An Open Letter To Independent Hairstylists

close formula

When Stylie was first created, it was to help stylists automate those tiresome, administrative tasks that drain their time and energy, so they can focus on what they love most: making others feel beautiful, confident and treasured. And it was especially designed to help all the independents—the ones craving greater control over their lives and their work—because doing it alone can be tough.


Like everyone else, you have your share of job and life pressures, plus the occasional cuts on your fingers. (Can we get an Amen?!) And yet, you continue to smile, pour out your best and take pleasure in making others feel like a million bucks. That’s admirable.



There’s something deeply empowering about building your own business. Being your own boss is exhilarating, scary, trying and freeing—sometimes all at the same time. Your business is your baby. You want to see it grow, thrive and reap uncommon success. There is a story behind every person you talk to. Some that have been shared with us include: 


  • The mom of six returning to her calling behind the chair;
  • The seasoned educator who, having traveled for years, is now building roots with her family and redefining her career;
  • The stylist who put in years of hard work, including three moves across the country and hundreds of hours of education to master skills now worn by celebrities;
  • The single parent craving greater flexibility and the ability to earn more while doing less… and so many others.


Their feedback blew us away. Baked into each feature and functionality input was a story. A real-life tale of a stylist who, faced with a struggle, took a leap and grabbed control of their work and lifestyle. So here’s to you, the hairstylist who said, “I’ve had it with the salon.” To the hairstylist who said, “I want more flexibility.” To the hairstylist who said, “I want more freedom and control over my life.” To the hairstylist who said, “I want to make more money.” To the hairstylist who said, “I want to choose which brands to use and sell.” To the hairstylist who said, “I want to express creativity on my own terms.” To the hairstylist who said, “I want to make my own rules.”


You’re not in this alone. Stylie understands that their success hinges on yours and they’ll continue to walk alongside you, listening intently to your joys and struggles, and helping to lighten your load and accelerate your success. Wherever your story takes you Stylie promises to be there every step of the way.
