StyleSeat Introduces Redesigned App with New Features as Mobile Bookings Grow

Mobile bookings now account for 60% of all beauty appointments booked on StyleSeat

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- StyleSeat, the largest and fastest growing online marketplace for beauty and wellness services, today launched a redesigned mobile app that includes a number of exciting new features that make it even easier to find and book beauty professionals, especially for last minute appointments. In just eight months since the company launched its app for clients, mobile bookings have grown to account for more than 60% of all beauty appointments booked on StyleSeat.

"This app release is a major step towards StyleSeat truly becoming your one destination for beauty and style services," said Melody McCloskey, co-founder and CEO of StyleSeat. "We're making it simple to book any beauty appointment at the last minute, whether it's a manicure at 4pm today or a blowout before an important meeting tomorrow morning, while helping our users seamlessly manage appointments with their favorite beauty professionals. StyleSeat has an industry-leading collection of more than 250,000 professionals on our platform, more than anyone else in the category, and we're continuing to innovate and make it easier to look and feel your best every day."

In addition to a completely new look, the updated app includes new features such as:

  • New ways to search – clients can now search by specific services such as color or braids as well as by availability for a specific time. For example, someone can now search for a stylist available to do a blowout at 4pm today in San Francisco.
  • Express checkout – clients can now pay for appointments through the app.
  • Appointments management – clients can now cancel, rebook and see all appointments they have booked with various beauty professionals over time.

More than 26% of appointments booked through StyleSeat are made at the last minute – less than 24 hours before the appointment time, underscoring the value of the new app enabling clients to search for beauty professionals available at a specific time. The ability to pay for a beauty appointment at the time of booking simplifies the entire experience for an increasingly mobile society.

StyleSeat has experienced rapid growth with more than 8 million appointments and more than $500 million in services booked on the platform since inception. StyleSeat was founded in 2011 when CEO and co-founder Melody McCloskey wanted a better way to book beauty appointments on-the-go. The online and mobile platform serves both sides of the marketplace. StyleSeat gives beauty professionals free tools to run, manage and grow their business. It gives clients a place to discover and book appointments online or from their phones with professionals in their area, whether it's a same-day blowout, a haircut next month or a manicure tomorrow.

The StyleSeat app is free and available for iOS and Android.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
