Prom Prep | Beauty Guide
TWO MONTHS OUT
Grab your phone and schedule your hair and makeup appointments NOW! Your favorite hairstylists and aestheticians will be booking up fast, so make sure to reserve your spot today by either calling in or SCHEDULING ONLINE!
HAIR CUT & COLOR | It’s time for a hair refresher! Get your hair color refreshed and ready for Prom. A hair cut two weeks before your event ensures that the ends of your tresses are clean and polished for your Prom-day style. You can talk through your ideas and make a plan for the vent, as well as being able to have your stylist review your home care regimen to ensure you have all the necessary ‘prep’ products so your hair will look and feel its best on the big day!
ONE WEEK BEFORE
EYELASHES | Show your lashes some love with either a Lash Lift and Tint, a low-maintenance lash curling service that both darkens and lifts your natural lashes for a beautiful appearance that lasts up to eight weeks. Add length, curl and volume to your lashes with an Eyelash Extension installation! A Lash Lift & tint can be done up to four (4) days before your event for maximum benefits!
FACE | Prep Your Face! Experience the ultimate cleansing, exfoliating and extracting treatment with INSTANT results by scheduling yourself a HydraFacial! Or try our no-frills, no-nonsense approach to cleaner, brighter and more beautiful skin with an Express Facial!
Keep your skin prepped and ready at home by exfoliating your face and lips with a gentle scrub every other day, starting one week before Prom. Our Aestheticians recommend using Rhonda Allison Brightening Scrub or Mandelic Perfecting Polish Scrub. The Mandelic Perfecting Polish is great for those with sensitive skin!
NOTE: Avoid using face scrubs that contain abrasive materials such as nutshells, sugar or salt. Opt instead for Jojoba beads or Diatomaceous Earth to avoid damaging your skin.
FOUR DAYS BEFORE
WAXING | Wax your worries away four (4) days before Prom ensures that any skin irritation or waxing residue has been diminished, but also limits your chance of any regrowth happening before your special event. Whether your eyebrows, upper lip, nose, legs or any other place – waxing four days before is the way to go!
EYEBROWS | Tinting your brows helps to reduce prep time, all while enhancing the natural shape of your brows. BONUS you’ll wake up with beautiful brows the next morning! You can combine a brow tint and eyebrow wax together too!
TAN | We all know the dangers of tanning beds, but what if you could add an INSTANT ‘fresh off the beach’ glow in 60-seconds? Roxanne Rizzo’s Bronze Glow Bronzing Mist mimics the ‘just got back from vacation’ look without turning you orange. It also helps camouflage veins, cellulite and any skin imperfections for a flawless bronze glow in 60-SECONDS! For an easy tan-on-the-go in 4-8 hours choose Vita Liberata’s ‘Try-Me’ 2-Pack Tanning Cloth for only $7!
THREE DAYS BEFORE
NAILS | Our Nail Technicians recommend getting a gel polish Manicure or Pedicure three days before. HOWEVER, if you are looking to get regular polish we recommend getting your Manicure done the day-of to avoid any chips. Pedicures in regular polish can usually be done three (3) days before as your toes see less wear than your hands.
FACE | As you get closer to your event, you want to maximize your skin’s hydration for a beautiful dewy complexion by utilizing a killer skincare regimen. Our Aestethician’s recommend adding Rhonda Allison Grape Seed Hydrating Serum to your regimen for intense antioxidant support and moisture. Antioxidants help to protect your skin from free radicals that can assault your skin, damaging healthy skin cells and help reduce pigmentation and fine lines.
Pair with a Maskeraide Mask for a fun, little treat for your face. Depending on your skin’s needs and the desired results, we recommend the Rosé All Day, for brighter and refined skin, Beauty Rest’ore, to nourish and relax, Bubble Bubble Pop, to purify and deep clean, or Detox Diva, to exfoliate and detoxify your face!
WASH YOUR HAIR | Our Stylists can not stress this enough – wash your hair the night before! Avoid using any ‘styling’ products, unless your stylist has given you specific instructions to do something different.
EYE MASKS | Keep your cool with a ToGoSpa Eye Mask the night before. Ice Water Eyes is great for depuffing the area under your eyes, while the Green Tea Eyes combats dark circles.
PRO TIP: Pop them in the fridge 15 minutes before you use them for an added refresher!
HOW TO DRESS FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT | Wear a button-up or zippered shirt to your hair and makeup appointment to avoid messing up your finished look.
BEFORE PHOTOS | Snag yourself a Kevin Murphy Shine Spray for either blonde or brunette hair and right before you take photos, mist your finished ‘do for a photo-ready finish and dazzling shine without weighing your hair down!
MUST-HAVES | Check out our Simonson’s boutique for last-minute jewelry or hair accessories to take your look to a whole new level! Also, don’t leave home without your favorite travel-size hairspray for last-minute fixes.
THE MORNING AFTER
DETOX | You had your fun, now treat your face to a healthy detox to rid your skin of impurities. Pop on a ToGoSpa Bamboo Charcoal Eye Mask to decrease puffiness and help detoxify and draw out the impurities from last night.
SECRET WEAPON | Keep your favorite Dry Shampoo on-hand to remove the dirt and refresh your tresses. Pair with Kevin Murphy’s Dry Conditioner to nourish, add manageability and to leave your locks smooth and silky for one more day!
