If a year of inconsistent haircuts has taken a toll on you or perhaps lockdown has inspired you to ditch the skin fade and go for something new, you need to find a good barber. However, with the post-lockdown rush in full swing and long wait times for all services including seeing your barber, it may be time to try something new!

Don't worry, we've got some top tips on how to find a great barbershop or mobile barber.

Checking out their reviews

One of the best things you can do is check out barber reviews. This is a great way of reading honest feedback from previous customers so you don't go in blind when choosing the right person for the job. Look out for the most important information such as the quality of the haircut including if it met their expectations, customer service and price. If the reviews tick all of your boxes then it could be a sign that the barber is a good choice for your needs.

Finding a good range of services

There are so many different styles of cutting hair and every day has their preference so make sure the barber can meet your requirements. For example, if you'd like a skin fade then check that it's listed as a barber service so you know you're in safe hands. You might also think about additional services like a beard trim or finding a mobile barber that's convenient for you. Whatever your needs are put them are the forefront of your search and you'll find someone to match.

Look for confidence

Don't be afraid of asking questions. If you want to know more about their skin fade service, beard trim knowledge or something else, go ahead and ask. You can tell a lot just from the answers they give such as the confidence in their reply. The last thing you want is to be unhappy with your cut, so look for someone who knows what they're doing and your new barber will cut and style your hair just how you like it.

Browse their photo gallery

As well as checking out reviews, take a look at any photo galleries available too - their reviews may be great, but having the photo evidence to match will narrow down your search. A good range of photos will not only show the results that each barber can produce but before and after photos will give you a better idea of how skilled they are.
