Continuing Education: Color Code I, Airbrush PRO Workshop, & America's Beauty Show

Posted 2:56 PM by


color code 1

Liz, Cara, & Allie attended a Davines color class at The Space this month, known as Color Code I, the class went over the basic knowledge that every stylist should have about the entire Davines color line.

The stylists who attended the class were able to participate in a hands-on training session with the Davines color line. They split off into groups and were able to experiment with formulating and applying color on live models.

Allie particularly enjoyed the opportunity to formulate and apply what she had observed in the class on a live model and see her own end results.

“I learned more details about contributing colors and the natural contributing color that is in the hair. Knowing that opened my eyes to what Davines colors come from and what their base colors begin at.” - Liz



airbrush PRO makeup workshop

Liz, Holly, and Amilee were in attendance for the GENEVA Airbrush PRO Makeup Workshop hosted by GENEVA Master Makeup Artist Ashley Renee Salazar in our studio this month. The workshop focused on airbrush makeup artistry techniques used to create the perfect look for any special occasion.

The workshop covered full application of foundation, contouring, blush application and more, leaving any client with a Hi-Def finish.

“Great! The hands on portion was really helpful – the dots and dashes on paper were a great warm-up for applying them on real people. Thanks Ashley!”

"The class was very helpful in learning new airbrush techniques. The trigger control tips were great in learning how to support and control the air brush gun.”


america's beauty show: chicago

The entire GENEVA team headed to the Windy City to attend America's Beauty Show. 

The annual trade show included multiple vendor booths, live haircutting & coloring demonstrations, as well as hands on classes over various techniques.

Holly's favorite look from the show was a light lavender cut with straight across bangs.  Her favorite moment of the show was sighting Tabatha Coffey and trying to say hello.  Holly also claims that she yelled "I'm taking over!"

Liz says “Attending the show was definitely inspiring. It is a very cool environment to learn, take classes, purchase awesome goodies, and get inspired! Standing back and observing all of the product lines and hair guru’s take stage was pretty awesome.”

To Die For: The Legend Classic Irvington Cafe

Posted 4:41 PM by

enjoy a night out at your favorite eastside cafe

I love visiting The Legend in Irvington. The hometown, home-cooked feel is so...homey! From the moment you enter through the front (or back) door, you feel very welcome. The symphony of clatter coming from the kitchen is remniscent of a childhood memory, and the food that follows is soulful and delicious.

The Legend first opened in 2003 and has been serving the eastside with pride since then. It is locally owned and operated by the Robertson family. The Robertson's opened their restaurant with the goal of establishing a relationship with the residents and patrons that will carry on throughout their lives. Once you eat at The Legend, you will always want to come back. I know that we at the salon will walk over there for lunch or dinner on a weekly basis.

The menu at The Legend isn't huge, but it holds many favorites and is very reasonably priced. They have new specials every day and homemade soups that will run out if you aren't quick enough. Food served is known as "comfort food" and it does just that: comforts. The sandwiches are good-sized and fresh, half of one will fill you up for lunch. The Pepperjack Macaroni and Cheese is technically a lunch-time side (it is only offered during the lunch hours); however, sometimes I treat it as a full meal and get a double order. It is that good. The entrees are an original take on old favorites, such as the Maybe-Your-Mom's Meatloaf. And the triple chip cookies are out of this world, incredible, and amazing (milk, dark and white chocolate combined?! Yummmmmm).

I highly recommend making a trip over to The Legend for a meal, whether it be with friends, family, co-workers, or getting some take-out for yourself. You will be pleased that you did. It truly is to die for.

Let's Talk Oscars

Posted 5:24 PM by

2013 Oscars

This year the GENEVA team decided to mix it up with the Oscars and live tweet the Red Carpet and Ceremony with Jaime and Vanessa both tweeting from @GenevaHair.  Overall we had a blast!  There were so many great, glam, looks.  As always, some looks were not so great, or glam.  Here's the highlights:



The Good


we saw alot of great looks on the Red Carpet this year but the looks that really stuck with us were:


Vintage Waves:

we tweeted: "Reese Witherspoon's vintage style waves are a win!"

we also cannot get over Jessica Chastain and her amazing color!

Jessica was Jaime's pick for best dressed


Crop Cuts:

is killing it with that short cut and long bang!"

we loved the hathaway-bang!

"Charlize Theron can do no wrong, her haircut is gorgeous!"



naomiwatts looking gorgeous in Armani. Love that dress! "

Naomi was Vanessa's best dressed pick

Stacey Kiebler, you nailed it!



The Not - So - Good



Salma Hayek:

" not a fan! Eye too heavy and dark to go along with the heavy, dark dress. Prefer to see golden and bronze tones on her eyes"

Salma was Jaime's pick for worst dressed



Jen Aniston:

"Looks like Jennifer Aniston forgot to style her hair for the " tweeted Jaime

"Jennifer Aniston - do something with your hair! It's the not brunch!"

our bottom line: Jen was too boring with her hair



Kristen Stewart:

"Kristen Stewart - you need a bold dress or a bold makeup look! who let you out without concealing that bruise on your arm! "

Kristen was Vanessa's pick for worst dressed, she played it too safe and her dress was ill fitting

we also retweeted

"Is Kristen Stewart fundamentally against brushes?"








Get The Look!


Recreate some of the Best Red Carpet looks! Youngblood Cosmetics has released step by step instructions, complete with product information.   GENEVA offers makeup lessons anytime also, the Studio Reward this month is 25% off any Youngblood Eyeshadow!
