Belle of the Ball

A new kid on the styling-bar block, BELLESA has managed to bag a great spot on D’ Aguilar Street – ideal if you’re heading straight out after your pampering sesh. The venue is a big, bright-white space with eight beautifying stations (and an extra two in a VIP room). The List tried the hair styling ($380) and makeup ($850) combo before a big event. The stylists provided both services simultaneously – making for an efficient (though intense!) 60 minutes of pampering. The results were great: the makeup artist used a mix of her all-time fave products rather than pushing one brand, plus our plump curls held up until the night’s end.

Special price through Dec 31: get a 45-minute wash and style for $330 and add on makeup for $680. Shop 701-2, 7/F, Century Square, 1-13 D’ Aguilar St., Central, 2116-0600, www.bellesahair.com
