Mobile Barber Appacut Outstrips Major UK High-Street Chains

Appacut, a mobile barber application based in Manchester, UK, is now hosting more professional barbers than the largest high-street barber chain in the country. Since its inception last year, Appacut has revolutionized the way barbers connect with clients, providing a platform for freelancers to thrive without the financial burden of traditional shopfronts.

This digital marketplace does not employ barbers directly but leverages a business model similar to that of Uber and Airbnb, focusing on service without owning the infrastructure. This approach has quickly positioned Appacut as a leading player in the industry.

The app offers a straightforward, user-friendly interface that simplifies booking a professional barber to just four clicks, catering especially to those who value time and convenience. Appacut promises significantly higher earnings for its barbers, supplemented by bonuses for meeting specific targets.

Michael Lawes, representing Appacut, outlined the company’s ethos: “Consumers now want to access their essential services at the click of a button. And if possible, they want the service brought to them. You only have to take a look at the rise of apps like Just Eat, Deliveroo and Uber for evidence of that. Appacut is the barbering and hairdressing sector’s answer to this changing demand. Here in the UK, we pay for more than 360 million haircuts every year, so the demand is staggering. Our unique app gives customers the ability to browse dozens of barbers and stylists in their area and choose the one that most closely matches their preferences. That’s a process that requires just four clicks.”

Jordan Ryan Madeley, CTO, highlights the integral role of technology: “The barber visits the customer’s home at the specified time – equipped with everything required for a successful hair-styling appointment. The professional slashes their operating overheads, and the client doesn’t have to venture into a High Street or worry about travel expenses. High Street rents and utility bills are at an all-time high in the UK, so Appacut is proving increasingly popular among independent barbers and business owners looking for ways to boost their profitability.”

With a strong base of users in Manchester, including VIPs and celebrities, Appacut is now focused on expanding its innovative service across the UK and beyond through additional funding rounds.
