It was a pampering lunch for the mothers and their babies while enjoying manicures, makeovers and facials! How uplifting it was for the N2beauty Team to relax and rejuvenate these young mother's and mother's to be.

What will matter is that you were important in the life of a child.

Nicole of N2Beauty Cosmetics appears at P.S./I.S.270Q The Gordon Parks School for Inquisitive Minds.  Reading to the first and second grade classes the classic Dr. Seuss books.
"Oh the Thinks you can Think", "Fox in Socks", "Green Eggs and Ham" and last but not least "The Cat in the Hat". Today marked Dr.Seuss's Birthday he would have been 108 years old! In honor of him it was
"Read Across America" day. Local businesses and parents volunteered their time to read to kids.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."~ Dr. Seuss

"Its not the size of your home, bank account or car that matters.In the end what will matter is that you were important in the life of a child."

There is nothing better than Love - Until The End Of Time Remix

In the spirit of Love. (if the video does not play watch on you tube please)
This is one of my favorite duets. Valentine's Day just passed us but since it fell on a Tuesday I figure for some there will still be celebrations through out the weekend. I say you should celebrate and love the one your with. Tomorrow is never a promise to any of us. Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is Love. 1Cor13:13

To Wax or Not to Wax? That is the question.

N2beauty waxing client
Waxing is the best solution for removing hair. Hair is made from a  hard protein called Keratin, which is produced from the hair follicle.Wax is designed to adhere to the hair as close to the skin as possible. When the wax is removed, it should adhere to the hair and remove the bulb from the follicle. period.
Waxing in my professional opinion is the best solution for hair removal. It works below the skins surface to remove the entire hair strand, unlike shaving or threading which is cutting off the hair right at the surface of the skin. Hair that grows back from waxing is smoother, finer and takes longer to return whereas with other methods the regrowth is very coarse.
Eyebrows are to me the 2nd most important feature to your facial makeup. Number 1 being a clear complexion. Your eyebrows frame your face therefore setting the tone of your overall look.
Designing a brow or eyebrow shaping is an art. I'm an artist and I'm serious about my shh..craft. (smile)
The well defined brow in one of my company's logos is done on purpose. Some call me the "brow goddess" because I have and can undo the mess you get your eyebrows into when you go to your local nail salon and get the $5 special wax on/ wax off treatment. Or the clipper/razor to the eyebrow treatment.
 Once in my chair..."when you know better you do better", you get the proper treatment. Your initial brow visit and consultation will be 25 minutes. Wow, why so long? you ask a good question beauties. The first reason is I am in the business of pampering my clients and second I need to know if there are any contraindications* before wax is applied to your skin, otherwise you may have a skin reaction.
You should not have any waxing done if you

N2Beauty's Brilliant Thoughts

I'm known to be a master in this beauty field

Much respect since I entered ...and in the end you'll kneel

So Whatcha' Sayin'

April 12, 1968 WEEK OF SHOCK

This was probably one of the most infamous speeches delivered in our entire nation. I as well as my family with the team at N2Beauty Cosmetics remembers...we would like to invite you to reflect on his words.  49 years ago today Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered  "I Have a Dream."

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. 

One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. 

And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Top of the New Year Beauties!

Hello Beautiful,
Well it's been a long time...I shouldn't left you.. without some dope articles to refresh you.
I think about  those weak blogs you suffered through.. but times up, Sorry I kept you.
 (lol,thanks Rakim)
It's been a year to the day since my last post. I feel like I spoke the theme of 2011's Re-Do You
into my own life. It's been a year full of Revitalization, Reinvention, a Rebirth if you will.
I truly took a step back and made my family, my business and myself a priority.
It was rather Refreshing. I am Revitalized and Refocused.
So here we go beauties! Cheers to a Remarkable 2012!

The symbol for nitrogen...we all know what that does :)

Cheers to You in 2011

Hey Beautiful,
A toast to you in this New Year. I started the New Year with a challenge. Re-Do You in 2011! 
I will be focusing on creating a brand new you throughout this year.  Beauty is only skin deep so we will create beauty inside and out this year.   Make yourself a priority. This is my theme for the year.
One of the elements of the challenge was to get a new healthy regimen so lets be about it and not just talk. I'm here to do it with you and educate and guide along the way.
How do we live longer healthier lives? How do we add good years?

