup on their face. (You guessed it, the seasoned artists did not look like drag queens!)

But one thing was for certain – they were ALL lined up, half way around the convention, waiting to buy their goodies at SIGMA. I had to check this brand out.

SIGMA has been around less then ten years – founded by a Brazilian  couple Rene and Simone, who together combine a degree in Business Administration and a PH. D. in Molecular Biology, who have created products  that are affordable, available and durable.

Rene and Simone pride themselves on creating products that fit the specific needs of the consumer -and  weather it’s makeup, brushes or eyeshadow, the Pro’s LOVE IT! The SIGMA makeup brushes are the top choice for most professional makeup artists – so it only seems fit Rene and Simone come up with a great way to take care of them… and they have!

Introducing the SIGMA BRUSH SPA GLOVE – a FUN way to clean your tools in 5 quick steps: Wash, Rinse, Refine, Rinse, and Shape. The glove has a variety of textures to effectively, quickly and safely deep clean your brushes with only a small amout of cleanser.

This divice is really amazing – a must have – totally BLOGGER worthy!-  check it out on YOU TUBE and visit the SIGMA site: www.sigmabeauty.com @SigmaBeauty

“EAR CANDLING” THE ANCIENT 4,000 YEAR OLD NATURAL HEALTH REMEDY @ WWW.PAULFISHERSALON.COM

image

What is the SKINNY on EAR CANDLING, AND WHY DOES IT GET A BAD RAP? 

If you google Ear Candling you will certainly find some intertesting articles written by Doctors that are not positive – the truth of the matter is, Ear Candling really hurts the profits of mainstream medicine that prefers a more expensive perscription remedy to heal allergies, sinus pressure, headaches, hearing loss, virtigo infections and more.

Many articles also warn you of  the danger of ear candling, due to the toxic ingredients found in drugstore brands – and the harm they can cause when properly misused by a non-professional.

Over the years I have seen amazing results from doing this treatment, and I ONLY use ALL NATURAL candles made out of 100% purified beeswax, unbleached cotton muslin and pure essential oils.

SO WHAT ARE JUST A FEW OF THE BENEFITS? 

~ CLEARS WAX AND DEBRIS FROM THE EAR CANAL 

~ RELIEVES PRESSURE FROM BEHIND THE EARDRUM 

~ SHARPENS MENTAL FUNCTION, VISION, HEARING, TASTE & COLOR PERCEPTION

~ EASES EARACHE, HEADACHE, & SINUS PRESSURE, ALLERGIES

~ RELAXATION FROM NEGATIVE CHARGE OF THE HERBAL SMOKE

~ BALANCE 

“PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING” – just try this treatment once, and you will see why people have been continuing to practice it for over 4,000 years. Sometimes the simplest things work the best.

BORAGE, ROSEMARY, & JOJOBA ~ 3 HOT, NEW BUZZ WORDS FOR CLEANSING FROM PRIVE @ WWW.PAULFISHHERSALON.COM

‘PRIVE formula aux herbes’  introduces HERBAL BLEND No. 17 – A Brilliant, “SHINING WEIGHTLESS AMPLIFIER SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER” the Keratin Straightening Pro’s are going CRAZY over!!! 

We recently started offering PRIVE Weightless Amplifier Shampoo & Conditioner at my salon because the stylists wanted a paraben-free product for cleansing that  was color safe, sodium chloride-free and safe to use with any straightening system – everybody loves it.

image

I was curious what others thought…

BEETA SALON is one of LA’s premere places to go for THERMAL STRAIGHTENING – they recently incorporated PRIVE PRODUCTS into their treatments, here is what Rashid (owner of Beeta Salon) has to say:

“The reason it’s great is beacause it ads fullness and body  – herbal blend infuses hair with weightless moisture and intense shine, while delivering excellent detangling and does not weigh the hair down.”

This is what PRIVE has to say about SPECIAL BLEND No. 17, and it’s 3 magical key ingredients:

Simmoindsia Chinesis (Jojoba) A nutrient rich botanical that can penetrate the hair follicle and strengthen hair fibers from within.  Adds volume and body to hair strands , thereby giving an appearance of thickness.  Adds shine, elasticity and softness to the hair. A natural emollient, jojoba fills in cracks that are on the surface of the hair cuticle, helping it to repair hair damaged by heat and styling.

Borago Officinalis (Borage) Has one of the highest levels of gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA , an omega-6 fatty acid that promotes hair growth, health and vitality. Helps make hair more lustrous and soft. Can repair follicles and keep them functioning well. It improves the skin’s water retention and provides nourishment for dry or damaged hair.

Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) A power herb used since ancient times for beauty. Stimulates and improves circulation to the scalp, thus encouraging hair growth. Gently cleanses hair due to it’s antibacterial property. Increases shine. Helps fight premature graying.

ADAMME ARTISTRY & THE 411 ON SYNTHETIC MAKEUP BRUSHES @ WWW.PAULFISHERSALON.COM

image

COMPANY’S LIKE AVEDA, THE BODY SHOP, NVEY ECO AND URBAN DECAY HAVE BEEN AVOIDING PETA’S “HIT LIST” FOR YEARS… BUT, IS USING SYNTHETIC MAKEUP BRUSHES A GOOD THING , OR A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD? 

