I learned a good lesson this past December. My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary with a quick trip to New England…just a few days, a change of scenery, and then back to work. Because it was such a quick trip, I thought, well, I don’t need my usual beauty supplies; I’ll just…

I had a friend ask me an interesting question the other day – “How long have you been wearing the same makeup?” When I thought about it, I realized that my foundation dated back at least 12 years, my brand of mascara and eyeliner had stayed the same for 25 years, and truly, the only…

Between decorating, cooking, shopping, and wrapping – not to mention all those holiday parties – I have little time to add holiday sparkle to my daily beauty routine. So, of course, I asked the beautiful beauty experts at Fantasia Salon and Hair Restoration Center to share some of their favorite holiday short-cuts. Fantasia has a…

winter skin care

Awwww, winter – the perfect time to hibernate inside, drink hot chocolate, and watch old black-and-white sappy movies – right?

I think we’ve all experienced those “down-and-out” days when we only had enough money to buy a roll of toilet paper at a time. For many, like me, it occurred during those college days, and the thought of buying salon products for my hair or face was so far beyond me, I used to dream…

hair thinning hair loss

I love singing in my church choir, not only for the joy and love it brings to my life, but also because it’s a great way to socialize with my friends. Recently, I was rehearsing in my usual place – a step behind and a step up from the choir row in front of me…

I have a confession to make – even though I live in Minnesota, I haven’t always been mindful of keeping my skin moisturized during the coldest months of the year. Until last year, that is –that’s when I noticed that my dry, itchy skin was actually beginning to crack and flake in places, so much…

If you’re like me, all summer long, you’ve pulled your hair into a ponytail or a bun, or simply worn it short while the temperatures climbed ever higher. But now it’s September, and it’s time to fall in love with your hair again. New hair color, length, style, or hair texture? The professionals at Fantasia…

Okay, I admit it. All summer long, I’m not only lax about my beauty routine…I’m just plain lazy. I pull my hair into a messy ponytail, I leave the house with barely a stitch of makeup on, and my nails – well, the last time they looked this bad was…last summer! It’s to be expected,…
