Early last year, during the first wave of the pandemic, a lot of barbershops had to close indefinitely. As time went on and the pandemic began to worsen, we saw a lot of man buns, a lot of afros, and some beards that were overstaying their welcome. It’s no surprise that self-care, including getting your hair sorted, makes a huge impact on someone’s life, and people having to give up this big part of their routine was starting to affect their mental health. Fast forward to late last year, earlier this year, more barbershops started to slowly open up and people couldn’t have run out for a line-up fast enough. People were saying that they had to start booking appointments so far in advance because their barber was so booked up, and some phone lines were so busy that they couldn’t even make appointments ahead of time.
If this sounds a little too close to home, listen up. The Squire app makes connecting barbers and their clients simple, easy, and lightning-fast. Squire gives you the option to book through the app (with your go-to barber) and Instagram (if you see a new up and coming barber you like and want to try out). Not only does the app allow you multiple points of booking contact, but it also keeps you in the loop all the way up to the time you have to check out and pay. Aside from the email and push notification, Squire offers a virtual waiting room, so you can plan out your day the way you want, without having to worry about waiting for a chair in person. With all of these features and more, the Squire app is an essential and seamless addition to anyone’s life.
