At Home Beauty Treatments: Expert How-Tos and Helpful Tips & Tricks with #HomeBeauty

Salon
Beauty
Expert Advice

While shelter-in-place has become a large part of the “new normal,” and as select cities across the globe begin reopening, we’ve all had to find potential new avenues to explore our personal wellness, from virtual fitness routines to honing in on our ability to cut our own hair. While shifting your yoga class from the studio to the living room was easily doable thanks to the advent of virtual classes of nearly any type, when it comes to beauty routines, times have proved a little trickier.  

With so many salons and spas closed, as well as pretty much every other business out there, it's been the perfect time for our hair to get wild, our nails to go unpainted, our two eyebrows to become one, our standard beauty treatments to go by the wayside, and proper facials and masks taking a backseat to an extra hour of sleep. 

It’s also been the ideal time to try out new DIY beauty routines, especially those you may have been a little too, shall we say, embarrassed to try prior...? (Look, it’s perfectly normal to slather mayo all over my hair before bed, throw on a shower cap, and “see what happens” in the morning, Karen. Gosh.). From skin scrubs made from ingredients you found in the cupboard or an actual mud mask, to new beauty uses for standard glitter and an apple cider vinegar facial treatment, the ingenuity of the human spirit cannot be contained, especially as it pertains to at-home beauty. 

So in between your next skin treatment, before you give your S/O a haircut, “trying” DIY bangs despite what everyone told you on a Zoom happy hour, creating a personal spa day, tweezing, scrubs, a face mask that isn't really a face mask, and testing out new ingredients for a skin peel, get your phone out and share it with us! 

Welcome to #HomeBeauty by Mindbody 

You guys are creative. That’s for sure. And to showcase all of this creativity, as well as connect you with expert stylists to help with any potential "oops” moments, we’ve introduced the world to #HomeBeauty by Mindbody. 

It’s easy to join in on the fun: 

Simply tag your photos and videos on Instagram using #homebeauty (be sure to tag @mindbody as well). We’re keeping an eye out for all submissions and will be featuring many of them across our social outlets.

What we’re looking for...

You tagging, following, and posting images of: 

•   How much you miss your salons and spas  
•   How you are maintaining any sort of beauty routine during quarantine (good
     or bad)  
•   Ordering products (if you’re doing that) 
•   Doing at-home hair/beauty tutorials 

We’re then taking your submissions and tagging in our expert stylists and practitioners to give you a few practical tips & tricks to not only keep your routine intact but potentially improve on it.  

Through our IGTV, we’ll get your questions answered with “custom” videos and personalized shout-outs. 

That’s it! You’re most likely already showing the world what you got, and this is just a bonus of being able to connect, in real-time with stylists and practitioners. 

We’re all in this together. And while we’ve helped say thank you to our instructors in a number of different ways, our salons and spas also need to feel the love. Wherever you are in the world, let’s come together and connect with them.  

 

Follow @mindbody on Instagram, tag #Homebeauty, and get your custom expert advice today!

Community Close-up: The Kyles of Kyle House Fitness

Expert Advice

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
