Leave it to the tech world to solve the kind of beauty problems you just assumed were there for life: bad haircuts, expensive products, complicated techniques and inaccessible services. Below, 4 just-launched apps that solve those very issues.
Get The Haircut You Want
R+Co Education, the genius new app from cult-favorite haircare brand R+Co, helps eliminate miscommunication between stylists and clients. From contact details and product recommendations to before-and-after shots and inspiration images, the app allows R+Co stylists to have an ongoing dialogue with their clients, ensuring they truly get the haircut they want and know how to style it properly.
Achieve A Luxe Manicure For Less
If you've got Tom Ford taste on a Wet N Wild budget, the SuperDuper app is for you. The SuperDuper team tests popular prestige nail lacquers under various lights to find the best matches at the drugstore level, then directs you to the nearest store that carries the color. How genius is that?
Finally Learn How To Contour
Everyone's seen Kim Kardashian's contouring technique and while it's impressive, it's a process that requires a real commitment. For something a bit softer and more appropriate for your unique features, try Sephora's Pocket Contour. After uploading a bare-faced image, the app uses your skin tone and face shape to recommend products and show you where to apply them. Bonus: There's no need to download anything. Just visit sephora.com/pocketcontour on your phone.
Get Glam For A Big Night Out
Having your hair, makeup and nails done in the comfort of your home before a big night out might feel like a celebrity extravagance but thanks to The Glam App, Los Angeles-based ladies can enjoy these private services for $100 or less. Created by our beloved glam guru Joey Maalouf and ultra-chic actress Cara Santana, the app will soon expand to other US cities.
