At Beautified, we’re building a new way to discover and book beauty. We’re a mobile business that looks at the beauty and wellness space from two unique perspectives: the consumer and the business-operator. We think technology can create new efficiencies for an old-school industry, still very reliant on pen and paper. Beautified launched to a feature in February 2013’s Vogue Magazine, and we’re working to bring the beauty business online, one customer at a time. Join us.
