Bringing haircuts to you: Doorbell Barbers makes house calls

NORWALK — Christian Iannucci, founder of Doorbell Barbers, has officially launched his business in Norwalk.

The 29-year-old has created a door-to-door hair-cutting business for men, the first gentlemen’s hair company that is mobile friendly in Fairfield County, he said.

Iannucci, who attended Marymount Manhattan College in New York, graduated with a degree in Communications and Business Management. After six years, Iannucci went to SoNo Academy for Cosmetology to pursue his passion.

“My grandfather, Joe Iannucci, was a barber and owned The Male Room barbershop in Bridgeport for more than 40 years,” he said. “Men were treated like gentlemen back then, and I wanted to recreate that experience and bring it into people’s homes and offices.”

Doorbell Barbers caters to business professionals, seniors, busy parents of young boys, and anyone who wants the convenience of not having to go out to the salon to get a haircut.

Doorbell Barbers covers Fairfield County to New Haven, however, customers may call and request an appointment if they are beyond those towns.

Iannucci said Doorbell Barbers was inspired by the business Uber that provides a taxi service whereby the driver makes the pick up at the customer’s convenience. Doorbell Barbers works like this: The client makes an appointment online at www.doorbellbarbers.com (the website is also mobile friendly) and the barber comes to the client. Or customers may call (203) 521-8450. Clienteles can book from any phone, computer, or computer tablet.

“Customers can put a hairstyle preference, put their address in, and the date of the appointment,” Iannucci said. “They can upload a picture, choose a music playlist, or beverage to accompany their service and pay directly through the site. After they make the appointment, they will receive a e-mail confirmation, and on the day of service, a text message reminder two hours before.”

The prices range from a Gentleman’s Haircut for $40, Haircut and Razor Shave for $60, and Straight Razor Shave for $30. Doorbell Barbers also offer Men’s Hair Removal ranging between $20 and $80. Haircuts for boys and seniors are $25.

“Doorbell Barbers focuses on taking care of people,” Iannucci said. “It essentially makes haircuts convenient and accessible.”
