Giorgia Rossi is the Co-Founder of LookBooker, New York City’s premier hair and beauty appointment aggregator - bringing together customers looking for salon, spa and barbershop appointments with salon owners looking for customers and booking these appointments online - anytime, anywhere. Giorgia founded LookBooker in the Winter of 2014 after spending two years as a management consultant in Australia sick of trying to book a bikini wax, over the phone, during business hours from the middle of an iron ore mine. Coming from a family full of entrepreneurs, she knew that it’s always better to build a solution to a problem rather than just complaining about it. Giorgia launched LookBooker in Singapore in July 2014 (where it is now South East Asia’s number one hair and beauty aggregator) and in New York in December 2014. LookBooker is Giorgia’s first venture.
