Booking beauty treatments—whether lash extensions, massages, manicures, or facials—isn't always the exciting and uplifting celebration of self-love that it should be. Unless you happen to have a go-to spot for all of these treatments, and trusted experts to turn to for each (which, let's be honest, who has that?), it can be an arduous process. In order to avoid spending precious time and money on a subpar experience and/or result, we have to do research. We ask friends and family for their recommendations; we scroll endlessly through Yelp, we compare prices across various websites. Even after all of that, there's no guarantee that the specific expert, clinic, or salon we choose will provide us with the best experience and desired result. That's why testing the brave new world of beauty services is more than a little unnerving.
Now imagine you had your own personal beauty concierge—someone who would take your specific needs and desires, and do all the research for you, eventually booking just the right clean, effective, and relaxing treatment you were after in the first place. That would make things a hell of a lot easier, right?
That's the purpose of a brand new beauty site called Regi. The "personalized beauty platform" helps you "discover and book experiences" from a large group of curated providers. Consider it your new one-stop-shop for all your beauty treatment needs.
Regi provides access to almost every single beauty or medical aesthetic treatment you can think of. These include manicures, facials, massages, lash extensions, injectables, and more. No matter which service you're booking, you can rest assured that it's been vetted by the Regi team for quality, cleanliness, and customer service. They only list the services that have earned top marks, offering customers what the brand calls a "Regi-worthy experience." It's peace of mind that the treatment you're booking is of the highest caliber.
"Consumers are accustomed to having everything at their fingertips, with digital apps and services providing access to just about anything imaginable. However, there wasn’t a place where one could book both a massage and an injectable treatment within one platform,” said Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, senior vice president of consumer strategy and innovation at Allergan in a press release. “We like to think of Regi as filling that space in the market.”
You can search by treatment type or location (which makes it easy to find a quality beauty treatment provider close to home). You can book each treatment directly through the website. There's even a concierge service, which ensures seamless booking for all Regi users. All you have to do is show up to the appointment, and voilà, you're all set.
As of early 2020, Regi is only available in New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas. However, it is set to expand to other major US cities (so you won't have to wait for long). Keep up with this newly-launched service by creating an account on the website or following @regi on Instagram.
