What a Year! 2013

Weddings, Wedding VenuesLockes on Location, Best Wedding Beauty & Health in Seattle - 2014 Couples' Choice Award Winner

2014 started out with great news! Lockes on Location Styling was honored with WeddingWire’s Couples’s Choice Award for the second year in a row! It’s recipients represent the top five percent of wedding professionals who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. I am so grateful for the kind words from my beautiful Brides.

2013 was my first full year with my new little guy. Being in the salon part-time and home the majority of the time has been the perfect balance for our family. I couldn’t do it without the support of my wonderful husband. I was able to be a part of over a dozen weddings and collaborate with Nicole Schauer Photography. Being a new mom, I loved offering a Mother’s Day Celebration Photography and Style Package with Nicole. We also did a Stylized shoot for her Class of 2014 Senior Models. Two of the photos were featured in Senior Style Guide’s Top 100! What a year!

I believe 2014 will bring much growth and increase! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Looking forward to a great year!

A healthy, radiant glow is just four steps away! This practical kit contains our best-sellers for complexion perfection: Natural Mineral Foundation, Mineral Rice Setting Powder, Crushed Mineral Blush, a Kabuki Blending Brush and a bonus — try me — size of Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder. Each kit comes with an easy-to-follow application guide and customized face chart. Available in four shade levels.

Why Youngblood?

Youngblood is the premier luxury mineral cosmetics line made of natural, finely ground minerals from the earth — without any of the common irritants (including chemicals, dyes and preservatives) found in conventional makeup. Created by former medical aesthetician, Pauline Youngblood, many of our products contain our signature mineral blend of Malachite, Rhodolite, Hematite and Zincite to help protect cells and tissue.

From the first moment you brush on the loose Natural Mineral Foundation, you’ll notice an incredibly silky feel and polished, fresh-faced finish. Our lightweight foundations contain a natural sun protectant, and look virtually undetectable while providing flawless, buildable coverage. Youngblood never appears glittery; instead, skin radiates a natural, healthy glow!

Youngblood is gentle to all skin types and conditions, including skin recovering from laser or chemical peels, or experiencing rosacea, acne or discoloration. It is the clear standard used at many upscale med-spas and skin care clinics around the world, and is carried at the finest boutiques including Henri Bendel in New York and NewBeauty at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, CA.

Our products are free of talc, parabens, oil and fragrance, and have earned numerous awards including “Best Foundation” (Beauty Launchpad) and “Best Mineral Blush” (NewBeauty). We are herald by professional makeup artists, celebrities and customers alike for our comprehensive assortment of natural-looking shades that are easy to use, long-lasting and able to stand up to heat, humidity and perspiration.

Why Minerals?

A mineral is an inorganic solid substance that occurs naturally in rocks and in the ground. When used in cosmetics, these micronized crystals reflect light to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Minerals provide rich color with natural pigments from the earth — unlike traditional makeup formulas, which contain harmful petroleum dyes and other chemical-based additives.

Minerals also naturally provide sun protection, keeping skin healthy and youthful. Minerals do not support the growth of bacteria or microbes, and pose a lower risk of allergic reaction. In fact, minerals are great for use on skin recovering from harsh medical procedures, and on problem skin conditions like rosacea, acne and discoloration.

What a Year!

lockes-badges

2013 started out with some very good news! Lockes on Location Styling was honored with WeddingWire’s Bride’s Choice Award! It’s recipients represent the top five percent of wedding professionals who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. I am so grateful for the kind words from my beautiful brides in their reviews. 2012 was exceedingly, abundantly, above all I could ask or think both professionally and personally.

It’s amazing what can happen in a year. When God puts something in your heart, He gives you everything you need to handle it. In December 2011, after 7 years of doing hair at the Tacoma Gene Juarez Salon, I branched out on my own as a freelance stylist at Baroque Salon. My husband and I were also ready to start a family. Before we knew it, I was pregnant with our first child! I didn’t suffer from any morning sickness, but I was exhausted being in the salon full time. Thankfully that past before a very busy summer.

At five months pregnant I traveled to Las Vegas, NV for inspiration at the International Beauty Show. Summer brought a busy bridal and photoshoot season. A Road Trip Wedding collaboration with Chloe Photography was featured on Green Wedding Shoes! And our Winter Wedding muse Erica, who was featured on Style Me Pretty in 2011, was spotlighted again in Click Magazine. Her Spring shoot will be seen in Popular Photography Magazine soon! I had the pleasure of styling over a dozen awesome wedding parties, young beauties with Nicole Schauer Photography, LHP’s Highschool Senior Reps, and several maternity shoots for a few of my dear friends. Thanks be to God for the strength and courage to tackle my first year of self employment being pregnant.

By the end of the season my baby bump started getting in the way. I went on maternity leave and my son was born at the end of October. The rest of 2012 was focused completely on him. It was a blessing being home loving on him over the holidays. A special thanks to Chloe, Latasha Haynes, and Nicole Schauer Photography for capturing this special time in my life.

I’m so glad I trusted God and stepped out in faith! I’m thankful for all of the love and support from my husband, family, and friends. It’s so nice being back in the salon. Now learning to balance being a Christian, Wife, Mother, and Business Owner is this year’s goal. God’s grace is sufficient for me. Looking forward to a great 2013!
