Beauty has always been about instant gratification. Getting a team of beauty professionals to show up at the door-steps of your home is no longer a privilege reserved just for celebrities and the wealthy.
Go-Glam, our first beauty on-demand app in Indonesia, gathers hair stylists, beauticians and manicurists to your home or office, made possible thanks to Gojek, our country’s leading transportation startup.
We gave it a try and tested out the full Go-Glam experience with Jessica, a new mommy holding down a full-time job. Convenience is her ultimate top priority. Let’s Go Go Go Glam her up!
Kudos for punctuality, as the Go-Glam team arrived before Jessica even returned home! Sri was in charge of the manicure and pedicure, while Tantri handled the cream bath and blow dry.
Sri only needed warm water to prepare for the pedi-mani experience since the team already brought their own supplies – towels, basin and stool. Jessica’s pedicure started with soaking her feet in warm water mixed with delicious bath salts, followed by scrubbing, nail filing and cuticle removal, all before proceeding with foot massage and nail polish application.
While getting pampered in the comforts of her own home, the friendly manicurist presented every shade of OPI collection for her to choose from. Jessica felt like a queen!
We also learnt from the beauticians that they had prior work experience at home salons and A-list salons all around Jabetabek (usually averaging 2 years of experience).
As for cream bath, Go-Glam has two brands for selection; Makarizo and L’oreal Matrix Sensoria. We decided to trying Makarizo Black Chocolate flavor as it is the most highly requested one.
Our therapist, Tantri, slathered a generous amount of Makarizo cream on Jessica’s damp hair, and massaged the cream in for 30 minutes until the hair is well conditioned. She then proceeded with a warmly soaked head wrap, followed by a shoulder and back massage for another 30 minutes. Once the relaxing massage was completed, the hair was rinsed with a blow-dry to end the session.
When done simultaneously, both treatments lasted for about 2 hours.
“I love the salon experience,” Jessica says, “but since I am a new mommy with a 5-months old baby, I’m always stretched for time. Having someone come directly to me makes the spa-like experience possible and more convenient. It’s the best of both worlds. I get to relax while looking after my baby at the same time. A beauty professional is now so easy to order!“
