Let me start by saying I love getting my hair and makeup done. I get my hair done often because I find it difficult to do it on my own (I know, first world problems). But makeup? I will jump at the chance whenever an opportunity presents itself because I suck at doing it. Really, I do. It's just never the same as when a professional does it. But more than simply getting my hair and makeup done, I love when I don't have to leave the comfort of my own home (or hotel) to be pampered. Enter Glamsquad.
My friend, Sydnee, and I were staying at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC for a fun 'Galentine's Day' weekend. We scheduled appointments with Glamsquad through their app because we wanted to feel and look like our best selves for our girls' day. And boy did we ever! Our makeup artist, Esquire, and hairdresser, Ebony, brought alllll the fun, energy, and professionalism with them!
Honestly, I was a bit nervous at first. I already have people I work with for hair and makeup services, so to trust people yet to be vetted (by me!) was a bit unnerving. However, my fears were completely unfounded. Both Esquire and Ebony have YEARS of experience and told us that Glamsquad only hires the best of the best. Each artist is actually required to audition with several looks and hair types before they're hired with Glamsquad.
Esquire and Ebony were on time, professional and really cared about the looks we were going for. I love when my face is BEAT to the high heavens. Sydnee, however, prefers a more subtle, natural look. Esquire delivered on both. Unfortunately, my hair was already braided up so I didn't get a chance to try their hair services, but Sydnee loved her blowout.
What I also love about Glamsquad is not only will they come to wherever you are, but if you fall in love with your makeup artist or hairdresser, you can request them again and again. And Glamsquad's prices are super reasonable. A blowout for $50 and full face of makeup for $75?! You won't find lower prices for full glam services at your finger tips.
If you live in or are visiting New York, South Florida, D.C. or Southern California, this is the perfect service for a night out on the town, a scheduled photo shoot, or even if you're over going to the salon. I can't wait to use Glamsquad again, perhaps during my trip to L.A. this year or even when I'm home in D.C. They've definitely found a new fan in me.
