Trending Now: Matte Lips

Posted 6:27 PM by



We've all been there, stuck in a style-rut. Routine gets the best of us and we find ourselves waking up for work each morning, applying the same makeup products, in the same order and wondering why we feel dull and drab. We want to switch up our look, but not in a complete makeover sort of way. And we certainly don't want to break the bank in the process. Now a mini-makeover is easier than ever with this fall trend we're already excited for: matte lips.

BOLD, matte lips were a stand-out trend at the summer 2013 shows, with Alexander Wang, Prada, and Burberry all opting for bright, velvety shades that popped amidst otherwise pared-back beauty looks.

It's understandable that it might be hard to let go of your trusted lip gloss, after all, the lip trend for the past few years has been glossy or bust; but this look is surprisingly versatile, far from boring and can work on every skin tone. Perfect for day or night, you can go matte with any hue.

Head over to GENEVA to check out Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks in Debalicious, Vixen, and Barely Nude....and remember all Youngblood lip products are $3.00 off in August!

Summer Hair Care

Posted 5:18 PM by

protect & care for your summer hair

Picture it: summer in fabulous Indiana. It’s hot and the sun is shining down on all the little peeps frolicking at the pool or jogging along the Pennsy trail with their chocolate labs. Summer is here to stay and you’re soaking up all the rays you can. Life is good.


But when you get home after a long day of warm-weather antics, you look in the mirror and see your beautiful new summer ombre hair color looks washed out and dull. You scream at your reflection and then you pick up the phone and call Geneva Hair Studio (#2 on your speed dial I’m sure) and make an emergency appointment to revive your strands.


Don’t let this be you! I have for you, because I am sooo kind, a way to avoid this heartache.


Thanks to Davines’ Glorifying line (our super awesome Italian hair color/care line), which provides UV protection, fights free radicals and oxidation, and moisturizes, there is a solution to your summertime blues:


  • Add Glorifying Elixir ($20) to your next color service. It’s a super powered serum that when mixed in with your color, helps reduce color fading and is packed with antioxidants.

  • Upgrade your shampoo to the Glorifying Shimmering Shampoo ($5). Polyphenols protect from UV rays and wheat proteins add a protective  barrier to the hair.

  • Seal in color with Glorifying Color Locking post color mousse ($15).This is a great product for anyone (even us pale, sun phobic people) who wants to increase the longevity of their color.

  • Hydrate and block free radicals with the Glorifying Anti-Age Shimmering Pak ($15). Your sun dried tresses will thank you.

  • Glorifying Color Protective Leave-In ($5) will add moisture and protection. This lightweight conditioner blocks solar radiation and leaves hair silky and soft.

  • Add high shine and UV protection with Glorifying Shimmering Silkening Serum ($10). It only takes a couple drops to have sassy, glossy ‘do.


So when it comes to sun protection, we’ve got you covered! Don’t forget to do your part and wear a hat or scarf for added protection when outdoors and ALWAYS wear sunscreen to protect your biggest organ: your skin!


“But Holly!” you say, “After a day at the pool my hair feels like straw and I can’t even get a comb through it!” Well, my friend, have I got a product for you! Davines’ Naturaltech line has a whole family devoted to detoxifying your hair!


  • Detoxifying Mud ($30) is this amazing clay mask for your hair that actually sucks out all the impurities such as chlorine from your hair and leaves your hair manageable and healthy. Ge this treatment as often as needed after prolonged chlorine exposure.


All of these great products will keep you stress free and your hair summer ready are available in salon and can be customized for your specific needs.  


Just remember: protect your hair!
