Whether it's prom, your wedding day or a class reunion, you want to look your best. This day has been marked on your calendar. You've lost sleep creating a Pinterest board. Your GlowPro is scheduled, and it's a week till go-time. Now what? GlowPros agree that this is the five step beauty prep guide for your next big event. Follow these steps to enhance your natural beauty and get the most out of your GLOW appointment.



How to prep: Lightly exfoliate and stay moisturized. 2 weeks growth is standard, and always be sure to tell if you're taking any medications. Book for your brows, upper lip, and underarm if that applies. European Wax Center makes their own wax and offers all types of body and facial waxing. Try any of their Strut Smoothly products to maintain your post wax skin with Roman Chamomile, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, English Cucumber, and Mediterranean Sea Kelp, price ranges $19.50 - $39.50. Want to try sugaring? LA Bikini is a great alternative for sensitive skin. While you're there, pick up Phenomen-all. A softening and repairing cream that hydrates skin and soothes inflammation. Also removes dead skin cells, diminishes stretch marks and scars, softens skin cuticles, rough elbows/knees, ingrown hair and calluses.


Exfoliate with an Aroma Body Scrub and double exfoliation facials and botanical resurfacing at Aveda Institute. For home care get Aveda Beautifying Radiance Polish, $50, and the Tourmaline face products, $35-$44. Poseidon at Grand Bohemian also offers signature body treatments and facials for exfoliation. Take home Privai Velvet Verbena Scrub, $54, or Jindilli Blossom Body Scrub, $40, the same lines they use in their luxurious treatments.

Book a morning Mani and Pedi at S Nails and Spa. Then schedule a Night Spray Tan. In a pinch, in home nail options like press on nails work great, too. Try KISS, Gel Fantasy from Target. Spray tans should always be done by a professional, not yourself. Schedule GLOW to pop-up anywhere. It's quick, easy, and convenient.


Trim your hair and treat. Color trends like balyage, eclipting, micro highlights in caramel or tiger's eye are subtle and can give your hair a refresher. This is a great time to add a gloss or conditioning treatment. A downtown favorite is Orbit Salon.


Get GLOW to come do your hair and makeup three hours before your event. You've already downloaded the app, booked your pro for on or off location, and confirmed your appointment. It's beauty that comes to you, takes the stress out of the process, and allows you to get treated like a celebrity. Now get out there and show 'em how you GLOW!
