Our story about making it Deazy...

In another lifetime, Deazy’s creators founded a marketplace for hairdressers (before the Treatwell bandits arrived). However they experienced first-hand the pain of not getting the right offshore development partner and were left for dead in the development wild west. It was in the ashes of this experience that Deazy was born with a vision to save others from a standoff with cowboy developers!
