How to setup a salon booking system

Setting up your new salon is an exciting time and comes with some challenges and opportunities ahead. One of those challenges is setting up a salon booking system but with this overview we hope to show you just how easy it actually is.

Get a salon website

The first thing we recommend when starting a salon is building a website. Often this can feel intimidating with the many options available to you. The Start Booking team highly recommends that you use WordPress for your salon website because its flexible, powerful and WordPress has a seamless integration with the Start Booking software.

If you already have a WordPress website, we recommend reading our knowledge base article that walks you through how to setup booking for WordPress. If you have a website on another platform don't worry, contact our support team today to see what options are available to you.

Get a salon booking software

Now that you have a website, the next step towards a salon booking system is setting up your salon scheduling software. Just like websites, there are many scheduling softwares available in the market. You could spend months testing the different salon booking systems but please don't waste your time or money. That's exactly why we built Start Booking!

Don't just take our word for it though, what makes the Start Booking software different is that it's tailored to how salon's operate. We have tested the booking system with many salons to best identify whats important when running a salon. 

  • Online booking and scheduling
  • Manage customers in one central location
  • Custom salon service management tools
  • Detailed reporting to better understand what's impacting your salon
  • Ability to block specific salon rooms or chairs for booking
  • And much more!
