I’m super pleased to announce that I’ve found a solution for all the busy ladies out there who enjoy getting their hair, makeup and nails done, but struggle to squeeze in bookings. I mean, I for one find myself putting off these appointments, due to travelling after work, working late and everywhere closes, not wanting to take myself to a salon/someone’s house, being pushed for time….
But how amazing when a superstar hair stylist, makeup artist or nail technician can just rock up at your home and carry the service out for you, in the comfort of your own lounge/kitchen/where ever in your palace you want to be made beautiful?
I discovered blow LTD – a beauty booking app – a few months back, just before it launched. With being a busy beauty blogger and a makeup artist myself, I’m lucky to sometimes hear about new launches before they properly get leaked out, and this was one in particular that really excited me.
So what is blow LTD? In a nutshell, it’s a downloaded beauty app that lets you book hair, makeup and nail appointments to your own home. You browse their services, be it an evening makeup look, a hair styling session, or a manicure, and select your ideal time and date. A stylist will be selected for the job, and they’ll turn up at your home, armed with their tools, skills and professionalism. Very very easy…
I decided to download the app and use it to book in for a gel nail treatment last week for my best friend’s wedding. I wanted a soft pink shade to match my peach bridesmaid dress and cream bouquet. The nail expert arrived 10 minutes early, which was lovely, as there is nothing worse than waiting. She set up her professional kit, shown me her colours, talked me through the process, and set to work right away.
With choosing a light shade, it took a number of coats, therefore the session took around 45 minutes from start to finish. It’s just so comfortable and relaxing indulging in a beauty session sat on my own sofa!
The therapist was polite and friendly and did a great job – really couldn’t have asked for any more from my blow ltd experience.
It depends what you’re looking to book when it comes to costs, but some indications include:
- Blow dry’s starting from £40,
- Full make-up starting from £30
- Gel manicure (like mine) costing around £45
- Lashes starting at around £90.
Everything is included, so no extras for using the app or arranging the therapist’s transportation etc. Just a very easy-to-use and professional service.
I also find it great for those who want a recommendation for a therapist, and have absolutely no idea where to start.
Thank you blow for getting me all wedding ready!
