Then download L’Oréal Professionnel’s complimentary Style My Hair makeover app. Designed to help with consultations, the app offers 50 hairstyles and over 30 hair color options to select. Clients can choose from an existing model or upload their own photo to test new hairstyles and hair colors, or the latest runway or trend-setting haircuts—before they make a commitment. Available on iPhone and Android phones. Cost: Free
Connect with Your Distributor
Now all the reasons you need to contact your distributor—product requests, news on reward points, monthly deals, education classes in your area and how-to videos—can be found in one place: the mySC App, a new mobile application created by SalonCentric. Available on iPhone and Android phones. Cost: Free
Follow the Money
If you’re a perfectionist about your cuts and color, but not so much when it comes to finances, there’s an app to help you conquer that. Summit Salon's app helps salon pros to style smarter while counting every dollar. By calculating referrals, retail revenue, repeat customers, services executed per client—daily, weekly, monthly or annually—the app provides a financial report at your fingertips. Available on iPhones only. Cost: Free
Make Them Loyal
If you haven’t kissed your rewards punch cards goodbye, the Flok loyalty and rewards app can help by digitizing your program. Independent stylists and salon owners can create their own loyalty app with Flok, and obtain a variety of services, including push notifications, automated engagement, real-time chat, email reminders about appointments and mobile payment for check- outs and retailing.
