Microblading is taking the nation - and Tri-State - by storm. Learn about the local expert providing services to Dayton and Cincinnati’s northern neighborhoods.

 

Erica Kidder at Dayton Microblading offers microblading services for your eyebrows.

Erica Kidder, who has worked in the beauty industry since 2008, has focused on hair, waxing, and event style hair do’s. But now, Kidder is shifting her focus, and is making women all over the Tri-State feel beautiful and empowered.

Kidder started in 2008 at Square One Salon and Spa, in Centerville, Ohio, and has since expanded her horizons. Keeping up with all the new beauty trends, Kidder has decided to open a salon of her own, that holds a focus on microblading as early as May 2. “After five years, I left to explore a career as a small business owner- the past three years I’ve worked within Salon Lofts. Last year, my passion for the industry expanded into permanent makeup, and with the addition of microblading, I quickly outgrew my loft. I made the decision to focus almost exclusively on microblading and I am now leaving Salon Lofts and opening my first salon.”

Microblading is a newer concept, which is rapidly making its debut to the greater Cincinnati area. “When I discovered microblading, it was only popular in bigger cities,” explains Kidder. “I knew it was only a matter of time before it reached the Midwest. The service fascinated me. I love that there is an alternative to traditional permanent makeup, that typically leaves clients with a solid filled in eyebrow. Microblading offers the most natural result.”

Erica Kidder of Dayton Microblading

When someone talks about microblading, it can come off as a foreign concept. Microblading in short, is a non-permanent tattoo that fills and adds shape to one’s eyebrow, and Kidder understands just how important eyebrows are to women. “This luxury of a permanent makeup service replicates hair strokes in the eyebrow, creating fullness, definition and balance,” explains Kidder. “While microblading is deemed ‘semi-permanent,’ it is still in the ‘tattoo’ family. Due to the pigment being placed under the skin more superficially than a traditional tattoo, naturally it fades faster. Fading is considered a positive characteristic in microblading, as it allows for updates in shape, color and provides the ability to work with changes in aging skin.”

During a microblading appointment, Kidder says, you can expect to spend up to three hours at your initial appointment. During the first part of this session, she collaborates on a shape that is perfect for you. “We will take time to choose the appropriate pigment color based on your skin tone, and existing brow hair,” she says. “Once you approve your template, we will outline the brow and then provide anesthetics for comfort.”

The microblading is done with a small hand tool with sterile, disposable needles to implant pigment into the skin. The second appointment, which is included in the package price, will take place no sooner than four weeks of your initial appointment, and no later than 12 weeks after. “This is a touch up appointment and is absolutely imperative to your results,” Kidder says. “Without it, your results will not be optimal, as the service is only half done. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes and it finishes the process.”

Since this new concept can generate many questions for the client, Kidder offers one-on-one consultations for $25. “During a consultation, I will cover every question a guest has, but most importantly I address expectations,” says Kidder. “We will talk shape, color, healing, pre-and post care, etc.”

Since microblading isn’t a permanent tattoo, it does require regular touch ups, fill ins, and a bit of TLC from the client after the session is finished. “For a tattoo,” says Kidder. “A machine is used to implant the pigment deep into the skin, versus microblading, a disposable manual hand tool with sterile one-time use needles is used to deposit pigment into the upper dermal layer of the skin. This superficial placement allows for natural fading with the exfoliation of skin.”

Depending on skin type, lifestyle, aftercare, and environmental factors, every guest will retain pigment differently, according to Kidder. For example, she says, if you have oily skin, you are a smoker, or you swim, or tan regularly, you will require more touch ups. “Some guests however will require more sessions without any of these factors applying to them,” she adds. “If you want to maintain your brow, you must touch them up. They are designed to fade. Yearly touch ups are typical, and are $250. I offer a ‘perfecting session’ for guests who want to supplement their initial two appointments for $150. If you don’t need a third visit, a yearly touch up is sufficient.”

Kidder has an appreciation for microblading for many reasons, but her favorite is the empowerment the women have when they leave her salon. “Having the power to improve someone’s self-confidence is by far the most rewarding part of microblading,” says Kidder. “At the end of every service when I show my guest their new brows, I feel overwhelmed with the same amount of joy that they do. It’s truly incredible to see someone smile ear to ear because of something you did. Last October, breast cancer awareness month, I had a very eye opening experience. I chose to do a giveaway on social media for breast cancer survivors who lost their brow hair due to treatment. I chose four winners during the month. The time I was able to spend with each survivor was incredible, and it proved to me that microblading is so much more than aesthetic. It’s life changing. To give back a part of someone’s womanhood is truly a humbling experience. To this day, I still think about how thankful I am to be able to add to their stories.”

