Beauty that delivers
MILK Beauty is redefining how and when people experience beauty treatments — taking it from the high street to wherever they are.
From massages, to manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials and tanning services, we’re there in customers’ homes, their offices, hotels and events anywhere across London, every day until late.
We’re built on a reputation as the ‘perfect house guest’ through a one-of-a-kind operating model.
With every trained therapist graduating from our in-house MILK Training Academy, we’re ensuring our service standards are consistently high. Thanks to our three hubs across London, therapists arrive swiftly, and treatments are delivered personally and professionally.
“The really attractive aspect of this treatment was the easy click-and-book facility, and having someone coming to me and fitting in with my schedule. Thumbs up.”
Beauty is a lifestyle service
Just like dry cleaning, shoe repairs or taking a taxi — beauty is another essential lifestyle service for busy women.
Hassle-free, great service quality, MILK Beauty is there to flex to today’s lifestyle demands.
Traditionally, booking beauty services at a salon meant leaving work early or at a set moment for a time-consuming commute, or if you’re a parent, finding someone to look after your children. In short — the fixed beauty salon just doesn’t fit into urban consumers’ demanding lives.
Click, book, we deliver
MILK Beauty offers high-quality beauty services to people’s door wherever they are and at a time that’s most convenient to them.
Treatments take place in the comfort of a client’s home, the office or a hotel, or wherever needed — eliminating the need for a busy commute or expensive childcare.
Our services are booked and paid for online. In a few clicks, and in just an hour, a therapist can be with the client.
Beauty on everyone’s terms
The positive impact of MILK Beauty is already being felt. We’re at the sweet spot between having gained fantastic reviews from everyone from the Telegraph to Tatler and a loyal customer base. We’re now ready to take it to the next level – offering more, deepening relationships and growing with purpose.

Lucy Patterson, Managing Director and Founder of MILK Beauty.
The blueprint for growth
We’ve already drawn up a ‘Best in Sector’ template for delivering excellent client service. It’s now time to fundraise to kick start our next growth phase, to scale.
Our actions for 2016 —
• Scale a targeted customer-acquisition campaign
An accelerated marketing campaign will drive trials in places closest to our hubs. This will enable us to reach scale efficiently and quickly.
• Build on our operating model
We want to invest in our operational framework to be even more efficient. We’re going to optimise the margin by extending our client visit durations and opportunities for up- and cross-selling.
We also want to enrich the mix of freelance and employed therapists to reduce our drive times to our clients’ treatment locations.
Taking it to the next level
We’ll build more awareness of the MILK Beauty brand across London through continued excellent press coverage, a key influencer campaign, and tactical brand partnerships.
