Women on the go struggle to keep their look fresh and fashionable while they about their day from home, to the office, to a lunch meeting and then either back home or out for drinks. When I am out and about for day and needed to change my look from business to date night, the make-up bag and hair tools I pack along are embarrassing.
Forget my nails if those need a touch up or new polish. My secret to keeping nails looking good is to use a nail buffer so they have a glossy shine. It looks like a French manicure as long as I trim the nails to be even. Painting my own nails a great color leaves a lot of clean up. I do use a bit of cotton on an orange stick dipped in remover to clean up mistakes yet it never quite looks as fresh as a professional manicure.
Hair is another beauty routine that baffles me. I am jealous of those women who can French braid their own hair on the tube in what seems like seconds. Hair clips and lovely beaded hair bands are my go to accessory for a more stylish looking hair do.
These simple, on the go nail and hair cheats are sometimes not enough for when I need to feel on trend. Or to have the confidence that my look will last for a hectic series of business meetings. Then there are special events and date nights to consider.
For days when I don’t have the time or I really need my style to pop, I rely on mobile nail technicians and hair dressers. I found a great service, Instabeauty, which sends the beauty technicians to you. It saves me the hassle of finding time to make it to another location for an appointment. To spruce up my nails and hair, that means I need to go to two different salons.
With Instabeauty, I can schedule both services to come to my house, office, hotel or other location. When my best friend from London visited Cambridge for my 30thy birthday bash, I surprised her with some beauty pampering in her hotel room. Us girls needed to look our best for my big night. She loved it. Finding such great stylists in Cambridge shocked her London attitude.
When I want a professional look without the transportation hassle, I call Instabeauty.
