Spring has officially arrived and the warm weather and cute summery clothes reminds me that it is also time to do something about my feet. They’ve spent the winter hibernating in boots, and I want them to be smooth, soft, and sandal ready.
Lucky for me, Heel To Toe is ready to launch some amazing new products to help me whip my feet into shape! Here’s the inside scoop of the new products:
Pedicure Salts – Soak your troubles away! Pedicure salts easily dissolve in warm water to soothe tired feet. Three great scents provide awesome aromatherapy while you relax – Peppermint, Green Tea Lemongrass, or Lavender.
Warming Foot Scrub – This scrub gives a gentle warming sensation as it exfoliates away dry skin.
Argan Heel & Foot Treatment – This uses the power of Argan oil to moisturize rough feet and heels. This formula absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave an oily residue.
Cooling Foot Powder – The convenient aerosol formula keeps feet dry throughout the day, along with an immediate cooling sensation. Perfect for warm weather days when feet tend to feel the heat!
Last spring we talked about how matte was a new, popular look in lipsticks. Well a year later and it looks like matte just seems to keep growing in popularity.
Have you embraced this trend? I’m personally loving it because I feel like I can get away with crazier shades when they’re matte. Something about wild colors when they’re glossy scream “LOOK AT MY LIPS RIGHT NOW.”
On the flipside, the slightly “dry” look of a matte lip can turn some off, so I can see why not everyone loves it.
What about you? Where do you stand? Is the matte lip look a yes or no?

Is there anything more relaxing than a pedicure? I love going to the spa and sinking into the massage chair, while someone pampers my feet. But, to me, a pedicure is a once in awhile indulgence. I only get them a few times a year and paint my own toes the rest of the time. I even have a cute Heel to Toe Inflatable Pedicure Bath that I use at home to soak while watching my favorite shows. It’s not the same but it keeps me happy between appointments.
I do, however, have some friends who go every month without fail to get pedicures. To them, it’s a necessary part of their beauty routine, like getting their roots touched up or a trim.
What about you? How often do you get pedicures? Are they a special treat or something that is part of your normal beauty maintenance?

Once again, the Sally Beauty Supply Best Tressed® annual survey names top celebrity styles – and those that fell short of fabulous.
2012 proved beards and poofs were not favorite styles, with the cast of Duck Dynasty and Snooki both taking home Worst Hairstyle honors. For the second year in a row, voters agreed that royal hair ruled, and bestowed upon Kate Middleton the title of Best Female Hairstyle. Brad Pitt came out on top with the Best Male Hair, but not all voters approved of his current look. He also placed second for the worst.

Well color me surprised! Blue eye shadow is trendy again.
It was all over runways for Spring 2013, but I’ve yet to work up the nerve to try it. It reminds me a little too much of the 80s and this not-always-so-nice girl in high school who wore THICK layers of blue eye shadow, topped off with blue eyeliner. Cute, right?
That said, I can see the appeal of this modern interpretation. It looks surprisingly fresh and fun when done right. I also love how it makes eyes POP!
What about you? Would you bring back the blue? Did you never leave it? Please take a moment to vote and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
What it does is enhance each strand of hair with clear shine, adding a little body and loads of luster to any natural hair color. You can also mix Demi Clear with any other Ion Demi shade to brighten or add warmer tones to your natural shade. And, for anyone who does use hair color, Demi Clear helps to prevent fading as it boosts shine.
Any way you use it, Ion Color Brilliance Demi is CLEAR-LY is the perfect pre-holiday hair treatment!

Give us a fun fact about yourself.
When I was 17, I was in the Miss South Carolina Teen Pageant. It was an inspiring experience being surrounded by so many self-motivated young women.
What is your favorite product available at Sally Beauty?
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque – I love it! I instantly feel it cleaning dirt and oil from my pores. I use it twice a week, and every time I wash it off, my face feels refreshed and squeaky clean.
After watching several tutorials and techniques on YouTube, I still have trouble getting a nice, even curl and the end results are always catastrophic.
Super sleek hairstyles have always been my favorite way to style my hair, but now that curly and wavy styles are in vogue, I really like the idea of being able to get a wavy look every once in a while without the commitment of buying a curling tool that I won’t use very often.
So I recently tried the new Tool Science Styler HD which features extended plates with curved edges that make the curling and waving process much easier. It has more surface contact and delivers a more defined wave effect than what you can get with a regular straightening iron (especially for those who cannot master the curling techniques like myself).
Plus it does not pull on my hair when gliding down on an angle like a regular iron with flat plates.
I have to say that this tool is amazing and now I can have the best of both worlds – straight and curly whenever I want.
The red t-shirts worn by Sally Beauty Holdings employees seemed to be everywhere at the second annual Susan G. Komen North Texas Denton Race for the Cure held at South Lakes Park in Denton, TX on Saturday, September 29. It was a grey, drizzly morning, but the over 200 members of Team Sally were “in the Pink “ and nothing could dampen the spirits of our team. Sally Beauty Holdings, as the presenting sponsor for Komen North Texas 5K Walk/Run, gave away 2,500 red backpacks with beauty samples from both Sally Beauty and CosmoProf stores. Many attendees commented how thrilled they were to get our sample bag again. We had 135 participants in the 5K Walk/Run and 75 volunteers who assisted on the race course and at check-in, the largest team at the race. We were also proud that we won the t-shirt design contest!
But most importantly, the race was a financial win for the North Texas affiliate of Susan Komen as it has raised $140,000 to date. This money will fund the important work of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which since its inception has invested almost $2 billion in its promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
