So you are new to the area, or are fed up with those assembly line "what number are you?" style shops and are looking to get established with a new barber. There are a few ways to go about finding the perfect match for you. The average man gets a haircut every 3-6 weeks, so finding a barber you can go to regularly will take a lot of the headache out of switching around, and risking one of those embarrassing haircuts that everyone has experienced in their life.
The first thing to do if you are new to the area is ask around, or approach someone that has a haircut you admire, and ask them where they get their haircut.
Another way is to go to a reputable shop, and ask which barber is the best at whichever style you are seeking. A professional shop should be happy to refer you to the barber they think would be best suited to your style.
If you are looking for more of a standard style of haircut, I suggest trying each barber in the shop, until you find the perfect match. The conversation should be easy going, and you should always leave the barber chair feeling happy and confident.
Lastly, don't ever feel guilty switching or trying new barbers in a shop, and don't ever feel bad about waiting for your favorite barber. You are the master of your own hair, and each barber tends to build a clientele that suits their own personality. So be sure to let your barber know how much you appreciate them, and they should be letting you know how much they appreciate you as well.
