HairFare is an end-to-end hair & beauty chair rental platform, which has been designed to open up more flexible working options and greater earning potential to hair and beauty professionals across the UK. The HairFare platform offers a convenient and reliable way for freelance hair and beauty professionals to connect to premises around the country, and serve their clients efficiently.
Business owners are struggling to find staff, while on the other hand, professionals are stuck on fixed term contracts and tied down to a single location. Furthermore, in the current climate where the hair & beauty industry has been one of the hardest hit by Covid-19, both business owners and professionals need to bounce back and ensure they capitalise on the demand for their services.

Our current monetisation strategy consists of taking a commission from each booking that takes place.
We also plan to create additional revenue through the HairFare academy. This will consist of an academy which trains aspiring hair and beauty professionals, enabling them to start their career within the hair and beauty industry. As part of this plan, we will create a personalised and virtual syllabus for students.
As well as releasing HairFare merchandise and supplies which will consist of aprons, combs, gowns etc.
Further into our journey we aim to create a subscription package, for both business owners and beauty professionals, whereby users will be able to pay a monthly subscription fee and not need to pay commission on each booking. Within these packages there will be specific benefits and perks for the type of user which will increase the retention rate.
We believe there are further avenues for revenue growth including project management of businesses, marketing as well as partnerships with hair and beauty brands.
