Good news for local fashionists and hairstylists, we have a nice hairstyling platform to recommend: Hairbobo.

Background information first: according to China’s Beauty Salon Industry Association, there are about 1.23million hair salons, 5.2million employees and the market scale reaches RMB 200billion annually in China.

Hairbobo launched its mobile version in late 2011 and currently has 100,000 registered hairstylist users including some well-known fashion experts. “The whole hair salon industry now still lacks standards. Most hairstylists spend too much time selling the membership cards to their customers rather than on their styling techniques. We want to change this situation by providing an open platform where customers can rate and review the hairstyling service. We believe in this way we can also help the industry,” said Shi Langrui, founder of Hairbobo (source in Chinese).
