Tips for Choosing a Barber
Finding the right barber isn’t always easy. This guy will have great knowledge and experience in all things hair, which comes with fantastic skills in holding his hair clippers as a surgeon owns his scalpel. And they’re probably fun to be with as well.
So how do you choose a good barber?
Before anything, a good barber will ask you questions like what style you want, whether or not you like your current style, and what you want to maintain about your hair. This allows them to work around your haircut in the most appropriate way and to give good advice regarding the best styling product to use.
Seeing your barber should be more than an in-and-out practice. A good barber will always take his time when cutting your hair or giving you a shave, and will even ask for your feedback on what he’s doing. You may need the sides a lot shorter or the cowlick at the back removed. A good barber will do as you please, seeing to it that you leave the barbershop with a smile.
Finding the right barber can always begin with a small but telling trial run. Instead of getting a haircut on your first visit, why not go for something less drastic, such as a beard trim? A good barber can work with his clippers and scissors with his eyes closed, so if he fumbles through the process, that’s a big red flag.
Social Media Lookup
Businesses are usually in social media nowadays. Visit some local barbershops on their Facebook and Instagram accounts and try to get a vibe of their abilities. Explore as many before-and-after pictures as you can. Of course, you should take time to read the comments as well. It would be good to know the quality of their customers’ overall experience – after all, there’s so much more to a good barbershop than good haircuts.
Try asking the barber a thing or two regarding hair. You can ask questions about how to handle your hair, how often you should cut it and what products are best for your hair texture and style. You can pretty much tell how much a barber really knows about hair just by the way they talk about it.
Lastly, a good barber isn’t only whiz at cutting hair but will also feel like a friend. When you like your barber as a person, it will be easier to connect with him and vice-versa. Which also means you will likely step out of that barbershop satisfied each time.
