Salonch - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

No, my experience is in the beauty industry, which has given me the insight to solve the problems that beauty industry professionals face.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Finding the right development team to work with.

Kerrie Brandau, co-founder and CEO of 'Salonch', is passionate about developing the best technology to help salon, spa, and barbershop owners. A former salon and day spa owner, and cosmetologist with thirty years of experience in the beauty industry, Kerrie understands the pain points of small business ownership, staff retention, and staff recruitment firsthand. This is why Brandau designed and created the 'Salonch' app with her team.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

'Vagaro' is one of the first scheduling and client management apps for small salons and independent beauty professionals. This app is easy to use and designed well for the beauty industry. I am also a huge fan of 'Airbnb' because of its variety of accommodations, but what I think makes this app stand out is its fantastic design.

How long have you been working on this app?

We have been developing 'Salonch' and beta testing for two years in the San Francisco Bay Area. 'Salonch' is now available nationwide in the US.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

One of the biggest challenges beauty establishment owners face is finding the right beauty industry professionals to join their team. Also, with the 'Salonch' app, the beauty professional can now make an informed decision about which salon, spa, or barbershop is the right match for them.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

'Salonch' is the only platform where beauty professionals can go to learn all the detailed information that is important to them in finding the right beauty establishment opportunities. Each salon has its own vibe, structure, and mission, and each beauty professional has their own unique personality, style, and career goals. 'Salonch' allows owners to attract their ideal team by providing the beauty pro with the information that they need to make an informed career decision.

Other platforms simply allow owners to post job listings. These listings provide very little information and aren’t effective in attracting the desired candidate, which ends up wasting the owner’s time and money. 'Salonch' was created for the beauty industry, by beauty professionals. We understand the industry’s needs, and we are proud to be offering this solution.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

The newest feature being released this month for the app will be a beauty consumer feature. This feature will allow beauty consumers to find salons, spas, and barbershops to receive their beauty services. Consumers have a need in finding beauty establishments that fit their personality, their style, their service needs, and budget. With the 'Salonch' app, they will be able to search by town or city for the type of establishment that they are interested in. They can view a photo gallery of the salon, read about the salon, view the salon service and product menus, read bios of the beauty professionals, bookmark their favorites, call the salon for an appointment directly through the app, and so much more.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

About App: The Salonch app connects salon, spa and barbershop owners with licensed beauty industry staff. With Salonch, owners showcase what makes their business unique, what they are looking for in a team member, and what they have to offer the beauty professional for employment or rental. The beauty professional can search for a specific type of salon, spa, or barbershop in the city or town they desire to work. They can then learn detailed information about each establishment in their search and what career opportunities each has to offer. They can bookmark their favorites and contact the owner directly through the app. Owners are now able to attract a team that will be the right fit for their business model, structure, and team culture.
