Happy New Year 2010

The above photo was taken in Merida Venezuela. I know it doesn't look like much but for me its one of the most magical places on earth. As a small child and through my youth I spent most of my New Years in this small town located in the Andes Mountains of my home country. Some of the best memories of my life took place here. Merida has been a huge part of my life and means so much to me. Today I wanted to share a small portion of my life with you. If I could have one wish it would be that I could be there tonight!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS-Trend Report 2010!

2010 Is going to be a great and very colorful year! A little Bohemian and a lot of Rock and Roll!
For those of you who like your hair to speak rather than scream, Sun-kissed and stripey is out the door. Bohemian is all about dimension and movement with a very ethereal feeling. For those who are more daring and want to make a statement, Rock and Roll all the way, its all about dark cool shades! Influenced by Japanese cartoons, non traditional high contrast highlights will bring high drama!
As for our Brides, 2010 has some fun stuff in store as well! Classically Unique is a must for hair! Check out the rest of the wedding trends here.
Were excited for the upcoming year and all it has in store for all things hair!!!!


Taking Fashion to the Farm - Enizio heads to MUD LAKE ID

This month our team had the opportunity to visit the Bybee Family Farm in Mud Lake ID. Between the insanely cold weather to the out of our character activities, this experience was an unforgettable one. The Bybee's had us feeding, branding and preg checking the cows, as well as shooting targets, ribbon roping and riding horses. We also had the opportunity to train with Stephanie's old Paul Mitchell team on the importance of communication and team unity. It was a wild yet successful 3 days, ones I know I will never forget! Check it out....



I love when brides send us pictures with thank you emails. Sara was one of Flavias brides who hired Enizio for her makeup application. I think we can all agree she looks stunning! When she sent me the picture I had to post it. Thank you Sarah for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your day. Its always a pleasure and an honor!

Dear Amy, We adore you... Love, Enizio

Amy, Amy, Amy... I just don't even know where to begin because there is so much that I could share about our experience with this angelic bride. Amy was a riot to work with. She was not only fun and energetic she was the most kind and generous bride we have ever had. After everything was said and done, Amy invited Carol and I to be sit down guests at her dinner reception which was a huge honor. Photographed by the sweet Darla Roze, Amy is an absolute inspiration. Check out the rest of her session here. You can also see all her flower artistry there done by the ever so lovely Audrey Obrien of Studio Stems.
Thank you Amy for sharing your wedding day with us, we adore you!!


Old Hollywood- Kates Groomals

Kate hired us to recreate an old hollywood look with a modern twist. When I saw her inspiration photos I was stoked to get my hands in her hair!!! We did pin curls, finger waves and perm rods (very small ones!) I could not have been happier with the way it turned out! Carol glammed her up using Audrey Hepburn inspiration. Kate was photographed by our favorite photog Heidi Uhl! She's done it again!! You can check out the rest of her DELICIOUS session here. We look forward to her wedding at which point we will post some before and afters so stay tuned!!

The Holiday Season has arrived! I couldn't be more excited! December is a month of holiday cheer, parties and a lot of love!! Here's Enizio's must have products to get you through the season looking your very best!

1. Makeup Forever Primer
The end of the year means longer hours at work. It also means little prep time between your day activities into your evening activities. Makeup Forever Primer will help your makeup last throughout the day making it easier and quicker to switch your day look into your night look.
Primers are wonderful for filling in all the imperfections in the face helping to give you a flawless foundation application.

2. Chroma Thermique
This is the season we pull out all the heat tools. Your hair will take a huge beating so its important you protect it from heat damage. Chroma Thermique protects hair from the harmful effects of heat-styling tools and other aggressors. It improves hair drying time and straightening performance. Nourishes, softens and moisturizes the hair while providing lasting optimal shine from roots to ends.

3. Sublimateur Jour
Its cold outside which only means DRY HAIR. Argh!!!
Lucky you, Kerastase just launched a new styling aid. This is my favorite!!!
Sublimateur Jour provides lightweight nourishment without weighing down the hair or leaving any residue. It leaves the hair super soft, shinny and supple. Best of all, it protects from frizz and dryness. This is a must have for any hair type this holiday season! Use before or after your blow style.
