Simple Mobile App to Make Appointments for a Haircut
Make Your Own App
Haircutting service is in demand all year round. It is a stable business and its market grows along with the cities’ population. Still, the life is speeding up. People are constantly moving from one city to another and don’t have much time to find a suitable barber to make a haircut. The times when a man visited one barber shop for 30 years are gone.
Do you own a barber parlor? Has it been tough to grow your business recently? There’s one last frontier to conquer and it is expanding the reach of your services and meeting clients where they spend most of their time – in their phones, checking their apps.
Even if you run a small-scale operation, you will see the results in one and a half year. Consider it a business management tool to get orders, gather and store client data, communicate with your clients, receive payments, receive feedback, schedule the appointments or to plan a home visit to deliver barber services on-demand.
Making an Uber for hair cutting is a great idea if you’re a modern entrepreneur that keeps an eye on trends and feels the pulse of life. Connect barbers and clients in an easiest and straightforward way – through the mobile app. Uber for barbers is a simple mobile application idea and a good example of an on-demand mobile app. Surely, it won’t become a billion-dollar venture but can become a stable revenue stream.
We offer a ready-made solution with a possibility to customize your platform with original design for roughly $ 25 000. But final price depends on the nature of your unique inquiry.
You can create portfolio, making photos of your clients before and after a visit to your barbershop or even if you make a home visit. A hairdressing app with such functionality can effectively serve any barber operation.

How Much Does It Cost?
To make an app for Barbershop you need designers, developers, business analysts, project managers, and hard work by many professionals. Usually, price for barber on-demand apps starts from $30K per one platform (iOS or Android ) and it can increase, depending on the company you will choose. However, as we have ready-made developed modules as well as extensive experience in making such applications, our prices are lower. We may deliver your own service app with unique design developed specifically for your barber business for only about $25 000.
How Long Will It Take?
Average time of MVP development is 2-4 months. You can be sure to have a working prototype available for real users in about 3 months. During that time the design, functionality, integrated services, and final submission to AppStore and Google Play will all be done.
What Other Options Are There?
If your app is going to be more than just additional business tool, it can turn around how you make money. Consider the fact that Uber or AirBnB are intermediaries that do not deliver services but provide a platform where homeowners meet tenants and passengers meet drivers. Their business model is Software as a Service (SaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS).
As a software provider, Uber and AirBnB make profit from every deal made on the platform. Their ecosystems count millions of daily users and thousands of transactions. At this point, you use AirBnB to find a hotel, even though AirBnB is not a hotel business or hostel provider, it is a broker like Uber is.
To be a barber services provider can be a start of your business but the secret of successful delivery of services is booking optimization. That’s exactly what Booking.com does, gathering millions of travel dorms to its platform and advertising them to the future guests, making it possible for the two to meet each other. As intermediary, Booking.com gets its cut off every transaction made on the platform.
We have been developing Uber Like applications for a long time. Thanks to this we accumulated a huge base of knowledge, expertise, and even ready-made MVP. Using such modules, we reduce app cost down to the most affordable on the market.
