Hairly Beauty & Salon

Hairly was developed with the aim to give users the ease of booking and managing their salon appointment on the go as nobody has the time or patience to wait in a queue once they reach the salon.

Project idea

The idea was to give users access to multiple salons and book their preferred date and time for appointment without having to individually visit their apps/websites.

Target audience

The app can be used by almost anyone, but it is majorly used by the millennials who have to manage their salon appointments in between their tight schedules.

Project Challenges

  • Validation booking time slots
  • Building UI and Animations

Solution

We provided the client with a dynamic mobile app with an easy to use navigation tool that will keep the users hooked to the app.

Planning

Vision
Some of the initial project ideas from client were:
  • Multiple salons in a single app
  • Multiple payment options
  • Easy management of customer data
Analysis
An analysis of client’s input resulted in:
  • Brainstorming sessions with the Android & iOS team
  • An outline of the project requirements
  • Meetings with the client to decide the scope of work
Outcome
After internal discussions we provided the client with:
  • The final requirement document
  • Project estimation
  • App testing plan

User persona

In order to figure out which customer base to target more, we did a bit of research on the user’s demand for current situations. And doing the study we found that there are some working professionals, busy moms, and students that can not spare time to visit the salon. But women have certain things to get done and hence we came up with the following personas.

    Rosita Bellor

  • Age: 25
  • Location: New York
  • Profession: Fashion Design

About

She lives in Newyork, alone with her roommate pursuing fashion designing for her further education. Apart from that she also works in a fashion brand store for her internship. If we look at her day-to-day life, she is pretty stock up with work and hence we can assume that she has limited time to forbear to visit the salon.

But on the other hand, he is also a tech-savvy person and tends to use the iPhone over Android. She works for longer hours let’s say 7 am to 9 pm (including internship and further studies). Hence she has less time to spare for such leisure activities.

Rosita needed a solution for her hair care problems because let’s admit women have certain things to get done for the time being. So she believes that it would be great if she gets a salon at home.

    Michone Kwinsky

  • Age: 30
  • Location: Singapore
  • Profession: Part-time writer

About

Michone is a full-time mother of two kids, which she already finds messed up to even cop up with the household work. Besides that, she is a working professional as well, she is constantly working, taking care of her kids, and cooking for the family.

It is understandable that when you have such a packed up schedule to look upon every day she can’t find an hour to pamper herself with a refreshing salon visit.

Michone is looking for a legit home salon solution for her pamper sessions every now and then, so she doesn’t have to step out of her house get the things done and also she doesn’t have to worry about her kids.

    Robin Scherbatsky

  • Age: 28
  • Location: San fransisco
  • Profession: IT professional

About

Robin lives all by her self in San Fransisco and she is an IT professional and being on a top position she always has meetings and conferences with higher authorities. And she believes that being a woman always on the go, she likes to be up-to-date about her looks and therefore she visits the salon almost every weekend.

After working Monday to Friday, she hardly has the strength to even step out of her house. Also, she likes to just be a little lazy on weekends, and during her leisure time, she likes to read a book or cook good food.

So, in this scenario, she wonders if the salon can come to her door-step and she can pamper herself in her own comfortable house.

Mood board

Setting the mood of users is a very important step in salon app development, it will create an emotional connection with the users and the application. It is a one kind of a library in which you will be able to see what fonts the designers used and what color pallet they selected.

User flow

User flow is again a very important part of Salon Appointment Booking App Development, it is basically a diagram that shows the user interaction from beginning to end. The flowchart starts with the user’s entrance point on the product, like an onboarding screen or homepage, and ends with the final action or outcome, like buying a product or signing up for an account.

“The team at Kody Technolab has the experience of working across industry verticals and that could be seen from how quickly they understood the project requirements and our target audience. We did not have to put in much effort to communicate with them about what we expect from the project. But we can definitely say that we are quite impressed by the final outcome.”
