WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — Anyone thinking of getting their nails done should put their money away; the Washington Heights Business Improvement District will pick up the tab Wednesday night.
The BID, along with Uptown Fashion Week, is hosting the first ever Uptown Beauty Expo on Jan. 15; a two-hour whirlwind of makeovers, hair and nail stylings, cocktails, appetizers and even health evaluations. The event is free to the public.
"It's an opportunity is to give back to the women of Nothern Manhattan," BID director Angelina Ramirez told DNAinfo about the event, held at El Morocco on 145th Street and Broadway from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Ramirez added that health consulations, including dental evaluations from Cascada Dental Spa, will be a large part of the event.
"It is an expo, but it's a beauty and health expo. We're looking at beauty, inside and out."
The expo is the kick off event to the Explora Beauty Week, a two-and-a-half week run of discounts at beauty merchants across Washington Heights and Inwood. The list of merchants participating in beauty week will be revealed Wednesday, Ramirez said.
