You’re never fully dressed without great hair. But does good hair stay at home on Friday’s?

(According to a post on Quora) This comes with besets like delays, wait for queues and an annoying feeling, especially when one has other tasks in hand.
But haircuts are quintessential for men, be it classic or edgy, a hairstyle adds to a person’s looks. Someone had to solve this problem, give practical tips to people, and streamline the process of connecting with the best barbers in town.
Apps like Uber for Haircuts simply assist in booking hair stylists/hairdressers from a salon of your choice. These are not exactly mobile moving haircuts. Neither are they stylists.
Once Jim Mitchell aptly said, “Time is the scarcity, and it’s the commodity we can’t create any more of.” It happens most of the time that one is in need of a haircut but they do not have time to spare. This is the basic concept behind apps like Squire, Shortcut and Uber for Haircuts.
There are few things that one could run into while booking an appointment like:
Making an effort to speak with right person, if the appointment is booked, then getting reminded as the time approaches, getting a suitable time slot can all be messy and clunky but with apps like Shortcut, people have to no more trawl the yellow pages or wade through the directories or any referrals to find them. They have traversed through their set of highs and lows – left no stone unturned and have settled with the perfect fit for top app development companies.
They pride at being available 24/7 for the booking, but you will have to wait for the salon working hours in case of a haircut. One needs to share their location and address details, choose the option of haircut or beard trim, stylized or a basic cut, select the salon and you are ready to go. What is best about Uber for haircuts is that it is effective and efficient with the time. It does not make a person wait or sit on hold while the call is being transferred to the right person. Booking can be done instantaneously, at any time and then you can have plenty on your plate.
