The barber profession can be a shady business. A lot of them are barbers because it's a quick and fairly easy to retain a license (id say 75% dont even have licenses because of the $$$$), they have records, ect. I've been in barber shops were barbers fight each other over a basketball discussion. I've seen barber shops vandalized by owners of other barber shops. **** is serious.

If you trademark it, that could be a legit reality show that a lot of us can relate to. "Barber Wars". Flourish young man, flourish.

You're just sitting there with a incomplete cut, cape and all, can't even turn your neck all the way because the neck paper is super tight. So you have to use one of your feet and kind of scoot the chair in the direction of where the action is going down. I'd be heated.

My old barber was drunk off henny at 9am, walking around the shop waving a straight blade razor, arguing w/ a customer about mayweather. roll.gif

Barbers can be the worst, bruh...

Told this story before, but back in the day, across the street from St. John's there was a barbershop called Headquarters. Most of the barbers in there were pretty good, but there was this one dude named Mouse (looked identical to Beanie Segal) who was terrible. He smelled like garbage...literally stinky trash, and would cut hair/touch your head while licking cheeto dust/powdered sugar from donuts off his fingers. Not to mention, I saw him leave dudes in the chair mid-cut so he could take lunch. laugh.gif

Also...the "knowledge" that these guys try to kick roll.gif Rule of thumb...whatever advice they give, do the opposite. Don't get in too philosophical of conversations...just agree and keep it moving.

I don't think the entire profession should be subject to your rant/post. You just have a wack barber point blank. Any barber worth a damn is making decent/good money. It all depends on how he/she conducts themselves as a professional, and their skills.

Some people would stay with a mediocre barber if he is reliable, and not jump ship to someone that is better but less reliable. Of course, if dude is nice with it, he will always be busy. I've seen plenty come and go at different shops in my life. The main thing about those that don't last in one shop or the other is their professionalism. Look for a better barber OP.

I live by appts with my barber. I personally hate waiting and think it is a waist of time to be sitting in a shop for an hour or more. When I call or txt for appt, he lets me know his availability and we move from there. Never have to wait, unless the rare occasion somebody walks in and he's not cutting. If he squeezes one in that may carry over 5-10 in my appt. Or if the shop is busy he will txt me and let me know he is behind and if I want to reschedule or keep it.

Knew someone was gonna bring that up.

I got that cut while I was away at school from a ***** I only go to because he charges $5 and it has me looking clean for the weekend.

The **** didn't care tho.

But he did do me dirty. His problem was that after he's finished cutting, he'll take the razor that's not for fading, to cut off my facial hair, and he doesn't know where to stop so he just goes all around. Sometimes he'll fade over it and smooth it out, that time he didn't.

I don't be scressing because ****...its only $5 and I just want a quick clean look for whatever function is that night. laugh.gif

Smh at getting anything but a Caesar from the resident on campus barber/weed man/starting lineman. C'mon famb, son bought his entire barber kit from CVS clearance.

Nope. It's not my fault his *** got caught slipping at work. If he was really about that life he would have been ready. I just saw it as him messing with his money. Which eventually led to him getting bought out. All I did was go to another chair and my cut got finished.

Of course Saturday he's on his Hollywood ish again because the shop is busy and he's got like 3 heads in front of me. He knows I come into the shop every Saturday around 10 am and he usually tells the next customer I had called in even though I usually don't but he wasn't with that today and was tryna make me wait...I wasn't trippin, told him I would come back later and ended up coming back the next day. I come back and the shop is closed indifferent.gif I'm hitting my barber up and he isn't pickin up so in like "F it" I've been meaning to replace this ***** anyway so I hit up this spot ive been meaning to check out. Spot had a nice hood feel to it so I'm thinking "I know these cats can hook it up". Right now I'm rockin the low low cut with the beard like drake laugh.gif and it's damn near impossible to F it up. I hop in this barbers chair, tell him what I want and he's like "I gotchu" ......this ***** put the mirror in front of my head and he takes my line back and gave me the smiling hair line indifferent.gif I was bout to spazz on dude! He kept telling me it was straight and I was like nah man I'm not hearing that ****. I didn't even want him to touch it cause I didn't want him to take me back even more mean.gif

Now I'm out here with the Carl Winslow hair line and in need of a new barber mean.gifmean.gifmean.gif

Seems Hollywood for you to stroll in expecting VIP service without even making an appointment on a Saturday :lol

 

Thread is on point though :lol gotta just cross your fingers nothing happens to the good barber you finally find

 

I used to trust another barber when he was drunk :{ had a party the next day wanted to look on point and I was like I'll be fine... :{ never again. Barber I go to now doesn't mess around like that
