Hope you’re making the most of this weekend. My weekend has been super productive 🙂 I’ve posted a few blogs and scheduled a few things for days to come! Also, I can’t wait to tell you all what the surprise element for our blog is. We’ve been working on it for quite sometime and now that it’s taking shape, we can’t wait to share it with you! 😀 Amidst all this, I also booked a spa appointment for some much-needed rejuvenation. A corporate job during the day and a blogger by night does take a toll sometimes! 🙁
So today’s review is about the easy-peasy spa appointment experience I had. I am one of those who can’t stand the thought of waiting in long queues at the salon. The only time I get to visit a salon is weekends and having to wait in a looooong queue for my turn gets frustrating. Especially when we have some leisure only on weekends and whiling away that time waiting at a salon is NOT what I want to do! 😛 But guess what? Technology solves everything these days 😀
We are living in a generation where there are apps developed for every need of ours. Be it shopping, fitness, selfies that bridge the gap between loved ones far away, scanning and what not! There is an app for almost everything under the sun 😀 And here is another app that I discovered recently that books spa appointments in a minute- HYVE! What? Can’t believe it? Read on to find out more…
HYVE is an app that provides you with beauty and spa appointments and also gives exclusive discounts with reputed chains across Bangalore. So what exactly HYVE does is, it books a spa appointment for you when and where you need it according to your preference. Not only that, they also offer beauty services at home. Talk about ways of spoiling us completely (Obviously in a good way 😛 )
My experience about using HYVE
All I did was first download the app. After download, there was no signing up and confirmation mail chaos, one has to just sign in with their Facebook account.
They also have a service called “Beauticians At Home” where you could have all these services at the comfort of your home. Forget those times when you couldn’t go to the salon because it’s raining outside 😉 So when you click on this option, it would show a list of beauticians nearby your location who can come home to assist you with the services asked for. Also, details about the experience each beautician has makes it easier to narrow it down and select.
I wanted to get a hair cut so these are the options for salons that showed up which were near my location. What makes the app unique is that for every salon it shows, there are ratings that you can compare and decide easily.
And if you are someone who is clueless about what are the hairstyles or mehendi designs you want to try, don’t you fret! There is an option called “Discover Your Next Look” that gives various options that you could be inspired from! 🙂
Some of the features you get to see on HYVE about any salon you would want to book your appointment with is the exact address, the services that particular salon provides and the payment facilities available. If all this wasn’t enough, it also shows if parking is available and if the place is air-conditioned. Wow! 😀 Also, I found the application is very easy to navigate and I don’t find myself waiting for it to load forever! A definite plus! 🙂
Booking is quite simple. You just click on the “Book My Appointment” option for the salon you need and it would guide you to the next page showing a list of slots available for booking. You can select the slot that is convenient and book! And voila! In mere 15 seconds, you would receive a call on the number that you would have mentioned, verifying your appointment. SMS messages are also sent simultaneously to keep you updated about whether the appointment is confirmed.
All this in less than a minute 🙂 How cool is that? ♥ After this, all I did was walk into the salon and avail the services I booked for. Also, once you are done with your salon appointment, you can share your look on the application through “Share a Look” option. 😉
On the whole, I have loved using HYVE and I’m sure I’ll be using it in the long run to book all my future salon appointments 🙂 You can also download it yourself and try! Let me know how your experience was with the same!
On our TJD score card,
