Online Salon and Hairdresser Booking Software
Understanding your business needs, one solution at a time.
Unorganized booking in salon industry
Lack of all-in-one platform
Personalized Hairdresser Booking
Defining The Problem
We have an itch to do deep research about the problem.
Our client runs a well-known association in the salon industry from the past few years in Canada.
Client determined that there is no such platform in the market which allows a customer to book an appointment and choose a hair dresser based on customer hair conditions.
Customers often struggle to find detailed information about hairdressers and salons, making it challenging to make informed choices.
Hairdressing is a highly personal service, and clients may not always find a stylist who aligns with their preferences and style.
Booking appointments can be cumbersome, and last-minute cancellations or no-shows inconvenience both clients and salons.
Many salon owners and hairdressers have limited online presence, making it challenging to attract new clients.

Understanding The Need
Our versatile case study makes this easy for us.
Where all the industries are moving towards the digital platforms, our client needed to take the salon industry online.
Users (both salon owners/hairdressers and customers) can create profiles with essential information, such as location, services offered, prices, and availability.
In this system, customers can schedule the appointment and define their hair condition in the system and the type of hair they want.
Customers should be able to search for salons or hairdressers based on location, services, reviews, and availability.
A seamless booking process with automated notifications for appointments, reminders, and confirmations.
Customized Instagram hairstyle photo feed where customers can select their hairstyle and find the expert hairdresser or salon.
Based on that the System will recommend the suitable services and hairdressers to the customer.
As the user base grew, scaling the platform to accommodate increasing traffic and bookings required careful planning.
Client wanted to add feedback and rating sections to help customers see the ratings of salon owners and can book appointments accordingly.
Analytics and insights into user interactions with their profiles.
Integration with payment gateways for booking fees or prepayments.

Our client was very responsive and helped us with every information needed.

Custom integration of Instagram’s photo feed into the web app.
Developing recommendation algorithms that accurately matched customers with salon professionals was challenging.
Creation of web app for individual salon owners in existing platform.
