CHOOSING WHO MAKES THE CUT

HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT BARBER OR STYLIST

<PREV NEXT>

Visit Grooming Lounge Barbershops and you’re guaranteed to get a great haircut. That said, we’re aware there’s a big world beyond the Beltway, and such being the case, wanted to provide all men with the info necessary to get a great service in their specific area. Read on for tips on how to choose who makes “your cut.”

  • Get Referrals: If you have a friend, or even an acquaintance, with a great cut, ask them where they got it. Your “friend” will certainly appreciate the compliment and you’ll get a solid recommendation.

  • Look For Education: Ask the potential barber/stylist or their manager how often the barber/stylist has been licensed and how often they participate in professional education. A true pro -- no matter how long they’ve been cutting -- should be a frequent student, continually brushing up on the latest styles and techniques.

  • Demand Some Style: If someone is going to cut your hair, they should certainly have a solid haircut and style themselves. Just like they say “never trust a skinny cook,” men should never trust a messy or disheveled barber/stylist.

  • Find A Good Listener: Any first-rate barber/stylist will provide a consultation prior to the cut to determine what you’re looking for -- and to advise as to what style will fit your face. If they just jump in with the scissors sans a discussion or overview, they shouldn’t make “the cut.”

  • Avoid Distractions: The focus of the haircut should be on your hair. So, if the barber/stylist distracts their focus with gum chewing, phone calls or side conversations, head for the door.
