Mobile app for the beauty industry
Client: Service UP - a Ukrainian company with the mission to streamline the communication between beauty services professionals and their clients with the help of the convenient mobile app.
Need: To build a Flutter hybrid mobile app that contains of two component: a one app for beauty salons, and the other one is for their clients.
Challenge: Though we used a hybrid approach while building ServiceUP, the client expected native performance. Booking process automation and two app components’ interconnection were among the other challenges.
Solution: Our team has experience with the newly appeared hybrid framework that is already considered the best one. It allowed us to create two apps that have simple UI and perform just like the native solutions.
Impact: Just one week after the initial release showed us that we’ve been moving in the right direction as up to 300 meetings were booked through the app and 14 salons have alerady registered in ServiceUP to bring their services to the next level.
What is ServiceUP?
ServiceUP is a mobile application designed to simplify the work of beauty service professionals and make the services more accessible for the customers. ServiceUP streamlines the booking and search process by giving the client all information about services and available time slots in one convenient app.
Salons and beauty service catalog
Every provider has a business profile that includes the list of services, professionals, pricing, opening hours and contact details.
This feature allows clients to browse services and book visits without the salon's staff assistance.
The perfect tool for reducing staff workload. There is no need to spend time on calls. Visits requests can be accepted with one tap and automatically added to the schedule.
This feature assigns visits for available time slots, helps to avoid overlays and arranges beauty professionals’ schedules in advance.

We designed the logo specifically to represent the apps’ appeal to beauty services enthusiasts. We achieved this through leveraging round font and a subtle accent on “elevation” and “decoration” concepts.
The app design contains blue color scheme of various tones, shades and tints. It allows designers to create a unified look and make a good user impact. Moreover, blue is a classic option to combine with other colors that appear on each salon’s logo, images, etc.
