About

My idea is for a search and book hairdressing app

Users can search for either a mobile hairdresser in their area:
- if new to town or visiting
- the disabled who can't get to a physical hairdresser
- the elderly
- those without transport
- weddings
- group social events

or a physical hairdresser in a particular location.  

Appointments can be booked on the app and can be paid using PayPal or credit card which would secure the booking.

A small discount would be offered to users if they pay using the app - approx 5%.

Customers can review and rate the salons.    

The app will keep track of user appointments and will send the user a reminder to make an appointment - approx 6 weeks after last appointment.

The app would be available for free however the businesses involved would pay a fee to be featured - approx $20 per month AUD with a minimum 12 month contract.


Businesses would be signed up 2 ways:
1.  direct contact by myself, inviting them to join the app
2.  by peer reviews - users can add a salon, review and rate the service - this business would be contacted by myself and invited to join the app

Initially this app would cover my local area of south east Queensland as I will be on the ground contacting businesses but with the assistance of user reviews etc from point 2. above, the areas the app covered would grow easily and spread worldwide which is my aim eventually.

I would like this app to a combination of Menulog and Trip Advisor


I have been in contact with a tech company who can build the app for me - they have estimated approx $15,000 AUD.

I moved to another state last year and would have loved this app.

Risks and challenges

In terms of risks and challenges with this project, the only I can see would be the challenge of finding a reputable app creator but I have a solution to that problem - I know of a couple of people with app creation experience, from a financial point of view, not the coding itself. So I am confident I will hire the right person/people to build the app and assist me with the tech side of this project.

I'm a really organised person and don't see any problems with the day-to-day of this project once it's up and running. I have experience in running small businesses as well as sales experience which will be vital at the beginning.

I envision alot of running around, phone calls and emails to prospective businesses, pointing out the benefits of this app for them.
I am excited at the thought ... this is my baby and I'm filled with enthusiasm and cannot wait to get it started.
