The husband-and-wife duo behind ShearShare, an app enabling beauty professionals to rent booths at salons, spas and barbershops affectionately nicknamed “HairBnB,” is taking the beauty industry by storm.
In an effort to fill the excess capacity in their barbershop and salon, Dr. Tye and Courtney Caldwell created ShearShare – a mobile app that provides licensed barbers and beauticians with rent-flexible, affordable spaces to work without long-term leases or commission fees.
According to the Caldwells, the beauty industry is the second largest industry for freelancers and independent contractors. With over 1 million people in the U.S. currently working as hair stylists, ShearShare is poised to help many of them find more flexible and affordable workspaces. Salon and barbershop owners can also use ShearShare as a way to generate additional income by renting out unused space on a short-term basis.

According to the Caldwells, the beauty industry is the second largest industry for freelancers and independent contractors. Unlike other companies that are trying to serve stylists by offering them features like booking and appointments independent of salons — or services for salons alone — ShearShare is trying to serve both sides of the marketplace with the tools they need.
“We’re not a StyleSeat. We’re not a Squire,” said Courtney. What they are is expanding rapidly. The company has listings in more than 600 cities ranging from a chair that rents for $15 in Georgia to one that rents for $569 in the heart of Manhattan in New York City.
