What type of shop do you work in?

As a stylist I have worked in only a few shops to date as I like to stay in one location and grow roots. I began asking myself in 2014 What type of shop do you work in? Is this place professional, elegant, organized, productive, or convenient? You may even have a combo shop where there is more than one of these attributes to mention. I want to discuss these attributes and what they look like from a professional point of view, and how I determined the shop type I’ve worked in along with reasons why they did/didn’t work for me. There are a growing number of beauty/barber shops opening up all over the world! That makes it fair to say that no matter where we are, looking good is a human trait we all share. Now that puts the ball in our hands to ensure the shop we work in is living up to the satisfaction of our markets. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the shop you work in and why it works best for you and your goals.

The Professional shop

Have you ever walked in to a place of business, and everyone just stops and stares right at you? Well that is the opposite of what this shop is about. The minute you walk through the door you are made to feel like you’re taken care of. Whether a warm smile, a simple hello, or clear direction of what to do next, this place is in touch.

That’s just the beginning of the trait, customers are next welcomed with a clean and neat area to wait for services as this is what reception is about. Receiving your guest is where impressions are made and comfort is top priority. There are no outdated magazines, tasteless TV, and music made only for a few to enjoy! No one is perfect, and we often get caught falling behind schedule so the wait should be nothing short of admirable.

Now they’re seated, draped, and ready for services now here comes the consultation. We’re professionals right? The standard ice breaker is usually something like ” what are you looking to do today?” the answer is simple… they want to go four shades lighter with a hint on the warm side. Sounds easy, and rightfully so as long as you use your color course training to complete the job. Now this is where the pro vs. amateur is at play.


  1. The professional shop takes hair care seriously so they will do a thorough analysis of the hair and scalp along with asking questions to determine what is or isn’t possible.
  2. They will 48 hr patch test for possible allergic reactions
  3. keep records of your service on file



  1. Doesn’t check your elasticity, porosity or any scalp abrasion that may come in contact with chemicals
  2. doesn’t check for allergies
  3. Didn’t even ask your name.

Now this doesn’t mean you’re in bad hands because this stylist may be a SEASONED colorist so there’s a good chance you will be satisfied. Either you are in for a very great service or a big bad disaster.

The Elegant shop

Holds back on nothing to please the public it is servicing. While professional this outfit is also swinging in the latest styles, trends. Fashion, and products. You may be greeted with a doorman to take your belongings while you are offered some sort of refreshment while you wait.

This place just doesn’t take care of your hair but YOU as well. If there is any type of delay a complimentary massage or any other short service will be offered. Sound waves of pleasantry will fill the air to set the stage for a great service. The shampoo area holds the most significance in this place giving its customers the most relaxing experience of the day.

Elegant shops are a rare jewel to find so you will know exactly if you work in one or not!

Everyone views elegant different so it’s your road to travel when describing this establishment. Take time to explore the most extravagant situation you can work in. What do you see? How do you feel? What do you hear?

I see bright lights with an open floor space, and a plush seating area that is accompanied with refreshments & entertainment! Restrooms that are always clean with complimentary toiletries as needed. My feeling is quite intoxicating because the vibe is swell of beauty & wellness. I hear only quiet private chatter because snobby gossip is not allowed!

How do you see elegant?

The Organized shop

One of my ALL time favorites is the shop that is organized. There is a lot that goes into operating a business and a hair salon/shop can be no different if not tougher. Who’s in charge of ordering product for the shop? What happens when a customer has a complaint? Is there a walk in system? Paperwork in order?

Among all shops the organized shops stay in business the longest. Without having working order in place the ship is bound to go off course. The captain shouldn’t be in the mess hall while the chef is steering the boat. In many cases shops have a lot of workers in the wrong roles.

It may be ego, ignorance, or just a plain mistake the way some shops operate out of order. It’s important to be around someone who knows if they can’t handle a task then they should delegate that task to another that does. Not because they’re friends, family, or owed a debt. No, because they fit the criteria in guiding the shop to the next level. If your shop doesn’t have client profiles, product for retail, or fight over walk ins then you are not in an organized shop.


My biggest pet peeve is a shop that is never held to a steady schedule. Some days they are open other days they are gone. Never really a clean place with clutter and shop tools everywhere. The bathroom is gloomy and not really relaxing or calming because it felt like it was so small only because there are useless items around. Just unorganized!

Agree or disagree? Have anything to add by all means please feel free.

