Advice for barbers

Don't complain that people are too dumb to leave you tips. You need to work for them.

I come in. After the wait (something that will not be discussed right now, but ALWAYS provide honest wait estimates) I get to sit down.

You ask me what I want. Never mind the fact that at some times I do not know what I want, and would like to try something new, but don't know how to ask for it. Can I say "whatever will look best on me?". That will be WORTH A LOT.

And you immediately forget what I just told you. Or you just decide to proceed cutting to whatever image you had in your mind of your request. How hard would it be to stop for five seconds, and show how short the cut will be???

If I come in with a long hair style, why do you ALL BARBERS assume that I asked for A RADICAL MAKEOVER WITH THE SHORTEST CUT OF MY LIFE?

You spend 15 minutes chopping my hair screwing with a look I and other people around me are used to, and want a large tip?

DID YOU EVEN STOP TO THINK that this is one of few services that can drastically screw up my image (face surgery would be another one on the short list).

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD NEVER WHEN SOMEONE SAYS HE WANTS LONG HAIR DO THEY EVER WANT ANYTHING OTHER THAN A SCISSOR CUT.

Guys: my advice - stop going to male barber shops if you have been screwed like this and you usually want a scissor cut. If you like your hair long, go to unisex or women-staffed barber shop.

STOP TALKING ACROSS THE WHOLE FLOOR WHEN YOU ARE CHOPPING MY HAIR.

There was a young girl in the unisex place I was visiting. She would pull up my hair and SHOW me how long it was going to be cut. She would say that she liked that style as well. She gave me a card with her first name written down. GUESS WHAT she's not working there anymore. The person(s) who does work have been described above.

DON'T ASK ME IF I LIKE THIS CUT AFTER YOU ARE DONE. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO DO NO, GROW IT BACK? ASK ME WHEN IT WOULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE.

I just relived the fact that once again (did not happen for some time since I did not go to male shops) that I will have to wait for a month just to get a decent-length hair that is not going to make me look ugly.

TIP TIP TIP IF YOU WANT TO MAKE MONEY AND NOT COMPAIN ABOUT TIPS, SELL GUYS ON HAIR WASHES. THAT IS, IF IT IS GOING TO BE DONE BY A DECENT LOOKING GIRL. NOT SOMEONE WITH ROCK HARD AND ROCK COLD FINGERS.

 

WANT A HUGE TIP? GIVE ME A STYLE MAKEOVER, NOT A HAIR LENGTH MAKEOVER. BUT I AM NOT A GIRL, SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR A STYLE MAKEOVER. IF YOU CAN MAKE ME LOOK CUTE WITH THE SAME BORING STYLE THAT I ALWAYS HAVE THEN I WILL BE IN YOUR DEBT. BUT NO, I CAN'T DO IT MYSELF AT HOME, AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR IT.
