7 Steps To A Great Men’s Haircut – Keep Your Haircut Customer Clean

Barbershop Sanitation 7 Steps To A Great Men’s Haircut – Keep Your Haircut Customer Clean: This is the final installment in this blog series but definitely one of the most important and one which will leave a lasting impression.

Before allowing your customer to leave your chair and walk up to the reception desk to pay for their service make sure they are completely cleaned off. While they are still sitting down take a clean towel and wipe off their face one more time. Make sure all shaving cream is off the back of their neck if you include a straight razor neck shave with the haircut. Apply some talc powder to a clean towel and brush off any loose hair clippings from the back of the neck. Last, use a whisk broom to completely brush off the back of the shirt and collar when your customer stands up. One of the most annoying feelings is being itchy the rest of the day after your haircut service from loose hair clippings falling down the back of your customers shirt or sticking to their shirt collar.

All of these little steps featured in this blog series will lead to the ultimate customer service experience and will give you the best chance of gaining and keeping a repeat customer!

Greg Zorian at The International Beauty Show with The Andis Company

IMG_3598I just returned from the International Beauty Show working as a platform artist for The Andis Company. It was an honor to be chosen to represent such a great company with the highest quality of  educators and hair cutting tools. I had the opportunity to spend three days with three incredible Andis educators: Jessica Zeinstra, Kenny Duncan, and Danny Ammorium. We had a blast on stage cutting hair and demonstrating the latest in clipper technology.

I also had the opportunity to talk to many students who have taken my barbering seminars in my home town of Albany, New York as well as barber and cosmetology schools throughout the Northeast and New England. I also had the chance to meet many longtime members of my website as well as numerous subscribers to my YouTube channel. It was an honor to be surrounded by such positive energy and a huge group of people that share an incredible passion for what we do for a living.

Barber Success Tips – Part 5

Understanding the concept of graduation:

Graduation is nothing more than a fancy way to say the hair is gradually cut from shorter to longer. When cutting any men’s hairstyle you need to determine ahead of time the best area of the haircut for the graduation. The area of graduation is determined by the length of the hair on top. The longer the hair on top, the more extreme of an angle and lower on the head form the area graduation will be cut. The shorter the hair on top, the higher on the head form the area graduation can be cut.

The Art Of The Tapered Hairline

In the barbering world the word taper is used often. A tapered haircut simply means shorter hair around the outline gradually getting longer. A tapered outline is the best way to finish off a man’s haircut. It adds another level professionalism to the haircut instead of making a line on the back of the neck. Picture a 1 finger width area around the outline of the haircut. Instead of blocking or rounding it off this area should have a 45 degree bevel which leaves a natural finish that TAPERS down to the skin without a line of demarcation.
