StyleSeat Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about StyleSeat's features:

EDUARDO O.

Efficient and functional web system.

2019-11-28

This tool has accompanied me since my business started, when it was a small undertaking because it provided me with automation in the scheduling of appointments, so it helped me to quickly develop an organized and effective way of working, so my customers are very satisfied with the services provided, should not wait long to be served because thanks to the self-service portal can make reservations online according to the schedule of their preference, however the greatest benefit I got with this tool was the visualization of my work through the gallery, which helped me increase my customer base, in addition to digital marketing promotions on different social networks, have helped me to my work as a stylist is recognized.

Pros

An aspect to emphasize of this program is that it offers differences with others available in the market, provides a photo gallery, in which your customers or people who visit your profile, can see part of your work, in addition, has a powerful digital marketing tool that will serve for promotional campaigns, on the other hand, it is very easy to configure and has a configuration wizard and its design is very simple so it facilitates its use.

Cons

Its operation is outstanding, however, I would like the development of a mobile application, as it will facilitate access to this platform.

Not my favorite

2020-04-05

It wasn’t my favorite app I rather use a free app like square and just do my own marketing

Pros

I like that the app allows people to find you and book you for a service. You can also take payments.

Cons

The actually search feature doesn’t make it worth the $35 a month plus service fees for charging through app

No Customer Service Numbers

2019-12-18

Pros

Help organize my schedule. It also helped me stay organized.

Cons

It has no customer service number at all if and when you have a problem. Only email.. that’s not always fast enough to solve a problem.

I love to book my appointments on here!

2019-02-19

Overall, I highly recommend this site especially if you are looking for a new stylist.

Pros

I love how easy it is to find a stylist and see their prices and availability!

Cons

When I first signed up, for some reason it logged me in as a stylist verses customer and could not figure out why I couldn't see calendars correctly.

Looking for a Stylist? Styleseat has plenty of options no matter where you are.

2019-12-30

I have set a handful of appointments through StyleSeat, definitely not a bad experience.

Pros

I like how you can search different location for stylists and hairstyle types.

Cons

Doesn't always work, might be a bug. Need to update hairstyle options for we type in what we are looking for (ex: Kinky Twists, Senegalese Twists, Box Braids)

Style Seat: was a decent service when it was free.

2019-01-02

I see that it’s successful for some beauty professionals and then there’s folks like me where it did nothing for me.

Pros

It was fairly straightforward on set up and the free version (which is no longer) had the features I needed.

Cons

Being a hair stylist, I never obtained any new clients, phone calls or email inquires.

StyleSeat

2019-12-27

I'm glad someone created this software. I can view my hairdresser availability and schedule my own appointments. I love that Styleseat sends friendly reminders of appointments.

Pros

This platform allows you to view the reviews, services, prices, and work of hairdresser near you. Its mobile friendly and sends me my final receipt with the option to tip.

Cons

I wish the services I request to get aligns with the actually services given to ensure I know how much I'm paying ahead of time.

Great Marketing tool

2020-02-04

Style Seat has been the best software for finding me clients. So many people say they found me on style seat!

Pros

I got so many clients from style seat in the first few days of me using it. I noticed, after about a week though, the clients did start to slow down.

Cons

The only thing I really did like was the marketing.

Don't think I'll ever go back to "walk-in" again.

2018-11-13

Pros

I could view a calendar of my barber's availability and select the time I want as far out as I want.

Cons

I'd like it if I could be notified by the app if someone cancelled during a time period I wanted.

Styleseat review

2019-02-01

Pros

Now I only use it as a customer. It’s easy to set up a profile and create a menu.

Cons

I stopped using it when Styleseat started charging stylists to use the software. Didn’t feel like it was worth it at the time.

Pricey

2020-09-24

Overall, initally when I started with Style Seat they were not charging for a basic setup. Now they are and I think $35 a month is a little pricey which is why I went over to 10to8

Pros

Like marketing, spotlighting your business, etc...

Cons

What I like the least is the price. I feel that they are expensive for what they are offering. It should not cost as much as they charging in my personal opinion. Because there is definitely similar software that is still be offered free or cost next to nothing.

Styleseat is great

2020-03-03

I enjoyed the service. I don’t enjoy the fact that people that haven’t received the service are still allowed to review as long as they have booked an appointment. So even if someone’s appointment is canceled they are still allowed to leave a review which led to receiving bad reviews from people that were attacking my business. Ultimately that led me to switch to another platform.

Pros

I love how the customers can leave reviews and the ease of setting up.

Cons

I wish I had more options to add add-ons and additional services instead of me having to create a different package for each option.

Horrible Customer Service/Horrible App

2021-03-17

Pros

It lets you find hairstylists in your area when you're new or the service you need for your hair is scarce. In my case, getting relaxers in Los Angeles is like finding water in the desert. It's incredibly hard to find professional hairstylists who know how to do the service. So within these last few years, I've been depending on Stylseat and it's issue after issue constantly.

Cons

Customer service is atrocious.