The Productive shop

Is what every shop opens its doors to be, PRODUCTIVE! I mean who says let’s show up today and do nothing. No one EVER! Production is what keeps food on the table, and the lights on while the heat is warm in the winter so we can chill off during the dog days of summer.

Goals are set in this shop to maintain a level of growth so profit margins can increase. Every season has a special to bring in more business. Education is taken serious to make sure they can offer services that the public need, and be able to advise what the customer can get.

Meetings are held at least every quarter to discuss getting better, making changes, or just team building. To be considered productive your shop needs a clear concise plan of operation that will keep the work week running smooth.

There is no situation where you come in and your items are missing. This is a direct result of the unprofessional, but who is in charge will set expectations where this is not tolerated with strict stipulations on offenders. It just doesn’t stop at stipulations, but enforcing said stipulation. This is cause for effective shop management leaves an environment of structure to promote the most productive shop. You disagree?……… Why?

The Commercial shop

This is usually your strip mall shop location where it doesn’t take much advertising to create a following for two reasons.

  1. The foot traffic in a strip mall is enough to provide customers on its own
  2. Most strip mall shops are chain shop that handle advertising for you

This making it a convenient shop to work in for the stylist who isn’t into advertising or marketing. It’s usually on a public transportation route with a lot of parking for customers to enjoy. This is an ideal situation for the person who doesn’t want to do much advertising for business. The convenience of the shop is great for stylist along with the guest.

These shops for the most part are always booked but never busy, customers won’t have an issue with a long wait while you the stylist will have enough work to make long days fly by. There may not be many bad points to working a commercial brand, the biggest downside is not being able to really build a following clientele. For the most part when an individual comes to a commercial shop they come for the brand name. Every once in a while there may be a stylist to leave the commercial brand and have those customers follow, However that is the exception, not the rule! You would be working to further the commercial brand, but not building a loyal following.

Actually I’d like to gain some background on that. If you know any commercial (super cuts, hair cuttery, great clips) employee that switched to a local establishment do they gain those tickets or do they stay? Leave your comment in the comment section.

So….. Which one fits your place of practice?

Now your workplace could have a mixture of a couple shops making your workplace unique! Or your shop could be none of these and you’re in trouble. Take this time to evaluate the shop in which you work, and make note of its good qualities as well as the bad. Not everyone will be completely satisfied when working so it is important to follow rules of basic customer service, record keeping, and education.

Don’t nit pick!

If your shop is unprofessional you should try to find your exit out or soon you will find business reaching its plateau leaving you with no room to grow. Find a shop that values education, customer service, product knowledge, and teamwork. Don’t settle for lazy owners with no vision of success. Don’t settle for anything less than your worth.

Maybe you should evaluate the type of professional you are, Find out fast what type of shop you work in to make the proper adjustments and push for your successful career.

Down below in the comment section share the type of shop you work or would like to work in & why? If you are a customer please share the type of shop you’d best like to visit for services!

Are you an inconsistent barber?

The inconsistent Barber

<===This barber is one with NO direction or        purpose in the profession.

I must confess that I at one point was on the road of becoming a barber with no direction. I knew I wanted to cut hair, and I knew it would take some time to build a proper base following. However, the bills were only becoming more steady than the income.

This is where panic set in and anxiety took over! For the first time in my life the money wasn’t a steady flow. So I took action on impulse and begin looking for a part-time job to supplement my income. Sounds like a smart, responsible thing to do right? Wrong! Here’s why.

By taking away from the man-hours of actual footwork and trench work to promote my services I was relying on a 9-5 to provide my income. The funny part is back in 2012 I promised myself to never work for another again and here I was seeking that exact thing. There was some part-time work I found the supplement I needed in the cash flow. Not only was there a making up of income I now had pocket money. This was the lure that could have destroyed my barber career. What seemed to be a good thing bought about some guilt when I would get messages from customers that they came by and I wasn’t there. It got annoying as I sent out notifications of my new shop schedule some just couldn’t accept my path.

I began to realize while working this job it was more of a liability than an asset. There was a lack of leadership, and horrible procedure training. After a few disputes with the “boss” I felt my personality may be too strong for a job that doesn’t have a good management system. The first time I was sent home was the last this is why I cannot work for anyone.

