Having a professional hairstylist and makeup artist at your disposal is no longer reserved for the Hollywood set. Everyday women, managing multiple responsibilities and schedules, can also book on-demand beauty services straight to their home, office, or hotel room in as little as an hour. These online platforms and mobile apps allow women everywhere to look glamorous without wasting precious time and effort.
Boston-based beauty tech company BeautyLynk quickly connects customers with vetted beauty professionals for on-demand services, which include blowouts, hairstyling, makeup, updos, and eyelash extension application.
Because many of BeautyLynk’s clients have ever-changing schedules, its cancellation policy is very forgiving. Cancel up to 20 minutes before the appointment and there will be no charge.
