How to Put It Down For Weekend Service
Thursday, Friday & Saturday are the best days for most barbers. It’s also the part of the week that requires the most energy & focus due to increase in traffic. Your clients are going out so they’re pouring into your shop to get their swag on. Without school there are more kids in the shop, especially Saturday for which a good dose of patience is in order.
To deal with the increased clientele have your techniques down pact so there’s no guessing what you’re going to do head to head. For particular clients & heavy tippers spend more time catering to them. I tell my clients after a cut “no matter what let the cut speak for you.” Clients trust that we’re going to make them look better than the next man/woman & their confidence & value goes up. A bad haircut can lead to bad attitudes, hats as cover up & losing clients to another barber.
At my barbershop, Liquid Styles, the weekend kicks off on Thursday evening with complimentary cigars & cocktails amongst clients & employees of legal age. The conversation is great, environment is relaxed. This sends people home feeling great with Friday & Saturday still coming.
