Wearable Art Fashion Show Featured Artist of the Day: Mitchell’s Salon

The Wearable Art Fashion Show is tonight! I’m so excited! The event will take place at Lunar Lounge starting at 7pm will all the proceeds benefiting Kenzie’s CLOSET. Online ticket sales have ended, but walk-ins are welcome! It’s $10 at the door (100% donated to Kenzie’s) or bring a dress (cocktail dress, bridesmaid dress, etc) to donate as your ticket in. For the past week, we have featured all the wearable art artists and vendors and today’s is: Mitchell’s Salon & Day Spa.

They are the official Salon and Spa for Cincy Chic, so they do all the hair/makeup for all our fashion shows. Tonight’s fabulous fashion show included! Amy Kirchen, the clothing designer who will be featured tonight, really targets the posh professional, which is 100% me, so I’m excited to see all the looks they give the girls! (They will also have some great coupons in all the swag bags!)

You’ll have to come to the show tonight to see Mitchell’s amazing hair/makeup work on the models, but I will share with you something I think is really cool that they do: “Find out Fridays” on their facebook page. Each Friday, they share helpful tips via a short, informational video. Embedded in this blog is today’s Find out Friday! It’s about  2nd Day Styling Tips for Short Hair – Wash hair night before, get up and use Mindy’s 5 Minute Regimen to be styled perfectly for the day.

I really like the videos, so I think I’ll make a habit of reposting them here on my blog! Enjoy!


Posh Pedis at Mitchells Salon & Spa

My girlfriend, Lauren, and I were chatting at a recent Champagne Tuesday about how gross our feet got over the winter and spring. We’re both runners, so our feet take a beating and they get a little gnarly… especially during the closed-toe shoe months.

So, we decided to get a pedicure together. I really needed one because I’d soon be going on a beach vacation (which I’m on right now! yippee!). I gave Mitchell’s Salon & Day Spa a call to book two pedicures. I was just going to book two regular ones until I found out they had all kinds of fancy ones!

They have their signature whirlpool (the regular pedi), and then fancy ones: shellac, paraffin, hot stone and sports. I decided to get the shellac since I figured it would hold up best through all the sun and sand on my beach vaca. And Lauren got the paraffin to help rehydrate her dry dogs.

For the paraffin, they pour the warm (it’s not hot!) wax over your feet and then they put bags over your feet to keep the moisture and warmth in. Then, once it cools, they take the bags off and peel the wax away. Lauren couldn’t believe how soft it made her once-callused feet feel!

And, like I said, I got the shellac. Now, I blogged about getting shellac on my hands here, but I hadn’t gotten it on my feet before. For shellac, they put the polish on one layer on at a time, and bake it on with a UV light. They do all the scrubs and moisturizing after the polish is on, so the oils don’t interact with the shellac curing process. And what I love best about the shellac is that you can put your shoes right back on after your pedi and don’t have to worry about messing up your polish!

It’s now been several days after the pedicure. I’ve gone on three barefoot walks in the sand and the polish still looks glossy and brand new! I knew I’d be putting this blog together so I called Lauren yesterday to see how her pedi is holding up. She said her little piggies are still looking pretty and her skin is still soft and smooth.

Thanks to the ladies at Mitchell’s who gave us such fab feet fanciness! We’ll definitely be back! Oooh, and one of the girls there told us about their “Beautiful Opportunity” mailing list… apparently they email you about last minute deals (up to 40% off!). Click here if you want to register for it. And if you’ve never been in before, I found this coupon on their website where you can get $10 off a $35 purchase.

Eco-Fabulous Fashion Show

I’m so super excited for our “Eco-Fabulous Fashion Show” event coming up March 25! We did a go green event last year, and it was great. But this year, we’re taking it to a whole new, even more amazing, level.

Last year, we had some designs that DAAP students made on display throughout the venue. It was neat to look at them, but none of them could really be worn. But this year, the DAAP students are making eco-fab designs that are going to be worn on the runway! The outfits will be made out of repurposed household items and/or eco-friendly products. Think couture gown out of dryer sheets whisking its way down the catwalk… yeah, amazing.

Serket Jewelry is sponsoring the fashion show portion of the event, and is designing all the jewelry for the models. I interviewed her in this previous blog. I just love how innovative Lyn (owner/designer for Serket) is, so I’m sure she’ll have incredible designs and concepts for you to enjoy at this show. I’ll have a sneak peek here of some of her designs soon on the blog after Lyn and my fashion show intern go and check out the DAAP designs.

Also, this year, Lexus has a brand new hybrid it’ll be featuring. AND vitaminwater zero just came on board as the presenting sponsor, so you know there will be great swag!

I hope you can make it! Here are all the details…
