Wig ED: What To Look For When Looking For a Wig

Wig ED: What To Look For When Looking For a Wig

Founder of the non-profit Suite HOPE (Helping Oncology Patients Esthetically) and veteran makeup artist with over twenty-five years, Jeanna Doyle releases her new book Wig Ed: What To Look For When Looking For a Wig.

Millions of women wear wigs on a daily basis as a way of experimenting with their personal style or because they are dealing with hair loss. Generally, except on specific beauty blogs, wig is not a common topic and is perceived as taboo.

If you are ready to buy your first wig and you don’t know where to start, this book is an excellent information resource to guide you through this journey. From believable-looking wig to stories, travel tips and instructions for care (how to wash? how to dry?), this book covers all you need to know before choosing the right wig for you.

Barbie Haute Couture Exhibit at Les Cours Mont-Royal

Yesterday evening, we have celebrated the launch of The Barbie Expo at Les Cours Mont-Royal.

Expo Barbie

For the first time in Montreal, a permanent exhibit dedicated to Barbie will be open to the public starting February 11th during regular business hours seven days a week. There are many kinds of Barbies from all over the world embodying roles of queens, movie stars, iconic figures, modern women, teenagers, etc.

To celebrate fashion Haute Couture, some of them are dressed by famous designers such as Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Louboutin and many more.

As you are maybe aware, the dolls have come under many critics over the past years for promoting a dream body image and for a lack of diversity. The company Mattel has recently announced the launching of new Barbies who are curvier, shorter, taller and skin coloured.

As a preview, here are a selection of pictures from instagram taken during the lauching event:
