Skincare is King

Your skin reflects your health. The truth is, you can make a substantial investment in pricey foundations, concealers, mascaras, eye shadows and lipstick, but nothing can hide bad skin. The good news is skin care can be simple. Caring for facial skin doesn't need to be a 10-step process, and you don't have to spend a ton of money on dozens of products. Essentially, skin care involves 4 basic steps:

Closed Today (June 30th) - No Power

Our appologies to all of our clients who were inconvenienced because we could not open today. A powerful wind and thunderstorm came through the Crozet area on it's way toward the Chesapeake Bay and took out the power around us for miles. Needless to say we were not able to open today. Melissa will be calling all of you that had appointments today to get you rescheduled just as quickly as we can.

Art in Heels

We had the privilege of doing the hair and makeup for last weeks Art in Heels event that benefited the UVA Art Museum and WHTJ-PBS. We worked with 14 models, some who were reigning beauty pageant winners (Miss Teen United States, Miss United States, Ms. United States, Miss District of Columbia, and so on) and the remaining girls were agency models. We set up a staging area in the Omni hotel at 1pm and then moved to behind the stage in the Arena for the actual runway show. A real challenge was the final wedding sequence where we had to drench the first model and slowly, by degrees, wet the other models until the final ones were dry with huge hair!

Safe and Good for All!

I had a client who had a severe response to our haircolor, even though I am using a no ammonia, flower based color line that is designed to Heal, Seal and Protect. (Lanza) So, since I want to be a salon that has REAL answers for people and my client was even willing to endure discomfort I began the quest to find a color product that would work for her with NO irritation. After much searching and reading I discovered Organic Color Systems, out of England. I ordered some color from their Florida distributors and we did a skin test on my client. Just the slightest redness, NO stinging or burning. We colored her hair and here is her response. "After searching many years for a salon that truly listens and cares about its clients, I have found Face Value Salon. I absolutely cannot praise Lucinda Riley (Face Value Salon owner extraordinaire) highly enough. Much to my dismay, I developed a reaction to hair color and was quite distraught that my highlighting and color days were over but out of her concern to help me, Lucinda did extensive research, talked to numerous cosmetic and color experts and found a line of hair products with no PPD (chemical linked to mild/severe skin reactions from hair color)! We proceeded carefully, Lucinda did sample testing on my skin to make sure I would have no reaction.
