Bling it on

Before I introduced celebrity hair colorist Rita Hazan at the Southern Women's Show a few weeks ago, I had a chance to take in a few performances by the talented dancers at Arthur Murray Dance Studios.

One dancer had extra sparkle on stage and I thought she looked really glamorous.

A few days later when I was giving a presentation at the show, she happened to walk by my booth and I immediately stopped her because I realized why she shined so much on stage - she had strategically placed "bling" on her face and in her hair.

I forgot to get her name, but she told me that she buys the bling at Michael's. It's self-adhesive and comes in a variety of colors and sizes. She says to plan carefully where you want to put it first because the more you move it around, the less the adhesive sticks. Once it's on, she says the trick is to not touch it at all. Just leave it be and shine on.

With Halloween coming and the holidays, I thought this was a great tip to share if you want to add a little extra sparkle to your look.
