There are a ton of reasons why barbershop owners and elite barbers choose Squire’s POS system over competitors. Missing from the 5 things Squire does better than its competition was the integration of payroll into its software. Now, barbershop payroll will become easier than ever with the help of Gusto.



With the expertise of the all-in-one payroll platform, Squire barbershop owners can not only calculate salary, hourly wages and overtime, but they can also automatically file local, state and federal payroll taxes. It’s literally never been easier to pay out your chair. Additionally, direct deposit of paychecks and automatic W-2 creation is a feature that should please both sides.


Squire’s Head of Product, Aram Muradyan, was excited to see the collaborative launch:


“Squire is built to be a difference maker for barbers – not just a convenient software solution. Our customers have been waiting for a solution that makes payroll work for their needs. We are excited to be able to build a product that will leverage the power of Gusto’s payroll capabilities and Squire’s user experience and unique understanding of how payroll should function in the context of barbershop operations.”


Since Squire’s software already lets owners track total generated revenue, hours worked and commission, it only made sense to upgrade the user experience and streamline the payroll.


CEO and co-founder Songe LaRon had this to say:


“In launching a payroll solution integrated into our platform, Squire continues to build on our commitment to be the best-in-class, end-to-end platform to power all parts of barbershop operations.”


We’re excited for the future of barbershop payroll because it means happier barbers and thus happier customers.