Kidder says she is thankful for her business growing quicker than she can keep up with, as she is booking clients into August. “I’m happy to see this service is gaining exposure.” says Kidder. Currently, Kidder is with Salon Lofts in Washington Park Plaza, and her microblading sessions are $500. Her first available opening is at the end of July.

While some might think Dayton is the sleepy little town between here and Columbus, others would beg to differ. In fact, organizers of the first Dayton Fashion Week say it’s about to be the Midwest’s fashion hub.

 

Dayton Fashion Week was inspired and created by Junda Morris-Kennedy who says she’s always had a passion for fashion. Growing up with a mother, who taught her to sew at the young age of three, Morris-Kennedy became a fashion and pageantry enthusiast.

 

“I worked in the fashion industry for a while now. I just moved here to the Dayton area,” says Morris-Kennedy. “I did my market research for different events that happen in Dayton and with my background in the industry I decided to come up and put together Dayton’s first annual fashion week.”

 

Morris-Kennedy previously owned a Maryland-based modeling agency, while also producing pageants. She owns the National Miss Ebony U.S. pageant and even owns her own nail polish line. In regards to Dayton Fashion Week, Morris-Kennedy is most excited about the showcasing Dayton’s talent.

 

“I’m most excited about the momentum it has it brought to the city and all the artistic people it has given hope to within the city. This is an event that showcases talent and they [designers] don’t have to leave the city to show their talent,” she says.

We’re taking you outside city limits for a bite to eat in a small town restaurant that’s all about local food and features handcrafted cocktails and 48 taps of craft beer.

Murphy’s Craftbar + Kitchen is located in Sidney, Ohio, just north of Dayton.

Nestled just off Interstate 75 is the small town of Sidney, Ohio. In this emerging community embracing the #eatlocal trend is the newly opened restaurant Murphy’s Craftbar + Kitchen.

Murphy’s is owned by 22-year-old restauranteur Rocco Catanzarite. Although young, he’s motivated to create something great in his hometown.

“Being born and raised in Sidney I know there isn’t really much to do here,” he says. “I found that all age groups kind of twiddle their thumbs on Friday and Saturday nights.”

He wanted to change that with the opening of Murphy’s. Thanks to his start at the family business called Karoc Marathon, a convenience store and gas station that has become known as one of the largest beer and wine boutiques in the state of Ohio, Catanzarite was able to spread his wings and his network.

He worked off the theory of “it’s all about who you know” and began reaching out to as many people as he could. Over time he was able to establish relationships to breweries and get his hands on hot new releases coming to the state and limited release beers.

After months of preparation, planning, and continuing to reach out to contacts, Catanzarite opened Murphy’s Craftbar + Kitchen in downtown Sidney, offering big city vibes to a town of 20,000 people.

“We pride ourselves on being the first to the party and doing fun things like putting popsicles in our cocktails and infusing bacon into vodka,” he says. 

The menu at Murphy’s features popular items like the Nashville Hot Chicken, Braised Short Rib Poutine, Murphy’s Wings, and the Hangover Burger, which use local ingredients in their recipes. The restaurant also features weekly appetizer and burger specials so that there’s always something new to taste.

There are 48 taps at Murphy’s as well, featuring Cincinnati beers like Rhinegeist and MadTree. But what makes the taps at Murphy’s unique is that they rotate out the beers, so the beer menu is constantly changing and new options are always available for craft beer lovers to try out. The cocktails at the restaurant are handcrafted and include favorites like the Pineapple Habanero Margarita, the Brown Derby, a French 75, and more like the draft cocktail and crowd favorite the Dreamsicle.

“My goal at Murphy’s is to create an experience, from the moment that customer pulls the handle on the front door I want them to feel as if they are a part of something, something that when they leave they can’t wait to go back,” he says. 

The experience he and his team of millennials offer at Murphy’s is something he hopes to continue to expand upon with future endeavors.

“For the future there are many plans, a couple we are actually working on currently and plan to open within the next year and a half,” he says. “The goal is to really round out all our brands into one hospitality brand; customers will eat at our restaurants, grab a bottle of wine and some gas at Karoc, shop in our retail store, and stay in our hotel.”

You can learn more about Murphy’s on Facebook and Instagram.

A new Dayton-based company makes hand-made, organic body care products that are not only good for you, but also good for the environment.

