“Shut your mouth and listen to your barber” Oh yeah we’re so tough cause we tell our viewers to shut up. 👌

I swear I have tried, several times in the last 11 years, but it never works. I keep driving 45 miles each way, every two weeks to get a haircut with my barber.

Can I just ask a fade on sides but have something on the top?

Where I live, our "barber" options are the Walmart hair salon and a middle aged woman working from her basement. Around here our options are, short and uneven, long and shaggy with patches missing, or bald. Kmn

How do you keep them from trying to make small talk with you before the hair cut even begins?

I watched this video prior to going to the barber. Unfortunately my knowledge was useless as he didn't speak a word of English...

I had this problem when I first got a haircut in a foreign country hahaha. I went to Singapore to study, but the first time I got a haircut there I realized I didn't know how to describe my hair in English O.o. And now I don't know how to describe my hair in Japanese because I'm in Japan and I need a haircut... Woe is me!

I go to barber and say 4 back and sides, bit off top.. and come out scalped.. did I say something wrong.. ive been to about 6 different barbers in the last 2 centuries and no matter how many times I say nothing nada off top they take their fingers and proceed to slowly take more and more off top despite agreeing a length in mirror.. now I worry going in saying I want layers, a taper, no arch, short sideburns,tapered neck to go with my fat round face its like i'm telling them how to do their job... and give them a real reason to scalp me

bro my barber one time was like "yo man my daughter passed away." and was like "oh really man, sorry to hear that. i remember seeing her in the shop." he was like "nah that was my son." then it was just quiet the rest of the time. to be fair his son was like 5/6 with long braids lookin like lil bow wow..

Sorry, but being groomed by another man is hardly manly. I will say that it is quite posh and not necessarily the opposite of "manliness"... but it certainly is not a qualifier. In fact; the male who can groom himself using simple tools and skills is far more manly than the one who pays another to do so. Man is a creator and to allow another to create would negate his Will. The Will is inherently a masculine portion of the human experience and to surrender The Will is to let ones manliness "fall away". I suspect that this channel knows little of True manliness, but i like it anyhow ;P

What I don’t get is what’s wrong with keeping the natural neckline. I think that if you have medium or long hair the natural neckline is best. Even if you have short hair, there’s no shame with a natural neckline. My hair is about 5-5.5 inches long everywhere, so I’m basically along the border between medium and long hair in my opinion. This video seems to be designed for men with short hair and a taper of some sort, which I’ve noticed to be the case with most men.

I always say 2 on the sides, and short on top, and at the end my hair is down and I say cut the front short too. When I go home it's always crooked. My 'friends' look at me weird and say stuff whenever I do it, I do feel a little sad.

alex zarate (5 months ago)
So ima throw out some tips that I've gathered from my tons and tons of haircuts that ive gotten , 1. DO NOT LET A GIRL CUT YOUT HAIR EVER NO MATTER HOW GOOD PEOPLE SAY SHE IS. 2. IF THE SHOP IS BUSY AND THERE'S ONE BARBER WHO AINT BUSY(USUALLY THE ONE THAT ASKS YOU IF YOU'RE READY AS SOON AS YOU GO IN) DONT GO WITH HIM , I MEAN YEA YOU CAN GIVE HIM A TRY BUT THEY DON'T HAVE ANY CUSTOMERS FOR A REASON. 3. COMMUNICATION IS KEY KNOW THE NAMES OF YOUR HAIRCUT

Callum Mcardle (5 months ago)
This video definitely helps I normally get the usual short back and sides but I never know how much I want off the top so I just say just a trim on the top I notice that every time I say this it can be completely different each time you just need to say what you want in detail

god, i hate going to the barber. i get mass amounts of anxiety, i have no idea what hairstyle i want and i dont want to sound like an idiot. i just say the same style over and over but i hate it, i want something new but its the only thing i know... i wish i wasnt so fucking awkward...
Sofa Faso (9 months ago)
nah this era we have smartphones so i usually just show particular photos of what hair style I needed. then after the cut if i'm happy with the final touch i'll take photos of myself from all sides then saved them at one folder album. so the next haircut in time then voila, just show my phone lmao, not much talking needed thereafter. works pretty well during my travel at other cities and outside countries too
