Earlier this year, Wahanda launched their brand new beauty booking app, as a counterpart to its very successful website Wahanda.com. Their website is already the ultimate on-the-go guide for accessing appointments at over 4000 salons and spas in London and the rest of the UK. You can book anything beauty related from massages in top spas, to nails in your local salon and even special discounted offers at usually 40-50% off the high street rate. The Wahanda app takes this online beauty solution up a notch. Using GPS-led results, it will also collate to customer searches, showing customers businesses local to their area. A quick and efficient way for people on the go to book beauty appointments near them wherever they are in the country, straight from their iPhone or iPad.
Lopo Champalimaud, Wahanda CEO, says, “We are thrilled with this next step in our evolution. The way we live our lives is constantly changing and right now, we’re living in an age where many of us are using iPhones and iPads 24/7. Our app has been designed to reflect this and make booking beauty treatments faster and more convenient than ever.”
Wahanda simplifies treatments into nine simple categories such as Nails, Hair and Body with sub categories like manicure, blow dry and spray tanning. Or if you prefer you can even search by brand, with famous beauty names working with Wahanda including Essie, OPI, Kerastase, Dermalogica and L’Oreal. If you know your area or want to visit somewhere specific you can even search by venue name. Once your beauty treatment and salon is selected, you are able to view reviews, book appointments and process payment all via the app on your phone. Pretty quick, and simple! Some may say the reviews are the most important feature of Wahanda, as every treatment and salon/spa can be star-rated by previous clients and customers, so even if your are in an unfamiliar town and fancy a little beauty treat, you have word-of-mouth advice on where to go.
The ability to book your next haircut, wax or beauty treatment at the click of a button is genius, especially as you can grab last minute special offers, as a feature. Users can access their chosen venue on a map, see address details and find opening times. The ‘My venues’ feature also remembers previous appointments, enabling you to book any follow-up appointments. This app literally puts beauty at your fingertips!
When endorsing anything beauty related, naturally we have to try what it is we are writing about so House of Coco recently sampled the app, unearthing a fantastic sports massage therapist at OXY Massage therapy in Islington, London . Our beauty editor Scarlett enjoyed a firm (well overdue!) sports massage from Audrey in her private treatment room and with the payment previously sorted via the app, all stress or fuss was removed, making it a pleasurable experience.
So whether you’re disorganised, lacking in time or fancy a bargain beauty buy – the Wahanda app is a brilliant beauty short cut, simplifying the stress of booking time so you can focus more on the most important things in life – looking fantastic and relaxing (of course).
Wahanda’s app is now available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch at www.AppStore.com/Wahanda.
