Barber in Brooklyn:
"Flatbush Brooklyn nyc barber."
Pros: I enjoy the artistic nature of the profession, as well as the interaction, meeting new people.
Cons: Pays crappy. Boss is stifling, he doesnt want to see you to progress in your life unless he/the shop somehow benefits from it. Wants you there 12 hours a day regardless of customer traffic that day. Does nothing to attract customers, and doesnt want you to either. Gets angry if you dont want to service a customer whos hygiene is questionable, and has a fungus in their hair. Shop is divided, and he allows a hostile work environment.

Barber in Corpus Christi:
"Challenging fear."
Believe in yourself, all things are possible, focus, visualize what the customer explains to you as far as the haircut they are wanting. And then remember to never loose your guideline. Always be teachable, receive correction well, and share with others what you have learned. And remember most important of all NEVER GET GREEDY!

Barber in Winston-Salem:
"No benefits."
No benefits, so you must save, save, save, save!

Barber in Belleville:
"Servitude And Ownership."
Make sure you like serving people and plan to own your own shop. The money is in being an owner/operator.
