Monumental Advice for Barber That Change Style

I’ve always had a disorganized mess on my Station while I’m cutting, I throw guards on the counter while I’m walking in My cuts. I take scissors and put them arbitrarily. I’m doing the work, so it doesn’t matter what happens while I’m doing it, does it?

That’s not to say I was a complete mess in my past, just disorganized when I cut.

After all, who notices such small dots? In hairdressing salons, the customer looks elsewhere, doesn’t he?

I have recently started to break my Routine, especially when it comes to my Service, my cleanliness and the basics of the Haircut.

I realized that my Routine had a lot of gaps and I started changing my habits. I think shaving works best in a system, and the more organized the system, the better the Service you can offer from top to bottom.
Recently I studied one of my colleagues, someone who is very successful in his business. I always take my free time to break down what my colleagues do differently from me.

I noticed that during the Haircut, he was very methodical, each part of the haircut could easily be broken down into steps, fluid movements, controls and balances, creating an impeccable ensemble.

Maybe I’ve been reading a bit, but I’m going to bring my moments Of inspiration where I can get them.

Add that I listened to a Podcast that recommended the book ‘The Checklist Manifesto’ that I extracted from the library and that I am currently reading.

In addition, I started making appointments at my house on Sundays so that I could create videos for my YouTube channel. That’s why I started using the calendar and the note-taking function on my phone.

I told my dad about it and he said“ “Well, it looks like you’re starting to be accountable to yourself.”

Sometimes life presents you with all the right information at the same time, and in connection with the desire to change for the better, I began to include my own systems in My workflow.

My past I would say something like: “it takes all the creativity out of the Haircut”, but I disagree, it provides a basis that allows more creativity at the moment. It takes all the thought out of the process and allows you to channel it into the idea of what is best for your client.

How does this apply?

You may be wondering what I’m talking about, how all this applies to the Haircut.

This means organizing your Station so that it looks perfect for everyone looking…at at any time, even in the middle of worship. It means putting your tools back where you have them, it means cleaning your tools as you go on.

This means documenting every step of your process and accurately checking whether you are acting as carefully and efficiently as possible with each customer who passes by your chair.

This adds a completely different layer to the service idea, it can allow you to create a service for someone who feels perfectly comfortable for them from the moment they walk in the door until the moment they leave for several appointments.

This is one of those ideas that no one will notice on the outside, but it will provide the customer with a Service that he will not receive anywhere else, and the customers will notice it.
Let me get started
So, how do I get started?

Delete any tools/ideas that you don’t use.

Clean your Station of everything except your essential tools. Be ruthless, bring your tools to the bare necessities.

Organize your Station in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Pretty self-explanatory here. Break it every night and put it back in place every morning or just after taking it apart again.

Now, take the time to sit down and write down each step of your Service from the moment your customer walks through the door until they leave.

Here is the example of my List which includes hair and beard services. This does not include the razor shaving process, as I am currently working on it.

It’s a long List, it’s clear to me, but it’s something that can be divided into steps or shorter checklists that allow you to modify and organize each part of the service.

Feel free to adapt, or use this List for yourself. If you think this can be improved, feel free to leave your lists in the comments below, because I would love to see them.

As the owner, give it to the people at your hair salon, let them watch and discuss it. I believe that a house style helps everyone to offer a similar Service, something that people can talk about, something that helps them distinguish themselves from others.
