Insight About Barber Services You Can Request At Your Next Appointment

Hair is a part of your body that never stops growing and needs constant attention. Appreciate the hair you have on your face and head because you can trim and style it to make your face look as unique as you are. When you are ready for your hair to get a trim and an updated or new look, here are some services you can ask for at your local barbershop to get the treatment you deserve.

Hair Cut Services

When your hair becomes a little longer than you prefer, it can start to look shaggy and not style as you would want. Getting your hair cut and trimmed to a new cut or to clean up your existing haircut can do wonders for your appearance and your self-impression. 

Your barber should consult with you prior to cutting any parts of your hair. It is important that they find out what you are looking for instead of assuming based on your current hair cut. For example, you may have had one hairstyle in the past and want to switch it up for a crew cut instead. 

Head Massage

As part of your hair services, the barber should offer to shampoo and condition your hair, which helps prepare you for the rest of the day. As they shampoo your scalp, a good massage with their fingers will help you relax and feel better. This part of the hair cut services can actually improve your mood as well because when your scalp is massaged it releases a chemical called serotonin into your bloodstream to help you increase your feeling of well being.


Shaving your face may be a reason you visit your barber on a regular basis. Your barber may offer shave services which include the use of a straight blade to go against or with the grain of your hair. This can give you a basic shave or a close shave depending on your preference.

Ask your barber about having an application of pre-shave oil on your face to provide moisturizer to your facial skin. Then, once they have shaved your face to your liking, they may provide an application of steamed towels, a facial massage, and an aftershave treatment with a cold towel.

Extra Services

Your barber may also provide some additional services to you during your barber appointment. You can have your eyebrows trimmed or get a hand paraffin wax treatment to soften your hands and relax you. Then, ask to find out if they offer a back and hand massage to help provide you further relaxation.
