Persons wanting to become barbers must have finger dexterity and a sense of form and artistry. They should enjoy dealing with the public and be willing and able to follow patrons’ instructions. Because hairstyles are constantly changing, barbers must keep abreast of the latest fashions and barber techniques. Business skills are important for those who plan to operate their own salons. Many schools help their students find jobs. Advancement usually is in the form of higher earnings as barbers gain experience and build a steady clientele, but many manage larges salons or open their own after several years of experience. Additional Career Opportunities for barbers are as follow:
Beauty Magazine Editor
Barber School Instructor/ OJT Instructor
State Board Member
