Hairstee ‘Uber for hair’ launched

Newly-launched booking app Hairstee has been hailed the ‘Uber for hair’.

That’s because the first hair-only focussed beauty app in the UK, for both men and women, can deliver a hair professional to the home in a matter of minutes! And even better, there is no more fretting about when (or even if) that hairdresser is going to turn up since the app’s real-time geo-tag monitoring service allows the user to see exactly where he or she is.

All professionals who use Hairstee are vetted beforehand. More than 100 hairdressers have signed up to the service since its soft launch in 2018, covering locations such as London, Manchester, Brighton, Liverpool and Reading. Hairstee also caters to a varying clientele, with about 40 per cent of the hairdressers already signed up cutting Afro-Caribbean hair for example.

Customers who use the app still have the option of going to a salon near them if they prefer and have the time. The app also allows customers to filter hairdressers, not just in terms of location and hair specialism, but also by price.

Payment is made via the app using a variety of different card and online methods.

“A huge selling point for this type of service is its flexibility,” says founder and CEO Yemi Busari. “In the past you would have to book an appointment at least a day in advance or go to a salon and hang around waiting
for a ‘stand by’ appointment. Now you can get a professional haircut more or less when it suits you – provided there is a professional nearby.”

The app displays profiles of local hairdressers for customers to choose from, outlining style specialities, costs and availability as well as ratings and reviews from previous customers.
