Blink of a Smoky Eye

Jane Iredale has released two new amazing products.

– Blink in a Smoky Eye Kit – Its a beautifully created kit with 5 eye shadow colors and 3 contouring colors to create an endless amount of day or night time smoky eyes. Also included is an instruction booklet on how to create the perfect smoky eye.

– Forever Red Just Kissed Cheek and Lip Stain – Before they released the Forever Red, there was only Forever Peach, which was a huge hit! There are many great things about these Just Kissed Cheek and Lip stain! They double for a blush stain which will last all day. Also, the color will change or adjust according to the chemistry in your skin, so it doesn’t look the same on every person. It adjusts to your skin tone to make sure that the color pops with your skin!

Stop by the salon to pick up one or both products while they’re still here!

*Supplies are limited.


Here’s a great video tutorial from their you-tube channel.


Sweater weather is here!

Who doesn’t love fall; all the beautiful colors, the cooler weather and getting to snuggle in front of a cozy fire! Its about that time that everyone starts turning off their A/C and turning on their heat. It’s also the season that your skin and hair become a little sad with lack of moisture.

Have you noticed that your scratching at your scalp a little more? Or that your skin seems to scream it needs more lotion? This is the most important time to stock up on some great hydrating products to keep your skin and hair loving you.

Eufora’s Beautifying Elixirs are just what your needing!



Eufora created the Beautifying Elixirs to help cure damaged hair but its also great to keep you hair moisturized. Check out the science behind your new life/hair saver on their website.

You’ll thank us once your purchase you first Beautifying Elixir product!

Caring for your False Eyelash

Not many people wear false eyelashes daily. Most of them prefer to wear them in special occasions, and more often than not they end up in the bin after one use.

The reason? We don’t always know how to properly clean them. It ends up in a tangled mess with glue, mascara and leftover eyeliner on it and it’s just easier to toss them.

Well, we found this great tutorial by The Beauty Broadcast on how to care for your false lashes and we wanted to share it with you.

We hope this is not only informative, but we hope you can benefit from it! We know we will be reusing our lashes from  now on (on ourselves – you’re still getting a brand new pair when you come in for your makeup visit!)



Spa Noa Grand Reopening!

Hi everybody! It’s such an exciting day for us!

Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment

Hi, everyone!

The hair industry has come a long way with products and treatments, and we get closer to safer treatments every day. One of them is the Keratin Treatment.

At first it was a blessing, calming down the frizz and smoothing your hair. Most clients didn’t even complain too much about the smell, because results were amazing. Unfortunately, it was later noted that most of them contained higher levels of formaldehyde than the FDA deemed safe.

Cezanne Perfect Finish is the latest of treatments to shy away from this substance. It uses sodium sulfite, which is a food-grade preservative as a smoothing agent, instead.

It’s a great new system, and it’s priced the same as the normal treatment. It’s good for the hair and you won’t get the watery eyes and fumes of the previous treatments.

This new system is highlighted on Doctor Oz’s Magazine, on the Health + Happiness section of the upcoming edition, so don’t forget to check it out! And we are excited to share that we are now offering the Cezanne Smoothing Treatment at Brush Strokes, as well as some of their hair products! So call us to book your service and experience a safer option for you Keratin!
