Having a stunning haircut sets the cornerstone for your presence and your confidence as well. It gives you the boost you need to show the world what you are made of! That’s why we say, “More than a trim”. All this magic, and who is the one snapping their fingers to grant you this gift of a radiant countenance? A good barber. A barber you trust to make everything right when your hair refuses to match up to your needs. Wonders, right?
"What should I look for in a barber?" is presumably the question swirling in your mind at the moment. Worry not, for we have collected some tips you need to consider when looking for a barber you can trust yourself (or your hair, to be precise) with!
They listen well.
Listening comes with paying attention to what is being said. A good barber will make that point clear in the initial consultation itself. The first consultation is important as it determines the sort of haircut and style the client is opting for. A good barber will be thorough with your needs and wants and may even ask for a reference photo for more clarity.
They will also demonstrate good communication skills by keeping you engaged while doing the necessary hair care. Showing an interest in what you have to say and being conscious of your requirements puts not just a good barber, but anyone, on your list of favourites!
They keep themselves updated.
No matter the years of experience and clientele a barber has under their belt, it all falls apart if they are still hung up on their techniques from eons ago. A good barber's reputation is based on the client's visions they have brought to reality, which spring from the techniques they have mastered over the years along with being updated on what works best for what style.
Stagnancy never brings about change. A good barber will never stop studying new techniques. They might have left school behind, but the teachings and studying persist. Adaptability and practice make the perfect duo!
The new technology and updates that the current advances provide are what they should incorporate into their regimen so that they can provide you with the satisfaction of looking good and on-trend!
Don’t forget to research!
Log into your social media platforms, put in those keywords, add the hashtags, and scroll! Examine the reviews and testimonials written by customers of the Barbershop you're considering.
