Local Love: Wonderblush, My Fave Beauty Studio in The City!

One of the best things about finding THE place to pamper yourself is to feel you are right at home.Wonderblush has been the best-hidden gem of the city for a while now and it has all the perks you’ll look for in a single spot: the best decor (oh hello lovely palm trees wallpapers, pink everywhere), a cute coffee shop that you can enjoy while getting your hair did, the funniest and sweetest team that will cheer up your day and the best products when it comes to hair care. As you can see, this girly spot is not only the best, but my go-to when we talk all about HeyMaca hair, color, and styling. (bonjour, perfect bangs!)My obsession is so real, that my lovely master stylist, Blanca is the hero behind my hair and now also my little ones’ hero! For the first time in 5 years, Nico loved someone and let me tell you, this is a huge accomplishment for this sweet boy of mine.This week, I was lucky to talk to Melanie, proud owner, girl boss, mama and adorable entrepreneur that I admire TONS.  

– Tell us a bit about this lovely idea, Wonderblush

Wonderblush is a pretty place for all beauty needs under one roof. We offer hair, makeup, lashes and spray tan services. We’re here to help women find their perfect look for a night out, a wedding, a red carpet event or for no occasion other than you want to spoil yourself and enjoy some me-time (don’t we ALL need that)? We welcome clients in our light and cozy studio at any time but we can also travel to their home or office for their convenience.

– What made you decide to open your business and why Wonderblush?

When I was getting ready for my wedding, I was overwhelmed by the “beautifying process”: not only did I have to manage a full-time work schedule, I also had to manage a full-time appointment schedule with salons that were so widely different and so far apart – talk about a mess! Pretty soon, a dream emerged from the chaos: to create a friendly, sophisticated and fun full-service beauty destination for women. 

I took the first step and left my job as a marketing director at Coca-Cola to go learn the art of makeup at Giorgio Armani (needless to say, my husband was freaking out!). Then, my adorable daughter came into our lives and with her, my desire to make her proud and build something special for our future. And so in March 2015, Wonderblush finally came to life.

– Any tips for future entrepreneurs in the city?

Do what you are passionate about. This is what led me to leave the corporate world and becoming an entrepreneur. You will put a lot of time and energy into your business and if you care about what you do, believe in yourself and your project, you will find ways to overcome obstacles and be successful. Another tip would be to surround yourself with like-minded people that share the same values and believe in the dream and the mission. Strong teamwork automatically leads to successful achievements and positive outcomes.Thank you, Mel! We can totally feel the empowerment, we love Wonderblush!
