Pucker Up!

April 14, 2014
Much to the relief of frizz-phobics everywhere, the blow-dry craze is already sweeping the US (DreamDry) and Asia (Best Blowout Bars), but indubitably important in equal measure to a sparkling night out is an impeccable face finish. Well, new SoHo make-up bar Pucker is almost certainly at the crest of a new wave in grooming vogue. Conveniently located next to the Laicale hair salon, Pucker offers not just the standard eight chairs for application, but also a plush dressing room where you can lounge about, grab a shower, change your outfit, plonk any extra baggage in a locker, and fix your ‘do with their selection of nifty hair products before hitting the town.

A full-face application takes up to 45 minutes, and can be tailored or picked from a portfolio of six looks, including the vampy red-lipped, smoky-eyed ‘Belle & Ball’ and the neutral-hued au-natural ‘Beach & Blanket’ look. Alternatively, plump for a makeup quickie of 25 minutes which offers a choice between the eyes (with a simple lip application – they carry a staggering 77 shades) or the complexion (with simple eyes), with lash- and brow-shaping available as add-ons. Individual or group classes are also available for those hoping to learn the tricks of the trade, not to mention wedding day specials that can be catered for with bubbles and bites. Pucker up, ladies!
