  1. Showcase their current Price list, and pictures of their best work,

  1. Promote their services on the Zuri Platform and on Social media, and

  1. Have access to their daily, weekly and monthly sales record.

Our mission at Zuri is to find and work with the best Beauty Professionals, owners of Salons, Spas, or Gyms all around Africa, and to help them to build an online beauty brand.
