I think you can agree with me then when I say some barbers plain suck at doing 'fros.
who you telling. back when afros was the *#*@ i had went to go get a shape before going to arkansas. the joint was bomb when i hopped out but wheni got home and washed it. the joint looked like i had slept on the right side of my head for the last 50years
worst part was that i couldnt go the nextmorning and ask dude to fix it because we got on the plane later that night. never again, never again

Same for me; *#% kind of barbers you guys going to that you complain so much about
If they mess it up that much find some1 new. I have no problems with my barber; he knows everything exactly how i want it, including mygoatee... and gets it right.

Ay check this out tho..that is a collection of pet peeves amassed over the years with trying different barbers. Not sayin that's what the one I go to does,though I tried a new one today which inspired this.

My barber always overcrowds his schedule.
He says come at 7, then calls back a 6 45 to say come at 7 30-8'*$$, then i get there at 8 and its still 2 people in front of me

I be ready to cry when i walk in and its 7 people in the shop.
Mind you he owns his own shop and hes the only barber in there.


Cant agree with the 2nd one though.
My barber gets GOD-LIKE with clippers when hes high.
I encourage him to smoke before he lines me up, hell ive paid my man in blunt form before.

My cousin is my barber though so anytime he does anything improper i make it well known that that crap wont fly.
