My mom has memory issues and I was not sure how the appointment would go. It was wonderful. Samaria arrived as expected. Very pleasant and put my mom at ease immediately. The perm and cut turned out fantastic. Mom never felt rushed. Ashley and Samaria were able to accommodate my date and time request very quickly. After it was finished my mom asked when she could see her again!!! Very thankful that I found this service and they made it so easy for my mom.

My wife has Alzheimer’s Dementia, is homebound, and is often uncooperative, and reluctant to accept new people. (Especially those who … come in contact with her …). Samaria came to our home and shampooed, conditioned, de-tangled, and cut and styled her hair, so we (myself, and our in-home caregiver) could better take care of her. She not only won over my wife’s confidence and co-operation, but took the time to instruct us (myself, and our in-home caregiver) in how best to manage my wife’s continuing hair care, and what implements (brushes, combs, hair care products) to use. Samaria is a knowledgeable, consummate professional, very experienced and caring person. We are very happy to have met her. We can recommend her services unconditionally.

Just received a hot stone massage. It was everything I needed! Professional, knowledgeable, and attentive to my personal needs. I will definitely use their services again and encourage friends to do the same!

My experience with In the Nick of Time was absolutely incredible. Foremost, the owner and her staff were extremely personable and hands on with my scheduling. Ashley was sweet and kind and walked me through the entire process. I’m a new mom, home on maternity leave and found the company by a Google search. I followed the brief online questionnaire and got a call for Ashley the same day. I explained to her what I needed and her and her team made it happen. Houda came out to my home. She was extremely professional and talented. I will admit she had her hands full with my hands and feet, but she got the job done and done perfectly. I felt great after my manicure and pedicure. I am really grateful for the excellent job they did. Thanks again.

I scheduled my wedding make up trial a few weeks advance and was given multiple options for dates and times. The make up artist arrived at my home right on time and brought her own make up chair. (A very nice pampering touch I wasn’t expecting). She was very friendly asked me a few questions and got to work “transforming” my face. She even told me about some alternative products I could use on my skin. The whole trial took about an hour and she did an amazing job. Thanks!

In the Nick of Time Spa [was] amazing! They came to visit me while I was an inpatient at the hospital, and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer experience. Ashley was compassionate and friendly, and quick to get my appointment made in a timely fashion. I had a wonderful and relaxing gel manicure and pedicure – it was exactly what I needed! I would recommend this company over and over again! They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and feeling pampered! I felt like they brought the spa to me – it was an amazing experience.

I am soooo glad that Ashley was smart enough to start this company. This service is so necessary for people dealing with chronic health issues, long hospital stays, depression, agoraphobia…the list goes on.

For us, my mom is dealing with a diagnosis that means limited mobility and chronic pain. Natalee was able to come to our home (the day before Mother’s Day!) to give my mom a much-needed manicure and pedicure, exactly to my mom’s specifications, and my mom basically fell asleep while it happened! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Natalee was so kind and easy to talk to. This experience definitely beats having to schlep into a salon where they might not be as sensitive to each client’s needs.

Thank you, Ashley and Natalee for your kindness, flexibility and skills! We will be repeat customers.

I just had to write a review! I have been using in the nick of time for over a year now. Sometimes I get my hair done, sometimes my nails. I am able to choose my stylist from their website. Depending on time and availability I pick different ones. I am so pleased in how they treat me when the stylists come to my home. I am not a big review person but I really should have done this a long time ago. Ashley is the owner and shows compassion to me with my homebound situation. She has this company to help people who are homebound and I am so glad! I want to especially thank the stylist Houda who does an excellent job whenever she provides me services. I am so glad I found this company. Keep up the good work- see you next week!

Just used In the Nick of Time for a girls’ night in for me and three friends. We each got a 35 minute massage and mani pedis. The team called to say they were running a little late (15 mins) and set up quickly. There was a lot to set up! They brought a massage table that had a heated mattress pad and a table that was outfitted w everything you would want in a nail station. Claudia was our masseuse and she did a great job applying just the right amount of pressure. The manis and pedis were pretty and precise. This was honestly one of the best girls’ nights that we’ve had. There was plenty of time to catch up and talk while everyone was getting their treatments. Would use them again in a heartbeat.

My 86-year old mom had a great cut, color, and blowdry experience from {technician} yesterday. She was so excited to get her hair done and is very pleased with the service.

I contracted with IN THE NICK OF TIME for my mother, over age 70 with think nails. She is a special case. Cosmetologist {name} gave excellent service. She was prepared, professional, and had a very calming demeanor which helped my mother enjoy the pedicure. The session was relaxing for Mother and made her feet look and feel great. If you are looking for a positive in-home spa experience, give this vendor a try.

I can’t say enough about this company and the stylist that came to us…. She is a sweetheart and I have found my permanent stylist!! She was gentle ,kind, great conversation and so professional. My hair is so unbelievably light and it turned out phenomenal. Do yourself a favor call this company and let them give you a great experience you won’t regret it. from customer service, scheduling, to execution was on point!

Suza Morris Facebook Review

I absolutely love having the convenience of salon and spa services come to my home. The professionalism of the stylists coupled with the expediency of booking and receiving services is phenomenal. I am able to work it in my schedule before an event and truly enjoy having this done in the luxury of my home.

Ashley and Samaria provided a great experience for us. Ashley by helping us with the booking and payment, Samaria by giving all of our family with a haircut. My husband says it’s the best one he has ever received.

I am so happy to have found In the Nick of Time! The process from choosing a stylist to confirmation and even payment was so smooth and easy. I had my first appt. with Ana today and she was PHENOMENAL!
I have been very cautious and apprehensive during this pandemic and am not comfortable enough to go to a salon yet so I took a leap and got on this site. I cannot say enough how respectful and cautious Ana was. She wore a face shield, face mask and shoe covers the entire time! She used sterile, disposable items and even protected my carpet so as to ensure there were no accidents! Best of all my hands and feet are back to their pre pandemic selves thanks to the magic hands of Ana!
I’ve been going to nail salons for pretty much my whole adult life and have never had as relaxing and professional of an experience as I did using this service! I will never go back to a traditional salon again and will be booking Ana again for all my future nail care services!!

It’s always a pleasure to patron this business! The staff is very accommodating, they take necessary safety measures, and they do excellent work on both nails and feet. The nail techs take pride in their work; their service is never a rushed. The owner is very responsive and kind. I will refer all my family & friends!

My daughter and I were planning a trip to FL and thought it would be nice to have a spray tan before we left. Susan came out and was super nice, made us feel comfortable and gave us an awesome tan. She listened to what we wanted and gave us the color that we desired. I really appreciate that. In addition it is super convenient to get sprayed in the comfort of your own home. I highly recommend her!!

My wife is 8 months pregnant and I booked services for her online. She, of course, has difficulty reaching her feet due to her baby “bump” and cannot go into regular nail salons because of the terrible acrylic smell. Her stylist from In the Nick of Time, Desiree, came to our home, gave her a fabulous pedicure and did her hair- it looked great! The booking process was easy and it was affordable. I would recommended In the Nick of Time to all expecting mothers!

Thank you! We had a girls night in party and had 3 stylists come to our hotel. It was great. The stylists were all very professional and did great work. Thank you!

I received home nail and hair care from the stylists at In the nick of time. I was able to pick who I wanted to do my hair on the website. I have thick curly hair so it was necessary for me to have someone who could handle it! The stylist was polite and professional. I have booked her again and again! Much thanks to this wonderful service!
