If you did not know by now, I'm a major app girl. Every major function of my work and personal life is made easier due to one app or another. And so when two weeks ago I was approached by PRIV to try out and review their new beauty on-demand app ( and get my grooming done at home so I can do more work at the same time?!), to say I was enthusiastic was an understatement.
I know there are a whole bunch of beauty service apps out there now - but I can safely say this is by far the most comprehensive. Here are the services provided by Priv in a nutshell:
Fitness - Personal Training, Yoga & Kickboxing
Massage - All Kinds of Massage including Prenatal Massage
Hair Services - Haircuts, Blowouts, Updos, Braids and Dry Styling, Children Haircuts
Spray Tans - Airbrush Tan from the comfort of your home.
Men's Grooming - Haircuts, Haircut with Upper Body Grooming, Mustache and/or Beard Trim & Style, MENicures
The best thing about Priv is that for most of the services, you can book a group service - so if you ever want to schedule a girl's night in with some beauty treatments scheduled in, Priv is your go-to app. Sounds exciting yes? I also heard that there are plans to have at-home lash extension services.
So for my review, I decided to go with a spa manipedi. My nail specialist is the lovely Teresa Nguyen who showed up with loads of these Deborah Lipmann polishes (she swears by them) and all the tools needed for a nail service in her wheelie.
My spa manipedi service was $90 flat because all tip and gratuities are included which is another great feature of Priv. All their services range from $50 to $350 all in, and when I consider the time that I save not having to go out, drive, get parking, drive back etc. I think the price point is very reasonable.
