Every beauty professional has a dream of being their own boss. However, for many, finding a place to work which suits their needs is challenging. House calls can be inconvenient, booth rental is expensive and trying to rent a chair directly at a salon is difficult. ArtistOnGo has helped change all of that by allowing artists to rent a chair at top salons with flexible and affordable pricing.
ArtistOnGo is reimagining the way artists and salons work together. This new platform lets artists control where and when they work. They get to pick everything from the salon they wish to work at, their schedule, and their service prices without having to pay salon commissions. And instead of working for a salon owner, they can work for themselves at a top salon, earning up to three times more income with total flexibility and control over their work.
Independent artists have opted to rent salon chairs long-term with ArtistOnGo via monthly, weekly or even hourly rentals with flexible pricing options. And what’s more, artists can work at one salon or multiple salons to make it easier on themselves and their clients.
What’s in It for salons?
ArtistOnGo says salons owners love this concept because they earn more income with zero additional costs or effort. Plus, ArtistOnGo fills chairs or treatment rooms that would otherwise sit unused. This income for salon owners can be significant, covering up to 50% or more of their monthly rental overhead.
Salon owners also get to meet new, talented artists from their community. Now both artists and salon owners can co-share the salon space and help each other grow financially.
Stylist and colorist Gregory Patterson had this to say of ArtistOnGo: “I was tired of doing house calls, carrying my equipment everywhere and washing client’s hair in their sink. Through ArtistOnGo I get to be my own boss, work everyday in a beautiful salon that I love and am earning twice as much as I used to. It’s like having my own salon but without any of the overhead or administration.”
ArtistOnGo is the brainchild of Dharmendra and Aarti Manwani who have over 30 years of beauty and tech experience between the two of them making them the perfect team to launch a tech startup for artists and salons. Before the two began disrupting the salon industry, they were busy. Dharmendra co-founded and launched Jean Claude Biguine salons in India and the USA (300+ salons worldwide) and Aarti built tech solutions for on-demand marketplaces and complex financial products for leading startups like E-trade, Box and more.
Pat Parenty, former President of L’Oreal, has also joined the team to lead strategic partnerships and brings over 26 years of industry experience to the company.
The team is ready to transform the industry into a community of artists that can rent salons chairs at flexibly and affordably, right from their phones.
The traditional salon model has become outdated, especially post COVID as artists and salons are seeking more flexibility,” says Pat Parenty, former President of L’Oreal “ArtistOnGo has built a modern, easy-to-use platform that not only works better for both salon owners and independent stylists but helps them earn more income. In my view this is changing the industry for the better.”
How It Works
The unique mobile platform helps artists rent a chair from a network of verified premium salons and spas. Artists pick a salon that fits their vibe and book online for however long they need (monthly, weekly, daily or hourly) and there are no contracts. It is a win-win for salon/spa owners and managers who can rent any extra space or chairs to like-minded Artists, earning significant revenue with zero additional cost or effort.
ArtistOnGo is currently available in New York and Miami and is rolling out across other U.S. cities. The way it differs from traditional chair/studio rental is that through ArtistOnGo’s online platform, salons and spas require no long-term commitments, offer more flexibility and artists only pay for the hours they use.
