OVERTIME: Beauty Makes Round the Clock House Calls
I’m not sure whether this is a symptom of us being over-worked or over-embellished (come on gals… you gotta admit that there is a lot of upkeep involved with being a woman. Nails, facials, waxing, tanning, any number of hair services. I’m exhausted just thinking about it.) but aestheticians, salons and stylists in the many of the major cities are now offering house-call, round the clock services.
Need a tanning session at 5am? No problem. How ’bout a midnight facial after a rough and tumble day at the office? Eyelash extensions? Mani-Pedi? After-hours Botox? Again, no problem.
This may have all started as a way to boost sales with the down-turn of the economy. Hair and Nail Salons started offering appointments until midnight (complete with a complimentary glass of wine). Which has sprung full-force into a full-service, 24-hour industry for those ladies who are willing to forgo sleep so long as they’re not forced to show up less-than-perfectly turned-out.
