Our mission; is to get every barbershop to understand that they are a media resource for their community. Data comes in, and barbers facilitate it. We wish to get them to share their traffic through our platform to provide faster information to the community, to create a better branding experience for our ad partners, to provide better deals for their consumers and to create residual income and special benefits for the barber/stylist.

BarberTime was born of the busy environments, of the Black neighborhood barbershops, in Boston MA.
BarberTime was created to harness the energy, that the movie Barbershop brought to light, and ignited a cultural movement.
We have spent 20 years cultivating and defining the media, that will bring the world a new perspective. The Covid19 crisis has brought our industry into a new normal that demands more from barbers & stylists. Our efforts have merged with this need for a voice, that will hold grooming professionals and the agencies that govern them, accountable and responsible for guarding it’s integrity.
~ The History ~
The actual beginnings of The BarberTime Media Network (TBMN) began before our stop at the Harvard TLC and our appearance on the back cover of the Harvard Law Bulletin.
It was before TBMN was granted center table at the NFL Hall of Fame Brunch during Super Bowl XLVI.
It was also before Microsoft agreed to allow TBMN to travel the country and spread our message via their exclusive store locations.
It was even before we met the Tucker Brown group, who helped secure our first contract with the Department of Public Health in Massachusetts, spawning the proof and the validity of the mission.
It began in a barbershop in Boston when a local promoter stepped in the door asking to leave some flyers. Right then, our founder had a vision of a media network sharing information and advertising.
At that moment, the cloudy day above partied ways right above the church across the way, for rays of sunlight and goosebumps all over! GOD’s plan was downloaded and set forth what was to come and provide the proper tools for those chosen to guard their communities and serve the people
At the time of the original vision the world’s technology wasn’t ready and gave the idea time to grow and prove itself. That concept proving came in the form of 2 years of a radio program, 5 years of a television show, 8 magazines and several hair show events.
By the time the tech caught up we re-branded our name and logo, then we soon developed the actual media network that would be the conduit to these brilliant industries.
