BEAUTY CALL: STYLEBOOKINGS.COM
You don’t have to be an a-list celebrity, model, beauty editor or fashion industry insider to be treated like one. Acclaimed hairstylistÂ George Kyriakos is the brainchild behindÂ stylebookings.com, an online concierge of carefully curated hair and makeup artists for hire in your home or office that can be booked inÂ as little as 24 hours before you need them or within 7 days in advance.
There are other online beauty booking sites but none of this calibre of artists. â€œWeâ€™re the only ones that offer truly experienced editorial hair and makeup artistsâ€”people who have portfoliosÂ and work on set,â€ says Kyriakos.Â His own roster of clients includeÂ celebrities and VIPs likeÂ Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore and Anna Wintour. You might recognize work he’s done for American Vogue, Marie Claire, Elle, Harperâ€™s Bazaar or know his name as the hair pro who created Carolyn Bessette Kennedy’s unforgettable wedding day style.
Kyriakos recently named renowned makeup artist Vincent LongoÂ as Creative Director of stylebookings.com.Â Longo is the founder of hisÂ eponymous makeup line and continues to work with beauty icons and celebrities including Elle Macpherson, Sharon Stone,Â Padma Lakshmi, Jennifer Lopez andÂ Claire Danes. â€œThe knowledge and skills of our experts is what first attracted me to the site. When you book with us, you know exactly what level of quality you are getting,â€ says Longo. The team includes hair and makeup pros who routinely work on celebrities, ad campaigns, photo shoots, commercials, television, runway shows and more.
The way it works is you sign up on stylebookings.com, put in your location, date and time you’d like your service and all the available pros will appear. Simply read their bios, view their portfolios and decide who you’d like to book. It’s that easy!
The three levels of service available are:
- Directors, (George Kyriakos and Vincent Longo): Fees areÂ $500 for a cut and style, $400 for a hairstyle/blowout, and $400 for makeup.
- Executive Pros, (with 15 or more years of experience): Fees areÂ $375 for a cut, $290 for hair styling, $290 for makeup, and $390 for hair styling plus makeup. There’s also a men’s cut and style service forÂ $165.
- Associate Pros (less than 15 years of experience but whose clientele is similar to that of an executive pro): Fees areÂ $180 for hair styling, $180 for makeup, and $275 for hair and makeup.
*AÂ 4.5% service fee will be added to all bookings.
If you’re in the New York City area, you’re in luck as right now this is where you can book services but “there are plans to expand to Los Angeles, Miami and Las Vegas soon since we can only offer services where editorial stylists work,â€ says Kyriakos.
When you really need to look your absolute best,Â stylebooking.com is the answer!
