I’m recovered and building more strength daily post hand injury from the end of last year. All in all, it feels good to be in the swing of things.⠀ ⠀ January + February BOOKINGS ARE OPEN WITH ME at Www.KlouiseSalon.com.⠀⠀ *Selecting Styling services are mandatory when booking to accommodate efficient timing*⠀
It’s been officially a week since being out of work and it ain’t due to Auntie Rona, but from a fractured finger on my right hand. I have a splint around my pinky and ring finger. I’m not sure why it extends past my wrist but it’s kinda annoying lol! No shampooing, head massages, or holding styling tools for the time being and my current clients have been notified by K. Louise Boutique Salon of my temporary absence. Depending on the salon’s availability some clients have been moved over to our Senior Stylist @KellyBeeStyles who will keep ya on point til then (thanks Kellz)!
This is a little reminder, for myself especially, of the importance of making intentional lifestyle changes. Once you get to the age where you can make your own food choices, we’re told about a balanced diet and why we need to stick to healthier foods. Some of us maybe listen. But honestly you don’t really pay attention to important stuff like that until AFTER college or late twenties even. Post pandemic shut down has shown me why I truly need to fuel my body with the proper nutrients because I’ve gained weigh, I feel more sluggish and my skin has been doing a bunch of weird stuff as a result of it. Having the right attitude when it comes to health, nutrition, and well being ensures everyone can fully function in a happy manner plus service the ones we love around us.
Come and support the CROWN Act on Tuesday, October 13th. This 3 part virtual experience will be hosted by Personal Wardrobe Stylist Reagan Campbell from C Suite Styling and myself. At 6PM we will start off with a networking event where you can connect with CROWN Act supporters around the world! After the networking event we will break up into 2 separate workshops. One will focus on the types of discriminations minorities are likely to encounter while working in corporate America. The second workshop will focus on partnering self-expression within your brand story. Participants will be able to learn more about the speakers and choose which workshop they would like to attend during the ticket check out process. We will then wrap up the entire event with a virtual fashion show featuring local Philadelphia/New Jersey businesses. Both Reagan and I will showcase our styling skills in order to help naturals learn how to confidently accentuate their CROWN in the office.
Redness, itchiness, blotchy dark marks are all of the least favorite things you want to associate with your skin. The skin can be super sensitive to certain elements, which is why breakouts can occur, irritation, or a number of other issues. However, there are ways you can protect the skin to ensure it stays healthy, pliable, and smooth. Here a few things to think about, or you can incorporate into your routine today.

Your senses are an essential part of you. They provide your brain with all of the information that you need from the world around you. They help you to make sense of your environment and keep you from danger.
Every day your eyes, ears, taste buds, nose, and skin will take in tens of thousands of pieces of information and send countless signals to your brain. You won’t even notice them doing this much of the time, they do it so seamlessly well. Together your five senses work together to help you appreciate and identify people, places, food, weather, and so much more. Through your eyesight, you can enjoy looking at artwork or watching movies. With society relying heavily on technology for everyday use and convenience, the eyes can take a harsh beating when staring at bright screens about 80 percent of the time.

As Black people we are experiencing so much grief, anguish, anxiety, and hopelessness amongst other emotions that we don’t even have the words to describe how we feel.

Here is what you and I can do to help
