On April 8, RateMyHair.com was officially released worldwide by internet developer Klamot Global Corporation of Toronto. Klamot Global is best known in Canada for releasing the RateMyGovernment brand, a platform similar to sites such as Rate My Professor, which allows users to critique Canadian politicians and government institutions.
"We realized the potential of developing RateMyHair as a novelty site given current trends in fashion and social media," company President and CEO Ryan Klamot stated in an exclusive interview. "With the rise in popularity of events such as Movember, we live in a world of very diverse tastes in style and fashion where everyone wants to show off their styles and be seen. Fully appreciating and recognizing this, we created a platform which brings these diverse styles together in a public forum and allows users across the globe to interact with each other."
Users can join the site for free and upload photos of their hair to receive feedback on their unique styles from visitors to the site on a scale of 1 to 10. Men are also able to upload photos of their facial hair to be rated. Users have the option of clicking on the "hottie" button to signify their attraction for a particular user, and can even take it a step further by sending each other messages.
Furthermore, the celebrity section of the site gives people the chance to do what they have wanted to for so long; publicly critique the styles of the most famous (and infamous) celebrities in Hollywood.
Businesses including salons and hair dressers may also sign up for a free business account in order to market and show off their unique styling abilities to a sea of potential clientele. "I wanted to bring commercial users into RateMyHair because many salons have unique and specialized style creations to showcase to the world and this provides them a medium of which to do so," said Klamot.
"Users want to be able leave comments, opinions, or any personal touch to content they are interacting with, this is the reality of the age of the internet today," Klamot stated. "RateMyHair.com will be a dynamic and fully interactive platform that will gain traction as people join not only to leave feedback on styles, but also receive it. Whether someone's style is really hot or really terrible, now you get the chance to have your say and make your opinion heard. We welcome everyone around the world to join, interact, and showcase your uniqueness."
