On December 1st, I attended the grand opening of the Beauty Bar flagship store at Americana Manhasset, in Manhasset, New York. I rarely go to Long Island but I can see how Beauty Bar fits in perfectly at this upscale outdoor shopping center, alongside coveted brands such as Dior, Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragamo.
The luxury boutique carries many of my favorite beauty, skincare, fragrance and hair care brands, including Caudalie, Jurlique, Tocca, L'Occitane, By Terry, Sisley-Paris, Bond No. 9 New York, Butter London and Kevyn Aucoin. Many of the brands that are carried are unisex, but Beauty Bar also carries Art of Shaving and Jack Black and for men.
It's not easy to find my favorite brands all in one spot, and many of these brands aren't sold at your local Sephora either. Beauty Bar is a completely different beauty shopping experience.
Beauty Bar's bi-level boutique features two incredible perks - a Treatment Room and Blow Dry Bar. The Treatment Room includes facials, luxe peels and waxing services. For the Blow Dry Bar, Beauty Bar has partnered with nuBest Salon for styling sessions and chic blowouts.
If you can't make it to the Beauty Bar boutique, you can shop your favorite brands atbeautybar.com.
During the launch party guests enjoyed champagne, hors d'oeuvres and complimentary min-facials, makeovers and blowouts. Thanks to Eber for my Jurlique mini-facial and Stacey for my smoky eye Smashbox makeover.
