Natural hair is becoming more and more popular as an increasing number of women stop relaxing their hair and embrace their natural beauty. As such, there have been a lot of recent videos, blogs and products that are all for the movement.
Despite the increased interest in natural hair, it has not become much easier to find hair stylists who specialize in natural hair; part of the reason might be that a lot of women still style their own hair, and a lot of stylists don’t exactly advertise themselves that aggressively.
To address this, there have been natural hair apps that show a lot of things from styles to the actual communities of women with natural hair, where they share their styles and give tips.
Even with all these apps, though, there haven’t been any that really address the issue in finding a classy and reputable natural hair stylist. That is, until the launch of the Bantu App.
This is a free app you can get on your iPhone or iPad that helps you find hair stylists near you who can style, weave, twist or braid your curly, kinky*, coily and even relaxed hair.
You can search for the ideal hairdresser by proximity, hair style, rating and even price. You gain access to the email addresses and phone numbers of a lot of hairdressers, so you can call or email them straight from the app.
You can also view their bios, ratings, and photos so you can easily find the hair stylist best suited to you. If you love a particular hairdresser, you can mark them as your favorite and Bantu will automatically tailor your search results so it can show you the hairdressers most relevant to your taste.
Although it’s currently only available on Apple devices, an Android version is currently in development. Bantu is going to be an essential app for every woman who wants the best stylist for her hair.
