Lauren Opens Moondust Salon

Meet Lauren in her brand new Moondust Salon which is housed in Sola Salon Studios on Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh. There’s parking behind the building, you enter from Atlantic Avenue.

Today was opening day. I dodged a few Spring raindrops to document her new endeavor.

Lauren says

“I’ve been in the industry for 4 years. My passions are hair coloring and lightening. I always love challenges. The space is inspired by the movie Practical Magic and Stevie Nicks . I wanted to make a space where people felt comfortable, included, and heard. That’s why I do client applications where I can know hair goals, allergies, social anxiety needs, music/movie preference, and sensory needs.”

“I’m also cruelty free, non-gendered prices, and attempting to be eco friendly like offering a recycling program through my product Amika, to keep plastic waste out of the oceans and landfills.”

Phone number: Call or text 412.436.3446.

Early Morning Striped Light, Then and Now

I’m sleeping in Maura’s bed this week, while I’m in Ohio, but she came in to dress for school this morning.

As she stood in front of the mirror, the early morning light came in through the blinds.

I remembered.

Somewhere on the blog,a few years ago, I’d captured a shot of Maura with the same striped light on her hair. At least I thought it was the same light.

Her bedroom has eastern exposure.

So I went and searched and found it. September 2013 see the second photo.

The stripes are thin white light in 2013.

The blinds must have been almost closed completely.

Style

New York City street shot from when I visited my sister last June.  

I was photographing people engaged with their technology-  they weren’t paying any attention to me or my camera   I think this woman was trying to get into the shade a bit to see her phone screen, reduce the glare.

 

Thoughts on style…………decorating, home, fashion, hair, writing-

What’s in style these days?

Have you ever been out of style?  

Did you ever cramp anyone’s style?

Do you know anyone whose style is stuck in another decade?        or maybe their style is making a comeback?

Who decides what’s in style or out of style?

What is  your style?
