Beauty Playtime Hair And Makeup LEssons & CLASSES
VANCOUVER & TORONTO

Treat yourself (or a group of girlfriends) to the ultimate in fun indulgence - personal hair and makeup lessons aka Beauty Playtime!

Makeup and hair are skills that no one is born with, yet women are expected to magically pick them up along the way because it is "part of being a woman". *Wait, what? *Don't feel guilty or ashamed if you're not great with your hair or makeup - neither were we when we started!

Youtubers and online beauty gurus make it look so easy, right? Maybe you're one of many women who thinks "if only I could find the time to watch that tutorial then I could do my hair and makeup too". Or perhaps you actually have followed the tutorial only to get less than beautiful results and thought "I guess I'm just not good at this"... (we have been there too!).

Don't feel bad that you couldn't find time or couldn't make it work - what was missing was the personal touch and guidance of a professional who loves to teach. At Michael Fels Beauty we LOVE teaching women how to enhance their natural beauty through one-on-one lessons or even group tutorials!

We see it as a delectable treat - a truly decadent personal indulgence - to take the time to learn how to make yourself look more beautiful. Treat yourself today!
