Unlimited Blowouts Are the New Must-Have Monthly Subscription Service
When the idea for Class Pass came about, we were pretty stoked. Pay a flat monthly fee and gain access to tons of different fitness studios around your city? Sign us up. But after you’ve totally rocked that Pilates class, you’re going to be in need of some pampering, right? Right. Well now you can get the same kind of service but for beauty — well, for blowouts in particular — from not one, but two different companies.
With Beauty Pass and VIVE, you pay a flat monthly fee of $99 and gain access to an unlimited number of blowouts at beauty editor-approved salons across NYC (sorry, folks, this particular service currently is only available in the Big Apple). Considering an average blowout usually costs about $40, this could be a total steal for all you beauty mavens out there. Plus, appointments are super flexible: Beauty Pass blowouts scheduled between 8am and 8pm will be confirmed within 15 minutes of scheduling, while VIVE promises the ability to book an appointment with as little as 30 minutes’ notice. If you wake up and decide you’re in need of some Wednesday morning hair help, go ahead and book an appointment at a nearby participating salon and stop in on the way to work (’cause why wouldn’t you?).
While the two services are currently only available to those in NYC, Beauty Pass and VIVE both have plans to expand, both location-wise and in services provided. While the potential additional services for VIVE are not specified, Beauty Pass has definite plans to launch unlimited manicures for $49 (WHAT?!), a spa sampler for $59 and unlimited spray tans for $99 (use wisely, ladies).
San Francisco, we love you, but if these services don’t head west soon we may leave you for the city that never sleeps (and consequently never had bedhead either).

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
