Covering fashion, photography, travel, and issues, Tegan brings the true art of lifestyle alive through her thoughtful stories, fashion information, and photos.  In addition to her print publication, Ms. Brideson brings her love of design, styling, and art into the spotlight and delivers thoughtful and imaginative information related to living a full and beautiful life.

Dustin Hajek loves…

Stylist and Brow Specialist Dustin Hajek returns to us from visiting Bumble University in New York City this week with exciting enthusiasm for hairdressing.  As part of our Educator-duo, Dustin is our Team Leader who translates style, product knowledge, and inspiration from The House of Bumble to our salon in Omaha.  Doing this, Dustin keeps our hairdressers excited, motivated, and creative.  While he was in New York, he was on the look-out for trends and up-coming fall ideas.  Below, Dustin has added in some of his new obsessions for life.

His first obsession is with s’mores cupcakes at Peel’s in New York.  This dainty restaurant is known for their dessert menu, but serve up excellent lunch and dinner as well.  On the corner of Bowery and East 2nd Street, this hotspot can take care of your sweet tooth easily (that is, if you have enough room left over from dinner)!  Being featured in the NYTimes, by Urbanspoon, and being Zagat rated speak highly of this East Village eatery.  Check out the story from the New York Times and swing by for a cupcake or corndogs the next time you’re in the neighborhood.  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/03/dining/reviews/03rest.html

Another of Dustin’s recent obsessions is the return to luxe fabrics and clothing embellishments for fall and winter.  In the up-coming collections of designers such as Elie Saab, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, and Nina Ricci, you will find fabrics with pattern, velvet, and embroidery.  Jewels, gems, and beading add to the richness of designs hitting the runway for the fall/winter 2011-2012 season.  To preview upcoming looks, or check out past runway shows, www.style.com feeds your inner fashionista and keeps you in-the-know when it comes to clothes, shoes, jewelry, or the catwalk.

When it comes to hair, Dustin is in love with any type of texture.  Beachy waves, natural curl, or a really great fashion perm really makes him happy.  One thing he is grooving on is pulling hair up and away into messy chignons, ponytails, top-knots, or simply wrapping it up with a scarf, bandanna, or handkerchief.  Nichole Richie in the picture above takes an Alexander McQueen scarf   it around her forehead to keep bangs at bay and make a fashion statement, all at the same time.  Look in your closet (or grandma’s closet for that matter) and start wrapping your hair in bold colors, patterns, or in CHEVRON!

Chevron is Dustin’s biggest crush right now.  Missoni for Target is slated to have great finds at reasonable prices beginning in September!  Get a chevron rug and put it in a room with a monochromatic chevron painted wall while wrapping yourself in a chevron blanket sipping out of a chevron embellished coffee mug.  The timeless pattern can be translated anywhere and is being found everywhere.  Keep your eye on www.target.com for Missoni’s up-coming collection and check out the Internet for everything chevron!!
