    barbers get bread...you determine whether or not you make ah lot of money or not because if you fresh ppl gonna mess with you if you dependable ppl gonna messwith you if your neither of those dont even bother going to barber school...but good luck with that tho bruh

    i agree.. it shudnt be..the only challenging thing about it would be gettin customers and learning how to cut with scissors and comb.. the question for me iswill it be worth going to school for it...keep in mind at my spot its 3,500$

    Do women's hair. that's where the real money is [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]. Haircuts range from $50-$70. My ex girl worked at a salon and told me she would hustle women by suggesting them to dye their hair, and she wouldpocket like and extra $20 just for that. [​IMG][​IMG]

    If you are good you'll make decent money. My barber makes a killing. But then again he owns the spot. And he's been owning a spot since he's been25 so he's been doing well for a bit. School was never for him so atleast he's doing aight doing another hustle.

    Barbering school to put you on your feet, but work on a degree at a cc. In the end, it will all pay off.

    I need to stop slacking on that barbering license as well.

    What exactly does Barber School do? My barber never went to that, cuts at his house.. gets approx 50 a day doing it I believe.. and on school events/formals hegets so many customers it aint even funny. Senior in high school making $350 a week? He's pushing a nice whip too..

    do u need to go to one in order to get a barber license?

    i know my secondary barber gets about 20-25 or even 30 heads a day at 10 per cut.. so thats about 250 per day. dudes line ups/tapers is the best ive seen.. hesmy secondary barber cuz his lines is way to long for my impatient self... dudes lines are crisp.

    One of my boys is about to finish barber school. In High school He had probably close to 50 steady customers that just came through his house to get cuts. Hewas offered a chair at a shop but wanted to learn more than just fades to keep his options open.

    If I were you, I'd go to a shop to see what the deal is for working there. They should give you info on how hard it is to get a chair, what the pay is likeand how to get customers. I think the pay is good if you build up a clientele, but I wouldn't spend too much money on school until you know you will beable to get a chair/clientele at a good shop.
