Relocating for college can be hectic -- where to grocery shop, where to work out, where to get an affordable mani-pedi?
StyleSeat.com wants to take away some of that student stress. Type in a city and you find a database of more than 50,000 businesses in all 50 states with suggestions for places to get a haircut and color, manicure, pedicure, body wax and more. People also can research deals in their neighborhood, read reviews and book and manage appointments online.
The number of results varies from city to city. (A search for haircuts in Pittsburgh brought up just a couple of recommendations.) But beauty and wellness professionals can sign up for free to be featured on StyleSeat.com.
The site launched in 2011 and has since grown to encompass more than 10,000 cities and attract support from Founders Fund, actress Sophia Bush, Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary's A-Grade.
