Stylish Sophisticates




Six on-the-go Miami Beach women shared an afternoon of primping and polishing as the guests of 1160 Hair in Bay Harbor Islands. The purpose of the indulgence was to show off holiday hair-do's and sparkly jewels provided by Jackie Abraham Jewelers. The six friends put aside their hectic schedules as business women, philanthropists, volunteers, mothers, and managers of their households to enjoy being pampered with the genial 1160 staff setting the mood for them to relax and unwind. Sporting long hair all, one by one the ladies opted for simple and sleek styling rather than elaborate up-do's for their holiday looks. It's au naturale for this group of sophisticates!
