Summer is almost here, which means the heat is coming and carefree days relaxing by the pool are just around the corner. The last thing most of us want to be doing in the sweltering heat is worrying about our beauty routine—plus, mascara running down our faces hasn’t been “in” since the emo days nearly 20 years ago (!!). Luckily for you, it’s totally possible to ‘automate’ your routine for a low-maintenance, high-performance look.Read More
Our esthetician Sarah offers laser hair removal, and clients often ask the same things. We know permanent hair removal is a bit of investment, so let’s answer your most common questions
Does laser hair removal actually work?
When it comes to laser hair treatments, all are not equal. The machines that are used range from inexpensive and ineffective, to top-of-the-line and worth every penny. The machine we have at Byōōdē Bar is the highest quality, which means better results in fewer visits. Even the best laser machines need more than one visit to achieve maximum results because the hair follicle needs to be in the right growth phase to be successfully “disabled,” but you shouldn’t need to come in more than a handful of times to get results. Beware the discount places that require 20+ sessions to achieve results—they often don’t work and are just a waste of your money. On paper it may look like a great deal (you can go so many times for such little money!), but in the end you’re committing far more time to end up disappointed.Read More
When it comes to beauty, I'm pretty much the most low maintenance girl on the planet. I wear makeup maybe twice a year, I live for my activewear, and I take 5 minutes flat to get ready. I'm also incredibly frugal, spending most of my money on my family instead of myself.
But when I was planning my wedding for August, 2018, I knew my usual routine just wasn't going to cut it. And the truth was that I always wanted to try tinting my eyebrows and getting eyelash extensions, but have never found the right "excuse" to splurge. Well, what better time than your own wedding, amirite?Read More

Like we covered in April's blog post, sugaring is a gentle and effective method of hair removal that uses actual sugar, lemon, and hot water to get the job done. Sugaring sticks to the hair but not to the skin, making it a less painful option over waxing and with results that typically last longer. Plus, it's safe for virtually any part of your body!Read More

Hot, then Cold
Like the name suggests, the Fire and Ice Facial starts by warming the skin to exfoliate it, then cooling it to soothe and moisturize. First, a resurfacing masque is used to make your face silky smooth and youthful. Made with things like retinol, niacin, and botanical acids, this masque creates that warm, tingling sensation for the "fire" part of your facial…Read More
