What is Tress?

Tress is a fun and easy way to share your hairstyle pictures "tressies" with your friends. Take a tressie, upload it on Tress, add information like name of hair-extension or hair product, name and location of salon, and the price range of having that hairstyle done. This information will provide value to your friends, who might be considering trying out your look. We built Tress with a lot of love and consideration, because ladies always have questions about beautiful hairstyles.

How much is your app?

$0.00 - it's a free app

Where does the name come from?

We wanted a word that was unique but was focused on hair. The expression "Love your tresses" was one we used quite often when complimenting our friends' beautiful hairstyles. We settled on Tress because it evoked happiness, love, positivity, beauty and quite frankly because it means braids in French and a lock or strand of hair in English.

How did the idea come about?

We love changing our hairstyles and are always on the lookout for interesting and unique hairstyles. We usually got inspiration from social media and search engines but we always wanted more information about each hairstyle and the chance to ask more. We decide to focus on mobile because most people always have their phones on them and will be able to access the app very easily, in addition to taking pictures and uploading them smoothly on the app.
