The problem

I think every black lady gets frustrated with the lack of information on hairstyles, we often times resort to walking up to total strangers to enquire about their hairstyle and thats exactly what the tress team wants to curb. With tress you easily access information on type of hair used, how much, where to go etc


Its outstanding features are:

  1. Discover new hairstyle – On tress you are exposed to beautiful and trendy hairstyles daily from the people you follow,
  2. Get detailed hairstyle information – As I mentioned earlier, there’s a whole goldmine of information about every hairstyle posted on tress such as salon name and location, products/ hair extension used, price and what the person think of the hair and the hairstylist. It has different categories of hair on the app – dreadlocks, cornrows, weaves, braids…everything.

  1. Engagement – There’s also a like and comment feature that gives you the opportunity to show your love by liking and saying what you think of the hair. Cool right? You also get to connect with like-minded people to share and obtain knowledge.
  2. Giving Back – The tress team knows and value their users, which is a lot to say especially when some developers could care less about who’s using their app or not, they do occasional promos that seek to reward their users- an example is the TressUpForBae valentine promo of which i’m a proud winner…whoop whoop!
