With the hectic holiday season upon us, parties, dinners and ho-ho-ho happenings are officially in full swing. That means trying to find time in your busy schedule to look not just presentable, but downright festive (instead of like a zombie with Hamburger Helper in your hair). Enter StyleBee, a brilliant new app now serving Los Angeles that delivers on-demand beauty services directly to you at home. Christmas came early this year!

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have time to make it to the salon.  Who does?  StyleBee has a very user friendly interface (because you also don’t have time to figure out how to use one more thing) that will let you book the service you need: anytime, anyplace. They work with many of the city’s top beauty stylists who will come directly to you when you have time and wherever you can meet them—whether it’s your house, office or hotel. Simply download the StyleBee app, then choose from a wide variety of beauty services, including blowouts, updos, men’s haircuts, make-up application, massages and even face painting (available for kiddos as well). Services are offered daily from 7:30 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. with as little as two hours advance notice.

Another thing we like it the flexible 4-hour cancellation policy on all appointments; a must when you have little kids and things can pop up last minute. Like a winter cold or just a case of the crankies that causes you to cancel your going-out plans.

So who exactly will be coming to your house?  Fear not, Stylebee screens and selects every professional on the service, so you don’t have to.  All pros are licensed and most have extensive experience working at the hottest salons in LA, as well as doing editorial, fashion and film work. They are carefully selected for you based on the profile you set up, the stylist’s proximity to your location and availability. Because they will be in your home, pros are thoroughly vetted with background checks, interviews and references.

Cost: The StyleBee app is free to download and beauty services start at $50. A 20% gratuity is automatically charged to your credit card upon booking your appointment. No fumbling for cash or awkward tipping necessary.

Discount: StyleBee is offering our readers a $25 discount on blowout services when you enter the promo code TRICYCLE. Happy holidays, hot mama!
