How to get the best out of your barber?
If you want to experience the best grooming experience possible, you can help unlock your barber’s creativity by showing him/her a photo of a style you'd like to try. You should have a general idea of what you want prior to your appointment.
Sharing photos gives your barber something to work with and gives him/her a clear idea of what you're looking for. Pinterest is a good place to find grooming ideas. Magazine photos are still a good go-to-source for capturing ideas.
It is scientifically proven that when humans look at images of art (barbering is an art), it triggers chemicals within the brain that sparks creativity. Now, it’s important to know that not every look works for everyone. Don’t be offended if your barber says that your style idea may not work for you and suggests another look.
If you disagree and insist on going the opposite route, when your barber makes a suggestion, and you don’t like the results - don’t blame the barber. Remember, you were forewarned.
Lastly, avoid micromanaging your barber. Your style will never look exactly the same. Every barber is unique. A good barber will take your image idea and convert it into his/her own version of a masterpiece.
