Hamadi Beauty is a haircare line that promotes a healthy and modern view on the approach to hair products by never compromising quality by using artificial ingredients. Jamal Hammadi is the founder and creator of Hamadi Beauty, and he was born and raised in California. He says that his creative vision and passion is the result of, “growing up in a creative household and was greatly influenced by his mother’s Parisian style, and also by his father, a gifted chef who worked with the Hollywood elite.” He has a solid reputation for creating amazingly glamorous hairstyles, and he has had his work featured on covers like Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Jane, and InStyle. He’s worked with stars such as Drew Barrymore, Linda Evangelista, Sharon Stone, Naomi Watts, just to name a few. Hamadi Beauty is Jamal’s answer to the absence of organic hair products. All products are “tested on actresses, never animals.”

This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! This program began 1985, and through its tremendous awareness efforts, the mammography rates for women 50 or older have double, and the amount of deaths related to breast cancer have declined. One of the purposes of the organization and month long awareness promotion is to encourage all women to screen and prevent breast cancer by doing breast self-examinations once a month as well as seeing a doctor and having a mammogram done regularly.
Breast cancer increases with age (rare in women under age 35), but it’s never too early to start preventative measures and talking with your doctor about getting tested and how to reduce your risk.

MAC COSMETICS LAUNCHES NEW LASHES
CREATED BY CELEBRITY MAKE-UP ARTIST AND LASH DESIGNER CHRISTINA SMITH
Lashes have reached a whole new level No longer are lashes just for special nights out or glamorous events, they have become an everyday staple being worn by women of all ages.
This fall, MAC takes Lashes to the extreme whether it’s a natural effect or a more dramatic look you want, it’s easily achieved with the re-launch of MAC Lashes. Acclaimed celebrity lash designer Christina Smith who has designed custom lashes for Hollywood leading ladies including Liza Minnelli, Kate Hudson, Hayden Panettiere and Gisele Bundchen, created 11 exclusive Lash styles with original, new features and streamlined packaging.
NEW LASH FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Color – MAC Lashes have a unique blend of black and brown natural hairs, so they blend more naturally with your own lashes. Great for even the fairest of lashes.
- Clear Band – MAC Lashes feature a ground-breaking thin, clear band for easy application and flexibility. Lashes can move, bend and blend.
- Shorter Width – Say goodbye to trimming false lashes to fit. MAC’s newly designed Lashes have a shorter width, so they fit comfortably to the length of your natural lash line.
- Intentional Imperfection – No two lashes are the same or perfectly symmetrical. MAC created intentional imperfections in each lash design to create a more natural effect.
NEW LASH PACKAGING:
The new MAC Lashes are packaged in a unique white tray that holds the lashes around a circular post. The post is used for ease of identification, with the left lash on the left side, and the right lash on the right. The white inner tray slides into a clear outer case and locks into place for secure portability. In addition to beautifully displaying the lashes, the new case also allows for easy storage and reuse.
MAC Lashes will last through approximately 3-6 wears, with proper care. When removing Lashes from packaging or the lash line, gently lift one end and peel off slowly and carefully to keep Lashes intact. Store lashes in a cool, dry area as humidity or warm temperatures (often found in the bathroom) may compromise the curl of the lash.
