Live Review: Natasha Sunshine-Antonioni Launches ByuTi Salon in Brentwood

Celebrity hair stylist Natasha Sunshine-Antonioni celebrated the grand opening of ByuTi Salon's second location in Brentwood, CA this past week. To kick-off the milestone, magazine editors and bloggers were invited to enjoy two complimentary signature services whether it be a haircut, blow dry, ByuTi Blender, eyebrow shaping or makeup application. Unable to pass up the opportunity (and curious to see what this new salon had to offer), I opted for a haircut and eyebrow shaping.

Upon arrival, I made my way to the second floor of 17740 San Vicente Boulevard and walked over to Suite 203. I waited in the lobby, which contained Asian flair and warm modernist tones. Ebony wood stations and chocolate leather chairs gave the salon a clean, posh feel. In the lobby, there was a wall dedicated to press clips and celebrity clients.

Hair stylist Lee Krislov greeted me and then we walked over to the changing station, similar to a spa experience. Instructed to change into a black robe, I was then escorted to the makeup station for my eyebrow shaping.

Colorist/Stylist Marisa Kerns hooked up my eyebrows
Marisa Kerns, a bubbly and very personable colorist/stylist hailing from San Diego, began waxing and taming my unkempt brows. The experience was painless, fast and made me realize that getting my eyebrows professionally done vs. doing it myself was a much better (and stress-free) experience. I wondered why I waited so long to do this. Additionally, when Kerns told me that my eyebrows had a "beautiful shape" and "all they needed was a good cleaning," it made my day. Trust me, when you've spent years doing your own eyebrows, wondering if the left one was higher than the right, this is exactly what you want to hear.

As soon as we finished with the eyebrow shaping, Kerns brought me over to Lee Krislov, a funny, personable and uber professional stylist who made me feel like I was in good hands. However, sitting in the cutting station, I was still nervous and found myself mentally recalling every female celebrity's haircut and style. I knew what I wanted last night, how could I have forgotten such an important decision? This was intense.

Colorist/Stylist Lee Krislov revamped and upgraded my hair
Lee Krislov asked me what style I wanted and putting his skills to the test, I replied, "I want something modern, perhaps layers but something that complements my face shape." With a debonair confidence, he was up for the challenge and evaluated my current look. He explained that my hair was all one length and lacked the moisture that it should have. He assured me that he would fix the situation. After washing my locks and applying a minty leave in conditioner, he wrapped my hair in a warm towel to lock in the moisturizer. We headed over to the cutting station and already, I could see the difference.

As I sipped the herbal tea he made me, he began cutting. I started to see the finished product come into place and could tell my look was already being transformed to a more "modern" style. I thanked him for bringing me into 2012. See the finished product below:

Once the haircut was done, I sarcastically said, "Great, all I need to do now is throw on some makeup." Krislov then brought me back to Kerns and I apologized, "Oh, I was just joking. I'm just going back to the office afterwards. There's no need for full-on makeup." They insisted, I caved and Mariska applied a soft, daytime look consisting of a bit of bronzer, shimmer and nude tones. I was satisfied and walked out with a full makeover.

In short, ByuTi Salon was nothing but professional, courteous and the entire experience was reminiscent to a spa day. Did I mention they have complimentary champagne on the weekend? The Brentwood salon will offer special packages, including complimentary treatments for new clients in addition to 20 percent off products and their next appointment.

Besides haircuts and colorings, visitors can enjoy a few perks including:
The Healing Haircut, - a restorative meditation and beauty treatment; ByuTi Blenders, - custom-formulated treatments unique to each client to boost shine, volume, smoothness, and restorative repair andMen’s Grooming.

CAM4 To Sponsor The Ms. EXXXOTICA 2017 Competition

EXXXOTICA, the nation’s largest event dedicated to love and sex, just announced that webcam portal CAM4 has signed on as a show sponsor for 2017. CAM4 will be sponsoring and presenting one of the expo’s most popular events, as well as one of its newest initiatives for EXXXOTICA Chicago in June and EXXXOTICA New Jersey in November.
Developed as a community with a focus on social networking, CAM4 is much more than a traditional webcam site, and they are now the presenting sponsor of SW!TCH, EXXXOTICA’s LGBT showcase.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."


COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…

Live Review: Diddy's Grammy After-Party at the Playboy Mansion

Diddy's Grammy after-party at the Playboy Mansion was a star-studded affair on Sunday as Chris Brown, Too Short, Busta Rhymes, Paris Hilton, Jenny McCarthy, Wilmer Valderrama and Sebastian Bach, among others were in attendance. Party-goers who paid anywhere between $1,500 and $50,000 were able to enjoy a live fashion show, live music, DJ, open bar, buffet and rub elbows with Playboy Playmates. Hugh Hefner was even awarded, "Humanitarian of the Year" for his commitment to helping charities and those in need.