Here is how...Add:
  • 5 years by Not Smoking let's see your teeth turn yellow, your voice gets raspy, you get winded easily, it gives you Cancer and your skin wrinkles and looks like a snake.
  • 5 years for Power Foods can you say antioxidants..a handful of dark chocolate, a glass of red wine and fruit like blueberries along with veggies like broccoli. Yummy
  • 4 years by Not Eating Fast Food decrease fat and cholesterol and stay heart healthy
  • 3 years by Moving if you run 30 minutes 5x a week you'll live up to 4yrs longer, walk and you'll add 3.
  • 3 years by Losing Fat being overweight increases your risk of death by 20-40%.
  • 3 years by Eat Salmon 2x a week which is a personal fave. It lowers your risk of Alzheimer's disease and contains the Omega 3 fatty acids.
  • 3 years by Getting Married according to studies, married people are happier and healthier. Why? They take care of each other. Men see the Dr. because their wives make the appt. and take them. lol
  • 3 Years by HAVING SEX intercourse burns about 200 calories, which is the equivalent of 30 minutes of running! Which would you rather do :) It also cuts your risk of heart disease and stroke by 50% when you burn off these calories through sex. Endorphins make you happy.
You are in control of your destiny. Make you a priority in 2011.
70% of how long you live is determined by the choices you make for your lifestyle. Make good choices.

 Beauty is as beauty does...

New Year...Brand New You!

Re-Do You in 2011! Happy New Year Beautiful!
                  . It's time to make YOU over in 2011.
After the warmth of the holiday season with loved ones is over. After giving of yourself not just during the holidays but all year in your many starring and supporting roles as wife, mother, sister, daughter, bff, co-worker, entrepreneur, and girlfriend. Let's resolve to start this new year, new decade 2011 by motivating yourself into a brand new you!
I'm talking a true makeover from head to toe, inside and out. Think of it as re-branding yourself. It will energize and recharge your total outlook on life and improve your existing relationships. I will even bet that it will make you look and feel so different that you will go after things that you may have procrastinated on in the past year. I found that the only thing in the way of your goals most time is you. So I create this challenge for you this new year.

Re-Do You in 2011! It's all about you.

N2 H.I.M

Hello Beautiful,
Ladies we love our men don't we? I took a song from Toni Braxton,"I Love Me Some Him" and used it to inspire our signature men's skincare collection. N2 H.I.M the Handsome, Intelligent, Man.
Men have increasingly become aware of the need for maintaining healthy skin. When it became cool to get manicures and facials without being considered "sweet" and just good grooming habits (Thank you Diddy). We saw an increase in men taking care of themselves outside of the barber shop.
Men have a tendency to have more oilier skin than women and find that having an esthetician can clean their skin efficiently. We help them with the nuances of irritated skin from shaving and have them develop a proper cleansing regimen at home. We were pleasantly surprised to find out about 3years ago at The N2 Beauty Day Spa that men welcome the time to let go of daily pressures during regular facial visits. Men like to put their best face forward especially when their job requires a lot of client meetings.
Your image is important and believe it or not, as I always say whether your a man or woman your face is your 1st business card. 
A Woman Prefers a Well-Groomed Man... It's just Sexy.

N2 on Beauty

We are all different but the same, separated by our features and our inner makeup.- N2
The Runway creates trends and as artists we re-interpret them for our clients to wear on a daily basis. My approach to applying makeup on my clients is and has always been consultative. I teach the technique and tools while encouraging them to ask questions so they feel the most confident when on their own.
We look at our face in the mirror and discover ourselves, we try to notice what we are portraying to others. Beauty is about discovery, find a signature feature to highlight that you love. Your eyes, lips or complexion and define that look to portray the image you want others to see.Don't always apply the same colors or looks you wind up dating yourself.  Fix what you can and focus on your best features and you know what...God bless what we cannot change and love it anyway!
Don't fall prey to being trendy- follow the trend only if it looks good on you ( be truthful). Your look comes together with your hairstyle so take heed to the cut, style and color of your hair. . Educate yourself on info about cosmetic products and new tips and tricks. Take note of what you can apply to your image. Remember, beauty is as beauty does so Be beautiful and smile it captures your soul.
Happy Autumn!
