Earlier this year our students got to help us with a workshop for young professionals at the Mid America Technology Center. They had a wonderful time helping to inspire our younger generation with insight into what it is like being a student of cosmetology. We have an amazing new group of students who are so happy and cheerful, and love working with both young and old. While attending the workshop our students got an opportunity to network with several other groups and organizations from Paul’s Valley, and Garvin County.
We were honored when they asked us to be a part of a fun video they put together to help to celebrate Paul’s Valley. Here’s the video- We hope you enjoy it and see just a few of the reasons we all think Paul’s Valley is such a “Happy” place! Enjoy. – Penny and the Girls

Summer is a wonderful time but the elements that we enjoy so much can be very hard on our skin.
If your skin is dull and lackluster, dry and parched, then you could benefit from a facial. We offer several types of facials at the academy, but one of my favorites is the European Facial.
We will start with a deep brush cleanse or micro-derm treatment to remove dry skin that is keeping your beautiful new skin from showing. Then we will continue with a vacuum treatment to stimulate collagen production. Next we will re-balance the skin’s pH and follow with a deep massage and moisturizing treatment. Hydration is the key to a healthier, more vibrate complexion.
The European Facial is great for all types of skin, and anyone will benefit from the stimulation and increased circulation to enhance your skin’s own natural beauty.
Call to book an appointment today – 405-238-3426 and we will help you turn back the signs of age and give you a more youthful appearance.

CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2014
Didn’t these Designers do a fabulous job on these fashions?
Longer jackets, mixtures of beaded fabric, sparkle, and simplistic hair styles. Center parts are back, OH MY!!!!!!!!!
Fem looks are always hot for Spring. Soft fabric flow like a gentle Spring Breeze.
Ombre’ color fabrics are still in.
Short or long dresses and skirts, you choose, beautiful bead work with an eye for detail. So much fun for Prom and Weddings.
Retro Glam with beautiful shades of nude and black for Formal Affairs. Wow!!! Don’t you just love the pops of color for Spring 2014? Love the soft flowing fabrics with fun asymmetrical accents for casual wear. Love these fun styles!
Ladies, remember, the hair styles will mimic the fashion. When you wear your soft sheer blouse or skirt, hair should flow, be soft and shiny. Stronger, stiffer fabrics, usually will need a stronger look such as a strong chignon. It will be fun this prom season to design hairstyles to go with the formal wear that is out there this season.
Hope you enjoyed this article. Have the best day ever! Penny
