There is a portfolio section where salons can upload their favorite work, but reviews are the best. Honest reviews and real photos from customers who’ve been there before you.

I went for a color transformation with balayage

I was won over by the cascading waves of gorgeous colors featured in the Hair by knight reviews and took the plunge for a sweeping transformation at this posh Bristol salon.

I paid a deposit and it was booked within seconds. I was also able to schedule a skin test and consultation on the app, then got a convenient reminder a day before my appointment.

The consultation was a friendly chat with Lucy, the salon owner, about what I wanted, and I flashed the obligatory “I saw these cute styles on Instagram” photos.

That day, Lucy explained exactly what she was going to do so I knew what to expect, and as she brushed her way through my hair, I got a glimpse of her business journey. .

Booksy helped me find an amazing salon in my area

It was eight years ago when she and her father bought local store space which was rented out and the then 19-year-old space took it upon herself to design the living room. Think exposed brickwork and hanging plants. Read: ideal for Instagram.

Lucy explained that Booksy was a great tool for attracting new customersand it’s convenient for the team because reservations can be made at any time of the day, even when the lounge is not open.

They only use Milk_Shake products and the Kind-on-hair brand left my locks feeling amazing. With a few inches shorter and new sunny honey shades in my hair, I jumped the living room. On my way home, I left a quick review on Booksy and I’m already looking at beauty treatments in my area.
