I don’t know about you but a bad day at the barbers means at least two long agonizing weeks of waiting for the next opportunity to go back. Whether we like to admit it or not, some of the most trusted relationships we form are with our hairstylists and barbers.
I remember a few years ago when I went to Freetown, Sierra Leone for a two weeks’ holiday. I was having such a great time with friends and family I decided to extend it. The only downside to my extension was the fact that I was due for a haircut. With my barber of 15 years’ thousands of miles away in London, I decided to gamble my peace of mind with a local barber. Let’s just say that was the last time I ever cheated on my barber.
If you are thinking your peace of mind does not only rest on the shoulders of your stylist or barber then you are absolutely right. In fact, that’s the whole point of this article. The products you use on your hair is just as important as getting a good haircut. In fact, I would argue that a great grooming regime makes for a great time at the barbers whether you keep your hair long or short.
