Unlocking Your Mindbody: How to Book Beauty Appointments Online Near You

From streetwear to sweatpants, our ideas of beauty have shifted, and people are adapting their styles to fit the state of the world today. We’ve seen many valiant efforts of home beauty—cutting family members’ hair, trimming our own eyebrows, and everything in between. Through it all, we’ve realized just how much we love and miss our stylists. 

You may know Mindbody as a fitness app, but we’re here today to discuss all the ways you can use the app to up-level your beauty wellness routines, too.  

Need a blowout post-sweat sesh? We got you.  

Want to find a tanning salon in your area? Look no further.  

How about a mani-pedi? Got that, too! 

Sugaring? Waxing? Threading? Yep, yes, and definitely.  

Here is how to activate your Mindbody app to book beauty services near you. Let’s go! 

Try something new

If beauty salons and spas are open near you, you might be ready to head back in. In fact, 64% of you feel comfortable returning to hair salons right now. But after all this time at home, you might be feeling like it’s time to add some new services to your roster.  

On the Mindbody app, you can filter the beauty categories to find hair salons, face treatments, nail salons, hair removal, makeup/lash/brow services, med spas, tanning, and even tattoos and piercings. Plus, if you’re a new client, you can browse Intro Offers to get deals on services exclusively for newbies.

Experience the low-touch journey

You may be expecting your salons and spas to feel as normal as possible and as safe as possible at the same time. And if you’re visiting a salon on Mindbody, you can rest assured that you’ll have the most comfortable experience you can. With our new low-touch journey, you can go through the entire booking, check-in, waiver-signing, payment, tipping, product-purchasing, and reviewing processes digitally. This limits the amount of contact you have with people and physical items like pens, paper, and pin pads to keep you as safe as possible when returning to the salon.

Book your favorites 

Have a favorite salon you frequent already? Use the Mindbody app to view schedule and availability for specific services, book and pay for appointments, and leave great reviews when you’re done! Want to share your favorite salon with a friend? You can do that, too. Just click on the salon on Mindbody and tap the little share icon in the top right corner to spread the love. 

If salons near you are open, and you’re ready to start heading back, Mindbody is a great place to start whether you’re looking for something new, trying to stay safe, or wanting to spread some extra love to your favorite salons and stylists. So, what are you waiting for?

black-owned beauty and wellness businesses

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
