While you could already do this on StyleSeat’s desktop site, the technology originally only catered to beauty professionals when CEO and co-founder Melody McCloskey launched the concept in 2011.
The initial idea was to create something where members of the industry could essentially run and manage a beauty service business from the backend. Lucky for them, they still can. However, now that enough professionals are on board, McCloskey is opening it up for clients — enabling them to find a hairstylist or massage therapist, and book their appointments.
The app boasts 200,000 professionals in close to 15,000 cities. So, in theory, you can find a nail place or hair salon wherever you happen to be.
Even though others sites offer similar services, Styleseat’s nation-wide capability means it has a lot of potential to be the go-to scheduling app for the masses.
If you ask us this is heaven-sent. After all, by the time we dig up the phone number, wait for an answer, and finally book our appointment it seems like a major chunk of our day. StyleSeat is available to download for free for iOS and Android.
