Things A Barber Must Know:

  • 1. You will have to learn every type of haircut and style to be a well-rounded barber.
  • 2. Learning to read body language and paying close attention to your client’s behaviors is a MUST.
  • 3. Knowing when to speak and when to just “cut hair” without engaging in conversation. Not everyone comes to a barbershop to chat, some clients come to relax and clear their heads.
  • 4. Being a barber isn’t for the faint of heart, you will fail, and you will gain. Always remain humble no matter the outcome.
  • 5. Although you are Self-Employed, you still have to follow a shop schedule and respect the owner for giving you a place to continue your barbering services.
  • 6. Nobody will be around to hold your hand. You must develop the time-management skills to keep your barber services running smoothly with your clientele.
  • 7. Learn your barber tools and supplies very well, although the industry-level barber brands are made to be workhorses. Running into a snag along the way happens more often than you may think. Being able to take apart your tools and find the problem is a valuable skill to have. Doing this will develop the confidence to fix problematic situations efficiently.
  • 8. You will never be able to please every client, learn to keep your self-esteem high and trust in your craft and value. Take time to research the issues you’re having trouble with and start applying them to avoid any further altercations later down the road.
