How to book the perfect at-home beauty appointment

Booking in with your colorist or dermatologist may not be the most pressing matter right now, but we do understand it could be weighing on your mind. To help you through the tricky transition to at-home maintenance, DANIELLE FOX rounds up the best virtual appointments for guidance on everything from skin complaints to root touch-ups


Best for: boosting hair health and preventing thinning hair

An appointment with a trichologist may not be high on your to-do list, but the team at Philip Kingsley believes it should be, especially during times of stress and anxiety. If you’re experiencing hair issues and scalp concerns, a remote consultation with the PK team is an excellent starting point. Ahead of each 40-minute consultation, you’re asked to complete an extensive form, which tells the team about your hair and scalp concerns; photos are also required 48 hours before your call. Then, during your digital consultation, an expert trichologist will assess the condition of your hair and scalp, go through your family medical history and discuss your diet and lifestyle. You’ll receive an at-home care plan – including products, which will be shipped to you.

Best for: getting the skin you’ve always wanted

Now is your chance to see one of the best facialists in the world without even leaving your bathroom. Joanna Czech is something of a skin magician and her savvy skincare advice, along with her innovative products, make her a go-to for beauty editors and the red-carpet elite – and now you. During your 30-minute FaceTime appointment with Czech or one of her estheticians, your skin goals are discussed, and the condition of your skin is analyzed on camera. After the appointment, you are given a customized at-home skincare routine and can redeem half the consultation fee as credit to shop for products on Czech’s website.

Best for: curbing any skin flare-ups

You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence at home with acne breakouts, rosacea flare-ups or skin irritations. Dr Dennis Gross’s tele-dermatology service gives you access to one of his stellar staff members from the comfort of your sofa. During your consultation, your medical history is reviewed, skin concerns are discussed and diagnoses are made, along with a course of treatment.

Best for: perfecting your makeup skills

Luminous red-carpet skin, perfect red lipstick and highlighter that gleams just so are all hallmarks of celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman. Now, you can learn exactly how to recreate them yourself with the launch of Westman Atelier’s Clean Beauty Concierge – that is, complimentary Zoom consultations with Westman’s expert team of makeup artists. Use your one-on-one 10-minute video appointment to get personalized recommendations for your skin tone, get educated on the ‘clean swaps’ for your existing makeup staples, and learn how to use Westman’s iconic highlighter stick the right way.

Best for: prolonging your next hair-color appointment

If you’re trying to make peace with your roots or grays, you’ll find salvation in A-list hair colorist Josh Wood and his salon team. Schedule an appointment for a one-to-one video consultation or send a recording of your questions, and one of the color experts will respond with a personalized message. Expect professional guidance, advice and suggestions on how to blend your outgrown hair color to keep you going until your next salon visit.
