Beauty... that’s more than skin deep! That’s the PrettyCity mantra. We believe in the power of confidence and self-care, of taking pride in looking your best and of putting yourself first. We also believe that the prettiest traits are kindness, gratitude, compassion, and inclusiveness.
With that in mind, we created PrettyCity.com as not only a resource for the best beauty + wellness tips, tricks, products, and destinations but also, and equally as important, as a for-profit business that gives back and does so significantly.
In 2018, we set out to relaunch our wildly popular Pretty in Pink charity campaign with a new name, new twist, new charity partner and much more aggressive fundraising goal, by allocating a huge portion of profits to charity.
We’re so glad you’ve found PrettyCity and the very best in beauty + wellness. We want to bring out the very best in you, from hair to heart.
Stick around for the journey, subscribe now and stay tuned for exciting new details about our next campaign.
