If you need to go to the barbershop, it's best to schedule an appointment. You can schedule an appointment in person if you prefer to book your appointment with the barber of your choosing, or you can call or even schedule a barbershop appointment online.
If you have never scheduled a haircut before or if you are used to having someone else do it for you, then this is a great guide for you to help you get the most out of your experience. You can get a men's cut in a short time and can even schedule one as a walk-in, but for peace of mind and easier time management, it's best to schedule a barbershop appointment every time. Here's how.
Know the time you want to get a haircut
It's best to not get a haircut right before a special event since you want your hair to settle and have time to clean up after your cut before your event. You can schedule a barbershop appointment a few hours in advance of a special occasion if you wish; keep your time constraints in mind as you do so.
This same logic applies to scheduling a haircut around work or other responsibilities. If you're getting a same-day men's hair trim, try to do it after work or after school, not before.
Know how you want your haircut
Try to schedule with the same barber you normally go to if you can, even if you just need a trim. Know how you want your hair cut and bring pictures or hairstyles in magazines or websites you like with you so your barber has something to go off of. If you need a fade or special style, let your barber know when you schedule your haircut so you can be booked at a time where your barber can give you the most attention.
Know where your barbershop is
In other words, be on time. Your barber has several clients in a day and cannot wait several minutes for you to show up. Know where your barbershop is located, show up on time, and if you need to cancel your appointment, do so by calling as soon as you can. If you'll be late, let your barber know so they can either reschedule you or know to relax while they wait for you to arrive. Once you have scheduled your first barbershop appointment, you'll be in the system and can easily schedule more in the future.
