We are running out of phrases to decide what to call this time period in our lives. Needless to say, it’s an adjustment amongst many other things. As we adjust to this lifestyle in order to keep ourselves and our neighbors safe, we may find that some things in our daily beauty and wellness routines are falling to the wayside. Small businesses in the beauty industry and all industries are taking hard hits, having to temporarily close and take their skills to their social networks. As beauty at home becomes our new reality, we’re discovering new ways to connect beauty professionals and their clients. Check out the cool and creative offerings we are seeing from Booksy beauty professionals everywhere! For business owners and service providers, check out our newest Online Service opportunity at the bottom of the article!

Connecting with Beauty in a New Way: Booksy Online Services
While every service can’t be given online, there are certainly some that can be continued through the digital world. Fitness classes, tutors, dieticians and more can now take their skills to the screen. With Booksy’s Online Services, clients can book with their service providers just like they used to! When that happens, both parties get a Zoom link they can click into at the scheduled appointment time. Service providers can continue to connect with clients and make money, while the clients can add appointments back into their daily at-home routines. Boundaries are also expanded on both ends, as servicing online has no location limitations. Booksy’s Online Services are just another way the world is coming together in the face of crisis.
This time has us feeling limited, but forces us to push boundaries, get creative, and be there for others. These beauty professionals are taking this downtime to learn something new so they can come back stronger than before. They are tending to their clients without being physically with them. In a time of much dismay, we sure are feeling inspired by this. If you’re a beauty professional who’s turning to the digital side during this time in our world, direct message us at @booksybiz on Instagram. If you’re a client taking tips from your beauty professional, let us know about it on @booksyus. Stay healthy!
