Working in the beauty and barbering industry produces a full life and an even fuller schedule. So many apps help with productivity, organization, and forming good habits that there are too many from which to choose. But the ShearShare team is here to help you sort through the noise. Here are six favorite apps recommended by renowned beauty and barbering professionals to help you maintain peak performance on a daily basis:

“The productivity app that holds it all together for me and my business is Google Calendar. If you don’t tell TIME where to go, we will wonder where it went. Goggle’s stack of apps all work seamlessly together for getting things done. I’m a die-hard Apple guy on my phone ... But Google runs my life, lol!”
