New York Fashion Week: Lounge Life!

New York Fashion Week ShopStyle

New York Fashion Week may look glamourous on Instagram (and in many ways it is), but for us bloggers, it can be a hectic week of back to back events and absolutely no sleep. Luckily, there’s a part of Fashion Week that’s exactly the opposite. In the New York Fashion Week lounges, coffee and champagne flow freely and you can relax with your BFFs (Best Fashion Friends). Talented hair and makeup artists are often on hand to help you look picture perfect in your street style photos and if you’re really lucky, you’ll be treated to some sweet swag such as makeup, handbags and jewelry. It’s every girl’s dream come true!

When you’re running around all day, lounge time is a must to recharge yourself and your cell phone. While many bloggers use their Fashion Week lounge time to get out posts in between shows, I like to make the most of the branded experiences and catch up with my blogger friends. If you didn’t have time to do your hair or get a manicure before the shows, a lounge can be a lifesaver. Maybe someday we can make New York Lounge Week a thing?

Here’s what my lounge life has been like so far this New York Fashion Week:

R+Co Hair

Stylists from R+Co did an amazing job on my hair at the ShopStyle Lounge and taught me how to do modern curls.

The Maybelline Lounge on the top floor of Milk Studios was the perfect way to end the day. They had an awesome deejay and I got to stock up on my favorite Maybelline products.

Ojon Treatment Triage Hairstyling Backstage at Milk Studios


Sunday afternoon, I escaped the chaos of New York Fashion Week and got my hair styled by a top celebrity stylist with Ojon products backstage at MADE Fashion Week at Milk Studios. I have very thick straight hair that I can never get to hold a curl so when I got to my styling appointment, I had my heart set on some serious curls and the stylist totally came through.  When I hit the Fashion Week lounges later in the day, I got so many compliments on my hair and my friends who have never seen me with curly hair were going crazy liking my photos on Facebook.

I must say I’m a huge fan of Ojon.  Their natural repair-based treatments are like an oasis for your hair in that they smell and feel amazing all while adding much-needed moisture to hair damaged by the stress of Fashion Week.  Any hairspray that can get my hair to hold a curl that well is absolutely unbelievable.  For intense hair repair, keep an eye out for Ojon’s Rare Blend Deep Conditioner set to launch in March.
