Unfortunately, for many Daddy-Daughter duos, the options for mutually enjoyable get-togethers are few and far between. However, now thanks to Blushington fathers and daughters can gather in a class and learn about all things beauty together. The salon has launched the unique Makeup 101 classes where men can conquer the challenge of connecting with their tween or teen daughters through makeup.
“I wish I had a service like this to take my Dad to when I was younger,” said Nicki Maron, Chief Marketing Officer of Blushington. “I can’t tell you how many times I had to explain the difference between eyeliner and mascara!”
The inspiration for the classes came from a retired military father in Texas who wanted to know a little more about how to help his daughters’ beauty routines. From there, Blushington created the 90-minute class where fathers and daughters can learn important steps to beauty routines. Classes cover how to cleanse, tone and moisturize, how to contour and conceal and the (almost impossible) task of applying eyeliner and shadow, and even how to choose the right lipstick. A professional makeup artist will lead the classes while fathers and their daughters learn together how to apply products.
Rather than the parent telling the child what activity they will be doing, daughters get their start as a mini #GIRLBOSS and choose an activity they are passionate about. Breaking barriers, the classes empower dad’s to be involved with their daughter on something usually seen as a mother’s job, creating a bond for both.
“It’s normally the parent passing a passion onto his daughter. If a dad loves football, he’s going to bring her to a Cowboys game,” said Nicki Maron, Chief Marketing Officer of Blushington. “Dads and daughters have the opportunity to learn together, smile together, and most importantly, find a new mutual appreciation and respect for what goes into beauty!”
The group classes are held every Sunday this Summer from 3:30-5:00 p.m. at their Dallas studio, 4218 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219. Cost is $50 per Daddy/Daughter pair with a maximum of 4 pairs per class. 60-minute private lessons can be booked at your convenience for $125.
