Haircuts take time.

There are no shortcuts.

Your head must physically be at the barbershop.

Until now.

Introducing Hot Towels, a just-launched NYC concern that brings a master barber to wherever you happen to be sitting, taking appointments now.

Here’s what you do:

1. Grow hair.

2. Call Hot Towels to schedule an appointment at your home, office — wherever.

3. Stay put.

In short order, a guy name Tony arrives.

Tony is a master barber.

He’s trimmed the locks of everyone from celebs to hedge funders; he likes to brag he can do any cut under the sun. He also has an awesome Brooklyn accent.

Here’s the catch: for Tony to come, he needs to trim or shave five guys minimum.

But there’s no max, so he’ll chop the whole damn office if that’s your pleasure.

Tony brings everything, from reclining barber chair to hot towel machine. Thirty bucks for a cut or a straight razor shave, including Tony’s famous “hot towel massage” that leaves you relaxed and minty fresh.

Afterward he cleans up so nice “you’ll swear I was never there.”

Except you’ll be better looking.
