We’ve been using smart phone apps to book cabs for the longest time, we don’t even remember when the last time we spoke to a telephone operator was. We also make 50 per cent of our dining bookings with apps too because it’s just so much more convenient.
Now it’s time to take the hassle out of salon bookings too with the Vaniday app or website.
Co-founder and managing director of Vaniday Singapore, Robinson Blanckaert, says Singapore reports the highest active spa-going population across the globe at around 70 percent. And there are over a whopping 18,000 salons spread across our island!
So it’s only natural that Singapore is the first country in Asia to launch Vaniday. The app was first released in Brazil in March 2015 and has since expanded to Italy, the UAE, Australia and Russia. It is also backed by one of the leading internet platforms Rocket Internet, which has built other companies in South East Asia such as Lazada and Zalora.
We’ve tried Vaniday and have to say its interface is easy to navigate. There are over 800 salons to choose from – such as Kim Robinson, Lush Spa and Action Hair Salon – with categories such as hair, nails, makeup, aesthetics, hair removal, massage, barber and spa.
You’ll get to compare prices, browse through reviews and search for salons near you. After you’ve narrowed down the service you desire, you get to enjoy the best part – a fully integrated booking system where you get to view all the date and time-slots available. Gone are the days where you’ll have to hold on the phone to know if your choice of slot is available because you’ll be able to see it all.
It’s totally fuss-free and ideal for times when you decide at 3am that you would like to get your hair dyed or eyebrows shaped the next day.
There are also promotions that run from time to time, so you can stay updated on any sweet deals. Everything is at the tap of a finger. What are you waiting for? Go on, treat yourself.
And as we promised, here’s the exclusive discount code, which gives you $15 off any treatment for first time customers until 15 May 2016: ELLESG. The voucher code is valid with a minimum spend of $30 and for online payment only (97 percent of salons offer online payment). Go forth and get pampered!
