Imagine if the Avon lady was Pat McGrath and Guido Palau rolled into one. That was the brainstorm of Lauren Remington Platt, a descendant of the Remington Arms dynasty and staple of the New York social scene, who turned a personal beauty conundrum into a successful online business venture called Vênsette—a professional hair, makeup and nail service available at any Manhattan doorstep.
While working as an analyst at a New York hedge fund, the Columbia University graduate, now 27 years old, was frustrated that the nearest hair salon closed at 6 p.m. So if she had an evening event, Platt would sneak away at lunchtime for a blowout. Then after work, she’d dash to Bloomingdale’s makeup counter for a touch-up.
