I have mentioned before places where i’ve gotten my eyebrows done, or nails etc., but I’ve never formally posted in the blog. Being that the holidays are around the corner, it’s always good to get a leg up for the number events ahead! The following are people I recommend in Miami, Fl ( some may or may not travel to your area, I will specify if they do!) This is purely for external beauty, as in stylist, makeup artist specialist for your everyday look to formal events ( keep an eye out for top picks on doctors/ cosmetic specialist for that ” TUNE- UP or MAINTENANC”E we all seek).
Let me just take a second here to say… I HATE when people, excuse me, women are selfish, and don’t give their fellow lady friends a tip or two of where they get a beauty services from. Kudos to all those out there who love to share the wealth! Not only are you not trying to compete, but you are also giving your skilled, highly trained stylist BUSINESS!!!
Ok RANT OVER!
Let’s start with…

IGK Salon , at the S.L.S. South Beach Hotel, 1701 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (book with them in Miami, NYC, or LA, visit IGKHAIR.com)
I met Jenny at a crossroads, when I was cast in a musical as a male role and had to chop 18 inches off my head. Thanks to a bad ass photographer, I met Jenny back in 2012 and haven’t cut my hair with anyone since. I should mention, when she visits Miami SNAG AN APPOINTMENT STAT! Roller her on IG and Facebook, to get a heads up!
“Brows by Tilza”

Just reaching four years strong, I love how full yet defined my brows are. Tilza, was originally located at the Anastasia Brow bar in Nordstrom. She moved on up to her own personal space in The Biltmore, which gives this appointment that much more glamour! I haven’t looked elsewhere since!

Look at her skin, look at the smoothness of her face, it’s as though she could produce collagen and donate because of the flawless complexion she has… THAT SHOULD SELL YOU! Really though, she’s extremely skilled and a sweetheart! I love her Hydra Facials!
-FROM THE NECK DOWN-

Nail Tech/ Nail Art
Glam House, 8389 Bird Road
I actually followed Esther, from when she attended Paul Mitchell School. I noticed her Instagram shining with her recent manicure jobs! I’M DYING to do a coffin set, just once! lol
Waxing the Body
European Wax Center
6702 Bird Rd, Miami, FL 33155
Whatever you need taken off, they do! I braved the worst and did my bikini and legs for the first time, just before a weekend of beach summer fun. I also love the products. They have this serum to slow down the growth of the hair- AWESOME. One thing you gotta buy is their exfoliator! Ask them to put a little product on your hand. Ridiculous in a great way.
5600 Sunset Dr, Miami, FL 33143
I DON’T EVER use the tanning bed, but I will use their spray tan. I also will choose the darkest shade, even at my fairest days…. lol It’s pretty funny actually when you turn a different race (sorry was that not “P.C.”?), it’s pretty insane how well you get covered, and it last pretty long. TIP: Before I go in though, i make sure I shaved my legs, and exfoliated, but do wash off with a simple bar of soap that will not leave any residue. You want to go into this spray tan dry and free of product. After hours have passed, then hydrate the skin, and continue to do so to keep that tan nice and rich, and increase the longevity of it. I recommend doing it late in the day ( they are open till midnight and it take less than five minutes to apply), that way you are free of any activity, sweating, and can just go straight to bed or pop on some Netflix!
