Booking an appointment for a beauty or wellness service might be a pain due to no availability of specific beauty practitioners or timing, but a Glamy is looking to fill the gap, an online platform to book services related to beauty and wellness. If being smart about our time and efforts is one of our 2016 resolutions, perhaps this startup could be one of the ways in which we can start.
On an average, a woman spends anywhere between Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000 on a monthly basis on basic beautifying services. And because professional women lead busy lives, some tend to prefer availing of such services at home. According to some industry estimates, the market size for beauty services eyes around USD 4.8 billion and it’s growing in India.
What Glamy essentially provides is a unique form of instant and real time booking availability for niche beautifying services. Mayank, co-founder of Glamy said, “With this, a completely new way of booking a beauty appointment is born. You can book your appointment at midnight with instant confirmation and be assured to get your treatment. Also you can access real-time calendars of salons and see if you can just stop for a quick manicure next door in the next 30 minutes. It’s a completely new way and new experience!”
“Going one step up Glamy is set to launch its on demand beautifying services. Observing that professional women lead busy lives, some tend to prefer availing of such services at home. Busy lifestyles, rise in consumerism, strong economic backgrounds, and relatively better incomes are driving the growth of on-demand beauty space and we will be entering into this segment also” He added.
