MISSION STATEMENTCreate a trusted review platform where Stylists and Consumers can connect to build long term client relationships that are beneficial to both parties.
HOW HAIRMINGO BEGAN
Hairmingo was founded by a local businesswoman who during a conversation with her stylist heard about a unique struggle within the salon industry. As a business owner herself, she felt compelled to help find a solution. Back at home, the research began and she uncovered several factors that were weighing down this industry. Appointments were made to interview salon owners and stylist on their struggles and the needs of the industry in general. Amazingly enough, there were many similarities expressed through their insights. The majority stated that they were all getting held back by unprotected review sites. Fraudulent reviews were posted on sites and the stylist themselves did not have the opportunity to dispute or remove them. Some sites asked for a fee to remove the fraudulent review but even then the review was not taken down. In a business that is primarily client driven by referrals, this posed a major problem. On top of that, the stylist did not have a good way to get connected with their desired audience. This made building a business with repeat customers very difficult. The consumers also were frustrated trying a find a stylist that is a good fit for their needs and wants.
The solution was found by launching a validated review site that connects consumers to a stylist that they choose using a simple system that defines each stylist individually for a true compatibility match. A high level of transparency, fairness and demand for honesty will provide consumer safety and trust along with a revolutionary way for the stylist and consumers to connect. The value is found in creating long term relationships which are a win-win for everyone.
To give good service you must add something that cannot be bought or measured with money, that is sincerity and integrity.
HOW ARE REVIEWS CONTROLLED AND VALIDATED?
We run a no tolerance policy at Hairmingo. We do not condone purposely made fraudulent reviews or falsified information from any user. If a member or consumer suspect fraudulent information is listed they may contact our dispute department. An investigation will be done and will bring a non-negotiable verdict to the dispute. If the review is deemed authentic it will stay on the site regardless if it is positive or negative. If it is deemed fraudulent the review will promptly be removed from all platforms and the member/user who posted it will lose the opportunity to have an account with Hairmingo.
