Skip the studios with these at-home beauty and fitness options.

While Aspenites may not have access to app-friendly lives like people in Los Angeles or New York City—where beauty services are as easy to schedule with a tap on an iPhone as a snap of a finger—there are an increasing amount of at-home options you can book online or via phone. And after months in isolation, we’re all ready for a beautifying boost. Here are the best options for pampering in private.


The Malibu-born mobile blowout salon DryBy expanded to Aspen this winter with stylists on call from Aspen to Basalt (and beyond with advance notice). Clients can choose from a menu of set styles, with additional services ranging from updos to intricate braids and private parties. From $80



Longtime local Mara Murphy is the one-woman show behind Manicures by Mara, an at-home nail service that offers manicures and pedicures with curated collections of traditional and gel polish. The freelance nail artist started in Chicago in 1987, and for the past two decades has painted countless one-of-a-kind creations for a loyal list of clients. Pricing varies by location


When not providing their expertise on the floor of the beloved beauty emporium Cos Bar, the store’s makeup artists also go on house calls. Their personal cosmetics cases are stocked with the store’s best pro tools, plus they also do lash lifts and longer-lasting extensions. From $200



Tap your favorite O2 Aspen instructor for a private training session in the comfort of your own home or in the beauty of your own backyard. From beginners to experts, this more focused approach is tailored to deepen your practice to its fullest potential. O2’s roster of master masseuses is also available for mobile treatments from its spa menu, including the Athlete (deep tissue); Buddha Body (Swedish); Mama (prenatal); and Adventure Stretch (therapeutic), which may include a $50 upcharge. From $165


One of the best downtown boutiques for Aspen style offers at-home shopping services, including seasonal presentations, image revamps, closet audits and outfit planning. During your initial meeting, your LIV Aspen fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you on how to wear items together. From $120
