Mountain View resident Brooke Rankins receives an in-home pedicure from Lily Ly. Ly has a contract with Wilo Spa, a new company which offers spa services in customers’ homes. Wilo Spa opened in November and allows customers to arrange appointments by text. About 80 percent of the charge goes to the cosmetologist, plus tip.
According to Wilo Spa founder Manjeera Patnaikuni, it is difficult for a busy person to schedule personal care services. Nail salons maintain regular business hours, so for a working woman – especially one with children – there may not be time between breakfast and dinner to get a manicure or a brow wax.
That is why Patnaikuni founded Wilo Spa in November – to enable individuals to schedule appointments with spa professionals until 9:30 p.m. The biggest draw, according to Patnaikuni, is that the appointment will happen in your home. The Palo Alto resident said her customers reside throughout the Peninsula.
