WHY STYLESEAT IS A MUST FOR INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONALS:
On average, stylists waste more than ten hours a week on various administrative and business tasks. Imagine how many appointments you could fill with those extra ten hours! StyleSeat does the busy work for you so you can focus on delivering great services and getting paid.
- Your service menu is online. Clients can look through your services, read the descriptions, and get pricing information so you can stop wasting time answering inquiries.
- Clients book themselves. You won’t have to schedule a single appointment — no phone calls, texts, or DMs. Once you share your schedule online, clients can find a time that works for them, put a credit card on file, and book an appointment. You get a notification once the appointment is booked and all you have to do is show up and work your magic.
- You get bookings 24/7 Allowing clients to book and reschedule 24/7 means you never miss out on the opportunity for a booking — no more phone tag, texting back and forth, or full inboxes.
- You can easily accept touchless payments with credit cards. Clients put a credit card on file so check out is quick and painless.
- You get detailed reports. See a breakdown of your daily/monthly/yearly sales, deposits, and transactions — no need to manually keep track.
- You get paid when clients don’t show up. The average stylist faces 1-2 no-shows a week. For some, that can add up to nearly $5,000 a year. Set up a no-show late cancellation policy and clients will be required to enter a credit card when they book.

Ratings and Reviews
Beyond Useful (Only Used for Natural Hair)
I really struggle going to a new town and finding hairstylists for natural hair. Especially in smaller, less diversified places. My best shot was to go to bigger cities which is too much of a drive. This app has helped me find hidden gem stylists that were practically down the street, and even going out of town, I can book a stylist before I get there, but is close to my destination! This has been a game changer. Please be aware that it is still a struggle to find natural stylists that aren’t far away, and the app is not perfect when it comes to categorizing stylists. I have also had issues where I decide to pay in cash, I turn off the autopay function then end up getting double charged. A bug I hope they fix without stylist intervention. I get uncomfortable leaving without paying since the app charges after the appointment is over, but the autopay works XD! Fortunately the stylists have been understanding, but it is definitely something to keep your eye on. I can appreciate the respect and protections that the app gives stylists. I also greatly appreciate how it puts them on the map, particularly in the natural hair industry, where they are already hard to find.
Not Business Friendly
I have been using StyleSeat for eight years!! The honeymoon years were great when there was no monthly fee and my clients weren’t charged to booked. After the monthly fee for stylists was set everything about the quality seemed to change. My issue isn’t the monthly fee but it seemed to give StyleSeat a false sense of permission to control my appointments. I’m aware that there is a commission based type booking option but why would I pay StyleSeat for the work I do. Especially if I’m not getting business friendly performance from it. I’ve tried adjusting the premium pricing but it keeps resurfacing. I’ve turned off the auto-checkout and my clients have also but it is still set when my clients book. And it can’t be removed. I don’t accept normally payments thru StyleSeat because there’s another 3% fee on top of the monthly fee I pay and the $1 for booking that my clients pay. But the auto-checkout forces me to accept payment thru StyleSeat and receive a payout minus their cut. And at least 5 times out of the week I try to access my calendar and I literally get a blank screen for extended periods of time. Sometimes i cannot even tell my client what their total is because I’m looking at a blank white screen! I’ve tried resetting the app and I even bought a new phone. I’m at my wits end and ready to switch to another booking application. This app slows me down in checking out clients and it makes me look unprofessional and unorganized in front of my clients.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, first and foremost, I want to thank you for being a long-time StyleSeat Professional we appreciate it more than you know! We also appreciate your feedback. Our community's input is vital to our ability to develop a product that ultimately makes your life easier.
We always aim to provide a smooth booking experience for your clients from reminders to re-book, to paying for their appointment in just a few taps. To run your business effectively and cover operational costs such as marketing, a recommendations engine, and a payments platform, we've applied this booking fee. There are many more exciting features for your clients in the pipeline.
Automatic checkout provides a quick, safe, and easy way to check out your clients. Automatic checkout is a requirement for some of our growth features that help you earn more revenue and build your clientele. If you chose to opt out entirely you may miss out on the benefits of these features. We would love to help. I member of our Success Team will be in touch with you shortly to help troubleshoot any issues you are having. Thanks so much.
I have been using this app for at least 6+ years. In the beginning clients along with myself loved the app! It was so user friendly and helped out a lot. As the years have gone by- especially once they started charging a high monthly fee of $35- the glitches started and constant updating. Now they have a feature where clients HAVE to put in a credit card in order to book. In the past this was always an option and the stylist had control to keep it on or not. I am finding this very frustrating & clients cards are getting "auto checked out" when they have always been cash & check customers. With the amount of data breaches I don't blame anyone for not wanting to store their card in a system. The app is constantly changing and it's difficult for myself and clients to keep up with. I never know the exact protocol. Also, it's near impossible to get a sincere response from their customer service. There still is no customer service phone number listed anywhere- simply email. When I do send emails most the time I get an auto response back and very generic directions or steps forward. This is especially frustrating dealing with payments. If you asked me 4 years ago how I like this app I would have had nothing but great things to say! Moving forward now I'm hoping to find something more reliable and hopefully not so expensive. Look else where before you sign up for styleseat
