Speaking of support…I finally redeemed my generous gift certificate I won from Brio Salon at the ASID Gala. Loren helped my head look pretty darn good with an updated cut and color. She had attended the ASID Gala that night, donated the gift certificate and gift basket, and also styles some of the other ID students at school. I’m all about supporting those who support our efforts. Brio Salon is located down the street from us at 2425 E. Broadway, so give her a call when it’s time to look the part! (520.882.8877)
Design Diction of the Day: Stained Glass~ Dating back to medieval times, this art form was originally used for adorning mosques, churches and other religious buildings. Stained glass experienced a revival, reborn again late in the 19th century through the creativity of artist Louis Comfort Tiffany and others.
