So, why do we think an appointment system will be of benefit?
Having a walk in and wait system is great for any barber, if you have people who are prepared to wait! You just keep working until it’s time to go home or the queue disappears. What could be better than people queuing up to pay for a service? Let’s face it, plenty of people are prepared to just wait. But how many of these people only wait because they know that they’ll have to queue WHEREVER they go?
It is our belief that most people would rather have their hair cut at a pre-arranged time which is convenient for them. If you have a busy day ahead, would you really want to queue for an hour or two for a 20-30 minute haircut? Wouldn’t you rather know that you have an agreed appointment and that within 10 minutes of arrival, you will in that barber’s chair?
At Philip Nicholas, we are all about challenging the traditionally low levels of service that men receive (compared to the ladies) when they go to have their ‘Barnet’ chopped. Our appointment system is just part of this and will allow you to plan your day with the minimum of disruption on our part. By all means, walk in. You will always be welcome straight into the chair if we are not busy. If we are busy, we will advise you how long it is until the next available slot so you can choose whether or not you want to make yourself comfortable and wait or come back later at a pre-arranged time.
Let’s not kid ourselves that there is anything pretentious about making an appointment at a barbershop. We are just trying to evolve to accommodate your busy lifestyle and provide you with a service you deserve.
Appointments can be made from this website, our Facebook page, by calling in or by phoning us.
