I have a new client for business and marketing coaching and design services that I am meeting tomorrow. So, begins the marketing and business management research. She is a stylist and makeup artist looking to create a personal brand and become self-employed after years working for others.

My first order of business is to research potential CRM (customer relationship management) software specific to her industry to ensure she has a system in place when she is ready to launch her brand online and in print. Having a mobile based system that can cover as many aspects of daily business management and promotions for her hair and makeup services is a priority.

I have complied a list of potential CRM and appointment management systems for hair salons and hair stylists that I plan to work through over the next month to compare pricing, features, and user experience.

This isn’t a full list of software, CRM, and appointment setting software for hair salons, however they have the main features we are looking for.

Booker Salon Management Software

Phorest Salon Software

Rosy Salon Software

Salon Iris CRM Software

Super Salon Software

Schedule Salon Software

Watch for updates to this post as I review each salon management system from a daily business and marketing perspective over the next few months.
