One of my favorite events to attend at America's Beauty Show (ABS) in Chicago is the CND Shellac Runway Show. I remember last year when I attended the first show ever presented at ABS, thinking to myself, "How is the audience supposed to see such a tiny feature on the models?" Well, luckily there's a huge screen on both sides of the room that helps you see up close. Or, luckily for me, I have a camera that zooms!. ;)

After attending the CND Shellac Runway Show in 2011, and snapping some photos, I realized that they ended up being some of the best I took at the show last year. So, I just HAD to go to the show this year to see the new designs. To start of the show, the marvelous Jan Arnold said a few words to the audience and talked primarily about CND's history and recent accomplishments. Each of the nails shown in the presentation are individually hand-crafted, and are influenced by fashion. Arnold introduced some new trends for the season including "New Rock N' Roll," "Organi-tech," and "Treasured Antiquity."

I tried to get up as close as I could to these models to show you these nail designs. Flip through the album below. They are fantastic!

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.

Big Cut, Beautiful Balayage, Nice Donation

Maggie Mulhern | December 5, 2016

Sydney Julian (@sydneyjulianhair) of Design 1 Salon and Spa, Grand Rapids, Michigan, says her client, a college student, had been growing her air for years and needed and wanted a change. The hair was cut (12 inches) and donated to Wigs For Kids. After some layering, face framing and texturizing, Julian got busy with color. Formula here.
