What Makes Us Better

About Us

When your business operations can safely rely on software that takes your specific needs into account, it’s truly a beautiful thing. And ironically, that’s where it all started… with beauty… or the beauty industry to be more specific.

Established in 2000, HeadStart set out to develop and design salon software that would perfectly cater to the business needs of the South African Hair and Beauty salon industry. From small beginnings, we grew a brand and a partnership that the salons who make use of our software, have come to trust explicitly. A lot of that has to do with the ability of our dedicated team to work closely with their business in identifying exactly where their needs lie and to provide the necessary training for the effective implementation and use of the software.

Now in its 21st year, HeadStart is in the position to not only work even closer with our partners in developing software that stays ahead of the curve, but to actually take our learnings and apply it to software development for a variety of other business categories, helping them achieve a HeadStart in their day-to-day business operations.
