Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s THIS APP :

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

  • Makeup - Brow Shaping, Makeup Application, Countouring, Airbrushing & Makeup Lessons

  • 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.

And PS : Here's why you should think twice before going for that $20 nail service at the nail salon.

The Priv app is really simple to use. All you have to do is:

  1. Download the app .

  2. Enter your deets aka Your Name, Address and Credit Card Information.

  3. Pick the service(s) you want.

  4. Schedule A Service. ( Note : Don't get confused when you see your provider being available only for one time slot. Click on his or her profile and you can see other time slots available.)

  5. You will get an email confirmation from Priv.

  6. On the day of service, there is no need to tip or pay via cash. Everything is done by your service provider via Priv.

  7. Take a photo and/or give feedback about your service provider by the app. Service providers with higher ratings naturally will get booked more/often.

  8. Repeat as needed.

  • Mrs. L O'Brien says:

    I’m so thankful for the generation today because we get to experience convenience, comfort and practicality by using apps that help ease our lives. During my time, gadgets and apps like this don’t exist, I had to go around town and find the best place where I could relax and forget the hustle and bustle of the city. But now, with just a click on the mouse or tap of a keyboard, I can find the best people and apps and services at the convenience of my own home. Just like this Priv app. Lucky for me, their services are available in my city. Truly liberating!

    • Heidi says:

      You’re so right! In this day and age it is so much easier to find exactly what you are looking for and the best place to find it. Kids these days won’t know how good they have it 😉

  • Ashley says:

    This is so convenient! The luxury of spa treatments right at the heart of my home! I am so going to use this app really soon!

  • Dylan says:

    I think I found the perfect gift for my girl. This app should help me solve my problems. Ha! A day of spa and beautifying, definitely what mah girl wants. Thanks fo this!
