Unwritten: The New App For Sole Trader Hairdressers

The Unwritten App is launching into the hairdressing market, created to be the world’s first free software and retail platform specifically designed to help sole trader hairdressers grow successful businesses.

The app is looking for independent hairdressers to sign up to test the main Beta release and join the community. Interested? Read on!

The app has been created in Australia for sole traders in the Australian industry with these specific business needs in mind, as created by Australian innovators Rob Aubin and Hayden Brooks. Rob has worked in the industry for more than 20 years on leading salon software and professional haircare brands.

Importantly, the Unwritten app includes a product range. Independent hairdressers can sell these products through the app, and they’ll be remotely sent to clients. The independent hairdressers will earn a commission on every sale of the product regardless of whether they sell it to their client in-person or digitally.

The 2022 Single Operator Survey conducted by the Australian Hairdressing Council illustrated that more than 80 per cent of independent hairdressers say complex admin or not being paid for holiday or sick leave were among the most stressful problems they face in their sole trader business. This was followed by cashflow issues, with the app responding to these industry concerns.

The app and its complementary professional haircare ecosystem will look to increase retail profits for these hairdressers without having to hold stock, and earn income while they take holidays or sick leave. The users can order and sell a range of professional brands (retail or wholesale) without leaving the app and stop paying for software functions they never use. This will cater to an increasing sole trader work force with added infrastructure that supports this independent business model.

“We noticed the huge growth of the ‘indie’ community, but the lack of recognition they’re receiving as serious business professionals,” Rob said. “Not to mention, we could clearly see the challenges that come with being a sole trader in this industry – meeting minimum order quantities and holding stock, building wealth on a single column, managing admin, marketing effectively – yet we couldn’t pinpoint any solutions that were really making a difference in this space.”

The app and ecosystem have been developed over two years, is in the early Beta testing phase and has received rave reviews. The app is looking for independent hairdressers to sign up to test the main Beta release and join the community.
