Welcome to Friends of Rosy
An Industry Network Where Our Community Helps Support One Another

Our founder met our industry’s demand for software by addressing the unique workflow of the salon. Using his expertise as a hairdresser and salon owner, he started his own technology company and created software that was as personalized and detailed as a human receptionist. As the company grew, more hairdressers, estheticians, platform artists, receptionists, and former salon owners came on board. They brought with them many years of experience that helped shape Rosy – the software by hairdressers for hairdressers that we know and love today.

We’re excited to carry on our founder’s legacy, and to continue putting the needs of our industry first. That’s why, moving forward, our vision is to create an industry network – a community to help support each other with the same heart and pride for which Rosy was founded.
