Spring has just sprung and yet it's already starting to feel like summer. As the weather gets warmer, dear readers, we all look for ways to keep cool and feel fresh. Whether that involves finding a nice shady spot to enjoy patio drinks or shopping for some new frocks, the change in weather is welcome after being bundled up for months and blasting the heaters. One way to wake up looking fresh and fabulous is to have your lashes tinted. The process only takes about 15 minutes of your time, uses vegetable dye and is an instant eye opener! Lash tinting is a great alternative for fair haired beauties as well as a great cover up for grays. The best part is that you eliminate the need for mascara, which when summer rolls around is a plus plus for any outdoor activities like swimming or let's just face it...walking in this Central Texas humidity.
Give us a call at 512.469.0447 to book your appointment with Joann, Emily or Elizabeth.
Sabia is open 7 days a week.
We look forward to pampering you!

Inspiration: Three Twisted Buns

Today we are inspired by this post we saw on one of our favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo.  

It is a beautiful, simple and fun way to wear your hair this Spring. What is your go-to fast easy updo?

1. This style is so easy, it's laughable. Day-old hair is best (which is true for most hairstyles, since it's easier to work with hair that has a little dirt in it).
2. Divide your hair into three equal parts and quickly spray each section with a little hairspray to help give it hold. Let the hairspray set for a couple seconds, and then lightly comb it out.
3. Take the section on your right side, and twist your hair all the way down to the end. You want to twist counter-clockwise, toward your face. Wrap the right section in on itself, just like you're making a little bun. Let some of the hair stick out, it's ok (you don't want them to look like Princess Leia buns).
4. Pin the right bun in place. I like to use these mini bobby pins, since they're easier to hide and they're coated in rubber so they hold your hair better.
5. Next, twist the middle section clockwise and pin. Then twist the left section clockwise and pin.
6. Spray the three buns with a little more hairspray, and you're done!
