Every new school year your tween or teen wants to look a little different than the year before. She wants those magical stares and sounds of friends’ flattery. And just because you won’t be next to her on the first day of school doesn’t mean you can’t be a part of the magic. In these final weeks of summer help your daughter reinvent herself for school and have a blast doing it!
In House Style: You don’t have to go anywhere for beauty these days. The two of you can start by watching hair and makeup tutorials on Youtube. Your daughter might already have a few favorite beauty gurus and some tutorials she’s been dying to try out. Take turns doing her hair and makeup and be sure to snap pics of cute styles she’ll want to wear during the year.
Sense and Scents: Once you create a look she absolutely has to be seen in, run over to the mall for some inexpensive fun outside of the house. To be sure you don’t over spend, leave your credit cards at home and just bring a small amount of cash for snacks. Have fun testing out all the new fragrances, even the expensive ones, and experiment until she finds her new signature scent—hopefully one you can share! Then, to make sure you get the best price, go online and check out Perfumania.com. For a limited time you can get 20% off of a single item (code: ENT12B).
Evening Stroll: End the day with a slow hike or stroll around the block. Walking in the evening will help you both wind down and will give you a chance to hear what’s been on her mind. After playing and preparing for her new school year debut she’ll be more prepared to open up. She’ll love her fresh new look and you’ll love bonding over beauty.
