Name & Age:

Amanda Reed, 32


TenOverSix, Store Manager 

A little background: 

I've lived in Dallas since 2001 and have worked in fashion since graduating from UNT in 2007. I currently manage TenOverSix at the Joule hotel and we have been open for a year and a half. We carry a mix of organic beauty, arts, handmade gifts and independent designer goods from predominately LA and NYC. It's so fun seeing the changes that are happening with downtown Dallas and being a part of that has been such a great experience. 

Beauty regimens and tips? 

I'm crazy about washing my face every night and I use eSpa's Balancing Herbal Toner to get all of the makeup off - it helps that the smell is great too. My makeup trick is to use a cream blush like Ilia's All of Me and highlight cheeks with Mac's Soft and Gentle mineralizing powder. It gives that young, healthy luminous look everyone is after. I also use Tata Harper's Resurfacing Mask after a long weekend to get back to normal. 

What are your favorite local DFW beauty brands and/or beauty related services? 

My hair is a huge part of my overall look and Clive at Clive and Co. really took it to the next level for me this year after having a long bob forever. For minimal nail art I see my girl Patricia Valle at Beauty Bar - also one of my favorite dance spots in Dallas.

Aside from TenOverSix, what are some of your favorite Dallas/Ft.Worth boutiques?

I never get to V.O.D. as much as I'd like and Forty Five Ten of course. 




Holidays are here...any local must-have items on your shop list? 

The rest of Emily Weiss from Into the Gloss' new skincare line Glossier - I'm obsessed! This Suno mini dress at TenOverSix and the Acne Jensen boot. 

If you could have dinner with any local DFW woman, who would it be? 

I'd have to say Christen Wilson - her style takes the cake. 





Any last words?

My overall life advice for women trying to figure out what they are supposed to do in life is to try a million things rather than waiting for a huge epiphany. Then you just fall into it, and everything seems to work out with ease.
