When Kate Stott couldn’t find a last-minute nail appointment, she set out on a mission to connect Scottish hair, beauty, nail and spa businesses with those who use their services – all in one place. Since launching the BeautyBooker Apps back in 2019, Kate has unveiled additional platforms to ensure those within the Hair & Beauty Industry in the UK have the appropriate tech tools to help make working life easier. BeautyBooker now boasts a training platform and premises finder for those looking to upskill or find their next working premises.
As well as masterminding these all-encompassing online tools during the pandemic, Kate led 1,700 hair and beauty businesses through the global crisis. The BeautyBooker COVID-19 Support Group Scotland provided much-needed comfort and guidance to industry professionals on topics ranging from business to mental health, whilst Kate personally lobbied those in government power to ensure the hair and beauty sector was on the agenda.
To date BeautyBooker boasts multi award wins with Kate also winning Scottish Businesswoman of the Year & Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year.
