It’s 11:30 at night, she finally managed to put her toddler to bed and finally decided to hit the sack. Her husband who was lying on the bed and surfing his phone took a few seconds to study how tired his wife looked, so tired, her face was pale, her eyes (dark circles) if called panda eyes, poor pandas might feel heartbroken.After a few minutes, finally uttered those beautiful words, “Why don’t you get some time for yourself, a spa day or something, I can take care of our li’l one” She could see heaven and hell at the same time, but yes a relaxing spa day sounds great, she thought! But Mr.husbands offer might be valid only for a day maybe, he can change his mind by tomorrow. Oh No! it is already 11:45 and how can she get something for tomorrow. Her face which was lit like lighting millions of 1000w bulbs now began to doom.
Okay, Okay! I know that is the most boring story you might have heard, but my dear Stay-at-home mums can definitely relate to such a situation, I guess. At least in my case, it happens. Most people think (the people who don’t have kids or are not even married) the only thing what a SAHM mom has to do is eat popcorns and watch television when they get bored of sleeping. Well if you are someone who thinks that too then surprise! surprise! these things sometimes don’t even happen in our lives. So a visit to a beauty center/salon might not even be in our thoughts. But when a situation like the aforementioned occurs, it should not be missed, right?. It is then that, websites like Vaniday can act as lifesavers, well almost.
What is Vaniday
Let Vaniday find your perfect match: With an overwhelming choice of salons and spas in the UAE, it can be very time-consuming and difficult to find exactly what you are looking for i.e. which salon to visit, which stylist or therapist will meet your needs and which treatment is the best option for you. But not anymore! The Vaniday site (www.vaniday.ae) not only lists salons and spas available in your chosen area, it also lets you review each salon or spa profile, look at pictures of their work, read detailed descriptions, take a look at customer reviews and ratings to really make an informed decision. With more than 750 salon and spa partners listed including some of the UAE’s best-known and award-winning brands, such as Sensasia, De La Mer Spa, Pastels Salon and Jacques La Coupe, the UAE’s leading professionals are only a click away!
This is what the Vaniday team says about themselves. It is basically a website which lets you choose from hundreds and thousands of beauty centers, salons or clinics, for both men and women, to find the ones which interest you the most and which is located in your area. The best thing about this website is you can book your appointment anywhere anytime. So basically according to my story, she can still make a booking at 11:45 and get an appointment for the next day itself. It just takes a few minutes, no phone calls required, just book through the site or app (yes, they also have an app) and just reach the salon for your preferred manicure/facial/makeup or whatever you choose to get done.
The easy steps of making a booking
Step1: Go to the website
You can get to the website by clicking this link or just google.
Step 2: Pick your preferred service and salon
This is the homepage of the Vaniday website. As you can see different categories like hair, nails, makeup etc are available from which you can easily find your preferred beauty treatment/service. Just choose the one you prefer.
You can also find subcategories which help to choose the right beauty and wellness salon of your choice. You can also see the search bars, where you can easily type your preferred beauty service and location and they will help you find the best one for you. For example, I wanted to do a facial and my preferred location was Abudhabi, so I entered the data and the website showed results based on my search. You can also narrow the search by specifying what type of facial (or any other services) you want.
You can narrow your search even more by using your current city. I chose the Guinot prescription Facial to be doen at a beauty clinic in Abudhabi.
Step 3: Choose date and time
After choosing your preferred service, then you have to choose the date and time when you would like to get it done. The best part is even if you want a booking for the next day and you just remembered at midnight, yu still have hope.
Step4: Sign up if you haven’t already
Once you choose your preferred date and time, if you don’t have an existing account with Vaniday, next thing you have to do is create one. You can either connect with your facebook account or create an account using your email address. Since this was my first time (not last for sure) using Vaniday, I had to signup.
Step 5: Payment, if you are willing to pay online.
Next step is payment. You can either choose to pay online or pay directly to the salon where you are getting your beauty service done.
As you can see from the above picture, there is a space for a voucher code, I received a voucher code from the Vaniday team in return for checking out their website, which I happily pasted on this space.Remember you can choose a promo code only if you choose to pay online.
If you have any special requests, you can also mention it.
And your booking is confirmed.
Step 6: Reach there on time!
Now for this step nobody is going to assist you, you have to get there. But it is completely hassle-free as you have made an appointment and paid the bill.
If you are unsure about the location of the salon, you can find it from the Vaniday website itself. The team at Vaniday make all other arrangements, contact the salon and confirm your booking and also send you reminders. All you have to do is reach the salon on time.
I have booked Guinot prescription facial but later chose to do hydradermie facial. But there were no issues, I just had to pay the extra money.

The steps are the same as using the website when you use the app too.
