As it gets closer to Lunar Chinese New Year, I tend to avoid making salon bookings because – (1) I try to avoid inflated CNY surcharge; and (2) There are a lack of good time-slots that fit into the schedule of a working adult. But honestly one can’t deny possible last minute grooming emergencies, or the need to impress an annoying distant aunt who’s always commenting on your looks or demanding to know your latest dating/marriage status.
So I found out that VANITEE, Singapore’s largest online beauty and wellness marketplace, was launching their VANITEE app! This app bridges over 500 verified beauty professionals with consumers in order to make it easier for us to explore, discover and book beauty services.
The app’s relatively easy to navigate and the bookings are instantly guaranteed to avoid disappointment. Moreover, you can be rest assured about the quality of their booked beauty artists, as all artists on the platform have been VANITEE-verified!
For all my readers, make any booking on VANITEE by 14 February 2016 and get a FREE Beauty Kit from VanityTrove worth $30 when you use this promo code – “VIKTORIACNY“!
I got to test out the 3D Eyelash Extension and Express Manicure service by Specialist Nail Center @ Bayshore area. I was impressed that my booking was instantly confirmed. 3 minutes later, I was chatting with Jane, the beauty artist at Specialist Nail Center, who instructed me how to prepare for the session (to have my eye makeup removed, and preferably no contact lenses). I could see the ratings for each and every beauty service provider, as well as how many times their services were booked, so it makes the decision making process easy!
4 Simple Steps to Book Your Beauty Service:
- Select your desired service – Nails, MakeUp, Hair Styling, Brow & Lash or Everything Else
