The app provides social networking as well as the ability to book and pay for beauty treatments.
Spotted: Sharmadean Reid, the founder of WAH Nails, has just launched her latest business venture: Beautystack, a beauty service booking app. Beautystack connects customers with beauticians based on the ‘looks’ produced by each professional.
Beautystack strives to make it easier for independent creatives to earn a living by providing booking, messaging and payment administrative support.
With current social media platforms, the talent of these creatives results in online likes and shares. However, there is no way to book the look. Now, with Beautystack, if a viewer likes a post featuring someone’s latest look, they can connect with the professional behind it.
The networking side of the app provides beauticians with insight into each client’s likes and dislikes. That helps improve the personalisation of each appointment.
No stranger to success, Reid recently raised €4.5 million in seed funding through Index Ventures. While still in early stages, the company’s plans for development include strengthening the support available to beauty pros and expanding opportunities for partnerships.
