We've all been there - those frantic Monday mornings where you race out the door without so much as running a brush through your hair, let alone fixing your chipped digits. And let's not even talk about the back-to-work depression that strikes at the start of many a working week.

Happening now: free beauty treatments every Monday

Until now: Sephora is setting out to make it all better and we can't thank them enough:  starting today, each Monday at their Pitt Street, Sydney, store the beauty empire will offer complimentary hair and nail treatments for city workers throughout the day, so you can swing by during your coffee run or lunch break and swap manic Monday for mani Monday - which, we're sure you realise, is SO much better.

A different brand from Sephora's exclusive staple will deliver mini manicures in store each week, from Marc Jacobs Beauty to Formula X.  Having a bad hair day? "Hair services will include straightening, soft waves and volumising for a bit of a Monday lift, executed by some of our best brands and their professional staff, including Sachajuan and Amika," says Libby Amelia, country manager at Sephora Australia. We could kiss her feet.
