Beauty Booked, Beautified, StyleSeat, Vagaro and Beauteeze are beauty apps that allow users to view salon profiles and reviews before booking salon appointments. Other beauty apps, such as R+Co, give personal product recommendations.
Beauty Booked was created by former L'Oreal executives Hillary Hutcheson and Ritika Gill. The app allows users to book appointments at New York City salons and spas and notes whether tips for each salon are taken by cash or credit. The user can search for salons by desired time, date, location, service and price range. Beautified, an app created by Hannah Bronfman, allows the user to choose from nine services, book same-day appointments and pay directly from the app. Beautified also keeps track of previous salon treatments.
StyleSeat allows the user to directly contact stylists. It contains photo portfolios of their work, detailed service descriptions and client reviews. Vagaro features the services, hours of operation and staff information of over 6,000 salons and spas, as well as a promotions tab that keeps track of current specials available at each business. Beauteeze, created by Abby Ziff and Adi Turgman, donates funds to a charity focused on empowering women. R+Co lets users select hairstyles through the app and gives them product recommendations and step-by-step instructions for styling their own hair.