Still pretty slow around the shop I was baited into taking a job to teach future beauty professionals. I thought it would be great for me as it was tied to my industry and gave me more credentials as an educator. Well that job just turned out let’s say just a little too unorganized and rude for my liking. The only thing that remained true was my barbering career. The career that I have been neglecting for an extra few bucks.

By this time a rush of new foot traffic hit the area. I didn’t pay enough attention to prepare for this influx so when it happened I wasn’t able to accept it. Instead of building my brand and promoting continuously I left my fields without care so when the rain came to increase my harvest I wasn’t able to increase my harvest. My inconsistency put a damper on my growth, and that was a mistake that I will never let happen again.

Avoiding the plague of inconsistency

Inconsistency comes from a seed of laziness and lack in concentration. To stay clear of this trait we must have focus on what is it that we really want. I wanted to be able to save money and begin investing but I let panic make my decisions. I didn’t trust the process of growth. My concentration was lost on getting better and giving great services putting quality over quantity. When you put focus on detail and get to work making it a reality the rest will begin to happen. You can only do ONE thing so much before you perfect it and be sought out for that consistent work.

Whatever it is you are doing you have to find a passion for it or it will always be a drag to do. Stay engulfed in trying to be better at every turn. Your last cut wasn’t your best so make that next one the BEST just to give it your best with each and every cut thereafter. Be willing to learn from everyone and pay close attention to the humble individuals those are the ones you learn more from. Find inspiration from a barber that you believe to be the best.

Make goals consistently

This helps keeping a consistent attitude. Short term goals help you move toward a long term goal. So ask yourself. What do you really want to do? What do you expect? How bad do you want it? What are you willing to do to get it? Are you ready to lose? From here you can be realistic to the goals you make which means its more likely you will find success in completion.

The key is to begin breaking bad habits and creating good ones. Consistently seek something new to learn to challenge yourself by coming out of your comfort zone. With every mistake comes a moment to learn what not to do on the next go round.

Choosing not to be inconsistent

Ultimately the choice to be inconsistent is yours to make. You have to decide to be better at WHATEVER it is we do in life. What are we doing to ensure we are our best selves? Consistency goes a long way when it comes to life. The consistent gets better results because they refuse to give up! The inconsistent usually drifts through life without creating roots, when there are no roots there can be NO strength.

To be successful in the world of barbering there needs to be patience or passion. In some cases it may take a while to grow trustworthy with the public. Patience provides a calm that helps as it gives you what is needed to build a sustainable following to feed your family. Passion is what drives the machine when things do not look prosperous. Passion becomes the fuel to succeed because being a barber is all you want to be, and nothing will stop that! Consider it a blessing to have both Passion & Patience because you will find success more pleasantly.

Are you an inconsistent barber

Yes means you are being honest and that is the first step to redemption to those who seek it. No means you’re on the right track and I advise you to stay consistent and thrive!

To be a success, I suggest some habit breaking exercises to being more consistent. Write down task to do on a daily basis. Complete these task by days out every day. To obtain consistent behavior than change is required and training yourself is what it takes.

In closing

One chapter of inconsistency doesn’t have to be the whole book When you find yourself in this phase just pick up the slack. But I advise you to be honest, and keep an open ear to learn. It doesn’t matter how long you have been a barber there is always something new to learn.

I found myself around an inconsistent barber who believed to know it all and I found that I was becoming the same way. This person claimed to be barbering for 30+ years and did work as if he was just beginning. That couldn’t be me so I began to remove myself from this person arena, built a cocoon where I began studying my field and honing my craft!

I found my product was improving my base was moving on a slow incline which is better than a decline, and I found happiness in thinking of new ways to market and promote my services. Now I have to trust the process watch my spending and prepare my field for the next season of rain to increase my harvest! Promising myself never to go back on my word to never be employed by anyone again.

I hope this reading will inspire someone to become consistent with whatever they set out to do!

The arsenal of tools
Tools of the trade for the beginning barber!

The right tool makes a world of difference!

Hello guest, followers, and friends!

To cut hair efficiently it is imperative to learn the tools of the trade. Here I will discuss tool selection and how they are used to create different styles and looks. Every barber has a go to clipper that will always give them the best results. You will have to experiment with different brands to find your go to clipper. I’m going to give you the trusted brands used in the male grooming industry.

Tool selection

To better serve your needs I’m going to break the selections down into 2 classes.

Class A: clipper trimmer set, comb, brush

The clipper

This is for the individual at home who needs to stay tight in between barber visits, or to have around the dorm for those quick last minute clean ups. To suit this person a regular rotary clipper would suffice.

