In 2012, we learned Instagram filters can’t fix all. Specifically, when you look like a hot mess at a party or need to clean your mirror.
The easiest way to look spectacular IRL on NYE: Beauty Booked.
Co-founded by Hillary Hutcheson (a former L’Oréal marketing exec) and Ritika Gill (consultant for Mandarin Oriental spas), the NYC-based website lets you search and book beauty treatments for free.
Simply log in via Facebook and click your desired time and date. Search by service (bodywork, brows and lashes, facials, hair, makeup, massages, nail art, etc.), location, and price range, or — if you already have a favorite spot — by name. It populates a list, you browse and pick, then, boom, you’re hooked up.
All 200-plus current salons are vetted by Beauty Booked’s experts and fellow members, so only the city’s most reliable make the cut. Profiles includes ambiance, available tipping options, and even press mentions. So think quality service, not discounts.
For now, the site focuses on NYC, but other major cities are coming soon.
