While my calendar is marked full with holiday parties, I often find myself stressed to look the part of the fun and festive party-goer. Who has the time or the money to get primped and polished before each event? That's why I love the idea of the new Beauty Bar at Spa Montage Beverly Hills. Launched just in time for the holiday season, the Beauty Bar features a menu showcasing targeted mini treatments, such as facial and brow waxing, manicures, pedicures, and makeup applications by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. For those who need a bit of rejuvenation, there are NuFACE Microcurrent lifts and alpha-hydroxy acid peels. And the new Braid Luxe by Kim Vo will offer a variety of four to six rotating styles of braids and the latest in hairstyling trends. Pricing begins at $20. For a limited time, spa-goers can opt for the Holiday Glow treatment ($180), which includes a Body Shimmer Scrub, a dusting of Naked Princess' 24-karat gold powder, a classic manicure, and complimentary valet service. It's the perfect way to prep for any party. Guests who book the package can also enjoy all of the spa's facilities, such as the herbal steam room, sauna, whirlpool, and more. Of course, I'd love the Beauty Bar even more if it was just a little (or a lot) closer to home.
