The reception on Launch night
On the 9th October, I was invited along to attend the launch of the ‘Style Your Hair’ App at a boutique salon on Brisbane street, Perth called Chilli Couture. Chilli Couture is born from the entrepreneurial spirit of two women, Rachel Walker and Emmanuelle Torres. This is a ‘one of a kind’ salon that specialises in hair styling & colouring, various beauty services, hair extensions and eye lash extensions. The salon opened the doors approximately 14 months ago and has built a loyal following of 1000+ likers on their Facebook Page.

This regards them as an award winning salon who value their customers’ needs by providing a professional and personalised service to each client.
I must admit…I’m clueless when it comes to hair styling, but do appreciate a great salon service! There is nothing like leaving a hair appointment, feeling refreshed, recharged and filled with ‘ready to take on the world’ confidence! However I don’t always have the time or money to make it down to the salon, therefore I am willing to give DIY hair styling a go.
A live demonstration on how to use the app
Cue in the newest app that is available for download on Android and soon to be released on Apple - 'Style Your Hair'. It is an app created by the Directors Rachel and Emmanuelle, who decided to develop an app to assist the DIYers of the world on how to turn boring, neglected locks into fashionable dos in the comfort of their own home.
The inspiration behind this project came about when the founders noticed a lack of clear instructive videos on Youtube, with amateur videography making it difficult for the curious fashionista to follow. It was their heartfelt mission to help the hairy helpless!
Guests on the night received the app for free, I was overly excited to play with it. Let the education begin!
The app consists of easy to follow, professionally produced, video tutorials narrated by Rachel herself, that takes the user through a step-by-step process of how to create a certain hairstyle. ‘Style Your Hair’ app features:
