Where To Get Dolled Up In Your City

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, chances are you love hair, makeup and beauty just as much as we do. It’s probably safe to say that you know the difference between a wand and an iron, you have a beauty routine for regular days versus special occasions, and you certainly know your way around a Naked palette. That being said, there are times when big events like weddings, anniversaries or even just a major date, where only a professional touch will do! Whether you want to splurge on one specific element or you’re looking to be overall beautified for a big day, there’s a salon in your city with an empty chair waiting.

If you’re in a situation where you need your glam look to last all day (or night) or you’re going to be in a quite a few photos, you might want to consider getting your makeup professionally applied. Aside from the luxury of having a pro apply your makeup while you sit back and relax, you also get to try some new, fun products – and possibly take them home with you. Loving the techniques being used? Ask your artist to explain what they’re doing and why as they apply your look – you get application and a lesson in one!
