Hair never stops growing… barbering is time and recession-proof, so you will always be in demand.


Neighborhood barbershops are, once again, gaining in popularity as men of all ages realize that there’s simply no substitute for a great cut from a great barber. Add a hot towel treatment followed by the closest shave of their lives, some great conversation, and a super cool, relaxing atmosphere, and men are flocking to barber shops faster than ever.


In this career, you get to help people look and feel their best. Whether they’re preparing for a job interview, cleaning up for an anniversary celebration, or just stopping by for their regular appointment, you get to perform a service that makes people feel good. And there’s no better occupational reward than that.
