Hannah Bronfman's Party Prep Includes a Lot of Sweating
Hannah Bronfman is one of those people whose Instagram feed makes you feel guilty for vegging out on the couch (where you are scrolling through Instagram, of course). Because on social media, Bronfman is always doing a workout, or dressing up to go to a fabulous event, or traveling the world with her husband, Brendan Fallis.
We caught up with the DJ, Adidas ambassador, and soon-to-be-published author (her book, Do What Feels Good, is out January 8) to take us through her getting ready process for a bash at the Guggenheim. Bronfman, along with stylist Sarah Slutsky, says she plans her looks in advance. "This particular dress was chosen over a month ago," she says. When her outfit is set, she starts planning her hair and makeup. "For glam, as soon as I have on a look, I start to envision what the beauty look will be and what mood I’m trying to convey. I love working with creative hair and makeup people because I’m always down to take a risk."
As befits a certified fitness influencer, Bronfman has a pre-night out routine that includes sweating, "whether it's from a workout or an infrared sauna, so my skin has a nice glow." When it comes to working out, she says, "I actually love the feeling of being sore, but I try to stay away from workouts that cause a lot of inflammation like running." And when she gets home, she doesn't crash right away, remarking that: "My post-event ritual is getting my IG story up to date! I never seem to be able to just put something up on the spot, especially if I’m with friends and conversing."
Below, her diary from the annual Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party.
