It’s written. Glam is ON!


Reading Time: 3 minutes

There once was a girl with lots of big curls… and when she did party-season she R O C K E D the house. Not quite the rhyme, but you get our point. From the bewitching hour at Halloween through to the early hours of 2020 our stylists and therapists get you set for for your glitzy occasions. That’s the case 24-7-365 obvs, but we particularly love party-season prep.

IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

One woman’s glam is another’s staple. And a salon visit can be a powerful thing – especially after a hectic day with No Time For Self. Maybe you fancy a blowdry to see you through a big weekend. Or to pop in for fulsome party lashes just before you head out. Opting for a vibrant hair colour for the winter months, or sitting back while we put your best face on. Perhaps your go-to is a  rejuvenating facial or peel and you’ll take care of the rest. However you define your own brand of glam, you know where we are.

CLARE RE CURLY HAIR

Clare Murphy of Saks Art Team, and resident curl specialist *for obvious reasons* says: “Party-season to me means accentuating your hair-look. When waves and curls go bigger condition is important so keep up with colours and treatment to create rich and opulent shine. Ask your Saks stylist about Kerastase’s newly launched K Water for intensely shiny, lightweight and fluid hair.”

Our Clare

“For naturally curly hair use a tong to tame unruly ends and your overall look becomes more polished. For fine or flat hair, waves can add heaps of volume. Blowdry with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Spiral Queen – a nourishing mousse for contoured curls. Then with a tong or wand, wrap the hair around the barrel, away from the face as it’s more flattering.  Break the curls up with your fingers once the hair is cooled. Glamour, volume, shine – tick.  Party-READY!”

BEAUTY GO-TOS

BROWS

Channel your inner Cara by going bigger with your brows – this season the keyword being FLUFFY. Don’t have time to pop in for us to define your look? Here are Katie’s tips for at home.

Brush brows into shape and for a fluffy look use a brow gel to brush brows up and set them in place.
Create hair strokes with a brow pencil to add definition and shape to thinner, finer brows.
Use a brow mascara to coat the brow hairs to make them look longer and thicker.
Underline brows with a highlighter pencil to lift and open the eyes.

LASHES

Lashes for all on our menu. Our customers love LVL Lashes all-year round and we also see a big love for our Individual and Clusters options too – a full set of Nouveau Express lashes can last up to two weeks – that’s Christmas and New Year sorted! Vegan and cruelty free too.

Colours at home? Choose 5th Ave, Empire State and Wall Street must-haves from the Uptown Style collection. From Jessica’s Phenom range there’s no base coat required and Phenom gives longer wear than normal polish. Pop in to buy at any Saks Beauty salon.
