GoPretty.com Launches, Bringing Celebrity Stylists to Manhattan's DoorExpert Stylists Give Style, Hair and Makeup Tips for the New Year (January 06, 2010)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/06/10 -- GoPretty.com announces the launch of their first-to-market business which gives discerning New Yorkers and visitors access to top-level hair, makeup and wardrobe stylists who come to clients' homes, offices, hotels or health clubs. Unlike a mobile spa, www.gopretty.com offers beauty and styling services for special events or any time that convenience and privacy are of importance. Stylists' portfolios are available for viewing and appointments can be booked via Go Pretty's seamless online booking system, which is also used by foremost hotels, such as W Hotels and St. Regis Resorts.
Tracy Saunders, who spent her career hiring top talent for Fortune 500 companies, designed Go Pretty to fill a gap in the market. "So often I wanted someone to come over and blowout my hair or help me put an outfit together. I knew amazing stylists were out there, but I wasn't sure how to access them," says Saunders, who used her recruiting skills to find New York's leading hair, makeup and fashion experts to bring the expert stylist to private clientele. GoPretty.com provides services to everyone from busy executives to harried new moms, to celebrities and those who are visiting New York and want private, convenient, high-quality styling services. "We expect our business to be the new luxury trend in beauty," says Saunders. "It's a time-saving, schlep-saving approach to looking and feeling gorgeous, effortlessly."
Following are get-gorgeous tips from GoPretty.com's celebrity stylists:
Celebrity stylist Erin Turon, who has dressed Hollywood celebrities like Jamie Lynn Sigler, Olivia Wilde, Sophia Bush, Justin Timberlake and other fashion icons, offers tips for what's always in and what's out for 2010.
-- What's in? "The black cocktail dress that's fitted and unadorned, a straight-leg basic black dress pant, blazer, and flattering denim are things that will always be in," says Turon. "They instantly provide a polished look and can be worn causally or quickly dressed up with accessories." -- What's out? Turin advises clients to get rid of items that don't fit, banish garments that you haven't worn in the past two years and dismiss the surplus of lounge-wear, keeping only two flattering lounge-wear outfits.
Marcos Diaz, who appeared on Season 3 of Bravo's "Blow Out," has styled hair for designers such as Max Azaria, Carlos Miele, Nicole Miller and others. Diaz' top tip that helps women save time and look beautiful -- making bed hair work for you. "Waking up with bed hair in the morning can be one of the sexiest looks women pull off," says Diaz. "To extend and enhance the look, flip your hair upside down, spray super fine hairspray on your hands and roughly work your hands all over your head, focusing on the roots. It is like a clean, seamless version of teasing the hair."
Makeup artist Margaret Avery, a mainstay on New York's elite beauty and fashion scene, has worked with many models and celebrities, like Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Barbra Streisand and Isabella Rossellini. Avery's breadth of skincare knowledge and artistry can be seen in Elle, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and other publications. She provides these look-great tips:
-- "Save time with MAC Paint Pots that come in several shades and work great as eye shadow base. -- To exfoliate lips, rub a little honey and sugar on them. -- Mix a little bit of Becca's Shimmering Pearl Primer with your moisturizer to give your skin extra glow when you need it."
