If beauty apps have their way, DC partiers, philanthropists, and politicos may be the most pampered people on the planet! Another on-location beauty service has recently launched, bringing make-up and hair services to clients on demand at their work, home or hotel room.
After launching in Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles, Stylisted Co-Founders Lauren Katzberg & Julia Carmona quietly set their sights on the nation’s capital’s ever-blossoming beauty market.
“DC has been on our list of top cities since Stylisted’s inception in 2013. Our business was built with the DC woman in mind – the busy professional juggling career, family, and a rich social calendar,” insists Carmona.
Like a few other recent on-demand beauty services, Stylisted is a website and mobile application (available for iOS / launching Android in Spring 2016) that allows women to book blowouts and dry styling, updos and braiding, makeup application and lashes, among other beauty-related services (including Bridal) at any location of the client’s choosing.
Yet Stylisted allows clients to browse specific stylist bios and photo galleries and read reviews before submitting payment through a secure payment processor. The app also allows a direct communication feature for clients and stylists to text before an appointment so they can share anything from style inspiration to logistical details.
“Ultimately, we want DC stylists to use the Stylisted platform to run what is essentially their own small business,” said Katzberg.
Stylisted expects the power-rich but time-poor women in the DC area to utilize the service for everything from weddings… to prepping for the Kennedy Center Honors… to all of those charity galas always going on.
