Successful barbering is often more than offering a variety of services. Barbers must maintain high standards of personal neatness and keep their shop or work area immaculate. Quality work must be performed but, more often than not, a barber's success comes from putting customers at ease, giving them quick and courteous service, and knowing when to talk--and when to listen.
Barbers work in very close contact with customers and therefore must have a pleasing personality and excellent personal habits. It almost goes without saying that a barber must be neat, tactful, courteous, able to get along with people, and an excellent conversationalist.
Potential barbers must be in good health and have finger dexterity plus the ability to acquire academic knowledge. Good eyesight and hearing are important and age is usually no barrier to employment. A high school education is recommended and studies considering the profession should take courses in English, Social Studies, Business, Bookkeeping and Biology.
