Madame and Me - Madame's Place

Amidst a very busy week for hair & makeup for Critics Choice Awards as well as Daytime Emmys, a very special friend stopped by to see me yesterday to be sure everyone was as beautiful as she.

Right off the plane from her home in New York, Madame stopped by to say a hello to me yesterday and catch me up on some of her dish.  Looking as gorgeous as ever in blue feathers and lace, she was the talk of the town yesterday making a guest appearance in our salon as well as meeting adoring fans all over Beverly Hills.

We can't wait to see what Madame has going on next and catching (perhaps) an upcoming show with her.

We'll keep you posted.

Gloss & Toss in Seattle -

Gloss & Toss visits Seattle for VIP meetings
Gloss & Toss Seattle

We had a very exciting day yesterday (June 4, 2014) in visiting Seattle, WA to showcase Gloss & Toss to our future retail partner - more details coming soon.    Obviously the trip was a quick "up and back" and same day visit but well worth the 2AM wake-up call.

While there we had an amazing lunch at a new restaurant called Miller's Guild downtown near 7th street.  After walking the streets of Seattle on what turned out to be a VERY nice, warm, clear day - we stopped at Zeek's Pizza near The Space Needle for a quick afternoon pick-me-up before heading back to the airport for the trip back to Los Angeles.

We're excited about the growth, progress and happenings with the Gloss & Toss brand and continue to believe Gloss & Toss is the best hair serum on the market.  Our new retail partner LOVES the formula and we know you will as well.

Social Bullying

Social bullying is mean-spirited, unkind, and absolutely unnecessary.   Bullying doesn't just hurt on the outside, it hurts on the inside too.

Today a "Facebook friend" shared a photo slamming shoppers at Wal-Mart who appeared in photos that somehow found their way to the world wide web.    The photos showed customers that may experience weight issues, perhaps had a mis-hap in a Wal-Mart Store - or maybe made a derogatory comment about their purchases.

The truth is, these are people - just like you and me.  I grew up working part-time as a Wal-Mart Stockman in Douglas, Georgia and Wal-Mart paid for much of my events, clothing, college admissions fees, etc all throughout high school.  I am proud of the opportunity to work there, to have shopped there, and to have made some great friends during my high school career.

Now, as a 20 year veteran of the health and beauty industry - I am absolutely insensed that people find humor in other peoples' misfortune or accidents.  But to take it one step further, to take photos of these bystanders who are just living their lives day-to-day, and then post these photos online with awful remarks is uncalled for.   IT's the same thing as BULLYING.

That's someone's mom you're talking about.  That's someone's sister, or brother, or perhaps someone with a disability doing the very best they can.  FURTHERMORE, they're keeping the world going round by getting out and about - spending their hard earned dollars just like you do.

Social Bullying is unnecessary and I'm sure the people at Wal-Mart don't appreciate it just as the victims don't.   We have all experienced bullying on some level.  I know I have.   As a kid in grade school I was beaten every day and called names that I didn't even know the meaning of.  But to see this carried on into adulthood by 20, 30, 40 even 50 year old men and women is truly childish and unkind.  

Mean words are like weights that knock people around and are very very hurtful.

Please put an end to Social Bullying.    Discourage your friends from posting such remarks  or unkind gestures.  

Yours in BEAUTY,

Billy Lowe
