new beauty trends

Monday, May 10th, 2010

When I started spray tanning in NYC back in 2002, many people had never even heard about the service. Eight years can make a big difference. Last year the World Health Organization and the American Cancer Society said that regular tanning beds definitely cause cancer (previously they were “suspected” of causing cancer). I would say that now getting an airbrush or spray tan has now become as much a regular beauty treatment as getting a pedicure and our average client comes in once a week.

 

The thing I love at Brazil Bronze is that we always have an atmosphere of playing with whatever is the newest or most fun in beauty. Nothing could have prepared me for this years’ huge trend for Vajazzling. Ironically when we first started spraying from the very beginning we did Swarovski decals – to me it was just a pretty, sexy thing that went well with the spray tan. Then this year Jennifer Love-Hewitt sent the trend out of the ball park. Many new clients are coming to us specifically for this service. Basically you come in and get a bikini wax – then you pick out a gorgeous crystal design and it is applied in the bikini area and lasts around a week. We also have crystals for other areas of the body such as the lower back or ankles.

What is the demographic for vajazzling? Everyone. It never ceases to surprise me who shows up for what. It seems to me the kind of person who comes for vajazzling is someone playful, with a sense of humour – generally someone planning a cute surprise for a boyfriend or husband – there is generally an atmosphere of excited conspiracy and anticipation. It is not a bunch of porn stars showing up – just regular girls and ladies.

The other huge thing for summer is lashes. We do lots of different kinds – semi permanents that last one or two weeks – and full on glamour length mink lashes that last till your lash grows out its cycle. You can pay $80 for lashes or $400 for lashes – and they all look so pretty and natural. To me lashes are the quickest pick me up.

Waxing is huge this year – and we have gone over board experimenting with pain free sugars and waxes – and amazing technicians whose highest priority is giving the client a comfortable and pleasant experience with great results.

So next time you come to BBGB – don’t be shy – ask about our new stuff and go home extra pretty!

Mink lashes coming soon….

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

This whole vajazzeling adventure continues to get more fun. It’s that time of the year, everyone is getting ready for summer – trying on swimsuits, thinking about shovelling their divine selves into shorts (with the aid of a greased shoe horn.) So, one of my fun projects for last week was interviewing bikini waxers. (I also went to Costa Rica last week – but that has little to do with bikini waxing – but more on that later.) Let me tell you it is not the most fun thing interviewing bikini waxers – I mean the only really sure way to tell if someone is good is to surrender to a treatment – which I was NOT about to do – so you are trying to ask leading questions to read between the lines to find out if they have humane waxing methods….. Most of the people who applied seemed to be young men with resumes showing not so relevant experience in the area of grocery bagging. Yikes.

Lucky for me I found a couple of adorable girls with tons of experience – and while I was at it I found a crazy amazing lash girl. Her specialty – hold on to your horses – is real mink eyelash extensions. Of course I was in a lather when I heard about this – I am totally obsessed with lashes – every night I bathe my lashes in Li Lash which I bought on the internet and will probably make my eyeballs implode – but I do have gorgeous lashes – and whenever I have a special party or vacation my favourite treatment in the whole world is lash extension – because they make you look really pretty even if you wear no make-up – I mean, at night you could get up and go and pee and honestly shock yourself with your own loveliness. Hell – who is used to looking good in the middle of the night?

So – I rigorously interviewed the girl about the mink lashes – they are very soft and glossy compared to the crapola you might buy in Duane Reade. They come in every length and are bonded with surgical glue onto your own lashes. I did not waste a second to have the lovely lady come in for a demo – and I was not disappointed. These lashes are totally luscious – completely natural – but like nothing found in nature – incredible, gorgeous, delectable. So – pretty soon – probably starting next week, Mink lashes are going to be on the menu. In fact we are building a whole new room in Brazil Bronze that will be a temple devoted to mink lashes and vajazelling.

Costa rica was super fun. I went to a ballroom dancing competition. It was kind of crazy as there were huge electrical storms and the lights and electricity kept going out – it was like dancing in some Scooby-Do haunted house. I was just about the only person in the competition – so I won a lot of prizes. But I did get to take a side trip to visit a volcano with all these amazing natural hot springs – and see a little bit of the jungle – it was totally gorgeous and I am definitely going to go back and see the country properly.

have you been vajazzeled yet?

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

So gorgeous in NYC this week. The sun is shining, today the temps are supposed to hit 80 degrees – time to fish out the summer clothes. And what is summer in NYC without a new hot trend? 

Our new trend is not that new – it’s actually something that we have been doing since we opened our doors in 2002 – but suddenly this year it has gone through the roof. What is it, what is it….. you ask? Well, we used to think that we were just embellishing a tan by delicately decorating somewhere around the bikini line with a sprinkling of sawarovski crystals. Last week one of my clients called me and said ” you know Sally, in LA that is called getting Vajazzeled.”  Who knew?

As soon as I heard that the first thought that ran through my head was that the word vajazzle is technically wrong on so many level. I mean you are not actually bedazzling the vagina. As my good friend Mama Gena will tell you the vagina, technically is up inside you – you would need a really arts and crafts minded gynacologist wearing a miners lamp if you wanted to get any crystals up there – and there are so many reasons why that would not be practical, comfortable or sanitary. The area that is actually being adorned is actually the area in the vicinity of the bikini.

Why are women interested in vajazzeling ( or as I prefer to say ‘Vijazzeling” – bedazzling in the vicinity)? Well, of course there are those who will just try anything new – but for most people they do it because it looks sexy and cute.

What is the protocol for coming in and getting vajazzeled? Well go get a bikini wax or have a whip around with the lady shave first. Then you come on in and pick out a crystal design – we apply it and then spray your desired tan over it. Adorable, summery and the perfect way to celebrate the divine feminine that abides within you. Don’t be shy – it’s not that scarey.
