Imagine being anywhere in Toronto and having a professional make-up artist or hairstylist sent directly to your doorstep, whenever you need them.

With the new Stylu app, you get luxury and convenience. No driving through traffic. No waiting around for an appointment. No need to swipe a credit card.
This innovative app launched earlier this week and was created by Justin Colombo, a beauty industry expert and an award-winning salon owner. Colombo says it was difficult to find affordable salon-quality services that were sent directly to the client. To recognize this void in the market, he decided to combine top-rated experts and convenience at a competitive price point, and created the “on-demand” app.
“We selectively handpick professionals who are required to have years of experience in the beauty industry,” he says.
“Each qualified professional is background-checked, insured and must pass through a rigorous vetting process before joining our network. All Stylu professionals have also been trained and mentored by award-winning beauty artists.
“Stylu would send its experts to your home, office or hotel in as little as two hours.”
The app will allow users to manage appointments, rate service providers and invite friends to get credits towards their next appointment.
On the other end of the spectrum, Colombo says that the app will enable beauty professionals to earn three to four times more per hour than the industry standard.
