Introducing piiq, a device that is about to revolutionise the hair salon experience
Welcome to the salon of the future…welcome to piiq, the world’s first in-salon digital mirror with embedded
technology proven to take your hairdressing experience to a whole new level.
Have you ever walked out of the hair salon feeling irritated with a haircut that’s too short, or perhaps the wrong shade of colour? We’ve all been there! piiq was developed as the solution to a hassle-free salon experience meaning you’ll get the style you want every time with no more awkward encounters.
A world first (patent pending), piiq will deliver a revolutionary consultation experience across hair salons Australia-wide. With piiq, you’ll be able to find your celebrity hair match with its facial recognition technology, select the very best products for your hair type and style and share your fabulous new look instantly on social media.

Co-founder and four times winner of the Australian Session Stylist of the Year, Richard Kavanagh comments “We found that 95% of stylist believe they do a full and thorough consultation with each and every client while 7% of clients feel they have only ever experienced a thorough consultation once*. It’s apparent that there’s a real disconnect for the client experience at hair salon, mostly leaving the customer
feeling dissatisfied with the hair consultation process.” With the introduction of piiq, the founders, Richard Kavanagh, Richard Matthewman and David Mannah solve one of the biggest problems throughout the salon world today – how to offer every single client the ultimate consultation experience.
The unlikely partnership (Richard Matthewman is ex Global Apps Product Marketing Manager for Telstra) has meant Kavanagh and Matthewman have been able to develop a futuristic device that embraces new technology to enhance the salon experience for clients and stylists alike. Bringing together over two decades of experience from the highest level of hairdressing and IT industries, one without the other wouldn’t have been able to bring you the technological advances found within piiq.

HOW IT WORKS:
Here’s a brief-snapshot of the in-salon piiq experience:
You’ll sign into the piiq App when you arrive for your appointment – remember that your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, and none of your personal info will ever be shared without your consent.
The next step is piiq and your stylist getting to know you with a quick, interactive visual lifestyle quiz, which will help your stylist understand your personal style, aesthetic, hair history and styling habits. If you want to – and we know you’re going to want to - you can share a snapshot of your lifestyle profile instantly with your friends on social media at the tap of a button. Next step is for piiq to go to work with its ground breaking 120-point facial recognition technology, which will give you an instant face shape and eye colour analysis and will also match you with five celebrities who share the same features. You can then explore your chosen celeb’s latest hairstyles to use as inspiration in deciding on your new do’. Your hair stylist will be on hand to talk through the different hair styles with you. So, now you and your stylist know all there is to know, and your new look is underway – you’ll soon be prompted by piiq to ask your stylist about the ultimate haircare regime for your hair type, or what styling products you should be using at home to maintain your new style. Your stylist will make their recommendation based on your hair’s needs today and will hand you their suggestions on piiq’s specially-designed, hand-held tablet. You can then read all about the recommended products, and if you’d like to purchase, you can choose to collect the products on your way out or have them shipped to your home. You’ll now be coming to the end of your piiq experience and your stylist will be ready to take a 360-degree capture of your new finished look, which will be stored alongside your records ready for your next salon visit. Oh, and while you’re sitting there looking your best with piiq’s enhanced beauty lighting, you might as well grab another quick selfie and share your new do’ with the world…
