Pros

The customer service reps, however, are generally pretty awesome and committed to resolving the issues.

AS

Amy S.

It is easy to learn and all the instructors find it simple and easy as well to use and learn. Vagaro customer service is excellent and super helpful and quick.

MP

Mari P.

This has been the first program that I used to start my business with, and it is super user friendly for any beginner business owner and current to keep track on your progress.

TC

Tiffany C.

Pros

It has a lot of important features that will help a salon ease out their operations. The most likable is that it eliminates the overlapping of appointments or double booking error.

NM

Nikita M.

The superb integration Hairscouts needs and the user interface functionality.

HS

Hari S.

Easy to use And more over after sales service was really impressive.

VR

Vishal R.

Cons

I had some trouble refreshing the page and getting linked to another site. There was a lot of advertisement for other companies, so I also got distracted at times.

AT

Amanda T.

Needs Apple Pay support desperately, especially in this era of COVID-19, this is a glaring omission.

DR

Derek R.

Switched to Vagaro from Booker and I hate it but I’m trapped.

TT

Tabitha T.

Cons

It's hard to come up with cons because the Salonist software is constantly being upgraded and updated.

SR

Starr R.

Actually really i have no points as your cons.
