The in-built booking system will ensure the whole process – from searching styles to payment – is streamlined, making black hair maintenance simple, effortless and fast – around the clock.
Finding a hair stylist when you have afro hair can be tricky. It depends where you live. There are certain pockets of London and other major cities that have black hairdressers on every corner, and loads of places to buy products, but there’s little way of knowing the quality and professionality of these services. Alternatively, in the majority of the UK, more rural areas, and even in large parts of the capital – resources are few and far between.
For these people, finding an appropriate hair stylist is a long and tiresome process, often involving hours of scouring the internet to find suitable stylists and ultimately travelling for hours to different cities across the country to switch up their style. It’s alienating to know that mainstream commercialism doesn’t care about the needs of black women.
Currently, on platforms such as Treatwell, Afro hair comes under one simplistic tag – “Afro hair dressing” providing misleading search results whereby stylists can’t accommodate particular afro hair types, confusion over which specific hairstyles and services are on offer, and sub par services and/or closed shops. Ultimately, search based booking services are largely inaccessible for those with afro hair making finding a quality hairdresser is often a laborious, tiresome and disjointed process.
Inama Hair aims to make this easier. Giving consumers more choice, helping them make an informed decision, and allowing them to book whenever they want. Inama Hair is an online, community focused platform linking women with coily, curly and kinky hair to quality hairdressers in their local area to meet their unique hair care needs. As Afro hair is incredibly varied and unique, Inama Hair is dedicated to capturing this diversity. Inama Hair affords users the unique freedom to search and filter by multiple unique entries such as hair type (3A, 4C, 3B etc.), hair style, location and cost, with each search return personalised and tailored to suit each individual’s specific hair care needs.
The in-built booking system ensures the whole process – from searching styles to payment – is streamlined. Making Black hair simple, effortless and fast – around the clock.
Afro hair is not a one size fits all. It’s the unique nature of being able to search according to hair type which makes our platform stand out. By creating a carefully curated list of suitable vendors, consumers are not only provided a streamlined service from discovery to payment, but the comfort of knowing their individual hair care needs are catered to.
Inama Hair allows users to leave detailed, starred reviews on the places they visit — and even encourages them to do so through discount vouchers — which helps to get the more off-the-radar venues on the map and give users the confidence that they’re booking a quality service.
Inama Hair exists to support and grow UK’s lucrative afro hair and beauty industry, with a mission to put the power back into the hands of the community, and to create new opportunities for women to work and thrive.
