Lunch-hour Beauty: Look Fabulous In 60 Minutes

lunch-hour beauty

Whether you’re going on a date or out with the girls, it's natural that you want to look and feel your best. However, this can be challenging if you’re short on time. What if you 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 out altogether. To avoid this, why not use your lunch hour at work to help you get prepared? While you might not 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.

Eyebrow threading

If it’s been a while since you’ve tidied up your eyebrows, you might feel self-conscious about how they look. This can lower your self esteem and stop you from 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 afterwards too.

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

Back massage

Back pain can quickly ruin your mood and stop you from looking your best. This is because a sore back can affect your posture and the way you walk. However, just because your back is sore, doesn’t mean you can't 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. However, remember that you might need to shower afterwards 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 a short time. Look for nail salons near your workplace and contact them to make an appointment, if possible. Since lunch hour nail treatments are so popular, it’s likely that other people want their manicure done 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 you some time and allows the technician to get started sooner. To save even more time, it might be a good idea to stick to just one single color. Nail art and acrylics, for example, will take longer to create and apply.

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