I suggest the Oster fast feed clipper with an adjustable blade. This clipper is to be used on dry hair only and comes with attachment combs to achieve desired lengths. Easy to clean and maintain this clipper has the lasting power to endure the test of time. This clipper can be used for blending hair and cutting the hair to any desired length with the simple use of an attachment. It’s a lightweight piece of equipment with the ability to adjust the cutting length with the use of a lever on its side. A toothbrush can be used to clean the hair from the teeth of the blades while clipper oil is used to keep the blades in good working condition. After each use a drop of oil is recommended.

The trimmer

For finishing, dry shaving, and detail the andis Styliner II is my recommend. This trimmer tends to have a long lasting motor with a durable housing. With the proper maintenance this clipper can last a lifetime. With proper tuning and correct adjustment on the blade set sharp lineups and clean hair removal can be achieved with ease. Its powerful motor and durable casing this piece of equipment is easily my favorite trimmer to have at all times. In fact the first pair of trimmers I owned was a pair of styliners given to me by my brother in 2002! So as you can see I am speaking from first hand knowledge.Andis Styliner trimmersThey do sell clipper/trimmer combo sets and I recommend you to try one of those just to become familiar with the equipment before making an investment. You will find out quickly how the quality of your equipment is important for long term use or you’ll be buying clippers every other year. The price will eventually be cheaper than the cost.

Class B: Universal Clipper, Blending Clipper, Trimmers, Razors, Scissors, combs, brushThe classic Oster 76

This class is for the future barber and current professionals giving a well rounded arsenal of grooming equipment.

The clipper

The universal clipper is one that can be used on wet or dry hair. Using a detachable blade system this clipper is for heavy duty JOBS. You can find this style of clipper in Andis or Oster. While there are other companies coming out with this style of clipper the andis & oster brand is well trusted among industry leaders.

The Oster 76  is my choice to recommend as it has been my go to universal for the past 12 years. Its a high maintenance clipper that needs carbon brushes swapped out when worn and grease to lube the gears. It is a long lasting piece of equipment that can be used when cutting in high volume. Used for taking down the roughest mane or blending the finest locks the 76 is classic and worth every penny. Andis produced a universal clipper that comes cordless which is convenient for cutting on the go or just less hassle with wires.

The blending clipper is  used for the fading and taper aspect of your grooming needs. This is where preference comes into play. I prefer the andis master magnetiThe andis Master clipperc motor clipper. Wahl has a number of clippers that will work just as fine or better. Just to name a few of those Wahl clippers they are as follows. Wahl taper 2000, legends, sterling, senior, and Magic clippers.

With the adjustable blade and attachment combs fading and blending can be made easy. The master has been improved over the years to with its power button to blade set. The master holds a very powerful motor that can make the clipper run hot after continuous use without a break. To cool it down the andis cool lube will do the trick.

The trimmers

Along with the andis styliner IIs that I have mentioned above I want to add the andis T-outliner.The modified Andis t outliner This trimmer has the BEST ability to be adjusted and when tuned properly they cut like a hot knife through butter in the summer. This particular model I modified to gain easy access to the tension screw giving the blade less or more power.

To complete these clipper kits I would add a Hard bristle brush for extra coarse hair and a soft bristle brush for fine hair. A taper comb is designed for clipper cutting as it has a small side to use clipper over comb on short cuts.


Shaving can be achieved wet or dry. Dry shaves are achieved with a set of trimmers and a face or head prepped by a good wash. A wet shave is achieved with oil,gel,cream and a straight razor. Straight razors of today use disposable razors. Disposable blades are manufactured by many outlets. It’s a matter of preference in which you choose, but I like to deal with personna red Israeli steel blades, or the derby 100 pack half blades. Those are the brands that never failed me as I look for a sharp edge with an easy glide.

 If you don’t feel comfortable with a straight edge an electric razor is the best electric razor by wahl way to achieve a clean look giving a close shave. Each brand has come out with a variation of the electric razors, however, you can take a look at my choice by reading my review, and why I choose the wahl 5 star shaver/shaper to tackle close dry shaving jobs.

These are the tools of the trade that I like to use to complete my men’s grooming services. There are more tools that I like to use these are just the few that I wanted to share. I hope you guys enjoyed the insight on tools of the trade, and visit Amazon to purchase one or two to add to your toolbox. From professional to beginners these tools are easy to use with paying close attention to the instructions.

