I have a secret to tell you. Remember those gorgeous hair-dos and the glam makeup that Michelle and I were rocking yesterday? Welllllllll…….we didn’t do it. But, because keeping secrets is no fun, I’ll tell you who did. A little app called PRIV……ok, more like a makeup artist and hair stylist, but you know what I mean! Let me tell you, though, this app is about to become your lifesaver/secret weapon/best friend. Forget about schlepping yourself to the spa. Forget about taming your wild mane. Forget about putting on your makeup before an event. With PRIV, you can book all sorts of beauty/spa/fitness treatments, and the best part is, you never have to leave your house (or hotel room) to get them. Yes, that’s right, they come to you. Amazing, right?!
For the last night of our NYC summer guide (coming June 10th), Michelle and I wanted to get all dolled up before heading out. But after running around all day, we knew we would be short on time. PRIV came to the rescue, having us hair and makeup ready (despite the awful heat) and on to a fabulous night of cocktails in no time. Everyone that we worked with was nice, friendly, professional, and extremely, extremely flexible (which is key if you’re getting ready for an appointment/event and it happens to change…yes, I’m speaking from experience!). Everything is done right from the app (including selecting what services you want, booking appointments and paying). Whether you’re having an NYC staycation or you’re visiting from out of town this summer, PRIV is the perfect way to treat yourself and get glam.
P.S. PRIV also offers mens services and, besides NYC, they are available in London, LA, the Hamptons, the OC, and Austin, so if you’re lucky enough to live in one of these areas, do not miss out on this great app!
A huge thank you to PRIV for the hair and makeup.
