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:
Download the app .
Enter your deets aka Your Name, Address and Credit Card Information.
Pick the service(s) you want.
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.)
You will get an email confirmation from Priv.
On the day of service, there is no need to tip or pay via cash. Everything is done by your service provider via Priv.
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.
Repeat as needed.
