For an app with a ton of different locations, check out the Glam App. What we love about this app in particular is that you can choose between three different stylists: bsg, which is a stylist with a year of experience and/or a graduate of beauty school; jrs, stylists with two to five years of experience; and vips, sought-out stylists with over five years experience. Your price will reflect your stylist’s level of experience, making the app accessible for everyone’s budget.
If you’re one who prefers to make beauty appointments on a whim, StyleSeat can help you find open appointments near you for practically every service under the sun: haircuts, hair styling, makeup, waxing, tanning, eyelash extensions and more. Simply type in your location, and let the app do all the work.
