Mane Attraction Salon has joined forces with RESCUE, a local nonprofit animal rescue organization, to host their 13th Annual Beauty to the RESCUE on March 3, 2013.

For a minimum donation ($30-$50 for haircuts, $10 for Deep Conditioning Masque, $20 for Blow Dry Style and $20 for Makeup Applications), anyone can partake in a day of personal pampering – all while raising funds to support RESCUE in its fight against pet euthanasia.

Beauty to the RESCUEWhile human participants are beautifying themselves, they can pamper their pooches with an on-site mobile dog groomer as well as look into their pet’s past or future with an on-site pet psychic. Guests will also enjoy food and beverages, along with kid-friendly activities and live entertainment by the hip local bands Elvis Before Noon and Del Rey.

Dr. Grey Stafford from the Wildlife World Zoo will also be attending with his dog Venti to discuss reward-based dog training.

Enjoy brunch at Central Bistro, located next door to Mane Attraction. They will be donating a portion of their Sunday brunch sales to benefit RESCUE. Other vendors will include Millie’s Caramels, pet artist Chela Mischke, pieces by The Bottle Artist, a local artist who repurposes recycled wine bottles into home décor, Carol Cotton Design, and much more.

“We have a special place in our hearts for the pets RESCUE helps,” says Beate Ong, who owns and operates Mane Attraction with husband and fellow stylist Kendal Ong. One of the Ong’s pooches, Einstein, was a healthy, house-trained one-year-old when Kendall and Beate adopted him from RESCUE. “Healthy animals are being euthanized because they are not adopted and placed in loving homes. The real beneficiaries of this event will be the huggable animals that are adopted at this outstanding and important event.”

4 tips treating dry, winter hair

4 Tips to Treating Dry, Winter Hair

Four tips to treating dry, winter hair

trim ends

1. Trim those ends

The cold air of winter, lack of humidity and central heating causes hair to dry out and become brittle. The drier the hair, the more susceptible it is to splitting and breaking. You can get rid of those frizzy ends with a healthy trim. Better yet, it’s a new season, and that is a good reason to change up your hairstyle.

Wella Illumina Color

2. Get a glossing treatment

Winter hair can be dull and lack shine. Product and mineral buildup can take the luster out of hair. To turn the lights back on, so to speak, get a glossing treatment. My favorite is the Illumina Gloss. It is the latest technological innovation from the German color line Wella. Minerals are encapsulated on the hair shaft and then rinsed off. Using Illumina Gloss, you can enhance your color, or just add some shine.


Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Treatment Masque

3. Add a moisturizing, deep conditioner

Hair’s winter blues often come from using the wrong shampoo and conditioner. In the winter, it is always a good idea to step up your moisturizing program. If you are not moisturizing, and your hair is noticeably drier, jump-start your way to healthier hair with a deep conditioner. Aveda’s Dry Remedy Moisturizing Treatment Masque instantly improves dry hair up to 63 percent.

Bumble and Bumble Styling Balm

4. Protect Your Hair

The sun and hot styling tools wreak havoc on all hair types. Bumble and Bumble’s Styling Balm provides UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays. It seals the hair’s cuticle, which keeps it safe from the heat of blow dryers and irons. If you color your hair, the Styling Balm’s nourishing formula minimizes fading, keeps tones true and adds shine.

Fall Fashion Shoot Behind the Scenes

Behind The Scenes: Fall Fashion Photo Shoot [PHOTOS]

Herve Leger, RED Valentino, Michael Kors and more — with such fabulous clothing, shoes and accessories from both Nordstrom and Astor & Black, Scottsdale Living teamed up with a fantastic group of people last Thursday, August 23, and camped out for the day at Talking Stick Resort’s Orange Sky for its Fall 2012 issue’s fall fashion photo shoot.

And the nearly two-month process paid off. The models from JANI Model Management, Michael, Trisha, Sheniece, Nemi, Michael and Nick, looked incredible in their respective outfits; the hairstylist and makeup artist, Randee Miller and Joanna Avillar for Mane Attraction Salon, respectively, stunningly transformed the models; Katie McEndoo of Astor & Black provided and styled the men into a seemingly Mad Men-inspired look; and Kira Brown complemented the dresses with fitting shoes and accessories — all from Nordstrom at Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Not to mention the location was a beautiful backdrop to it all. The location, Orange Sky, couldn’t have been more perfect with its sleek, chic lounges and private dining areas; and let’s not forget about that view from its outdoor patio — especially during sunset.

Scottsdale Living would like to thank the team, including the photographers (Mike Mertes Cory Bergquist and Glory Shim) who captured the jaw-dropping images that will grace the pages of Scottsdale Living’s Fall 2012 issue.

Keep an eye out for it in October. We’re sure it will be difficult to miss on the stands at AJ’s and Bashas’ throughout the North Scottsdale and Paradise Valley area.

In the meantime, check out more of these behind-the-scenes photos of our fall fashion shoot on our Facebook:
