Star is a stylist at Rockit Hair Studio and she’s incredible! As a Vanity Specialist, Star believes your outward appearance can be a positive reflection of your inner beauty which she would like to accentuate to its fullest potential.
So, now that you’ve seen what she’s done to herself imagine what she can do to you!

I recently learned how to use blush and bronzer to contour and I’m in love. It’s become one of those things I can’t live without. I even bought myself a new blush brush this weekend. (At Target, $4.00, it’s great) So, click on the picture above to read an article Refinery29 just published about blushes and bronzers.
I usually use this set from ELF cosmetics. (Click on the pic to buy yourself one!) I use one of the top two bronzers and usually the blushes on the left hand side. If it’s night time or depending on what I’m wearing I may wear a blush on the right side.
What are your favorite bronzers, blushes and brushes?
Everyone’s favorite day of the week!
So after seeing that awesome clutch in last weeks throwback I found this one
At Barrett Attic, a thrift store on Lomas and Washington, for $5 and it’s real leather!
Ok moving on.
Here’s your TT video:
and here is your picture
This is Hi Tona and her best friend Jess back in middle school. I know, you’re thinking, “WTF! She’s running this blog, crap!” But there’s hope. You gotta have faith. It all works out in the end. Ugly ducklings become swans and little girls who wear boy clothes grow up to women with some sense of style.
I’d like to point out that Hi Tona (in the 2nd picture) still wearing a man’s shirt just with a little more grace and a lot more style.
Ok. This weekend was busy, busy, busy. Hi Tona’s goddess of a stylist, Scarlett Red (who owns Rockit Hair Studio), flew out to Vegas for the International Beauty Festival.
Yes, IBS, we all got the gross reference. Orbit Salon had a beauty even and fundraiser. It was Albuquerque Comic Expo and KarateExplosion’s birthday. So, here is our photo dump from the weekend
I got these wedges at Target for $8.00. They’re super comfy but a little unstable. (I rolled my ankle)
Little brother @DanicinMHJ, rocking the Teal, corduroy shorts.
The Ladies of Rockit Hair Studio and models from the IBS.
This is Liz, she was one of the models at Orbit Hair Salon on Saturday. Shannon Vigil, the owner, styled Liz’s hair.
This is Cory and his awesome pants.
And this is Keila and her awesome hair. Cory styled Keila’s hair for the event on Saturday.
Make up artist Lauren Atkinson.
This is Constance, she was Laura’s make up model. I love her blush!
This is Shannon Vigil, the owner of Orbit Salon. She also styled Liz’s hair.
The new shirt I picked up with the wedges. Another $8 buy!
So excited! We also got to see Stan Lee!
People really commit at these things. I can only imagine it’s hot as hell under that costume and this heat.
And this was what we came home to at the end of Saturday.
It was also KarateExplosion’s 3rd Birthday!!
My day job is keeping me from blog! I have some pics to post from the weekend and I’m going to start doing a make-up Monday post. Stay tuned and hopefully it will all be up this evening!
Tomorrow in Nob Hill Orbit Salon is having an event. There’s going to be all kinds of goodies and Hi Tona will be there!! 4-7pm! Check it out
La Hi Tona is going to start doing theme days so let us know what themes you want to see. Today is “Throwback Thursday”! If you want to be featured send us an old school picture!
Now, play the song so you get the full effect.
Today’s featured throwbackees are…(drumroll please)…
My Momma and her best friend LW.
This is a foto from when they went to go see Cameo. Yeah, you read that right and they got to hang out with them. Jealous much?
I’m pretty sure most of the stuff they’re wearing is back in style. I mean, how many ways can I want that white clutch? It’s awesome and I bet it was real leather.
See, this for sale right now. (Click the pic to go to the site)
Our girl over at Nouveau Cheap just posted up an awesome list of make up and beauty goodies on sale at CVS pharmacies. So, I only know of 1 here Burque, over on Montgomery and San Mateo. Are there any others?
This list is good nationwide so go check it out even if you’re not here in the 505!
The word eyeliner sounds like such a simple word, so easy. But eyeliner can be a tricky beast. Gel, pencil, liquid, colors and that doesn’t even touch on shape, the top or top and bottom, inside the bottom lash line.
I recommend ELF products, you can get a great variety, great quality and they’re not too pricey. You can find ELF online at the ELF website or at Target.
