Alexa, I Need a Haircut

by Bill Sweeney

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Alexa Skills for IZEA Worldwide. All opinions are 100% mine.

Everything is tech and tech is everything. Ok, so maybe not everything, but it’s becoming pretty close. Even Supercuts is tech! Now, finding Supercuts locations or “Supercuts near me” is so easy, you just have to ask!! Of course, I’m talking about the amazing Alexa, here to save the haircut day!! We are all just beginning to see how cool and powerful “she” is as she seems to interact with more and more companies, become integrated with more and more products, and develop more and more skills. And now your grooming routine just got a little bit easier with the Opensalon skill on Amazon Alexa! You can book an appointment with a Regis-owned salon brand (Supercuts, Cost Cutters, SmartStyle Hair Salon located inside Walmart and other regional salons)!!!

Just say, “Alexa, I Need a Haircut” and you will be all set. Yep, getting your haircut appointment and finding the nearest Supercuts location is just that easy.

It’s just so easy to book an appointment with Alexa Skills, it’s awesome!! There’s no more looking for locations, calling around to for open times, or trying to find availability for the day! With a couple of quick sentences, Alexa and the Opensalon app has you covered and ready to rock! While this may not be life changing, it’s just something that makes the little things in life that much easier and that much more enjoyable. It’s actually kind of fun for me, too. It’s like living in the Jetsons! Who would have thought I can speak to my phone or speaker in my house and have a haircut booked for me!!! This is just about as perfect as it can get for busy families or last-minute beauty needs. I am all about this and I think you would love using it, too.

Opensalon Skill Is Easy

As with most of the skills that Amazon’s Alexa can perform, the Opensalon skill is fast, easy, and effective, too. You simply say a number of commands, the easiest of which is “Alexa, I need a haircut.” The skill will give you the next available appointment time for the salon closest to you. If you want to go at that time, simply say “Yes.” If not, simply say “No” to make changes. Once you confirm an appointment, you will receive confirmation with the address and time of the appointment. With thousands of locations across the country, a salon will be ready and waiting for you!

Book Your Next Haircut with Alexa

If you are in need of a cut, color, or style, I think you should really try out the Opensalon Alexa skill to book an appointment for you and your family at a Regis-owned salon brand (Supercuts, Cost Cutters, SmartStyle Hair Salon located inside Walmart and other regional salons)!! It’s fast, it’s simple, and it works really well. To find out more, be sure to enable the Opensalon skill in your Alexa app. Simply open the app, search “Opensalon” and enable it!!! It’s a great experience with skilled and professional stylists! Be sure to get that hot towel at Supercuts when you are done!!!

My husband is trying to find a new barber, so this is right up his alley. I can’t wait to use Alexa to find him a new barbershop home. 🙂

Crazy how technology has evolved so that we can do things like this!

Don’t have an Alexa – I kind of draw the line at technology that talks back. LOL. Besides, where I live, it would say, I have an appointment at Great Clips 50.4 miles away. Life is different when you live in the woods. Very interesting article, though.

your haircut looks good, bill. good clean cut. that’s nice you can use the app to schedule a haircut although i wonder if you can request a specific stylist or just get whomever is available? joy

This is so clever! Who would have thought that most homes would have a little digital assistant in them in 2020.

I had never heard of Alexa Skills before. NOW those weird messages I get from Alexa when it doesn’t understand my requests makes sense! How awesome that trade cohorts can get together for each other’s benefit. And MINE! Oh, Alexaaaaaa…

I love Alexa! We talk to ours on a daily basis and ask her so many questions.

That’s cool that you can schedule from the comfort of your own couch. We will be able to do more of this as time moves on — it should be interesting to see what happens.

Hehe…I wonder, what won’t Alexa do for us? Nothing is out of reach for Alexa! I love the new hair-do you got there.

This would be so helpful for me when I travel to a new city. It would be so comforting to know that Alexa would be there to help plan my hair cut.
