Ready to make the most out of your Booksy account and Get Discovered? Well, this February is the time to create your perfect Booksy profile and enter it to win. In three separate competitions, we will be searching for the best business profiles in the following categories: barbers, hairstylists, and brow & lash artists.

Four of our Booksy Ambassadors will be judging three individual competitions. Those judges will be none other than Barber AROD for barbers, Kim Kimble and Alfredo Lewis for hairstylists, and Yessi for brow & lash artists.

This two-week competition is designed to help bring more attention to the business profiles on the Booksy Marketplace. And aside from getting discovered by industry leaders, the top profiles in each competition will also win cash prizes, including a first prize of $1,000!

These three competitions are only open to barbers, hairstylists, or brow & lash artists who use Booksy and live within the United States. But if you’re not a current Booksy Biz user, that’s not a problem! To start using Booksy, click the appropriate competition site. Then select the "Create Your Free Profile!" button to start a 14-day free trial between February 14, 2002 to February 27, 2022.

Improve Your Photos

To make sure your barbershop or salon gets all the right kind of attention, here's a few tips on taking quality photos:

  1. Invest in lighting: two lights are ideal, but if you’re using one light, consider a ring light.
  2. Use backlight to highlight the color, shape, and hair texture of the client in the picture.
  3. Take advantage of natural light but avoid direct, blaring sunlight.
  4. Position your camera from different angles then choose the most flattering image.
  5. Only feature your best photos, since poor images can take away from your reputation.
  6. Pay attention to the background by tidying your work space to minimize clutter.
  7. Avoid using too much photoshop, which can make a photo look unrealistic.
  8. Consider hiring a professional photographer to best feature your work and workspace.
  9. Buy a quality camera to take the best pictures that will make your work standout.
  10. Keep practicing with your camera to learn to take the best photos.
