Swivel Beauty

 

Swivel Beauty is an online marketplace for women of color with textured hair who need a convenient way to find skilled hairstylists they can trust. Our platform takes a user from looking to booking the right stylist for her in just a few clicks, while helping stylists grow their client base by 20% or more. Unlike other marketplaces that fail to capture the complexities of the textured hair care consumer, our personalized, texture-specific approach is creating a first-of-its-kind empowering community for women of color, who spend 9x more on beauty than any other ethnic group.
