So you scored your red carpet event tickets... what's next? Here are some hints for the Average Socialite:

Red Carpet Hair


With blowout bars opening up everywhere it's easy to have red carpet hair in just 45 minutes or less. Check out Drybar for their signature blowouts and updos. Or stop by DreamDry for a blowout or an edgy braid! Both welcome online booking/appointments as well as walk-ins.


Milk + Sass' Macaron for Hair

We are obsessed with the new Parisian-inspired Macaron hairbrush by Milk + Sass that will go perfectly with your red carpet outfit. Even better: it will fit perfectly in your Birkin basket.

Milk & Sass’ Macaron for Hair is a bite-sized detangling hairbrush that doubles as a mirror compact. Not only is it tres chic (it looks just like a Macaron), but its high-tech design means you can tame tangles and smooth hair in half the time (and with a fraction of the damage) of a traditional hairbrush.
