The abundance of spring makes us yearn for a fresh start or something new. Spring is the perfect time to audit your closet or revitalize your wardrobe. Get rid of things that no longer fit, are worn out or no longer serve you. Put a new spring in your step by adding the perfect pair of shoes, bag, shirt, tie, watch or a new flattering and updated hairstyle.


In this issue, I provide helpful tips on choosing the right hairstyle, colour or stylist to update your look, and consequently promote a current and positive personal and professional image.


I am so thrilled to introduce a new contributor to Savoir-vivre. Amy Anastasopoulos, our oldest daughter, is currently the Health & Wellness Section Editor for ProTem, Glendon's bilingual newspaper. Her article "Beware the cosmetics aisle! How safe are your everyday toiletries?" published in the February issue of ProTem is full of pertinent information and a perfect fit for this issue of Savoir-vivre. 


I wish all of you a fruitful and bountiful remaining 2012!

Is Your "Crowning Glory" Up To Par With Your Image?


What Does Your Hairdo Say About You?


What Does Your Hairdo Say About You?An unkempt hairdo can ruin the effect of a great outfit in a matter of minutes. A flattering hairstyle will not only maximize your facial features but also minimize your flaws while enhancing your overall image. A poor or unkempt haircut will do just the opposite. A great hairstyle starts by knowing what suits your face shape, lifestyle, type of hair, and personality. Seek the help of a talented and sympathetic hair stylist that you trust. Read more

To dye or not to dye?


To dye or not to dye
Personally, I'm a big advocate of "not to dye". I have yet to meet a woman who's happy with her died-hair color. Ever been awestruck by the beauty of a natural landscape or scenery in the forest? Or ever contemplated on how the water, the sky, the mountains, the forest and the earth all seem to harmoniously enhance each other naturally? Ever looked at nature and thought "Oh, dear! Mother Nature really messed up. What was she thinking about mixing the colors of the earth with the colors of the sky or trees?"  ... Hum, no? I didn't think so. I have always believed that what we were born with is our ultimate best. It is already perfect. So why mess up with what I already like?  Read more.

Haydan Bull - having a bad hair day?

Some of the most popular children's stories, like the tale of the best-known long-haired heroine of all time, "Rapunzel" by the Brothers Grimm, have explored the mystery, power and love of long, flowing tresses. Even the heroine of Disney's 50th animated film "Tangled" is adapted from the original Rapunzel tale recorded by the Brothers.


However, the one story that caught my attention while searching the Internet is this wonderful children's story called "A Bad Hair Day" by Margo Fallis. I felt that this entertaining story about a Highland Bull called Haydan that lives in the highlands of Scotland, struggling with his long, hairy coat very appropriate for this issue as my topic is hair.  Read more

How safe are your everyday toiletries?

How safe are your toiletries?

You wake up in the morning and head for the washroom. You wash your face. You wash your hair with shampoo and perhaps conditioner. You scrub your with soaps and gels. You moisten with lotions, potions, and powers, add deodorant, hair de-frizzers, gels, hairspray, and curling /straightening creams. Many ladies will also add foundations, powders, mascara, eyeliners and shadows, and lipstick. Add some cologne or perfume. Don't forget to brush those teeth! Read more!
