Get Ready With Pretty Quick

I first want to thank you all for all the birthday love!! I can't even begin to describe how amazing it is to have so many wonderful friends in bloggy land!! Thank you again for taking time out of your day to wish me a happy birthday!!
Before I get into today's post: You'll notice the "Boston Favorites" tab has been added to the menu bar so feel free to poke around and let me know if you have any questions!! 

**********************
This past weekend I headed to Bella Sante, one of my favorite salon's in Boston to get a much needed manicure. I booked my appointment through PrettyQuick, a.k.a my new best friend! 
Test Text 2
PrettyQuick is a beauty app, kind of like Uber for beauty! It's a free service that allows you to book any type of beauty appointment and instead of paying at the salon or spa you pay with the card on file. Gratuity can also be included if the salon accepts them via card! 
Pretty Quick
The concept behind PrettyQuick is exactly as the name suggests, not having to wait to book an appointment when you want it! If you're in dire need of a blowout before a date night or just need to get a quick manicure at lunch, you launch the app and find a salon that's near you and already vetted as being one of the best in the area. 
Pretty Quick
I used the actual website ahead of time to book my appointment, but after downloading the app I realized how much more convenient it was to have beauty literally at my fingertips! Just like with Open Table you can earn points towards free manicures, which let's be honest I'm super excited about!! Another selling point for me is that they have salons in all price ranges, so you can go to the same salons you would normally go to and just book through the app to get points! 

PrettyQuick is currently available for salons and spas in Chicago, Boston, D.C., Miami, Dallas & San Francisco with salons and cities being added all the time! 

If you are in one of the cities where PrettyQuick is offered you can click here for a $15 credit towards your first appointment!! 

If salons in your area were involved with a beauty app like Prettyquick, would you use it? Are you a drop in for appointments kind of person or do you like to plan it out?

I'm also over at Shift Your Style's blog today sharing my thoughts on the color of the year, Marsala! It's been a few months and I want to know what you really think about it!!

In exchange for my honest review of the PrettyQuick App, I was given credit towards a service. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

  2. What a fabulous concept, lady!

  9. Thank you for reminding me to work on my own city guide! I keep forgetting about it. Pretty Quick sounds like such a good idea!

  10. What a cool app. I will check it out but it looks like it is currently only in Boston and not in surrounding towns. :(

  12. Wooohoo! This sounds awesome! I'm so glad that they have it in DC--I'll have to check this out the next time I'm in a bind to be beautiful haha

  13. That app sounds pretty awesome. Definitely something I would give a try! I'm going to remember to come back to your Boston Favorites next time we're planning a little road trip. We were in Boston for a couple days last spring, but it wasn't nearly long enough, so we're hoping to make another trip sometime this year!

  14. I remember seeing something about this app in a magazine a while back - it's a great concept! I highly doubt it will ever make it's way up to northern Wisconsin (lol), but if it does, I'll totally be a user!

    ReplyDelete
  15. well this sounds brilliant, and of course, as usual - louisville is not on the list!! it never is, stupid small city. haha jk. i would definitely use something like this though because when you move it is SO hard to find a good nail, hair, etc place unless you have recommendations and such, and even then, only one of my friends gets her nails done so she only recommends one place.. and it's not like NYC or Boston where there are a ton of places online or whatever, I mean, this is Louisville so your best bet is to drive around and check something out when you see it, so I just don't lol. Anyway. Off to check out your boston favourites tab!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. That app sounds awesome! I never have regularly scheduled appointments, so this would be super helpful to schedule something when I actually need it!

  17. what a cool app!! and I've been getting emails for open table as well, but I had no clue what it was. thanks for educating me on the latest in tech, im always so far behind!

  18. This is genius!!! I have the WORST time trying to find a place to get nails done in Boston. Oh yes, that's how we ended up at the sketchiest place in Somerville where we couldn't even get a cab back.... LOL. TOTALLY downloading this now.

  19. What a cool app! I miss being in a city where stuff like that works :-p San Antonio has nothing compared to Dallas. Maybe it'll come here someday! Thanks for sharing, Biana!

  31. Sounds like a cool app idea! Hope they come to Charleston!

  32. What a handy app! This has got to be so convenient for salons in a city! I don't think it would go over so well in a small town... but I'm loving this idea to help me find a place I love in Arizona!

    ReplyDelete
  33. This sounds super convenient - I just signed up!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is such a cool idea! I could have definitely used this the other day for my haircut! Alas it's not in Jax yet but when it is I will most definitely use it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. What?! This is so genius! I love anything that eliminates a phone call and makes things quick and easy! I'll definitely have to download this!!

  36. Love it! Though, it'll be a long time before it hits any town I live in! It'd be great when visiting a city, though! Also YAY for the Boston page. My brother actually got married at Fenway Park and we got to do a tour after. Unfortunately I was already hung over by that point. I believe there is a great picture floating around of me (looking absolutely miserable) and my dad talking on the Green Monster... OH memories!

  37. That's a fantastic idea. Perfect for trips or vacations & you want to make it a even special time... I love smart apps like this.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a cool app- it's nice to be able to search one place for multiple appointments-- and a point system is always a plus!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a nice app, wish that we could also have something similar here))

  43. Glad you had a fabulous birthday!! Never heard of it but sounds great. I used yelp and review sites for restaurants a lot and this is the same type of concept..Good to know!

  53. What a nice treat for yourself on your birthday. (Happy Belated Birthday b.t.w.) What color of mani did you go with? I am loving the spring purples right now. I will most certainly check out this new ap. I love the convenience!

  54. Interesting concept. I'm not sure if I'd use it much since I'm very partial to my stylist (it's one of my best friends) but for those wanting to try new things I think it's great. So glad you got to treat yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is such an amazing app! I hope they come to London b/c I need all the help I can get when it comes to picking salons! Loved your pretty outfit you posted in insta, hope it was a good night :)

  56. That app does sounds pretty interesting! Would you believe it has been like 6 years since I have had a pedicure? I really would like to start treating myself maybe once or twice a year with those again.

    ReplyDelete
  57. First off, I missed your birthday post, so happy be-lated birthday! xo

    Secondly, I love the sound of that app! I'm infamous for lunch break manis. They usually make me come back a few minutes late because I never book an appointment or know which one is the closet. I'll definitely be utilizing this app. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a great idea! And points towards free manis?! Yes, please!

  59. An awesome app that I would definitely use! Xo, Stephanie

  61. Happy Belated Birthday Beautiful!! This is why I love blogging...I had no idea this existed and while I wouldn't say I'm a drop in most of the time I have done it a time or two. I have gone to the same place ever since moving to Florida, but with moving I won't be able to go there all the time anymore so this is awesome to help me find a new place. Although, my mom goes to one that's pretty awesome. Can't wait for Tampa and surrounding to get it!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Pretty cool app!! Great concept.
    I love the Boston faves tab. I think its great to shout out your city and show people around!

  63. I am loving all these new beauty apps that help make appointments. I am big believer in convince is half the battle in maintaining a lasting beauty routine! xo, Amanda
