Melissa Black, Owner of Bombshell Salon

Melissa Black, Owner of Bombshell Salon

Recently I met with Melissa Black, the owner of Bombshell Salon.  If you're not familiar with Bombshell, they've won multiple awards for their services from waxing, tanning, nails and hair. They have three locations in the Greater Richmond Area and are absolutely killing it in the beauty game!

Melissa shared with me a few top hair trends for 2017. The first trend: Balayage! They call it “painted hair” as it is a graduation of color from dark to light or light to dark.

Another hair trend for 2017 that is one of my personal favorites (I absolutely hate to wash my hair!) is called the Wash Blow And Go Go! Of course, I also love the name of this service! It is so on. brand with Melissa's pin-up style with her love of all things 50’s! This service starts at only $35! I had the pleasure of working with Dave Holland, Bombshell's Artistic Director, and received my very own Wash Blow And Go Go and absolutely loved it!

Luxe Lashes Beauty Studios in CaryTown

Luxe Lashes Beauty Studios in CaryTown

There’s a brand new beauty boutique that has recently opened in CaryTown at 3405 West Cary Street in Richmond called Luxe Lashes — I had the honor of meeting with the owner, Arielle Davis, to learn more about the products and services she plans to provide. 

In my time with Arielle, I learned that she has a heart for Microblading - - one of the most sought after services that Luxe Lashes offers. 

Let’s face it, eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature! Microblading is ideal for the woman who wants to fully reconstruct or define her eyebrows. The best part? Arielle offers personal consultations in order to discover the best eyebrow shape and style that would look best on you. 

In addition to Microblading, Luxe Lashes offers eyebrow waxing and threading, luxury lash extensions, airbrush makeup and airbrush tanning. You can head over to for more information and to book an appointment online. Of course all services are of course performed by experienced & certified technicians. 

We are SO excited to give away a gift card for $50 towards your service at Luxe Lashes! In order to enter this giveaway you must follow @lookgoodliveluxe on Instagram - -  click here for more details — The winner will be announced on February 3rd!


McKenzie Payne is one of the most incredible people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, and she is the boss lady behind Mac’s Smack, a high performance line of beauty products for your face, lips and skin. Each of her products are handcrafted and include only 100% pure ingredients from Mother Nature.

What I love about McKenzie’s process is she only selects clean ingredients that are non-toxic, highly effective and provide maximum benefit without harming the environment or our health. Creating minimalist highly concentrated formulas without fillers, synthetics or artificial ingredients is her commitment to you. In addition, almost all of the Mac’s Smack products are made with local Virginia ingredients!

McKenzie left a few products for us try to over the past few weeks, I personally love Flower Power Hydrating Tonic, I’ve been using it to set my makeup in the mornings and I’ve found that my skin looks and feels refreshed and hydrated all day. Jessica Noll, Executive Producer of Virginia This Morning, tried the Mighty Mint Lip Balm and loved the way it made her lips feel protected and nourished throughout the day.
