Salon Spotlight: Color BarMagazine Street has slowly transformed into THE shopping and dining district in New Orleans. On par with Boston’s Newbury Street, it boasts interior design shops, upscale clothing boutiques and art galleries, as well as hair salons and day spas. One standout is Color Bar Salon, located at 2039 Magazine Street. Opening the Lower Garden District gem six years ago was a bit of a leap of faith for owner and New Orleans native Daniel Walker. Color Bar was one of the first businesses to put down roots in a section of Magazine Street that hadn’t yet transformed into the hip, eclectic retail hotspot it is today.
Walker has worked hard to create a relaxing haven for his clients, and it shows. Color Bar, with its fresh, polished, modern ambience, is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Magazine Street. Color Bar stylists use the highly recommended Italian color and haircare line Davines.
Color Bar is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 am-6 pm and Saturday 10 am-4 pm.

As the weather cools and our wardrobes change, our skincare routines need an update as well. Don’t forget to put a thicker body moisturizer on the drier parts of your skin, such as elbows and knees.

The best beauty tricks are natural and free. Getting enough sleep (for most people this means at least six hours every night) and drinking plenty of water will help with everything from dark circles to dry skin to maintaining a healthy weight. So drink to your health and beauty!
Summer is officially over, and it’s time to rethink your foundation. Say goodbye to tinted moisturizers and sheer coverage. Instead, think smooth, silky medium coverage that serves as a backdrop for fall’s deeper hues.
In addition to providing great coverage, Lancôme Teint Visionnaire corrects dark spots, helps with fine lines, and comes with a Precision Spot Corrector that conceals dark circles and all types of imperfections.
