Birds Barbershop, housed in Austin Texas, is a small barbershop owned by a pair of brothers with a true entrepreneurial spirit. Owners Michael and Jason were looking for a way to grow their business by thinking outside of the box. When they learned that SXSW was coming to town, they sought a way to make the most of the situation. Then, inspiration hit. They built a pop-up barbershop on SXSW grounds, making them the only barber game on festival property. Using GoPayment
to facilitate mobile payments, they were able to swipe customers credit/debit cards on the spot and make the most of a nearly plastic-only situation.
