However, not all booking apps or salon software solutions are the same. Every now and then, something truly innovative, imaginative and game-changing emerges that redefines the market and sets new benchmarks by which all other software providers are measured. Fresha is such an innovation.

Go free with Fresha and stop paying for salon software
As Fresha has developed and grown, co-founder Nick Miller explains why it is free, and why Fresha is urging salon businesses to stop paying for software. “Fresha gives salons and spas free access to innovative software and our business grows as they attract more clients and generate more revenue,” he says.
“Salons and spas should only pay for software when it’s working for them and this partnership philosophy means that we collaborate and grow alongside our partners. This is the Fresha way.”
Salon owner Ursula at Bond Salon, London, is just one voice among many whose businesses have been transformed by Fresha: “Fresha is by far the best experience I’ve had with a salon booking system in 20 years. It’s super user-friendly and intuitive and their no-show and cancellation policy, and text reminders, have ensured we have not had one no-show since we opened a year and a half ago,” she says.
