Halloween's back, Baby - and we're celebrating all month long.
Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 9.
From healthy hair to dewy complexions, this summer's hottest trends are all about achieving that natural, effortless glow. Expect to see more barely-there makeup looks, multitasking skin care technology and high-quality hair care botanicals. Summer is looking up now that the local experts we adore are - finally! - back to help us get our glow back.
Ok, baby girl. This could either be your sexiest summer yet - or a beautifully tragic mess. While we've been hiding in quarantine, our body hair has become unruly, our roots have given everything away, and our nails have been begging for a better stylist than the nearest child that's old enough to be trusted with nail polish.
"Why wait?" is our 2020 motto when it comes to self care. We're no longer hoarding the "fancy" lotions for a special occasion, we're dabbing perfume before we head to Trader Joe's, we're booking the massages because we need one - now. These treatments "get us" - providing near-instant satisfaction.
Today's high-tech answers to your most pressing skin concerns are less invasive and more effective than ever.
HAIR & MAKEUP
Maybe it was all those too-close-up Zoom calls that got everyone thinking about their pore size - because even less-devout skincare fanatics have upped their game. Here are three winning strategies you may want to add to your regimen.
Social media has made one thing very clear: It's the start of #HotGirlSummer, which - in Santa Clarita - generally translates to the literal truth that we'll all be dripping in sweat for the next three to six months. Feel hot, not hot, with these beauty finds.
Whether it's getting all dressed up (And going nowhere!) or treating veins, these beauty tips have bite!
Ladies, let's get real. #QuarantineLife isn't our best look. With every fallen lash extension, our eyes look more and more like dead spiders. Not even a messy bun can make four-day-old hair look cute anymore. And after weeks of a strict sweatpants dress code, who can be sure our jeans still fit?
To be a Beauty, Tame your Beasts: Thinning hair, bumpy bits, acne, unsightly veins? We all have our complaints - and if your confidence is taking a hit, hit up one of these pros.
Last-minute Halloween fun - don't miss these family to-do's!

"In 10 years, I've had eight surgeries on my bladder - seven of them were to fix the first," says Deborah. "I was feeling down, not feeling myself. I decided it was time to invest in my looks - give me a lift, you know? That's when I scheduled a brow and eye lift with what review sites said was the best plastic surgeon in my area."

How am I supposed to go from DD to... nothing?

"I was only 29 years old when I had my breast implants done," says Anne. "At the time, you wanted them big and round. That was the look - very 'Pamela Anderson!' They were DDD and the doctor told me they'd be 'good' for about 13 years - but I was 60 before I had them removed - I dreaded another surgery."
"I've always had small eyes," says Kerry, 62, of Santa Clarita. "So when my eyelids started drooping, it was dramatic. I looked tired all the time. My mom would say, 'You look exhausted!' - but I wasn't! It was pointless to wear eyeshadow - it would just disappear under the hooded part of my upper eye. The sides of my eyes even started slanting down, changing the look of my face."

WEDDINGS & EVENTS
What's that loud noise you hear? It's the near-constant phone ringing happening at event locations, catering kitchens, rental offices and more across town - and the country. Pent-up demand has couples and planners booking vendors at a record speed, eager to celebrate their special day with family and friends close by.
Our weddings and events are going to look different for a while - and that's ok. We're not going to stop celebrating - we'll just celebrate in new ways. Here's our start.
When the world stopped, love did not. From backyard weddings with masked officiants to Zoom-broadcasted elopements and just about everything in between, engaged couples aren't putting their wedding dreams on hold - they're redefining what a wedding is today.
Only the very best - that was the criteria for our annual Wedding & Event Preferred Vendor Guide. These are the professionals and the companies we trust for our own special events, the phone numbers we eagerly hand out when asked for referrals, the Instagrams we follow for daily inspiration on how to make "best" even better.
When it comes to one of the most important days of your life, you want to know that you have the best of the best in your corner. These are the tried and the true - the pros with five-star reviews longer than your in-law's guest lists. They'll quickly become your bridal BFFs.
Have a hard time thinking about candy canes, stockings and tree toppers when we're still a month out from Halloween and it's 90 degrees outside? Too bad - at least, if you want to cinch a premium date with a popular venue or caterer for your tinsel-hanging party. Now's the time to make the calls, book the space, then sip confidently on your iced pumpkin-spiced latte.

Gifts they'll adore as much as you.
They say, "It's the thought that counts" - and that's never been more true than when you pop over to a local shop to cross your last-minute gifts off your list. Your Santa Clarita neighbor entrepreneurs have thoughtfully gathered the greatest gifts - so return the favor and support community businesses that, in turn, support so many.
Yes, those Amazon lightning deals are tempting, but nothing beats the thrill of finding a much more unique - and vastly more personal - gift in a neighborhood shop. Plus, when you shop local, you give three times - to the lucky recipient, to the neighborhood small-business owner and to our community at large, via your sales tax. (If you have to pay it, you might as well benefit from it!). 'Tis the season to shop Santa Clarita!
