METAVERSE MAKEOVERS : HOLOGRAM HOLIDAY

Hologram Holiday features Augmented Reality enhanced manicures, dreamy exotica soundtrack, and hypersaturated in-flight entertainment, where customers are teleported to an elusive neon mirage while having a beauty treatment conducted by the Hologram Hostesses in iNails. .

Hologram Holiday exists as the next incarnation of Metaverse Makeovers – a series of AR infused site-specific interventions and performances in beauty salons.