Keeping your tools clean

Keep the public safe!

As a barber stylist, it is my professional and legal obligation to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria while servicing the public. I would like to discuss the importance of keeping your tools clean to ensure you are practicing safe procedures. In many cases dirty tools can cause infectious disease and disorders to spread from person to person. Ringworm, dandruff are among many infectious diseases that can pass through the public. Practicing disinfection regularly can cut down on this possibility by 99.99%. Using proper decontaminating procedures will ensure this, and here they are.

Levels of sanitation

There are three levels of santitation to reference when working in the field of beauty. Here they are from least effective to the most!

  1. Sanitization: using soap and water to reduce  the number of germs, and bacteria from porous surfaces that causes disease. Does not stop germs from resurfacing.
  2. Disinfection: using an E.P.A registered cleaner to remove the presence of germs, bacteria, viruses, and fungi from all non-porous surfaces.
  3. Sterilization: the most effective way to remove and reduce ALL disease causing bacteria, fungus, and viruses.

Those being the three levels it is easier to break it down by remembering while your hands can be sanitized, they can only be sterilized by using sterilized gloves. Non-porous areas such as tools and stations can be disinfected and dress for protection (i,e paper towel)

In the beauty field because we do not penetrate the skin none of the tools we use need to be sterilized.

Disinfection is required after each guest in the beauty industry to ensure the control of infection and its mobility.

Making sure your hands are sanitized is a guaranteed way to ensure you are free of germs and microbes.

Infection control products

The goal is to prevent the spread of disease to the public. To decontaminate items must first be cleaned and then disinfected. The federal government have put laws into place for proper precaution to prevent the spread of bacteria. If you fail to follow proper disinfection procedure, legal action can be taken where you can be held responsible for any outcome in result.

it is important to keep all products labeled and a record of material safety data sheets on the premise to guarantee proper use. Before using any agent the safety and storage instructions must be read to make sure they are correctly used.

For any disinfectant to be effective it must be E.P.A registered as a broad spectrum cleaner making it hospital grade able to kill all viruses, fungi, and bacteria air or bloodbourne. This number can be found somewhere on the bottle usually on the back under the active ingredients. If your cleaner isn’t registered then you may be spreading bacteria and not knowing.

Bleach is the #1 used cleaner in the barbershop mixed at a 10:1 ratio to be effective. Ten parts water to every one part bleach. Two ounces of bleach requires 20 ounces of water to become an effective disinfectant.

I use the mar-v-cide spray to disinfect as it is easy to use and has multiple uses as an odor eliminator, and disinfectant for my tools and station.

purell is your universal hand sanitizer, but rubbing alcohol can be used in substitution at 70% ethyl alcohol and 91% isopropyl alcohol.

Infection control procedures

The procedure of infection control is just as important if not more than the products. If you don’t administer the products as directed they can be ineffective leaving your guest vulnerable to contract disease. Leaving YOU the barber liable or YOU the guest infected.

gloves for safety


disposable gloves and goggles should be worn to protect your skin and eyes as the ingredients of your disinfectant can be hazardous. Always resort to your M.S.D.S to be on the safe side.

All tools and surfaces must be cleaned and decontaminated before they can be disinfected. Here are the steps in disinfecting clippers for infection control practices.

Using a toothbrush with warm mild soapy water should be used to remove all dirt, debris, and skin from the surface/ teeth of your tool. Use a towel/paper towel to dry your tool of excess moisture.

Holding your spray 6-8 inches from the surface spray your clipper head until covered. To sanitize; the clipper can be wiped off right away. In order to kill bacteria, virus, and fungus the spray must sit for ten minutes or suggested contact time of product before being wiped away. This method is used whenever your tool comes in contact with any type of body fluid. MUST be done WITHOUT HESITATION whenever a bloodspill happens.

implements such as combs, brushes, and metals can be decontaminated first then sat in a 10:1 bleach solution to disinfect your implements. Completely submerged in the solution and left for at least 10 minutes.

Infection control conclusion

Bacteria and viruses cannot be seen with the naked eye so using precaution before and after each guest is paramount. It is easy to spread disease and disorder if infection control is not a practice.

Have you ever seen skin irritation from razors? Or bumps caused by an uncomfortable shave? This can be caused by bacteria being transferred by the dead skin and dirt left behind on clippers. Each passing of the clipper on ones face or head can leave behind bacteria easily contaminating the skin leaving it open for infection.

