Our story - creating the worlD'S BIGGEST COMMUNITY OF FREELANCE BEAUTY PROFESSIONALS
After testing out our little idea with a WhatsApp group and an email address, we launched our first big girl website in January 2016. In the last year we have grown our team of mobile beauty professionals, we have had over 1,000 beauty services booked on our site and we have been lucky enough to work with an incredible team of the best Freelance beauty professionals in the country. Our little idea has grown into a big one and we were lucky enough to win out of 20 other startup companies at the NDRC Investor Day in December 2016 where we pitched Glissed.
The last year has given us a LOT of insight into how the industry operates and we have gotten a glimpse into what is right and wrong with the way things work at the moment. These learnings have led to many a late night in the office, lots of tea and chats with the best Make-up Artists and Hair Dressers in the biz, and plenty of talk with techies who have taught us a thing or two.
All of that has led to this. We are SUPER SUPER excited to be launching Glissed. We are building the World's Biggest Community for Freelance Beauty Professionals where customers can browse and book Freelancers directly, see their work, view their availability, and book and pay securely online.
We are working on an amazing app for beauty professionals to move away from the paper diary and cash and take their business online.
