Virtual Beauty Consultations
Alpha-H Live Skin Consultations
Skin wigging out from the change in lifestyle? Book yourself in with an Alpha-H complexion expert. All 20 minute online sessions are complimentary, and you’ll be able to receive personalised advice and prescriptions from the comfort of your own home. Simply fill out the online form on the website and one of their highly trained members will be in touch to set up a session over Skype or FaceTime.
Ella Baché Virtual Salons
Missing your local beauty therapist? Ella Baché can reconnect you through ‘Virtual Salons’. The free feature allows you to receive one-on-one advice via video chat, and the opportunity to purchase recommended products from the same salon online. An excellent option if you’re wanting to support your local favourite.
MECCA Beauty Consultations
MECCA’s doors have reopened, but its digital platform MECCA LIVE lives on. The 24/7 online beauty broadcasting programme offers beauty consultations via FaceTime, so you can receive the same 5-star in-store treatment at home. You can choose between a 15 minute pow wow or a 45 minute skin or makeup consultation. It’s free and it’s fabulous.
Makeup Try-On Technology
If two things have boomed since restrictions, it’s online purchases and hair colour switch-ups. And to ensure you can do both with little regret, L’Oréal’s Modiface lets you try on hundreds of hair colours from the Colorista and Excellence ranges, as well as the lipstick to match your new look.
YSL Virtual Try-On
As far as live cameras go, YSL’s Virtual Try On is very realistic, and the selection to sample is just as impressive too. From the iconic Rouge Volupte Shine, to mascara and even foundation, you’ll be able to try on a full face of glam, with the bonus of not having to wash your face afterwards.
MAC Virtual Try-On
MAC’s extensive library of colours can be overwhelming, but with 200+ shades available to try on, it certainly helps to narrow it down. Apply both eyeshadows and lip colours by uploading a photo, or give the live camera a whirl.
Take-Home Professional Colour Kits
Raw by Anthony Nader
Step away from the box dye, Nader insists. The Sydney salon doesn’t want your colourist’s hard work to be undone, so they’ve launched the ‘RAW Colour Box’ complete with your custom-made colour (permanent or semi, depending on preference), toner and gloss. Ready for a pamper sesh?
EdwardsAndCo were quick to create at-home hair colour packs, as well as a new video series ‘The Lockdown with EdwardsAndCo’ on IGTV. The salon’s eight locations have come together to solve every at-home hair problem, from maintaining your fringe to taking care of your extensions, and even beard-trimming tips.
