NEXT ARTISTS NEW YORK — Saturdays in September are not only lined up with runway shows and after parties, but are perfect days to hold exclusive events like our very own Next Artists Beauty Lounge. During the midst of the Spring / Summer 2016 Fashion Week, Next Artists celebrated their 3rd annual Beauty Lounge event at Dune Studios. The Beauty Lounge showcases their talented artists including; hair stylists, makeup artists, fashion stylists, brand ambassadors, manicurists, groomers. Guests were welcomed on this special day to complimentary services given by members of the Next Artists team. From hair styling, men’s haircuts, makeup, mani-pedis and eyebrow shaping, to facials by Heyday, massages by Soothe, and even the popular chemical foot peels by Dr. Hillary Brenner – the exclusive event had it all.

Next’s top Celebrity Hair Stylists created lustrous looks using the coveted Amika Tools and Oscar Blandi hair care – a trio that was sure to result in the perfect hair style. Cosmetic brand Cover FX was on-site with their mobile cart providing Custom Cover drop consultations – a cutting-edge foundation consisting of pure pigments which allows you to tailor any product in your beauty regimen. While blissful guests were busy getting pampered others enjoyed the Lounge’s specialty cocktail – Voga Italia Prosecco paired with Wild Hibiscus Flower in Syrup – The perfect combination for a luxurious cocktail. All white arrangements flourished throughout the lounge courtesy of Elan Flowers accompanied by Trapp Candles in White Lotus and Lychee. It was a setting of luxurious serenity – a true oasis within NYFW.
