Beauty on TApp, a South African mobile app that connects beauty service providers such as hairstylists, make-up artists, hair braiders, and eyebrow threaders and beauty product suppliers to potential customers in their area has expanded to Nigeria and UK after a successful run in South Africa.
Founded in 2015 by Mathebe Molise and Sihle Mchunu, the mobile application provides a seamless platform for beauty service and product suppliers to showcase their work and connect them to their customers.
“In order to ensure that we provide customers with the best beauticians and beauty products, we screen suppliers to ensure that we only offer you the best,” Molise said.
To ensure continuous good service, Molise added that customers have the opportunity to rate services they have received from the various service and product suppliers. The ratings and feedback from customers acts as a value add for suppliers as this feedback from customers enables them to continuously improve their business.
The Beauty on TApp says it will continuously expand into new markets to make it a global app to give service providers and beauty product suppliers access to a greater market across the world.
The app works simply by allowing users to click on ‘get an Uber’ feature then salon physical addresses show up next to one’s destination. The user then picks the preferred beautician near their destination. It’s expansion into new markets shows the app is serious on its mission to reach more users and help beauticians increase their reach as well. With increasing uptake of internet use across Africa, most of the normal services are are increasingly being moved online and Beauty on TApp is win for both consumers and beauty service providers.
“Whether you find your next hair stylist next door or visit an unfamiliar city, your beauty needs will be one TApp away. Beauty on TApp seeks to give users a database of reliable beauticians and beauty products wherever they are,” said the team on their website. “Furthermore, the app will make sure proudly South African products are marketed to global Beauty on TApp users. The application will soon allow registrations from beauty service providers from other countries, as we would love to give our users access to top beauty service and product suppliers wherever they are.”
