    LifestyleWellnessParlon: A truly Filipino app that revolutionizes wellness and self-care

    Parlon is the ultimate beauty hack for everyone. It’s a platform where you can browse, buy, and book your next beauty and wellness appointment seamlessly. This innovative platform streamlines the booking process, putting the power of pampering right at your fingertips.

    The Parlon app understands the hectic schedule of modern Filipinos. Its user-friendly interface allows you to browse a vast network of partnered salons, spas, and wellness centers across the Philippines. With a few taps, you can filter by location and service type, find exclusive deals, and so much more.

    “I needed a place where I could browse salon services, view their prices, book appointments, and make purchases with ease — similar to the convenience I experience when shopping on e-commerce platforms. With more than 16 million Filipinas aged 20-39, the Philippines was the perfect starting point,” co-founder and CEO of Parlon, Claire Ongcangco, shares.

    Whether it’s a haircut, facial, nail care, massage, or even a wellness retreat, you can find it all on on the app. Some partner merchants include global brands like Browhaus, Strip, and The Smile Bar. Celebrity faves are also on Parlon, such as Benibana Beauty Hub, O2 Skinlab, Marqed Salon, Culture Salon, The Secret Lounge, and even Hiraya Wellness Resort and Ecopark in Pangasinan.

    What we love most about Parlon is that we don’t have to worry about how much we have to pay at the salon. What you buy within the platform is all that you have to pay during your visit. Scheduling is also super easy because Parlon empowers you to schedule appointments directly within the app, ensuring a seamless booking experience.

    If you are not yet sure where to go, Parlon allows you to explore detailed profiles of partner establishments, including photos, service menus, customer reviews, and pricing information. If you want to learn more about each service, the app also has a curated selection of beauty and wellness articles, providing valuable tips and insights to help you make informed decisions about your self-care routine.


    You can also give the gift of self-care, where you can directly send gift codes to other app users from as low as PHP500 up to PHP10,000. You can also be an OG (Original Glowster) member, where you can get exclusive deals and discounts from its lifestyle partners like Love, Bonito, VIU, Konsulta MD, Electric Studio, Edamama, Picasso Hotel, and Kindred, just to name a few.

    “Parlon has always been true to its promise of making beauty and wellness accessible for everyone. Now, with our OG Lifestyle Card, we curate offers that will make our lifestyle more beautiful,” shared Ongcangco.

    Parlon is the fastest-growing salon and wellness tech platform in the Philippines and recently raised over USD400,000 in successful pre-seed funding from WIP Global Ventures, A2D Ventures, and a group of esteemed angel investors.

    “The salon and wellness service industry has long been underserved. This industry is a niche on its own. Often, it has been treated as an additional vertical or category on platforms. This compels the salon and wellness industry to handle tasks manually or adapt to the tools available out there. This beautiful industry deserves a platform that revolves around how it operates. With Parlon, they take the spotlight, and we design and ship features to help them grow, innovate, and make their operations more efficient,” shared Miko Cornejo, co-founder and CTO of Parlon.

    Parlon is also proud to be the first and only Philippine company, so far, to be in partnership with Reserve with Google. This allows users to have an unparalleled booking experience within Google that is fully integrated with Parlon.

    Parlon Singapore has also been launched and is expected to similarly redefine convenience, accessibility, and elevated experiences for both customers and salon professionals in the city-state.

    Parlon is available in the App Store and Google Play.
