As a barber, stylist, nail technician, make-up artist, etc., an important part of our daily work lives is being able to take a punch and keep on kicking. The sad truth is that some people like making others feel badly. We service those same people on a regular basis. If you are new to working in the barbering & cosmetology industry, you will soon learn that being able to hold your own is a key part to being able to sustain. Many people change professions because they simply don’t have what it takes to stay in this business.
Keep this in mind, no matter how good of a service you provide, some clients still won’t be pleased with your work because they aren’t pleased with themselves. Be mindful of that every day. Always think about the big picture before you respond to their negative actions. You’re there to make money while having the best possible time doing it. If everything else fails, stand your ground and give them what they’re asking for…alright, ignore that last sentence because I got carried away. Try not to give them what they’re asking for. Take the higher road and let God handle it.
Gabe, Master Barber
