These days, there’s an app for just about everything. Countless mobile apps can do anything today, from organizing recipes to monitoring sleep patterns. In fact, there are even apps dedicated to beauty and grooming! Here are four free beauty and grooming mobile apps that you’ll absolutely love.
#1: The Glam App
Say your hair stylist just flaked and you need to attend a wedding in two days. “The Glam App” is here to save the day. This nifty app prides itself on its ability to provide “beauty on demand” right to your door (that is, if you live in one of a dozen major US cities or London). Set up an appointment via The Glam App’s sleek interface for hair care professionals, makeup artists, and manicurists with varying degrees of pricing and expertise. Or, if you’re looking to freelance, The Glam App works as a virtual agency where you can set your own hours and build your clientele, all from your phone!
The Glam App is available via iTunes and Google Play.
#2: Hair Journal
True to its name, “Hair Journal” is an app that allows its users to journal their way through their hair-raising adventures. You can track your hair growth via photos and diary entries, enjoy its built-in Facebook community features, and review your favorite (or least favorite) hair products. There’s even a way to enter in multiple hair profiles, making it easier for hair care professionals who want to keep track of their clientele’s unique preferences.
Hair Journal is available via iTunes and Google Play.
