At theCut, they build technology for the culture. They’re shaping up the barber shop experience, building tools that empower and embolden people to live their best lives. With over 17 million appointments booked, a community of tens of thousands of barbers, and over 2 million users, they are the go-to platform for barber shops.
They welcome people from all backgrounds who want the opportunity to create a future where everyone looks and feels their best. They’re building a culture that’s different from the typical startup, one that resonates with all of the things that are synonymous with urban barbershop culture – sports, music, community, pop culture, etc.
How are they adapting to COVID?
theCut saw their business essentially go to 0 during the start of the pandemic. As new regulations and safety measures were rolled out, they saw a huge increase in adoption – barbers were required to accept appointments only and reduce the usage of cash for safety. They’re now back to full speed and growing faster than ever.
Their team also tripled in size during the pandemic, growing from 4 to 13!
The Cut is building a platform modernizing the barbershop experience.
For barbers, their mobile app manages everything from scheduling, payments, CRM and more.
For clients, they offer streamlined discovery, booking, and payments.
