BES VIP Services at the Seagate Hotel and Spa

Menotti VIP Womens Haircut at the Seagate Hotel and Spa

A few days ago was very exciting for Casa di Menotti and was the first of many to come! We did a photoshoot of our VIP service at the Seagate Hotel and Spa in Delray Beach.

First, I would like to share how impressed I was with the Seagate Hotel and Spa. From the moment I arrived, I was immersed in the luxurious and stunning designs of the lobby, restaurant, and bar. The service was impeccable from valet to concierge and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is coming to visit Delray Beach or anyone who wants to feel like royalty for the night. Read More

Casa Di Menotti comments on the Hottest Hair Trend of 2013

What do you peeps think of this new pixie cut trend? It’s being done by the top celebrities from Beyonce to Miley Cyrus. I must say it’s a daring decision but after browsing through this gallery I can say that these women look gorgeous with their short style. You can sculpt it into an edgy look like Charlize Theron or keep it feminine and classic like Michelle Williams. Overall, It really brings out the beauties in a woman’s face, making her subtle features pop. While it may not be for everyone, it is certainly a hairstyle to consider.

I had a client last week with shoulder length curly hair come in and take the pixie cut plunge. She had no inhibitions about it being to short or masculine. I was amazed by how the short hair accentuated her natural beauty, bringing out her stunning smile.

Take a look at the pictures from her pixie cut transformation here.

CONCIERGE Shout Out To: ResponsiveWordPressWebsites.com

Casa di Menotti website by Responsive WordPress Websites

From the first meeting with Chris and Kim from Responsive WordPress Websites, I felt that they genuinely had my highest interest in mind. Conversely, the first web designer I had chosen was half the price but not even a comparison in terms of quality. All I was receiving was a glorified brochure with a generic look, not a website.

After this first encounter with a web designer I was apprehensive, but Kim and Chris explained to me the way the internet worked and gave me an education in all of the various aspects of maintaining a website. This enabled me to make informed decisions. They held my hand through the entire process or as they would like to put it “taking baby steps”.  Their comprehensive interview helped me focus my intentions on what I wanted to create with my website and helped me formulate goals that would expand my business.

Woody Allen on hairstyle and leading ladies natural beauty

I’ve always enjoyed Woody Allen movies and he’s got a new one that just came out, Blue Jasmine. I’ve read a couple of reviews and dig the “Pride stays, even after the fall” premise.

There’s a really cool post in nymag.com that sings the praises of Woody having his leading ladies just letting their own natural beauty shine through on the big screen and mentions how that’s done via their hairstyles and haircuts. It’s worth a read if you’re a Woody Allen fan or checking out his new movie when out and about in Palm Beach County this weekend.

BES SILKAT keeps your hair from looking old too

aging hair making you look old - SILKAT shampoo and conditioner now available at Casa di Menotti

Peeps – today I wanted to share more information with you about the BES SILKAT shampoo and conditioner lines which we use at Casa di Menotti.

Not only are WE (yes, men too!) worrying about lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, but now let’s throw our hair into that unholy mix. Just what you wanted to hear, right? Stop and think about it for a sec. We try product after product to delay, repair and hopefully fix what our past and current lifestyles are responsible for. Making it easier for us when we have that Mirror, Mirror on the Wall moment. It’s not just more and more bad hair days we are encountering, but the whole aging process is giving us graying, thinner and more brittle hair.

Curly Hair-Perils, Pitfalls and Joys

I came across this brilliant post “Problems Only People With Curly Hair Will Understand” on BuzzFeed.com the other day that made me laugh out loud. All my wavy, curly, tight and kinky (not that type of kinky!) hair peeps can relate for sure. Take a look when you have a sec and start the weekend with a smile on your face.

How Cute Is Kate?

I admit it. I’m a sucker for the British Royal Family just like the next person. I know, I know…don’t let my macho exterior fool you. Let me tell you, when Kate Middleton walked down the Lindo Wing steps in London, holding the future King of England (disguised as a precious baby boy) she took my breath away. Being one of five children, I have first hand knowledge on what’s it like on our exhausted Mothers after childbirth and their hair isn’t usually high on the priority list. Granted the majority of women aren’t royalty nor do they have a personal Hair Stylist on call, but I have never seen anyone resemble a Disney Princess after giving birth.

My Background

my casa is your casa

Hair styling is in my roots

Dealing with hair is a part of everyone’s life. In my case, it’s also my life’s work. I come from three generations of hair stylists, so you could say hair styling is in my roots (pun intended). I got my start in 1972 at the Vidal Sassoon Hair Salon in Manhattan, and worked there for two years before I was allowed to even touch a pair of shears, let alone cut hair. However, the experience was incredible and taught me the fundamental skills and knowledge of hair style.
