I recently visited friends in Birmingham, Alabama (YES, you read that right) and went for a beauty day in a popular local salon called Salon U (voted by Elle Magazine 2012 as TOP SALON in ALABAMA). The salon is massive; I believe two floors, maybe more. The service was impeccable!!! And so was the salon. I’ve been modeling for nearly 10 years now and had many photo shoots and worked with several artists and stylists. Birmingham is up there with one of my favorite blowouts and makeup applications. Almost forgot the BEST MANICURE ever. It just goes to show, never judge a book by its cover. New York City has all the flash but sometimes you find shining stars in places you least expect. Sorry for judging you Birmingham. Please forgive me.

“Bernadett is more than an image consultant — she was able to take my outlook on life and myself from ok to awesome in one short session. Her posing lessons are also great for everyone, in every aspect of life. Even though it seems silly, my drivers license picture went from being horrible to wow — it’s amazing how something so simple can be such a boost to your self-esteem. It stays with you. Thank you Bern!”
One of the first things I tell my clients when we talk about their style is: When someone meets you for the first time it takes them 7 seconds to judge you and 10 more meetings for them to change their opinion of you. Why not get it right the first few seconds? Image is a powerful tool. As a professional model and image consultant I know this to be true. I always need to put my best self forward but find that there must be a balance so … Read More »
I recently went shopping at men’s retailer, Hugo Boss with a client at the soho location of NYC. I walked in and was greeted with a scent and immediately blurted, “The smell in this store smells like a sexy man.”
Here’s me walking in on a day I wasn’t with my client just so I could smell it again.
It smells like a man who is responsible, confident, wears color and has a lil callous on his hands. It’s yumma lamma ding dong ™ this scent will make your mouth water.
My client immediately said he wants a bottle of whatever they were spraying. After a bit of investigation, I found out that Hugo Boss has a scent ventilator installed and the scent is top secret for employees. With a bit more digging, I got the inside scoop that Hugo Boss will be making this into a candle come the holidays. CANDLES ARE IN STORES NOW.
I want 10 PLEASE. I want every man on the subway wearing this. I want every ladies bathroom to smell like this. I want you to have one, so come the holiday season I will for sure be recommending this for your home.
