Trying to find the time to squeeze in a facial, manicure, or massage?
We get it—beauty appointments (albeit much deserved) can often fall by the wayside due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But imagine if you could have them take place in the comfort of your own home, or even your office, minimising travel time and working around your schedule?
That’s exactly what these entrepreneurial businesswomen had in mind when they their created mobile beauty offerings, with the aim to provide the same relaxing experience and level of service you expect from an in-salon treatment.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of our trusted spots around the country.
We can’t count the number of times we were in need of a mani/pedi, but yet haven’t been able to find one close enough to the GP office to pop in on our lunch break or after work. Which is just one of the reasons that founder and CEO Iman Davamoni created Purely Polished—as a busy working mother, she realised the demand for mobile beauty services was on the rise. Purely Polished’s highly skilled technicians service both Sydney and Melbourne, and offer everything from a deluxe pedicure, a classic manicure (with the options of SNS, gel, and acrylic, too), and also tanning and lash enhancements, that you can experience from home, the office or even a hotel room if you’re on vacay.
For those based in Byron Bay, Aleshia Marie’s extensive menu consists of a selection of ‘Spa Journeys,’ which feature a combination of personalised treatments and traditional spa therapies, but also facials, massages and makeup applications. Better still, you have two choices on where you would like your spa treatment—you can either visit her heavenly space located in the heart of Byron, or you can have a therapist come to you. Aleisha and her team regularly service both Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, in addition to Melbourne and Sydney using only 100% vegan and cruelty free products.
There are beauty maintenance appointments and then there’s a massage. It seems like an indulgence, but it shouldn’t be, which is why Still Beauty founder Joanna Beecher has carved out a niche for herself within the mobile beauty space by offering massages only. Reaffirming that massage should be considered beauty maintenance for your body, Beecher and her team come to your home and customise your massage treatment to your wants and needs, believing that every individual body has different concerns. Complete with music and soothing massage oils, it gives new meaning to the words at home spa.
