Need a last-minute trim but your favorite stylist is booked? Craving a massage for sore, stressed-out muscles but don’t feel comfortable in a crowded spa? Both services are just a click away, thanks to a new crop of Atlanta-based mobile-beauty companies offering everything from blowouts and body scrubs to manicures, hair extensions, and makeup applications—all in the safety and comfort of your own home. (Prices are generally comparable to salon fees.)
French-born entrepreneur Pierre Dubois moved to Atlanta in 2017, and soon, he saw a potential market for mobile hair services, which are more widespread in western Europe than they are here. Launched last July, DashStylists now boasts 35 hair stylists and barbers. Services include women’s, men’s, and children’s haircuts, as well as braiding, extensions, blowouts, up-dos, and special-event styling.
Even prepandemic, freelance makeup artist Alyshah Vishram Lalani would travel to clients’ homes and offices to provide assistance for weddings, photo shoots, and other special events. Also a former spa manager, she founded Spa Theory in early 2020, built a network of more than 200 beauty professionals, and expanded her mobile offerings to include massages, nail services, henna, hair styling, blowouts, and spa parties, 365 days a year.
From massages and body scrubs to waxing, hair styling, and nail services, Rendezvous has been curating in-home spa retreats since 2019. Choose from more than 60 vegan, nontoxic nail shades for your manicure or pedicure or opt for a massage with an organic, hydrating, and invigorating grapefruit and walnut shell body scrub.
