The best at-home beauty treatments and services

WORDS BY DAISY HENRY

Get pampered in your pjs.

Though the idea of a massage after hunching over an office desk all week, or a teeth whitening treatment to hide any coffee or wine-related sins sounds incredibly appealing, it can be difficult to find a time to book in and go to a salon.

However, for those of us that work full time, have caregiver responsibilities or who simply don’t want to venture out into the cold weather, there are a number of ways you can have a salon or spa experience from the comfort of your lounge room.


We like nosy people. Don’t be shy, head to our Beauty section for more. 


Whether it be an at-home visit from a technician or beauty therapist, or a carefully curated DIY kit, these beauty brands and services allow you to indulge in some TLC without having to change out of your tracksuit pants.

Rather than going to the dentist, which can be an expensive and anxiety-inducing experience, Sparkling White Smile’s mobile teeth whitening service comes to clients’ homes or offices, with individual and group booking options on offer. Having grown from a one-person business eight years ago, Sparkling White Smile now has over 600,000 clients on its database and offers services across four countries.

“We just recently launched a new machine called the AYLBA machine. So it’s more comfortable for the client [and] it’s [a] shorter time… Before it was about two hours, now it’s only about an hour 10,” explains founder Alison Egan.

You can also sit up while having the treatment and watch TV, or go on your laptop – so technically, your boss doesn’t need to know that while you’re working from home, your teeth are getting a literal glow up.

Developed by Australia’s leading brow stylist, Melanie Marris, Brow Code’s at-home kits are an easy DIY way to get salon-worthy, laminated brows. Also known as an ‘eyebrow perm’, eyebrow lamination is a treatment whereby a chemical solution (made for eyebrows) is used to shape and straighten eyebrows hairs, creating a thick, feathered look.

You can shop the Lustre Lamination Kit at Mecca, and enjoy laminated brows for six to eight weeks. Find a detailed tutorial of the process here.
