We conduct background checks on all stylists and ensure they have experience at top salons in the Chicagoland area in addition to providing GetBetty specific training.

I downloaded the app but there were no stylists near my location—what do I do?
We are currently recruiting more stylists and hope to be in your area soon. Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know where you are and we will get to work!
How do I get ready for my Betty appointment?
For blowouts, wash your hair prior to your appointment and have a place to sit near an electrical outlet so we can plug in our hairdryers. Our stylists come armed with tools and products but if you have a specific product you love, be sure to have it with you so we can use it. Also, let your stylist know if you have any allergies or special concerns so we can address them.

How much should I tip my Betty professional?
