HOT SHAVES COMING SOON
After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Brooke Lanier spent a year in Italy and later earned her Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting fro the Tyler School of Art. She's roamed the world; showing her art in Rome, Prague, and across the United States; most notibly the Smithsonian Institute's S. Dillon Ripley Center and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
Her latest show, Going Away Without Moving opens on Thursday and is widely inspired by the artists own sense of adventure. "I took the title from an eight year old friend of mine" Lanier said, "He was going on vacation, but not going away. For me, it's an internal thing. You can go away without leaving where you are. The landscapes have contemplative meanings."
While the official number of pieces to be on display has yet to be finalized, the show's work has taken more than a year and a half to prepare and most of them are very large. "You're put in your place" she says, referring to the peripherally expansive pieces, "But, in a good way."
Thursday and Friday's "Going Away Without Moving" showcase is free and open to the public on the 4th Floor of the Camac Center — adjoining to the 12th Street Gym in Center City Philadelphia. (201 Camac Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107.) Light refreshments will be served with informal artist talks. Can't make the dates? Contact Brooke for a private showing.

9 people on the ARS Team are now certified in Hotheads Hair Extensions. We learned how to add length, volume, and chemical free hair color to any hair texture, color, and length. Take a look at what we did!
Hotheads Hair Extensions are human hair, adhesive weft extensions that are applied without the need for tools or heat. Our goal was to create a product for the salon professional that was simple…. fast…. and extraordinary; we have done just that.
Hotheads Hair Extensions are uniquely designed to lay completely seamless and undetectable in the hair. Manufactured with amazing quality human remy hair with the cuticle in tact allows our hair to be reapplied up to 3 times, while still looking and feeling amazing. Clients will get 8 to 10 weeks of wear from each application. Hotheads is an extraordinary revolution to the hair industry.
For clients, our products have completely changed the way their hair looks and how they feel about themselves. For stylists, this has completely evolved their extension business.
Rachid went to France early this year to visit an academy where he had intensive training on balayage techniques and serious training in hairstyling. He visiting the academy for a refresher and update on the latest trends. When he returned he organized and facilitated training for the Andre Richard Salon team that zeroed in on how to perfect a look for a persons lifestyle, skin tone and face shape. The advanced balayage techniques zeroed in on the client for their specific needs, face shape, skin tone, hair length and texture. Also cutting to compliment the balayage placement and of course the clients face and life style.

What is keratin?
Keratin is a protein and the major component in skin, hair and nails; in fact, the hair is mainly comprised of keratin-associated proteins. Keratin acts both as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layers of a hair strand) and as an internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair that helps determine its strength).
Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically and/or from environmental factors, such as the sun. This keratin loss exposes the hair’s cortex, making it susceptible to additional damage, and causes porous spots to develop—much like potholes in a road. Replenishing lost keratin helps to correct porosity and smooth the hair’s surface. It restores strength and elasticity, giving the hair a more youthful, healthy appearance.
What is unique about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy?
The innovative technology in our Smoothing Therapy treatments binds keratin to the hair. This process helps prevent humidity from penetrating the hair, thus locking out frizz. In addition, Keratin Complex Color Therapy incorporates this signature keratin technology into the hair-coloring process, which helps to make the hair stronger and smoother as it undergoes a color transformation.

Jumpsuits - whether toe-touching, strapless, or cap
sleeve rompers - are among the most versatile of
this spring's fashions.
Yet despite the slip-on appeal of the all-in-one, we tend to ascribe age limits and height requirements when it comes to deciding who can wear them.
"Jumpsuits aren't appropriate for women over ___ ," or "You need to be at least ___ to pull one off."
Nothing could be further from the truth.

Andre Richard Opens 3rd Salon in Midtown Village, and Celebrates with Lash Guru http://t.co/crOvGR17aU— HughE Dillon (@iPhillyChitChat) April 14, 2015
Remaining the best hair salon in Philadelphia requires action, so Rachid - Master Stylist and Artistic Director went to Paris to brush up on some technique and grab a few more while he was there.
When I asked Rachid what was covered most in the class he answered this:
"First I was the only one trained with two trainers and 1 assistant. The title of the training was global beauty meaning that it's not just about hair it's about a great consultation to determine which cut color and balayage will emphasize the woman's beauty. Cuts are pushed to the edge, colors are reinvented and balayage comes to emphasize movement and symmetry! The training was about a personalized look!"
