There’s a few reasons Why I’m In Love With Vaniday, so here they are.
Let’s be real for a second. Finding a salon and making an appointment isn’t the easiest of experiences. Please tell me that I’m not the only one who gets a bit anxious trying to call a place up? Please also tell me that I’m not alone when I say I’ve been quoted one price and the real service has also ended up costing me my soul. On the day of my 21st birthday party, I made a really really silly decision to get my hair ‘ombred’. Long story shot, shocking job. Ever since, I’ve wanted to get my hair fixed but like I said, salon appointments aren’t my cup of tea!
If you’re not sure what Vaniday is, it’s pretty much an online booking service that you can use to book into salons. This includes everything from makeup, hair appointments, massages, facials etc.
There are a few websites or applications like Vaniday but I think that they do a couple things differently, which really sets them apart.
Through the app which is available on iOS and Google PlayStore, you can turn on GPS, and it only brings up salons near you. So, you also don’t have to trek halfway around the world to get to your appointment.
#2 PRICES ARE DISPLAYED ON SITE
After you select the salon you’re interested in, you can scroll through their services, down to the last dollar. This is something that is super rare, and definitely needed. One of my largest deterrents for booking services is getting quoted an incorrect price which becomes really awkward when I’m at the till trying to pay.
#3 PREPAY YOUR BOOKING
On Vaniday, you can prepay! This to me is exactly what I need because once I get to a salon I don’t want to think about the money that this experience is going to cost me. I want to have fun and be pampered. Who doesn’t right!?
This way, I don’t have to worry about all the little ad ons that they’ll try and sell me. I’ll just be strong, say no and hopefully walk out without extras.
Now to the happiest part of this blogpost, my personal experience!
Through Vaniday, I was booked into the Melbourne Franck Provost Paris Hair Salon last Wednesday. The salon itself is located in the ever so handy location of the Melbourne Emporium.
I had the lovely Marie working on my hair. I originally walked in wanting an ombre or balayge but I changed my mind and decided to go for a more natural route. My natural colour is up the top of my roots and I thought I’d try move closer towards it, but still have my ends slightly lighter.
Marie worked two colours together and ran it through all the pieces on my head that were previously bleached. I also received a really nice Kerastase hair treatment which felt super light weight, but did absolute magic.
I am super, super stoked with my hair. Thanks to Vaniday for this awesome opportunity! And yay there’s something in it for you!
If you use the code VANILOVESKATINA you’ll receive $20 off any treatment you book through Vaniday. This includes massage, hair salons, nails, facials, everything on the Vaniday site! No no, it isn’t a sneaky commission code. I get nothing out of it whatsoever, but you do, yay!
