If you have worked in a barbershop long enough, chances are you have heard a barber say one of these…. Here are 10 things some barbers say.
1. I don’t need a appointment app, I only take walk ins
2. I’ll never use dye, color, or hair fibers.
3. I don’t need any social media, I have business cards
4. I’m not cutting kids, they move too much.
5. I’m not cutting none of those crazy designs.
6. I don’t cut (insert ethnicity) hair.
7. I’m don’t need to go to a barber class, I know how to cut.
8. I don’t need to use razors on my cuts.
9. How did (insert celebrity barber) get that job?I cut better than them!
10. I don’t need shears, clippers will do the same thing.
After doing a lot of traveling this year, I noticed some of the different prices in haircuts. I saw prices ranging from $5.99 -$50 for a cut. Every shop is different and I realize some shops in the same area can have a drastically different price. I also observed that prices in heavily populated areas are more expensive; for the most part, than suburban areas. Unfortunately, there will always be cutthroat or bootleg barbers who lower the profession by offering ridiculous ($5.99) prices.With the new year coming fast, barbers are asking themselves “should I raise prices?”Here are some of the prices I noticed:
New York City.-haircut only-$20
Los Angeles- Fade- $26
Philadelphia- haircut only(including shampoo)-$23
Long Beach-haircut only-$30
Columbia, SC- haircut/beard-$22
Miami- haircut/straight razor shave-$25
