All About Mom: A Guide to Gifting

All of us here at Evolution Lash Studio and Spa love Mother’s Day! It gives you the chance to get creative and show how much you appreciate Mom with personalized, thoughtful gifts. Although, coming up with great gift ideas can often be challenging, we came up with this useful guide to help you create the most unique gift this Mother’s Day!

This gift idea gives you the power to be creative and thoughtful while giving yourself a gift as well! Decorate a mason jar with flowers and other items along with a cute note to mom to leave in a safe place that is easily accessible to both of you.  Both of you can put loose change and extra money inside to create a small savings.  When the jar fills up, buy something or plan a trip- something you can do together. Maybe a Deep Cleansing facial at Evolution Lash Studio and Spa to get your skin ready for summer!

Create a bucket list of things you want to eventually do together.  You can design a board where you post each bucket list item and you can keep adding additional notes as you come up with more. You can plan to accomplish at least one of these goals each month! It can be the perfect opportunity for you to spend time together as well as conquer personal goals.

A memory jar is a jar in which you write down memories and keep them in a jar.  In a year, you read the notes in the jar to reflect on the memories of the past year.  For example, getting ice cream with mom on the boardwalk during the hottest day of the summer and it falling on the floor. Small memories like that will be the ones you will remember most, and it’s something you and mom can do together.

Of course, a spa day at Evolution Lash Studio will be relaxing and will give mom some time for herself.  Stop in anytime to get mom a gift card, or book her a surprise appointment! What mom wouldn’t want some time away?

Thank You 2016

Khloe Kardashian summed up 2016 perfectly...  "The new year is a good time to reflect on the baby steps I've taken, and how I've evolved. Not everything is a f--king race — it's the marathon of life! I think it's so important to acknowledge the evolution."  Well said Khloe, and that’s exactly what I want to dedicate my last blog of 2016 to – Evolution.

I opened my new location exactly a year ago December 1 and as many of you know, 2016 has been filled with many ups and downs along the way. Although I am happy I don’t have to relive many of the lows of this year, looking back from where I am today I wouldn’t change anything; I’ve learned so much more for 2016’s life hard lessons. Most of all, I am so grateful for continuing to move forward with my dream and my wonderful amazing clients.

Through Evolution Lash Studio and Spa, I have been blessed to meet such amazing people who brighten my days. They have all taught me so much, gave me honest advice when needed, and most importantly loyal support and encouragement throughout my journey. Truly I appreciate my clients who bring me such positivity and have become dear friends. Thank you to everyone from the bottom of my heart who has believed in me and Evolution Lash Studio and Spa.

Ev's Favorite Hair Product

ORIBE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

By far, this is my top favorite product line for my hair. Everyone who knows me knows by my work alone. I will always pick quality over quantity – and my hair is no exception to this rule. Oribe hair line is heaven sent, especially if you dye your hair like myself. These products are definitely on the pricier side. However, I don’t mind the splurge, and here’s why. The shampoo formula blends centuries-old healing oils and extracts with modern technology to rejuvenate and strengthen damaged locks from the inside out. Yes I said the inside out! Therefore, every wash revitalizes tired hair, returning it to a healthier, younger state, and simultaneously shields tresses from future damage.

In addition to the rejuvenating and strengthening treatment I get from every wash, I’m obsessed with the scent it leaves on my hair! It never leaves my hair feeling weighed down or dried out. After falling in love with this line, I wanted to try their Gold Lust shampoo. I found this to be the perfect daily shampoo for color treated hair. I have been using this line for years and never has it left my hair color looking dull or faded. Oribe conditioner is just as amazing! For those with dry or damaged hair and split ends, this is what you’re looking for.

 

TEXTURIZING HAIR SPRAY ouai

Like dry shampoo and hair spray had a baby! This ultra-lightweight hair spray builds incredible volume and texture. Its' formula absorbs oil and leaves your hair looking refreshed. Best part – no animal testing! I love recommending this to my clients because it’s the perfect fit for all hair types.
Straight
Wavy
Curly
Coiled
Tightly Coiled

The key benefits are that it builds volume and texture, absorbs oil, and refreshes hair. This talc-free multi-tasker is the ultimate go to product to achieve innately cool model-off-duty hair. The formula keeps hair looking full all day and night with more hold than a dry shampoo.

*Style tip: mist it on dry hair and scrunch strands out with your fingers for a loose, lived-in look. Flip hair upside down and spray for instantly fresh-looking hair. This product is scented with Ouai No. 3 Fragrance, containing notes of Italian bergamot, water lily, and white musk.
