What is the history and popularity of the app?

StyleSeat was created to help customers and health and beauty professionals find one another. The current StyleSeat team includes CEO Melody McCloskey, Product Development lead Dan Levine, Senior Software Engineers Dan Linder and Greg Garson and Community and Marketing Manager Michelle Dong.

What are the differences to other apps?

StyleSeat helps users locate professional health and beauty businesses in their local area. The site provides more detailed information than a basic location search or the telephone book could offer. Users can see recommendations and also become inspired by beauty-related images posted on the site. StyleSeat works both ways because businesses can build up their customer base by becoming members of the StyleSeat network.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The StyleSeat website welcomes users with a well-organized, neat design that includes a white background and dark banner. The elegant font style creates a unique, though simple, logo in black. Four small links at the top of the homepage help users find the photo area, professional listings and other main pages on the site. The homepage also includes featured professionals with an image and a photo of the day highlighted in light blue.

How does the registration process work?

Visitors are not required to sign up for a StyleSeat account to browse the site’s listings or photos. However to get the most benefit, users can create an account. Doing so gives the user a $25 credit towards their next service purchase. To sign up, the user only has to provide their email address and zip code in the fields provided at the top of the homepage (inside the dark colored header). After doing so, the use can click the blue “Sign Up” button to the right of the fields to submit their information. Once the information has been submitted, the user is asked for a first and last name and a password to complete registration.
