Jacksonville, Fl.  A local salon owner posted a video entitled “DON’T LAUGH …Eyebrow Shaping, Tinting and Fill-in Experience at GA LA CAR” has gone viral.  Viewed by more than 1.3 million and over 6,607 shares. Gail Carter-Cade of GA LA CAR Beauty Salon created a How to shape, tint and fill-in eyebrows video and uploaded it onto Facebook.  She used her daughter Gala Cade as her model.  The video was a demonstration of two popular professional products step by step how to tint application and fill-in.   The video went viral because of Gala’s lashes.  Gala had put on her own lashes but these lashes had a little more glue on them then usual.  She didn’t have on any makeup.   We love lashes because they enhance your beauty. In the video the main focus became her lashes.  I was thinking that people would look past the lashes and see the benefits and advantage of getting their eyebrows tinted and filled in.

People have been cruel and horrible saying all kinds of hurtful things about my daughter and I.  I would of never believed that people could be so hateful towards young people.  It would of been easy for her to consider disappearing.  Thankful that she is strong. We feel like celebrities because people care that much about our simple video.

People began questioning the professionalism of the salon owner and the salon.  Gail Carter-Cade received her cosmetology license in New York and she was the first African American to receive a scholarship to attend Christine Valmy School for Esthetics, Skin Care and Makeup.  She also taught at the school and was a freelance makeup artist for Ebony Man Magazine.  When Mrs. Carter-Cade came to Jacksonville, she became the First African American to have her picture featured in the Yellow Pages under beauty salons.

While Gala was in elementary school it was brought to Mrs. Carter-Cade’s attention that she was having difficulties in reading.  It was noted that she had Dyslexia or Learning Disabilities. Once Mrs. Carter Cade became aware of this she began to learn all she could about it and ways to help Gala.  She  has graduated from high school and has been promoted on her job of three years.  Mrs. Carter-Cade became and is known as a special needs advocate in the community.  Mrs. Carter-Cade created website and a soon to be released book to give parents more insight and understanding of special needs so that they can embrace and help their student.

One thing she instilled in Gala was confidence, leadership, pride and not to give up. These qualities has helped her stand strong against the negative posts made on facebook in regards to her lashes.  We now refer to her as Queen Lashes.  Soon we will be releasing more videos, raps and a possible eyelash line.

Who’s Dressing?


Who’s Dressing? Let’s compare preparing meat for a grocery store to a woman dressing for an occasion.  In a grocery store meat is carefully taken care of.  It is kept in the proper temperature, cut to specialty size, cleansed and packaged particularly in a way that will be appealing and not distracting.  If the meat package is open and some of the meat is exposed it is thrown in the garbage.

Since clothes are designed to fit a little tighter now.  Before we choose clothes try to look younger or in style we need to consider our shapes, size, colors and the occasion how much of our bodies do we want to reveal or expose to strangers.  Regardless of the occasion we want to dress our best to look our best whether if it’s for career, casual, business, evening or religious affair.   We should give the same care and considerations to our appearance that is given to meat before we step out and represent ourselves.  Ooh La La GA LA CAR. Beauty is a Necessity and Not a Luxury.
