The site is an excellent idea, and it would be especially useful during Fashion Week or before a wedding or gala. Unfortunately, right now they're solely in New York, and they don't appear to offer ancillary services like manicures. It would also be nice to see them eventually offer greater diversity in the looks they offer. Hopefully, though, Vênsette will be such a roaring success that soon we'll all be able to book our own big event makeup and hair with a few mouse clicks.
If you're a glamorous, time-deprived New Yorker with a big event coming up, new house call styling service Vênsette is making things just a little bit easier. The site allows you to log on, book an appointment to get your hair and makeup done, and then choose the makeup palette and hairstyle that you'd like. Looks range from the fresh-faced "Dew" palette and a French twist, to a pouty plum lip color option called "Uma" and a classic blowout. Stylish young women like Charlotte Casiraghi have been spotted using the service, and founder Lauren Remington Platt is a much-in-demand socialite herself.
