Back to School Beauty Looks to Try — Virtually or on Campus

Classes are about to be in session, virtually or physically, depending on where you live, and we want our DashBabes to look marvelous. We have everything you need to know to start planning your back-to-school lookbook now. 

Start with an A+ Mani 

Freshly polished nails can pull an entire look together, and this year’s fall runway was full of nail trends we can’t wait to try. 

The Minimalist Look 

Minimalist, clean nails are in and are super easy to DIY. File them to a short yet natural-looking shape and finish with a clear top-coat or your favorite peachy-nude polish. This chic mani gives off effortless elegance. 

Gothic Colors 

Gothic polish colors make their debut every fall, and this season it is no surprise that they are back. At your next mani-pedi session, try an uber dark polish like this Midnight Blue for the perfect on-trend autumn shade. 

Autumn Reds 

Like Shakespeare or Jane Austen, red is classic in our book. Each autumn we fall in love with deep red manicures using polish colors like oxblood or merlot to add a bit of glamour to any look. 

Accessorize Your Hair 

Hair accessories are an easy addition to an outfit and are quintessential for this year’s back-to-school look. Here are our tips to prep your hair for the first day back on campus. 

Oversized headbands 

Oversized headbands are in, and the trick to wearing an oversized headband that looks effortless and the grown-up is to style your hair first. We like headbands paired with beach waves or a voluminous blowout. 

Before you apply hair spray, gently put the headband in place, add your finishing touches, then lightly spray. 


Pearls in your hair are a necessary accessory this school season. They will be everywhere from pearled statement hair clips to dainty pearled bobby pins, and we love how versatile they are. 

Pearled bobby pins can be added easily to a messy bun or on clips to keep a few hairs from distracting you during a lecture. 

Give yourself a back-to-school treat. 

Pop into DashBar and let us take care of your mani-pedi plus blow-dry while you relax and enjoy the end of summer. Our DashSquad performs beauty services simultaneously, so you’ll have plenty of time to make it to your first class ahead of schedule.
