We've scoured the island for the best mobile beauty services to help time-crunched mums look and feel fabulous. From massages to manicures, here are the services to add to your speed dial, pronto!
We’re a little bit addicted to mobile beauty services in Singapore. Between the endless breastfeeding and nappy changing, planning weeknight dinners for fussy eaters, or running around between school, work and playgroups – where do mums squeeze in time to take care of themselves?
If your hair’s smelling of apple sauce (on a good day), your nails are chipping or your body could do with a good rub down, an at-home service can come to the rescue. Mobile beauty treatments are on the rise in Singapore, especially during the current pandemic, and they offer everything from massages to mani-pedis, and brow shaping to blow-dries. We say they’re a lifesaver for time-crunched women, so to help you unwind and look your best, here’s our pick of the best at-home services in Singapore. We like to call them the HoneyKids’ mobile beauty dream team!
Best mobile home beauty services in Singapore
1. The Big Blow
Launched in 2013, The Big Blow is Singapore’s first mobile hairstyling, make-up and nails service. They do all sorts of hairstyling for when you want something special: blow-dries, up-dos, braiding, irons and curls (alas, no cut or colour). Perfect for busy mums who need a quick fix, or new mamas who aren’t quite up for a visit to the hair salon. Gone are the days of looking like you put your finger in a socket! Home visits are available seven days a week between 8am and 6pm. Out-of-hours arrangements can also be made.
2. Niu Nails
Serene aka NiuNails is a nail technician extraordinaire who specialises in Gelish manicures and pedicures. Providing a full salon-quality service from top coat to base polish – plus nail art if you’re after something unique – she’ll get you sorted within the hour. She swears by Angel Pro Gelly Polish. She also travels island-wide and charges a transport fee according to your location. So, mums, nail that look you’ve been wanting!
3. Sole House
Now this is a massage service to put on speed dial. Sole House operates seven days a week, till 2am (so you can book a slot when the kids are in bed)! It offers the works – full body massage, back, neck and shoulder, plus foot reflexology. A certified therapist will arrive at your doorstep with a complete setup: massage bed, foot stools, fresh linen, spa music and products to melt away your knots and aches. Specially-trained therapists also offer prenatal massage for mums-to-be, to put you in a totally relaxed mood before baby arrives.
4. Tan @ Home
If you’re in need of a golden glow rather than the tango orange look, then [email protected] is the spray tan dream team you need. Chief spray technician, Margaret Treanor, will custom spray to your requirements – skin tone, lifestyle and other factors will dictate what shade of tan will be best for you. Margaret originates from the UK and is fully trained and accredited in her art, hence total wizardry when it comes to providing an even, natural-looking, streak-free result every time.
Pop into her tent looking pasty white and 15 minutes later step out looking every inch the bronzed goddess (or god – they cater for men too!). [email protected] will create your perfect tan, stress-free and mess-free, either in the comfort of your own home or hotel room, or you can book an appointment at its East Coast Studio. By the way, they also stock a tan-tastic range of tanning products for you to maintain your look for longer.
For the pregnant or post-partum mums, All-Ten-Tic has your back, literally, with its seriously good pre and postnatal massages. From the signature postnatal Jamu massage to All-Ten-Tic pregnancy massages, you are in expert hands and don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home, always a bonus!
