Are You Rush-Ready?!


Recruitment week is quickly approaching! If your daughter is planning on rushing, she’s probably already thinking about her hair, makeup and outfit for each round of recruitment. To take some of the stress off of her (and you), we have some tips for where to get rush ready in Oxford!

There are various clothing stores on the Square that have perfect rush outfits for your daughter. For the first two rounds of recruitment, your daughter will be provided with a T-shirt to wear. For the last two rounds (sisterhood and preference), girls typically wear a dress or skirt to each house. Check out Neilsons, Frock and Hinton & Hinton on the Square to complete your daughter’s rush week wardrobe!

Also located on the Square, Zoe has a huge selection of makeup and beauty products to make your daughter look and feel beautiful for recruitment. It’s important to feel confident during recruitment week, and Zoe has all the cosmetics to make sure your daughter does! Stop by the store on the Square and see their wide selection of hair and skin products, fragrances and accessories.

La Rousse Salon and Spa offers many different beauty services to get your daughter rush ready. Hair services, spray tans, facials, body scrubs, manicures, eyelash extensions- you name it! La Rousse has a plethora of beauty options to make your daughter feel pretty and put together for recruitment.

Ladies, I think we can all agree that we feel like we have our lives together when our nails are done. Lacca Nail Club takes appointments for manicures and pedicures and offers both regular and gel polish. Lacca also offers memberships which include better rates and member exclusives.

Located in the same salon as Lacca, RK Beauty Bar will make sure your daughter’s hair looks picture-perfect for recruitment. From color services to blow outs, our friends at RK have the hair-styling expertise. RK also does AMAZING makeup application and facial waxing, in addition to all of your daughter’s hair needs!

If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop, make an appointment with BloDry Bar! They do spray tans, blow outs and dry styles, lashes, and full makeup application that will be sure to WOW!

Oxford Dental has teeth whitening services to bring out your daughter’s million-dollar smile. Tooth coloration is inevitable but with Oxford Dental, healthier and whiter teeth are possible!

Katherine Beck, Lily Pad and Olive Juice are currently taking preorders for Bid Day baskets and Rush Happies! If you’re unfamiliar with what these are, they are gift baskets customized for your daughter and her new greek affiliation. If you order a Bid Day basket, your daughter will run home to her sorority house at the end of recruitment week and she’ll have a basket of gifts and accessories with her new sorority letters waiting for her! When I was a freshman going through recruitment, I wish my parents had known about Happies and Bid Day baskets because majority of the girls in my pledge class had a gift waiting for them.

If you plan on coming to Oxford the weekend of Bid Day, join us for our 2nd annual POM MOMosas event! While your daughter is busy at Preference Round, come mingle with other moms over brunch and mimosas at The Coop in The Graduate hotel! We’ll be there on Saturday, September 28th from 11am-1pm and would love to meet you and connect you to other Ole Miss moms!
