Frustrated at difficulty in finding a new hairdresser to style her Afro hair working with its natural texture, Jade Phillips launched the www.manehookup.com platform. This is a booking system that matches Afro hairstylists and consumers to find a match for their needs. A stylist gets access to a booking tool that promotes their services to reach new clients, while a comprehensive review system enables the consumer to make informed choices about which salon to visit.
