Charge what your time is worth. I work at a high end hair salon and charge $55 for a mens cut. $65 for women. I never knock another stylist who works at supercuts, haircuttery etc...if they do a good job on your hair then so be it...

I wash my hair before getting a cut already. I think it makes for a better hair cut. I pay 20 including a tip. If he wanted to make a case for 25 then maybe...but $50!?!? He's bugging

As a former Barber, I'll say that's absurd to charge $50 for just a haircut. Only way it may make sense is providing total service package (by appointment only, shampoo, massage, hair enhancements, and razor finish) with no tip expected cause it's already factored in the pay. Honestly, $25+ is a good price point for a "good Barber". But at the end of the day if you really that good and people like your service then they will pay more for it then your average Joe.

My barber has a $25 base for hair and beard, but I give $35 per cut and see him maybe twice a month. Three if I've got sh*t going on, but there've been times I want full beast and waited six weeks.

Got my own clippers and I'm decent with the blade for my beard, but I know I'm not handling the back right, or my tapered blends. I don't care how experienced y'all might be, we all need eyes and capable hands back there.

End of the day, if you've got a local barber who's just your "mans" and he flips trees and fire sticks while he's cutting your hair, then sure, giving $20/cut might be perfect.

But my barber held me down when I got married, job interviews, times I was being photographed, whatever. He makes sure that if I just walk in, he's telling people who've been waiting that I have an appointment. He knew when a balm I was using was giving me bumps and switched it out. I'm older now and my hairline is fading in the corners, and he put me on to some holding gels that cover that up without making me look like a bachata singer.

I thought about Chappelle's Show when the barber found out Dave got $50 million & wanted to charge $11k. Dave said "For 11k shave my balls then, come on get the cuttin' "

Get you some oster fast feeds and some t outliner and watch some youtube videos and learn to cut your hair. My barber was a real one he'd have me come to shop and watch me cut my hair until I got the hang of it

But you catch my drift. You don't go to a hood barber, you go to Super Cuts and ritzy a*s places like that. Blacks don't have to go there we chose too, for whatever reason.........you HAVE to go to places like that, because you can't go to a hood barber shop due to your hair texture.
We go to mexican barbershops

Idk what you mean by hair goop tho

Also supercuts is not ritzy

I drop 40 every two weeks. My guy has an appointment for my and I'm in and out in an hour. Them 20 dollar cuts take too long if it's more than one head you're paying 50. I have a dope 20 dollar guy that will do me right but he's far away.
