OK busy parents, here is an app everyone needs to download ASAP. And it’s not a kid app, although if you need one of those, here are some of our favorites.
This app, BeautyNow, is all for you. Whether you need a root touch up or a relaxing spa appointment, this free iPhone app helps you book open appointments from 4,500 salons and spas from across the United States. Think of it as OpenTable for beauty services. I’m all about the apps that make life easier for busy moms, and this one started by Houston-based mompreneur Kathleen Jennings is pure genius. I love supporting mom-run businesses, and not only is Kathleen a fun new friend, but she’s also a mom of two young boys, so she completely understands the demands and time constraints that come along with being a busy parent.
It’s difficult for me to book ahead because I feel like something always comes up on the very morning of an appointment that I booked eight weeks prior. Before I know it, my roots are sparkling with hints of gray or my gel mani suddenly looks like a reverse french manicure. The BeautyNow app is quick, easy to use, and perfect for when you suddenly realize you have exactly enough time for a quick appointment before school pick up or if you want to browse salons and spas with open times for a day later in the week when you know you’ll be free.
Be sure to also follow Kathleen on her popular BeautyNow Blog where she shares tips on makeup, skincare and fashion. It’s one of my favorite blogs to follow and I know you’ll love it, too.
What’s one of your favorite time-saving apps? Leave me a note in the comments below. xo
