Balayage is Cool in Jacksonville

We have to share the most amazing hair salon in Jacksonville, West Coast Hair Design, they specialize in Balayage in Jacksonville. What is Balayage, well, lets look to wikipedia, our favorite go to:

Balayage is a technique of free-form painting on clean, styled hair. The results are subtle, and thus more natural-looking than foiling or chunking. Balayage is currently trending among women aged 18-27 in the American South.

An interesting side note, it is also a mathematical term meaning, adding harmony to an equation. We agree, Balayage does add harmony to the overall effect of hair coloring. So many times we see brassy or over processed hair when foils or caps are used. The hand-painting technique of Balayage eliminates all of these issues, and creates a flowing, harmonious look!

Some other techniques demonstrated by Bumble and bumble’s models can also be seen at West Coast Hair Design. Check out this video about creating waves!

Proud To Be Patriotic

Article courtesy of the friendliest Ocala insurance agency.

patrioticWe hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

What are those words worth, today? Not much, obviously. Do we still believe them? Are they still etched on our hearts? Do we still believe that ALL men are created equal? I maintain hearing that the Arabs are “not ready for freedom”. I consider that an appallingly condescending declaration.
I submit that in 1776, those words were not worth the parchment they were doodled on. Utter and also outright rubbish.
They did not become real till long years of bloody, unpleasant warfare taken a breath life right into them. They were purchased, truly, at the price of incalculable human suffering.
And as the gentleman mentions at the beginning of his item, they did not use just as to every American for a long, long time. Not to the Irish, neither to women, neither to Jews, neither Catholics, neither blacks, neither non-landowners. This experiment we call America truly did ‘light a fire in the minds of men’.
It became a sign to others, despite all its imperfections, because it was much better compared to what had actually come in the past. This glorious desire: this freedom. It continues to be an imperfectly-realized perfect, because human beings are still flawed and also we bring all our transgressions and also weaknesses with us on this quest. However we are significantly improved for having gotten to past our baser selves, for having dared to desire. We are still improving. And so will the rest of the globe, if we could discover the courage and also the willpower to help them. We are on a roadway to the stars, however we proceed one faltering action each time.

Do we still believe them? Are they still etched on our hearts? Do we still believe that ALL men are created equal? It continues to be an imperfectly-realized perfect, because human beings are still flawed and also we bring all our transgressions and also weaknesses with us on this quest. We are still improving.
