Imagine an affordable GLAMSQUAD shows up at your door via a one-touch app, much like uber, but instead of ordering a car, you’re ordering gorgeous hair and face! We jumped for joy when we discovered GLAMSQUAD, a beauty provider delivering pro and affordable beauty services to the home, office or hotel. Just like uber changed our life, being busy urban Moms, business women, and hustlers – GLAMSQUAD has changed the ease in which we get out of house for important events. Take our word for it – because we’ve tried this service a few times, and it’s absolutely incredible. All the GLAMSQUAD hair stylists and make-up artists we’ve tried have been insanely talented and over the top sweet and helpful. The quality of stylist for the prices (prices begin at $50 for hair and $75 for makeup applications) is unprecedented and the convenience is unparalleled. We requested cruelty-free products, and had no problem getting them, but you can also request the stylist use your own products. We rarely rave about a beauty service like we have this one, but it just absolutely lives up to it’s hype in every possible way. We love them so much, GGA founder Chloé Jo Davis even used them when filming her About.com series (you can view all the looks and episodes using the GirlieGirlArmy search engine.) Alexandra Wilkis Wilson is the co-founder and CEO of GLAMSQUAD, and she also co-founded Gilt – so she’s clearly an innovator and genius. And you know how we feel about women-owned businesses!

The stylists are hand-picked and expertly trained undergoing extensive proprietary training and character-assessment techniques by Creative Director Giovanni Vaccaro and Kelli Bartlett, Director of Makeup Artistry, who both oversee GLAMSQUAD’s training program. They guarantee consistent, high quality results and a positive stylist experience with every appointment. With personalized, one-on-one consultations and a signature range of inspirational looks, you get the full celebrity-experience, without having to shlep out to a blow dry bar or beauty counter. The app is available for free download and prices begin at $50 for hair and $75 for makeup applications – which, considering they come to you, is extremely good pricing. Blow dry bars charge $40 plus tip, so it ends up being nearly the same for not even close to the same experience. Appointments commence at 6AM and are available as late as 9PM with the ability to book one month in advance. So, let’s just say you have a big event, meeting, interview, date, birthday party, whatever.. and it’s 20 degrees outside – imagine the bliss of opening your front door and plopping in a chair to have a super cool and sweet stylist make you gorgeous while you chill.
They currently operate in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, the company plans to debut in other cities soon – so download that app!
