GLAMSQUAD and Uber Team Up to Offer $40 On-Demand Hair and Beauty Services for New York Fashion Week

Nowadays it seems that Uber is literally everywhere and doing everything. This past weekend, the company partnered with Casper to deliver mattresses during one of the busiest moving seasons of the year. Now, Uber has partnered with New York’s GLAMSQUAD to bring on-demand combined hair and make-up services right to your home, office, or gym for just $40.

This special offering is only available today, September 4th and Friday, September 5th between 3PM and 8PM, and – according to GLAMSQUAD – will only be available on a first-come, first-served basis. It’s a pretty good deal considering that 1) you don’t have to schedule a salon appointment, 2) this combined hair and beauty package usually costs $125, so #savings, and 3) you get a complimentary gift bag which includes things like StriVectin skincare products and Clarin’s lipgloss and blushers. In order to redeem this two-day special, simply download the Uber here or enter the promotional code UBERGLAM in your current Uber app. Once that’s done, all you’ll need to do is request the “GLAM” option in the app, and a GLAMSQUAD x Uber fleet car will head to your location to give you a one-hour makeover.

“[Uber’s] approach, consumer base and marketing resonates with the GLAMSQUAD client in much the same way our service does,” said GLAMSQUAD CEO, Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, in a statement. “We couldn’t envision a more perfect partner to do something exciting for those who want to experience the glamour of New York Fashion Week.”

According to the company, this partnership with Uber is an effort to celebrate New York Fashion Week and will even feature other various promotions by GLAMSQUAD, including the chance to win a year of weekly blowouts. Wilson is certainly no stranger to New York’s fashion scene; the Gilt Groupe cofounder very recently left the company to lead the charge at GLAMSQUAD. Having just taken over as CEO on September 1st, the company certainly already seems to be heading in a good direction.
