Remember the fantastic garden pamper parties we told you about earlier this year? Well, if you couldn’t wait to gather up your best girls for one of those fun little get togethers, you’ll most definitely want to mark your calendar for Just B Beautiful‘s next exciting venture: The first ever Bridal Beauty Bootcamp, which will take place on Sunday, October 19th at Dollface Studios in Philly.
Back in the spring, we let you know that the Rittenhouse Hotel would be opening a brand new (and rather giant) spa, salon and health club right there in the hotel—and we are excited to announce that it’s up and running!
The Rittenhouse Spa & Club – Hair by Paul Labrecque has opened its doors, which now means for all you brides and grooms who are either getting married at the hotel or simply getting ready in one of the lovely suites before heading out to your celebration, your morning-of beautifying just got very convenient.
When we read Shoppist editor Emily Goulet’s detailed narrative of her recent trip to the new Le Rêve Rittenhouse Spa, our interests were piqued by the vision of fancy exfoliants, massages, and an “aromatherapy steam shower”—so when we heard that the new spot was especially suited to cater to couples, we were eager to learn more about the latest addition to Philly’s spa scene.
Rizzieri Salon & Spa Will Be Opening A 14,000-Square-Foot Location At The Moorestown Mall In September
A new salon is coming to town and it’s going to be massive. Come September, Frank and Sal Rizzieri—whose cosmetology empire includes multiple salons, a beauty school, and a school for the healing arts—will be relocating the Marlton outpost of Rizzieri Salon & Spa to a 14,000-square-foot space at the Moorestown Mall.
Q: I’m going to pay for my bridesmaids to have their hair and makeup done the morning of the wedding. Is it okay to make that their gift, or should I also be getting them jewelry or something else?
Our friends at Be Well Philly have a point when they talk about out how many potentially gross and harmful chemicals there are in the things we slather all over our bodies on a daily basis (lotions, nail polishes, shampoos, soaps, oils—you name it), and boy are we glad being recently grossed out led them to seek out alternatives in Philly, because we ended up with a really awesome roundup to share with you today!
Philly makeup artist Béke Beau (say it just like ‘Becky’) has been beautifying her clients for over 20 years—the last eight of them, happily, right here in our area.
She’s got a lovely by-appointment studio in Bryn Mawr where she offers makeup lessons (which include telling you which products and trends just aren’t worth your time) and where brides can go for makeup trials—though of course, she also spends many a weekend morning in the hotel suites, parents’ houses and venues of her brides as they primp and pamper for their weddings.
We checked in with Béke and her fab new platinum ‘do to see what she’s into right now—and to steal a few of her insider faves.
Braids, at their core, are bohemian, for sure—but as they’ve grown in popularity, brides and their hairstylists have evolved the look into more formal options perfectly fit for a dressed-up occasion like a wedding.
Well now, you shall have even more reason to love them, too, because they have just unveiled a deal that is exclusively for brides and bridesmaids. (Well, we should probably say another deal, because they already offer a discount if five or more bridesmaids get tanned the week of the wedding.)
Here at PW, we consider ourselves to be pretty in-the-know when it comes to the spray tanning scene here in Philly. And not just because of the time we’ve spent researching the topic (see our efforts below), but even more so because our combined paleness has made us the ideal candidates for testing every faux glow the city has to offer. And take it from us, the city has plenty of fantastic options.
