Start of construction, July 2011
January, 2012
As many of you know by now, the renovations of our storefront are almost finished (signage and awning are next), and we couldn't be happier with the results!  We think it looks spectacular, but now it's time to do the inside!
 
In late January of 2012, we will begin construction inside the salon, but work will be limited to Sundays and Mondays when we are closed.  Although the crew will be cleaning up as they go, we apologize for any inconveniences in advance.  We will be updating our reception area, (including a new desk, seating, and displays), changing our color scheme,  replacing the wood floors which were damaged due to the outside construction, replacing our sinks and shampoo chairs, completely renovating our rest room, and enlivening many other esthetics throughout the salon.
 
I would personally like to extend my thanks to all of our loyal clients, friends, and families who have been so patient during this arduous renovation process.  We are very excited to get all of the work done to make your visits even more enjoyable in the coming years.  Thank you for all your support and understanding!

Almost finished, December 2011

I've heard many clients and friends over the years say that, while they like how they look with makeup on,  they don't wear much very often, itf at all,  because they don't really know how to aplly it properly.  A lot of women tend to think of applying makeup as an annoyance, when it should be a source of fun, adventure, and a boost to your self esteem. Let's face it, ladies, when you look better you feel better, no?  And if you can spend 5 to 10 minutes in the morning to make yourself feel good all day, why not do it?
 
With these thoughts in mind, I started to create a section on our website to teach women the right way to apply thier makeup, as well as giving some time-saving tips to help make your makeup application a simple, easy, and fun task.  MAKEUP 101 is a work in progress, and I will continue to add more information, enhance and expound on parts I've already covered, and introduce you to new makeup products that you may not have tried before or even known they existed.  So if you're looking for some makeup help, tips or tricks, check out our MAKEUP 101 section!
 
Any questions or tips you want to share?  Email me at:  admin@madavewest.com.

They help to nourish, repair, reinforce, and protect the essential internal and external structures of hair. There are 6 tubes in each box, but only use 1/3 to 1/2 a tube per treatment.
