Troubleshooting

Beautystack - Bring ALL of Beauty Back

Purpose of Story 🤔

When the UK government announced the country would go into lockdown, overnight the beauty industry ground to a halt.

Four months on, the government began to announce plans to reopen the economy, with the beauty industry a glaring omission. As hairdressers, pubs, bars, restaurants, and the like began to reopen, the beauty community was still unable to work.

In response, beauty and wellness booking service Beautystack launched the #BringBeautyBack campaign, asking their community to contribute to a video showing impact that Covid-19 has had on the beauty professional community.

'We wanted to make a video to reassure clients, to show the government that we are COVID-19 secure, and to show the whole industry that we are ready and able to work' explained Sharmadean Reid, Beautystack's founder.

Setting the Story up ✍️

1. Story title

This should be a clear, easy-to-understand summary of the Story.

2. Story introduction video

What’s more authentic than a video message to contributors explaining what they need to do? This is the time to really hammer home what the purpose of the Story is, and get the contributors excited to be a part of it.
