Events Story: A Beauty Salon with Character
Sisters Sonia and Linda have created a different type of salon that caters to events such as weddings, and soon bachelorette parties. The salons are private, off the main street, so that you feel as if you’re receiving a personal experience with each visit. Service is available in English, similar to the best salon in Christchurch that you might want to visit.
A Different Make-up Style
Events Story specializes in threading as well as Lebanese style make-up. My idea of applying make-up is adding shaky eyeliner, a brush of mascara and if I’m feling wild, a little red lipstick. When Sonia offered to do my makeup as well as my eyebrows, I knew this was to be an adventure for me.
First, I was treated to a wonderful facial using Dermalogica products. I’ve been using my beloved Yonka face care since I was 16. I must admit that I’m honestly considering switching to Dermalogica after that facial.
Threading Your Eyebrows: Try it!
After failing to convince the salon girls, all unfairly beautiful in figure hugging dresses and heels, that my eyebrows couldn’t possible be thick enough for threading, I leaned back in my chair and acquisced. A minute later, with no pain, I had a shape to my eyebrows for the first time.
If you haven’t tried threading I would, now, highly recommend it. It’s quick, effective and doesn’t damage the skin like waxing. They are also looking to offer a microblading service but first need to book more clients to get the experience the staff needs.
Ever Had Your Make-Up Done?
Normally a red kind of girl, rather than pink, I found that I looked like an entirely different person after I had my make-up done. It’s amazing what you can do with makeup. If you’ve seen any beauty bloggers on Youtube then you know what I’m talking about. I like this video:
Another unique service provided by Events Story is the option to have a photo shoot after your beauty treatments. These photos of me were taken quickly by the owner. What I’m talking about is a full photo shoot in a studio with a professional photographer. Fun! I think I would need some bubbly beforehand to loosen me up a little. Many models in Marseille have used Events Story to create their portfolios.
