When Sephora recently launched a same-day Manhattan delivery service, we were dubious. After all, you're never far from a Sephora.
But then we thought about all the things we regularly get delivered--food, dry cleaning, coffee--and suddenly it seemed only natural to extend the convenience to our beauty routine.
Here, a few local salons that will bring their services to you:
Acqua Beauty Bar Hate the treacherous post-pedicure commute? Forgo the flip-flopped trek entirely with an at-home mani-pedi ($124 plus transportation) from beloved Union Square-based day spa Acqua. The dry-buffing, fruit-soaking, 45-minute Smoothie Pedicure ($90) is particularly luxurious. 212-620-4329 or acquabeautybar.com
Blow There's nothing a like a good blowout to make you feel like you've got your life (and frizz) in control. But for times when you can't make it to the salon, let the salon come to you. Blow's ironed-locks specialists will happily travel to your home, office or even gym to give you the straight story (starting at $99). 212-989-6282 or blowny.com
Valery Joseph If you've ever wished you could get a scary waxing on friendlier turf, you're in luck. The experts at this Madison Avenue hot spot make house calls for everything from highlights (from $250) to bikini waxes ($130). 212-517-2333 or valeryjoseph.com
