Time is money. As a stay-at-home mom, splurging to get a pedicure means having to pay a babysitter. Same goes for getting my hair cut or colored. It’s frustrating to have to double-pay — and the price tag can make it hard to justify such outings. Thanks to a friend who recommended I check out a local company for Beltway Bambinos readers, I found a solution! StyleMeBar provides on-demand and at-your-leisure professional hair and make-up services in the DC Metropolitan Area. And yes…right at your house. Services include: blowout, make-up, haircuts for children and adults, hair coloring and more. You conveniently make an appointment using their app and a stylist will come to your home or business and make you look amazing.
I had the pleasure of working with Shari. I was originally scheduled to get a blowout and my son was going to get a haircut. Well, my son had other plans, he got the stomach flu and we were forced to cancel date night and put off an extremely overdue haircut. Shari was understanding and flexible and we quickly rescheduled for an evening I had plans to celebrate my husbands birthday.
Shari communicated with me a few days before my appointment to verify we were still on and see if I had any questions as well as the day of. She arrived a few minutes early in a StyleMeBar shirt and badge with all of her gear in tow. She quickly setup on my dining room table and didn’t even blink an eye as she pushed Legos aside and stepped over baby dolls. We talked about what I’d like her to do and she got right to work.
I’m used to my hair drying naturally after taking 15 minutes to shower and look somewhat presentable for the day before rushing to pack lunchboxes, get breakfast ready and out the door on time. I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t look like I stepped out of a Glamour Shots shoot when Shari was finished. She suggested soft curls and a natural makeup look. Perfect!
An hour later I looked like I had just walked out of my hair salon but didn’t feel rushed to get home to relieve a babysitter. I loved the way Shari did my hair and make-up and also loved that I could sit in the comfort of my home while one child napped and the other watched a movie.
This is the perfect service for new parents who can’t leave the house, stay-at-home parents and even giving a gift certificate for a new parents to pamper themselves. Because who doesn’t love a good blow dry or getting their makeup done to go out to dinner?!
