Everyone wants to maintain a clean head and face that despite the shaving style, they will still look good. It is important for you to find one reliable stylist who will be handling your hair always. All they need is for you to visit their shops regularly, and maintain a particular style. It is important to find someone who you can spark random conversations with as you are being shaved. Therefore, there are quite a number of issues you should examine before seeking for that particular barber’s services.
First, when you visit a barber shop, be keen and make observations on how things are done in that particular shop. It is advisable to look at the barber’s level of confidence while he’s handling people’s heads. Remember you are going to entrust this person with your head, hence he must be confident and able to handle their tasks with ease. Professional barbers know how to welcome clients with a smile and a firm hand shake. They will also look at your face and suggest a style that will fit your outlook. Newbies don’t give opinions or suggestions, but they will rather do what you say. It is important to observe and listen keenly on the barber’s voice and tone. You should not seek for the services of a barber who avoids meeting your eyes, or one whose voice is shaky. That is another sign of not being confident of themselves.
The first impression created by the barber and the barber shop are critical for you to give consideration before committing to be shaved by them. If the barber is well shaved, clean and presentable, they definitely understand their job description. The barber shop must also be kept clean and tidy because its condition will speak volumes about the nature of services you are likely to receive. You should ensure that there is proper ventilation of the barber shop for better air circulation, floors should be clean, and towels must be clean and dry.
You don’t want to go to a barber shop only to come out with infections or dirt that you were not anticipating in the first place. You should also try to provoke a conversation and listen to the way the barber talks. You should look for the right jargon from their conversations. You should also listen to and weigh the questions that particular barber is asking you about. Professional jargon will sieve professionals from amateurs because, amateurs will either use terminologies wrongly, or they are not aware of these terms. For example, a professional will ask questions like; “What number will I use in the sides?” Finally investigate if the barber asks their clients for feedback after the services. Experts will always give you an opportunity to either critic or commend them by allowing you to look at yourself in the mirror and commenting on what you see.
