Waterford native, Elaine Doheny, has launched an app that allows you to be literally pampered in your own home.
Elaine, from Portlaw, has been based in Australia for the last seven years and the app, uGlow, was developed in Melbourne during the strict lockdown in May 2020 and brought to life during Elaine’s maternity leave in 2021.
The uGlow app is a booking platform for health, beauty and wellbeing services wherever, and whenever you want to avail of them. If it’s a facial, a blow dry, personal training, a massage, personal styling or a spray tan you’re after, you can book it through uGlow.
In the first phase of the launch, uGlow are looking for professionals (GloPro’s) to sign up to the app. The services will be available from April.
as the platform grows, you can work from anywhere in the world
The idea came about after Elaine had heard many friends and family wishing how they’d love a service that allowed them to be pampered in their own homes. Elaine is planning on returning home to Ireland soon, where she will settle with her husband and baby son to focus on the development of uGlow.
“Right now, uGlow’s focus is to get professionals in the areas of wellness beauty and lifestyle signed up — the hair stylists, beauticians, nail technicians, massage therapists, personal trainers, yoga and pilates instructors, stylists, you name it. The benefits for professionals signing up to uGlow include having more control over your time and increasing your revenue potential. uGlow works very much off your location so as the platform grows, you can work from anywhere in the world.
