“Planity Secures $48M in Funding for Revolutionary SaaS Solution for Hair Salons”

Antoine Puymirat
French startup Planity has been taking advantage of France’s love affair with hair salons to launch a SaaS product for these businesses in particular. Over time, the company expanded to other types of beauty salons, such as barbers and nail salons. The startup’s co-founder and CEO Antoine Puymirat first started working on online appointment booking in 2007. Instead of creating an all-encompassing appointment solution, he chose to focus on beauty salons specifically. The platform handles around 10 million bookings per month — 4 million of them are booked directly by the end customers on Planity.
