I’ve been married for over ten years to a beautiful, hardworking, and super talented hair stylist. I’ve always admired her career as a hair stylist. She loves her job. She gets to be creative and build lasting relationships with her clients. I’ve also seen the hard days. Like when she lost her appointment book. Or, when she had three no-shows in one day, which was the equivalent of a weeks’ worth of groceries.

So, after all this, I decided I was going to help my wife the best way I could, I decided to build an app.

See, I’m a designer. I’ve been solving design problems since the early days of the world wide web. My first solution was to search for a hair stylist business app that my wife could download on her iPad that would help her business. But, after a week of downloading these hairstylist apps, none were that great.

So, I teamed up with my best friend and computer genius Brian G. Strasburg (Co-founder). Together we decided that every hardworking hair stylist deserved a great app to help them run their business… and HairHoncho was born.