So the next time you go get a haircut take a good look at your barber and how he cleans his tools. Does he constantly brush away dirt and debris? Does he clean his hands before beginning your service? Ask can you look in his station and see what type of response you get. Does he put his clippers away without spraying or brushing them? If so, don’t be afraid to ask that the tools be cleaned before proceeding with your service. It may be a matter of infection, or infection control.

If you are a barber start practicing decontamination and disinfection NOW. Keeping your tools clean is a must if you want to enjoy a long healthy career ensuring safe services for each and every guest you seat! Being negligent for a disease or infection you could have prevented can be avoided with proper infection control practices. Legally and professionally practice safely and properly!

Discussing men haircut styles

Let’s talk about men’s haircut styles!

As a barber I have cut over 10,000 different heads in my career. The one thing that keeps me challenged is the different men haircut styles that get requested. When I first began cutting it would make me tremble to get a style cut. Today I welcome the opportunity to be creative.

It can get boring at times to cut the same hairstyle day in day out. In my rookie years that’s all I would hope for. A regular same length buzz cut, or a high and tight state trooper cut. That’s all I was ever comfortable doing, or felt I was good at! That’s fine for someone just beginning to become familiar with technique, but after while where is the creation that sets my ability apart from the regular.

I needed to let my creativity out so that’s  when I decided to take on the next customer that wanted a regular cut, and assert my professional opinion to suggest something more stylish. It WORKED! The next guest was game for it and said “sure!” Well there I was with my chance to challenge  myself and put my creative side to work.

45 mins later I cut one of the WORSE Mohawks ever to adorned by a human being not in a comedy show. Well I was still fairly new I was only in school 3 weeks. Sure I was cutting before that but, never a style cut. Now that it was over it was painless actually. I began watching dvd after dvd studying advanced cuts. Next time around I will knock it out the park. 13 years later and Mohawks are my favorite cuts to do and used to be one of the most requested from me.

The ideas for haircut are just bought back into circulation from the past. A lot of the styles worn today are from different eras in time from the 80’s with high top fades to pompadours from the 1700’s. It’s fair to say some styles will never go out of style, while other styles will return to be the style!

Although hair is hair not all hair can or should be worn the same. I find myself having to remind some guest that not everyone can wear the same styles and pull it off. due to texture, length, condition, density, etc… So at the end of the day it’s important to know what you can, or cannot pull off. This is the general rule of thumb that I follow!

the Different Face types

By determining the shapes of the face I can recommend a style that’s pleasing to the eye, and will suit your profile. Oval being the perfect shape face for design any cut can be sported. Triangle, diamond, and heart has similar features giving this keeping the top on the lower side will shorten the face giving the pointy chin less pointy. Leaving round, and square as unique. Round faces do well with square shapes hair to draw the eye from the roundness. While a square shape can be softened with a round shaping. Now these are general rules not to be followed all of the time.

There are a few more checks to

Some features and bone structures allow room to be creative. Hair texture, and density are vital to the overall look  of a specific design. You can’t come in with a picture of silky wavy short cropped hair when your hair is a Brillo pad on steroids. After all I’m only a barber not a magician!

Lastly, when a guest doesn’t know exactly what they’d like a consultation is a sure way to discover what will suit this individual.  for a men’s haircut I tend to ask these questions to discover what style to administer.

  1. What do you do for work?
  2. Hobbies?
  3. outgoing or home body?
  4. life of the party or glad to get invited?
  5. what is your maintenance routine?

With these question I will find out if he can wear a funky style or has to keep it professional for work. His hobby will give me a little insight into who he is, and what they can/can’t pull off. Home bodies tend to keep it routine. Therefore being a homebody means usually a regular cut will suffice while outgoing can be adventurous and willing to try anything. Life of the party can pull off adventurous looks  as they can be adventurous. Maintenance is vital! One who doesn’t shampoo or cleanse the skin under the hair then a regular low buzz cut is best!

If you have had any men’s haircut style ideas that didn’t turn out too well, or any success with choosing a men haircut style. It’s probably because the proper elements of designs weren’t used, or you chose a style that didn’t fit your profile.

I would love to hear how you prefer your style, and why? If you are a stylist what rule of thumb do you use when approaching your grooming duty? Leave your comments below, and don’t forget to follow on Instagram @ shannon_kamal
