Finding time for a haircut or beard trim can be a pain in the ass at times. But thanks to the new app Shortcuts, the process has become much easier.
Described as the Uber for mens grooming, this on-demand service summons fully licensed stylists to homes, offices, or hotel rooms within the NYC area. All you have to do is download the app, create a profile, and request a barber to your desired location between 8 a.m. to midnight any day of the week.
Premium haircuts last about 30 minutes and start at $75 each. However, the rate goes down if an order is placed for groups no larger than four clients. For example, haircuts will run $65 each for two, $60 each for three, and $50 each for four; a haircut and beard trim for one is $90, $80 for two, $70 for three, and $60 for four each. Though the prices are a little steeper than what you would find at a traditional barbershop, you have to remember you’re not only paying for professional work, but you’re also paying for convenience.
So, New Yorkers, if you’re ever in a bind and need to squeeze in a haircut or beard trim ASAP, be sure to download Shortcut to your device or iTunes account. You can learn more about the offered services at Shortcut’s website.
