When Aria Beauty, a Vancouver based luxury hair company, was interested in launching an ongoing makeover column, they put out feelers to see who was most interested. The majority of applicants?…Moms! It was clear to see that this group of hardworking, often underappreciated ladies were in dire need of some pampering. Whether they were working full time, part time, or stay at home, many of these women hadn’t had a day to themselves to truly enjoy, relax, and indulge themselves in…years.
Aria Beauty chose contest entrant Siobhan Morrison of Maple Ridge to be their first ever makeover subject. Siobhan, who turns 30 this week, is a full time mother of two. Her husband, a Vancouver firefighter, took the kids for the day to allow her to fully indulge at her photoshoot. The makeover at BE Studio started with champagne and treats, and of course a “before” snap of Siobhan makeup free and hair up- what she described as her daily “mom” beauty routine much of the time!
Vancouver celebrity makeup artist Brianna Errelat (www.briannaerrelat.com) clipped in some Aria Beauty 18″ extensions and then curled Siobhan’s hair with a 25mm Bellini curling wand for a sexy, tousled look. She transitioned three different stunning makeup and hair styles throughout the shoot- beginning with a fresh day look to match the fun, flirty clothing and moving into smouldering evening look complete with black evening dress. Six outfit changes, three hair styles and some serious fun later, Siobhan’s husband arrived to collect her for an evening out (including babysitter!) We even got some souvenier snaps of her glammed-up and goofing around with her little son.
In addition to an Aria Beauty Ultimate Style Set that includes a wand, straightener, blow dryer and accessories ($369, www.ariabeauty.com) Siobhan received the following prizes from exclusive Aria Beauty retailers:
- Spa Boutique (Microdermabrasion facial) – $125
