As a client, you are greeted with warm smiles and hellos from a friendly, professional team of stylists and we can’t forget about the champagne! Their main goal is to make you feel beautiful and fabulous from start to finish. Whether you are coming from the gym, taking a break from shopping, or glamming up for a black tie event, there are a variety of styles for your perfect blow out!

Blo Wilmington

“A blow-out is terrific for special occasions, but has also become a regular part of many of our clients’ weekly routines, since our styles can last anywhere from 3-5 days”, says owner Kerry Welsh (pictured below). “When you come to Blo, not only will you leave looking and feeling fabulous, but with champagne, good music, and a clean, modern environment – we provide much needed “me time”. And with appointments available as early as 7am (and walk-ins starting at 9am), many clients have found styling on the way to the office or after an early workout to be a perfect way to save time in an otherwise hectic day.”

The most exciting party of the year was once again a success! From Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Stone to Reese Witherspoon, the red carpet was brimming with high-end fashion.  We saw a-line skirts, extended v-necks and an array of color that set the fashion bar high for the rest of 2017. We LOVED our stunning client, Lilliana Vazquez in her Hayley Paige dress that had us all in awe. Also, take a peak at which celebrities won a vote from the Social Stylate gals as best dressed.

“Gina Rodriguez’ Golden Globes outfit is a beautiful blend of flashy and classy, very reminiscent of 1920’s Hollywood & the era of flappers. The silver color of the dress perfectly compliments her skin and to top it all off- her simple hair style and silver dangle earrings look absolutely elegant.” – Rachel

“Kristen Bell has been a best dressed pick two years in a row! We loved the drama of the plunging neckline and her hair and makeup were perfection.”- Kelly

“Glitzy gowns were a big theme at last night’s show, but we found ourselves thinking they were all gaudy or uninteresting…except for Naomie Harris. She looked sexy and sophisticated. We love the plunging neckline and the pale gold shade…and those statement earrings were killer.” – Lauren

Michelle Williams
Golden Globes Best Dressed

“We imagine a lot of people hated Michelle’s look, but we love how she constantly makes unique choices. The lace off-the-shoulder dress and tied choker isn’t an ensemble that just anyone could pull off, but she nailed it. The combination paired perfectly with her pixie cut, minimum makeup, and porcelain skin.” – Lauren

Reese Witherspoon

“Resse’s look is simple and elegant for the red carpet. The color made her stand out from the rest of the crowd and showed her beautiful curves. The necklace couldn’t have been a better fit with the strapless, deep-v cut of the dress. Not to mention, she rocked the leg slit!” – Aly

Our client, Lilliana Vazquez looked absolutely stunning in her Hayley Paige dress for the live preshow on NBC. We are obsessed with the detail and color on her.

New Year, New Me: Our New Year’s Resolutions

Our team at Social Stylate waved goodbye to 2016 and welcomed 2017 with open arms! See what us gals have in mind for our New Year’s Resolutions, we are ready for all of the new beginnings and challenges along the way. Bring on 2017!

New Year's ResolutionLauren’s Resolution: 
“Since I’m having a baby this year (crazy!) I want to be better at shutting off my brain and maintaining a “be here now” philosophy: putting away the cell phone, turning off work and focusing on the moment.”

New Year Resolution Carroll’s Resolution:
“With my busy schedule I would like to make more time for yoga and travel.”

New Year Resolution: SydneySydney’s Resolution:
“I’m trying to work on embracing new experiences and trying new things.”

New Year Resolution: Kelly Kelly’s Resolution:
“I would like to work on staying more organized; starting with making a monthly, weekly, and daily to do list.”

New Year Resolution: Aly Aly’s Resolution:
“In the past years, I have always made my New Year’s Resolution about working out and getting back into shape, but never followed through. This year, I am determined to stick with my resolution by creating a workout plan, eating healthy and working towards being my happiest/best self in my personal life and with my career.”

