I tried booking my hair appointment through BeautyBuddy and here's how it went | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

I don’t know about you, but self-care and self-maintenance are activities that I enjoy. There are a couple of things that I like to do every so often just for that added boost of confidence. And am I the only one who thinks that a new hairstyle or freshly painted nails can instantly turn my mood around? Or that some days you just need a massage to de-stress? But as someone who has a tight schedule, sometimes it’s quite easy to forget to take time for yourself. There’s even been a couple of times when I booked an appointment, only to forget and not show up. Yikes!

With the ever-evolving beauty and wellness industry in the Philippines, a new tech start-up aims to manage its client’s bookings by providing a portal where they can browse through different salons, services, and styles and book an appointment in an instant. Established in 2022, BeautyBuddy is an all-in-one digital management and marketing platform for salons, barbershops, spas, and aesthetic centers in the Philippines.

You can book your appointment through their website. The site features a menu of different styles, services, stylists, and salons that customers can choose from. Their current partners include Basement Salon, Beauty & Butter nail salon, Spray, and many more which you can check out on their website. They are also working on onboarding other brands for clients to choose from. 

I tried booking through the app myself and here’s how it went:

Booking process

Beauty Buddy without a doubt successfully made appointment bookings easy and convenient for their clients. All I had to do was go to their site, create an account, and start browsing through the services they offer. Once I’ve decided on where I want to book– I chose Basement Salon, the app then takes you to choose from the services the salon offers. This page has all the services listed together with their prices and an estimate of how long the process will take. Once you’ve chosen, booking is as easy as adding to cart the service type you want. BeautyBuddy then gives you the option to choose your preferred stylist (or none) from the salon’s staff and takes you to pick a schedule based on their availability. 


Once I was done booking, I received a confirmation message from BeautyBuddy with the details of my appointment. And like a true “beauty buddy”, they sent me a reminder on the day of the appointment. This is made possible through the personalized communication feature, specific to each customer account. 

The Appointment

Walking into my appointment and immediately starting my service was impressive. I’ve had one or two unpleasant experiences where I was made to wait despite having a booking because my preferred stylist is still with another client so I was grateful not to have any wait time. The service at Basement salon was nothing but amazing. As a salon known for its hair coloring services, I had to try it for myself. I needed a color refresh and to put life back into my hair and they were able to do just that. The staff was absolutely attentive and made sure to provide the best level of service. And the best head massage too! I walked out of the salon beyond satisfied with my new color, especially with how soft and silky my hair felt. 

Overall, BeautyBuddy might just be your new best friend and go-to for all your beauty booking needs.
