City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

I never though I’d have it in me but my fellow New York style mavens, I have a confession to make…since its opening in April of this year, I have not purchased one thing from Topshop and I have only been inside the store 1.5 times! (The .5 occasion was because I had to turn around and leave after taking about 5 steps into the store for fear of spending a couple of months rent!)

Suddenly though, an offer that just can’t keep me out of the store! For one week, John Freida has teamed up with Topshop to offer up a team of beauty experts, fully equipped with everything you need to get glamorous for your next holiday party. Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon, Jouer cosmetics and nail specialists M2M will be serving up their beauty specialties, ready to prep you for moments under the mistletoe.

Services vary from a beauty makeover to manicure. You can have your locks styled with products from John Frieda or consult with Style Advisors on emergency fashion dilemmas as you sip on complementary beverages and flip through the latest fashion mags.

All treatments are free of charge, but guests are encouraged to make a $5 donation to The Lower Eastside Girls Club, an organization dedicated to teaching young girls to “learn, have fun and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world.”

What: John Freida Makeovers
Where: Topshop Ground Floor, 478 Broadway & Broome
When: Monday, December 14th through Monday, December 21st, daily 1-7pm
