Design Summit – West

…This past weekend the L’Oreal west coast education team came together for three days of learning and sharing our passion.  It was a weekend filled with cutting, cutting, new product launches and cutting…and it was fabulous!

We at L’Oreal are embarking on a new frontier; one that will see us grow to become a top design company as well as the leader in all things color.  My excitement lies in being part of the team bringing design to the forefront for, and with, L’Oreal.  Our TEXTUREcutting and mens HOMMEcutting (supporting our mens haircare line) are incredible systems of design and will further enhance the skills of designers everywhere.  I for one, am a better artist for the learning.

…Not directly related to L’Oreal, but exciting just the same, was my involvement in The Administrative Assistants of the 9th and 10th Curcuit Courts Seminar.  I teamed with makeup artist Chris Scott and image maker Antonia Russo in emparting our shared passion and knowledge of beauty tips and tricks to 160 attendees, hoping that they can go home and back to work with the added tools and confidence in creating self beauty.

Chris gave an incredible presentation on quick makeup tips when you are on a limited clock to get ready (and ladies, these tips are done at home, not while driving…despite what Chris says!).  Antonia was wonderful at showing everyone how to dress the part for work and going out; how to make something pop with just a bit of color and how to create that signature look.  For my part, I showed how to dress up a design with a couple simple tricks and explained the merits of using the right products for your hair and scalp.  I also touched on how to have a proper conversation with your designer (to get maximum benefit and attention).

These two events made for an incredible week!  One that has surely taught me as much, if not more, than I was able to give others.  I look forward to still more sharing and the doors to be opened from these experiences.
