A new online discount service brings VIP deals to Black hair salon-goers.
Have you ever wanted to make a hair appointment at one of your city’s most exclusive salons but Bank of America or Chase just weren't feeling your plans? What if there was a service that offered deep discounts for hairstyling services at the best salons around town? Well, believe it, ladies, because it’s true!
The Fly Cut is a new online deal site that gives salon-goers the chance to experience 5-star styling at leading salons without breaking the bank. Launching in April 2012, the site has already gained a reputation as the Black girl’s Groupon for hair. Tia Williams, who founded the site with her two sisters, Devon and Lauren, says that this one-of-a-kind concept is sure to change the game for Black women and our devout hair salon habits.
“We’ve never had something that’s just for us,” Williams told ESSENCE.com exclusively. “The Fly Cut is a one-stop-shop where women with ethnic hair can get exclusive services at the best Black salons ever.”
Williams says what makes the service so unique is that average, everyday women will be able to indulge in a luxury experience without paying full price.
“It’s really exciting to have all of this access where you didn’t have it before. At some of these salons, it’s almost impossible to even get an appointment,” said Williams.
For The Fly Cut’s launch, the Williams sisters are testing the waters with VIP salons in New York City – Miss Jessie’s, the swank Soho salon for curly girls will be one of the first offers – but are putting aggressive plans in place to expand to other markets.
“By the end of 2012, we’ll be in Atlanta, DC, Los Angeles and Houston," confirms Williams. “By spring 2013, we’re planning to be in 15 cities.”