Baba Love Organics offers skin care products that are good for you and the environment.

If you’ve ever looked at the back of the bottle of one of your favorite lotions or skincare products, you’ll probably find several unfamiliar, and difficult to pronounce chemical names. While those chemicals might perform a job well, they might be good for you or too harsh for sensitive skin.

In February of 2018, Dayton native Vaniti Byrd launched her very own skin and body care line, Baba Love Organics, so that consumers could find natural products that perform well, but are free from any harsh unfamiliar chemicals. 

The company’s official launch included only four products but now has a range of 27 different face and body care items.

The mission of Baba Love Organics is to support total well-being, inside and out. “What we use on the largest organ of our body is ultimately going into our body,” Byrd says. “If we are placing toxins on our skin, we are placing toxins in our body.” 

The entire idea behind the brand was to create skincare formulas that are free from toxins, made with organic and raw ingredients, cruelty-free, and ethically packaged. 

One of the ways Baba Love Organics has made an effort to stay true to their vision of sustainability is by hosting “Bring Your Old Bottle” events where fans and customers can come by to give old packaging a new life by refilling them with organic body butters and oils. These events also bring the community together and provide a way for Byrd and her team to get feedback from the customers in real life. 

Another popular event the company holds is their “Masks and MUMosas” beauty brunch. They feature a DIY mask bar, bottomless mimosas, vegan brunch foods, and one-on-one facial consultations with Byrd herself. 

As an Etsy-based shop with no brick-and-mortar location, it’s extraordinary that loyal customers get to have experiences like this. “The experience keeps customers excited about using plant-based beauty care products,” says Byrd. 

With products ranging from tooth polish to “bath tea”, Baba Love Organics offers a variety of products for those looking for a natural approach to self-care.

    The arrival of Memorial Day means that summer is almost here! We chat with the local woman who launched a luxury consignment resource about the latest trends heating up the new season ahead.

    The RealReal Cincinnati is a luxury consignment shop that handles shipping and selling your high-end clothes, shoes, and accessories.

     

    Consignment shopping is just one of the latest trends to hit the retail world and there’s one luxury consignment resource — the RealReal — that helps you sell women’s, men’s, kids, fine jewelry, watches, art, and more from the comfort of your own home. 

    “We ensure that every item on The RealReal is 100 percent the real thing, thanks to our dedicated team of authentication experts, horologists, and gemologists,” says Marisa Gouda, Luxury Manager of The RealReal Cincinnati.

    Thus far, The RealReal has sold more than 60 million items and more than 11 million customers across the globe.

    Recently, the Cincinnati market opened for complimentary white glove consignment pickups. “This means my Cincinnati clients no longer have to inventory or schlep items to UPS themselves,” says Gouda. “As Cincinnati’s Luxury Manager, I visit with my clients at their home, where I gather, inventory, and ship all items to our e-commerce for processing.”

    In addition to Cincinnati, Gouda also covers the Louisville and Dayton markets, which helps to make the consignment process more simple, convenient, and free.

    Marisa Gouda is the Luxury Manager for The RealReal Cincinnati.

    The inspiration behind The RealReal comes from sustainability. The luxury retail business is a $1.5 trillion industry and consignment allows items to follow the lifecycle of luxury.

    “We have a heavy focus on sustainability, even a partnership with Stella McCartney,” says Gouda. “And we know exactly how to tell real from counterfeit, from the quality of the leather to the zipper manufacturer.

    When you shop The RealReal you’ll find everything luxury. This includes handbags, clothing, shoes, and accessories for women, men, and kids, as well as fine jewelry, watches, and high-end home and art items.

    Prices from The RealReal are data-driven, based on the 60 million items that have been sold to date. “Pricing is never subjective,” says Gouda. “We price based on what we know the market can bear, and what we’ve sold in the past. I’ve seen prices as low at $13 and as high as $350,000.”

    While consignment is common, Gouda says there isn’t another online luxury platform that can match The RealReal’s authentication practices, pricing, and storage management.

    “We take care of everything – from shipping, photography, pricing, and copywriting – and we guarantee all items are 100 percent authentic,” she says.

    You can book an appointment with Gouda via email at marisa.gouda@therealreal.com or through her direct booking link. You can also follow her on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn or shop the site at www.therealreal.com.

    BONUS: Anyone that books a 10+ item consignment pickup with Marisa via this article will receive a $100 coupon to shop the site – mention this article when you reach out to Marisa!

