Never leave the house again with these top in-home beauty services delivered straight to your door!
As much as we love a good goss session at the salon or a total bliss-out at the spa, the reality of kids (or feeling too large to leave the house) can make the logistics for pampering all-too-difficult. Lucky for you, we’ve tapped our most trusted (and in-the-know) style sources to find out the best at-home beauty services available in Singapore. Tame your tresses with stylists who contribute to Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. Prep for a weekend away with a 15-minute spray tan or full Brazilian wax. It’s all here, mamas (or there, or wherever you need it to be!).
NB: Depending what stage you’re at in your pregnancy, certain beauty treatments may not be suitable. Be sure to discuss with your therapist beforehand!
