Since it is officially the holiday season, Christophe Salon in Newport Beach, Calif., welcomed the colder weather and gift-giving with a beauty prep event. The salon offered some of its signature services including blowouts, skincare, Latisse, and manicures. A percentage of all proceeds went to Yachts for Tots, an organization dedicated to introducing underprivileged children to the majesty of the ocean.

Two manicurists worked the event, offering an array of professional polish lines including CND Vinylux, Orly, Essie, Seche, and OPI. Gel-polish removal services were also performed so that guests could partake in a charitable manicure.

<p>Rings were for sale from a local jewelry artist. I thought it was smart to retail a jewelry item that could complement a fresh manicure.</p>

<p>The salon is known for its hair services, which were part of the holiday soiree offerings.</p>

While Christophe Salon has been open for about nine years, this was the salon’s first holiday bash. The event took place from 5-8 p.m. and was open to the public. A DJ and local jewelry artist also showed up to support the event. Since the salon has prime real estate on the front of Fashion Island, salon fanatics were welcome to drop in and take a break from their shopping to enjoy appetizers, champagne, and beauty to benefit a good cause.
