Alaina Antonicello on Blush Brides

Alaina Antonicello, founder of Blush Brides, joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss the traveling hair and makeup agency.

Blush Brides travels anywhere in New York, New Jersey or Pennsylvania. They come to you and get you ready for any event, ranging from date night to your wedding day.

“I started going to beauty school when I was 15,” Antonicello says. She then started working for salons, and had a baby girl.

“When you have a child, it’s so hard to balance being a mother and going to work,” she states. “So, I tried to find a way to do both.” She then started doing hair and makeup for weddings, and things quickly picked up.

As for 2018 trends, Antonicello says that more dramatic makeup looks are in right now. This is a contrast from a few years back when a simple and natural look was the hottest request.

New Year, New Hair with Anthony Garubo Salon

Looking for a new hair style to start off the new year? Check out Anthony Garubo Salon in Maplewood.

#HipNJ’s own Lisa Marie Latino was treated to a new cut and color by a great team of stylists who worked for hours to transform her look just in time for 2018.

For her color, Stephanie Lopez used a highlighting technique which brought out the cinnamon tones in Latino’s hair, creating a multi-dimensional look.

For her cut, the stylist kept it simple by allowing her hair to stay long and soft. She trimmed the ends and used a curling iron to add some gentle waves for a feminine touch.

The final product was a glamorous look that had everyone excited. Call the salon today at 973-762-1212 to schedule an appointment to get your new look for 2018.
