Top Five Things People Hate About Barbershops

We’ve all been there in need of a fresh cut… wolfing like we know we shouldn’t be. So we head down to the local barber shop and what do we get… You already know! We face one if not all of these five things!

Top Five Things People Hate About Barbershops

Long time waiting.

It almost seems like your whole neighborhood knows when you plan on going to the barber shop. Every time you roll up to get your Ceasar freshened up you have to endure the long wait times sitting next to dudes who smell like they’ve been running full court in the hot sun all day. Waiting is bad enough, but it’s even worse when you have an appointment or scheduled time to get your cut and your barber has that one client before you that decides he wants the works or this ridiculous hair cut that takes forever to create.  Or what about you (and every other client your barber has) getting that text or fb message from your barber saying “come through empty seat” but when you get in there’s a line 5-10 deep waiting!

Rash City

Oh yeah you know you got one before… That nasty rash on your face because your barber didn’t sterilize his clippers and other tools properly. You wash your hair and keep yourself clean but not all the people in your neighborhood do. When your barber cuts them before you and doesn’t have time to clean his tools guess where those nasty germs go… YUP on you and in your pores… Hence, Rash City!

Too Much Talk

We all know the barber shop is like a gentlemen’s club or grown  man hangout, but sometimes the conversations are just plain dumb, or a bit extra. We all like arguing sports or why a rapper is the king. But can the conversation ever change. Why is it that two weeks ago we all agreed that LeBron is no Michael Jordan (yet), Kendrick Lamar’s verse on control was one of the greatest verses ever, and Biggie still is the “King of New York”. Sometimes you just want to get a darn hair cut without having to be one of the great debaters.

Jacked up Swag

So you sit and wait 2 hours to get your cut and sit in the chair for 30 minutes all eager to see your “1 on the side, 1.5 on the top “, but your barber was so caught up in the 2 week old debate in the shop he gives you the wrong cut! So know you have to wait 2-3 week before he’s able to fix your do.

Breaking The Bank

Ok some people may say $10 – $20 a cut isn’t much, but when you start looking at it from a longterm stand point all those dollar bills add up. When you throw in the $3- $5 tip you’re looking at a cool $400 – $500 a year, double or triple that if you’re paying for your sons to get cuts too.

We throw the question: What’s the most frustrating thing about going to the barber shop? on our Facebook page and interestingly enough the responses we got where dead on point across the board. Here are some of the responses we got:

Louis Amequohi Shorter Having to wait 2hrs for a cut

Jeremiah Curley Oh yeah 15$-$20 is too much for a fade

Michael Martinez I know I mean ten dollars is good enough, (but) I be tipping 6 dollars too!

Dion Cherry You have an appointment, arrive a few minutes early and not only is a customer in the chair but another customer is waiting ahead of you.

Julian Wilson knowing that u could of cut your own hair using the self cut system and still comes out the same. Cutting it the way u want.

Until next time… Stay Fresh, 365!

Cut Your Own Hair

We have all had bad experiences at the barbershop and most first response would be to find a new barber. What most people don’t know is many, like myself, have venture out into learning how to cut your own hair after such experiences. Learning to cut your own hair is very beneficial and it takes a lot of dedication for one to actually learn how to cut their own hair. It has been the sole mission of the Self Cut System to make it easier for “Self barbers” to cut with their revolutionary 3 way mirror.

Benefits of Cutting Your Own Hair:

#1 Cutting your own hair will save you a lot money.
 Getting your hair cut on a weekly basis can be expensive. On average, I used to spend about 80 dollar a month on haircuts plus tips. This is almost about 1,000 dollars a year that I could have spend on something else like my other bills and (maybe some new clothes and sneakers)

#2 You can avoid the hassle of the barbershop. Imagine not having to wait in long lines, listen to meaningless conversation, pay $20 a cut and cross your fingers in hopes that the barber got the cut correct. Well, you can avoid all of that by being able to cut your own hair. By cutting your own hair you can escape all of the barbershop

#3 Staying well groomed at all times. 
By cutting your own hair you don’t have any valid excuse of not looking your best at all time. The lady’s tend to be more attracted to men that take pride in their appearance. There have been times when I needed a cut for a last minute occasion and because of my self cut system skills I was able to attend the interview looking fresh as if I went to a barber.

#4 You are your own best barber
, from the very first time I cut my own hair. I did it with the intention to get the desire look that I wanted. Sometimes barbers can’t see your vision and that’s where being my own best barber comes into play. Occasionally I feel like rocking a Mohawk or sometimes I want a bald fade. I’m never scared to try new things with my hairstyle and if I mess-up I feel good that I didn’t pay someone 20 bucks to do so. I often get complemented on my hairstyles and people tend ask for my barber’s information and they’re usually surprised to know that I cut my own hair. “The sooner you start cutting your hair, the sooner you’ll start getting better at it. You will become a personal barber to the most important client you’ll ever have – yourself. (Millionaire Hoy)”
