3 Questions Everyone Should Ask Their Barber March 7, 2019

3 Questions Everyone Should Ask Their Barber, ,

Whether you like a crew cut, tapered fade, or neat and clean look, having an open, communicative relationship with your barber can be beneficial, when it comes to maintaining healthy hair. To avoid leaving your barbershop unsatisfied or disappointed, it’s important to arrive prepared for your appointment with a clear idea of the style you seek. Before you commit to any particular cut and get comfortable in your barber’s chair, here are three important questions you need to ask. 

3 Questions You Have to Ask Your Barber

1. Does This Style Suit Me?

If you find a photograph of the style you like online or in a magazine, you have to take into account the possibility that it could look very different on you in real life. Before the hairstylist breaks out the scissors, ask them if they think the style you are interested in will suit your face shape and bone structure. For example, people who have small faces may be swallowed up by heavy bangs, and people with longer faces may benefit from a shorter cut to create balance.

2. How Often Should I Get a Hair Cut? 

Some hairstyles need more upkeep than others, especially fades or intricate designs that require very short haircuts to keep their desired effect. If you have to come in every two weeks for a trim, you may also decide a low-maintenance hairstyle is a better choice before you get a cut.

3. How Do I Take Care of My Hair?

Many drug store hair products for men are a catch-all, offering shampoo, conditioner, and even body wash all in one. However, the chemicals used in these products may not be the best for your locks. Ask your barber what styling products will help you achieve your look, but also keep your hair healthy. Also, make sure to let your barber know if you suffer from any seasonal hair issues like dryness or dandruff.
