Top 5 : Beauty tips for the Holiday

December 14, 2015

Ladies and gentlemen, time to get chic! The neighborhood’s specialists know exactly how to make you look à la mode for the 2015 Holidays! Surprise your whole family with your fresh looks!

HAIRSTYLING: #iwokeuplikethis



Everyone knows Old Montreal for its tapas, wine and cocktail bars. But did you know that the neighborhood has its very own hairstyling bar? What a fantastic idea! This year, Kim, co-owner of BLOME, offers you a neat-tousled look. The idea is to give your hair a wavy #iwokeuplikethis style. You could also opt for a loose weave if you want to dance all night without getting too hot. What’s great about this style is that even after a tousled night out, you’ll still look as fresh as when you left the salon… or almost 😉



Rainspa offers people a wide variety of body care treatments, such as charming manicures. The experts there really know what’s in vogue: dark colors like burgundy, grey and green are very fashionable. However, if you prefer simplicity, opt for a naked manicure (nude beige). Give your nails the chicness they deserve!

MAKE UP: Smoky is Sexy


We had the opportunity to meet David, owner of the Privé par David D’Amours salon, who styles many Quebecois stars such as Marie-Mai, Karine Vanasse and Marie-Pier Morin. He believes that “It is crucial that haircuts and colors are personalized.” His first piece of advice: Go natural! For hair color, find some middle ground between blonde and brunette – go bronde! Keeping it subtle is the key to keeping it beautiful.

FOR HIM : the Gentleman


Gents, for a holiday look that will meet your significant other’s high expectations, go for the gentleman haircut. The experts at Mantelier guarantee you will WOW people around you with this cut. With a fade on the side, and volume on top, this cut will allow you to try a wide variety of styles. When paired with a voluminous beard, you will embody charming manliness. Take good care of your beard by visiting a professional barber; unkempt beards are not in vogue..!

Thanks to these great tips from our #friendsinoldmontreal, you will definitely make people jealous on the night of the 31st!
