Today I’m here to share an up and coming website which I think is pretty cool, Rock Pamper Scissors. It’s a new and easy way to book hair and beauty salon appointments online.

Over the last few years I’ve been moving around a lot which means that I’m always on the look out for a new hairdresser. I often put off getting my hair done because I simply don’t know where to start when picking one in a new city. I haven’t had my hair done since I last moved house (shhh!). I’m also the type of person who leaves it very last minute to book any type of treatment. I tend to wake up and realise it’s time to get my hair sorted and start calling around different hair salons so I think Rock Pamper Scissors is going to be very useful for me.

It’s important to note that the website is still very new. Rock Pamper Scissors started off in good old Leeds, makes a change to have cool things happening up north than just in London. The second city they’re trying to capture is Manchester, the city I lived in for 5 years. So, you can see the current salons for Leeds on the website and the list for Manchester is in the process of being populated.

Rock Pamper Scissors makes it very easy for you to simply pick the treatment you’re looking for such as hair, make-up or nails and then select your location. You’re then presented with all the local services in the area that have signed up. You can even narrow your search down by price and distance which is very handy. I think it’s going to be very useful and I look forward to more companies getting involved and listing their services and locations.

After browsing the list of salons you hit ‘book now’ and you will then be presented with available stylists and nail technicians, including photos and prices. I don’t know about you, but I like to be able to put a face to a name when I’m going for a treatment. I think this is a nice personal touch to the website.

At the end of the month I’m going to Manchester for the day to see my friend and thought that I would test out Rock Pamper Scissors and see if I can make the most of my trip.

There’s a section on the site for salons to get themselves listed. I know I’ll be spreading the word and I would love to see companies getting involved and helping to populate the website. I can see Rock Pamper Scissors working really well as an app.

Finally, I wanted to let you know that I’ve worked in collaboration with Rock Pamper Scissors for this post. Wait, don’t go anywhere! You all know I love to support small businesses and this is what I’m doing with Rock Pamper Scissors, I truly believe that this website has got very good potential.
