Last-minute beauty appointments & free treatments (for beauty course models) in your town!  Up4Beauty is a portal for beauticians to post their last-minute availabilities and inquiries to find models for beauty courses.Customers can find attractively priced last-minute treatment offers or even free treatments if they participate as a model on a beauty course.  Up4Beauty will launch in Estonia, where currently beauticians use Facebook to find last-minute clients or models. Our solution will increase the probability to find clients by reaching much more clients than individual beauticians currently reach over their Facebook site. Up4Beauty starts with a lean-development of MVP to validate the business model, later monetizing will come from fees that beauticians will pay for each booking over the app.
