Learning the Ropes
Once a tech is brought on board, the company typically provides training for using
the app and responding to job requests.
"Each stylist sets her own schedule on
the backend system," says Cara Santana,
cofounder of The Glam App in Los Angeles.
"During their hours of operation, the stylist
will be notified of all incoming appointments, at which point they can log into their
portal and choose which ones they would
like to accept." Techs say the process is
easy. "The app does all the work for me,"
says Yazid. "Joiful markets, books and

agrees: "It's quick, easy
and convenient. When I'm

offer complimentary technical and business
training. "We bring in professional educators
who teach the latest tips, tricks and trends
in classes that would normally cost our
artists hundreds of dollars," says Dassios.
"We also teach them soft skills on how to be
professional and present themselves in the
best way so they can grow their freelance
business." Techs say theses educational
offerings are an added incentive to sign on.
"The Glam App has frequent trainings, offering great insight on how to run a business
more effectively," says Clovis of the biannual
educational program, The Glam App Academy. Similarly, when Yazid joined Joiful, she
received a library of videos and a calendar of
events and webinars for additional training.
"I watched the first webinar and it was really
fun," she says.

Doing the Job
Servicing clients in their homes or offices
will obviously call for a different setup than
working in a salon, but most techs have no
trouble adapting. "They simply make sure
that the client has a table or flat surface
and ask for good lighting," says Dassios.
"A lot of times, with corporate clients at
companies, they'll use a small conference
room." Clovis generally lets the client decide where the service will be performed.
"It's all about making them feel as comfortable as possible," she explains. Law
agrees that it's best to let the client dictate
the treatment location. "It could be in the
living room, bedroom or patio," he says.
While some companies require that
techs have a full kit ready to go, others
offer products and supplies to their beauty
pros. For instance, Joiful has partnered
with Dazzle Dry to provide full mobile kits.
Yazid generally brings about 15 color
choices, along with scrubs, oils, towels
and all her tools. "O
"Our kits are packaged as
one-time use for san
sanitation and portability,"
she notes.
Most of the app companies don't
require a uniform; th
they simply ask that
techs dress in simp

Getting the Gig
Although many beauty-on-demand apps are
eager to add more techs to their teams, as
with any other job, there is usually a comprehensive screening and hiring process.
To begin, techs typically fill out an online
application and upload their cosmetology
license. After that, they'll often have a video
or phone interview, followed by a technical
interview-either online or in person-where
they demonstrate their skills. In some cases,
showing a portfolio with their work may be
all that's required.
Most app companies also perform a
background check and recommend that
techs have their own insurance. "As an
independent contractor, a mobile manicurist is not required to have insurance, but
we do recommend that everyone protects
themselves," says Chad Law, vice president
of sales and marketing for Joiful. "If a mobile
manicurist needs help securing coverage we
can certainly help them find an affordable
option that meets their needs."
