A new Web service that allows you to search for salons and parlours depending on the look you feel

Deciding on a haircut has always been a challenge for the reporter, more than choosing doughnut flavours. The reporter has always wished there was a way to keep up with the latest trends than staring at a guy with a cool haircut, and being stared back., a new website that recently launched its services in India might come to the rescue and avoid such odd scenarios.

How the service works
Inspired by the chair at barbershops, combines two important factors in our daily lives — visiting a salon/parlour, and selfies — to keep its users updated about the latest styles and trends in a salon. Catering to men and women, you can browse salons and parlours based on style and therapies as well as upload a selfie of your latest haircut or treatment upload it on the website.

Some hair styles listed on the website

What’s on offer?
Users can browse through the latest trends in haircuts, nail art, tattoos, wellness treatments, and therapies, and choose from salons that offer them. The fact that you can see some of the works in advance, help you screen a salon or parlour before paying a visit. The website also offers a location-based search to help you find out various services in your neighbourhood — from premium beauty salons and wellness centres to the street barbershops — and the latest trending styles from them. Once you have selected a salon, it will tell you of the facilities available, including useful information like parking, lockers, Wi-Fi, payment modes and cancellation terms. Simply log on to the website select from a look or service, and you are good to go. However, to book an appointment, you are required to call the service directly.

First impression
We expect to become more useful after more users sign up. But so far, it’s a good idea both for those in the beauty and wellness industry as well as Mumbaikars to stay updated with the latest trends and styles.
