StyleBee is a startup in our current class that lets people book beauty and
grooming services anytime and anywhere. For a flat fee of $50 plus tips, StyleBee sends beauty professionals to clients wherever they are — be in in their homes, at their offices, or in hotel rooms.
VentureBeat’s Ken Yeung wrote about StyleBee in a post today:
“Getting an appointment at a hair salon can be difficult and inconvenient, and that’s why StyleBee
came about. Backed by Y Combinator, the Uber for hairstyling defines
itself as ‘beauty on demand.’ Using the iOS app, users can schedule a
time when they want a stylist to come to them. Then the service will
find the right match and connect both parties.
…Cofounded by Anna Santeramo, StyleBee solves a problem she had when
she was working as a corporate attorney. When she needed her hair
styled, she couldn’t get an appointment, and when there was a spot
available, stylists wanted more money or had some other conditions. ‘It
wasn’t fair to me,’ she said.
Santeramo wanted house calls, which isn’t an option traditional
salons offer. The service is not just for hair styling, but also for
makeup, massages, and more.”
