2016 Del Mar Opening Day Hats Contest is coming…

Del Mar Opening Day Hats Contest

Let’s get this party started!

Friday, July 15th, we light this candle. If you have an idea for an Outrageous hat, or you are ready to knock everyone out with the Most Glamorous, Best Fascinator, amazing Best Flowers hat, or one of those Horse Racing, track inspired giddy-ups, then you need to JOIN THE HATS CONTEST and win some serious prizes!

Again this year Deena Von Yokes is the Creative Director for the Opening Day Hats Contest. Right there with her will be the bevy of beautiful models, spectacular hats and fashions that are sure to be stunners. The Studio Savvy Glam Squad will be the fillies charging to the finish to make all these looks complete with hair, make-up and styling directed by Deena. The hats are created by the extraordinary milliner, Christine A Moore. Remaining wardrobe is going to be by local fashion designer sensations, Olga Sanchez, Jemima Dutra, and TRE Boutique shop keep stylist, Sheree Vihon.

Whether you come to watch, or take home the Grand Prize, you are guaranteed to have a great time. Visit the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club web site for full details. We can’t wait to see you!

weddingpic6Want your hair to stay all night at the next wedding/event you attend? We have some Savvy Tips for you:

  • up styles, whether it’s braiding, twisting, or knotting, should guarantee your style to last even through your best moves on the dance floor
  • styles hold best on day-old hair so keep in mind, it’s best to wash your hair the day before you get all dolled up to witness those “I Do’s”

Wedding season is upon us and we at Studio Savvy know how crazy the wedding whirlwinds can get but we are here to help! The best way to make things go smoothly on the Big Day is to book ahead. Trials are SO important to reassure the bride, and everyone in her life, that the hair and makeup are exactly as she wants so she can feel like the most beautiful woman in the world when all eyes are on her.  Make sure to book your favorite makeup artist and/or stylist(s) in advance! The Glam Squad at Studio Savvy has everything you could possibly need when it comes to feeling beautiful on your wedding day or at the next big event you attend; and we want to make sure that we can be prepared to make every woman feel beautiful on the Big Day!weddingpic8weddingpic4

Studio Savvy would also like to let you all know that we were voted FINE Magazine’s favorite North County San Diego Wedding Merchant in the beauty field.  A huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you who took the time to vote for us and make that possible!weddingpic3weddingpic7

Glam Squad Shines as Guest Artists at Paul Mitchell!

PMDeenaKylaPMGroup2 PMAllModels

Studio Savvy is ecstatic to share with all of you how wonderful our experience at Paul Mitchell the School San Diego was. And as promised, we have many pictures to share from our event. As guest artists, we were able to share our knowledge and our skills with these new and curious members of our hair world. Deena did a phenomenal job, not only at demonstrating and explaining a beautiful haircut on one of our own, Kyla, but also at leading the discussion in such a graceful yet very fun, inspirational manner. Kassidy was great in explaining her color application as well as touching on certain tips and tricks she recommends to any colorist in the business. Victoria and Brooke did an awesome job not only on the physical presentation of their up styles, but also in explaining their techniques in how to achieve a similar look, as well as interacting with the students and Deena and Kassidy to keep the presentation entertaining and educational. We are all so proud of each other and the hard work we have put into making this a great experience for the future professionals at Paul Mitchell, and for ourselves. Please, stay tuned for our next Glam Squad adventure!

Twas the night before Bing Crosby Opening Day…

And all through the race track, not a creature was stirring, not even a horse. No, not even a horse, but at 3:30am Deena Von Yokes and the Studio Savvy Glam Squad were wide eyed and preparing for a full Opening Day Fashion Frenzy. Why? Because “Fashion Never Sleeps!“, especially with Studio Savvy!
