StyleSeat Takes On Dallas

This past week, a few members from the StyleSeat team headed east to Dallas, TX, to meet our StyleSeat professionals in the area! As they say, everything in Texas is bigger and our StyleSeat meetup was no exception. The evening was filled with fine drinks, tasty bites, and exceptional conversation about the beauty industry and the site. Professionals that came to the event received gift bags for attending the meetup filled with sample products and StyleSeat goodies!

Check out these pictures from the event below:

Black it out: This is the one night of the year to go totally over the top with your makeup and not look ridiculous. Try a darker-than-normal smoky eye or that lip stain you’ve been dying to try. Adding bold, dark colored makeup to your costume this halloween will make sure you stand out in the crowd.

Play the part: Whether your dressing up as a zombie or a ghost, be sure you’re dressing to impress. The more realistic your costume is, the more believable you’ll be to others. Plus, it’s the perfect way to make your bold makeup look even more awesome. Again, it’s the one time you can, so go all out!

A shot of blood: Blood, blood, blood. It’ll make your costume that much scarier for the holiday. Use it as decoration, as part of your makeup, or our favorite; make blood red cocktails for your Halloween celebration.

Big hair, don’t care: The bigger the hair, the better right? Not only is voluminous hair so in, it’s also a great way give life to your costume. Try teasing your hair at the roots or using a super hold hair spray to keep your high hair up all night!

Lace up: Lace can add a touch of classiness, yet also sexiness to your halloween costume. It is perfect for delicate, fairytale-inspired characters.

Good luck to everyone with their Halloween costumes this year!

StyleSeat Teams Up with Big C, New Me!

This past month, StyleSeat joined forces with a non-profit organization called Big C, New Me. Their mission is to help men and women of all ages as they overcome the challenges of living with cancer. This inspirational organization provides confidence building programs, as well as educational and support programs.

We teamed up with the organization for one of their Power Crew events in Atlanta this month. This event included complete makeovers for cancer survivors aged 13+, complete with wardrobe and photo shoot, as well as professional advice for managing appearance-related side effects of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

We’re proud to support Big C, New Me in their ongoing efforts. They always in need of volunteers, so if you’re a beauty professional, head to or email and mention StyleSeat to get involved today!
