The Rock Pamper Scissors website is an absolutely ingenious invention! Like the majority of people in the twenty-first century, I do as much as I possibly can online, from paying bills, corresponding, shopping to booking tickets and appointments, but I find myself getting easily frustrated at the number of businesses who still have yet to offer such online facilities.
Booking appointments online is an easy and time saving process with the added benefits of allowing you to choose a date and time that works around you. This is where Rock Pamper Scissors is in its element because it has designed a concept that allows you to book all of your hair and beauty appointments at the click of a button, at a time and date to suit you.
With a modern but extremely straightforward website, booking an appointment has never been easier. You decide the location and the service you require and the website does the rest for you. The obvious effort that has gone into this website is incredible.
All the information that you need and more is included so when you click on any of the salons you are immediately given a history and background to the business, a list of the stylists that work there, a no-nonsense price list and a services breakdown. There is also the opportunity to search for those salons offering discounts for first time customers, as well as students, along with a dedicated wedding search facility.
The personal photos are what really distinguishes Rock Pamper Scissors, and gives it its uniqueness, because there is a search facility that allows you access the photos of hairstyles on real people, not photoshopped models, and it’s even possible to book an appointment based completely on the cut you like in one of these photos! You can also take pictures of your own style and post them to the relevant salon to show the work you’ve had done, allowing others to see the results for themselves as they make their own choices.
Within just a few seconds, I was able to find the top three best deals in London hairdressers and beauty salons via a simple search:

At the moment you pay for all the services at your selected salon, but the creators are working towards online payments which will make the whole process complete. The only downside is that this service is currently only offered in London, Manchester and Leeds, but it’s only a matter of time before the idea catches on and becomes available nationally. There will then come a point soon where people will wonder how we ever managed without such a service!
