Like the rest of the world, the hairdressing industry is embracing new digital technologies. Here at Reds we’re riding this wave of innovation, with our website, Facebook page and Twitter account becoming important ways to connect and stay engaged with our clients.
Along with these digital platforms, our in salon iPad has proven to be a fantastic tool, allowing our stylists to quickly find and compare styles and colours for you to choose from.
Adding to this surge of new technologies is the newly developed Style ID iPad app, created by Wellington’s own Janine Simons, owner of the award-winning salon Mane and Larissa Mcleman from the award-winning salon Blue Cactus. As the New Zealand Salon of the Year, Reds has been specially selected to trial this new app with our clients.
Designed to enhance the traditional consultation process, the app helps our stylists to determine your face shape and your desired style, including length, fringe and texture. This information is combined to produce a range of images to illustrate possible looks appropriate to your specific needs. Our stylists then use these images as an additional aid to ensure you get the best result possible.
While an app will never replace the conversation you have with our trained and talented stylists, smart apps like this one will provide us with another useful tool, bringing together your hair needs and technology in an exciting way.
The trial will continue for the next few months, after which we will give our feedback to the app’s creator. If you’re keen to be part of the development of this groundbreaking technology, ask your stylist about the Style ID app at your next visit.
