008: Business Advice For Barbers, Hairstylists, And Others In Personal Care Services Will Lucas On Business

    • Careers

I witness barbers turn down $50-$60 an hour regularly. Breaks my heart.
The shop is a social place, but its a business first. If people aren't making money, then there's ultimately no shop to go to. Too many barbers forget that they're in the *service* business and make their customers feel like its a privilege to be in their chair. They may not say it, but they show it by behaviors that don't express appreciation. And if you're trying to build your business, your actions should match it -- use the tools you have to get butts in your chair instead of wasting precious time liking pics on IG.
I'm really good at cutting my own hair, so hate me if you want for this rant. I just hope this video helps you grow your client roster and build a reputation for valuing peoples time AND for giving dope fades.
