The job of a barber is to provide hair care services to the client in order to enhance their appearance.
Their job includes shampooing, trimming, cutting and styling hair. Some barbers will offer scalp treatments, fit hairpieces and provide face shaving for a clientele consisting mostly of men. They can also offer treatments for your nails and skin.
Along with these duties, barbers who own or operate their own salon may perform managerial duties. These duties can include hiring, firing, supervising inventory as well as advertising arrangements and ordering supplies.
A 40 hour workweek is common unless self-employed, which may mean longer hours. Since salons are busiest during the evenings and weekends, barbers must be prepared to work during those times. For barbers who are self-employed, flexible schedules and creating their own schedules may occur.
