6 On-Demand Beauty Services That Bring Mani-Pedis Right to Your Desk
Meetings, conference calls, project briefs, reports and lunch leave us with little time to keep up with beauty routines. While there may be an hour a week you can run out to get a blowout or a mani-pedi before happy hour, why let productivity slip when we live in the era of on-demand services? We selected some of the best below for you to book and be sitting pretty in no time — all from your office or home.
Manicube ($12+): Currently available in New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, these nail technicians can take care of your hands and feet in between a jam-packed day of meetings while you respond to emails. Who needs an actual nail salon when you can set up biweekly appointments directly through the site?
cityMANI ($21+): No matter how busy your day looks, you can squeeze a 15-minute service into it with this mani-only company that lets you book a single appointment for you or one for the entire office. When the time comes for a touch-up, you can even schedule an at-home mommy + me session.
On-Demand Hair + Makeup Services
