Hi Product Hunt! πŸ‘‹πŸΎ I’m Sharmadean Reid, CEO of Beautystack - a visual beauty booking platform I co-founded in 2017 with a simple mission: Global, social beauty booking. Powering the next generation of Beauty Professionals worldwide while digitising the centuries old question of "Where did you get your hair done?" I developed the idea for Beautystack over the last 10 years while creating the pioneering WAH Nails salon. As a 24 yr old without the adequate tools to run my social media driven business, I had felt the problems Beauty Pros face first hand. And although I have been thinking about the problem for a decade, Β it wasn’t until I met my cofounders, Dan Woodbury and Ken Lalobo that we started working on V1 of the app where you can browse the latest treatments via images and see it, like it, book it. Our first version of the app allows Beauty Pros to build their visual menu (you book directly from the pictures, not browse a portfolio and then screenshot the style you want), connect their calendars, but more importantly, connect their bank accounts. By allowing women across the globe to monetize their skills, Beautystack is able to provide flexible work and facilitate financial independence. Financial independence = freedom. Earlier this year, we raised a Β£4m Seed Round from investors at Index Ventures who agree, and believe in our vision of supporting beauty entrepreneurs around the world. Over the past 6 months, we’ve been able to hone our vision, build an amazing company culture and have a clear direction towards product market fit. We will use this funding to hire a stellar team. To find curious, creative, analytical people, and drive our business forward. We intend to continue to do our favourite things: build stuff and talk to users. So thank you for all of your feedback, and for your continued support. We can’t wait to show you what’s coming next. ✨
@sharmadeanreid - This idea is fire! ...installing
@sharmadeanreid I have had so many bad haircuts because I can't articulate what I want to the stylist. This is very very cool from the backstory to the end product! PM me if I can ever help...

This is amazing @sharmadeanreid ! Finally the bucks are moving to actual real businesses instead of paid and sometimes disingenuous influencers.
@sharmadeanreid @srameshrr - totally agree - great great idea
This is a very good idea to while looking for good hair cuts and great make up.
I’ve been following Sharmadean and Beautystack for a while now and I’ve been very impressed with the strength of vision and capability of their team. Looking forward to seeing the growth that their latest fundraising brings them!
