Introducing Live Streaming Consultations!
If you haven’t heard of Periscope and Meerkat yet, it’s time to hop on out from under that rock and prepare to be amazed. These brand new live-streaming video apps, which allows users to broadcast a real-time video feed to followers, is taking the social media world by storm. While early adopters are taking full advantage of the app to broadcast their personal day-to-day dealings, the tech-savvy team at McAllister Spa has found a way to harvest the power of Periscope, Meerkat and FaceTime to revolutionize the salon consultation process. We have created an entirely virtual, real-time conversation that captures all that can be seen and heard about your hair, skin and nails.
Our adoption of live-streaming consultations provides our clients the ability to connect directly with a McAllister stylist, nail technician or esthetician on a digital level, whether on the go or from the comfort of their own home to discuss esthetic concerns and style goals, establishing a pre-appointment dialogue to save the client time in the long run. Upon salon arrival, the client will have already conducted their initial discussion and can begin working with the stylist immediately.
In addition to the Periscope’s many features, a user can broadcast their videos publicly or privately within a group. Private group broadcasts can conveniently double as a group consultation for customers. Have a wedding coming up this summer? Your bridal party can digitally partake in a consultation to find a hairstyle that best fits the group from anywhere in the world.
The integration of business and technology has proven to be the new normal in most industries, although salons and spas have only use many innovations to a certain extent, until now. At the forefront of the spa-tech movement, McAllister is the first salon in South Florida salon to implement this innovative broadcast service and will begin offering virtual Periscope, Meerkat and/or Facetime consultations beginning June 1, 2015.

More than a decade ago, William McAllister hatched an idea to disrupt the beauty salon industry in Miami Beach. He contemplated what salons once were in years gone by. He yearned to recapture their unique contributions to both personal beauty & community. In the past 10 years, he’s forever changed the industry, and according to him, he’s just getting started! He draws from a unique background – encompassing everything from neurophysiology, business to firefighting- and built South Beach’s busiest & most reviewed beauty concept in South Florida.
