The barbering industry has evolved greatly with men’s grooming now a multi-billion-pound worldwide industry. Nevertheless many barbers are missing out on bookings by not taking them online.

Adopting a walk-in appointment strategy has seen many barbers be successful over the years, the uncomplicated ease of walking into a barbers, getting your hair cut quickly and leaving is a simple process. However in contemporary times with the smart phone being so actively present men want to plan their appointments to fit in with their hectic lifestyle. According to a report from Deloitte people in the UK have never been more addicted to their smartphones, so now is the perfect time to capitalise on this.

Removing walk ins altogether could have a detrimental effect on your business however by combining online bookings with walk ins you will not lose custom, this would work by having a few chairs working with pre-bookings and the other chairs focusing on walk ins.
