Gyld is a new Dutch beauty platform that has just launched, with the premise that it’s a matchmaking service for professional hairdressers, hairstylists and makeup artists. It exists in the so-called “Uber for X” category which involves on-demand services that you can order spontaneously at the push of a button.
So think of Gyld as an Uber for hairstylists, that comes to your house or any other location you prefer – perhaps in an Uber. You can check out their portfolio online and select the stylist that matches your preferences. The hairdressers perform chaircuts, blowouts, updos and all the other good stuff that you can’t do yourself.
I felt so spoiled when the Gyld team came to my former house a few months ago to let me experience their services. Hairstylist Niki quickly unloaded her supplies on my wooden table and heated the curling iron she had brought with her, while we discussed my preferences. I showed her some pictures of hairstyles I liked on my laptop and then we were off. I moved into one of my chairs and Niki began to give me a haircut, followed by a styling session, making my hair look way better than I could ever made it look myself. All in all, I was given somewhat of a mini makeover that took about an hour.
I was delighted with the results that made me feel like a movie star. I love the idea that you can get professional hair services at the push of a button; this could be a dream come true for many women, especially women that are busy at work and don’t have the time to spend hours to go to a salon. I can also imagine that Gyld is perfect for a bachelorette, a sweet sixteen, a typical girls’ night out, or to get red carpet ready with next to no effort. A blow-out takes about 45 minutes, which is extremely time efficient when compared to a regular salon visit.
