Best apps for instant personal pampering

Vagaro, ZocDoc, Zeel

Vagaro helps users book last-minute appointments at more than 7,000 salons across the country. “Need a perm in Bozeman, Mont., or eyelash extensions in Waco, Texas?” This free app has you covered, even though it so far has signed up only a fraction of the salons in most cities. (Android or iOS)

ZocDoc is best known as a free app for booking medical appointments, “but it’s also great for wellness treatments.” Key in the type of specialist you’re seeking—an acupuncturist, for instance—and the app shows you available appointments nearby. (Android or iOS)

Zeel is a free app that can be used to summon a massage therapist to your home or office—provided you live in the right city. The service started in New York and should expand soon to Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. (Android or iOS)
