Prada Spring/Summer 2012 collection

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created hair with a bit of an edge at Prada today, which offset the beautiful Spring/Summer 2012 collection. “The look for Prada today is a bit like a girl curling her hair and putting in a bobby pin before going out at night- she did her hair herself. It’s kind of homemade, not finished, the hair of a woman with a David Lynch darkness– she’s more night than day with her hair. But she is overall a Prada woman because there is a refinement to her quirkiness.”–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips

Crest is a very familiar brand in my household. All my family uses Crest +Crest Kid and the alcohol-free mouthwash. Now I am super curios to try Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips. The reason I want to whiten my teeth with Crest 3D is because I want to have a bright smile when working with my Real Estate clients here in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley Arizona. You can’t never get a second chance to make a first good impression in business.
