You just never know where you’ll end up when you go for a run in New York City, and today was no exception. Let me preface by saying that it is Fashion Week, and there are often many fun events during Fashion Week.
|The Beauty Bus NYC|
So, this morning as I was getting ready to go for a run, I read that there was something called the Hair Room Service Beauty Bus. I read further. The “Beauty Bus” is a glass truck outfitted with styling chairs, mirrors, and beauty product must-haves, and that it would be parked on the Upper West Side of Manhattan offering free professional makeup applications, hairstyling, and manicures!
The bus was “powered” by a company called Hair Room Service. Hair Room Service is a celebrity stylist service, founded by Michael Duenas, that offers in-room styling services at their clients’ homes, hotels, offices, etc. Their roster contains a long list of celebrity clients. And they were offering free mobile makeover experiences right on Broadway in a bus!! what could be cooler?
So… I only ran a few miles today. I exited Central Park near Lincoln Center and found the Beauty Bus. The employees couldn’t be nicer. I was 14 on the line, and had to wait about an hour, but it was worth every moment!
In the end, I had my nails done, my hair styled in some sort of lovely “up-do” by Matthew, and makeup applied by a makeup artist.

What a fun day, and what a dynamite group of people.
And there were
freebies gifts – some makeup products by NYX Cosmetics (“to bring the trends from the runways to the streets”), a hair product by Schwarzkopf, and some self-tanning lotions by Fake Bake.
So, I might not have run too much today, but I had a blast. What will tomorrow bring?
