1.Tell us a little about your company.
The development of the SalonMom App was inspired by the personal experiences of a well-known, Los Angeles based hairstylist who has her own busy Salon and also travels the world educating other hairstylists. She realized from her experiences locally and nationwide for many busy professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, employees, new moms and others it is completely impossible to get the basic beauty care such as a simple color application to cover grays, a haircut, blow dry or even a quick manicure because of time. Whether it is their busy schedule, work hours, work days or whatever the case may be, all of these women have lack of time in common. Clients end-up feeling defeated fighting traffic and finding parking for an appointment. The SalonMom App is the perfect means to an end!
2. What made you want to start this company?
I decided to start SalonMom as a result to Uber opening the doors allowing strangers into your car than the same can be done at the house, office, hotel or hospital!
3. What is it about LA that benefits your business or initiative most?
Los Angeles is the perfect place for this App to grow organically cause everyone wants to feel like a star without spending an arm and leg. Prices from the SalonMom App are very comparable to your local salon prices.
4. Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a local LA native and grew up in Palos Verdes but built my hair career in Beverly Hills. I wanted to be in the city with a variety of different clientele !
5. What’s you favorite local spot for a cup of coffee or a fresh juice or smoothie?
My favorite place to get a juice is Kreation! I love going there and my green juice and a coffee! Everything is fresh and healthy alternative options to dairy!
6. What is you go to weekend activity with the kids?
The Santa Monica Pier is such a great place to take children! I love going to the pier and going on a ride and playing arcades with my boyfriends daughter or my friends kids and than hopping down to the beach to get some sun and play in the sand and topping the day off with a later lunch! It’s fun for everyone!
