Hey ya'll!! Excited for this weeks Friday Favorites as it features items from one of my favorite beauty stores in the world, Parlour 3. Parlour 3 is located in Brentwood, TN, and also has an online store. If you've never been there, you should really check it out. It's every woman's dream of all things beauty and hair! The owner, Melissa Schleicher, is not only a dear friend of mine and my husband's, but she is also an incredible makeup artist, hair stylist and inspiring business woman. She is the beauty brains behind the stunning Carrie Underwood as well as many other country stars. When she is not traveling the world with Carrie making sure she looks fabulous (and come on, when has Carrie ever NOT looked fabulous!), you can find her at her store, being very hands on with every makeup, hair and beauty product they sell and how to tutorial they share.
Her newest endeavor, the Beauty Bus, is completely innovative and one of a kind for on the go beauty and hair needs. With three stations for both hair and makeup, the 45-foot bus has space for six clients to be styled at once. She uses the Beauty Bus as her makeup and hair styling hub for video shoots (like the latest video Carrie Underwood did with Miranda Lambert for their hit song "Something Bad"). What I love most about the Beauty Bus is that is can be rented for weddings, prom, Bachelorette parties, baby showers, sweet 16 and so much more! What a fun concept - a state of the art glammed out beauty salon meets chic party bus! I stopped by Parlour 3 this week while I was visiting home (I'm originally from Nashville) to squeeze Melissa's neck and picked up some new favorites!
Too Faced "Country Star" - Remember how I said Melissa was am inspiring business woman? Well leave it to this superwoman to team up with the amazing Too Faced Cosmetics to develop her own lipstick for them! It is aptly named Country Star and is absolutely, with out a doubt, the best peachy nude color I have ever found! It's super creamy and lasts for hours. Melissa told me that Country Star was her own concoction of colors she has been using on Carrie for years, so it's no surprise that Too Faced reached out to her about making it its own color. "Country Star" is available online at Parlour 3 or at Ulta.
Halo Couture Extensions - I am so glad Melissa introduced me to these extensions because I think they were literally made for moms!! Takes maybe 30 seconds to put on, and to take off you literally just flip it over... well just click here! (HOW COOL IS THAT!) No clips, no glue... just a wire and bam, gorgeous long locks! Great for anyone (especially moms) on the go! You can call Parlour 3 for purchasing info. The color I got is 112 Blonde w/ Warm highlights.
Pink Pewter "Amari" headband - I LOVE Pink Pewter headbands. I just love how they can make you look put together and chic on days that your hair is flat, dirty, frizzy etc. I have about 5 of these and wear them a lot. I like wearing them with my hair in a top bun, low messy bun or with my hair down. I picked up the Amari (pictured below) at Parlour 3 this week. You can find a slew of other styles at Parlour 3 and online here. I also have the Darcy, Allison, Melissa, Noel (super versatile) and one of my all time favs Brandy.
