With only a few days left in 2018, we’re reminiscing about what an incredible year we had. From hitting milestones to launching new endeavors to winning some amazing awards, 2018 was full of many accomplishments. We want to thank all of our clients – new and old – for their continued support, trust, and friendship. The past 12 months would not have been as incredible as they were if YOU had not been a part of them! Before we ring in the new year, let’s take a look back at some of La Pomponnee’s most memorable moments from 2018.
The Beauté Mobile Rolled Out
This summer, we launched the latest and greatest La Pomponnee experience – the Beauté Mobile. We took a used RV, glammed it up La Pomponnee style, and converted it into an event and promotional vehicle similar to a Hollywood hair and makeup trailer! Since then, we’ve taken this baby to photo shoots, community events, fundraisers, and even private parties. The Beauté Mobile allows us to bring our hair, makeup, massage, and nail services to YOUR event, wherever you are! Brides, you can even use it as your own personal getting-ready space on your wedding day…or elopement! Sound like something you want at your next celebration?

We Sent 25 Brides Down the Aisle
Here comes the (La Pomponnee) bride! It’s no secret we love dolling ladies up on the most important day of their lives. We’re so lucky that 2018 allowed us to do just that for 25 lovely women. Some were our regular clients, some we had the pleasure of working on for the first time, but they all looked amazingly beautiful. All of our bridal clients start out with a thorough consultation where we learn as much as we can about their wedding style and how they want to look for their big day. The dress, hair piece, veil, and vibe all influence our approach to hair and makeup. This year, we even released our Bridal Look Book that is full of various styles we’ve created in the past, organized into such categories as Classic, Glam, Boho, and everything in between. One of the biggest bridal highlights was styling the daughter of a bride we worked with 25 years ago. It reminded us of how far we’ve come and how many lives we’ve touched along the way. To all of our brides, thank you so much for your faith in our skills! We hope you always feel as beautiful as the day you got married.

We Were Crowned Best of the Burgh
In July, we celebrated being named Best Spa by Pittsburgh Magazine! La Pomponnee took the coveted spot in the publication’s 2018 Best of the Burgh reader’s poll. Another special thank you to everyone who voted! To recognize all of the winners, Pittsburgh Magazine hosted their annual Best of the Burgh event at Stage AE. La Pomponnee was on-site styling and braiding hair, giving free mini makeovers, and doing what we do best – dolling people up! Mark your calendars for early summer 2019 when voting opens again. We’re going for back-to-back championships!
Mec Modern Barbering is Coming to McMurray
Our most recent announcement just happens to be one we’re really proud of! Mec, our in-salon barber shop, is opening a space in our McMurray location. With services ranging from standard cuts to beard trims to hot lather shaves, Mec Modern Barbering is a one-stop-shop for men’s style, both traditional and trendy.
