Flossie.com is on the prowl for investors, just a couple of months after raising an undisclosed amount in a funding round led by Mike Carden and Pete Weaver, formerly of Sonar6.

Flossie, which describes itself as the wotif.com of the hair and beauty industry – finding spare inventory and selling salon and spa quiet-time appointments – is now a year old and looking to expand its operations around the country shortly.

That'll be followed by Los Angeles from June, its first international market, and beyond that, San Francisco, Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore in the next two years.

At the moment, founder Jenene Crossan holds a majority stake (54.67 percent, according to the Companies Office).

This round of funding will close on March 30.
