How To Cut Hair: How To Build A Clientele – Part 2

One of the most important parts of learning how to cut hair is learning how to build a clientele. The bigger your clientele is the more money you will make. This is the second part in this series of blogs that will give you some simple tips on how to build your clientele.

Opportunities arise all the time to attract new customers. It is extremely important to have business cards handy all the time to take advantage of these situations. We are building a rapport with people all of the time in our daily routines and activities. For example: You may be out to dinner and strike up a conversation with the waiter or waitress. Before you leave you can mention you work at XYZ Barbershop or Hair Salon, hand them a card, and give them one quick reason why they should come to you for their next haircut. It could be your years of experience, you may include a relaxing hot towel treatment with every shampoo, every haircut comes with a hot lather neck shave, the shampoo treatment comes with a relaxing scalp massage, or maybe it’s your convenient evening hours. A big part of attracting new customers is to win people over with your personality. The more someone likes you, the more likely they are to come to you for their next haircut and keep coming back.

How To Be A Barber – Customer Service Tips Part 2: Stay on Time

When cutting hair in the barbershop, it is extremely important to stay on time. This statement can take on a few different meanings:

1. When taking appointments make sure to be on time for you clients. Schedule them far enough apart so if someone is 5-10 minutes late you won’t run late for the next customer. The only thing to be careful of is scheduling too far apart where you can’t get all of your customers booked and/or you have too few appointment slots in a day which will cost you money.
2. If you are working on strictly walk-ins it is equally important to stay on time. Even though the customers waiting do not have an appointment you still do not want the wait to be too long. In todays’ world everyone is extremely busy and time is precious. Establish a base line for how long your haircuts will take you and stick to it. Customers respect and expect this consistency.

A few suggestions that can help you stay on time are:

– Wear a watch to make sure that you stick to your allowed time. I wouldn’t wear an expensive one because you might get it wet and you will probably get hair spray and gel on it.
– Another tip is if I get talking with a customer and I am running behind, my front desk coordinator will come and sweep for me giving me the subtle hint to get moving. Your customers will greatly appreciate your timeliness and it will result in increased retention rate, commissions, and tips.

How to Cut Hair: Clipper Cutting – Part 1

Clipper cutting techniques are some of the most important techniques you need to learn in your barbering education. Short hairstyles are back in a big way and here to stay. This is huge for the barbering industry and your career as a barber. Clipper cut customers on average get their haircut every 1-3 weeks which means big income potential from each customer.

That being said the short clipper cut customers tend to be very fussy. They know exactly what they want and will notice any imperfection in their haircut. If you can make them happy you have a customer for life. Another benefit is clipper cut customers have big mouths. They are not embarrassed to tell everyone they know where they got their haircut and how great their barber is.

Keep in mind when you are giving a clipper cut that your haircut will be a walking advertisement. Everywhere that customer goes your haircut is on display. Clipper cut customers think nothing of walking up to a guy they don’t know who has a great haircut and asking: Where did you get that hair cut? This works both ways though. If there is a shadow or line of demarcation in the haircut guys will also ask: Where did you get that haircut? Clipper cut customers look out for each other as well.

Barber School: The Start of Your Barber Education

The first step to any good education is the proper schooling. Going to a good barber or cosmetology school is the START of your foundation as a barber or men’s hairstylist. When selecting a barber school it is a good idea to visit more than one. Do not pick a barber school just because it is the shortest commute or the cheapest. Your career as a barber is at stake.

When visiting a barber school ask permission to talk to a couple of instructors and pick their brains. Ask them why they chose a career in barbering and why they would recommend one to you. Ask them what positive impacts attending their barber school will have on your career as a barber.

Before your visit ends talk to some of the students and ask them a few questions about their experiences so far in barber school or cosmetology school. Why would they recommend their school and how do they feel it will have a positive impact on their future? Are they happy with the student kit or do they feel they would benefit from additional tools? One of the most important things to find out is how much practical experience you will get before you graduate school. Theory is extremely important but you can only learn how to be a barber by being a barber. This may sound overly simple but the best way to learn how to cut men’s hair is by cutting men’s hair. The best way to learn how to shave someone’s face is by shaving someone’s face.

Make sure to get the most out of your experience. Take every advantage you can to take in the knowledge and experiences of all of your teachers. Watch and learn from all of your fellow barber students. Be humble and leave your ego at the door. There is something to be learned from everyone you come in contact with even if it is what not to do. In many cases this is just as valuable a lesson as anything else you will learn. Work on as many clients as possible while you are in barber school. Learn how to cut as many different hairstyles as possible to get the most out of you barber education. Ask your clients a lot of questions as well as your teachers to get a good feel for the male customers’ likes and dislikes. All of the above suggestions will go a long way in giving you a head start upon graduating barber school.