    The Cincinnati-based franchisee behind the local Clothes Mentor stores opens a new Beavercreek location. Read on for a peek inside!

    Clothes Mentor will soon open a new location in Beavercreek, Ohio.

    Hyde Park, West Chester, Fields Ertel, Anderson … and now, Beavercreek.

    These are the area Clothes Mentor franchise locations owned by a locally-based family business, according to its Chief Operating Officer Kate (Finger) Paynter.

    Paynter says Clothes Mentor takes pride in distinguishing themselves in the category of consignment. There, you can find name brand and designer clothes, shoes, and accessories up to 70% off of retail prices.

    “We are a women’s resale store for all women, carrying sizes 0-26, petite, plus, and maternity,” says Paynter. “We buy and sell gently used, brand name and designer clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories in current style and great condition. We make selling what you are no longer wearing easy – we pay cash on-the-spot, 7 days a week, no appointment needed!”

    What makes Clothes Mentor so unique is their evolving inventory and customer oriented decisions, Paynter says. “We get new inventory every day, so we are never the same store twice. You never know what you might find,” Paynter adds. “And unlike consignment stores, where you may wait weeks to receive payment, we pay you immediately for items that we would like to purchase.”

    Their new Beavercreek location will help to expand the success they’ve seen in Cincinnati, Paynter says. “We have been hoping to expand to Dayton for about a year now, and we finally found the perfect location in Beavercreek next to our children’s and teen resale stores,” Paynter adds. “It’s a great location with the mall across the street and other new businesses in the area.”

    According to Paynter, the new location also extends their company’s mission to make life easier and more convenient for women. “We want to give customers a convenient and easy way to sell what they are no longer wearing. We know women are busy! We can usually give you a quote in about 20 minutes while you shop around the store,” Paynter says. “And if you are planning on donating any items we can’t purchase, we will save you the extra trip and donate them for you. All donated items go to Matthews 25 Ministries.”

    Paynter says this new store may be one of many more new locations to come in the future. “We would love to open one to two more locations, but we won’t think about until we have our new store up and running for at least a year.”

    To follow along, stay updated, and learn about new arrivals and upcoming events, Paynter says the best way is to find them on Instagram. “We love Instagram! Once we open, Instagram followers can ‘comment to hold’ items we post on Instagram, it’s our version of online shopping,” Paynter explains. “We also post all upcoming events and sales on our Facebook and website.”

    Get in touch via Instagram, Facebook, and their website!

      The springtime Vintage Market Days of Dayton-Cincinnati is coming soon!  Read on as we get behind the scenes of all the fun new things you can see and do at this year's event!

      Since its first local shopping event last year, Vintage Market Days brings thousands to enjoy a weekend full of shopping, music, food and family fun — and continues to grow with each event. The next one is coming up April 26-28 at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.

      “Vintage Market Days is an upscale vintage and vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home decor, outdoor furnishings, furniture, seasonal plantings, live music, and food trucks,” explains Vintage Market Days of Dayton and Cincinnati Promoter Tonya Ross.

      The history behind Vintage Market Days goes back to 2012 when it started as an indoor/outdoor Paris flea market-style event in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since then, the events have spread across the country and offer attendees more than a sale.

      Each Vintage Market Days event has its own theme – with the April event’s theme being “Memories.”

      Vintage Market Days is introducing several new vendors alongside past favorites at its upcoming event.

      “We will have an Airstream trailer for photo ops at our entrance, a 40-foot mobile clothing boutique, a vintage camper with vintage goods, and a cattle trailer transformed into a storefront,” says Ross.

      More than 100 small businesses come together for the event that attracts people from throughout the Tri-State and the Dayton Metro area. Due to the success the event has seen in the last year, Ross goes the extra length to ensure that Vintage Market Days is an experience rather than just an event, something that gives those who attend the chance to escape their daily hustle and bustle and enjoy time listening to music, shopping with friends, and meeting the vendors.

      “I love to see the vendor interaction and the shoppers faces when they discover the one piece they have been searching for,” she says. “I love to see couples attend our event and shop for their homes.”

      And it’s more than just couples and friends who shop at Vintage Market Days. The family-friendly event means that the little ones are welcome to join in on the shopping fun as well.

      To learn more about the event or to purchase your tickets, click here. Early Buying tickets, which begin on Friday, are $10, while General Admission tickets for Saturday and Sunday are $5. Once you purchase a ticket you can go in and out of the event as needed. Group discounts are also available by emailing for groups of 10 or more.
