Update your Style with Andrea Lauren and Ashley Lauren of Alba Organic Beauty Studio and Cincy Style Bar (CSB)

Listen to the interview.

After years of working on-set in production with top-tier clients, Celebrity makeup artists, Andrea Lauren and Ashley Lauren launched Alba Organic Beauty Studio and Cincy Style Bar (CSB), the Midwest’s first blowout and makeup bar. They transformed the corner of Drake Ave and Wasson Road into an organic/natural/non-toxic beauty haven. Alba and CSB [Cincy Style Bar] were created to serve both the express and full service organic beauty needs of Cincinnati’s hip, trendy and green locals.

Andrea and Ashley joined me on Amy’s Table to talk about easy style updates for with hair, makeup, nails and skincare.

Q: What are some hot trends this spring for Hair?

A: There are many trends this Spring when it comes to hair. If you are looking for a change try some highlights or even better try out an ombre. When it comes to cutting, short angular cuts are the way to go as well as deep side parts. For styling; try out a Top Knot, Braid or Ponytail. Also temporary colors are a hit this spring. Try colors like pink, lilacs, neon and even shimmer.

Q: What are the trends for Makeup?

A: Makeup trends this Spring include Bold Lips with Simple Eyes, maybe just use some Mascara. You can even do the reverse and do a Bold Winged Liner with Simple Lips. A hot color this season is coral. Corals are showing up on the eyes, lips and cheeks. Neon colors as well are also a big hit, think Crayola.

Q: What’s new with nails?

A: This season’s manicures are all about nudes, purples and neons. Also textured nails and nail art are big this Spring. A fun manicure is a great way to help you celebrate spring.

Q: What can you tell us about Skincare this Spring?

A: The fresh face is in this season. Think tinted moisturizer. This will let your natural skin shine through as well as look real and healthy.
