Mama’s Night Out at Sephora Redefines a “GHD” (Good Hair Day)
posted by: Amber Johnson
Every other month, Mile High Mamas throws a Mama’s Night Out to bring Colorado’s social media moms together to collaborate and connect.
And to party. Big time.
On Tuesday evening, the Sephora in Boulder hosted a pamper party wherein I experienced an unprecedented transformation. (Spoiler alert: some women equated my metamorphosis to that of Clark Kent.)
But first things first. A Mile High Mamas party is not a party without a great cause. We partnered with charity-minded Mom It Forward and all attendees donated make-up and beauty products to support SafeHouse of Denver, a women’s shelter that serves victims of domestic violence and their children.
As moms, we were deserving of a few indulgences of our own and Sephora invited some of their leading vendors to help us in our primping process. Bare Escentuals and Urban Decay gave make-up demos. Bliss and Nude Skincare both did express skincare consultations. We found out why the Clarisonic skincare cleansing brush is their top-selling item in the world of skincare with mini-facials, and massage therapists from the Boulder Country Club gave 10-minute chair massages.
Ace photographer Aimee Giese took professional headshots of the women and Tiara Training made everyone feel like a princess by distributing tiaras.
A Mile High Mamas party would not be complete without giveaways and they were in abundance. Every woman went home with a beautiful potted flower and tickets to the Colorado Garden & Home Show February 13-21, which has family-friendly diversions such as the 5,500-square-foot Ice Age Entry Garden. Other glorious giveaways included:
*Four tickets to the Avalanche hockey game on January 22.
*Four tickets to Disney Live! Rockin’ Roadshow on February 5 and 6.
*Four tickets to the Monster Jam on February 13 and 14.
*Coupons to try Qdoba’s fabulous new children’s menu…for free!
*Free coupons for Sara Lee Soft & Smooth bread (healthy) and their delicious desserts (not healthy).
*A sundry of Sephora products.
Which was our equivalent to dancing on the tables.
Now, back to my transformation. I have had the same curly mop of hair since I hit puberty. I’ve occasionally straightened it but the process was so time-consuming without great results that it was a rarity.
Enter: styling pro Diana Jacobs and her miraculous GHD “Good Hair Day.” This flatiron hails from the UK
and is touted as the best styling tool in the market. While I certainly can’t back that claim, I can personally attest I have never had results like this. In fact, so great was my love for the GHD that Mile High Mamas will be offering one as a giveaway next week. Diana straightened my hair in a mere 10 minutes and the result was a sleek, smooth, Clark Kent-esque transformation.
Just call me “Superwoman,” which is how Sephora made everyone feel that evening.
A special thanks to Sephora for partnering with Mile High Mamas. If you are a local business how would like to host one of our gatherings, please contact me. Also, we are not an exclusive group.
