It’s a good time to be a barber.
Fashion and style trends among Millennial men (we won’t say the “H” word), along with a growing preference for small local businesses over large chains has meant a boom in business for the corner barbershop.
In fact, Inc. magazine has reported that the cosmetology and barber school industry was the fasted growing in the country for the year 2011, with 29% growth in the salon industry overall. This is due largely to a resurgence in the idea of old-fashioned, “shave and a haircut” style men’s salons.
But while demand for old-school barbershops is higher than it’s been in decades, if you want to stay competitive in this newly-burgeoning industry it’s going to take more than a spinning pole and a steady hand. A Clover™ point of sale system can give you the tools you need to run your barbershop business right, like the proper modern start-up.
