Save money on an off-peak haircut, massage or manicure with French app

The service lets you book a cheaper appointment at quieter times – 10,000 salons are signed up

In need of a haircut? 

You could grab a bargain by booking via the French mobile app Kiute, or through its website.

The app allows you to find and make an appointment for a haircut, massage, manicure, or other beauty treatment by taking advantage of the times in the day when business is quieter, for example, in the morning or early afternoon.

Up to 50% off

It is possible to search for deals by entering the date and your location. 

Both men and women could save up to 50% on the price of these services.

Around 10,000 hairdressers, beauty salons and spas are registered with the app in more than 200 towns.

By offering discounts they would not usually offer, businesses hope to attract customers during off-peak times.

Particularly attractive deals can often be found by booking at the last minute.

If your plans change, you can cancel without charge up to 24 hours before your appointment.

Created following the merger of two French start-ups, Kiute is now owned by the American booking service Booksy.

Training school deals

Another way to get a cut-price haircut is to offer your services as a model to trainee hairdressers.

Salons such as Dessange have training centres which are always on the lookout for models, as do other hairdressing academies. 

The downside is these are usually closed at weekends and stylists are less experienced.
