Listed below are some tips on how to get the best experience while having a barber service completed:
Rule 1: Wash Your Hair And Face
As a courtesy to your barber, prepare to come to your appointment with clean hair. Comb your locks so it’s not messy or knotted, wash off any product, and leave your hat at home. Coming in with products on your hair can alter its texture and make it difficult for your barber to manage, potentially resulting in a haircut that doesn’t look great.
Rule 2: Show Up on Time
Arriving late, even by a couple of minutes, is not only disrespectful but can affect your barber’s schedule for the rest of the day. If for any reason you won’t be able to show up on time, let your barber know right away via phone call or text in case they need to reschedule your appointment.
Rule 3: Practice Patience
Although barbers try their best to stick to a schedule, you may have to wait a few minutes for your appointment to officially begin. Whether that’s the result of a late client before you or other circumstances, come prepared with reading materials or another activity to keep you occupied while you wait.
Once the appointment before yours is done, don’t jump into the barber’s chair until they tell you to do so, as they may need some time to clean up their station. Being patient and understanding that some styles may take longer to achieve is key to a positive relationship with your barber.
Rule 4: Know What You Want
To achieve the best results, your barber will need to know exactly what you want. Asking for “a short style” isn’t very clear, and you might end up with a haircut you don’t love. Bringing photos and learning some basic barber terms can help you better articulate what you want and make the process smoother. You should also bring up any concerns, like if you want a style that works with your receding hairline.
Rule 5: Set Realistic Expectations
Even if you have a haircut you really want in mind, it’s always good to set realistic expectations. Sometimes a certain haircut won’t work for your type of hair or a different style might fit your face shape better. If you find out that the haircut won’t work for your hair, communicate with the barber and ask for suggestions. They might be able to show you some past customer photos of styles that would fit you better.
Rule 6: Trust Your Barber’s Opinion
Knowing the basic barber terms and describing the details of what you want doesn’t mean you should dictate the types of tools or methods they should use. The stylist will know what will work best to achieve the look you want, so there is no need for micromanaging their work. It’s also good to come with an open mind, since they may suggest a cut or style that you hadn’t thought of getting before.
Rule 7: Speak Up Early On
Even though you shouldn’t be micromanaging your barber, be sure to pay attention if they start to cut off more than expected. If that happens, make sure to mention it right away so the barber will have enough time to fix it. Waiting until the end to speak up may take longer to fix and your barber may need to increase the cost of your cut.
Rule 8: Don’t Move Your Head
If you notice your barber adjusting your head regularly, start to focus on staying as still as possible. Try to resist the urge to nod when making conversation, and don’t move around much. It’s best to keep your head still during your haircut to help your barber out.
Rule 9: Don’t Text or Talk on the Phone
Similar to nodding, moving your head to text or holding a phone up to your ear can make it more difficult for your barber to work. Try to avoid phone calls until after your appointment, since it’s a little rude to both the barber and others in the shop.
