Pop-Up Party

Sat 6/16, noon – 5 PM

North Avenue Beach


The forecast calls for isolated thunderstorms, but rain or shine, Allure magazine is throwing its second annual Pop-Up Party at North Avenue Beach this Saturday. Guests can sign up at any of the event’s “beauty booths” for a variety of free services: manicures and makeovers by local freelance stylists and mini massages by therapists from Red Door Spa. And everyone walks away with a goody bag full of product samples like Essie nail polish, Samy hair products, Jane Iredale cosmetics, and Eucerin lotions.
