Because you just can’t underestimate the importance of a fresh cut.
Balancing school, work and being black can make it difficult to prioritize looking good. But three Howard alumnae and friends are making the efforts involved with being busy, black and well-kempt much simpler with an app providing on-demand barber service to your doorstep.

The HausCall app provides on-demand barber services to users’ doorsteps. Created by Morgan Winbush, Killian Lewis and Crystal Allen-Washington, the app offers users the ability to book an immediate appointment with a barber of their choosing or schedule one in advance.

“It’s homecoming at Howard. Every guy we know is trying to feel and look like Diddy,” Winbush, the Chief Marketing Officer told Vibe. “If you’re running or coming into town really late, and you had to go to #1000Bottles or whatever party is happening on Friday night, but you didn’t have enough time [to spare], you could use HausCall and a barber would come wherever you are to cut your hair and make sure you looked great.”

A soft launch of the app will take place in New York and Washington D.C. this June. If all goes well, it’ll be launching in Atlanta next fall.
