Beauty 360: Beauty from the Inside-Out

Meredith Davis is a girl just like you.  She likes to hangout with her girlfriends, loves beauty & fashion & giving back.  As the founder of Austin Beauty Guide, she has single handedly changed the way beauty is presented in the city of Austin where she lives.  Just like CW, Meredith believes beauty is from the inside-out; we must take care of our inside first - our mind & soul - and then we will feel confident & beautiful.

I've personally had the opportunity to sit down to pick her brain and boy is she smart, too.  Meredith defines what it means to truly be living out who you are Created To Be and hasn't allowed any fear or doubt to get in the way of her dreams.  She's truly a girl you want to know.

Next Month, Beauty 360 will be the held at the Palmer Event Center on November 9th & 10th and it's a weekend you don't want to miss.  If you are in the beauty industry, booths are still available.  For details & tickets, click the link the below.  CW will be there showing off our new magazine design and so much more.  Hope to see you there!

Beauty 360: Beauty & Wellness Expo

Q. This is Austin Beauty Guide's* 1st 360 event, why is it important for you to do this and how does it impact the Austin community?

Beauty360 was born to represent complete inner and outer beauty and wellness. The word “beauty” is so much more than exterior looks. It encompasses all aspects of who we are from how we feel, how we think and what we put in our bodies to indulging in the things that make us look and feel our best. Research shows that when you look good, you feel good, and it is my hope at Beauty360 that guests find new ways to treat themselves, slow down and learn to take care of themselves first.

Not only that, but it is important to me personally to give back and support a cause that fits our mission. We have teamed up with Susan G. Komen Austin and the Komen Austin Race for the Cure. According to Komen, one in eight women will fight breast cancer in their lives, so it's important to help support the cause and grow awareness of this disease. Most importantly for Austin, 75% of the funds raised here stay in Central Texas, which provides FREE local breast cancer screening, education and medical services as well as financial and emotional support.

Q Will other markets being seeing you and if so, what can they expect? 

We do have plans to expand into other markets, and we are currently strategizing our growth. Unfortunately, I can't reveal what that looks like yet; however, I can say that Beauty360 will be an annual event with plans to bring other markets to Texas. 

Q. What are the benefits for beauty insiders to be a part? 

Beauty360 was created to be a fully engaging and experiential event. The event will include complimentary services & treatments, product sampling & giveaways, pop-up fitness classes, shopping, runway shows, speaker presentations and panel discussions. We are pulling Austin's leading experts in beauty, fashion and wellness to educate consumers on the latest products, trends, services and advancements in the industry. This event will not only be fun, but it will be educational, inspiring and interactive.

Q. Who can come and is it limited to just local businesses. 

Of course not! Beauty360 is open to the public. All are welcome to attend the event. It is my hope that guests come to enjoy the experience of Beauty360 and walk away inspired, pampered, renewed and fulfilled. The event is also benefiting a great cause so the more that attend the event, the more money we raise for the non-profit. In addition, the event is open to local, regional and national businesses. 

Q. What’s the future of Beauty 360? 

Beauty360 will be hosted as an annual event. As we grow, we will invite bigger beauty brands to participate and showcase their latest products and services. We plan to be featured as one of Texas' premier beauty & wellness events. 

Q. What’s your personal fashion inspiration?

My personal fashion inspiration is both classic and chic. I dress for myself and am not persuaded by the trends. I don't shop by designer; I shop by style and what works best for me!
