After a long day of event after event, we were happy to take a breather at the Sunset Soiree nestled poolside at the chic Avalon Boutique Hotel. beGlammed took over the poolside cabanas and gazebo to showcase a wide selection of various pampering and style services, all of which were and are available at a moment's notice via their app.
For the past 5 years, beGlammed has been on site in the desert, ready to glam up celebrities and influencers alike for the most fashion and style heavy weekend in the desert.
Hosted by model Shaun Ross and DJ Joel Mignott, the afternoon was a celebration of self expression and luxury with non-stop beats by the pool and feverishly busy cabanas filled with experts catering to everyone's beauty and pampering needs.
Perhaps best known for their hair services, beGlammed brought in skilled stylists from Tatiana Karelina to braid, pin, and add flair by way of ring "piercings" and colorful neon extensions, resulting in stunning custom creations,
Everyone left with "stunna" braid creations that only commanded "wows" by onlookers! Conair and Fekkai products were in hand to finish and keep styles in place. (Check out the gallery and @tatianakarelinaofficial on Instagram for more images of her handiwork.)
Who knew you could have someone at your home or hotel within 3 hours, expertly piercing your ear with a new diamond stud? We were surprised to learn about beGlammed's service, but realized it makes total sense to be at home or hotel, in the most comforting and relaxing environment possible.
Speaking of piercing studs... event sponsor and hook-up app, Tinder was on hand, providing water bottles to help cool things off. Tell me if I'm moving too fast, but I think these two are a perfect marriage! Had another bad date? Want to spiff up that profile pic or get dolled up something fierce by Friday? Call beGlammed, they've got you covered with their mani-pedis, makeup application and hair styling options all at the click of a button. Also, keep in mind, this coming October beGlammed will have a special Halloween service for all-out gore or glam, depending on your costume needs.
Our favorite was the Alex and Ani gifting booth that included gorgeous jewelry pieces of your choice from both their women's and men's lines. Our favorite pieces were the tiger's eye bracelet and the silver tone chain link choker with magnetic clasp. It's lovely to see this eco-friendly brand expand and grow their offerings, especially during earth month, as their environmentally conscious pieces are created using recycled metals.
Café Lola served up adorable cupcakes, macarons and lettered cookies that were (almost) too pretty to eat! They even had a wall of donuts, reminiscent of that carnival ring toss game, but tastier!
The beverage options were also delighting, with grab and go kiddie pools of Peroni beer, a choose your style gin and tonic bar hosted by Silent Pool Gin, watermelon infused vodka by Ciroc, tequila by Casa Mexico, and Winc poured Summer Water Rosé. Talk about sophisticated intoxication!
The Sunset Soiree continued to go on full force well into the early eve as the music got louder and the dance floor got fuller.
And as attendees continued on to their dinners, other parties and even straight to the festival, one thing was certain, if you were at the beGlammed Sunset Soiree, you definitely left looking and feeling, fab. This was an amazing blowout shindig and remember for your next blowout, why don't you give beGlammed a try? They'll be at your doorstep in 3 hours or less.
