Gloss & Toss Social Media Takeover with Michelle Swoons

Chicago Makeup Artist & Beauty Expert Michelle Swoons will be taking over our social media for a whole week.

Michelle Swoons Coffee Mug

Chicago makeup artist and beauty commentator Michelle Swoons will be sharing her take on beauty by taking over Gloss & Toss social media starting October 29, 2018.

She’s gorgeous!   She’s real!   She’s inquisitive!  She’s daring!    WE LOVE HER!!!!  Wait ’til you see our take on fall beauty.  Chicago makeup artist and beauty expert Michelle Swoons has over a decade of success (and creativity) as a makeup artist and we love her approach to makeup and beauty.  With Ms. Swoons there’s a time to be serious, and there’s a time to be playful.  You might just see her throw a tube of lipstick across the room.

She lives in Chicago and is a plus-size beauty expert and loves time with her friends. So she strives for that healthy outlook and life balance for women of all shapes and sizes and from all walks of live.  She likes to dish beauty, fashion, and healthy inspirations with a personal touch.

Says Swoons “I believe in a broader standard of beauty beyond the MATTEL® image that is so pervasive in today’s society.  Despite the number on the scale and regardless of industry standards, women can be beautiful and confident regardless of their size!”

AND THAT’S WHY WE LOVE HER.  Check out her video below.  We’ll see you soon.

Until then #beglossy  @glossandtoss    @michelleswoons

Pet Safety: The best time to walk your dog in summer

DOG WALK TIPS Gloss and TossSummer safety for walking your dog.

As a Leaping Bunny cruelty free hair care brand, we are committed to NO ANIMAL TESTING AND NO ANIMAL CRUELTY.

During hot weather conditions, it’s important to take certain precautions, make schedule adjustments, and stay informed about our pets’ safety. Many of our colleagues, friends and family have dogs and we know how much dogs love their walks. But dogs also love pleasing their owners. The unfortunate thing here, is that dogs will go on walks even if they’re uncomfortable out of loyalty and love!  As owners, we have to be aware (and kind) when it comes to harsh weather conditions be they hot or cold. So walk your dog in the early morning (most experts agree before 9am) or late at night (after 7pm ideally).  ABC 7 shared some asphalt temperature information as well.

Gloss & Toss Dry Shampoo makes a great hair styling option if you’re in a hurry or you need to extend the life of your current style temporarily. Buy online by visiting http://www.glossandtoss.net 

Many people spend time after their workout to style their hair.  To some this may mean a quick 5-minute session and to others it’s a dreaded 30 minutes or longer to blow-dry their hair.  And with summer coming up, that’s no fun.

The dressing rooms at the gym can be crowded especially during peak times.  If you forgot to bring your own hair dryer, there may be a lineup to use the ones provided by the gym facility.  To make matters worse you might just be wrapping up your visit when the dreaded “low on towels” announcement is made.  But never fear, beauty remedies are here.

Use the following tips and suggestions to SAVE TIME on your Continue reading

Healthy hair is a cinch with Gloss & Toss hair products available online by visiting GLOSSANDTOSS.NET

Gloss & Toss luxury hair productsIt’s Easter weekend and whether you’re wearing a classic hair style or bringing out your favorite Easter hat, there is definitely a sense of fashion and flair to this weekend.  From vibrant colors to softer pastels, many people have shopped (and dieted) for quite some time to ring in spring as this weekend brings about many reasons to celebrate.  But before you step out to that fabulous champagne brunch, Sunday morning service, Saturday dinner, or Friday evening celebration, here are a few tips to keep those tresses looking great and to lift those roots (and voices) high this weekend for many a joyous event.

Call ahead to visit your salon professional for a blow-out service.  This will save you time and energy as there’s so much going on this weekend as it is.

Don’t go for “dramatic” this weekend.  Let your attire or accessories do that for you.  It’s easier to change a top or a ring than it is to fix hair color gone wrong at the last minute.

Organize Your Beauty Products at Home

Here are some of the BEST ways to organize your beauty and personal products at home!

Did you know that keeping your beauty products and personal care items organized helps them stay clean and sanitary AND can extend the life of your products?

gloss and toss beauty organization tips

A simple drawer organizer can help keep products organized and prevent them from “wear and tear” when opening and closing drawers or cabinets. We found this drawer divider unit at IKEA and we love it!

Have you ever wondered how beauty professionals keep their tools and products so organized and at an arm’s reach?  Let’s face it! Hair stylists and beauty experts are busy, multi-tasking career professionals.  They manage a career and client roster that includes providing their professional services, coordinating color formulas or perhaps facial rituals, recommending products for clients to use at home, managing salon or spa inventory, client follow up and care, and that’s just the start of it.  Over the years the beauty industry has recognized and developed systems and procedures that work well for organizational strategy, time management, and effectiveness for the business overall.

But if you’re like most people at home, you’re often annoyed at the heaping collection of products you’re Continue reading

Nutritional supplements for hair, skin and nails?  Dry Shampoo?  Detangling products for hair?  We’ve got the answers and we say some of everything.   But first let’s take an inventory.  It might be helpful to know where you’re going, who’s going, and whether or not you can “share the task” of packing together.  If 3 or 4 are traveling together, it might not be necessary for everyone to bring a hair dryer.  Or perhaps there’s one in the room and you can skip that altogether.
