How to Choose a Barber
Finding the right barber isn’t always easy. This guy will have wide knowledge regarding hair and can manipulate hair clippers with such flair as a surgeon does a scalpel. And they’re probably fun to be with as well.
So what are the things to consider before choosing a 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 helps them determine what actions to take while handling your hair, as well as what styling product to recommend for your hairstyle.
Going to the barbershop should not be an in-and-out thing. 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 probably want the sides much shorter or that cowlick gone. A good barber will do as you please, seeing to it that you leave the barbershop with a smile.
The great thing about finding a good barber is that you can always give him a test run with a small job. 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 Research
Businesses are usually in social media nowadays. Check out some local barbershops on Facebook and Instagram and try to get a feel of what they do. Explore as many before-and-after pictures as you can. Definitely, you should also take time to scan through the comments. You’ll want to know how the experience was like for their customers.
Try talking to the barber about hair. You can ask for advice regarding managing your hair or what products to use for your hair’s texture and style. By observing how a barber talks about hair, you can already tell whether or not they’re a real expert.
Lastly, a good barber isn’t only whiz at cutting hair but will also feel like a friend. Having a barber you actually like makes it for you to see eye to eye. Which means there’s a much better chance of you walking out of that barbershop with exactly the look you want.