New Year Resolution: Jordan Jordan’s Resolution:
“With my swimming career coming to an end this spring, my resolution is to focus more on living a healthy lifestyle by cooking more often and trying new healthy recipes and staying active by taking yoga classes and running.”

New Year's Resolution: ColleenColleen’s Resolutions:
“Drink more water. The implications of drinking more water go beyond just staying hydrated. It also helps curb your appetite to avoid eating from boredom. It also helps keep your skin looking bright and healthy! Also, to think more positively. It goes without saying that if your thoughts are more positive, you’re going to have a more positive life experience. Negativity consumes a lot of energy, so why waste energy on focusing on the bad when you can focus on the good!”

New Year's Resolutions: RachelRachel’s Resolution:
“Getting back to the gym and working on my fitness because it’s always been important to me and I’ve been in such a lull lately with it.. I’m excited to get back on track. I’m also going to work really hard in school and in setting up a job after graduation! My goal is to work really hard now so that future me can really benefit from it.”


Boss Lady: Gabrielle and Brittney Flank

Boss Lady is a series that shares personal insights from creative women in business.This week we chat with Gabrielle & Brittney Flank, sisters and founders of The Frosting Company, an Artisan product line that is free of gluten, parabens, sulfates, phthalates and artificial preservatives. These two inspirational ladies share their story of hardwork and dedication as young entrepreneurs all while spreading awareness.
The Frosting Company

1. Tell us about yourselves and your career.
: I am an 18 year old high school senior, Huffington Post blogger, entrepreneur, philanthropist and public speaker who promotes a message of positivity.
Brittney: I am 24 years old and I am a graduate of DeSales University with a degree in communication. I am the co-owner of the Frosting Company and enjoy spending time with my family and giving back.

2. What is a typical work day like for you ladies?
No two days are ever the same. We usually start with a morning meeting where we go over what we want to accomplish for the day. Gabrielle is a senior in high school and has to schedule time to do her school work. Brittney usually is the one to check and respond to emails. We manufacture all of our products in house and mid-day we work together on fulfilling orders.

3. Where did the inspiration behind the Frosting Company come from?
The inspiration for the Frosting Company came after Gabrielle was diagnosed with cancer. Because of Gabrielle’s diagnosis we became aware of the harmful chemicals and toxins in many of the beauty products we were using. We learned that your skin is your largest organ and after Gabrielle’s cancer diagnoses we became aware that a large percentage of what you put onto your skin is absorbed directly into your bloodstream. We wanted to design products that we felt safe using, were beneficial and that everyone could enjoy!

With our passion and love for natural products we decided to create our own line of Artisan products that are free of gluten, parabens, sulfates, phthalates and artificial preservatives.

4. Starting a company with your sister must be so exciting, how do you delegate who does what in the company?
Being sisters is a really great advantage because we know each other so well. We know each other’s strengths and weakness and can play off of that.
Gabrielle: I have always had a love and passion for science. So formulating products came naturally to me.
Brittney: I was a communications major in college and have always enjoyed the administrative, creative, and marketing aspects.

The Frosting Company

5. Can you explain how your products are made and what makes them so different from other products?
Our story is one that people can really relate to. It is important to us to use organic, fair-trade, food grade and natural ingredients. We use the finest and most delectable ingredients in order to create a luxurious experience each and every time. We wanted to create a line that was great for your skin and that people enjoyed using at any age.

6. What has been your most successful form of marketing so far?
Social media by far has been our most successful form of marketing. It is amazing how technology allows people to connect with each other from around the globe. Because of social media we are able to communicate directly to our consumers with a push of a button.

7. Where would you like to see The Frosting Company in the next 5 or so years?
In 5 years we would like to see the Frosting Company as a household brand. We want to work to continue to educate people to know that what you put onto your skin is just as important as what you eat.

8. Who is a #BossLady that inspires you?
A #BossLady that inspires us the most is without a doubt our Mom. She is an entrepreneur herself and continues to give us guidance and inspiration. Our Mom is our biggest cheerleader and has always encouraged us to pursue our dreams.
