Mindful Manicures?

Salons around the country are tapping into the self-care movement by providing guided meditations along with that “I’m Not A Waitress Red”. The owner of Sundays, one such salon, said that she got the idea for adding meditation to their offerings after clients repeatedly told her that coming to a nail salon was the only time they had for themselves. “It dawned on me that I could give them a chance to not only look good but also feel serene through meditation,” she said. Expect to see this combo pack of serene mind and banging nails in more salons around the country.

Mash Up

It’s a rare case of the mobile game meets cosmetics brand. And it proves that a partnership may not have to make sense to everyone if it generates sales.

Recently, in China, the extremely popular Tencent mobile game “Honor of Kings” (Western version titled “Arena of Valor”) and high-end cosmetics brand M.A.C. released five co-branded limited-edition lipsticks that were available on Tmall, the M.A.C. website, and a WeChat mini-program. All five lipsticks sold out, with 14,00 pre-orders in 24 hours. Love the cross culture uniqueness of this concept – how might it play out in the US?

The Queen and Paris is Burning

In observation of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising this Pride month, restorations of these  two masterful documentaries have come to theaters: Jennie Livingston’s Paris is Burning (1990) was released June 14, and Frank Simon’s The Queen (1968) will be out June 28.  More than dazzling entertainment, these films provide a critical look at the challenges marginalized people took on in politics, gender, race and sex during the times in which they lived. These films clearly display the cycle we all now know so well: how underground performers transform popular culture into art, and how that then is returned to popular culture in a whole new form. (#streetwear, anyone??)  Go see these now!
