FOR WOMEN WHO GET EYELASH EXTENSIONS: Is this a good business idea (i.e. - would you buy this service?)

I am a lover of individual eyelash extensions despite how costly they are. Since getting them I have never been extension free b/c I feel naked without them. I get touchups religiously to maintain them but have issues getting appointments right when i need them b/c the spa i go to only has 1 lash person. so if I need them right before a big date and the person i want is booked i'm sol. This got me to thinking that other women probably feel the same way so I wanted to start a members service that would reward users with affordable lashes from the comfort of their homes.
I figure it could work like this:
(1) you sign up to become a member, monthly fees are deducted from your account (totaling the cost of 2 sessions at a discount) and you can schedule 2 appointments per month anytime for someone to come and do your lashes for you in your home (like a mobile spa)
(2) You sign up to become a member which requires you to pay upfront for a package (4 sessions, 8 sessions, etc.) thereby getting a discount. You schedule your appt anytime within a given time period (e.g. 4 sessions you have 2 months to use) and someone will come to your house and do them for you.
My question is, would you (lover of eyelash extensions) be interested in a service like this? Would you want to get lash extensions in your home or would you rather go to a salon? Also, what issues do you foresee me having? i.e. - is this actually a need in the market I would be filling?
