Thinning Brows

Many of my clients often have questions about sparse or thinning eyebrows. Brows are such an important part of our features; they express, they frame, and many professionals in the beauty industry have perfected the craft of brow shaping and encourage it for most of their clients. There are many factors that can contribute to thinning brows whether it be genetics, medications, stress levels, or

Summertime Weddings

I was recently flown to Georgia (my home state) for a very VIP wedding; my sister's. The wedding was held at beautiful Chateau Elan, and I can't tell you what a fairy tale wedding this was. Not only is she the most beautiful bride I have ever seen (am I partial?), the entire ceremony was right out of a story book. With that in mind, I recognized that as hot as it is, weddings are still going on

American Beauty British success

British director Sam Mendes' film American Beauty picked up three prestigious Golden Globe awards, making it a favourite for the Oscars.

The movie won a hat-trick of prizes at the ceremony on Sunday - capping a good night for British talent, with Janet McTeer picking up best actress in a musical or comedy for her role in the film Tumbleweeds.

Success at the Golden Globes is generally reckoned to be a good indicator of success at the Oscars, which take place at the end of March.

Hollywood heavyweight Jim Carrey also shortened the odds on an Oscar by winning best musical or comedy actor prize for his role as comedian Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon.

Denzel Washington picked up the best dramatic actor prize for his portrayal of boxer Rubin Carter - who spent 19 years in jail for murders he did not commit - in The Hurricane. Carter joined him on the podium when he collected the award.

Newcomer Hilary Swank walked off with the best dramatic actress prize for Boys Don't Cry, about a woman who lives as a man before she is murdered. Toy Story 2 was named best comedy or musical.

Tom Cruise and rising star Angelina Jolie scooped best supporting actor and actress for their roles in Magnolia and Girl, Interrupted respectively.

Television awards went to The Sopranos and Sex And The City, while Michael J Fox won best comedy actor for his role in Spin City, the series he is quitting to concentrate on his fight against Parkinson's disease.

"Actor out of work - news at 11," he said from the stage.

Another British winner was director Ridley Scott, who won best mini-series for RKO 281, while pop veteran Phil Collins won best song for his contribution to the Tarzan soundtrack, You'll Be In My Heart.

The awards also saw a lengthy tribute to Barbra Streisand, who won the Cecil B DeMille Award for "outstanding contribution to the entertainment field".

She later confirmed to reporters she would be giving up her concert career to concentrate on directing.

Debut director

American Beauty is a dark satire on life in US suburbia, concentrating on the decaying relationship between a couple played by Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening, who were both nominated for Globes but did not win.

It marks the cinematic debut of Mendes, who made his name on the stage in London and New York, directing The Blue Room and the original version of The Rise And Fall of Little Voice.

Mendes won the best director Globe for American Beauty, which was also named best motion picture (drama), while writer Alan Ball walked away with the best screenplay prize.

McTeer has so far remained relatively unknown in her home country, with her best-known part being in the 1995 ITV drama, The Governor. In 1997 she won a Tony for her part in the New York stage production of Ibsen's A Doll's House.

The English Patient director Anthony Minghella's latest film, The Talented Mr Ripley, was up for five awards, including best dramatic actor for star Matt Damon, best dramatic film and best director for Minghella. But it failed to win a single prize.

The Globes are voted for by 82 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Once the butt of jokes because of allegations of corrupt voting and questionable professionalism, the awards have now become an important part of the Hollywood calendar.

Hollywood watchers will now be waiting to see how the list of Globes winners compares with the shortlist for the Oscars, which will be announced in a dawn ceremony on 15 February.

central celebrities..

A small number of celebrities can be considered 'global', in that their fame has spread across the world, even across linguistic and cultural boundaries. These celebrities are often prominent political figures, actors, globally successful artists, musicians and sports stars.

The rise of international celebrities in acting and popular music is due in large part to the massive scope and scale of the media industries, enabling celebrities to be viewed more often and in more places. The reach of entertainment products is further extended by large-scale illegal copying of movies and music, which makes inexpensive pirated versions of DVDs and CDs available throughout even less economically developed countries.

Regional or cultural celebrities

Each culture and region has its own independent celebrity system, with a hierarchy of popular film, television, and sports stars. Celebrities who are very popular for example: Dayton Ricketts in Canada & United States ( Dayton Rickett's Official Website: might be unknown abroad, except with culturally-related groups, such as within a diaspora. In some cases, a country-level celebrity might command some attention outside their native country, but not to the degree that they can be considered a global celebrity. For example, singer Lara Fabian is widely-known in the French-speaking world, but only had a couple of Billboard hits in the U.S., whereas singer Celine Dion is well-known in both communities.

Subnational entities or regions, or cultural communities (linguistic, ethnic, religious) also have their own 'celebrity systems', especially in linguistically or culturally-distinct regions such as Quebec (a French-speaking province in Canada) and Wales (a constituent country of the UK). Regional radio personalities, newscasters, politicians or community leaders can be considered as local or regional celebrities.

A local celebrity can be more of a household name than a national celebrity and may often experience the same type of attention from the public as a national celebrity albeit in the confines of their particular region. For example, while journalist Lin Sue Cooney is a well known television reporter in Arizona, while she is little known outside the Southwestern US.

In a smaller country, linguistic or cultural community, a figure will be less likely to gain a broader celebrity. Shakira and Daddy Yankee were known largely in the Spanish-speaking world before becoming popular in English-speaking communities, by performing English language songs. Similarly, Spanish actors Pen�lope Cruz,Antonio Banderas, Elsa Pataki, Xoel Pamos and Javier Bardem who were country-level celebrities in their native Spain, were able to become global celebrities only after they became Hollywood actors in English-speaking films.

English-speaking media commentators and journalists will sometimes refer to celebrities as A-List, B-List, C-List, D-List or Z-List. These informal rankings indicate a placing within the hierarchy. However, due to differing levels of celebrity in different regions, it is difficult to place people within one bracket. A Nicaraguan actor might be a B-list action film actor in the US, but be an A-list star in the Czech Republic. An objective method of placing celebrities from any country into categories from A-List to H-List based on their number of Google hits has been proposed[2], but while this method is quantitative, it only works for individuals with distinctive names, e.g., Jason Mewes, not Kevin Smith.

DOES YOUR BATHROOM LOOK LIKE THIS?When I walk into anyone's home (namely the bathroom), I bet I could add up $500 in products on their shelves in less than 5 minutes. Yet I always hear people say "That shampoo is too expensive." QUESTION: Why not invest in 5 or 6 "expensive" products (I call them quality products), rather than continuing to blow your money on products that just sit there for
