When you are on to your 4th blow-dry of the day and juggling hair treatments for late clients around your lunchbreak, recording payments and tracking expenses can seem like that one-step too far chore that you could really just do without at the end of another busy day!
Cue Pocket PA – created exactly to help every self-employed hairdresser take care of their work “admin-stuff’ on the go from their phone, tablet or computer. It’s a powerful web-based app that manages all your clients, appointments, invoicing and accounts and totally takes the stress and overwhelm out of working for yourself and running a busy mobile hairdressing business
And whether you use all the features or just a couple of the amazing benefits that the app offers, you will still be getting yourself super organised and saving precious time and money in the process.
The app is perfect if you are a hairdresser who rents a chair in a beauty salon. It also works really well for any mobile hairstylist who visits clients at home for their cut and blow-dry because there is a directions button which helps you get between all your clients in the fastest possible time. It puts each clients’ address into Google maps or Waze so you can dodge the traffic and spend more time with your clients.
And it works hard as an automated business mileage tracking tool to record all those hard to remember journeys between every clients house you visit, helping you to claim more money each month and increase your profits.
