Lunch-hour Beauty: Look Fabulous In 60 Minutes

Sunday, October 30, 2016

Whether you’re going on a date or out with the girls, you naturally want to look and feel fabulous. But this can be challenging if you’re short on time. You might have to stay late at the office or miss your train home. This can leave you with next to no time to get yourself ready or put you off going altogether. To avoid this, why not use your lunch hour at work to help you get prepared. While you might not be able to get everything done in sixty minutes, it can give you one less thing to worry about. So consider trying one of these lunch-hour beauty treatments to help you get ready for your big night out.

Eyebrow threading

If it’s been awhile since you’ve tidied up your eyebrows, you might be self-conscious about how they look. This can lower your confidence levels and stop you wanting to attend your special event. However, there really is no need to panic. Many beauty salons now offer eyebrow threading services which can be completed in under fifteen minutes. This gives you plenty of time to get your eyebrows reshaped and grab some lunch afterward too.

Even though you will have fantastic looking brows, you might experience some redness after your treatment. To reduce this before you get to the office, use aloe vera or rose water.

Back massage

Back pain can quickly put a stop to your after-work plans and stop you from looking your best. This is because a sore back can affect your posture and the way you walk. But just because your back is sore, doesn’t mean you can go out. You can get a massage during your lunch hour to relieve any aches and pains you might be experiencing. This will leave you feeling relaxed and eager to dance the night away without any pain. Contact an experienced massage therapist at a nearby spa to see what types of massage they can complete in under an hour. But remember that you might need to shower afterward to remove any oils and lotions used during the process.


Manicures are one of the most popular lunch hour beauty treatments you can have. This is because they can give you beautiful looking nails in little time. Look for nail salons near to your workplace and contact them to make an appointment if possible. As they are so popular, it’s likely that other people will want manicures at the same time too. It can also be beneficial to decide what color nail varnish you want ahead of your appointment. This will save time and allows the technician to get started sooner. To save even more time, you might want to just stick to one single color. Nail art and acrylics, for example, can take longer to create and apply.

To make the most of your sixty minutes, book your required treatments in advance. This should allow you to beat the crowds and ensure you can get started as soon as possible. Always make sure you factor in travel time too to avoid being late.
