This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of experiencing a new beauty service here in Chicago, The Stylisted. I was lucky enough to be included in a Chicago style feature for People Magazine that will be on stands in two weeks, but had a busy day. I had no time to go downtown to have my hair and make-up done.
TheStylisted is an online platform that allows women to book in-home hair styling and makeup appointments from a network of vetted beauty professionals. Gone are the days of rushing to-and-from the salon in rain and high humidity before a big event. Skip the salon, select the best professional for your needs, and wait for beauty to knock at your door.
Bev, my stylist, came to my apartment at 12:30p.m. where she set up shop in my kitchen. All I had to do was have wet hair. I requested a simple but bouncy blowout, and that was exactly what I got. She then went on to do my make-up, and I told her that I do not wear make-up…really, ever. She simply evened out my skin tone and contoured my face, and gave me a soft smokey eye. Bev is the first person I have let touch my face in years, and I loved the result.
I could not have had a better experience. I would highly recommend this to all of my fellow busy women. There is no place like home, after all.