I sat down with #GlobalBeautyMaster “Battle Of The Strands, 2014” Winner, Adamme Sosa (Owner, Adamme Artistry Cosmetics & Glam Box Studios) for the 411 on his Professional Makeup Brushes – and WHY synthetic???

Adamme: “My brushes stand out because of the bristle technology and softness to touch- the benefit to going synthetic blend opposed to the traditional all-natural animal hair is amazing, less adverse relations do to alergies, bristles continue to keep shape and softness for much longer then natural hair, synthetic brushes allow you to apply fresh, smooth, flawless makeup looks.

(For more about Adamme’s Pro Brush Sets, Check Out the current issue “Heart & Soul” Magazine,  “THE LIST” Gifts for Mind, Body and Soul ~ and at www.AdammeArtistry.com)

…Of course, there is a flip side – many people complain about the difficulty of blending with synthetic brushes, “Do you need to be a Professional Makeup Artist to use them?” – The  answer is “No!” …You just need to take a little time to practice, and it is well worth the trade off!

Here are the “Top 5 Reasons”  for making the switch:

1. Synthetic brushes made of nylon or polyester filaments are less likely to become damaged by the makeup itself or products you might use to clean your brushes.

2. Synthetic brushes are easier to keep clean because they don’t absorb the makeup pigment. Thisn means less cleaning and wear-and-tear.

3. Synthetic brushes are better for creating a soft, layered look with makeup.

4. Some people are sensitive or allergic to the animal hair that some brushes are made from, including squirrel, mink, sable, and horse hair. Synthetic brushes are better suited for people with those sensitivities.

5. Synthetic is great brush option for you and if you are vegan or choose not to use brushes made with animal hair. Brushes are cruelty-free and eco-friendly.

MK STYLING “FOREVER ENDS” FRIZZ, with TRISSOLA at www.PaulFisherSalon.com

imageimage 

MK STYLING introduces Trissola’s hottest new product to his clients this week!!!

Mike K is one of the most popular stylists in the LA market – his reputation for being the master of “Hair Smoothing” is unsurpassed!

This week I sat down with Mike K to ask  about Trissola & “Forever Ends” so I could from share some some of his amazing, professional hair smoothing secrets.

Mike says, “I choose Trissola because it is the ‘top of the line’ of Keratin treatments , it keeps the hair smooth and it also keeps the volume – this is what most my clients like, not to have hair that is flat and dull.”

Mike loves Trissola’s newest product “Forever Ends” – and has added this step to his already 120 minute treatment.

So, “What is Forever Ends, and how do you use it”

Repairs frayed ends
Resurfaces frazzled strands
Rejuvenates shine and manageability
Restores strength and resilience
To use for split-ends:
1. Apply approximately 1/4 ounce of Forever Ends to freshly shampooed, towel-dried hair. Apply only to the bottom 2 to 3 inches of hair.
2. Comb product throughout the ends to ensure complete and even coverage.
3. Blow dry hair completely using high heat and a round brush.
4. Once hair is dry, take 1″ to 1/2″ sections and flat iron each section 3 times to seal ends. Note: Iron temperature should be between 350ºF and 410ºF, depending on hair`s texture and porosity.
To use for silky blow out:
1. Apply Forever Ends to hair, using just enough to work through hair evenly. Do not apply at the roots.
2. Comb through to ensure distribution.
3. Blow dry using a round boar bristle brush.
The result: The look of ironed hair, without the iron. Silky, sexy and sassy.
What makes Forever Ends work?
Brazilian marine algae
Hypnea Musciformis Extract
High antioxidant power keeps hair healthy.
Deeply moisturizing for sexy softness.
Gellidiela Acerosa Extract
Rich in amino acids to restructure hair.
Soothes and smoothes.
Sargassum Filipendula Extract
Nutrient-rich to infuse needed strength.
Binds moisture to keep hair thick, lush.
Acai fruit Extract
Strong antioxidant that adds a seal of protection.

“COLOUR WAND” – The SECRET to Exceptional Hair Painting @ www.PaulFisherSalon.com

image

WHAT’S OUR SECRET TO EXCEPTIONAL HAIR COLOR? …”COLOUR WAND!” 

You may have heard the new buzz words “Balayage, Sombre, and Ombre” at your local salon, but what do they really mean? Simply put, it’s the art of “HAIR PAINTING!”

Celebrity Stylist, Martin Rodriguez, (a master colorist with over 30 years experience) designed COLOUR WAND, the only tool that allows precision color artistry –  our stylists  at PAUL FISHER SALON love the results, and so will YOU!

So why COLOUR WAND? Just ask Martin, who says,

“Your Hair say’s alot about you. The style can express sophistication at work and then be set free to a playful mood for a night on the town. But your hair color is an expression much more important, that should enhance each style no matter what the mood. Unlike shoes, handbags, or clothes, your hair color cannot be changed from a morning at work to a party at night. Don’t settle for an amateur colorist. You deserve quality.”

PAUL FISHER SALON is so excited to welcome Martin Rodriguez as he introduces COLOUR WAND at our first “ADVANCED-PRO EDUCATION” Class for 2015!

Please join us on Monday, Jan. 12th 2015 for a hands-on workshop, 10am to Noon.
