When the people at BlownAway App contacted me and asked if I’d like a complimentary trial of their on-demand hair and make-up services in exchange for an honest review, I was excited. I love a good blowout! But then I realized that I really shouldn’t pay for a sitter to watch my boys so I could go get some eyelashes and a blow-out. Sigh. And then the Best Thing Ever happened…they told me that the hair and make up people come to me, and that my boys could totally be there and I could still get the beauty treatments I wanted. Say whaaat? I was all in.
I set up an appointment with the cool Uber-like app and then the panic set in and I asked a bunch of questions. Who was coming to my house? (Only background-checked, licensed stylists work with BlownAway App.) Was it OK that my house was messy? (Totally. They expect it.) Did I have to have a dedicated salon-like area? (Nope. Just a table or counter with access to electrical outlets is fine.) And it really was OK if my kids were watching TV in the next room? (Absolutely.) Oh, and how long will it take because I had to be at the bus stop by 2:30 p.m. (No problem. They try to get everything done in under one hour.)

I had a fantastic experience using the services provided by Blownaway App and will definitely use them again. They may not take the place of my regular stylist but when I’m in a hurry, or my stylist is booked, or one of the kids is sick, or I just don’t want to fight traffic, I’m going to get on the Blownaway App and call in a professional. It’s not just celebrities who get to have hair and make-up people come to their homes…it’s regular moms too!
