There’s nothing new about mobile hairdressing, but a New York firm has brought it into the 21st Century. Shortcut is an on-demand service that goes to where the customers is.
Service users provide their name, number and e-mail address and select the service they need – whether it’s a trim, a full haircut or a shave. After booking a time slot, the service then sends a professionally trained barber or stylist to their home, office or hotel room. Users can book an appointment for up to four people at a time, and the more in their group, the cheaper each haircut becomes. Shortcut is currently available in New York, as an iOS app.
The difference between this service and the traditional mobile services is the use of modern technology and the immediacy – I need a haircut and I need it now!
With people becoming increasingly time stressed, this approach is likely to find a market.
So could you bring it to the UK? Or thinking more widely, what other time consuming services would people appreciate being given a ‘we-come-to-you-now’ twist?

Alternative Quote Of The Day
“You know what a work cubicle basically says? It basically says, like, ‘You know what? We don’t think you’re smart enough for an office, but we don’t want you to look at anybody’.”
Information publishing is one of the most heavily promoted ways to make some extra money, and yet many people aren’t really clear on what it is. Put simply, an information product is any piece of knowledge that has been recorded in some way – whether that be in a printed format, an audio format, or a video format – so that it can now be passed on to others.
There are dozens of ways to package and sell information. Some of the most common products are, printed books and e-books, booklets and special reports, manuals and workbooks, CDs, downloadable audio files, DVDs, newsletters, subscription-based web sites, workshops and seminars.
All of us have information or knowledge that would be useful to others, and packaging and marketing it in the right way can be highly lucrative. If you have an idea for an information product, and want a second opinion on it, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
