What a wonderful start to the Christmas season at Holtz Spa!

To mark the end of the bi-annual fashion shows hosted at Sant
é Restaurant, and the beginning of the festive season, Holtz Spa hosted a finale fashion show to display the latest trends in hair and makeup.

The looks that Shwarzkopf displayed in their new collection for both men and women were inspired by modern edgy professionals, retro but classy 40s styles, and romantic fantasy.

To carry out these visions, the hair stylists showcased their skills and abilities using coloring from Shwarzkopf. The hair styling products supplied by Kevin Murphy further defined these inspired looks.

To complete and polish the looks, we give a big thanks to our expert makeup artists who transformed the models. This made them look flawless with mineral makeup provided by Jane Iredale.

Let us not forget the stunning jewelry the models wore. These were provided by Myka, Originals by Andrea, Joshua Tree, Jumping Junipars, and Karen McClintock.

Congratulations to both Holtz Spa and Sant
é Restaurant for carrying out a memorable finale! I highly anticipate another dazzling show in April 2014!

Guest blogger le closet | Little black dress

‘Tis the season to shop for a new dress!

Everyone needs a new dress this time of year, whether it be for a Holiday work party or a New Years eve bash. It’s always fun to dress up, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to round up some of my favourite little back dresses (I can't believe I never posted about this before?!).

These frocks are perfect for the holiday season, but can easily be accessorized to create different outfits throughout the year. Dress it up or dress it down, everything you have ever heard about the "little black" dress is true; It is classic, flattering and timeless. It’s easy to create that perfect look, no matter your style, body or budget. Invest in something that fits well and accentuates your features and it will surely become a piece that you wear time and time again. 

All that’s left is the champagne!

Happy holidays and happy shopping!
