Try the Bella Conditioner, which contains collagen and moisturizes damaged hair with jojoba oil and keratin protein.

My Object of Affection

Michelle DiMauro and Heather Soto

Our most prized possession is this bar we bought from Retro Vegas. It’s the first piece we purchased for our new downtown studio when we moved in last year. It’s where we brainstorm design concepts, celebrate when we get a fantastic new project and have drinks with clients, friends and neighbors. We love the mix of gold vinyl, rhinestone tufting and the antique mirror on top. Plus, owning a small business can be stressful and challenging. Having a cocktail helps to alleviate some of that pain.
