What’s the most popular style these days? Everyone wants it short, everyone wants clippers. Personally, my favourite type is a nice neat haircut, short but nice and full all around. It gives appearance. But most people now want to take it all off. No style no nothing, just plain haircutting. Anybody can do it really, just pick up some clippers. I don’t like them myself but I give them what they want- it’s what I’m here for!
Who cuts your hair? I cut my own hair. I have done for years… I had a barber once, who gave me the worst haircut I ever had. After that, I did it myself. Of course it’s getting thinner now but I had a full head of hair before!
What’s your favourite part of being a barber? For me, it’s meeting people. I’ve gotten to know lots of people over time. You get to know what haircuts they like, what works for them. After a while, it’s not like seeing a stranger, it’s like family.
What advice would you give to an aspiring barber? Don’t be half way, be a good barber and you’ll always make a living. You have to put in the work, but you will never have to worry about anything. If you like what you’re doing, that’s what counts.
Do you have any plans to retire? No, I keep going because I like to do the work. That’s what happens, if you like your work you’ll get on.
