How did Glamplus start?
In 2020, when Divyanshu was at a salon, he was unable to make a decision that what should be his hairstyle, since there was no past data point to back his present decision to have a specifically certain hairstyle, that’s where he thought there is no such user experience software which is providing this kind of 360° view to customers.
Now, when they started deep-diving into the problem, they started interviewing salons where they were astonished to see that everything is managed offline there they have decided to first solve this problem and move to their customers’ centric solutions.
After comprehensive research, they have started Glamplus in the month of Jul 2020, and that’s how this revolutionary product has come into existence.
