Absolute game changer!

The transition over to Unwritten has been so seamless and the free app is so easy to navigate. They seem to really understand what we as independent hairdressers truly need to run our business. I especially love the weekly reports emailed through, saves so much admin time!! Once the online booking goes live in a couple of weeks it’s going to be the app of all apps!

The best choice I’ve made joining unwritten!

Unwritten has made running my business so much easier and efficient with the unwritten app. It has allowed me to be organised, keep clients happy getting there products to them on time, connect with like minded Indy hairdressers and enhance my brand professionally. Running a home salon, working on photoshoots/weddings/freelancing can become stressful but unwritten has made this all do able with their easy to use booking system and ordering stock for clients while I’m on the road.

Finally an app that is made for me…

Finally an app that is made for me the individual hairstylist!
I can adapt to suit my needs, it reminds my clients and keeps records and sends out product.
What more does an indie need!

Your questions, answered

Is the App just for hairdressers?
Unwritten was created and designed to be the best free app for independent hairdressers, yes. When you download the App and enter your details, your profile will be reviewed by our team to verify that you’re a qualified professional hairdresser.
That being said, we love a multi-tasker. For example, if you’re a hair and make-up artist, go for gold!
How much does the App cost?
This is awkward. Kidding! The App is 100% FREE to download and use. Why? Because we’re business people too, and we know that ‘another damn subscription’ is a giant pain in the behind, so we decided to do things differently. It’s the Unwritten Haircare that helps us and you generate income, not the tech.

The only financial outlay for you will be if you opt for SMS appointment reminders for 9c each, and standard transaction fees charged at 1.75% + 30c per transaction as set down by Stripe (our chosen payment gateway).

Do I have to use both the App and the Haircare, or can I choose one or the other?
We bet the reason you became an Indie was because of the flexibility… are we right, or are we right? The Unwritten ecosystem was designed to celebrate this; we’ll never enforce an all or nothing rule.

You could use the App as your business management tool, and continue on your merry way ordering back basin and retail as you do now. Maybe you just want to manage your appointments in Unwritten and use an alternative point of sale.

Perhaps you love your salon software and you’re just here for the side hustle of set-and-forget commission. Great! Open your online shop front, share your unique link and you’re in business. People who purchase the product through your link will generate commission for you, and it’s paid every week.

It’s all up to you!

And of course, you could go in deeeeeeep and completely nerd out on Unwritten. Using the whole ecosystem to its full potential puts you in the best position to get your hands on an easier life and more money.

But those are just a few ways you can make Unwritten work for you! Actually, we’re excited to see just how many genius ways our Indies find to use the ecosystem for their business growth and success. Bring it!

How does the commission work?
When you join Unwritten, you’ll be given your own unique online shop link. When customers, followers, friends and family purchase Unwritten products through this link, you’ll get a commission from every sale.

But wait, get this. The tech is SO super nerdy, that when someone purchases directly from you or your unique link once, the system automatically recognises them as your customer when they log in to the Unwritten online shop to buy again. They don’t even need to use your unique link! And to encourage them to log in for every future purchase instead of checking out as a guest, we’ll give them a discount on their products when they do.

So, that commission ?

We know what you REALLY want to know is “how much commission do I get?”. Keep in mind, a huuuuuuge part of Unwritten is about helping you earn passive income, so trust us when we say the commission rates are industry-leading (i.e. ah-mazing!).

Make sure you get early access here so you can view the commission table in the App as soon as it arrives.

Btw – your phone will be buzzing every time you make a sale! Yep, you’ll be able to track your commission in real time via your dashboard in the App, and the best bit is, we pay it to you weekly, so you’ll always have funds for Friday Happy Hour. Cheers to that!

Is the Unwritten Haircare sold through other online or retail stores?

Negative. No. Nae. Nein. Non. Unwritten Professional Haircare can only be purchased through the Unwritten ecosystem. That means either through a verified professional Indie or on our direct to consumer online store – even then, whenever someone purchases a product, an Indie somewhere receives a commission for that sale. So you see, Unwritten haircare is 100% professional, 100% of the time.

How do I get started?

It’s super easy. Get early access here first and we’ll let you know when the App is ready for download. When you get the message, just follow the prompts to get set up… it’ll take you less than 15 minutes, seriously!

Who’s behind Unwritten?

Unwritten is the brainchild of two Aussie business dudes with one bloody great idea – an idea that would empower a growing legion of unsung heroes, embrace the exiled, muscle up the underdogs… champion the Indies!
