New York is having an amazing weather moment right now. And if the sun is giving you those warm-and-fuzzy vibes, here are a couple ways you can look as good as you are feeling. Before you book your next hair appointment and the best blowout bars and nail salons, nab some free and discounted services at these four primping events happening in New York through the weekend.

Lily Pulitzer x Target event in Bryant Park

Though the much-anticipated Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection officially drops Sun 19, you can score VIP access to the vacation-ready wares at the “Lilly Resort” right now in Bryant Park, complete with Ping-Pong tables, a juice bar and complimentary manis using Essie x Lilly Pulitzer polishes. You have until 8pm tonight to snag ready-to-wear garb like a Fan Dance shift dress ($38); we imagine New York’s preppy set will pounce on these pieces, some of which cost as little as five bucks.

Bust Craftacular's Primped

Feminist mag BUST is known for hosting kick-ass parties, so you won’t want to miss this shopping and beauty extravaganza on Sunday. The $5 admission fee gets you access to more than 65 indie sellers peddling everything from vegan beauty products to retro home goods, plus free services such as Fringe Salon braids, a Floss Gloss nail bar, tarot readings and more. Plus, the first 300 attendees score a free BUST tote stuffed with seasonal swag.

Glamsquad’s Braids Waves and Brunch event

This on-demand beauty-app service is hosting a get beautified, two-hour brunch at Ainsworth Park on Sunday at 1pm. For $35, you get to choose one brunch entrée and sip unlimited mimosas and bellinis while beauty professionals style your mane with braids, up-dos and waves.

Benjamin with Negin Zand New York pop-up

Want to get your mop cut, colored and coiffed from a celebrity stylist? Benjamin with Negin Zan (formerly Salon Benjamin) is hopping across the States from West Hollywood for a two-day pop-up in Midtown and Soho. Schedule an appointment on Sunday or Monday anytime between 9am­–6pm and mention Time Out New York for 20 percent off your service. 47 W 57th St, #2. Sun 19 9am–6pm. 465 W Broadway, A (917-689-1637).  Mon 20 9am–6pm.
