Miami Beach-based spa incorporates live-streaming video to consultation process.

The integration of business and technology has proven to be the new normal in most industries, the beauty industry being no exception. At the forefront of the spa-tech movement, McAllister Spa in Miami Beach, FL is finding new, innovative ways to incorporate technology into its day-to-day business with Periscope, a cutting-edge, live-streaming video app that will allow guests to have entirely virtual consultation sessions with the salon's top stylists.

With this technology, McAllister Spa can offer clients the option of receiving a virtual consultation from the comfort of home. Ideal for one-on-one consultations, as well as group consultations such as bridal parties, thanks to the private multi-user option available on Periscope, the service will allow clients to discuss hair concerns and style goals, establishing a pre-appointment dialogue to save the client time in the long run. Upon salon arrival, the client will have already conducted their initial discussion and can begin working with the stylist immediately.
