Wahanda is the biggest online spa, beauty and salon booking website in Europe and has become a classic start-up success story. The London-based company was founded in 2008 by Lopo Champalimaud and Salim Mitha – veterans of lastminute.com and Yahoo! respectively – and it quickly became the biggest online beauty booking provider in the UK.

Wahanda’s concept is simple: beauty salons, hair salons and spas can sign up at wahanda.com, listing their business address, treatment menu and other information online. The salon listings are structured in categories – Hair, Hair Removal, Massage, Nails, Face, Body and Spa Days & Breaks – and customers can search for a salon according to region, city or neighbourhood.
