If you’ve ever needed a last-minute manicure or pedicure for a date, or were in desperate need of a facial before a romantic weekend getaway, then you’d probably love using Pretty Quick. After taking about two minutes to create an account, you can – quite easily when in a rush – select which service you’re in need of and when you want to get it done. Pretty Quick then matches you up with a nearby salon or spa and quotes you a price. So, it’s kind of like Priceline meets How Do I Look?
Pretty Quick recently wrote some online dating beauty tips(you know, so you can look your absolute best in your profile picture and eventually for that coveted in-person meet up), and featured Next Date Chicago and Project Fixup, a local startup dating site. Their tips:
We keep hearing a lot about how some of our members love to use PrettyQuick right before their dates to make sure they look fabulous and feel extra confident. After several adorable stories from our users, we decided that it was time to write a piece on our favorite dating sites that take it upon themselves to take the stress out of dating. Right now we are in love with Project Fix Up and Next Date, two amazing dating sites that offer very unique and different experiences to help you start dating and make sure you are keeping the romance alive. We’ve also paired each site with the perfect beauty trend for you to rock when you give them a try!
Project Fix Up
Project Fixup is Chicago’s newest digital matchmaking service! Unlike other sites, they do all the work for you!
You pick a theme that interests you (say, whiskey fixups or coffee fixups) and they’ll set you up with someone at a great venue at a time that works with your schedule! Sort of like a PrettyQuick but for dates, um… perfect! Also, Project Fix Up will soon be partnering with local charities in order to feature ‘charitable dates’. That way you can give back to your community while meeting someone new with similar interests. How cool is that?!
So, Project Fix Up found you a great guy for you to grab a couple of drinks with… what’s the perfect look?! Brown smokey eyes will give you the sexiness of a smokey eye without overdoing it, just make sure you pair it with a soft lip for a more natural look. If your date is something a little more casual go for a less dramatic eye and pair it with a fun and flirty pink lip.
Next Date Chicago
Now you’re all set with a great guy BUT you’re having movie night, again. It’s time to stop hinting at your boyfriend to be more creative with his dates and refer him to Next Date Chicago. Not only does founder Nicole publish adorable and unique date ideas in the Near Northwest side of Chicago, she also plans customized date nights for couples both fresh and seasoned. The dates usually involve a meal and an activity, from dinner followed by live music or dance lessons, to a picnic lunch followed by racing go-karts. They can occur at night or during the day, depending on the couple’s availability or their anniversary, if applicable.
So, what’s a perfect look for one of Nicole’s amazing dates? Stop by Blowtique for a quick 3o minute blowout that will instantly make you feel like a bombshell or request one of their new braid styles for a fun and flirty look that can go from day to night, effortlessly!
