Thomas Hope and partner, Kunal Trehan, of the award winning Touched group have launched an exclusive, unique, on-demand hair and beauty app, Artisté.
Manchester born Artisté has been developed to offer a true luxury brand and service to the client with hair and make-up appointments starting at 90 minutes, available within your home, office, event space or hotel, providing a convenient but opulent treatment. Artisté encapsulates the true luxury, exceptional craftsmanship and award-winning service that VIP clientele have come to expect at the renowned Touched group, which includes a luxury hair and beauty salon & the world’s most luxurious interior design store. Thomas and Kunal wanted to offer this service to clients through Artisté but with an affordable price tag and no geographical restraints.
Kunal, 34, and his partner Thomas, 30, felt there was a gap in the market for the highest quality products, stylists and artists to be available for men and women who strive to ooze glamour and perfection.
“Myself and Thomas have a wrath of experience working within the hair, make up and interior design industries alongside international celebrities, VIP’s and influencers. Having seen and perfected the treatment and service these personalities receive, we wanted to replicate this to make it accessible to everyone whilst still using the crème de la crème in stylists and products.” – Kunal Trehan
