On Trend Spring 2011-- Gray and Tangerine

21 March 2011
I am writing this post at 12:45 am because I spent the day doing makeup for the largest international hair and cosmetic trade show event here in Bologna called Cosmoprof. I met some amazing stylists from all over Europe, striking Italian models and connected with the Founder/President of the largest network for hairstylists, Behind-the-Chair, Mary Rector-Gable and had an all around blast!  When I receive the, professional, photos I will post them here. I am so excited because I will get my first international magazine credit! yay! :D

Yesterday I did another fabulous shoot with friend and muse and adopted big brother Pasquale Salerno in Florence at this fabulous Palazzo. The place is amazingly beautiful and the next time I return to Italy I am living in Florence. It is definitely my city. When I feel down in the dumps because things are not working out the way I thought they would, I go to Florence and my spirits are instantly lifted. So check out the site. And when those photos are ready I will also post them here. Well, maybe.. :D

Anyways, enough of that squeamish sugaryness I call life. Today I bring to you, another fabulous spring trend. Tangerine and gray; both colors are HUGE!!! And they are fabulous. Feel free to throw in some bordeaux while you are at it. Like I said, do not be shy to wear color. It is the time to do it. Here is a board I put together, just for you fabulous readers. Tomorrow I need to write a post on how to get perfect eyebrows which will be posted on Beyond Black and White at the end of the week.
