Mama Needs A Makeover (and a Martini). And Enter to Win A Makeover Package from Ihloff Salon and Day Spa!

So my 7 year-old Nicholas drew a picture of us the other day.  I commented on how I liked the brown hat he drew on my head.

“That’s not a hat mommy,that’s your hair!   The top half  is brown, and the bottom part is yellow!”

Wow.  Nothing like a little reality check from a first grader.

I don’t know about the rest of ya’ll, but if I can get at least one body part clean in a day (hair washing and leg shaving is a bonus) – it’s a red banner day in my book.

Needless to say – keeping up with hair, makeup and other luxuries such as a razor or nail polish – isn’t on my radar.

Until now.

So I enlisted the help of my dear friends at the amazing Ihloff Salon and Day Spa in Tulsa.  They were only too excited to help a sister out.  (Until Randi saw my roots.  I don’t think she really believed I was in dire straits until then).

Randi is amazing. She’s lightening my hair and adding some vertical layers to give my hair volume and make it easier to style.

Randi says the trend in hair this spring is longer layers and a more “bohemian” look than the polished looks of last year.  The look is super easy – she just used a large barrel curling iron and slightly curled my hair in big chunks.  It took five minutes.

I now have a fresh updated look for spring – YAY! And it’s dummy proof for moms like me.   So I want to share my good fortune.

Brandi’s teaching me some easy tips for makeup. I love the new spring colors!

According to Brandi from Ihloff, makeup trends are keeping your look natural, with using a pop of color either on lips or eyes.  For daytime, she’s giving me a day smoky eye, using neutral colors, but a teal eyeshadow as an eyeliner which makes eyes pop.  For nighttime, she suggests a bright lip – coral is the big color this spring.

Ihloff is donating a haircut/style AND a make-up application (plus the spring line of Aveda makeup!).  This is valued at over $300 – and it includes their newest product – Aveda Lash Abundance Boosting Serum which gives you thicker, fuller, longer-looking lashes in just 8 weeks-and is gentle enough for everyday use.

You can watch these awesome ladies in action right here on my Mommy Moment on Fox23 this morning.

All you have to do to enter is comment on my blog and we’ll pick a winner on Monday, March 5th!

I had to celebrate my look with a Girls Night Out of course….

And next time my son draws my hair like that…he’s grounded.
