Sure, on-demand beauty apps have been around for a while, but they've boomed in popularity lately, with more options than ever before. And while at-home services like these were once only available in big cities like New York and LA, they're now available nationwide. The services offered have expanded too, going beyond just blowouts to include everything from manis to massages. And with prices that are typically pretty comparable to what you'd pay in a salon or spa, there's no reason *not* to jump aboard this beauty bandwagon-especially during holiday party season when time is of the essence.

We suggest downloading these eight apps and booking your next beautifying session, stat.

I absolutely love the concept of being able to relax at home and get services done. It can be so stressful driving and parking at the salon. I started using Vagaro in 2003 for clients that wanted in home services its great lets you book the time and you can block out what time your not available. check out for eyelash mobile services

On-demand beauty apps are revolutionizing the beauty industry. They enable people to get beauty service through their smartphones with just a few taps. The native mobile apps for Android and iOS are capable of providing quality services in real-time. I read an article about on-demand beauty app ensure success: These apps allow managing customers, scheduling appointments, making payments via different methods, managing the commission of service providers and a lot more. The features of apps depend on the required custom solution demanded by the beauty industry for their customers’ satisfaction and smooth business operations.
