School is Back in Session!

The No Makeup Makeup Look

The No Makeup Makeup Look

Our popular beauty classes are back for 1-2 nights a week this September and October, with a new class offering: No Makeup Makeup! With the help of our professional makeup and hair stylists, you'll be able to achieve that celeb-worthy natural beauty on the daily in no time at all. We're also bringing back old favorites such as Blowout Bootcamp, where you'll learn how to add volume, waves, and salon-worthy shine to your daily hairstyle with only a hairbrush and dryer!

Goldplaited's first class, "Curling Iron 101", was born out of a client request: If I bring in my curling iron, will you teach me how to use it? We're so glad she asked. Since that initial course, we've taught nearly 500 community and private classes and have 1800 students registered through our ticketing site Dabble. Curling Iron 101 is still our most popular class, with Blowout Bootcamp and Contour & Highlight techniques being close seconds.

According to founder Coco Strong, beauty education is one of the core principles of goldplaited, which is why we're excited to get school back in session and start sharing the knowledge of our stylists with clients this fall.

"As founders of a beauty business, many people are surprised to hear that neither myself or my sister Mal perform hair or makeup services. We are beauty consumers at our core and had to learn how to do our own services for years before the advent of express finishing services. While we know most of our clients prefer to outsource their hair and makeup needs to us, we really appreciate the "DIY" spirit of many of our guests."

Our hands-on approach to beauty education differs in many important ways from other kinds of DIY learning, such as YouTube tutorials or step-by-step infographics in blog posts. You'll dive right into the technique with the support of goldplaited team members, who are always working towards making their salon a supportive and positive environment.

It can be frustrating and isolating to try to master a skill via YouTube. If you aren't getting it, there's no one to help you out or to encourage you to keep trying. With goldplaited classes, however, even the most novice of students can benefit, and many come back for more!

Best of all, goldplaited is more than happy to teach private group classes! Liven up your pre-game makeup routine by grabbing your friends and some wine (the salon is BYOB!!) and learning how to get that night-time glam look with the Eye Makeup Looks class, or plan a fun get-together during the week with Braids 101.
