"The morning of your haircut, don't shampoo in the shower. Come in with your hair as natural as possible. This way, we have a better idea of what we're dealing with."
Asking For Help
"Don't be embarrassed to bring in a photo of a style you'd like to try. It's an awesome way of giving us a sense of what you want. Honestly, it's way better than sitting in a chair clueless, because if you don't know what you want, how would your barber?"
"If you like the cut and want to build a good relationship with your barber, a good tip is really appreciated and trust me, he'll remember you. I really don't think a specific percentage works in this situation. To me, anything $10 and over is considered really good."
Every man's head is different, but you should be maintaining your haircut with a trip to the barber every four to six weeks.
