Lakeview finishing salon Goldplaited—yep, the one that offers "party lashes"—has a pretty spectacular deal going on. As consolation for the brutal weather, sisters and co-owners Mal and Co Strong are offering weekday blowouts for just 25 smackaroos from now until March 20 (that'd be the first day of spring.)
They also have a new express makeup service called "Gold Rush." The 20-minute service is also just $25, and includes concealer, bb cream, powder, blush, brows, simple eye makeup, mascara, and gloss. Plus, you can always spritz yourself with perfume at the salon's genius finishing nook, and that part's gratis.
So, let's do the math: on a Thursday night, you could your hair and makeup done professionally for $50 (and, if you ask nicely, the sisters may toss in a glass of champagne.) It all adds up to something rather lovely, wouldn't you say?
