I love Monday’s

Some people dread when Mondays rear it’s ugly head around the corner, but for me, Mondays are my rest days. I use my time to catch up on sleep, read and respond to emails, and reset my brain. Summer time is finally ending, it has been a busy one and I am thankful that it is almost September. My kiddos started school today, and I cant believe how fast they are growing up!
I had to rest because this weekend was full of facepainting and pinup hair! I had the pleasure of facepainting at the Pridefest here in Norfolk on Saturday! I was there for 6 hours! I saw a few friends and even ran into an old friend from high school!
I wish I had more pics, but was just too busy! But I found some of these online. I heard Deborah Cox singing and everyone was dancing and having a great time.
I even met a few people that follow me on my instagram, and they made me feel like a lil celebrity, which totally made my day.
I got up early on both saturday and sunday to do some fun pinup hair on a young model, Madison, she was the official Pin Up Girl for the Hot Rod Show in Hampton.
We are having our Grand Opening of LAHCIA STUDIOS this coming Saturday and I am so excited about it. Even though we don’t have everything the exact way we want, it is a working progress and we want to go ahead and have it. The sooner the better! Now that the summer is winding down, I can shift my focus on the shop. It’s time to let people know we are open for business and ready to help you with all your beauty and art needs!
I have started painting our windows at the shop until we get our vinyl up. I haven’t been up there much due to my busy schedule…but this is what I have up so far. (Don’t judge me, this is my first time painting  a window display.
I’m watching The Emmy’s and just enjoying my night. I have a huge week ahead of me, so I am off to finish my night and I hope you have a good night and great rest of the week!
XOXOX, Cecilia

Layla Glam Squad Grand Opening

Last night was the Grand Opening Party for Layla Glam Squad! We all got ready, got our models ready with some crazy avant garde hair and makeup and some body paint of course! We had a lot of amazing people help participate in our event with a caterer and a few local vendors specializing in hair, jewelry, accessories and candied apples! We got all dolled up and was ready to mix and mingle and introduce ourselves as the new salon in town!


Here I am with the lovely ladies, Nita and Ariel, a hair stylist and assistant who specializes in braids.


Here I am with one of the owners, Tasha!

To my left, is Keren who is also a makeup artist with Layla Glam and we are with our fabulous models who let us have free reign over their look for tonight with makeup, hair and body paint.



I scooped up a pair of really BIG safety Pin earrings from this jewelry vendor, “Hot Trendz Earrings”

These custom snapbacks and accessories were made by Mirna Calero representing Jacqueline De Nadie.

You can find her custom 757 snapbacks and cute bowtie necklaces on Facebook.




I painted some fun and girly designs on myself and our models for the night and we all had a great time. I even took our first client before we opened up! So things are off to a great start! I am excited for the future and what is to come!

I am turning in for the night, but I wanted to share some of the images from last night!

Have a great night and see you soon in the next post or in the salon!

Xoxox, Cecilia Marie
