Zappzi strives to inspire moments of joy and happiness by sharing local services and bringing communities closer together. Zappzi is on a mission to help people look and feel great and revolutionise the hairdressing industry one booking at a time and make it ‘normal’ for hairstylists to travel to customers.
Inspiration for Zappzi
Some comments from our founder Clint Ratanatray:
“Inspiration for Zappzi began one day when I was looking scruffy having not had my hair cut for about 6 weeks and I was due to go on a date with my wife in the evening, I had intended to get my haircut for days however every time I walked past my usual barber he was full and I was in a rush, so I just kept leaving it. My wife had said to me in the morning ‘you better sort your hair out before we head out tonight’, so on the way home I thought to myself wouldn’t it be great if I could book a hairdresser to come to my house and cut my hair before we went out for dinner? I searched the internet and could not find any mobile hairdressers who could help, especially at such short notice. Luckily… I had a hat!”
