Between extended work-from-home hours, home-based learning, live workouts, and endless online shopping (which then lead to multiple sprints to the door every time a new delivery arrives), who has the time or energy to glam up—let alone go out to get a manicure these days?
Perfect for time-strapped urbanites, busy mums and lazy girls alike is Singapore’s rising supply of on-demand, house call mobile beauty services that deliver spa- and salon-style experiences, all in the comforts of your home. It’s a full suite—from gel manicures, facials and lash lifts to refreshing blowouts and deep tissue massages, some complete with aromatherapy, ambient music and candles for your very own sensorial sanctuary. And the best part, they’re actually not much more expensive than the in-outlet treatments, making them extra convenient and accessible for anyone in need of some pampering me-time.
Here, we round up some of the country’s most popular, on-demand mobile beauty services to book now.
