If you’re in desperate need of some pampering and need booking flexibility, checkout Groupon BeautyNow, a new service from Groupon that lets you book same-day beauty appointments right from the Groupon app!
This post was sponsored by Groupon, however, all opinions and especially my extreme level of excitement are purely my own.
I was terrible about getting my hair cut before I had kids, but now that I have two of them? Well, let’s put it this way: The last time I had a haircut, we were still living in Chicago and I only had one child, which means it was more than seven months ago. In that time, my hair has gotten ridiculously long and unruly and I’ve taken to wearing it in a braid most of the time just to keep it out of the way.
Because my hair was so much longer than I ever intended, I decided to do something drastic and cut off enough hair so that I could donate it. As much as I love long hair, I wasn’t sure my hair would ever be that long again, so I decided to do something drastic.
With a cut style in mind, I logged into the Groupon app and went to the “Salon & Spa Booking” section. BeautyNow is a new service from Groupon where you can reserve same-day beauty appointments. Through Groupon BeautyNow you can book salon appointments, manicures and pedicures, and you can even book massages! Many of the top nail and beauty salons and spas in Chicago are available, including a few of my favorites like the spa and fitness center at the Four Seasons Hotel, DreamDry (an awesome place to get a blowout), and the spa at the Wit Hotel.
As much as I wanted to make a trip back to Chicago for a couple of hours of pampering, I decided to check out some of the local places in the Chicago suburbs that had partnered with Groupon BeautyNow. I was in desperate need of a new stylist – someone who actually knows how to work with curly hair – and decided to book an appointment at a salon near me called Urban Style Salon & Spa, mainly because I was missing Chicago and liked that the word “urban” was part of the name.
Booking the appointment was a cinch. If you’re based in Chicago, download the Groupon app and select “Salon & Spa Booking” at the top to start booking!
Once you’ve pulled up the app, tell them where you’re located and what you’re looking for, and you’ll get a list of salon options. You can book same-day or future appointments.
