MA Beauty Expert:  Five Fall Beauty Appointments You Need

Saturday, September 05, 2015

 

I'm all for at-home beauty regimes - the self-care you do right in the privacy of your own home is relaxing, soothing - and well, private. You get the stuff. You do the work. But sometimes, like the beginning of fall, it's good to get a few pro appointments on the calendar. Think of it as jump starting your season. If you can swing it, here's our top five appointments for right now:

Hair

Get a professional color to get rid of the summer "greens" and dryness caused by too much sun, surf, and chlorine. Ask for the top colorist and determine which formulation and hue is best suited for you. Finish off with a precision cut for super-shiny and chic hair. Salon Mosaic is staffed with expert colorists and stylists waiting to book your appointment. South County Commons, South Kingstown

Nails

Autumn shows up first at the nail salons. And stand-alone nail emporiums are on the firing line of the latest techniques. They've had all the hot colors for weeks now and will direct you to fall's spot-on trends. You'll also hear about the newest long-lasting gel manicures that are now speedy to apply and no sweat taking off, which means you don't need another appointment just for removal. Check out NK Nails in North Kingstown for hip, fast, clean nail care.

Skin Care

Nothing feels better than a massaging facial and after summer our skin is crying out for TLC. Sloughing, steaming, and moisturizing will do your sun-weary skin wonders. Jahmeir Skincare Studio treats your skin the way it presents itself on the day of the appointment. In other words, your care will be personalized and geared toward your concerns and you will be handled discreetly and professionally. Skin will come alive just in time for fall's sweater days.

Make-up

Confused about all the new colors? I know. Me too. There are so many releases each season, it's hard to keep up (are smokey eyes still in?). That's why you should cut through the chase (and hype) with a real makeup artist. Book an appointment for a new face and tutorial with the latest in eye shadows, lipsticks, and blushers. Check out emerging foundation formulations and get honest advice from the source. Department stores are booking their crackerjack New York artists now for special boutique days. Or duck into Sephora at Garden City and ask for the in-house makeup artist. You gotta start somewhere.

Brows

This is where you'll get the most bang for your buck and a fall-ready brow line too. Threaders and waxers have trained eyes and in just minutes, you'll be set up with the precise shape that looks best on you. Most salons offer waxing but for perfect threading cheap and fast, check out Sukhy's in Warwick. No appointment necessary. In and out. Pawtucket and Johnston
