Back-to-School Makeup (and how to keep up with it)
There are more choices in hairstyles, nails, and beauty than ever before in human history. While variety and diversity aren’t new, smartphones have consolidated all human knowledge and play in a device you always have at arm’s length. So if you’re wondering about back-to-school makeup, hair, or beauty in general, you’ve reached the right place.
Back-to-school is always a super busy time of year. Between checking off the supply list ordering new fits and syncing up family schedules, there isn’t a lot of time left over. So it makes perfect sense to combine appointments whenever you can.
Thankfully you can get you and your entire family (including the fur baby) booked for their back-to-school hair and grooming appointments. With Booksy’s Friends & Family feature, you can add the whole crew and book their appointments in just a few taps.

But there are just a few things to consider before you try out a new technique or drop new products in your cart. Before you commit to a new look, consider:
The time commitment for the look
The best tools and products for the look and what works best for you
The right products and tools for your skill level
Some applications or makeup designs, like a nude, no-makeup makeup look, take minimal effort, few products, and can be done in under five minutes. Other techniques, especially if you are unfamiliar with them, can be tricky to perfect.
Lucky for you, our talented provider community makes luxury looks so accessible that they’re literally in your pocket.

Perfecting your back-to-school routine
You don’t have to go far for makeup tutorials. While TikTok and YouTube have an endless supply of walkthroughs, nothing quite beats personalized advice. That means advice for you, your skin conditions, tone, and ideal makeup aesthetics.
Sometimes we don’t realize all the resources we have right at our fingertips. You can get groceries delivered to your door. Your fridge can reorder milk when you need it. Why not have your MUA on proverbial speed dial?
On the Booksy app, you can schedule virtual consultations with your stylist or makeup artist. You can fit in the consult between laundry and school distinct meetings without skipping a beat.
So while you are trying that gorgeous fox eyeliner technique that ends up making you look like your toddler’s arts and crafts project, your MUA can walk you through the look, step by step, all from the comfort of wherever you are.
Booking with a Busy Schedule
Every big publication covering Beauty from Vogue to The Every Girl stresses how important it is to schedule time for rest and relaxation.
But sometimes Type As have a difficult time “switching off.” After all, the to-do list never ends. Luckily, technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds. You can find time to relax and be a productivity master.
Block schedule your entire family’s hair, skincare, and grooming appointments at the same time. You can add Friends & Family to your Profile and book them while you’re booking your own appointment. Partner, kids, even your fur babies–booked with only a few extra taps.
Fitting all the back-to-school errands and appointments into your schedule can be havoc. Use our newest feature to make this part of your life just a little more convenient.
Just go to the Booksy app, tap Profile, and select Friends & Family. Once you add everyone, you can schedule appointments for them, all in one place.
Back-to-school makeup and hair is important, but it doesn’t have to take up a huge chunk of your time. With our new Friends and Family feature on the Booksy app, you can make sure the entire family is all set for their back-to-school appointments (so you can take some time for yourself).
We hope this new feature will save you loads of time and headaches during this busy time of year. Whether it’s haircuts, gel manis, or a virtual consultation to really perfect a new look, there is a professional on Booksy that is ready to help.
