New York Smash Magazine  


‘Tis the season to give, sparkle, and of course, attend parties galore! Throughout the whirlwind of winter celebrations, you’ll want to keep your beauty routine glammed in order to wow the room as soon as you walk in! Here are five tips to keep you looking and feeling your best at the next holiday rendezvous.

Holiday Style

1. Hair

The Trend:

  • Elegant up-dos
  • Go big with dramatic volume and curls

Say goodbye to the notion that holiday hair needs to be elaborate or complicated. This season, simple styles are all the rage. Slicked back into a ponytail or left loose to embellish with a crystal beret are the looks to rock this winter. Create an elegant up-do or dramatic, voluminous curls before your next holiday function. The talented stylists at Marilyn Monroe Spas can transform your tresses into these fab holiday styles. This way, you get to enjoy all the glamour and glitz without spending hours in front of the bathroom mirror.


2. Makeup

The Trend:

  • Shimmer and bling
  • Bright red lips

Bling it on this holiday season with playful shimmery makeup that is sure to make a statement. Create a winter wonderland look with the help of iridescent eyeshadow and bright red lips. Try Marilyn Monroe Spas’ Demure, paired with Marilyn Monroe Spas’ Signature Red Lipstick – the gorgeous duo will keep you looking Instagram-ready all night!

3. Nails

The Trend:

  • Holiday nail art
  • Themed manis
  • Red and gold

Joy to the world for holiday-themed nails. It’s the perfect time to show your individual style when choosing the colors and embellishments for your winter manicure. Decadent colors that are cheerfully bright or completely chill are the perfect addition to your party ensemble. If you are feeling daring, spring for a themed manicure. From classic red nails with gold accents to detailed nail art in the form of snowflakes, ornaments or extravagant gifts, the Marilyn Monroe Spas team is eager to recreate your favorite Pinterest looks and make all of your holiday manicure wishes come true.



4. Massage

The Trend:

  • Treat yourself to a relaxing pre-party massage so you feel and look fab

Constant gift shopping, family in town and preparing for all the various celebrations you just have to make an appearance at can be stressful. Save your sanity by treating yourself to a massage before your next event. Not only will you be giving yourself the gift of relaxation, but it will help you feel, and therefore, look your best. We recommend adding on a Marilyn’s Signature Fassage (our trademark service) to your Marilyn’s Signature Massage for a glowing and rejuvenated look. You’ll be able to see results immediately!

5. Gifts

The Trend:

  • Be a gracious guest and bring a gift for your host/hostess

Throwing a holiday party requires endless preparation and many stressful days leading up to the event. Be the hero party guest at your next function by bringing a thoughtful gift for the host or hostess. Show your appreciation with a Handbag Essentials Package gift set or better yet, give them an experience they’ll never forget with a Marilyn Monroe Spas gift certificate. The recipient will be grateful for a day of luxurious pampering and you’ll be able to procrastinate on your holiday shopping all you want, because you can order a gift certificate and even customize it with a unique design all from the comfort of your couch. To grab a great gift card for a special someone, visit
