Have you ever needed a beauty or wellness service last minute, but couldn’t get an appointment, and didn’t have time to go to the salon? Well, with Priv, those days are gone! Priv is a smartphone app that brings on-demand beauty and wellness services to your front door. And when we say “on demand,” we mean it! A professional can be to your door in as little as 30 minutes. Whether you need a mani/pedi, a blowdry, haircut, spray tan, massage, fitness/personal training, makeup, men’s grooming or more, Priv can deliver a professional to your home, office, or any other location, in a snap.
Simply download the app on your smartphone, set your location (Priv is currently available in NYC, Los Angeles, and London) and you can search services nearby. Once you’ve set your service, time, and date, you enter your credit card number and your Priv professional will be on the way. The process is simple and seamless. Like Uber, tax and tip is included in the listed price, so there are no awkward moments trying to figure out what to tip your provider (yay!).
We tried the service for ourselves and it was so easy and professional. First, Priv’s customer service is extremely helpful and friendly. We wanted to try eyelash extensions and they helped recommend a provider and set up the appointment that worked with our schedule. Within 24 hours, lash specialist Hilda Grigorian, was at our front door and within 1.5 hours we had a perfect set of gorgeous lashes. Hilda did an amazing job. She was meticulous, super patient and helpful. We definitely recommend her if you’re interested in lash extensions in NYC!
If you’ve never had lash extensions before, the process is painless and relaxing. It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours while individual synthetic lashes are adhered to your natural lashes. If you have sensitive eyes, you may experience some watering, but it’s comfortable for the most part. One thing to keep in mind is letting your professional know what type of lashes you want. When it comes to extensions, there are various lengths and curls, so be sure to discuss what results you’re looking for before the service. Lash extensions are semi-permanent and they can last up to a month, so do your research beforehand to get your desired result.
