What We Do

Clients can spend up to 3 hrs waiting in their local barbershop waiting to get their hair cut. Barbers can lose up to 10 hrs a month in productivity managing appointments by calls and text. We’ve built a intuitive mobile platform that seamlessly integrates into the barbershop experience.

Our Solution

Today, barbers use theCut as a management tool optimizing their business. We also make it easier for them to manage their hundreds of clients and grow their base.

For clients, they’re provided the convenience of 24/7 scheduling and digital payments.

Our Growth

The segment of barbershops we’re focusing on generates over $5 billion dollars every year. In addition men nationwide spent just over $20 billion dollars on grooming products in 2016 and that number is expected to increase every year. As we grow and expand into different business segments we will drive transactions and e-commerce through our platform. theCut launched in May 2016 and today we have 2,500,000+ users and have booked over 25M appointments.

We’re helping nearly 10,000 barbers grow their business. And making it more convenient for everyone booking the over 1M+ appointments every month. To date, we've enabled $500,000,000+ worth of haircuts.
